Rosen Inn Lake Buena Vista

Lake Buena Vista, Orlando

The hotel

We think the Rosen Inn Lake Buena Vista offers excellent value as well as being so close to Disney. In the 23 acres of landscaped grounds is a lake which is home to a variety of Floridian bird life. You will find all the great family amenities in your room, just beware you may just get too comfortable! There are some great deals in the family restaurant here, and a free shuttle bus will take you to the four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. Disney springs is very close too — with a fantastic array of restaurants, bars and shops there.

After closing due to Covid, I was so happy to see that they are back. I have been coming here for years. In 2019, I stayed here 7 times. Just really an amazing value.

After closing due to Covid, I was so happy to see that they are back. I have been coming here for years. In 2019, I stayed here 7 times. Just really an amazing value. COVID: From the moment I arrived, I felt very safe. Security took my temp. and gave me a color wrist band to wear to show I had my temp check. All employees in the lobby had masks and were socially distant. I can see they are taking all measures possible to make sure their guest and employees are safe! CHECK IN: As stated above, felt totally safe. I asked to upgrade to a king bed and they were able to accommodate me. ROOM: I was in room 4409. The room was spotless and smelled great. The remote control, coffee maker, and cups were all covered in plastic to let you know it has been sterilized. The sheets were sparkling white. And the A/C was so cold, I had to wake up in the night to turn the temp up. Beds were super comfy and pillows were great. Even before Covid, I always travel with Lysol to make sure I spray everything down. But, this room was so spotless, I almost felt like I did not have to do anything, POOL: The pools are open. I actually for the first time in years coming, used the pool. It was very relaxing. I will say to management, new pool furniture would totally transform that area. BAR/Restaurant: Both of these were closed. MiniMart/Gift shop: This was available and has all you need to snack in your room. NO Parking fees NO Wife Fee NO Resort Fee 15min from Disney Springs Next door from shopping with restaurants They did rebrand from the Clarion Inn to Rosen Inn….and I can tell right away. On my last day when I called to check out via the phone, they picked up the call and addressed me by my name. Something that has never happened when it was a Clarion. If you are looking for a mint on your bed each night like they do at the Four Seasons, then I would suggest you don’t stay here. But if you are looking for large comfortable rooms close to the Disney parks and at a great value price……Rosen Inn LBV is your place. Read less

We are frequent this hotel formerly known as the Clarion Inn, a Rosen Inn Hotel, as it is very convenient to the areas we visit, and most of all we feel safe here. Sure it smelled, we seen roaches but you get what you pay for. It's very close to the Disney parks and most importantly, the urgent care. It's also affordable. However, there was that… Read more
We are frequent this hotel formerly known as the Clarion Inn, a Rosen Inn Hotel, as it is very convenient to the areas we visit, and most of all we feel safe here. Sure it smelled, we seen roaches but you get what you pay for. It's very close to the Disney parks and most importantly, the urgent care. It's also affordable. However, there was that one time in August 2016 when we arrived to check in and we were told that they had no reservation for us. Feeling panicked and did not want to ruin our weekend, we accepted their offer to send us to a hotel at the sketchy end of International Drive. I never forgot that day. But unfortunately, the cheap price always kept us coming back. Until this weekend. We became victims of their bait and switch scheme. Read less

We booked this hotel through booking.com only to find out when we arrived that the hotel is closed and we were actually booked at the Rosen Inn about 15 miles away on International Blvd. We booked this hotel based on location and reviews. After a long hot day at Disney’s Magic Kingdom, we arrived at the gate and told by the, not surprised to see us there, security guard that the hotel is closed and she gave us a card that lead us to the Rosen Inn. When we were checking into a hotel we knew nothing about, we let the front desk clerk know what happened and she didn’t seem surprised and wasn’t a bit apologetic. We feel this was a bait and switch.

Me and my fiancée absolutely loved it at this hotel. It was so clean and the room was pretty standard like most others in Florida, 2 double beds, a flat screen, a sink area, wardrobes and a bathroom. We had bed and breakfast, the breakfast is really nice! Perfect if you’ve got a long day at Disney ahead to load up on. This hotel is just a 5 minute… Read more
Me and my fiancée absolutely loved it at this hotel. It was so clean and the room was pretty standard like most others in Florida, 2 double beds, a flat screen, a sink area, wardrobes and a bathroom. We had bed and breakfast, the breakfast is really nice! Perfect if you’ve got a long day at Disney ahead to load up on. This hotel is just a 5 minute walk from a retail park with a whole host of restaurants and bars and stuff and then another couple of minutes to the main road which again has more of the same. It’s also only 5-10 minutes in a taxi to Disney Springs, which as I’m sure you know from there you can use the free transport at your leisure to get around Walt Disney world resort. The only negative about this hotel for me, if you are staying here to go to Disney, the transport provided by the hotel to Disney world isn’t great and is very restrictive. We didn’t actually use it that much after the first couple of days an just started getting taxis to and from Disney springs. Which lead us the next time to spend the extra money on staying in a Disney hotel. HOWEVER, I absolutely love this hotel and would definitely stay here again, hoping for an improvement in the transport situation :) much, much cheaper than a Disney hotel too, you can stay here for 2 weeks bed and breakfast for less than £2000 for 2 people, whereas in a Disney hotel you’re looking at double that with no breakfast! The hotel bar is great here too and offers lovely food! PiZzas, loaded fries etc. If you’re looking for somewhere close to Disney that isn’t actually in the resort it’s definitely worth a try, or if you’re not going to Disney and you just want a nice hotel with plenty to do around it, this is the one for you!
