Historical Traveler Reviews Fairfield Inn & Suites Orlando Lake Buena Vista
Great hotel for the price
This is a great hotel for the price. We stayed in this hotel in January 2004, for $39 a night. The rooms were large and clean. The hotel offers a very nice free breakfast, and is in a very good location. It is within walking distance to many good restaurants. The only complaint I have about the hotel is that you could plainly hear guests talking in the hallway from inside your room. The doors into the hallway are very thin and need more insulation in them. The pool was small for the size of hotel. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.
Great little hotel for the budget minded
We found the room on the travelzoo website for $39 and after reading the reviews in trip advisor decided it was the place to stay. We stayed in a King room which also had a fold out sofa bed. We paid $10 more a night and got one more roll-away bed which made the sleeping arrangements more comfortable for 4. The staff was great and when we checked in we had free hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies, which hit the spot after a day of flying. The room was very clean, nice and roomy. Breakfast was really good, the kids made waffles and had juice and fruit. We didn't use the free shuttle to Disney because we had a rental car, but the entrance to the parks and Downtown Disney was only about 1/2 mile away from the hotel. We used the Kinkos next door to check email a few times. The kids went swimming in the evenings in the heated pool, even though the temp outside was in the 60's. Overall a great deal for the budget minded family!!!
Comfortable room, friendly staff, good location.
We arrived at Country Inn after a VERY long day in and out of airports.
The reception staff was very friendly and did everything they could to make check in painless and quick. We were in our room in less than 5 mins after arriving to the hotel. The only problem was getting to the hotel (the car rental company gave us a really bad map and we got lost). Make sure you have good directions before you attempt to find the place. The room was very comfortable and clean for a budget hotel.
I mean if you are expecting the Ritz you will probably not be happy with this choice. However, if you are looking for a hotel in a nice quite location... that is close to pretty much anything you want... a nice, friendly staff... and a clean comfortable room... then I suggest the Country Inn. The only thing that we really didn't like about this hotel was the "free" breakfast. The breakfast that they offer really isn't that great, kind of bland and not much to pick from. There are however better choices across the street for breakfast. Oh... one more thing, the people at the desk in the lobby trying to get you to do time shares... it may seem like a really good deal. If you are going to do a time share presentation and waste a good part of your morning (we did because it was raining) I suggest going across the street, there is a little booth next to bargain world... we did the presentation and walked away with $100 cash. Anyway, overall the hotel was nice for the money spent, I would have no problem sending my family/friends here.
Great location for restaurants
Only 20 minutes from the Disney World, this is a great place to stay. We received a very friendly reception when checking in. The rooms are in good condition and were clean. It s a fantastic location having 7 to 9 restaurants and all an easy walk. There is Tony Roma s, Sizzler, Giordano Pizza and China Buffet on the same block and across the street (and you can cross over) there is Chili s, Joe s Crab Shack and Romano s Mac Grill and Olive Garden.
Basic but clean and nice hotel
A nice hotel of a good standard. Nothing spectacular but clean and in an amazing location for Disney fans. Some of the staff were rude and avoid the 'discount' theme park tickets lady who will lie to you to try and get you to buy timeshare.
Also nice free hot choc and breakfast.
Loved the Hotel
great Hotel, clean and bright. Quiet location with great staff.
The room was clean, great continental Buffet. The pool although was small.
Would definetely stay again for $59.00/night
Exceeded my expectations
I just returned home from my 10 night stay at this hotel (Sept.09-19/03) and I couldn't have been more pleased with my acccomodations. I too, waited and watched for the rates to drop on the Country Inns and Suites official website and ended up paying only $49 night. The hotel itself was extremely clean while the staff was friendly and very helpful. My room was clean and spacious with a fridge and microwave oven. (standard in every room) I didn't want to stay on the Disney properties because I like having more alternate choices for dining, shopping, groceries etc. and this hotel was perfect for that.
Within 5 minutes walking distance was a vast array of family style restaurants, a Winn Dixie supermarket and a Walgreen's drugstore. This hotel has a free scheduled shuttle to the Disney parks that leaves at 3 different times in the morning and returns at 3 different times in the evening. That doesn't work for someone who wants to return to the hotel to freshen up and return to the parks, but I found that my days at the park flew by and before I knew it, it was time to catch the shuttle.
Also provided is a free shuttle to the Lake Buena Vista factory outlet stores. Bottom line for me was that this hotel far exceeded my expectations for quality and convenience and I will be staying there again when I return to Orlando in the future.
Great swimming pool
We stayed here in October 2002 and loved it. the suite was a perfect size for a family. The couch opened to a nice bed and the bedroom had a king size bed. It has a fridge and microwave and 2 TV's which was great for thekids. Our room overlooked the pool which was great. Pool had a slide and zero entry wchich the kids loved. Hot tub was nice too. We never used the hotel bus to get to the attractions but they were easy to find in our car. Also not too far away were plenty of places to eat to choose from and this hotel had a free breakfast-cereal, juice,muffins etc. The hotel is also pretty new so it was in great shape. Would go again., the price was great.
We found this hotel after much research on trip advisor. Great rate found at the Country Inn web site. We checked in with no problems, room was originally booked for non smoking, we were given a smoking. Had no problem changing the room. The lady at the front desk was very helpful.
The room was clean, fridge was not very cold, but okay for drinks. Nice to have the microwave in the room. Beds were okay, average I would say.
The room was nice with 3 kids because we had another vanity outside of the bathroom as well as a full length mirror. All of which helped getting dressed in the morning. We stayed for 3 nights. The second night we were awaken by sounds from another couple next door who obviously didn't travel with children. So, expect the walls to be somewhat thin. Didn't have that problem again. Would stay here again because of the value and wonderful breakfast. For Disney, when you are never in your room but to shower and sleep, it was perfect and left us money to spend elsewhere!
Highly recommend this hotel
Great hotel. Very clean room with microwave and fridge, extremely courteous staff and great breakfast all at a very reasonable value. Remember to check their local website frequently, they often post great room rate for off season stay. We got an extraordinary good deal via their website, $39 per night, for our stay. Location is great, extremely convenient. Hotel is close to Disney World, Orlando Premium Outlets, grocery store and major highway. Most important of all, hotel is right next to Kinkos! My boyfriend and I just hopped next door to check email every night! Will definitely return to this hotel if I go to Orlando again.

Finally out of bed at 0930am today and off to the Premium Outlets, but not before having some breakfast. Perhaps we will find a Starbucks today, I hope so, because this other coffee is very ordinary to say the least Hopped a taxi to the outlets about 20 min drive and having made the first of many purchases at Timberland I was off in search of Starbucks...yes mission successful, back to shopping. ...
