Residence Inn Orlando Lake Buena Vista

 Residence Inn Orlando Lake Buena Vista

If there is one thing I dread about traveling is finding a hotel that can comfortably accommodate our family of five. My kids are not old enough to be in their own room and even with adjoining rooms there never seems like there is enough space for everyone. Price is also a factor, you all know I love a good deal! 

A couple of years ago when we went to Sea World for the first time as a family of five, I discovered the best hidden little secret in the Orlando area at least to us. Marriott Residence Inn Orlando Lake Buena Vista! Fast forward a few years and many, many vacations in the area they are still our number one vacation hotel

We have stayed there so many times that my kids call it “their vacation home”. 

There is so much that the Residence Inn Orlando Lake Buena Vista offers! We all know that traveling with smaller kids is not always easy on us parents, but they have thought of everything to make it so family friendly. Making it a much enjoyable trip for my husband and I.

What Do I Love about the Residence Inn Orlando Lake Buena Vista?

  • Free hot buffet breakfast for starters. There is something for everyone, eggs, cereal, muffins, bagels and more. Even these adorable Mickey waffles that are a must have when we go for the kids, okay me too. They are just too cute! 

residence inn pool


  • The pool area is a big plus for us. They offer a kiddie pool off to the side out of the way from the main pool. This was so nice when my youngest couldn’t swim in the “big kid pool” yet. Now that all three of my kids are able to swim the main pool is a huge hit for them. We add an extra day just for swimming when we go.

  • Each room is like a mini apartment, all with a fully equipped kitchen. Just bring your groceries or fill out a card and they will stock your fridge for you. They do have a mini mart in their lobby if you just needed a snack or drinks for the kids. We get the two bedroom, 2 bath and it suits us perfectly! The master offers a king sized bed with private bath. The second bedroom has two queen sized beds and it’s own full bath too. The sofa in the living room doubles as a pull out bed if needed. There is just so much room for us to feel comfortable and it truly has become a home away from home. 


  • The Residence Inn Orlando Lake Buena Vista is extremely centrally located. Only 15 minutes from the Orlando airport. Downtown Disney, Sea World, Epcot, restaurants and outlet malls are all within a few miles. Just a few exits away from Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Universal. It’s tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Orlando and Disney which I love.

    1. Not dining out saves a ton of money! My kids are picky too, so it makes it so much easier when I can cook while on vacation. They will eat the breakfast provided by the hotel though, they can’t get enough of the waffles ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Those rooms like nice! What i really love is that waffle lol. me and the kids, love us some waffles.

  4. We were thinking of doing a birthday vacation for my daughter this year, its between two places Disney or NY so if we go to Disney we will stay here. THANKS FOR SHARING THIS! place looks great and great for kids. i do priceline but they don’t tell you if place is for kids or not, so that why i love you saying your kids call it their vacation place! ๐Ÿ™‚
