“Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Stayed for three nights; booked this based on Trip Advisor reviews. It was a great value for the money. We could have spent more and probably not have gotten much more. The location was ideal, the rooms were clean and the beds very comfy. The staff was great and the breakfast buffet was excellent. We booked a Disney View room and it wasn't worth the extra money. We only saw Epcot's fireworks (where were Disney's?) and that was nothing great. Save your money and get a room on a lower floor - you can watch the fireworks from the outside stairwells for free. The only real negative was that after checking in we were sent to get our "check in package" which turned out to be a pitch for a timeshare. You're offered a free breakfast and discounted tickets if you sit through their two hour presentation. We didn't do it but talked to people who did and they said they would rather have skipped it and paid full price for the tickets. Overall, a great stay in a clean, comfortable, friendly hotel. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed 7 nights at this hotel. Love the proximity to all the Disney World Theme Parks. Rooms were very clean and staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Shuttles to and from the parks were clean, comfortable and punctual.

We missed the traditional Best Western complimentary breakfast, but there was a full restaurant for a price on location. The hotel is conveniently located to many shops and eateries.

Great price.

I stayed at this hotel twice over the summer. Once in late June and then once in August. Both times were amazing. Staff was excellent and very friendly. Rooms were really clean and nicely presented. Shuttles to the parks were punctual and comfy. Breakfast at the hotel was nice as well. Great location as well as it is next to a bunch of great shops and restaurants. Nice pool and deck as well. Overall one of Orlando's best hotels for the price. Absolutely perfect place to stay with your family and friends.

Room Tip: All rooms are great.

We stayed for one night the weekend of July 12, 2014 for our mini road trip. I loved the place! It was really nice and comfortable. Loved the view of Spaceship Earth from our balcony on the 9th floor. I'm sure if we would have gotten back sooner, we would have seen a terrific fireworks show! The little store in the lobby was well stocked with snacks, and I was so happy to get a Mt. Dew! We bought our tickets right in the disney store in the lobby, too! The shuttle did get crowded but I'm thinking that's because it WAS July... I was extremely happy! We are heading back this Thursday through Sunday and I chose this hotel because I had such a great experience. I love love staying at a disney resort, but this is a great option and easier on the wallet.

Room Tip: I was happy with the 9th floor, had a great view.

the hotel was very nice, however, I think I would prefer to stay in Disney park on next visit due to the numerous perks you get from within the park. The staff at Best Western was wonderful .. Staff always accommodating and friendly

I booked the Best Western at Lake Buena Vista on Priceline through the name your own price tool. With this I got a nightly rate of $50 for a king size bed with sofa bed which was very comfortable after a long day at the parks. My linens were replenished daily and the housekeepers kept everything tidy. We were locked out of the room once and easily and quickly had our key replaced.

As for the shuttle service I found it very adequate. The shuttles were there for the most part when they were supposed to be and we never had to wait very long. One of the downsides is this hotel shares a bus with all the others on the right side of the road so it does get very crowded on the bus. Fortunately the Best Western was the first stop so we were able to get first dibs on seating.

There was an $11 per day resort fee which I found reasonable with the cost of the room.

Stayed August 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Cheap. Pizza hut, Game room, Restaurants on the ground floor. A relief when Attraction Parks are closed due to weather. Buses ran to schedule and independent trips could also be arranged. Takeout deliveries were unimpeded and we had a microwave oven and fridge. Staff were quite friendly and very helpful. Rooms!!! Need new decor, faaaast. Horror laminated kitchenette console. Vending machines dispensed ice tea over soda selections. Why? Good value though.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the same floor as the laundry floors. Avoid rooms overlooking the pool.
