-> Tuscan Hills
The first time we stayed in a villa instead of a hotel we stayed at a wonderful villa at Tuscan Hills. It was so much more than we expected. The community is close to Disney World, grocery stores and restaurants. We have been Orlando many times before and staying at Tuscan Hills made one of our favourite trips!
We would definitely recommend this villa community, especially if you are a medium to large group as the villas are very spacious.
We'll definitely be back again!

-> Clarion Inn, Lake Buena Vista
On this trip we are 3 adults and a teenager. We spent 10 nights of our trip at the Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista. We got a great deal on price, it cost ?682.82 for two rooms (two doubles in each), including continental breakfast.
We emailed the front desk a couple of weeks in advance to request upper floor, car park view rooms, and on check in they confirmed our requests. We were given adjacent rooms on the top floor facing the car park, just as we asked for. I would definitely recommend requesting car park view rooms, as the I4 on the pool side of the hotel would be a bit noisy at night.
The rooms are spacious enough, the bathroom was small but functional, the bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in. Housekeeping made the bed, replaced the towels etc., but didn't hoover the carpet.
The only issue we really had were ants in our room, I called front desk and they sent a maintenance person with an ant spray which he advised couldn't be sprayed with people in the room and all he could do was wipe the areas with it. We requested another room instead, while we were packing up our things, a staff member organised the change of room and brought the new keys up to us. So there was an issue with the ants, but the hotel sorted it out very quickly!
The free continental breakfast is limited, but good for something small to start the day, consisting of apple or orange juice, choice of two cereals, milk, toast, butter and some jams.
The hotel is in a great location for Disney, Premium Outlets (LBV), Crossroads (TGI's etc). Palm Parkway (which the hotel is located on) is great for avoiding the I4 when driving to Universal, Florida Mall etc.
Would stay again at that great price :-)
