just returned from a weeklong stay at the buena vista suites (june 8-14). have to say it was a great value for the money. at a price of $110/night tax included, we had plenty of room for our family of 7 (me, dw, dd-13, dd-9, ds-8, ds-3, dd-infant). the free breakfast left a little to be desired at times, but after the first morning there we knew what and what not to eat. avoid the eggs and the waffles (like bricks) on the buffet line. instead order your eggs fresh from the cooks on the line. much better eggs and you get them made however you want them. excellent grits, ham, and bacon. the breakfast was never too crowded and we were there typically anytime between 8-930 each day. suites were roomy enough. especially during the 3 nights when d fil and d mil were there and had a suite next door and let ds-8 sleep in their living room. rooms have 2 queen beds or 1 king and a couch in l.r. that makes into a full bed. service at the front desk was so-so, depending on who you were dealing with. pool was nice, but the water was a bit too warm at times. of course tropical storm alberto kept us from swimming more than a few times though. exercise room was very outdated. so i had to make due with what they had. i guess that's pretty typical at most hotels though. however, when walking through the boardwalk later in the week i did get a look at their exercise room and it was pretty impressive looking. location was great, it was quiet and there was only one other hotel in direct vicinity (caribe royale suites next door). we were able to turn right out of our parking lot and in 2 minutes be on wdw property. never had any trafffic issues at all, probably better off than if we had stayed at one of the all stars or pop when it comes to transportation. overall very good experience. would recommend it if one is looking to save money and needs extra space (large family). however, next time we will be staying on property, either the poly, boardwalk, beach club, or okw.
