No one has answered my question yet. Can anyone tell me what kind of coffee filters the coffee machines take? The flat bottomed kind or the cone shaped kind? Thank you.

How are the beds at this hotel?? We stayed in one of their properties in the WI Dells and I was shocked as to how uncomfortable the beds were.

I am wondering about the coffee maker filters too...basket or cone style for coffee makers in the 2 bedroom presidential unit?

They say the recipe for Sprite is lemon and lime, but I tried to make it at home....There's more to it than that!

We had a great experience at Bonnet Creek over New Year's Eve. I wrote about our visit to Deep Blu over at the Grand if anyone is considering dining there. A great option for seafood!

Last June our coffee maker used a cone shaped filter (and had the gold permanent fileter). We were in a Pres unit in Tower 6. It was a Cuisinart Coffee Maker.

The ones Wyndham provides you with are the flat bottomed kind but those didn't necessarily fit properly in the coffee maker because the coffee maker had a gold Filter. It would need a cone shaped filter.

However, I had no problem using the provided filter in the gold filter.

Would you mind PM me your quote and where did you book? I am planning to go Orlando anywhere from mid April to the first week of May. Thanks.

We have a 1 bedroom deluxe booked from 4/14 - 4/21 (saturday-saturday) and will be checking in at approx. 5 PM.

I want nothing more than a high floor (10th floor or higher). Lake view would be nice but the high floor is what I want the most.

What are my chances? Last time we were put on the fourth floor looking at a parking lot and it was a real bummer.

Should I call ahead? Beg when I get to the front desk? I really, really want this bad. Our honeymoon in 2010 was on the 11th floor looking at the lake and it was so special. My grandma is an owner and we will be guests checking in.

FYI Bonnet Creek kicks so much butt. I recommend it SO SO SO highly.

I just booked two bedroom deluxe and three bedroom deluxe with Vacation Strategy. They were the lowest price comparing with utopia and ken and denise. Hopefully everthing goes smoothly.

What are the renovated buildings so far? Our yougest kid is 8 so we don't need to be near a kiddie pool but they are little bit adventurous at this point so what building should I request? Anyone???

TIA

Thank you very much. I don't care for the gold filters. I am a coffee snob of sorts, and also have stomach problems. The gold filter lets too much sediment and oil through that makes for very harsh coffee (IMO). I prefer the paper filters. That info helps very much. We will bring some filters with us! Thanks again.

I got the quote last October. I understand that they raised the price this year which was alot higher than what I got last year. They honored the quote for me.

Hi, I did not read the whole thread. I have recommended Bonnet Creek to my brother and his wife after reading reviews here. One question though, will they be hounded to go through a presentation? I read at the beginning of the thread to turn off the room phone, etc. Is this still a problem. If they will ask and my brother says he is not interested, will they leave it at that?
Thank-you.
Will the desk accept garden grocer for them? Also, is it possible to send a package ahead of time with snacks?
Thanks again.

We are renting a 2 bedroom Deluxe. We will also be renting a full size crib for our youngest...I was told that the fullsize crib will fit between the two beds in the second bedroom? I'm just hoping I don't have to put one of the kids in the livingroom/den area. Has anyone ever put a full size crib in one of the rooms? Thank you.
