"Worst Hotel"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed November 17, 2019 NEW
My husband and I booked this resort suite for our anniversary and we were very disappointed. First off we checked in and got our room 3 hours later, even though it was ready and we were not notified as they said they would. The room was clean and nice but the bed is not comfortable in our opinion. We had to pay for regular guest parking each night which honestly should be free like other hotels. Just a money grab in our opinion. Might as well ask for valet parking. Housekeeping does a mandatory inspection of your room each day, I don't know why though. They knock on your door persistently. This feels as if they don't trust us. They woke us up from our nap by calling us on our room phone to do this check after they knocked on our door several times already. Very disturbing. No free complimentary breakfast, cheaper hotels do this. Honestly, our Holiday Inn Express suite for our wedding and honeymoon was nicer than this, cheaper, and the room was bigger. Disney is really becoming a money hungry leech. Would give this hotel 0 stars if I could.

My friends and I came down from NJ to celebrate another friend’s bday at Magic Kingdom and we stayed at Boulder Ridge. Everything was wonderful!! The main lobby was beautiful and we loved Roaring Fork and all the places you can sit and eat, enjoy coffee or just people watch. The tracker is a nice touch so you can have a seat and wait for your meal. I enjoyed getting up early and exploring the property and appreciated all the nice touches like the railroad room in Boulder Ridge and the cool bison topiary. Suggestions for travelers: They will not bring your luggage to your room unless it has already been assigned. We thought they would bring it once the room number was chosen but we got to the room at 11:30 and it was not there. Also, you don’t need to bring anything. We bought shampoo, body wash, etc and it was supplied already. Lastly, when you go to the Roaring Fork, you have to order EVERYTHING at the counter and this includes coffee. We had such a wonderful time and I will definitely be back.

I stayed at Wilderness Lodge for 2 nights many years ago and loved it, so wanted to try Boulder Ridge Villas. We are 2 Adults and 2 kids aged 3.5 years old and the other 10 months old. We booked via a DVC rental company and rented points for a Studio Villa - standard view. We were in room 1516 and loved it. The place is such a quiet haven, makes you really relax after a day at the parks. We didn't use the main pool, only the Boulder Ridge pool and the splash pad at the main lodge. Loved both, the best thing about the Boulder Ridge pool are the cabana like structures that offer shade and loungers for FREE!! Was so great for this pale Aussie and her kids. Things we really loved about Boulder Ridge/Wilderness Lodge - Lobby CM's were fantastic, our Eldest DD got ill and needed medical attention they gave me brochures and within an hour a Doctor was in our room and prescribing medication. The cost wasn't astronomical and was all covered by our travel insurance - what service! - On site activities, we loved Bingo the most, so much fun and FREE! - The Boat to MK, what a treat that is. Getting to MK by boat is bliss and you don't have to fold your stroller in the larger boats - perfect for late nights when kids are asleep - Artist Point storybook dining - a highlight of our trip, the Queen is worth the price of this meal alone - The atmosphere, the place is reeking of tranquility, I absolutely adored this resort - Our Studio room was a very large size compared to our previous rooms we stay in at WDW (usually Value resorts) we will never go back again to Values after being in Studio Villas Thing we didn't like so much - Roaring Fork QS, the menu is limited and the same every day. We stayed for 6 nights so it got a little "old" quickly I've heard on some other places online that the room we were in 1516 because it overlooks the pathway that it can be noisy - we didn't hear a thing from it. The room was the quietest place I've ever stayed in, EVER! Our 3.5 year old loved the Murphy Bed and I loved the faucets in the bathroom and vanity area, the attention to detail here was astounding. The artwork in the bathroom was also especially sweet. Our 10 month old used the provided pack and play and it was in good clean condition and came with good clean sheets. The storage in the room was adequate, they had two large cupboards for bags etc and a good sized dresser for clothes. I can't wait to go back to Boulder Ridge in 2 years.

We stayed at Boulder Ridge in early September for a couple of nights - we normally do at least one weekend on property during EPCOT Food and Wine Festival. This year this was all that we could get during the Festival window - waited to long. Had not been to Boulder Ridge in a while - even though this was not our first choice, it did not disappoint. We had a little issue at check in but that was resolved professionally and quickly - got some express passes for our stay. Had a great time - checked in Friday evening after work - went straight to our room and then Geyser Point Bar and Grill (see additional review). We had a 1 bedroom and everything was clean, fresh, airy and relaxing. Bus ride over to EPCOT on Saturday and then back to the room around 1300 - time for a dip in the pool - great pool, nice refreshing water - waiter service from the Geyser Point Bar and Grill - even though the sign says no Food or Drink in the pool area. Just a very relaxing weekend and would put Boulder Ridge at the top of my list even though it is just a little off the beaten path. PS You cannot walk from there to anywhere - bus, car or taxi - but we enjoy taking the bus.
