Accommodations Review:

Standard room has 2 double beds. 1st stay was 6 years earlier with pool view and enjoyed staying. This time out had ground floor room in the building behind the reservation/restaurant building, smoking room (non-smoker, hated it). It was a good value. Maid service was good. Parking was tight. Just enough spaces for guests. It was adequate if all you're interested in is a place to bathe and sleep. No fridge, but did provide coffee maker and blow dryer.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

$34.16 before tax

# of Restaurants/Lounges:


Restaurant/Lounge Review:

Pool side Tiki bar was ok. The bartender is friendly as is much of the staff. Haven't eaten in the restaurant since '95. Food was average then. Cafeteria and restaurant on site. Pool side view is the best rooms. Close to other fun attractions and shopping. Not a bad place to stay for the money.

Amenities / Facilities / Activities Available:

Pool, Playground, Hair Dryer, Laundry, In-room Safe, Pets Permitted, Room Service, Handicapped Accessible Rooms Available, Non-Smoking Rooms Available, Smoke Detectors.

Pool Description/Comments:

Pool had 4' minimum depth. No shallow end for small children. Playground is in poor repair with plenty of opportunities to get splinters. However, the white beach sand is deep and fun for little kids to play in.

Other Comments:

Going back to WDW Jan 2002 and will try staying in Comfort Inn Lake Buena Vista. Haven't read any good reviews about it either. But I am not interested in decor, just snore!
