“Nicely refurbished, convenient to Disney World”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

This former Country Inn & Suites has been very nicely refurbished. The rooms vary in size, I had one of the larger rooms, with an en-suite two person Jacuzzi tub (in the living room?). Good continental breakfast included, with a large number of tables. Video game room for the kids, along with a nice gym. Pool is on the small size and is on the east end of the building, so no sun in the afternoon. Friendly, helpful staff. Book early to get a good rate (I booked a month in advance with an AAA rate). Beds were a little too soft for my taste, as were the pillows, but I rarely find the firm beds/pillows I would like at any hotel. Nice to have a good size fridge in the room, along with a microwave. Several restaurants in the adjacent strip mall and nearby area. Only complaint, the maids NEVER replaced the coffee I used and I had to go find a maid every single day to get it!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the south side (facing the Sheraton) or on the north side at the east end. The roo...

Decided on this Fairfield as opposed to Marriott Village due to location. Rooms smaller than most Fairfield properties as this is a converted hotel. The remodel is nice, decor and amenities are good. Just a little disappointed by room size. Rooms, at least the one i was given, was much smaller than expected. The bathroom was incredibly small. Parking situation is a bit odd, they have a very small lot with the majority of the parking in the strip mall lot that the hotel shares with several restaurants and stores. Breakfast was good and as expected. I would try the Marriott Village location next time just to compare.

We stayed in the family suite with bunk beds. Please be aware that the bunk beds are not full length, I am 5'6 and it was cramped. The room was a bit crowded but to have the room separated and 2 TVs it is more than tolerable!

Breakfast filled up quickly so a table was hard to find but there were plenty of options.

We forgot our phone charger and the front desk made it seem like she could give us one to borrow and then quickly changed her mind. There is limited parking late night.

The restaurants nearby, walking distance, were great!

We would stay here again.

The family suites you mention are very popular among families with younger children thanks to the separate area for the kids complete with bunk beds, PS3 gaming system and Panasonic 32” flat screen LCD TV. We appreciate your comment on the bunk bed length, which is 69 inches (5’9”). They are ideal for smaller children considering this height limit. Thank you for your review and for choosing the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Lake Buena Vista for your trip to the Walt Disney World area. We are pleased to hear you would return to stay with us again in the future.

If you want a resort to hang out around the pool with tropical foliage and a tiki bar, this is not the place. If you want a room convenient to Disney, without the higher rates, then this fits the bill. The pool is small, but meant only for a quick dip, as most people will be doing the theme parks.
Parking may be a problem in the busy season, but we were OK finding spaces. The hotel is on the main street within walking distance of several restaurants. Did not hear any noise at all, although the location in attached to a strip mall.

Breakfast was very good, but very crowded as well. Hot foods, cereals, bagels, juices, etc. Staff very friendly and we received several calls during our stay to ensure everything was OK.

The king suite was two separate rooms, so that helped with late night tv viewing. Fridge and coffeemaker helped too. Room was clean and well stocked. Extra towels supplied when requested.

Some issues :
The bed was a bit tough on my back, but the nice pillows helped. The rate went up for Friday night, which was a surprise to us when we got the bill. One thing to watch out for is the very hot water which comes out of the tap, turn the tap to a much lower position than usual.

Overall a good value.

Our convenient location to Disney and the great rates are common reasons many guests share for choosing to stay at our beautiful hotel. The friendly team, clean well stocked rooms and great breakfast you mention are also great reasons to stay at our hotel. We would like to check on the water temperature and rate change issues you mentioned. Please contact me directly, I would like to identify the room number and stay dates so I can personally investigate to see what corrective actions need to be taken. Thank you for sharing your review and I hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to stay with us again at the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott hotel in Lake Buena Vista on a future visit to the Orlando Disney area.

I am a Marriott Rewards Member and I Love Marriott Properties, and for some reason I have avoided this Hotel because I was unsure of the location.Big mistake! Literally, 3 traffic lights to the Downtown Disney Area.
It was great..the rooms are clean, staff is very professional, and easy access to restaurants (you could walk to many).
The room has 2 Queen beds, each bed had 5 Marriott (the best) pillows, coffee machine and fridge. Complimentary Breakfast was really a full breakfast.. eggs, sausage, oatmeal, cereal, bagels, fruit, waffles, yogurt, muffins, juice....
Hotel has a swimming pool and a small gym. Off of the lobby was a childrens movie room, very cute, and another room for videos games, more like a living room, NOT arcade.
Price was great, too.
The only thing I was a little concerned about was the parking lot. It was in a small shopping center and it was not gated. But everything was fine, there were lots of cars much nicer than mine!
I will return to this hotel!!!

If you are coming to Orlando for a visit - not the best place. Located in a strip mall - not the best facilities - and the price is just about normal.

Nothing majorly wrong with the hotel, nothing impressive either.
