Best Western Lake Buena Vista Resort
- What's Included
OverviewLocated in Lake Buena Vista, close to the Walt Disney World® Resort and premium outlet mall. 26 km from Orlando airport.
We had the great privilege of being invited to the Nastia Liukin and Sand Dollar Invitational at ESPN . We wanted to stay a great place and near by ! Disney Springs is very close and always a favorite ! We have stayed at this Best Western many times and it is very comfortable and affordable !
My sister and I stayed overnight as we needed the room for an impromptu Disney trip. Living locally and visiting Orlando often, we have lots of hotels to chose from. We've stayed at nearby hotels for around the same price point with less problems. This was a cheaper last minute option.Pros:- Check in was a breeze.- Two separate self-parking lots with ample spots.- The room was clean for the most part.- Quick trip to Disney Springs and the parksCons: - We did have an issue with our sink upon returning for the night. When we got back from Disney Springs, we found bunch of black/brown stuff in the sink with what looked like a waterline. Apparently it backed up while we were gone? That was our best guess. Very disgusting. - We couldn't use a majority of the outlets in our room as the plugs would simply fall out. We could use a total of 2 in the entire room. Doesn't seem like a big deal until you need to charge your phone or use a hair dryer. - The thermostat was set pretty cold upon entering which was fine. We were given a note at check-in that you can call and have it changed to heat. But we could not get it to stay off or even change the temperature in the room to at least a few degrees warmer. The super thin blankets did not help, nor did the extra sheets we received.
Great economical hotel with balcony rooms facing Disney to enjoy fireworks. Within walking distance to Disney Springs, formerly known at Downtown Disney. Disney buses to Disney parks. Restaurant and Bar in hotel, as well as convenience store
Pros: The hotel was exactly what we needed-clean, up to date, a marketplace that had healthy snack and quick breakfast options (as an alternative to the $15 breakfast buffet option, which was pretty good). The staff was very pleasant and accommodating (i.e. allowed us to check in early, provided us with maps of Disney Springs, etc.). Cons: The free shuttle bus was a consistent problem. While it arrived at the hotel every morning on time we were left waiting at the park twice in the evening for over 45 minutes. By the second day we made sure to write down exactly where we were to be picked up in the Magic Kingdom so that we could avoid standing in the dark for so long like the previous night. We were specifically told at 25 and 45 past the hour. We arrived 10 minutes prior to pick up time as instructed. Again, we waited there for 45 minutes after arriving at 5:15. When we called the hotel it took quite awhile for the front desk to answer and when they did they had no idea we'd been waiting for that long (we called all 3 nights). And they stop at two parks and various hotels along the way. So, we walked out of the Magic Kingdom at 4:50, took the ferry/monorail and arrived in the parking lot by 5:15, and arrived at our hotel at 6:45. Maybe it's because we're new to traveling throughout Disney but I didn't anticipate spending nearly two hours with small children (and no bathroom options) from door to door. I realize that this was a budget friendly option (and I do feel I got my money's worth) I likely stay at another budget hotel that did not have a $15 resort fee or a free shuttle and likely take an uber or taxi back.
This was my second stay at the Best Western Lake Buena Vista, and I'm glad it still keeps up to a great standard. The hotel has friendly staff, is always clean and has great dining options. There is a breakfast buffet, a restaurant, bar and snack pantry. Rooms are very comfortable, have a great bathroom, and a decent size fridge. You can request a microwave if needed and staff will set it up in your room.There is also a great pool area, convenience store and a Disney shop where you can purchase tickets to the park. There are free shuttles to and from the hotel to all Disney parks, which come every 30min. It's only a $12 ride to universal studios also, so not too far for another park option. There is a 24hr supermarket about 10min walk from the hotel, and you will also find a plethora of restaurants. Most of these restaurants are family friendly and good value for money. The only reason I don't give the 5 stars is due to an issue I experienced with the internet. On my second last night, the internet dropped out completely. I spoke with the front desk and they stated there was no problem. I thought it may have been an issue on my end, so I went to seek internet elsewhere- my phone was fine. The next day there was still no internet. When I spoke to staff they stated I had to call tech support. I think it's a little rough to ask customers to call tech support for a problem that is the hotels. I had to not only call tech support, but they had to manually accept me back on to the hotel's network.Apart from this, Best Western is a great hotel for anyone but especially families- they even have washers and dryers! Great value for money and a friendly atmosphere.
