My partner and I stayed here for the middle two weeks of May 2017. This is a three star hotel and is great if you want a clean room with easy to reach amenities only a short distance from everything Disney. With most things Disney being a stone throw away, Universal and all the other parks being less than 15/20 minutes away, one of the outlet malls being 5 minutes away this is in a great location. All the staff we encountered were polite and friendly, our room was cleaned daily with fresh towels when we wanted them and plenty of soap. Both the fridge and Microwave did their jobs, the coffee maker could be a bit better and the room could have had a revamp but then again that's why it's not a a 4 star hotel but don't take this as a complaint, if we had of wanted that, we would have looked to spend more money on accommodation. Breakfast was alright, it did the job when we ate their (be careful if you're booking through Virgin Holidays, as you only get two free breakfasts). Wifi was available if a little slow and really bad when it was raining but I suspect that everyone was in their rooms trying to use it. The USB charging ports on the alarm clock were really useful too. Our room was located on the rear of the block, so we overlooked the lovely water fountain thing and the freeway, at first we were worried about the noise but when you're inside your room and the aircon is doing it's job we didn't even notice it. If you're looking for a good base to go to Disney parks then I would definitely recommend. Collapse

After booking this hotel in 2015, our dream came true to go to Disney. A 30 minute drive from the airport. The hotel is made up of 4 large complex blocks of 4 levels. The room had 2 large beds, a 32" TV. A safe which was free to use, free air con. In the bathroom there was a toilet and shower. The wash room had a sink, microwave and fridge. The rooms do overlook the free way however don't be put off by this. There is noise from people returning from the parks, so don't worry about this. There are 2 good size pools which offer free towels. Room keys are needed to get in. Open 9am - 10pm. There is bar/grill. They serve food, however the bar tender needs a little oomph as we waited 20 minutes for a apple juice and coke, the food arrived before our drinks. A little dissapointing as we were told "sorry i had forgotten about you". The bar tender was offered no help and was a little slow. The shop offers an array of goods/snacks and presents. However a little pricey. The light bite restuarant offer a good value buffet for breakfast and lunch. There are no reservations so just turn up when you are ready. The games room has a pool table, air hockey, pin ball machines. You need tokens from the machine inside but only cost $1. The grounds of the hotel are clean, and the fountains make for a great photo opportunity. The free transportation is great as you save a lot of money. However the timetable needs a little alterations for pick up and drop offs. I would split the pick up times and use a booking system as it's like a cattle market as people just push past you, no matter how long you had been waiting there. You could be first there but last on. Be ready to push and shove your way on board. On the return journey you need to be prepared to wait past your pick up times as for 7 days straight the bus turned anything from 15-25 minutes late, with no explanation. This was a little frustrating and sometimes the budget was full before it got you. The surrounding area is great for supermarkets, food and shopping at lower prices than the hotel. There is a buffet pizza place, hooters and dominos. All within 10 minute walk from the hotel. You can save a lot of money by just walking down the road. Overall a nice hotel. Enjoyable stay and would return if we ever went back to Lake Buena Vista. Collapse

We stayed at the Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista for 10 nights during our Walt Disney World vacation. We decided on a Good Neighbour Hotel because this hotel had everything we needed and was within our budget. Overall, great budget hotel. It was clean, beds were comfortable and I LOVE that all rooms come with microwaves and refrigerators. Very handy because my fiance and I bought groceries to have in the room to avoid spending tonnes of money on food at the parks. The hotel staff was very helpful and the "Tourism & Transportation" desk was great in organizing taxis and providing park maps and information. On our second last day our air conditioner was acting up and we left for the day thinking we would deal with it when we got back. Came back from our day at the park to see a brand new air conditioner in the room! The service here was truly fantastic. We did not eat at either of the restaurants there but they were always busy so I gotta assume they were good! The little convenience store was really handy when we ran out of basic groceries or wanted a little snack. The hotel was in a great location, within walking distance to so many restaurants. Across the freeway was also some outlet shopping (the hotel had a shuttle to take guests there) and a decent grocery store within walking distance. The only con that we experienced at this hotel was the shuttle service to the parks. The times were very random and the buses were ALWAYS late. I think once it was on time and that was the first one in the morning to Magic Kingdom. And since there was no return shuttle from Magic Kingdom until 11:30pm, we often would take a Disney shuttle to Disney Springs and then walk the 45 minutes back to the hotel. Made it very difficult to make dinner reservations on time and I would recommend just renting a car to be able to just go on your own time. We did do a lot of walking this trip, that's for sure! Overall, great experience and a very magical vacation =) loved every minute!! Collapse

Nice tidy hotel Free continental breakfast Excellent wifi Nice friendly staff Rooms a bit dated but similar to all the others in this class Quiet on a night for sleeping Lots of parking and security Great location for visiting Disney. Uber taxi costs range between 6&12 dollars to the Disney parks so it's excellent. Minor issue - the free hotel transport to the parks should be more frequent No problem recommending this hotel, we would definitely stay again. Collapse
