“Enjoyed our stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at the Staybridge Suites in Lake Buena Vista. We stayed in a one bedroom suite. We were impressed with the cleanliness and how attentive the employees were. Our room was a corner room on the second floor. There is no elevator so we had to carry our luggage up the stairs. If walking up stairs is an issue, ask for a room on the ground floor. The room was a good size. The room had a huge walk in closet and a good sized vanity. The bathroom was very tiny, though. There was barely room to move in there. It seems that it would have made sense to make the walk in closet smaller in order to give more room in the bathroom. We enjoyed the breakfast but it gets crowded so try to get there early. There is a waffle making station but there was always a line when I went to make the waffles. It might help to have a waffle station in each of the dining room areas rather than in just one of them. We only got to the evening reception once, but it was nice and it wasn't crowded. There is seating outside as well as inside. My only real complaint about the property is that although it's been recently renovated the thermostat is ancient and it was very hard to regulate the temperature in the room. It was freezing when we got to the hotel and I adjusted it downwards and then it got too hot during the night. In the three nights we were there I never got it to a comfortable temperature. It was either too hot or too cold. It would have been nice if they had put digital thermostats in when they did the renovations. Hopefully this is something that will be updated soon. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed at the Staybridge for 11 nights through late August to early September. Excellent choice for commuting to most of the main Orlando attractions and quite central for shopping and dining out. The suites are very nicely done with adequate space for a mid size family like ours. Kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool and hot tub which stay open till 11pm. Daily breakfast was adequate but we got a bit tired of having the same spread everyday! Coin operated laundromat is very efficient.

Would have rated the hotel a 5 out of 5 but for the inconsistency in its cleaning policy. Upon check in we were advised that there would be a daily basic service and a three-day and seven-day cycle for deeper cleaning. Unfortunately this schedule was not maintained by housekeeping. Nonetheless I would return and have recommended Staybridge to family already.

Room Tip: Our suite was in building 10 and we had absolutely no issues with street noise. Also leads off to a...

We were very happy with our stay at the Staybridge in August/September. Loved the room with suite and full kitchen. Decent breakfats, lots of choices and Tuesday-Thursday had 2 hours of appys, wine and beer which was nice. Lovely pool area and areas to sit outside and enjoy breakfast in the morning or drinks in the evening. Front desk was very helpful with any of our questions or needs. Had driving directions to almost anywhere there printed out and also a shuttle company they recommended and called for us that had a set rate to any of the Disney parks or nearby attractions. There was a free shuttle to the four Disney parks and outlet mall that was on time and had at least one or two options for the morning and return evening trip. This hotel was a great value for our trip. We were offered discount tickets to Disney parks if we attended a two hour time share presentation which we did and was not too painful and well worth the discount. This would not be for everyone but we had lots of time and so chose to do so. They are not directly affiliated with Staybridge, just at the service side at times (not front desk) and we did not feel pressured at all, just given that option. Saving $500 was worth it to us! All in all we would recommend this hotel and stay in future. Was well cleaned and comfortable. Close to grocery stores and a few restaurants.

Room Tip: We chose ground floor as no elevators and lots of luggage. We were at back and it was quiet.

We were 4 adults and 3 children in a 2 bedroom suite, very comfortable and well equipped with a full kitchen and two bathrooms. It was an excellent option on a Theme Park vacation; for a fraction of the price of Disney/Universal resorts, one can easily return to the hotel for a break during the long days in the parks. Located close to the Disney parks, Sea World, and several outlet malls, it has a very nice swimming pool, hot tub, daily breakfast, and grocery stores, restaurants, and gas stations at a walking distance. Our room was on the 3rd floor with view to the pool, which I fully recommend; it is tiring to go up 68 steps in the Orlando heat, but the room is close to the pool, away from traffic, and noise was never a problem. Free wireless in the room and common areas is excellent - why pay hefty overcharges elsewhere?
Many improvements can still be made: (1) the pool could close at midnight instead of 11pm, as somedays it is hard to be back from the parks in time for a refresher. (2) the breakfast is good, but after 3 or 4 days the lack of variety beco,es evident. For instance, why only 1 yogourt flavour? Cereals are limited to sugar rich varieties. At least the coffee was great, really great. (3) the business centre is helpful only to print online documents. Forget using the browser, a usb key or transfering files between drives; the prehistoric machimes will waste hours of your short vacation time.
Overall, we had a great time and would not have been able to afford the overpriced park resorts. I recommend this hotel and would stay again, but I would bring my own morning cereal and laptop computer.

I recently had the privilege of staying here with my stepfather who is 100% service connected disabled vet. His wheelchair wheel was popping off and the manager and maintenance man on duty (bob and Colin) were beyond kind enough to fix it! The service goes beyond excellent. The afternoon social is not a high end affair it is bare bones and the breakfast food is not the highest quality but it is offered for free. I enjoyed the scrambled eggs and home made oatmeal but the rest if it is very high carb food. The fact that I was there during an 85% capacity time is very impressive because from what I saw the breakfast is non stop and full and they didn't run out of food. This is FREE people. No one can complain about FREE. This is what you would expect...a lot of people who rather than pay for something show up and try to get as much as they can. The clientele is not always polite I have to give kudos to the staff. I made sure to be on the top floor because the walls are thin and I am an early riser (6 am).

Stayed for the first time here this past weekend. The room was exceptionally clean and the layout of the 2br/2 bath suite was great! Only 5 minutes from downtown Disney, and 15-20 from the Magic Kingdom was not bad at all. The hotel shuttles could use a few more runs to get to the park and because they were limited runs, we drove and paid for parking. Location was terrific as far as restaurants/CVS and Walgreens/WalMart etc. We were on a ground floor room and as far as noise factor, not bad. You could still here some walking about but I've been in noisier hotels. The kitchen had EVERYTHING. Full size fridge, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, dishes, plates and cups,flatware, coffeemaker, and the bathrooms each had a hairdryer. The free breakfast buffet was pretty decent but we made it in our room kitchen the next day. Overall, I'd definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: No elevators, so if you have strollers/cribs/or large amounts or lots of luggage it would probably b...

My husband's sister and family had stayed here the year previously and we visited them one evening. We were all enjoying a three-day visit to Walt Disney World. We very much liked the hotel. Set-up is great for families. It is great to have a full kitchen for when you want to cook a meal at home or for lunches. We loved the location - close to attractions, restaurants, shopping, etc. Hotel is very clean, pool is very nice and breakfast daily is great! The hotel had recently been renovated and was very modern and nicely done! Had a great time and will definitely come back again!
