We stayed at Best Western Lake Buena Vista Resort Hotel for four nights in March 2013. We were checked in by Shyla who was very pleasant and helpful and she even bantered with my 11 year old son about the on-site arcade.
The room (908) was pleasantly large with two double beds and a pull-out couch. Other decor included a lounge char, a working desk and a large flat screen TV. There was plenty of storage space in the room and lots of counter space to put things on. We did have some trouble with the AC as when we turned down the temperature of the thermostat the unit would kick on but warm air came out. It was not too warm and cooled down at night so it was not too bad. There is a nice balcony with two chairs and a table and we were able to see the fireworks from Epcot.
This hotel is close to Downtown Disney and other shopping areas. I, however, prefer the Maingate/Kissimme/Celebration area as the hotels are right off the highways and there is less traffic on the drive to the Disney parks.The hotel charges a $9.95 resort fee which includes free parking, free in-room wi-fi, and use of the swimming pools.
On our drive back home to Tallahassee, my 13 year old daughter realized that she had left her backpack in the room. I phoned the hotel and talked to Mike at the front desk who located the missing backpack and scheduled it with Housekeeping to be shipped back to me.
I booked this room through Priceline Name Your Own Price for $45/night; I was looking for a 2.5* room and was upgraded to this 3* hotel.
