Got up a little later today and had a free buffet breakfast at the hotel. Had to fight for a table coz there was heaps of people there being the weekend.

Last day on the bus today and we are off to Orlando. Because Tammy left the tour yesterday, I got her room last night, and I have two seats to myself today. The lady that I was sharing with was nice enough but we had absolutely nothing in common so it was nice to have a room on my own.


We sped through Jacksonville without stopping. …

As far south as we go

This is it folks, as far South as Josh and I will be travelling!

This is another two day blog post, summing up what we've been up to since we hit Florida yesterday. We left Savannah (eventually, big delays with getting bags on the bus) which was probably my favourite place so far and headed south into Florida.

Our lunch was …

    close to disneyland, but thats about it

    We stayed at the Courtyard for 2 nights.

    The rooms are spacious, but I do agree they are dated. The showers are ridiculously dark if you draw the shower curtain. The toiletries are lovely and the beds are large, comfortable and have plenty of pillow. The hallways are uncomfortably warm and sticky. Wifi through the whole hotel, a computer room downstairs and a pool and fitness area.

    There is a concierge, but they are only in Courtyard during certain hours (i believe AM to midday). There are concierges at the other hotels though if you need something... There are two other Marriotts on the property, and there are a couple of restaurants and a Starbucks on site. The luxury shopping outlet is an easy 20 minute walk down the road (you pass other shops and restaurants on the way) or there are always shuttles on site to take you (a taxi is cheaper than the shuttle).

    We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour group and therefore had no say in where we stayed. This hotel is appropriate if you want to go to Disney, and thats about it. Universal, Seaworld, Wet and Wild, its all down the freeway. This hotel only offers free shuttles to Disney (although you do have to book a seat on the shuttle and pre determine what time you will get on a return shuttle - not always helpful when kids are concerned). If you want to go to any other park then you have to take a taxi (about $30) or see if concierge can organise a shuttle for you ($16-$20 per person).

    OR

    you can catch the number 8 bus from the luxury shopping outlet for $2 one way or $4.50 all day. It will get you within a reasonable distance to ALL of the other parks in about 1/2 an hour. The bus runs every 15ish minutes Mon-Fi or every 30 minutes on weekends. Stops are every couple of hundred metres.

    I would only recommend this hotel if you are going to Disney, and then there are probably more convenient, cheaper options.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard Orlando Lake Buena Vista in the Marriott Village

    Excellent Value and location

    from

    As the reviewer from Atlanta wrote on 5/1/04 this review is for the Marriott Courtyard at the Marriott Village, LBV.

    Great Value & Very Convenient

    from

    Stayed for two days as part of a Southwest Airlines vacation package. Clean rooms - friendly, helpful staff - convenient services (fee-based internet access, fast food available for quick bite, Mears Transportation on-site) - very close to numerous restaurants. Would definitely stay again.

    Great Home-base for Orlando attractions

    from

    First, I think there may be some confusion in which hotel people are reviewing. There is the Courtyard at WDW and then there is the Courtyard at Marriott Village in Lake Buena Vista. For instance, the shuttle to the parks from Marriott Village is $5 per person roundtrip, however it is free from the WDW property. Also there was no manager buffet at the Marriott Village location (at least not when we stayed over New Years)

    Great Hotel Great Location.

    from

    This Marriot Complex was a real suprise, large clean rooms, quiet, secure complex, selection of restauants, and fast food in or adjoining complex, close to Orlando premium outlet complex, and short trip to down town Disney. Great inet price as well, comp' cont' breakfast better than most.

    I'm confused?

    from

    Although this hotel was a "bang for my very limited bucks," there were many problems. My hotel room had a very disturbing odor (and it was non-smoking), there were some sort of fungi in the ceiling, the pictures of the pool that are provided by internet sites are misleading, the service from housekeeping was unsatisfactory......the list can go on...HOWEVER....the breakfast buffet was awesome, the free shuttle buses to area theme parks and Downtown Disney was a great help...and the free beer/soda and nachos everyday b/w 5pm and 6pm was a life saver. Well, for the price my family paid for our week stay, I guess I shouldn't have expected it to be th Ritz. Good Lucki.

    Courtyard Marriott Village good value

    from

    We stayed here during Easter 2003. I was happy with our stay here. We were able to use Marriott points during such a busy time. The indoor outdoor pool was very nice. My teenagers especially liked being able to order Pizza Hut for room service from one of the adjacent Marriott hotels. I would say it is a convenient location to drive to both Disney World and Universal Parks.

    First Class Fairfield

    from

    just returned from 14 days in orlando, staying at the Fairfield Inn Little Lake Bryan. Lovely hotel. spacious rooms. friendly and helpfull staff. Very clean and tidy. would definately go again.

    A Good Value

    from

    I just returned June 3 from a one-night stay at the Courtyard by Marriott. It was our first stop before spending 4 nights at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. After a 7 hour drive I was pleased with the cleanliness and size of the room. My children, ages 5 and 8, loved the pool and splash area. It was quite convenient to have so many dining options within walking distance to the hotel since none of us wanted to get back in the car. For a $75 per night room rate, the hotel was a steal. It was close to Disney where we went early the next morning. If you're looking for a place to stay following a long drive and don't feel like paying the "Disney" price at one of their properties, this is a sure bet.

    Average stay

    from

    We recently stayed at the Marriott Courtyard in Lake Buena Vista. It is near the Disney Marketplace. The hotel has tried to update but still needs some upgrading of the bathrooms to do. The sinks etc are so old! One plus staying at this hotel was the managers reception in the evening offering free beer/wine etc. We have always stayed on Disney Property and I would go back to one of their hotels for our next visit.

    A Jewel

    from

    This is an excellent property for vacationers who want convenience to all attractions, an excellent pool, very good security and very good facility condition, at a reasonable price. I have traveled an average of 50 - 80 nights per year for the past 12 years and have stayed in properties ranging from Hampton Inns through Ritz Carltons.Most families with children (or golfers) going to Orlando want a clean property in good condition with a helpful staff. This is definitely it. 8 minutes to Magic Kingdom, 9 minutes to Universal Studios, 5 minutes to I-Drive. Walking distance to Bahama Breeze and Landry's seafood, in addition to a nice food court. This property is secured (with gates) along with two other Mariott hotels - a Fairfield Inn and a Mariott Suites. You don't need anything else unless you decide to stay On Property at WDW or Universal and for $99 a night - it can't be beat!!
