My review is a little late, we stayed at Best Western Lakeside back in March, but I just found this site LOL. I've read some of the previous reviews, and while I can agree that the hotel is a bit older and outdated, and the cleanliness level has some room for improvement, I feel the hotel was a good value...

The hotel was great!! We were very close to Magic Kingdom, which was the reason we were in Orlando. We got a room on the first floor on the corner of the building, right across from the pool, the playground, the basketball courts AND the mini golf. I was travelling with my 15 year old cousin, 12 year old brother...

The hotel charges $7.50 "resort" fee per day. Considering this, one could upgrade to a better hotel for the same cost. This is a very old hotel. The rooms are small, and the quality of things like towels, TV, stations, pillows, etc. are really lacking. My room smelled. The hotel also attracts an interesting array of personalities. The pool is...

The staff was very friendly and helpful. We ate at the breakfast buffet one morning, it was nothing spectacular, but good enough.

Very Clean. Great price and nice resort. Had a nice pool (didnt use it but looked nice) and the location was great. It was like a hop and a skip away to Disney! The wifi didnt work in the rooms was the only downfall.
