My Nick Hotel Review

First let me start off by saying that my family loves Disney World. We usually stay on property even if we are planning to go to Sea World. We decided to do something a little different this year. My daughter loves Dora so we decided on the Nick Hotel. This hotel was not cheap. I think we paid about $205 a night. We stayed three nights. We were not impressed at all. I hate to be negative but I just wanted to post the reasons why we did not like the hotel, it was not worth it's price tag. Here are the reasons:

1. Way to crowded!!!! We went to the pool one evening and there were atleast 200 people in the pool. Kids, adults - people were everywhere. I was too nervous to let my kids who are 4 and 5 swim. There were people jumping off the sides of the pool, throwing balls etc. I only counted 4 lifeguards. There was NOT enough supervision for this crowd, believe me. We also tried the pool at 9 am the next morning. Same thing. The slides opened around 9:15 and by 9:45 lines were everywhere. My kids were ready to go because they were getting ran over or cut in line.

2. Filthy. There were babies in the pool with expanding diapers and no bathing suit. The diapers were so filled with water they were literally coming off. Also the maid service was a joke. The grounds and the halls in the hotel (steps) were just gross.

3. Noise, we could here children running up and down the halls until 2 am.

4. Expensive- The food was way overpriced. They will even charge you $5 if you don't return your towel. Every activity cost money and is way overpriced.

I can say that the best thing about the hotel was the arcade.

I know there are different strokes for different folks. We just will not return to this hotel again. We did try to check out early but they were going to charge us one night stay plus a $75 check out fee. We just left first thing in the morning and came back late at night. All in all - For $205 a night I would of rather been on Disney property, it is much cleaner. I've stayed at POP Century in summer and thought it was crowded, this was 3 times that.
