We drove down from NY,we checked in very late,this was a non hassle process. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because there is no continental breakfast. So we started out day at the pool,let me say there is tons of activities for the children pools side and through out hotel,staff is very friendly and there was gentlemen... More

We decided to give this place a shot as we needed a place to stay for one night before heading to Disney's Contemporary. The first thing we noticed is the property is difficult to get into and out of. Coming from I-4 it takes a U-turn or a little bit of cheating to get into the resort. The staff at... More

There seem to be a ton of Holiday Inns in the Disney area. This was very nice. Great pool, and they showed Frozen on a big screen outside while we were swimming. My kids loved it. Applebees is attached to the hotel and we got a good meal there. The only issue we had was getting in and out of... More

The Holiday Inn Resort Lake Buena Vista used to be our go to hotel for our disney trips. After two years, we made another trip to Orlando and naturally chose this hotel. I booked through AAA, but still felt the rate was a bit steep for a kid suite compared to other home away from home resorts in the area.... More

We got to the hotel about 3:30 PM and inquired as to when the next shuttle would be to the Disney parks. We were told the next one wouldn't be until 8 AM the following morning. If you want to go to the parks the last shuttle is at 1:15 PM and the first return shuttle isn't until 4:45 PM.... More

My husband and I booked this hotel in January for our MLK weekend getaway to Universal and Disney World. It was affordable, well kept, and it had an Applebees attached to it (which was a plus!) As soon as we checked in we were able to eat and do whatever we needed and then went to our room, which was... More

I'm a long time IHG rewards member. I was in Kissimmee a few weeks for about 5 days. I usually book through the IHG page, but I changed my reservation at the last minute for a day earlier than originally planned. My wife booked the reservation via hotwire rather than the IHG page because she doesn't have my IHG account... More

The room was nice and spacious. I got the two queen bedroom. The hotel was a bit confusing as far the layout and getting around... I got slightly lost trying to get to my room from the front desk and if you don't have your key you can't get into your building. The Applebees restaurant downstairs had bad service. The... More

My Fiancee and I stayed at this hotel last weekend on a quick weekend trip to Orlando to celebrate his 30th birthday. I booked this hotel through a package on Allegiant's website.
