Guest Recommendations
Kathryn from Downingtown, PA US rated Buena Vista Suites 8 out of 10 on November 21, 2006
"Room was nice and clean and very well maintained. For the price thought internet service should have been included in room, but was additional 9.99 a day. Pets are limited to 2 per room. Booked a 2 queen suite but when arrived was told had to get another room because i had 4 small dogs. So cost me an extra 109.00 a night."
Thomas from Homestead, FL US rated Buena Vista Suites 9 out of 10 on November 01, 2006
"The rooms were very clean and had great fluffy towels. Staff very informative and eager to help make our stay and visits to Disney fun and effortless. Pool and hot tub also helped after a long day on our feet. Includes breakfast which saves lots of money; the eggs, fruit with yogurt and toast were fine for me for breakfast."

"This hotel was a good deal for the money. We stayed 3 nights with our 2 six year old grandsons, we had a queen suite and it worked out really well the boys had their own room to watch tv and play in. The only complaint was that the air didn't work the best but it wasn't unbearable."
Tim from Oceano, CA US rated Buena Vista Suites 9 out of 10 on June 15, 2005
"Only problem was the toilet took a long time to fill back up with water, didn't report, didn't really have time to. Suite 703"
Connie from Miramar, FL US rated Buena Vista Suites 9 out of 10 on January 01, 2004
"The door lock failed half way through our visit. Made it inconveniant to come and go that evening and for breakfast. They tried to fix it that night, but needed to replace it the next day. The thermostat was really loose, hanging by its wires. But the A/C still worked ok. The breakfast buffet was good, but wished they didn't start it later on the weekends. Most people wanted to and get to Disney. Therefore long lines when it opened. Check-in took forever, with no explanation. Most of the employees that we asked questions of were very good."
Verified Guest from Beavercreek, OH US rated Buena Vista Suites 5 out of 10 on December 30, 2003
"Room was small for the price. The shower was poor and water pressure horrible. Toilet overflowed first time it was used."

"I was disappointed that I wasn't offered a choice of smoking vs. non-smoking rooms and that I was in a room obviously used by smokers. The housekeeping services in the room were below par with what I have experienced on other business trips."
Dave from Kingston, ON CA rated Buena Vista Suites 6 out of 10 on November 20, 2003
