Bang for your Buck -- Shout-out to Jill
Reviewed 20 September, 2021
My boyfriend and I are not ones to spend a lot of money on hotels wherever we go.
** Disclaimer: we're not picky or high maintenance when it comes to hotels**
We try to look for great deals that would make our stay worth it. Here are some concise perks:
-Offer shuttle service, the time we stayed, to Hollywood Studios. At that park, Disney offered shuttle service to their other parks. The hotel also offered a shuttle service to Universal Studios and Sea World. So if you're traveling from out of state and are not looking to rent a car, this hotel would be a great choice.
- They offer a "Wine and Dine" option. Meaning they offer complimentary breakfast every morning of your stay. Please keep in mind that this is a different package from the typical normal room reservation but I highly recommend it.
**I want to throw a huge shout-out to Jill that worked in the breakfast area. She made our mornings memorable and exceeded our expectations with her amazing customer service. She was so nice and already knew our preferred drinks by the second day making our stay special. Thank you, Jill!!
The only minor inconvenience we encountered would be the charges at the end of our stay. They sent me an invoice with a remaining balance after I had already paid the stay in advance a couple of weeks prior to our stay. I called to confirm the pricing and reservation twice before we arrived. They wanted to charge me more per night. I had to politely dispute this with the front desk and they took care of it in a matter of minutes.
All in all, you can get the most bang for your buck with this hotel. From Las Vegas to Orlando, planning is a huge part of traveling so if you're looking to go to any of the parks this is the hotel for you.
Another relaxing Stay!!!

We just returned from another great weekend. (Room 3412)
We have been staying here for over 15 years. Granted, that this is an older hotel and rooms are dated, but I tend to focus on the positive.
Rates are great compared to other hotels on Palm Parkway.
NO Resort fee.
NO Parking fee.
Location: 15min drive to Disney Springs.
On this trip we took the time to enjoy the pool. We noticed they have new lounge chairs. Very enjoyable after a long day at the parks.
We also played in the arcade which was fun. The quick mart has all kinds of snacks and we liked getting a Starbucks Coffee first thing in the morning.
We saw Security walking each floor and also on carts around the property.
They have a breakfast buffet and in the evenings have a bar with food. We did not eat there this time around, but it is a good option.
Our room was comfortable as always.
Bed sheets, pillows, and towels are all super white and clean!!!!!!
Bathroom was clean. Fridge, Microwave, TV, all is great condition.
A/C was super cold which was great in this HOT Florida weather.
We highly recommend The Rosen LBV.
It is not the Four Seasons, but offers a ton for the budget minded traveler.
Used to love it

I used to love this place for its convenience, low rates and proximity to Disney, IDrive and Universal.
We stayed during the pandemic when it reopened and it was fine. Staying recently we were disappointed - dirty in places in the room(dark liquid substance on the wall by the toilet, dirty mirror and dusty in places), cockroaches (which we’ve never seen anytime staying over 30yrs) and a really nasty computer chair which should be thrown out.
I know the staffing are not back to full strength, but this is the time to deep clean each room and not let dogs stay (the rooms stink after). I’m surprised by how the standards went down.
I did speak to the front desk and showed them pictures upon check out. Not sure we will be back sadly.
The worst cleaning

Bad service and horrible housekeeping. Look for another hotel.
We ask for an extra bed, it took them 4 and a half hours to bring it, obviusly everyone was already sleeping. We call several times to ask for the bed and they kept saying that it was on the way.
When we find the worm we ask for the manager, and he WA a not in the hotel.
terriable dirty place

The staff just walk in your room at all hours without knocking every day. They claim it's a wellness check but when I called BS they admitted that it's not a wellness check and they just want to go through your stuff to make sure your not a criminal
