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.

Overall the property is in a great location. The rooms are a bit outdated, and honestly could be cleaned better. I had an emergency and needed a package to be delivered there, and I was charged $5 by the hotel to pick up the package. I had never had to pay a fee for that.

Overall the property is in a great location. The rooms are a bit outdated, and honestly could be cleaned better. I had an emergency and needed a package to be delivered there, and I was charged $5 by the hotel to pick up the package. I had never had to pay a fee for that. My daughter LOVED the splash pad, but was turned off at around 8 PM. The sign said it was open until 10 PM. We called it in and they told us the engineers were new and they couldn't do anything about it. Overall, the experience was not bad, but it wasn't great either. We spent 4 nights here simply because we decided to extend our vacation and our other hotel was unavailable. Read less

I reserved 2 rooms. 1 for me and my children. The other for my brother and his family. We were told that we paid at checkout. I arrived before my brother who wasn't going to arrive in time to keep the reservation. They made me pay for both rooms right away. There is no housekeeping service. The wifi is only complimentary for 1 day. The breakfast… Read more

The wifi is only complimentary for 1 day. The breakfast is only available on the weekends. They told us disney world was a 5 minute walk and it is actually a 7 hour walk. Their Disney representative is never here. I would highly suggest a different hotel for your Disney trip Read less

I’m presently staying here at Rosen Inn LBV and very pleased with our stay. As one reviewer wrote they must pay for good reviews well no one has paid me but I will accept if offered. Upon arriving our room was clean with no roaches in sight. Yes, the garbage cans are overfilled because they’re not very big to begin with and the elevator on the far end of our unit is inoperable. So the place is not perfect but nothing negative enough to pay 2-3 times more per night for another hotel with their own issues. The location is very convenient to the interstate which our unit faces. The traffic has not interfered with my sleeping but walking what seems like 20 miles a day at WDW could be the reason I’m sleeping so soundly. The grounds are well maintained and kudos to each worker who takes pride in their work here because your efforts are very noticeable and appreciated. As far as the management here I’ve experienced no problem. The staff has been friendly and prompt when I’ve asked for extra towels and such. We were able to snag a great rate so shop around. I’ve written several reviews for TripAdvisor some positive and some not so positive because I understand people are looking for honest and accurate reviews when traveling. I know I do so I don’t waste my money. Thanks to Mr. Rosen (owner) for still offering a property where a working family is not nickel and dime to death with charges such as paying to just park as some properties around WDW does. They offer a free shuttle to Universal Studios and WDW parks, but you’re limited with their set schedule. I hope this review will ease any concerns you may have for this particular property. I can only speak for my self, and I would definitely recommend you consider staying here at Rosen Inn LBV. Read less

I booked the Rosen Inn Lake Buena Vista for a last minute trip to SeaWorld. After reading some of the reviews I decided to look at other places. I am so thankful I went ahead and booked two nights at the Inn! I’m not sure which rooms the guest who gave negative reviews stayed, but our room was wonderful! Everything was great from the the time we arrived! When we arrived the security guard gave us a wonderful welcome and told us the stress stops there. He said you’re hear to relax and enjoy! We arrived early and could not check in. The front desk gave us a key so we could go to the pool. At 4, I went to check in and there was a long line, but the lines moved very quickly! The lady at the desk was able to get our rooms right next to the other! When we went in the rooms they were very clean! The location of the Rosen Inn can’t be beat! You are right across from Disney, 3 miles from SeaWorld, and it’s near any restaurant you want! We got everything plus an AMAZING price! My family is already planning on going back and staying at this property! Read less
