Fully booked Fla. resort abruptly closes, kicks guests out after hotel sold


ORLANDO, Fla. -- Guests at a Florida resort were in for a vacation nightmare during spring break when the resort they were staying at abruptly closed without warning.

The resort guests were kicked out without a refund and all of its employees fired when the hotel was sold earlier this week, WESH reported.

"We don't really know what we're going to do," said ousted hotel guest Victoria Oquendo.

Oquendo and her family flew to the Sunshine State all the way from Rhode Island for what was supposed to be a two week relaxing vacation.

"You know, with COVID it's been tough. So we're trying to have a good time," she said.

The family booked their stay at Champions World Resort in Central Florida.

Victoria said the vacation was going great until Thursday.

"Havoc just broke loose," she said. "Everyone just started coming outside. Everyone's packing their bags and stuff."

Oquendo said, without warning, hotel employees started going door to door telling residents they had just hours to pack up and get off the property because the hotel was shutting down.

"She was like, 'you guys have to pack your stuff and leave.' She said, 'you guys have until 4 o'clock. The property has sold,'" Oquendo recalled.

The hotel's website posted a message confirming the hotel had been sold, then just hours later the whole website was shutdown.

Oquendo said a hotel employee told her not only were guests being kicked out, but all the employees had been fired too.

"The manager said he's been working for 18 years as management and he's never heard of such a thing happening," Oquendo said.

A local news station also spoke with one man who has just arrived at the resort when the chaos was unfolding. He said he had driven all the way from Indiana and he didn't even know that the hotel had been closed until he went to check in.

"They didn't give notice or anything," Oquendo said. "That's not right."

Oquendo added that the hotel was booked to capacity. Now, she and hundreds of other families have to find someplace else to stay during the peak of spring break travel.

"I've called bunches of hotels and they've said we're sorry we're booked," she said.

WESH reached out to Champions World Resort for comment but had not received a response.

This is so simple. I woulda went shopping to buy luggage from walmart. Take them good a*s , pillows, sheets and towels. Sold about 3 of the sets back home for about $100 to $200 each. Return the suitcases at walmart. File a claim with Chase and get all my money back. It's not like they gonna dispute it! Win win...

For the same reason people always go to Florida. They get drawn to the allure. Frankly there are a million places in this country to explore.

The north and midwest have all kinds of cases recently. And lower Michigan has the highest breakout of covid spreading in America lately.

It's clear why.

All the people flocking to Florida in droves for spring break and sh*t, then coming back and spreading it.

So it's crazy and stupid to go to Florida anytime soon.

Thats a thorough list. I agree.

Aside from all that - it's a breeding ground for covid, and way too much insane news, stories and sh*t happening there lately. ...Nothing should be worth going there considering that. So if it does somehow seem worth it, then I can only imagine the circumstances and how fu*ked up things are wherever somebody trying to vacation in Florida is.

Moving instead of vacationing in satan's a**hole is probably something to consider.

I've been all throughout Colorado several times. And I'm just saying it makes more sense to want to vacation in a place like Florida considering Colorado is a colder place where it snows and sh*t.
