The worst place I have ever been...Motel6 felt like a first class hotel compared to this one. The staff was very uncaring and rude. The girl at the front desk would not look at you and would give short and rude answers. When we got to our room at first it smelled like mold, the counter was set with two broken glasses, the refrigerator was dirty and it had curly hair in there!! They did not have enough towels in the bathroom , and I only noticed that when I was already in the shower (which by the way was spraying water everywhere and it had a loud piercing noise coming out of it, I couldn't wait to get out of the shower..it gave me a head ache!) my husband called the front desk they told him someone would bring one right away... well , no one showed up so my husband had to walk all the way to the front desk, just to be told she did not have any ...well that was around 4pm.. we left for dinner came back and still no towel...The nightmare was not over yet.. the sofa bed was broken so we had to put the very thin mattress on the floor... the blankets were in TERRIBLE condition,(I should have taken a picture of it!) homeless shelters would be offended with those blankets!! it was so thin it had several huge holes in it...not to mention the terrible smell!!! We didn't dare ask for another one...needless to say we canceled the remaining nights and could not wait until morning so we could get out of there!!!
By the way, it should be illegal for them to charge a "resort fee" the sand around the playground was full of litter... the deck was in serious need of repair with rotten and missing boards... the lake was a puddle of green water, infested with insects and it smelled really bad...at check out we tried to kindly explain our dissatisfaction with the manager but the way she reacted, she was sick of listening to that same story so she paid no attention to it...that's SAD!

Just got back from our Florida Vacation and we could not ask for a better hotel to stay at with the budget we were working with for our trip. We booked this hotel through AAA after reviewing other hotels in the area. We felt that this hotel offered us with everything that we would want during our 7 day stay in Kissimmee.

We were weary in the begining after reading other reviews about the hotel, originally called the MainStay Suites then a name change to the Lakeside Suites Hotel and then changed to the Lake Suite Hotel.

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and checked in fairly quickly. They had our reservations all set and our room was ready and we were given the correct room. We were given a map of the grounds and the desk clerk showed us where our room was, room #904 an excutive suite. Also we were informed of the times that the Continental breakfast was served and the hours the pool/jacuzzi was available.

We found our room very easily. The room was clean and neat. Did a once over on the room before settling in to make sure everything worked. I had found a spoon in the drain of the sink when I had turned the garbage disposal on and had reported that to the front desk and they came and cleaned that out for me and replaced a burnt out bulb. The house keeping staff was very nice and was there everyday, came back to a clean room everyday. Everyone there was polite and cheery.

The location was great. There was a Super Target across the street from the hotel and a Super Wal-Mart down the street. Plenty of places to eat at within either a short walk or drive. Close to Disney and Sea World at most a 1/2 hour drive. They have great deals for tickets to the parks and a shuttle to and from the parks, we decided to drive to them ourselves b/c some of the drop off/pick up times were too early when the parks were open late.

Overall we would highly recommend this hotel to anyone that is looking for a great place to just relax at a great price. We are in our mid 20s but there were families there with young kids and other couples without children there.

My husband and I had one room and my sister and her family of 4 were in another room. We experienced poor housekeeping. The rooms need updating. The carpet was dirty, the bathroom need major renovation. The wooden ramp and porch leading to our room was rotten and had visible cracked and broken boards. The entry door was loose and could be shook 1-2 inches, it would not shut or lock with a tight fit. We pushed a large sofa chair in front of it each night for added security. The sliding door to the balcony was broken. The room my sister was in had a musty smell. The place just need major renovations.

went to kissimme to go to old town for the weekend. went on a bad weekend, it was february, daytona 500 weekend. didn't know the over flow came here. motel staff from various motels we tried to get a room at said daytona did not have enough hotel/motel rooms.after looking for over an hour found the buena vista. the manager Joseph Csokasy was very friendly. his rooms were as high as anyone elses but he didn't make you feel like "take it or leave it". his whole demeanor was courtious and professional. he helped a bad weekend turn pretty good.
will see him again. john

We have stayed at Buena Vista many times. It is a little rough from the outside, but the pool is tropical paradise! It is a not frills, clean, quiet and friendly place. No complaints!!!
