I am going to WDW in late August and will be staying at the Polynesian for 7 nights/8 days (great deal with Fairy Tale Special). However, we needed a hotel for 2 nights prior. Came across the great thread - BEST Offsite hotel experience / WORST offsite experience - that has been running from June 2002 to present and currently has 193 postings. Being a researcher, I was interested in knowing which hotels were cited most in each category. I'm initiating this new thread so the tally will not be lost in the 13 pages in the previous posting. Sorry, but I am assumming some of these Hotels named are the same, but the posting authors used the wrong name - BEST HOTELS VOTES Marriott Orl.

I think this shows that the lower cost hotels are not as highly rated. There were a few posters that were realistic and said "what do you expect for $30ish a night!" I would say that if you are not willing to pay at least $55/night, then don't expect the Taj Mahal. Keep the responses coming. The previous thread has certainly helped in my research of hotels (HIFS, MOWC, or Vistana Villages).
