Red Lion Lake Buena Vista South/East Kissimmee

Kissimmee, Orlando

The hotel

A sparkling new addition to the Kissimmee holiday scene, this Sunshine State hotel’s set to open in 2018 with everything you need for a theme park holiday (plus some rather fun perks thrown in on top). Located just three miles from the gates of Walt Disney World®, this brand new hotel features beautifully appointed rooms. Enjoy complimentary coffee from the café before you set off for the theme parks. When you return, you can soothe those ride-ravaged muscles with a soak in the heated outdoor pool and a float in its ultra-relaxing lazy river, or a stretch in the fitness room’s yoga zone, before tucking into homemade tortillas and fiery guacamole at its Mexican restaurant.

We gave this a 2. Giving credit for: Store stocked/clean. Room fairly comfortable. Pool/Lazy River itself well kept (I give credit to the hired pool cleaners).

We gave this a 2. Giving credit for: Store stocked/clean. Room fairly comfortable. Pool/Lazy River itself well kept (I give credit to the hired pool cleaners). They lost points for: having to go off property for a good alcoholic drink, and being stuck in a broken elevator. Emergency call button didn't work, had to sound alarm twice only to be asked by staff for 15 minutes "hello... are you still in there?". Asked front desk later if they knew what the issue was & recvd no apology for their mechanical issues. Upon check out asked for some sort of compensation and recvd $34 dollars credit. Asked to see the GM who refused to come from behind the desk and talk to us, and refused to take my phone calls. Talking to you, Chad. It became less about compensation and more about being treated like we did something wrong. We were told we were the only ones out of a sold out hotel that were trapped in the elevator and we should feel good about that. And btw, we overheard staff in the lobby talk about the mechanics that were there earlier in the week to fix the elevator and didn't fix it right. Just poor customer service. Read less

The front desk guy (Elderado I believe was his name) had an attitude. I watched him check-in the person in front of me and roll his eyes and become short with her. He seemed irritated to do his job. Similar check-in experience for me. It actually made me feel like I was going to hate our stay because of his unprofessionalism. Our room had tons… Read more
