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.

The hotel was clean, the staff was kind, the place is conveniently located near restaurants and shopping centers. My family were so looking forward to enjoy the pool and lazy river, which we found out to be only open after 4pm, and restricted to little kids, the 2 “not to inviting lifeguards” were only paying attention to the lazy river with 3 adults and didn’t care about the pool in which a couple of kids were playing. The pool’s water was cold and the wind just made it worse. To complete the disappointment, a family basically took control over the jacuzzi during the weekend and was not possible to get a spot in there, so forget about the after park relaxing pool experience! Beware of the park tickets you buy at their desk, they were very nice and informative people, but we needed to pay extra money at the park because the tickets have some type of restrictions and the clerk was not able to explain why, neither offered a reimbursement for the difference.

Close to shopping and restaurants. It was cold and rainy during our stay so we did not get to check out the pool or lazy river. The fitness center was small. The hallways had a strong smell to them like a mixture of bleach and perfume. The room was average with a comfortable bed.

This hotel was really good overall and we got far much more than we bargained for from a 3 star hotel The only complaint I have is that I had breakfast at the restaurant on site on 25th September morning. I ordered my food and asked the lady to tell the chef not to put onion in my food due to a skin condition which will flare up immediately if I eat onions. The breakfast came and it had lots of onions in the potatoes and omelette. I tried to hand pick them out but must have left some onions in because when I ate the omelette my skin started to itch. I stopped eating it I spoke to the waitress who had served me and she reassured me that the chef had been told not to put onions. The chef came out to see me and apologised. I was then given a discount for the mistake but my skin took a week to recover Overall I would book again in this hotel. Kind staff and great location Read less

We stayed here for a trip to universal and Disney. We love the location of staying on west Irlo since it is so close to many restaurants and shops. It’s an aprox 25 min to universal. It’s a perfect location. The hotel stay overall was very good. The location was great, the rooms were very clean along with the grounds. My son loved the pool and that it had the lazy river and slide. The lazy river did have odd hours during the week but we didn’t mind when it wasn’t open we just went in the regular pool. The weekend though it was open mostly all day. The only downside was the tv/cable and internet. We would be watching something on tv winding down our night and the Chanel would suddenly say no connection then maybe five minutes later it would be back. It wasn’t the worst since we really were only watching tv at the end of the night but kind of an inconvenience. My husband had no problems with the internet and WiFi connections but for some reason on my phone and my sons tablet is was slow and kept disconnecting, again just an inconvenience not the end of the world. Overall we will definitely stay here again and I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay in the area! Read less

The lifeguards were friendly.there are bathrooms near the pool too and pool towels. Our room was large, comfortable and perfect. The beds and pillows heavenly. Checkin/out easy and staff were very friendly. Love that bikes are available & next time we stay we will take advantage of. We can’t wait to come back. The location was near old town , close to many restaurants and not far from WDW. Highly recommended Read less
