"Perfect off-site hotel"
January, 2019 NEW
The Holiday Inn Resort Lake Buena Vista was a pleasant surprise. It was very clean and bright, and our view of the pool was so relaxing after a long day at Disney. Nicole in the Tiki bar was a great conversationalist! This hotel was convenient to all Orlando attractions. We will definitely stay here again.

Tip: Applebees has a breakfast buffet but it is more economical to go to Dennys down the street or chick fillet across the street or dunkin to the left.

"Awesome Hotel - OK Shuttle"
December, 2018
If not for the shuttle we would give this a 5 star review, which isn't totally fair because the shuttle is operated by a 3rd party. BUT, let's be honest, if you're here for Disney or Universal, the shuttle matters.
This hotel was one of the least expensive options, so we didn't expect too much, but we were floored. The hotel was beautiful and amazing. Our room was huge. The staff was friendly and wonderful. Pool is huge! It was a great hotel.
The shuttle always picked us up on time, but it took different routes all the time, so we were never quite sure when we'd get to the park. Getting back to the hotel was always a challenge. One night the driver stopped in some random location, and got off without saying anything. He was gone for literally about 15 minutes with no explanation. We took ridiculous routes back to the hotel which took forever to get back.
Other than the difficulty with the shuttle, it was amazing!!! (And, like I said the shuttle gets us where we are going, we just don't know when).

Tip: Amazing hotel, but if you want to get back fast at the end of the day, or get there right when the park opens, the shuttle isn't reliable enough to count on that.

"Great Hotel For Disney"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 16, 2019 NEW
I stayed at this hotel when taking a weekend trip to Disney. The room was clean and tidy, and the hotel is in a good location and provides shuttles to Disney World and other locations. The best thing about this hotel is the service. Every employee was extremely helpful and I felt like there was top notch service provided at this hotel. It made me feel valued and really made my trip. This is definitely my go-to for future Disney trips!

Applebees restaurant was Delicious!!! but the waiting list on December 31st at night was more than 30 minutes, even with many empty tables, and there were no reason for that. The hotel was very good, all the staff very kind.

"A little disappointed "
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed January 11, 2019 NEW
We checked in for a short visit to Walt Disney World. From the outside, the hotel is nice. However, very confusing to navigate. The pool was closed, which wasn’t a big deal since it was cold. It’s very easy to miss the entrance as well. There was a black limo that sat in the driveway the entire time we were checking in blocking most of the driveway. I like that Applebee’s is attached to the hotel. So the bad...walking in the room was small for an upper level room. Still no big since we were only there for two nights. The room was cold so I walked over to the unit to turn on the heat. The cover to the filter was laying on the ground. Broken. The fan is VERY loud and being such a small room you can’t really escape it. According to a sign in the room they have new beds. They are way too firm. I woke up with a sore back not to mention tossing and turning most of the night listening to the heater run. Here’s the big thing. We both crawled into our respective beds around 11:30pm. My mom’s side had a red substance on the white sheets. It looked like chocolate to be honest but very noticeable. The only saving grace was the lady and man that came to change the bedding. The lady has worked for the hotel for 25 years. She has an accent but I can’t quite place it. She was so sweet! Recommendation to management, check your housekeeping staff. This was an unacceptable to find a room in this state. Obvious problems that could be fixed. Rate was cheap but you pay $21.95 a night for a resort fee and the major attraction is down (the pool). I wouldn’t stay here again.
