Bland Hotel

Nothing special at Buena Vista Suites. No free Wi-Fi, no business center, not close to any anything within walking distance, tiny pool. Free hot breakfast is just ok. Rooms are dark, brown rug, dark green upholstered couch & chair, cherry oak furniture. Lots of young families, high school groups = loud kids who stay up late and excited kids who wake early. Don't plan on sleeping on pullout couch if you're over 75 lbs. Bathroom below par. 2 Stars for us.

Good for SeaWorld/Aquatica/Discovery Cove using the back road, S. Intl Dr, instead of I-4.

Great location BUT disappointing

Room was dirty, bathroom had black gunk on tub and sink, not enough towels, handles missing from drawers, no desk chair or writing materials, light bulbs out, no extra pillows for pull out bed. The hotel was a short drive to Disney and the employees we encounter where friendly and helpful. Free Breakfast was a free-for-all. Not enough seating, very small cups, crowded, rushed and very unpleasant way to start your day.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Plenty of dining and shopping nearby. It was very easy to get to know the area and get in and out of traffic. I recommend a rent car and spending an hour or so getting to know the area around your because there is great places to go not far away. I also recommend staying at a rental condo or home and passing on the free breakfast and shuttle. You and your family will be much happier!!! AND getting around in this area is a breeze!!!

Good Hotel for the Price

we read some reviews about this hotel when we first booked our trip and saw a couple negatives about the food and cleanliness. i must be honest, i had no issue with either. the continental breakfast was good and the hotel room was average. the hotel was clean. there are a few nicks and bruises on the hall doors but nothing that effected our comfort.

Tight spaces with friendly faces.

While checking in, we were shocked to find our prepaid reservation was not even in their system. After a short wait, they finally got things worked out and got us a room. The rooms are smaller than expected. The furniture takes up most of the space, so moving around with five of us was a challenge. The use of the couch bed was not even an option... there just wasn't enough room. Using the remote to the TV was difficult due to the size of the furniture. We had to hold the remote above our heads to change the channel. We were disappointed that find they did not have the Disney Channel. The pool was small, the game room was small and the lobby was small as well. We never did see a bartender in the tiny Bamboo lounge. This was definitely not what we expected. What saved this place was the breakfast. The cook who made our eggs to order was so friendly and full of smiles. The coffee was horrible, but there was a lot of hot food to choose from.

It was ok

The hotel is in a great location, close to retaurants, shopping and the parks. They were very friendly and for what we paid per night having free breakfast and free internet was a great deal! The only thing I didn't like was that the carpet in the room was a little stained and the bathroom was a little worn, especially around the tub area. The bathroom walls were not that clean either. The bedding was comfortable and clean. If traveling with babies bring your own crib, the one they provide was filthy!!

Kind of rough

Spent one night there - it is convenient to Disney but nothing special. Room was kind of beat up - nasty stains on furniture, banged up walls & trim. Pool was filthy with leaves. Not recommended.

Fair deal

The hotel overall was ok. The breakfast buffet was also ok, except that they need to change their fruit selection more often. Most of the staff were friendly except for the Asst Manager Trainee who was always curt--while checking in people and for inquiries--don't think she deserves the position. Location was ok relative to the disney parks with shuttles. Nothing much else nearby you can walk to though so you need a car or depend on taxis. Regarding their pool, looks like it needs some cleaning, after swimming on our last day we all returned home with ringworms.

Good Location, atrocious food

We stayed here on short notice for a one day trip to the Magic Kingdom. It is very close to Disney. Rooms were spacious and nice. However, the dinner in the "family" dining room, The Tropical, was atrocious. Save your money and go to one of the 100's of decent chains nearby (eg Carrabas)
