The hotel

Offering a great location, this hotel is within walking distance of the iDrive 360 complex and is an excellent choice for couples, families or a group of friends. Of course, the legendary theme parks are the number one reason you're likely to visit Orlando and lucky for you they're only a short drive away and the hotel offers complimentary scheduled shuttle service to Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, Universal Orlando Resort™ and SeaWorld® Orlando should you wish to leave your car in the hotel's free car park. In the evenings, or if you fancy a day off from the parks, there's an outdoor heated swimming pool and hot tub to relax in or, if you still have some energy left, take advantage of the onsite gym to keep in shape. The free Continental breakfast will get you off to a good start so you're ready for your action-packed day of adventure. The Executive Rooms are well-equipped and perfect for couples but if you fancy more space, the 1- or 2-bedroom suites offer the convenience of self catering with fully-equipped kitchenettes, dining area and a separate living room with sleeper sofa. Being close to International Drive, you'll find plenty of shopping, entertainment, restaurants and bars within walking distance.

Overall, the hotel was fine. There seem to be many families that stay here during vacations to Orlando's parks, and the hotel does not seem to have the staff to assist with the many requests from guests.

Overall, the hotel was fine. There seem to be many families that stay here during vacations to Orlando's parks, and the hotel does not seem to have the staff to assist with the many requests from guests. The maximum number of front desk staff at any one time is two, but typically only one person was there. There was always a line three to four people deep for questions, but the staff seemed to be doing the best they could. Additionally, the hallways of the hotel were pretty old--stained carpets, faded and scuffed paint, etc. However, it did look like they were setting up to repaint the first floor, so maybe they are improving it. Our room was clean, if a bit dated. The breakfast wasn't great, and it was a bit inconvenient that we needed to bring a punch card to breakfast. Not terrible, just kind of strange. Overall, the hotel was fine, and what we expected for the money. I just wouldn't expect anything amazing. Read less

We stayed for two nights as a family of five and loved the size of the suites. Beds were supercomfortable which was a pleasant surprise! Probably the most comfortable we had during our 3 week trip that involved multiple hotel stays. We liked the location, as it was set back from i-drive it was quiet, but a short walk that was well lit at night so we felt safe when returning late after dinner. The hotel seemed pretty full when we went however we never had any issues finding parking at any time of the day. As mentioned in other reviews, the overall look and feel of the property is quite worn out but our room was clean and given the value for money and that you are unlikely to spend much time in the room when in Orlando, this would not put me off rebooking the hotel for another stay. Check in and out were quick and staff were very friendly. Read less

Thank you Gloria-cleaning lady! Greatly appreciated! Although I didn’t appreciate that this place was not a non-smoking facility! Room stunk like cigarettes! Not a big place at all! I look for more amenities....

Recently had two week stay in this hotel which is central and supplied shuttle service to parks which is great. The hotel needs updating and carpets need cleaning. The staff were great really helpful, I reported the bathroom taps were very loose and difficult to get shower working, I reported this 4 times before it was looked at and made temporary fix which was okay. I reported the sink plug not emptying and that got done the same day. Breakfast was okay similar things most days the lady who served breakfast was lovely and also reception staff. The bar lady in the bar was great very chatty and looked after everyone. Reception had some water and other items for sale but there was no price sohad to ask each time which is very frustrating Read less

We had never stayed in Orlando and were referred to Lake Buena Vista Resort and Spa by some friends. I’m so glad we chose to stay here. The service, amenities and location exceeded all of our expectations. We had a group of high school students for a class trip and the staff took excellent care of us! Students really enjoyed the pool area! The fitness room is also very nice. Having the Pizza Hut Express and convenience store on site saved us some trips for necessities we forgot at home. Shopping next door to the outlets was another unexpected bonus. The spa on the 6th floor is a must do to relax after a long day of exploring Orlando or visiting parks. They have a shuttle that helps you get to the nearby parks. They have thought of everything to make your stay the best it could possibly be. If you have any questions or concerns they are right there to assist anyway they can. We will definitely be repeat customers! Read less
