Red Lion Lake Buena Vista South/East Kissimmee

Kissimmee, Orlando

Virgin rating

The hotel

A sparkling new addition to the Kissimmee holiday scene, 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.

Our stay was for three nights. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very basic and clean. The pool and pool area were very nice. This hotel is close to Disney (about a 20-minute drive), and it was a great price.

This is the 2nd time I have stayed at this hotel. Last time was about 5 to 6 years ago. Is it perfect no. First room was kind of dirty they were happy to move us. Happy to provide as many towels as you need etc. I do think this hotel is a little hidden gem. You seriously can't beat the price. It offers a great pool. Nice to have the store there… Read more
This is the 2nd time I have stayed at this hotel. Last time was about 5 to 6 years ago. Is it perfect no. First room was kind of dirty they were happy to move us. Happy to provide as many towels as you need etc. I do think this hotel is a little hidden gem. You seriously can't beat the price. It offers a great pool. Nice to have the store there just in case you need something. The drink prices at the Oasis bar in my opinion are wayyyy to much. $18 for a simple margarita once they put gratuity and tax on. Walk across the street to the gas station and get much cheaper drinks!!! The free shuttle to Disney is also a plus it just should be a little later because you miss the fireworks. Just make sure you there ON TIME. We were not even two mins late to the bus coming home at night and it left us stranded. They also need to provide larger towels for the pool area. They are barely big enough for kids. All in all we had a great stay and I do recommend to families on a budget! Read less
