“Excellent Value, Great Location, Spacious, Clean, New”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2005

This was our second visit to the Hawthorne Suites in Lake Buena Vista. This is a newer property located very close to Disney. The rooms are spacious and clean with 2 TV's and a full kitchen. Even though we didn't use the kitchen, the refrigerator has an automatic ice maker which is great.
The price was a great value and I would suggest going directly to the Hawthorne website. I would definitely stay here again.

Some negatives..

Reviewers mentioned the breakfast is not that great, it's not..but its free! Not alot of fruit or selection or danish's.

The pool is small for a hotel this size. Children tend to occupy the entire pool. Also, Jacuzzi is not working properly, no bubbles.

The managers reception is horrible, beer and wine, chips and salsa, skip it..trust me. Not sure what one reviewer was talking about..hamburgers and potato salad? I did not see this.

Bring your own hair conditioner, they do not provided, only shampoo.

Bath towels are small.

Housekeeping needs to sharpen up, our bathroom tissue was not replaced, spare change was taken, I suppose they thought is was a tip. TV remote needed new battery. Bathtub drain was very slow. Some grease around stovetop (need to invest in oven cleaner for cleaning hotplates).

Overall the property is a great value. The negatives are not significant.

Hawthorn Suites was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. They do not charge a lot of money and give you great things. For only a little over $100 a night, they give you a full kitchen, regular size refrigerator, dishwasher, two TV's, and a living room as well as a bedroom. What more could you ask for from an inexpensive hotel? The breakfast is also nothing to complain about. For a free breakfast, they give you tater tots, sausage, bagels and various other things. The location is great, only about 10 to 15 minutes from the parks. We will definetely stay at the Hawthorn on our next visit to Orlando.

We read some of the reviews on this hotel and noticed that they were very mixed, so were prepared for anything! What we got however, was a fantastic hotel and a fabulous holiday. We cannot praise this hotel highly enough. The suites are very spacious and are cleaned every day by an excellent maid service (and we're fussy!). The reception staff were always very friendly and helpful, we had a couple of common holiday problems and they were dealt with very quickly and efficiently. A few reviews complained about the noisy air-conditioning but this was certainly not the case in our room. It was adjustable and not noisy at all.

We had breakfast as an when we felt like it so the repetition was not an issue and after all it is FREE for all those complainers. We only had food in the evening a couple of times. It was again free but not adequate enough for a meal. We preferred to eat out and experience the different restaurants in the area and there are more than plenty within walking distance. Jungle Jims was a favourite for us and our kids.

All in all, we would recommend this hotel to anyone and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again in the future.

we have stayed at the hawthorn suites the last 4 yearsand we are returning this year(2005).
it is in a great location for all the parks and most of all THE OUTLET SHOPS!!!!
downtown disney is only a few minutes away

The staff are excellent and very helpful and have become very good friends, we were there during hurricane francis and although it was a very, very,very long weekend we always felt safe as the staff had worked hard taking all the precautions they could for the storm, they stayed very calm even with the most awkward guests!!!
The breakfast is basic but it is free and just meant to send you on your way to the parks
so go on give it a go,check out the web-site, book on-line and pay a few $'s extra and get a pool view
