On approach to the hotel portico we were met by friendly, polite valets who guided us to our choice of valet parking for $17/day/per car or self-parking for $12/day/per car. The lobby is welcoming, clean and nicely appointed. Jazz (very cool name) greeted me at front desk with a genuine, friendly smile, upbeat attitude and attentive demeanor. Each of the... More

The toilet ran constantly, only one chair in the room, the elevator nearest us stopped running around 8PM two nights in a row, the lawn service started making loud noises at 8AM, there was a $20 a day service charge per day for "resort services" including business center, exercise room, and use of the pool (none of which we used),...

We booked this off of priceline when our flight was cancelled. I was a great deal on the surface, but as people complain about on here there is a $35 per night additional charge if you stay there and bring a car ($20 without car). However, that shouldn't equal a lower rating of the actual accommodations which are quite nice.... More

This hotel is okay, not great. Rooms are functional, the pool area is very nice, the restaurants do not have many healthy choices and those that they do have, like salads, are very small portions and over-priced. The shuttle to WDW is good value but beware of extra fees for parking and a "resort fee"/taxes currently around $22/room/day. But there... More

We booked the Sheraton since its a 4 star property but was priced way below the median range. We enjoyed the pool area a lot and the lobby is also rather new. We were accomodated with a suite that even had a bunkbed for the kids. The rooms seem to be old but clean and the entry to our room... More

This hotel would be great for couples. Unless you book a suite, I would not recommend the standard room for more than 2 people. There is only enough room for one person to be in the walkway of the room at a time. Hotel ceiling in the room was peeling in multiple places, but overall, the room was clean. Beds... More

We have we stayed at the Sheraton Lake Buena Vista numerous times as a family. We thoroughly enjoy our visit each time. We enjoy the pool, ping-pong tables, poolside nightly movie, and poolside bar. Would definitely recommend to anybody looking to stay in a great location near downtown Disney.

Everything was just alright.... there is potential but it needs some TLC. Great pool area, small bar area, okay food, older rooms and bedding. Let your reason for the visit to the area dictate your choice to stay here or not. The location is convenient.

We stayed here recently for a long weekend to escape winter in our hometown. We used some Starwood points which made it a great deal for us - so I can't comment on the value for the price. It is in a great location and close to Downtown Disney, I4, many restaurants close by, and 5 min from the Premium... More

Stayed there for one night. We were upgraded to a "Family Room" that had bunk beds and a master bedroom. It was spacious but in need of updating. Carpet had a tear and a cushion in the living room area was disgustingly stained. We always stay at Sheratons and Westins, this one needs help. The staff were really friendly though.
