The good: 1) Excellent location to get to Disney World (just of I-4 but not so close that you can hear the Interstate) 2)Sleep Number Beds (If you like adjustable firmness via an inflatable mattress with an airpump) 3)Can buy park passes at the hotel front lobby (same offers as everywhere else. ie no discount for one day only and discounts once you do multiple day passes, etc) 4) They have a 100% satisfaction guarantee and seem to do their best to honor it. (Manager on Duty did his best to resolve an issue with their 3rd party shuttle service to Disney World) 5) Seemed like nice pool areas and main lobby/ restaurants. (we didn't have time to visit them) The bad: 1) You will be charged a resort fee a day (2011). This is NOT a resort. I booked through hotels.com and then had to pay the extra hotel resort fee for access to "internet, shuttles and other amenities at the hotel" 2) The hotel is old but OK. People are saying 30 years maybe. They were doing remodeling and renovations while I was there. 3) We asked to have a room far away from the elevators and ice machines. The woman said "no problem" and gave us a room two doors down from the elevator. 4) Their 3rd party shuttle service (Platinum Shuttle Service) was supposed to pick us up at 6pm at EPCOT. We got to the pick up location at 5:56pm and the shuttle was not there. Waited till 6:15 to find out the bus left early. After calls to Radisson and the shuttle service dispatch the shuttle service lied and kept changing their story saying they were there till 6:05 and left. Was told by one Radisson employee and the shuttle service we would just have to wait till 8:45pm till the next one (we had already been there for 10 hours and was 100 degrees. We walked fast and ran some to make sure we were at the pick up point before 6pm. There was 12-15 other people waiting there including a man in a wheelchair with his family). We called dispatch and Radisson back a couple more times trying to get it sorted out. After an hour of this nonsense the Manager on Duty at Radisson asked me and my wife to get a cab and he would reimburse us the fee($22.75). He did so and also comped us one days resort fee. The kicker about the shuttle service is that 10 mins after the pickup time another shuttle from Platinum Shuttle came by and asked why we had not been picked up yet. He tried to charge the different groups of people waiting there $3 each person to take us. He talked to the dispatcher and was told to butt out of the situation and leave us there. The shuttle was empty and the company could care less about us standing out there in the 100 degree sun on top of trying to squeeze extra money out of us (in addition to what the hotel pays them). My wife now swears she will never take a shuttle service and we will need to just drive our car and pay parking.

This is a fine 3* Hotel. Real close to Disney World. Pros: Very comfy Beds & Pillows. Nice Courtyard that pool sits in. Nice free breakfast-eat inside,outside or in room. Concierge sell tix to all attractions. All staff happy to help and please. Cons: WiFi hit & miss, on/off again. Very run down kitchenette. Only 1 window opens, is in 2nd, back bedroom with no screen or guards. Child could fall out very easily. Gift/Duty Free shop did not allow room charging. Concierge are always trying to get you to do a time-share tour at a another unaffiliated Resort. Semi-supervised sports tournament kids were noisy at night. Spent 10 min's on the phone late at night trying to get someone to help, front desk kept putting me on hold. Had to call them 2x's to get to help. We were here 10/7-10/14/08.

Travelling alone w/ my 8 yr old son- We stayed (4) nights 6/8 - 6/12/06. They gave us an early at 1pm instead of 3pm. Yeah! Upstairs in Bldg 600 directly accross from the office & pool. The room was clean, it had a full kitchenette w/ coffee maker, & micro- dishes, utensils, paper products. (2) TV's so, the son can watch his cartoons- while I watch the weather channel. :-) The pool was nice, bit small -My son enjoyed it- It's only 5 ft deep. The plants & trees surrounding the hotel and pool were beautiful & colorful- Resort exterior is a nice villa style and in good condition. Hotel location is great for all the disney parks- It is on 192 right off I-4.. The construction going on at that 192 Ramp- made it difficult to get back at night from the Parks to 192 going (East) I believe - the direction you need to go to the hotel entrance street (Parkway Drive) I had to take the opposite direction exit on 192 and go down about a 1/2 mile make a u-turn. It only took a few minutes- It's still close to everything.. Market,resturants and gift shops all within a close walk/drive. I would reccommend having your own car- the shuttle they have comes at wierd times- (7:30am & 9:30am) The parks open at 9am and it was only a 15min drive to the parking lot for me.. I prefer driving- but it's $9/day parking. Overall- we were pleased with our stay- I felt very safe- Maid service was excellent- even washed my dishes each day! The rate was awesome even after all extra $fees. Try it out!!

The villa was clean with everything we needed for our holiday including dishwasher tablets, washing powder and dryer sheets. The resort pool was very nice with a quiet bar and polite and helpful staff. We were around a 5 minute car journey from Disney - and close enough to all the local shops and restaurants in Kissimee. An excellent price and we couldn't be happier - we would certainly go back.

Star Island Resort is a wonderful place. I would have preferred a better view. It was very clean with lots of space. We had the mini-suite. The grounds are beautiful. They do need to remove some of the vegetation out of the lake.
