On September 26, 2015 I got to stay at the Best Western Premier Saratoga Resort Villas for one night. The resort did accommodate me with a complimentary stay, but this did not impact my review and all opinions are my own. For my full disclosure policy please click HERE.

I knew I was going to be visiting the Disney area for the weekend of September 26, 2015 because I wanted to do a bar hop similar to one that some of my pals on facebook have done annually for the past few years. They call it the “Happiest Hour on Earth” and during this bar hop they visit several of the Disney hotels and have an adult beverage at the bars of each location. Knowing that by recreating this for myself and my husband it would mean lots of drinking and being the responsible (sometimes) adult that I am we decided it would be best to stay the night in the Disney area to avoid potential DUIs, accidents or other drinking and then driving issues. Enter Best Western Premier Saratoga Resort Villas!

Located a short drive from Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Best Western Premier Saratoga Resort Villas offers a complimentary shuttle to the Disney area. Unfortunately, we arrived too late to get on said shuttle which meant that my husband officially became the designated driver for the day and night, but we were grateful for the night’s stay anyway because by the end of our adventure we were so tired that the thought of driving all the way back to Tampa exhausted us even more.

Anywho, onto the pros and cons of the resort:

PROS:

  • we got a kick ASH two bedroom townhouse to stay in for the night
  • Gated community so you know you’re going to be safe for the night!
  • The AC worked great and there were fans in the rooms for awesome circulation
  • super comfy beds and pillows!!! I forgot where I was and slept so well!
  • The toiletries were Neutrogena products and they smelled good and left us squeaky clean
  • The property felt more like homes than a hotel
  • Great kitchen complete with stovetop, microwave, dishwasher, full fridge, pots & pans, plateware, glassware, utensils and more that would have made for an awesome long stay away.
  • Hairdryer in the bathroom
  • Iron and ironing board
  • High-speed Internet access included with resort fee
  • Non-smoking property- LOVE this because I hate me some cancer sticks ya’ll!
  • Friendly staff
  • restaurant located on site
  • Pool on site
  • Coin laundromat on site
  • Gym on site

CONS

  • small bathrooms – we had to close one of the bathroom doors just to comfortably sit on the toilet
  • small shower and the water pressure was low, but at least the water was hot! (more than I can say for some of my showers at home)
  • the hot tub was under construction, but given that the weekend we visited it was kind of rainy this didn’t affect our stay
  • Breakfast is not included with your stay
  • We did have a strange thumping that wouldn’t stop in our first room, but the management quickly moved us to another room after discovering we had a problem with the first one and all was well after that!

Overall, our stay at the Best Western Premier Saratoga Resort Villas was exceptionally pleasant. Other than our need to move to another room, I honestly can’t complain about the property. It was nice that it didn’t feel like a hotel and that the staff was so friendly. I would definitely recommend this property if you’re coming to Disney or just to Kissimmee for the weekend or longer. Discounts are available for AAA members, AARP members and government personnel. *Frugal tip- Save money by bringing another couple with you and splitting the nightly fee! There are also three bedroom villas available for larger parties.
