Awesome experience

I loved it and will tell everyone about it. Perfect location, easy access to everything you can think of or possibly need. Also, the view is incredible of the lake and the pool was very clean and big for my kids to enjoy.

Great Stay, Great View, & Great Location!

We had a 1 bedroom on the 15th floor in tower 1, with a view of the lake. The Views are awesome. The room was very clean and well kept. Everything was in good working order. The only complaint we have was the Horrible Water Pressure in the showers. Very nice pool also! Overall a very good stay, in a great location near all the parks. We will definitely consider staying here again.

Nice Hotel but needs that special attention

We stayed at this hotel when it was first built and it was wonderful. But through the years they are letting things go in which they shouldn't. There used to be everything you needed in the kitchen, we had to get a cookie sheet...they brought it up very quickly, then we had an issue with the wireless internet, but they brought up another router. The twin beds are terrible, they are so uncomfortable, you would think they would be a little better with the price of the hotel stay.

Overall good choice for a family

The only weakness in an otherwise positive experience were the beds. Mattresses were low quality and noisy.

Needs Cleaning

The carpet was disgusting and therefore gave a dirty appearance. The view of the rear lake was good and the value was there. Three Star Tops!!!

4th of July is extra special here

Our stay was excellent at Blue Heron Beach Resort. The view of Disney area and Orlando was great. What was extra special was the view of all of the fireworks on July 4th. We sat on the Balcony and watched fireworks from Disney, Universal, Sea World and probably 50 other places all around the Hotel. It was extra special.

Ask to stay on the upper levels and ask to be on the Disney side of the Building. You won't regret it.

Magical!

I am very picky where I stay, and I have to say, the Blue Heron Resort went above and beyond in meeting my high expectations. The beds were comfortable, the view overlooking the lake was incredible, and the location to theme parks can't be beat. You get so much for your money, a full kitchen, transportation to the parks, beautiful pool and spa area plus game room for the kids. I highly recommend this resort. You won't be disappointed! Can't wait to go back!!

Great family getaway, economical and close to disney

We arrived at the hotel at 10am, well before the 4pm check-in time. I figured we would leave our bags with the front desk and go find something to do until check-in time. The girl at the front desk was great, we were able to check in immediately. The room was extremely clean, plenty of room for our family of four. Hotel was so close to theme parks, yet quiet and peaceful. Our 6 and 7 year old children loved the pool area. Beautiful view of lake. Our return flight was delayed four hours and the staff at the front desk allowed us to stay in the room past check out time and we were able to print out our boarding passes in the lobby. Also the kitchen with full size stove and refrigerator as well as the washer and dryer in the unit were so convenient and helps to cut down on some of the expenses. Plenty of parking and only a five minute drive to Disney. I have no complaints and will definitely be returning again in the near future!!!

There are at least three grocery stores in the immediate area. Utilizing the full kitchen and washer/dryer enables a budget-minded family to cut down on some expenses.
