“Enjoyable stay!”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Spent two weeks here with our family (2 adults/2 children). We wanted a suite-hotel (with a separate bedroom) as our youngest child was only 12 months old at the time and we knew she'd be going to bed long before we were! We also wanted somewhere fairly spacious and the Hawthorne Suites did not disappoint.

It's a nice complex and excellent value for money. Staff were extremely friendly and approachable. The room was a great size with a kitchen/ diner, separate lounge area and bedroom (with two queen size beds). Kitchen was well equipped (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, hob and plenty of plates, cups, glasses, utensils etc). Room was cleaned well (every day if you want or you can opt to have it done less than this is you don't want staff traipsing in your room on a regular basis).

The outside pool area and hot tub was pleasant. There are landscaped gardens and basketball courts. It's not a huge garden area (and the pool could get fairly crowded some evenings) but it was enough for my children and a good place for them to cool off in after a hot day at Disney World.

Breakfast was free (as was parking) and there was a fairly good variety of hot and cold food. The breakfast area could get crowded but they had an extra 'over flow' room they opened up on some days so there was always enough seating to be found.

Hotel was close - only a mile or so away - to Disney. There were shuttle buses that came to the hotel (as long as you were prepared to go at set times) although we had a car with us so didn't take these.

Overall a really pleasant stay and we would stay there again.

This is a nice hotel, one of the best thing is the location, is near I4 highway, so is very easy to go everywhere including attractions and shopping centers, the hotel is nice, the only thing is that rooms are smaller than they look in the picture, so it can be a little bit uncomfortable. Most of the staff is attentive, specially the one´s that attend the breakfast.

Room Tip: lower floors, there is just one elevator, and if you are carrying a lot of thing with you can be ver...

I thought hard about giving this hotel 4 out of 5, but it's not quite a 5. But I should point out, before I write the review I will definitely come back and definitely recommend it.

We stayed here for 10 nights in March/April 2012. The hotel is in a great location, close to Disney, sea world and 15+ restaurants. The olive garden 1/4 mile away is great. But there are plenty. There is a Walmart 7 or 8 mins away in the car also. So location is great.

Staff - all of the reception staff are top draw, very good and helpful. Breakfast and maintenance staff too. The rooms are pretty good - kitchen area with coffee machine, microwave and fridge/freezer. 2 tvs and bath/shower. A little dated but nothing major. Clean and decent beds, pillows ok.

The pool is ok, it's not massive and not dozens of beds, but we never had a problem getting one. Kids loved the pool, it was very warm. Reception and general areas are pretty good, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is good - it's free, so remember that. If you are from the USA and used to good buffets, it will be of average quality. But they do 3 hot items, various fruit, breads etc. We got a bit bored by the end of day 10, but to be fair it started the day off well. Enough choice and the kids enjoyed it. Also the coffee and tea is available all day, a nice touch. Coffee was half decent. Cereal, toast, bagels etc.

They do a managers drinks and snacks evening mon to thurs. Two drinks, wine or beer, plus soft drinks. This was a nice touch and we relaxed by the pool whilst having it.

There is free wifi in the room, enough for business use. Not super fast, but not bad.

Overall, we all really enjoyed our time here and will come back. Please remember this is a 2 1/2 star hotel. It is actually more like a 3 star +. The rooms are nice, lobby nice, drinks and breakfast a nice touch. A great location, that is key. Why didn't I give it 5 stars? I grade hotels on value for money, this certainly is. Ut I would hate for someone to think this is a 4 star type hotel. There is no bar, the gym is useable but only has 5 items I. It (which by the way was perfect for us to use), the rooms are nice but a little dated, the pool is adequate but not amazing, the towels, for example, are not plush. Laundry room, which is helpful. That sums it up, more than adequate for families on holiday and out most of the day - but not plush. We will be back as great value for money. The staff should be commended for doing a great job.

Room Tip: I would avoid the laundry room (second floor near lift) area.

just arrived back from our holiday in orlando/clearwater we spent 10 nights at the hotel, found the location perfect for where we wanted to go, the breakfast was adequate for what we wanted, something quick and easy, the rooms were clean and everyone seemed friendly, the kitchn in the room was a godsend, we took a lot of picnics with us to the parks and this hotel is based right in the hear of where we wanted to go, in between disney parks with quick access to seaworld, discovery cove etc, we wanted to use our money for the attractions and meals in the evening so brought bread sandwich filings and snacks, drinks, water etc from the walmart on turkey lake road( just left out of hotel and keep going!

We used the pool occassionally and it was perfect for our two girls and me and the wife, if i wanted to be ultra picky then there is a slight gap under the main door allowing some light andnoice in ( sorted with a towel in the evening) the two rooms was nice for us as many days the girls were shattered and faced with the choice of all going to bed at 8pm or going for a nap late afternoon, we could put them in the main bedroom.

All in all a great hotel for the price and the amount it saves you in time and expense, would not hesitate to come back when disney inevitably calls us again!!!

We recently stayed here for 5 nights and we did have a very good stay. Our room was next to the elevator and I guess the walls must be rather thin, because we hard it blinging now and then through the night.
The interior was rather dark and we felt it could use some renovation. The rooms and as far as we could see, all areas in the hotel were very clean.
The staff were ok, but not overly attentive and helpful, but for our needs it worked fine. Parking was no problem at all.
The breakfast buffet, that was included in the price, was ok, but if you don't like fried food in the morning, there wasn't too much to choose from.
The pool area was very nice, with also a small bakset ball area. However, there were very few sunbeds and if you got there late in the afternoon, it could be hard to find one that was free.
The location itself of the hotel is very good, close to Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios and restaurants.
