Best Western Lake Buena Vista

Stayed here for 4 nights starting on 1/7/11. We were there for the marathon weekend. The hotel is average in all aspects, just be prepared to pay an additional $8 a night (resort fee). We booked here because the website stated that they had event transportation including the marathon. It was true, they did provide transportation for $13 each way or $20 dollars round trip per person. We just ended up driving our rental car to the marathon, the parking was free. While the location is nice, next time we will stay somewhere that does not include the Resort fee and use our rental car. Disney does provide bus transportation that leaves the hotel every half an hour to all the disney parks.

Good for the money

Stay was nice. Good location and shuttle service but they did not clean room after first day and we feel like the parking attendant took advantage. Ask for a cab to go to mall. He told us it was very far and would be 70 round trip for the 3 of us. It was about 10 minutes away. Think it be cheaper if cab had meter. The bar and grill has excellent food. All in all we had a good time

Average hotel with large rooms

This hotel is obviously old, the furniture is very dated but adequate. The bad, hallways were not very clean and neither were the floors in the rooms. The sliding glass door did not seal. The heater came on in the middle of the night and was loud, we could not adjust it to turn off and it got quite hot in the room (it was a cold night in Orlando). The good, the bathrooms were clean and renovated with nice, soft towels and good quality toiletries. The bed (we had a room with a King) was very comfortable, I was impressed! The employees we interacted with were very nice. This is an older hotel that could use a bit of TLC, but if you just need a place to lay your head and get a good price, you cannot beat the location just three blocks from Downtown Disney. We did not visit the restaurant so I cannot comment on that, there are lots of places to eat close by too. We have stayed at other hotels within walking distance of this one and would say this one was a step below but was also less expensive. If you are thinking of staying here I would check on your options for transportation to the parks, we did not visit the parks and had a rental car to get around.

Good Hotel

The hotel was nice but it was ordinary. The decor was older. The staff was very nice. The air condition would not shut off. We froze to death every single night.

It works for the one night I was there.

The room was average and it had a nice location for going to the House of Blues for a show. Don't recommend eating at the in house Pizza Hut they have. Everything else was just average.

Great Location; Average Hotel

This hotel was nicely located near all the Disney Parks. The rooms were nice but the bathrooms need updating. One of the beds was somewhat caved in the middle. We ate breakfast downstairs at the buffet which was not worth the $11.99 price that was charged.
