“Great hotel and location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

I had stayed there 6 months before and found that check in was a breeze. I was upgraded to a Suite and the room is very well furnished and clean. The breakfast is great and the over all hotel is in good shape. The parking is limited as it shares a shopping strip center. The hotel seems to attracts "youth groups" so be prepared for a mob at breakfast.

We do randomly have youth groups stay at our hotel during the year, but this is not a regular part of our clientele. The breakfast hours are from 6:30 – 10:00 am daily and the last hour of breakfast service is the busiest time. For people looking for a more quiet breakfast experience we recommend arriving earlier in the morning. This holds true for when we have groups staying at the hotel or when we do not since we stay busy year round. We thank you for your repeat business, your 2nd review and for your compliments about our hotel. We look forward to welcoming you back on a return trip should you have the opportunity to do so. Thank you again for your review and for choosing the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Lake Buena Vista for your trip to the Orlando Walt Disney World area.

Sincerely,

Sean Lower

We stayed here on our arrival day, before heading to stay on property at Disney. It suited that purpose well. The hotel was very clean and modern looking. The lobby was nice and all the staff that we encountered were friendly and helpful. It is located in a shopping center, with some chain restaurants and tourist shops. Nothing fancy but helpful if you don't have a car. We wanted to buy some groceries to take to Disney and there were a few grocery stores close to this hotel, along with a ton of restaurants within 2 min drive. We went to Downtown Disney the night we stayed, and it was about a 5-7 min drive. Very convenient. I looked at staying closer to DD to walk, but when I saw those hotels, they were still a long walk to DD. The drive was more comfortable in the hot Florida sun.
The rooms were ok. Very small for a one bedroom suite, but for the value. it was excellent. I paid less than $80 under a Marriots rewards special for a one bedroom suite. It was such a great bargain that I was satisfied. Everything was very clean and had the Marriot clean bedding. A must these days.
Over all, I would recommend the hotel, for a short stay or a great bargain if you are only sleeping in your room.

I've stayed at many Fairfield Inns. This one was about average. The staff was nice and the rooms were okay. I mainly didn't like the hotel because of the location. It's like it was dropped into a mini mall parking lot. The location isn't very convenient and the parking lot was awkward. I'm not not-recommending the hotel, but checkout the other Fairfield Inns in the area first.

Room Tip: Of you have children, some rooms have bunk beds, which is nice

We thank you for your review of our hotel and for the room tip about the family suites. They are very popular among families with younger children thanks to the separate area for the kids complete with bunk beds, PS3 gaming system and Panasonic 32” flat screen LCD TV. We hope you will consider a return trip to stay with us again at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Lake Buena Vista on a future trip to the Orlando Walt Disney World area.

We stayed at this property while visiting Disney World for a few days. The hotel is just average. We stayed in a King suite with our 2 1/2 year old. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I think the guy's name at the front desk was Jacob. He was very nice and extremely helpful. I read the reviews and most were accurate the hotel did seem a little dated. It is located in a strip mall but that did not bother my family. we did not have a problem with parking. The room that we stayed in had to have been dusty because it triggered my son's allergies. He coughed and sneezed while in the room. Thankfully we were not in the room long at all! The breakfast was good and there were a Lot of options! We were also able to purchase our Disney tickets at this hotel. This location is really close to Disney. We were also close to numerous restaurants and the premium outlets!!!

This Hotel was great! We were at this hotel for 5 days 4 nights for my son 3rd Birthday. Checked in sept.2-sept.6 2013 Very clean, good service, The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good too. They had a lot of things: Scrambled eggs, Waffles,sausages,bagels,muffins,coffee,cereal,etc...The room was a good size. It was Me, my husband and 2 chilrens ages 3 and 1. The beds are very comfortable!
There's a lot of restaurants around the area. I even found a Cuban restaurant. I also found a Winn-Dixie supermarket not even 5 mins away.
Only a few miles from the parks. About a good 10-12 mins from Disney.
Will stay at this hotel next time for sure!

Overall, we had a good experience. The room was nothing fancy, but clean. A nice tv, good sized bathroom, etc. The free breakfast was well done - maybe a bit too busy for my liking, but that's probably a good sign. They had waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage, in addition to the standard bagels,muffins, coffee, cereal, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt. In short, you will not need to go out for breakfast unless you are looking for something special.

The location is excellent, literally right next to a strip mall with Giordano's Deep Dish pizza, a supermarket .5 mi down the street, and close access to Downtown Disney, and the other Disney parks. The pool is nothing special, then again they don't hit you with a resort fee that many hotels in the area do. Bedding is ok, not high end, but I did get a good nights sleep.

All and all, a great spot to stay at for a Disney/Orlando vacation.

We are also close to a wide variety of restaurants and the shopping outlet malls. We thank you for staying at our beautiful hotel and for the review you shared with other travelers. We hope you will return to the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott hotel in Lake Buena Vista on a future visit to the Orlando Walt Disney World area.

Good experience, good service! Very clean, quiet, free breakfast. Enjoy the pool and other areas from this hotel. Very convinient located close to all theme parks in Orlando. Beds are comfortable, it was a litter clustter for breakfast and maybe need more variety, but other than that we had a great experience at this hotel. Just a few miles from Disney World.
