“The great surprise was no surprises!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

We visited this Radisson during Thanksgiving week, the busiest time of the year for Disneyworld. The employees were cheerful and friendly, the houskeeping staff was efficient and pleasant, there were plenty of towels, plenty of quiet, everything was clean and looked like new. The lobby was upscale and the people at the front desk were knowledgable and accomodating. Before you start thinking that this is being written by a relative of the manager, we drove down to Orlando from Michigan, and used to be Disney Vacation Club members before having to sell our property last year. Rather than give up on Disney, we looked for a hotel close by. We had a great stay for a great price, with no extra charges, fees or surprises, like some places we have stayed. We left the hotel before 9 every morning, and parked at Downtown Disney, grabbed breakfast at Earl of Sandwich (best deal in Disney, by the way) and rode Disney transportation our entire trip. We walked to Disney the first day, but it was a bit too far to do on a regular basis. The hotel provides a bus, but we like to keep it flexible and didn't schedule around their bus times. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a fun, affordable Disney experience!

Room Tip: We stayed in a room far from the elevator, so it was nice and quiet from the equipment and foot traf...

Dear ‘684KurtZ’:

Your feedback is not only valuable to us, but also to other prospective guests- thank you for your sincere words. We truly believe in offering the best value possible to our guests and feel that it ought to include COMPLIMENTARY Parking & Internet and we choose to NOT charge ‘Resort Fee’s here…those extras truly add up and we do not feel it fair to charge our guests for them! Thank you for highlighting that in your review! Best wishes to you and please come back soon!

This hotel is great! It's walking distance to restaurants and just a quick drive to the parks and outlets. The room was clean and comfortable with a mini fridge. Free parking without the hassle of having to valet. The sleep number beds are great and there was an iPod dock in the room which was a huge bonus! My room faced the parkway and yet I found it very quiet and peaceful. No complaints! I'd gladly stay here again!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Recently stayed here for 3 nights in November 2012. We had a good experience and recommend it to others too.

The only complaint would be access, there is only one way to enter the hotel parking lot, so a few times we had to go out of our way,then U-turn to get back to the Hotel.

The rooms were spacious, the beds were comfortable, everything was clean in the room, hallways, and parking lot. Bathrooms were a good size too. Our room with 2 queen beds, sofa and desk also had a bar area (mini frig, microwave, coffee pot and storage area for snacks). Perfect for a family of four.

We paid $80 for weeknight and $100 for weekend nights, very fair for this hotel.

In the area you will find plenty of restaurants (there is a restaurant on-site too) and a Wal-Mart is maybe 2 miles away. Next to the hotel is a discount gift shop.
Took us 5 minutes to get to Downtown Disney and another 7 minutes to get to the Disney theme parks by car. The hotel offers transportation to the parks as well.

Recommendation: When making reservation ask for a room that is opposite the interstate, occaionally we would hear some highway noise...not enough to keep us awake.
Overall a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Select a room that does not face I-4

We recently used the Radisson Lake Buena Vista for a training meeting for a group of over 40 guests and had a wonderful experience. Angela's attention to detail was impeccable. Her planning and little touches made each of our meeting attendees feel welcome. Vijay helped us organize a great welcome reception and even prepared a special treat for the group.

Everyone was pleased with the spacious and updated rooms. Not a single complaint received, and it's usually hard to please a group. We will definitely be back for future meetings.

Stayed here for 8 days with my family in June. We loved the hotel from the pool to the staff everything was great. Staff were very friendly :). The food in the bar was nice too but only ate there the one time. The shuttle buses to Universal and Disney World were very handy. You just have to manage your own time carefully. We had no complaints at all.

Room Tip: Family rooms are massive and very useful. Ask for a room with a Disney view.

The hotel is conveniently located off I-4 near Disney attractions. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was clean and up-to-date with nice toiletries.
