Buena Vista Suites- Huge 20 hour Deal Today!!

I've been watching this hotel's website and today they started a 20 hour sale! Every 2nd night for $20!! I got 6 nights for a little over $400 for all of us!! Plus free breakfast!
I've never stayed off-site before, but with no free dining on the horizon, this great deal put me over the edge!
Probably couldn't have even camped for this cheap!!

I'm looking for off site as well. Is there anything great about this place? We would like a nice pool and something inside Disney not outside.

Thanks for any opinions

I just wanted a hotel with suites and a breakfast that was close to Disney and this fit the bill. It's very close to Downtown Disney.
It does have a pool.
It's hard to find a place that we will all fit in at a low price. We really only go to the hotel to sleep, so I figured this would work to try off-site.
I didn't want to go the condo/townhome route because I still want housekeeping!

It is a nice, clean, resort. Usually plenty of parking and super convenient without much traffic to get onto Disney property. The breakfast is nice, nothing spectacular, but decent for free. There is also a CVS right across the street and Walmart right down the road which is really convenient. We like the hotel a lot.

That being said, and to adjust expectations, the pool is nothing special. Its small and basically a lot of concrete. The hotel is not very large, so there are not a lot of amenities. It definitely is not a "resort" or have that feel. There is not much landscaping around it either so it has a very concrete feel to it. The rooms are also not huge. It is nice to have the seperate areas, but if you are used to a true suite/1 bedroom this is not what you get here. Definitely more space than a traditional hotel room and great if you need to seperate for sleeping, but not very spacious. We love staying here for a few days (usually before a DVC stay) but it would be very tight for a longer trip. I always recommend this hotel though as we do really enjoy it, but I just wanted to make sure expectations are correct.

Thanks. With 3 kids, we are in the same boat.


Sadly, my dates aren't included in this but I did see a rate of 90 so I am going to look into it. As long as any hotel I stay in is comparable to a Hampton inn I am happy!

It's on buenavistasuites.com Or you can call them and tell them you want to book the one day special.
We have always squeezed into the cheapest place available, so I'm really not worried about space. We literally go to the park from opening until bed.

I called and I booked. No deposit, just cc guarantee.
7 days = 478.00 and taxes.
You can purchase tix and rental car on site.
FREE Buffet breakfast.
Every Other day is 20.00. Works for me. Allows me to go to Disney TWICE this yr.
NICE DEAL.
ACT FAST.

I saw the available dates. My dates are available. It's just for 8 nights I was still around $900 with tax, no where near the great rates some of you are getting. I was wondering if it was due to the dates I was checking for or some error. Thanks. I wanted to check with your dates and see if I got the same price. That way I would know if it was something I was doing wrong.

I wasn't happy with my rates ONLINE! so I called.
I talked to a FRANCEE.
It might be worth a call, if you have the time.
