    We stayed at the Hawthorne Suites on Palm Parkway. It was a nice clean room with fridge, breakfast in the morning and a nice little pool. The price was pretty good too! :)

    When you say low-priced, how much do you want to spend? A two-bedroom suite at Staybridege Suites Lake Buena Vista will give you a full kitchen, plenty of beds and a sofa bed, so nobody would have to sleep on the floor. If you look around, you might be able to get a condo in Windsor Hills or Crestwynd Bay for under $100 a night, depending on what time of year you're going. There are plenty of great deals!

    We have stayed at the Quality Suites Lake Buena Vista for around $70 a night and it sleeps 6 with a full kitchen. (No oven) You also get a FREE hot breakfast buffet in the resort.

    Also if you Google "Villa direct" vacation rental homes you can rent a 4 bedroom vacation rental home with private pool, game room, full kitchen (it is a house) for less than $100 a night.

    If you go to hotels.com and search in Kissimmee, there are a lot of reasonable hotels. We always stay at Maingate Lakeside, it's only about $40-$50/night (the site sometimes says $33/night, but you have to factor in the 7.50/night surcharge). It's clean, has a fridge, and does the job of a place to lay your head at night! They also have a free shuttle service to Disney if you're interested in that. If you want to be to Disney World at rope drop it's best to take a cab for about $7 though...

    Check the mousesavers website for discounts on the Doubletree Suites in DTD. They sometimes run specials with rooms as low as $89. We stayed there in November. Their standard room sleeps 6 with two double beds in the bedroom and a pull out couch in the living room. There is a kitchenette with a small fridge, sink and microwave. I would stay here again.:)

    Go to TripAdvisor

    You can search for hotels that are available for you dates, select price range, and amenities. I've been using TripAdvisor for about 7 years and have always found the reviews here very accurate and helpful.

    There are a couple of Home Wood Suites in the area. They offer a full kitchen as well. Great properties for family's.

    A property in the $100 range is an excellent rate for your size family (remember you have 6 ppl). You have to remember where you are (Orlando/Disney). You also need to consider what your are getting for the rate you pay.

    the taxes for the hotels are 12% - so if you must stay under $100 - then the most you can pay is $88 - if the hotel has fees (which many do) then even less.

    You can get a hotel room for $40-$50/night if you use PriceLine, but you won't necessarily have a fridge. If I were going to pay more than $60/nt, I would go for a townhome/condo instead. The one I stayed at in Emerald Island(very close to Disney property) is only $560(tax, cleaning, everything included) for 8 nights for 3 bedrooms, full kitchen, and a pool right across the parking lot.

    Or a 1 bedroom at Windsor Palms

    Actually, the OP could pay as much as $89.28 + 12% tax and still be $100 or less. Sorry, I'm a recovery mathematician.

    I second this....

    Check on Mousesavers...there are deals for Buena Vista Suites. There is one that you pay the Mousesavers rate for the first night and then the next night is $69.

    They do not charge a resort fee or for parking.

    I checked the mousesavers link for my dates, and the price was $109. per night. I just booked it on lastminutetravel.com for $90 per night and included the rental car. The total, including taxes and rental car came out to almost exactly what the mousesavers rate was for just the hotel.

    Going for 9 days in June 2013 w/ hubby and 10 year old.

    Looking for an affordable suite in a resort with a nice pool.

    Which has the nicest pool to offer, and which has the easiest access to Disney?

    Thanks so much!
