The rooms are just what the pictures show on their website. I was nervous because you never know what you are going to get but everything was great. The free daily breakfast and full in room kitchen saved my family a lot of money during our stay. The drive to the parks was so easy we ended up driving rather than taking the shuttle. That would be my only negative, was there was not very many options for the shuttle to the Disney parks. We will be back again!

I stayed here for Orlando Nerd Fest 2014. I decided to choose this hotel rather than the nearby host hotel because of the kitchenette. It turned out to be a perfect choice. I was able to cook lunch and dinner in my room daily.
I also loved having two full rooms, complete with couch and desk. The free WiFi worked fine; not exceptionally fast, but it worked for checking email and the like.
I should note that there is no maid service on weekends unless you request it. This wasn't really an issue for me since I was staying by myself. The staff was always friendly.
I highly recommend this hotel.

We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Lake Buena Vista for 10 days while visiting the Disneyworld area. I am very happy with our hotel of choice as the location near Downtown Disney is a pleasant 10 min walk to lots of restaurants. You can also walk 10 mins the other way if you want to try the American restaurants like Denny's, Olive Garden and the like.
The hotel shuttles were so very easy to use. This point was my one big concern before travelling as things are so spread out with Disneyworld, but the shuttles were always on time, clean and so easy to use. The kids loved the heated pool and we always had to have a dip when we got back to the hotel.
The restaurant in the hotel has a great selection and we enjoyed each meal we ate there.

In my opinion this hotel cannot be faulted and provides excellent value close to all major amenities, parks and a great base if you want to travel and explore other parts of Florida. We found the Hotel staff to be extremely professional, very friendly and informative. On arrival we were upgraded to a Junior Suite, which proved to be very spacious, at no extra charge, and had great views of the local area. Rooms were cleaned and clean towels replenished daily. It has well attended gardens and pool area, with a small gym.
There is ample parking at the Hotel, however, there is a daily chargeable fee for this facility at $9 per day for self parking, $18 for valet parking.
In summary, I would thoroughly recommend this hotel, and would not hesitate to stay here for future visits.
