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.

Ad says, "float in lazy river all day", LAZY RIVER OPEN 4-7 ONLY. NO POOL BAR OPEN Either. These were the 2 attractions we paid to come here for. Not satisfied. Could have gone anywhere for just a pool. Lastly, NO complimentary breakfast only coffee served fro. 6-11. No coffee pots in rooms either. Dema in restaurant was very outgoing and friendly along with gentleman in shop. Read less

I was apprehensive when I noticed that this hotel did not have as many reviews as other hotels, but I have since come to the conclusion that people are too thrilled with the property to leave a review.

I was apprehensive when I noticed that this hotel did not have as many reviews as other hotels, but I have since come to the conclusion that people are too thrilled with the property to leave a review. The room was clean and very comfortable! The pool area was tidy and the water was warm. There are signs which say there is no lifeguard on duty, but I noticed 3 or 4 lifeguards. I assume the signs were from before they got some lifeguards. Either way, that was great to see. The lazy river was relaxing and the spa/hot tub was just want the dr ordered!! The staff was very nice and accommodating. Since the hotel is pet friendly, and my family recently lost a pet, I asked if we could avoid being near pets. Well, I did not see ANY animals and did not feel ANY resentment for making my request. It was service with a smile. Prior to our stay, I did read the reviews from others and all of the negative reviews appeared to be from folks who were their OWN problem. Every step of the way, this hotel made us feel welcome, comfortable, and like royalty. I would DEFINITELY stay here again!! Read less

I had high hopes but it did not meet my expectations. I made the reservation and paid online AND still had to wait in line behind twenty something people standing for 45 minutes. We had hoped to spend a lot of time at the lazy river but it was too crowded for that small space. I will say everyone was kind AND everything was very clean.

I just returned yesterday after staying a week at the Red Lion Lake Buena Vista and it was everything I would expect. Check-in was fast! The hotel was very nice, clean, room was very clean, beds were very comfortable, and in a great location. The restaurant was ok. The staff was absolutely wonderful. I booked this hotel through a third party “Orlando Vacations” through my job and had absolutely no problems. Everything was already paid before when I arrived and all that was charged was a $40 a night incidental fee which I got back the day of check. I had absolutely no issues and will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone, I will be staying at this particular hotel from hear on out......I loved it! Read less
