“Loved It!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2007

We have just returned from a one week vacation to Orlando with our 3 kids (15yrs, 11yrs and 7yrs). We booked our vacation with Westjet Vacations. We are from Ottawa, Canada. We stayed at Staybridge and loved it. The rooms are spacious, we rented a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, Fully equip. kitchen, dinning room and living room with sofa bed. The pool was great, toys for the kids a nice waterfall and above all, it was heated! The jaccuzzi was nice but too hot. The breakfast was GREAT. They had everything, scrambled eggs, cereals, sausages, bacon, warm biscuits, muffins....and the best of all, you can make your own waffles and they are DELICIOUS!! The kids loved it. From Monday-Thursday between 5:30-7:30 they had free refreshments (Beer,wine, cola..) and they even had BBQ's for FREE!! I couldn't believe this, one night they had hotdogs and beans, the next night was ravioli with fresh buns.
Upon check-in they will give you a calendar with what's on the menu.

We went to all 4 Disney parks plus Typhoon Lagoon and our last day we went to Cocoa Beach which was only 1hr away.

The location is GREAT, everything is close by. The entrance to Disney Resorts is only 2 blocks away. Downtown Disney is only 5mins away, Magic Kingdom 10mins.
There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Also if you are renting a car, there are LOTS of outlets, souvenir shops and even a WalMart close by. Also there is a Walgreen pharmacy right across the street that is open 24hrs.

If you are looking for a great place to stay while visiting Orlando, Staybride Suites Lake Buena Vista is a MUST.

We will stay here again for sure!!

Just got back from 8 days in Orlando with my Family...first 4 days were spent attending a conference and we stayed in the Disney Beach Club Resort @ $400 per night...for one room with 2 beds. I was travelling with my family...wife and 5 and 3 year old. Don't get me wrong the Beach Club is a very nice place...but $400 for one room without any homey ammenties other than a very small fridge gets old very, very quick.

Once the conference was over and the tab became my responsiblity, we moved to the Staybridge Suites....The place is no Ritz, but, clean, spacious, and close to the park. Quite frankly, I was astonished with the value! With a AAA discount room was $127.50 per night for a 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment...fully stocked kitchen (utensils, etc. not food), daily housekeeping, nice heated pool with pool toys for the kids, awesome, hot all you can eat breakfast...only 2 miles from downtown disney in a very clean part of town (none of the Kissimmee kitsch).

Did not try the shuttle service so I cannot speak to that...

Place is a little dated but well maintained and you can tell it will continue to be...I travel a lot for pleasure and business and this is by far the best value I have encountered in a hotel! Having stayed at the 4 star disney and the 3 star Staybridge on the same vacation...I would choose the Staybridge regardless of the price.

Stayed 3 nights 2/25/07 and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Next year we are going to stay the whole week. VERY family friendly. My family booked the 2 bedroom suite and loved it. Nice and clean. Helpful, friendly staff. For a family with 2 adults and 4 children this was the place to stay. The breakfast didn't change much but it is included within the room rate and hey....kids love this stuff. Free use of the computer station which was limited to adults only (which I feel is wonderful). Very nice to be able to check your emails and not have to pay $4 a minute. Kids had a computer that they could use in game room.I found the hotel to be overall very clean. The laundry room could use some help, but not disguisting. The kids loved the pool and it was nice to get back from Disney on the FREE shuttle that was provided by the hotel and take an hour or two to swim before they hit the sack. Many places nearby to make those oops, I left it at home purchases. Walgreens across the street was the easiest and by far the least expensive. The Winn Dixie is within walking distance to purchase groceries if you choose to use your kitchen that has place settings for 6. Had to run to the airport to pick up Husband who was flying in a day later and we returned to the hotel at 2 am and felt very safe in the parking lot. Very well lit.
I am telling you as a bargain HUNTER...the Staybridge Suite is by far the best value that I have found and will return again next year with no hesitation.

Just back from two weeks at the LBV Staybridge and would definitely return. I would echo all of the recent positive comments about the rooms / amenities / staff. In particular, we liked the:
- free breakfast buffet (lots of choice)
- free Tues - Thurs Sundowner snacks / drinks
- free buses to Disney Parks (a bit late at times but it was v. busy)
- the pool area
- the large number of nearby restaurants
- the adjacent Winn Dixie supermarket / other shops

The stairs were a slight drag on arrival but, for UK readers, I should point out that the third floor only involves two flights of stairs!

  • Liked — Good sized rooms (2 beds + lounge / kitchen + 2 baths)
  • Disliked — Not having our own car, it sometimes took a while to get a bus / taxi to get around

We stayed here for 6 nights while we went to the Disney World parks. We were very impressed with the size of the suite, the cleanliness of the unit, the comfort of the bedding, the breakfast buffet, and the manager's receptions. In addition, the landscaping was attractive. It was an easy drive to Disney World and moderately priced restaurants were in walking distance, as was a grocery store. The only drawback was the lack of elevators, but we stayed on the 1st floor.

My husband, myself and 2 daughters (12 & 8) stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath suite during our trip to Orlando last week and we loved it! The girls loved having their own room and bath and TV. The rooms were very clean & pleasantly decorated. The full kitchen came in handy for snacks and light meals. (I didn't want to cook while on vacation but it also has pots and pans, etc.) The air conditioning worked well and is very quiet. There is a grocery store and restaurants right across the street within walking distance. The free breakfast buffet they served every morning had alot of variety. Everyone found something they liked and we saved alot of money not buying breakfast every day. We requested a 1st floor courtyard view and that is what we got. It was always very quiet. We usually went to sleep around 11:00 pm and I felt like we were the last ones awake. The grounds are very nice. We loved the pool. It was big enough that it never felt crowded and there was plenty of seating and towels always available. The pool is open until 11:00 each nite so there was plenty of time for a swim after leaving the parks. Most importantly, it was clean and the water temperature was perfect! My husband loved the hot tub but I thought it was a little too hot. The staff was always very friendly and helpful. There is a little business center with 3 computers that we used a few times. There is a shortcut to Seaworld that we used. (It took us less than 5 minutes) The Disney entrance is only a few blocks away also. We also drove to Busch Gardens (about 40 minutes). The drive from the airport was about 15 minutes. Overall, for the price we felt we got more than what we paid for and had a very good experience here. It was a very comfortable place to come back to at the end of the day and we are planning to stay again next year.
