Guest Recommendations
Verified Guest from Parrish, FL US rated Holiday Inn Resort Lake Buena Vista 10 out of 10 on June 18, 2006
"Rooms were slightly "smelly" ~ musty? not sure what it was but got use to it. The kitchenettes and room set up in the kids suite was very nice and worth the money for the amount of time spent in your room anyway. Outside areas were well kept. Nice restuarants all around with lots of choices and plenty of activities for the kids. Take the time to look around this hotel...right down the street is a huge name brand outlet mall (maybe a mile~seen it on our morning walk) and every direction is something new to explore!"
