How could Pop be possibly run down? It is only 5 years old. There wouldn't be any need for updates yet. I would hope that the All Stars have been updated more recently than the Pop since it is only 5 years old.

We have stayed at POP and are going back this July. Most recently we stayed at CBR in Feb and as far as rooms go, there is not much difference!

We loved POP, I'm sure you will too!

Our first trip we stayed at SSR, and our second at PC. We had a terrific time both trips!

While Pop in no way compares to Saratoga Springs, it was still very nice and functional. Remember that it is a value resort, so all of the "bells and whistles" may not be there but it was nice, functional, and clean!

We checked for bedbugs, believe you me, but found none (at either resort). I think the "mousekeeping" was actually better at Pop Century than it was at SSR! Our room was kept clean at Pop Century! We got numerous towel animals at PC and even came back to the room and found an unexpected anniversary card and balloon bouquet (anniversary date was noted on ADR but did not expect anything to be done at the resort, or even at Boma's for that matter, we were pleasantly surprised both places)!

Pop Century is themed really cute, you could spend a day just strolling the sidewalks and reading signs, looking at the huge icons and decorations, looking at the lobby shadowboxes, ect... there are some great things to see there! I spent several hours exploring on my scooter, while "my guys" went on a fishing excursion and really enjoyed seeing what PC had to offer.

Would we stay there again? Absolutely... without hesitation!

The price was wonderful, rooms nice and clean, needs met, extras brought when ask (towels, toiletries), staff pleasant, food court busy but decent, decor cute and well themed, and it has dedicated buses (no sharing)!

We're Pop-jockeys. We've stayed at the deluxes as well as the mods but not at the AllStars. For us, we LOVE Pop, and don't find the resort to be overwhelming. We get 4th floor lake views which are to die for and very tranquil, especially early in the morning. We also like the dedicated bus service, which in our opinion is top-notch. The only down side of Pop that we can figure out is that we have to leave all too soon!!! You'll enjoy it very much, make sure to have your camera handy at all times, and have fun.

I have stayed at all the values and liked them all. We were at Music in 2007...it was great with all the renovated rooms. POP was Aug 2008, had no complaints at all...the rooms were very nice. We found a shortcut to the bus stop through the parking lot so we didn't have to walk up front everytime. We were in the 80's section. Took a quick trip to Sports in Dec 08 and that was great too...we are going back there in August.

I've stayed at Pop twice and was very happy both times. This year we are staying at ASMu just for a change, but would not hesitate to go back to POP.

We absolutely LOVE POP! We've stayed there over 6 times, in many different buildings/eras and had nothing but great experiences each time. The resort is only like 5 years old, I have no idea how it could be run down. It certainly wasn't on any of our trips. You won't be disappointed. I wouldn't change the ressie even if I could; just my .02
