definitely NOT disney. RUDE RUDE RUDE!

went to disney for a spur of the moment trip for my 45th birthday. the hotel staff were not helppful for anything. when called for room service, no answer the first time and then rude people when we had questions. in room internet did not work one night and the answer that [...] at the front desk gave us was, everybody els's works just fine. no one at the front desk when we left and needed to call a cab, nor bell service. this hotel is convenient to disney but if service is something you value, choose elsewhere.

Nice Hotel

Everything about this hotel was great, except the wireless internet service, which was so slow as to be almost useless during afternoons and evenings. Rooms were very comfortable, clean, and quiet; heating and cooling worked very well, beds were very comfortable. There is also a very convenient and well-stocked little store next to the lobby.

Not the best

This hotel would have been fine for a one night stay, but a week long visit reveals the many hidden expenses that reside here. The staff, however, where very friendly. The food was horrible at meal times and the shower collected water.

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.

Good Spot

First impression was nice, but the front desk clerk didn't clearly explain how to get to the room (thru the elevators), we had to ask twice and no map was provided. The interiors were great, except for a area of wetness and mold on our ceiling in the room. The ice machine on our floor was out of order. Being able to get Pizza Hut was a plus and the bar was nice. The pool was decent as well. Overall a good stay, but could have been better. We were staying for the location, a concert at House of Blues.

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.

"The good, the bad, and the really ugly"

Spent the 4th of July weekend with an old college friend for a girls weekend...room was very small, bathroom was very outdated with the sink in the shower/toilet area...I've never seen this type of footprint for hotel bathrooms and I've seen my share of average to high end hotels. Parking after a night out was horrific...no spots available leaving the valet parking as the only option. Hotel staff would not permit free parking in the valet section even though they could not accommodate all of their guests who preferred general parking over valet..for the price of the hotel per night, very poor. I've stayed in cheaper hotels with better room presentation and plentiful parking in the same general location of Disneyworld. One positive is that the room had a balcony...being on the 9th floor was a treat with fireworks lighting up the sky no matter which direction we looked.
