The Wyndham Hotel Corporation was started in 1981, and today the company has grown into a recognized name that provides upscale service in popular destinations throughout the world. The Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Resort is ideal both for families enjoying a trip to Disney World or guests in the area for business. The sizable lobby connects many spaces, including an activity center, gift shop, game room and cocktail bar. Children will love the breakfast buffet with Disney characters-offered three days a week-and three on-site restaurants serve up international cuisine after a long day exploring Orlando's biggest attractions. The kids will also enjoy the hotel's playground, while older children and adults have access to tennis courts, a basketball court and a volleyball court.

Good Hotel, Food way overpriced

Mostly I went to the Disney Theme parks. The shuttle service was excellent. I never got into the pools due to inclement weather every afternoon, but I did look it over and there was a lot to like there. The one complaint I have would be the same everywhere in Disney. The food was way too expensive for what you got. But overall, the room was clean and well maintained. They did lose wireless internet access due to the inclement weather I mentioned previously.

It was okay..

We didn't spend much time at the hotel, but when we did it wasn't bad like I had read on the reviews. However there is bedbites. You can even see them, which is never a good deal. One of the beds in my room had a broken piece underneath which caused the bed to be uneven. Other than that the location, service, and apparence of the hotel is not bad. I would recommend it, if you plan to be out all day and just use the hotel as your resting point.

Maintenance Upkeep

We had stayed at this hotel 2 years ago. We will say that the cosmetic changes they have made since them are much nicer than before. We were not satisfied however that we had to call Maintence to fix the toilet because it would not flush, nor did the television work.The television waa also a problem for our friend who were staying in the adjoing room. Also, the new door locking devices makes it very difficult to open the entry door, especially for children.

Downtown Disney is extremely close which provides for shopping, nightlife entertainment as well as numerous restaurants for all budgets. There is also a convenience store within a very drive from the hotel.

Definitely not 4 star, but a great value

A great location with nice amenities, although only one pool was heated and the pool area was totally out of towels. The rooms were adequate, but nothing special. The rooms were clean, but coffee and plastic cups were not replaced more than one time. The area for the children to play was terrific! The snack shop and gift shop were overpriced, as expected and the character breakfast offered overpriced, ordinary food with lackluster service. We would stay there again, but purchase groceries for our room and try one of the "Disney view" rooms.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Go to Walmart (not one of the close-by, horribly overpriced grocery stores) and keep cereal, milk, fruit, juice, and yogurt in your room to save money on breakfasts and snacks. Also, if you like a GOOD cup of coffee, buy some filters and coffee of your choice.

OK

I stayed at the hotel while working at a trade show so all I needed was a clean, relatively quiet room, which I got. However, wireless internet was not accessible from my room (I logged on in the lobby) and, since my room faced a car park, there was quite a lot of noise.

Description of view, not as advertised.

My husband and I took our son to Sea World for his 5th birthday. I booked this hotel because the photo's show a nice pool play area for kids, plus they say the Tower rooms have a view of the lights of Disney and Epcot at night. I guess I should have asked about the view. Our Tower room (that I chose specifically because of the description of the view) on the 7th floor had a view of a wall! I was very, very dissapointed in that. The pool area was great, but the water was freezing, but what can you expect in March? The room itself was nice and clean, small, but nice. It had a small bathroom, and the water was nice in the shower. The cold water in the sink didn't work well and it was scolding hot most of the time. We weren't in the room for very long, but all in all it was a nice hotel. We are planning on coming back in the Summer time when we can make better use of the pool area, and hopefully we can get a Tower room with an actual view of something other than a wall.

Loved the location

We spent 5 days visiting the Walt Disney World parks. Having the shuttle service to and from the parks made my stay simple, no driving required. The restaurant was a bit disappointing. I found that their dinner menu was really limiting.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Downtown Disney is just a block walk away from the front door and has a number of shops and restaurants for the whole family to enjoy. Experience DD in the evening for the best effect.
