I need comfort from those that have been there in late June.

This is cutting into our budget for lodging so are any nice clean family places to stay off site for the remaining portion of our trip. Anywhere from 6-9 nights. Can I expect to find a nice place for $100/night or less?
A couple of us responded to your first question in the other thread. You can check previous years' June rates in the old date and rate threads. Just do a search.

Any of the hotels on Major Blvd. are good for close and clean and pretty cheap.

i gave you some websites to check out for offsite places.


remember, think twice before you stay at Days Inn on Major blvd.
read all of trip advisors comments on that place if you are still in the decision making process of where to stay.

That Days Inn is on Caravan Ct. if you're checking trip advisor. Check the ones further down Major, such as La Quinta, Holiday Inn Express, etc. They are a bit cheaper because they are a bit further away.

We made the mistake of staying there when we got into town a day early. It was the scariest experience I have ever had at a hotel. I stayed awake most the night, I just did not feel safe there. It has really gone down hill since I lived in Orlando, my brother also picked it up the next year (did not listen) for one night and then moved out.

I would definitely do the RPR for 2 nights, then maybe look at a timeshare. You can save a lot of money by spending a morning listening to the timeshare speech, then have the rest of the week free to do as you please. The only one I ever did was a nice place and we saved a ton of $$$. That might make you feel better about the RPR price. But staying onsite is worth it.
