Awesome experience!

This is by far one of my favorite hotels especially since it's on Disney property but not the cost... See full review

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.

bad

It was the worst possible deal I ever got. Booked king king size was offered double, then "upgraded" to queen size in the basement(?). I went and stayed in Marriott. Very dissatisfied, worst possible experience.

Old School

Most rooms have exterior entry. Hotel is old but kept up pretty well. Walking distance to Downtown Disney is a plus.

No better bang for the buck....

I wasn't expecting much when I booked the hotel for our pre X-mas family trip to Disney. I was pleasantly surprised during our stay. The decor is slightly dated, but the amenities were great. We stayed in one of the Disney View rooms in the tower. Hotel room was very clean (and I can be pretty picky#. Bathroom's were spotless and cleaned daily. No mold on the tiles, fresh #looking) paint, etc. The staff was very friendly. We spent a little time at the pool. The food was great, reasonable priced, and my little ones enjoyed the playset in the pool. Only negative comment would be the length of a few of the bus routes. Getting to the parks was fairly quick, but we were near the end on a few of the routes returning from the the parks. Disney run shuttles, so no fault of the hotel. Can't complain that much for free shuttle service to the parks! The busses run every 30 minutes to/from the parks. I gave it 5 stars due to the fact that I paid about 1/2 of what I would have paid for some of the other Disney "budget-moderate" priced hotels. For the amount of time we spent at the hotel outside of the parks, it was a bargain. I would definitely stay again.

Might be good for families, not for childless couples.

My husband and I are in our early 30s with no kids and stayed here for a couple of days while in the area visiting family. We chose this hotel because it looked nice in photos and had a shuttle to Animal Kingdom (which we didn't end up taking). The hotel was clean, safe, and close to Disney but it left something to be desired as far as 4 star resorts go. With the exception of the bed (which had nice linens and was very comfortable), our room did not feel or look much different from the budget hotel that we had stayed in a few days earlier. I was disappointed to find that we were booked in an exterior room, as I had only seen pictures of the high-rise tower during booking and assumed that all rooms were interior. I was also disappointed by the fact that there was no guide channel on the tv and movies were not offered for purchase, as it was raining during our first night so we opted to stay in after dinner. The front desk staff was extremely polite, kind, and accommodating, however when I inquired about a concierge, I was directed to a lady who gave me 2 coupons to Downtown Disney and then tried to sell me a timeshare. I also found the housekeeping staff to be less than helpful. They left us with no washcloths and less than half of our allotted amount of clean towels after servicing our room one afternoon. They were still working on our floor when we returned, so I approached them and politely asked them about it and was told that they had run out but just got more. I returned to my room and waited but they did not come by again. Several hours later I put in a request per the hotel's automated guest services system, which also proved unsuccessful. Finally I called guest services the old fashioned way and my request was fulfilled. The hotel lounge was a dead scene but we had fun hanging out by the poolside bar watching football and having a few drinks. We also made the short walk to Downtown Disney one night for dinner. The staff correctly advised us that the walk is much faster than taking the hotel's shuttle. There are several reasonably priced non-Disney restaurants close by as well, but the traffic around the hotel is relentless! It took at least 30mins to go less than a half a mile in any direction. If the weather had been better, we would've walked there as well. Overall we had an okay stay, but we will try a different hotel if we are ever in the Orlando area again.

Great hotel for the price you pay

The hotel lobby looks very nice, but our room which located on the 5h floor needs some renovation since it looks old and the heat was not working. The outdoor pools are nice. There was a heated jacuzzi, heated pool, and also another regular pool.

Bonefish Grill (for seafood lovers) and Texas De Brazil (All you can eat steak, chicken, pork, and salad bar) are great restaurants to dine in. Great service and quality food.
