Since it opened in late 2000, Marriott Village at Lake Buena Vista has been a favorite for budget-minded families. The Village encompasses three hotel properties, contained in a single gated complex. Each Walt Disney World Good Neighbor hotel holds special appeal for families. SpringHill Suites Orlando is ideal for family vacations offering spacious guest rooms and suites, a children’s game room, complimentary continental breakfast and many recreational activities nearby. Pool-hopping is fun for kids — each hotel has its own, and two contain splash pads. A shared food court offers a number of quick-service options. Roundtrip bus transportation to Walt Disney World Resort theme parks is available for $7 per person. You may also want to look at the other two properties in this complex: Courtyard Orlando Lake Buena Vista and Fairfield Inn Orlando Lake Buena Vista.
SpringHill Suites By Marriott is one of Marriott’s lower price-point hotels for families to enjoy the Marriott comfort on a budget. More than 280 hotels worldwide provide all-suite accommodations and free hot breakfast daily. Read more about SpringHill Suites.

This is a great hotel the beds are comfortable, staff is great the pool is nice and clean. Even the restaurant is wonderful. They even have shuttle to the parks and have a ticket counter in the hotel. My only problem why you have to pay $15 per day for parking that is not valet, and if you come in late it's nowhere to park.. I paid $500 for the room along for 4 nights and you still charging me for parking, I think that's horrible.

I don't write many reviews, as most of my hotel stays range between "average and expected." I just wrote a very similar review for a hotel in Pembroke Pines (Miami), and felt compelled to write another, as the service I received at this property was also exceptional. The hotel itself is a Marriott Cat 4 property (with an average rating of 4.1); the other 2 surrounding Marriott properties average a slightly higher 4.3 - but the difference is negligible, and the properties offer reciprocal amenities (you can use all facilities at all 3 hotels). A special recognition to William (check-in, and a very nice upgrade to a Studio King) and Scott (offered a 2 p.m. check-out with no issues, despite hotel being at, or very near, 100% capacity); Spring Break in Florida is Nuckin Futs! Breakfast buffet was great (and they offer an easy "traffic-light" color code to tell you the best time range to avoid the biggest crowd. 0630-0745 is Green; 0745-0830 is Yellow; 0830-0930 (I hope you guessed Red). I went at 0730 and there were about 40 people down there, but the space is large, plenty of food (both sides the same with 2 large pans of eggs, 1 pan Turkey sausage, 1 pan Pork sausage, fruit and yogurt on each side). Plenty of seating and the buffet area and tables were very clean. Large coffee station outside the restaurant (in lobby), and more inside for breakfast. Any reasonable, well-traveled person can't ask for more. As stated in my Fairfield Inn (Miami) review, as an elite member for both Marriott and Hilton, I've certainly come to enjoy (and expect) certain amenities and treatment; but if you're the type of person that complains about every little detail, and expects to be pampered like you're at the Ritz-Carlton (when you're paying for a Courtyard), then either stop traveling or re-evaluate your priorities in life...
