terrific deal

I was only there for a few days. The parking valet was very helpful with directions. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I really appreciated the late night lounge after a long day at the parks. I wished they had refrigerators and microwaves in the standard rooms. I didn't think it was right that you had to pay extra for them especially since we had to pay the resort fees for amenities that other hotels give you for free.

Hidden Costs

We spent 2 days at Disney World and 1 at Universal Islands of Adventure. The hotel provided free shuttles to DW but none for any other attractions. If you plan to stay here and go to other attractions be sure you have your own transportation or plan on spending a bundle for valet, shuttles, and/or taxi service. A 1-way ride to Universal from the hotel cost us $30 for 2 people. Paid in advance, but hotel still charged $7.99/night fee plus tax. Within walking distance to Downtown Disney. Nice hotel with a good restaurant.

nice hotel

Pretty good location 2 minutes from downtown Disney. Staff was friendly and the hotel was very clean. I did have problems at check in but it was this booking company's fault. Double check with the hotel and make sure they have your reservation, even if you have email confirmation. I was upgraded to a nicer room after the issue. Very nice of the hotel manager.

a very convenient stay for disney parks

The location is very convenient for all disney world parks and downtown disney, and it is within the downtown disney resort circle with shuttle bus to parks, the longest wait time for us back to hotel from park is 45 minutes. We are not necessary to rent a car at all for disney world parks and downtown disney. The hotel looks nice although we did not spend time in the hotel. The breakfast is not worth at all, very costy and nothing to eat, with two adults two young kids, it cost us over $35 for breakfast, they automatically deduct 15% tips and tax, and even asked for extra tips, however there were Macdalad around the corner with 3-5 minutes walk distance, and there were also a few chinese and nice other type of restaurants around the plaza. So you have choices for breakfast. you can also find nice dinner places in Disney parks, but a little bit expensive. the room is just fine, it have a wifi, but tried a few times, not working. it do not have refri. do not have microwave, and do not have a cup, although it had a coffe maker, but do not have a pot so you have to use those plastic cup as being told. it is not convenient for family with young kids, and also probably late arriving or leaving etc. other than these inconvenience, it is good though. One more thing, I asked for a morning wakeup for 4:30AM, and nobody was calling me at all, so do not count on them if something is critical, using your own alarm.

Best Western Lake Buena Vista

The staff were very courteous. The resort and rooms were well kept. I was sorry I wasn't able to stay longer to enjoy the amenities. I drove right by the place the first time because the sign was tricky and the resort doesn't look like your typical Best Western. I'll definately stay here again when I need to return to Orlando.
