“Nice hotel, Good location, Very hard to access”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Booked this hotel for a very good rate for a weekend in September. The hotel is very nice, and I really have no complaints about the rooms themselves or the hotel interior. For what we paid, we couldn't really ask for more on that end. Further, the location within Orlando is great - very near Downtown Disney, right on I-4, so can also easily access other parks and touristy places in Orlando (i.e. Universal). However, the main drawback to this hotel is also the location of the hotel - that is, in a high traffic location that is quite difficult to exit at busy times of day. So, while the hotel is literally almost right on I-4 itself, it actually took us over 10 minutes to finally get onto I-4. For the price we got it for though, overall this hotel was a good value, and would stay there again. Importantly to me, there were much lower hidden resort fees than in other hotels I have stayed at.

After seeing a bad review for the Radisson on I-drive I called and asked to change my reservation to this location. I am soooo glad I did that! From the time we got out of the cab till the time we left everything was awesome.

Check In- The front desk person (Lady J) was so nice! She offered us a upgrade to a jacuzzi room and since we were celebrating my birthday we took it. They serve warm cookies at the front desk that are so awesome!!. Inside the hotel there is guest services where you can purchase tickets to the Disney Parks as well as Universal Studios.

Room- Our room was spotless, spacious and had great lighting. In the bathroom there were towels set up to look like an elephant.. too cute!! The bed was a Sleep Number bed where you can adjust each side of the bed to your personal comfort. The Jacuzzi was awesome! 2 people can fit in it perfectly (This is worth it especially after walking all day in the parks)

Amenities- There are shuttles that take you to the parks as well as the nearby outlets. The front desk provides a schedule to all the parks and the outlets. The shuttles are all on point and comfortable! Definitely an awesome deal! Also please go see Melissa at the hotel lobby bar!! She makes the best mimosas and Blue Long Island Ice Teas in the worlddddd! So definitely give her a try.
Overall it was a great experience and I will definitely be back!
THANK YOUY RADISSON!!

I booked this hotel through tripadvisor recommendations and myself and my wife were not disappointed.
It was easy to find from Orlando airport. Check in was no problem.
The room was large and well furnished. The sleep number beds were brilliant....myself and my wife want one in the UK!
The hotel was near to Disney and with easy access to the I4 interstate road.
Access to the hotel from the south bound Apoka-Vineland Road needed a U turn further down the road but that was no problem. Driving in Florida is easy.
We used this hotel for 2 nights as an infill prior to moving on to our main holiday destination for a further 14 nights.
We will use this hotel again .....no problem.

We stayed at this hotel twice in the period of one month. The whole hotel was spotlessly clean. The rooms were huge, and the beds were so comfortable.
The front desk was very fast and efficient.
The pool was a good size and nice and private.
Absolutely no complaints about this hotel. Super value and the nicest place stayed in during our month long stay in Florida.

Room Tip: I don't think you would have a bad room at his location. Most families staying here appeared to...

Great Location, rooms were modern and clean, no fees for parking, internet or resort fees! A great value for what you get, its rated as a 3-3.5 star hotel, I would rate it easily a 4star hotel!

If i had to complain about something (and i am stretching to find something) the Beds were not the best ever, but sleep number beds takes a few nights to get used to if you dont have one.

On a tangent, if you are going to disney, always take I4 back to the hotel at night, as any other way will require you to make an impossible uturn situation which takes forever, (there is no entrance from the south so I4 will make it easy for you)

I used to travel a lot for both business, and for pleasure, and in recent years, I have done anything I can to not have to stay in a hotel, because in the past 3 or 4 years, hotels seem to have just become terrible - so, I was INCREDIBLY pleasantly surprised with my experience at Radisson Orlando Lake Buena Vista, FL.

The staff were nice, friendly, and polite (and genuinely so - you could tell they weren't faking)

The desk staff made check-in a breeze, and answered patiently and politely every question I had - (and it was quite a few... ) The guest services staff were great, as was the bar and restaurant staff.

The room was as clean as any I have seen, even at hotels such as Omni or Kempinski Four Seasons hotels in Europe. The room did not smell bad, as most do these days, and the linen, carpet, draperies were all very clean. All equipment was in excellent repair, no broken or dirty appliances.

One other thing - Some may not appreciate this, but I sure did - they didn't have a bunch of sleazy TV channels offering pay-per-view porn, etc. - it's a nice, family oriented place.

Seems like the good feeling gets passed on to the guests, too - because nobody on the floor I was on slammed doors or had loud conversations in the hallways - another phenomenon of rudeness that seems to plague other hotels in the past 4 years or so.

I happened to be in town to perform at a charity function, and was towing a BIG trailer - normally, that would be hard to find parking for, but the staff made special accommodation for my vehicle and trailer. For that, I am TRULY grateful!

If you want a nice, clean, quiet, family-oriented hotel, stay at this one. If you're noisy and dirty, go somewhere else, and leave this little slice of heaven for the rest of us. :)

Room Tip: There aren't any bad rooms at this hotel as far as I could tell. Let the staff know what you wan...
