“Very good. Recommend.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Got a Hotwire deal to this "Lake Buena Vista " East, east east, border Kissimmee. That,s just a hotwire gimmick. Hotel was fantastic, breakfast brilliant, swimming pool and hot tub was the answer after a long 30 hr flight. Should have stayed longer. Right next door to my favorite Walmart. I recommend this place and would stay here again.

The most remarkable thing about this hotel was the amazing breakfast. It wasn't gourmet or anything, but the variety was about double or triple what we expected and everything provided was very fresh and tasty. The sausage was some of the best I've ever had. There was even a little machine that made pancakes that was really fast and yummy. The breakfast area was huge too - so nobody was crowded or climbing over each other. That made it a lot easier to navigate with children at the busy time when everyone was trying to eat a huge breakfast before heading into the parks.

This hotel is just as close to Disney Main Gate as the All-Star Disney resorts, and maybe even closer. Some reviews said it was dated, and perhaps the borders & colors are just a few years old, but I really didn't notice anything objectionable - especially given the price. If I paid $200 for this hotel I might call it dated, but for $50 I was actually very impressed at how new things were.

The hotel was very clean, the man Johnathan who checked us in was very helpful. We had asked for a crib and it was delivered right away. The shuttle to the parks only runs a couple of times a day, but since this hotel cost less than half what the Disney All-Stars would have cost we didn't mind paying for parking at the parks.

Good location, clean hotel, excellent hot breakfast and the nicest and most responsive staff. Vincent and Jonathon from the front desk were particularly helpful and accommodating. When needed, maintenance and cleaning staff were always available and prompt. Nothing but good things to say about the trip and the value from this location. We would definitely return again.

Basic hotel could use some updating but clean and serviceable. The room was plenty big, more than enough space. Beds comfortable enough, bathroom nice. Value comes b/c there's internet, parking and park shuttles (which we didn't) use and the breakfast. It's an upgrade on basic continential, makes this place worth it.

Only complaint: name LBV is misleading; this place isn't really LBV or near Downtown Disney. It's Kissimmee, near the Walmart off 535/192 (so still a decent location, but further from WDW).

Got this place 'blind' via a bid and for $, would do so again.

Room Tip: Only one elevator, so expect to walk around - or do stairs.

From the outside of the hotel you would think that it would be nice inside but the inside seems kind of run down. There was only one staff person at the front desk and I had to wait 10 minutes to get my room keys. The carpet needs to be replaced and the internet is extremely slow. I would suggest, especuially to those with children to stay somewhere that is officially linked with Disney.

Great hotel to stay at for all things Disney. Ideal location for anyone not staying on Disney property - about 4 miles from the Magic Kingdom. Like many have said the walls are thin, but it wasn't anything disconcerting. The extended pool hours were a great service after a day "at the parks".

Front desk was very helpful when a member of our party became ill. Gave great directions and information on the nearest hospital. The next morning they were very kind in directing up to a pharmacy.

Room Tip: Hotel sits far enough off the road that there are no traffic noises.

Our family of 4 stayed here for a week while visiting the parks. PROS:Friendly staff, easy check in, FREE good hot breakfast, FREE ok shuttle service, good pool and hot tub, ok weight room, good room. CONS: Slightly thinner walls however most guests are polite and quiet after 10:30 pm and most guest do not make any noise again until 6 or 7am. There was only one night around 10:30pm when our neighbors were getting loud but one call to the front desk and the noise problem was fixed. I was worried about staying here because of the thin wall reviews but I am a light sleeper and I was able to sleep. The shuttle service is not the greatest but it saved us from paying a taxi about $60 round trip each day from the parks. The breakfast is really good and saved us about $30 each day. I am glad we stayed here and we would stay here again! We really liked the breakfast, pool and hot tub. The staff was very friendly and provided everything we asked for from extra towels, to vacuuming the room after we got sand in it from the beach! Also, Heather at the front desk was really helpful and made us feel at home!
