Holiday Inn Resort Lake Buena Vista
- What's Included
The facilities were basic but clean. The staff was pretty grumpy but other than the lack of friendliness they did their jobs.The included breakfast would have been better if we'd skipped it. The stuff that looked like it was scrambled eggs was inedible granular goop. The things that looked like they were supposed to be fried eggs were similarly unpalatable. We did toast and coffee after tossing the egg-looking offerings.There is a pizza place around the corner for dinner and some other restaurants not too far from the hotel.
At check-in I was not told time of breakfast or where it even was, I was not told where I could find my room or where the stairs were. When I got to the room the room was a good size but the counter and sink in the bathroom was extremely low. The remote control had a piece of Scotch tape holding the batteries in which didn't do the job well. During breakfast everything was okay except the "scrambled eggs" it was extremely mushy. I went to get an instant oatmeal package but could not find the hot water to make it, the breakfast attendant went inside a door but never came out. I had a do not disturb sign on my door the entire stay but housekeeping ignored it and knock on the door when I opened the door she said sorry I didn't see it. Other than that the hotel was close to a lot of different restaurants. Traffic in the area is heavily congested but it is near the Disney parks and close to Universal Studios as I utilized both. I would have loved if the front desk told me about the shuttle to the Disney parks, it would have saved me 60.00 dollars for parking but other than that it was a good stay.
This hotel has been great to stay while we were in Orlando. It is clean and the pool with a slide is nice too. The rooms are very clean.They do offer a shuttle to the theme parks which is convenient but plan on it taking about an hour as there are other shuttle stops along the way.Getting to other places in Orlando would be best if you had your own car as this hotel is not in convenient walking distance to the outlets or other attractions. The breakfast is not good.The eggs are made from powder and everything else seemed to be pre-made, the danish and pastries were dry. The A/C unit was good, just a little loud at night with it going off and on.
I booked this hotel based on the overall reviews and the pictures posted. Such a disappointment. The room was old and musty smelling. It was very outdated and there were lots of stains on the ceiling. The breakfast was sub-standard. I'm glad it was cold outside and not swimming weather because from what I saw the pool was very small. The best tip I can give is that there are other hotels in the area to try and I would avoid this one. The only pro is that the check-in was easy and the male employee was very nice.
The hotel was okay, nothing fancy, not the cleanest. Rooms are big, bathroom was dated and small. Breakfast provided was poor, powdered eggs and not much else. Okay for pastries, oatmeal, juice -- coffee wasn't drinkable.
