Condo rentals in Orlando?

We are looking at two hotel-booking options for Orlando: booking two regular hotel rooms via Priceline or booking one two-bedroom condo with any one of the various companies that provide them.

The cost for either option is low enough that a few bucks either way won't be the driving factor: my question is whether the condo properties are clean and quiet or if they are on the skanky side. I've stayed in awesome condos on championship courses in Myrtle Beach and I've stayed in nasty condos on the bad side of Scottsdale. I'm wondering how the Orlando condos tend to fare...

FWIW, we are going in late January and are not terribly picky about location - just somewhere in the Orlando area, or perhaps even north of town a little bit. We are not visiting theme parks, and although we will play some golf, we don't have to be overlooking a course. We're looking for someplace nice with two *real* bedrooms.

Cost, in case anyone was wondering, seems to be around $100 per night for a two-bedroom condo, give or take a few bucks. $50 per room per night on Priceline will buy you at least a 3*, maybe a 4* hotel. But the idea of a condo sounds more appealing to us.

Booking a points-earning room in Orlando doesn't seem to make any sense. Other options are just TOO cheap!
