We just got back from our first stay at OKW and other than the size of the rooms and the size of the balcony I was really disappointed. I have never said this about a WDW resort before. We had a 2BR and the room was HUGE and I was impressed by the huge balcony we had with a full size table and 4 chairs instead of the standard 2 chairs and small side table.
I felt the Hospitality House area really needed some work. The foodcourt, if you can call it a food court was dirty and small and offered nothing. The bar area was like a little dirty closet and there was nothing in the store.
I understand that I am a resort snob and I do expect a lot but I thought this was terrible. I also realize that I am used to and like the more modern accommodations so it might be me. I don’t know. My parent’s were with us and they liked it but they have never stayed on property before. DH at first liked it but when I explained why I didn’t he agreed with me.
I also felt that the bathroom in the master bath needed some work and updating. I know this is petty but the cover on the ironing board seemed old and smelly and gross. I didn’t even want to iron my clothes on it.
I did like how the resort was so laid back and quiet and beautiful. It did have it’s good points but I couldn’t get over the Hospitality House area.
Am I the only one that feels this way? I have read so many great reports about OKW.
