We stayed 2 nights last week at OKW for our first visit. We were assigned a studio in building 14, right by the bridge into the resort. You could hear every bus as it came into and went out of the resort - our balcony was right by the road. You could hear the noise inside the villa, as well as on the balcony. I would not recommend that location to anyone who wants a quiet, peaceful vacation.

Any room close to the road will hear bus traffic. OKW was built so long ago that I know that the windows aren't insulated and maybe the walls too!

We just got back from our first OKW stay, a studio in #50. Our view was the air-conditioners and utility box.

We just checked out this morning We were in the Hospitality House section in building 62... On Millers Rd just across Peninsular Rd from the Hospitality House - it was less than 2 minutes to the bus stop. We had a 1 bedroom villa with a view of a pond/fountain. We loved it and didn't want to leave!

We stayed in #1110 with a view of foliage. Didn't really matter since the weather was rainy, so I never had much of a chance to sit on the patio. However, the location was perfect in relation to HH. Couldn't have been much better....quick walk across a parking lot and we were at HH.

We could also get off the bus at the Penninsular Rd stop and make it back to the room before the same bus pulled in to the HH stop. Actually, DH went back to the room for something, got off at P. Rd, walked to the room, and went to the HH stop to return to the park. The bus that pulled in next was the one that had just dropped him off.

I think we were in building 39...on the end closest to 38. We could hear some road noise from Bonnet Creek Pkwy when out on our balcony, but not so bad. We did get woken early one morning to guys mowing the grass along the parkway. But it was mostly a nice quiet location with an easy walk to the turtle pond area pool as well as the turtle pond bus stop. It is a hike to the HH and main pool area. Even though we had our car, my DH made us walk it...ugggg!

Sorry about that. Did you ask for another room? Is all of building 50 like that?

I believe we were in building 24 this summer. We had view of pond and golf course with some tree obstruction. We had four teens with us and loved being across the street from the HH. Since the bus stopped last at HH before heading to the parks, we started catching it there instead of at our own stop. (It's a long bus trip around that resort.)

I recently had room 6227, a second floor studio. Had foliage but could see and hear the fountain behind. It was an end unit near the road. It was located on the end towards the HH. It was very convenient as there was an elevator in the building as well as steps away from the door. I did hear a few busses but it really did not bother me as I was never in the room much.
The convenience of the proximity to HH, the boat to DD, the excellent condition of the room, and access to my car were more important to me that hearing some bus noise.

I was there only 2 nights though, and moved to a 1 bedroom presidential at Wyndham Bonnet Creek that I liked even more.
