The hotel was a great spot that is surrounded with many things to do, but did not need to go anywhere with my kids because all of the activities. Jasmin by the pool is so amazing with my family & should be an example of a sheraton staff. As well Julian by the pool always had good service. At front...

My family and I had a great experience at the Sheraton Lake Buena Vista resort. In particular, the pool attendants did a great job of interacting with the kids, keeping them engaged, and creating an overall welcoming atmosphere. In particular, Jonathan was outstanding. He had a great personality and made us feel right at home very quickly. In addition Edgar...

Well positioned - but the website made it look more serene than it is. It is at the intersection of 2 highways - and traffic is extremely loud - all night and day. I have stayed at other Starwood properties in far larger cities (Delhi, Dhaka, NYC) without problem - so the windows must be inferior against noise. The service...

We enjoyed our stay while visiting Epcot a few days before Christmas. We were celebrating Christmas with family and were short on wrapping paper. When I asked the front desk staff where I could get some wrapping paper, she offered the paper she had in her car. This saved me a trip away from the hotel with traffic and added...

Stayed here for nearly a week, as I did the previous year. The building doesn't look like much and shows its age. Looks like the rooms and hallways got renovated in the area I was in. I got a room facing the pool which is nice, but extremely loud. Every year in December they seem to get huge groups of...

Stayed here years ago when it was called the Sheraton Safari and have stayed at most other Orlando hotels in the area. Got a cheap rate and thought we would come back here. We got a rate of $79.00 non-refundable rate on spg website. The hotel sure has aged and it shows. Overall, it is a good family budget hotel....

I visited this hotel this past weekend seeing a friend and his family who came down from New Jersey to get to this hotel. It was an OK hotel at best with several positives and negatives. The rooms ran roughly $125 a night on a weekend pre-tax, fair I guess considering the location and traffic here. The rooms felt small...
