Holiday Inn Resort Orlando - Lake Buena Vista

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The walls a little thin if your a light sleeper, you will hear your neighbors. Otherwise, decent hotel for the price. Within 10-15 from Sea World and Magic Kingdom. They offer free kids meal vouchers at Applebee's which is in the hotel. Pool area is fun! We got discounted tickets in the lobby entertainment area.

the workers were very nice and helpful. we would stay there again and recommend it to others.

clean and comfortable room. Just off the Walt Disney Resort property. Free shuttle service to all parks. Rooms a little dated and walls thin, but overall good experience at a reasonable price.

Every thing was good except the desk selling tickets for parks. Charged too much money when we could have gotten them at the park for a lot less.

Hot water was out and I could not take shower. This hotel is a good spot for family with children, not for business commuters.

Except for the blood around the toilet the room was great. Excellent value for the area. Shuttle ran late but that is beyond anyone's control and it got us there. Recommend buying Disney tickets in the lobby to save time and effort.

Stayed here for a conference at another hotel. Easy access to the other site at a fraction of the cost.

Booked room for 4 Adults but, got only 2 breakfast coupons..

Our family had to evacuate from Florida's east coast due to Hurricane Matthew and not only did Orbitz assist me in booking a hotel over the phone (when every place I checked was sold out), they found this wonderful resort for us at the very last minute. From the moment we arrived in pouring rain and crazy winds, the hotel staff was out front helping us unload the car and assisted us with our bags all the way to our room. The front desk staff was very sympathetic to our situation and gave us extra blankets and toiletries for our group of four. The room was very clean, roomy, and comfortable. Even with all of the storm's chaos, they opened the onsite Applebees with the assistance of a waitstaff composed of volunteers, which was awesome considering we had all been eating canned foods for a day and everything else in town was closed. I will most definitely stay here again in the future due to the amazing customer service. :)

Room was nice but humid even with A/C unit running

I reserve this room for $90 a night when I got there I was charge an additional $38 which is about $20 for parking who charges for parking when you rent a hotel room The shower Spicket was broken the water ran all night the toilet seat was ready to fall off when I got there

We enjoy our stay it could not be better We enjoy our stay it could not be betterWe enjoy our stay it could not be better

This is our third time staying here. It is a very clean resort. Close to everything, walking distance. The Applebee's restaurant on site was great. The pool area was well kept, nice music playing while you relax. I will say if you don't like smoking stay away from the poolside tiki bar.

Everything was great from the staff, amenities and service. Will definitely be back!

The rooms are big and clean. Staff is nice and helpful. And its great that it has a restaurant (Applebee's) attached to it, open late. The only thing was that the mattress was a little hard but everything else was great.

Upon arriving at the hotel, the greeting was very warm and friendly. The receptionist at check-in took time to go over everything with us. We were very impressed with the cleanliness and freshness of the rooms and the grounds. All in all it was a very wonderful experience. The pool was extremely nice and so were the rooms. The only negative was that 1 day our room was not made up in time for us to freshen up to go out for the evening but otherwise, it was done every day.

We had a very good stay. Friendly staff & the room was clean.

The hotel had no courtesy beverages,such as coffee in the A.M. We were directed to walk next door to the 7-11. The water is very hard. The shower and sink fixtures had scale build up. A shower in hard water is not my favorite experience. We assumed all Holiday Inn's have soft water. We were not aware the hotel was charging us a per day parking fee until checkout time. We may have gone with another package if we would have known the extra fee up front. The staff was professional and informative except for the front desk person who directed us to the 7-11 on our first morning. I got the feeling we were bothering him when he had to look up from the paper he was reading, with a scowl, to inform us the hotel had no coffee and then told us to go next door.

All things considered it was a very good place to stay. Just would like the people that sell visitsit to their condos or what not for 90 minutes would ease up and not be so agrees I've. We came for a vacation not to spend time listening to someone trying to sell something. Both persons that we encountered were very annoying.

I had business at both Disney and at The Pointe. Convenient to both locations, the room was large, clean and hotel services were excellent.
