I have a trip planned for July for 2 adults & 1 6-year old for 16 days. Originally I was going to stay at Pop Century for the 16 days but it is just too costly. I am planning on changing my reservation to 6 days at Pop Century and stay offsite for the other 10 days. Since I don't drive I need a hotel that is close to Disney that has free transportation. I have been searching the web for days and finally came across the Comfort Inn Lake Buena Vista. The price I can get per night with the Magic Card is $49.00. I also get 15% off at their restaurant with the Magic Card. I probably won't be eating there, but on a lazy day it's good. My question is concerning this hotel. Since the price is that low, I am a little leery about staying there. Has anyone been there recently that can give me an honest opinion? I don't expect much, but a clean room, a clean and pretty comfortable bed, clean towels and a nice pool for my nephew to spend some time swimming since he loves the water. Noise from a highway or noise from kids having a good time doesn't bother me at all since I live in New York City and that's a normal part of the day living in a city. There are sounds 24 hours a day. There is the added benefit of the free continental breakfast, but whatever it is, it's free. If we want to donut or something as a snack that's great, because we usually eat cereal and will eat it in the room and I love that morning coffee. There is also the added benefit of the microwave and mini fridge which is a big plus since I had planned on paying for a fridge at Pop Century for the 16 days, so right there I will be saving some money. I really need to know if this place is clean and not too run down. I don't want my nephew getting cut on some cracked tiles in the bathroom or something like that. We will be at the parks most of the time since we have 10 day MYW tickets with the waterpark and more option. I know that hotel shuttles aren't good, but Comfort Inn Lake Buena Vista has a schedule on their website and it shows 5 times for buses going to Magic Kingdom and 5 coming back from there. There is 1 bus going back after 12:00 midnight, so there is enough time to see the fireworks. They go to all the parks, but they don't have too many times for the other parks, going and coming. They also provide free transportation to SeaWorld and Universal. One other plus, during my searching the web I found that a cab from Epot to 8442 Palm Parkway (Comfort Inn) is about $12.00) which isn't bad if I can't make it back on 1 of their buses. I will just have to get myself to Epcot, no matter what park I am in on a night that we are staying late for the fireworks. I would also like to know if there are any restaurants within walking distance since I don't drive? There are so many little things that are convincing me to book it, especially budget-wise, but I am not sure about the quality of this place. I would really love to stay at Pop for the 16 days, but staying at the Comfort Inn I am saving approximately $400 for the hotel alone, and that is with the AAA rate of $93.70 (including tax) for Pop and the Magic Card rate of $53.46 (including tax) for Comfort Inn. Any info will help me decide what to do. Staying offsite will cut down my expenses and I rather use the money on eating out at nicer restaurant occasionally and buying my nephew his Disney toys and doing things that are fun. Sorry to be so longwinded. Thank you.
