Reviewed 20 April 2012

We enjoyed our stay at the Homewood Suites. Went April 11-14. Hotel was very busy. Were in room 202. Nice, clean roomy as expected. Had a toilet issue which was taken care of immediately after I called. Breakfast nice. Busy busy one day but that was no hinder to us. Front desk very helpful. Pool good but Garden Inn next door better. You can use it and charge to your room there also. Traveled with 5 kids and they loved it. Will stay again

Room Tip: 202 quiet room but is handicap accessible

Just stayed at this property, April 14th, 15th, 16th. Needed suite for my family of 6. 2 adults and kids ages, 8, 10, 12, 16. Homewood hit a homerun with me. Stayed in room 225, on the end of the building, 2 queens and 1 sleeper sofa. Check in was easy, front desk personel were professional and seemed to really have concern that our stay would be a good one, room was clean, front desk called 10 minutes after check in to see if the room met our approval. They were working hard to do make our stay enjoyable, I like that. I liked the towel art done by housekeeping, so did my kids. Bathroom clean, additional towels sent right up. No issues with stay, breakfast was perfect and included in room rate, great deal for large family. Close to Universal Studios, less than 5 min drive, maybe more like 3 minutes, very close, good spot. Upon check out needed to print SW boarding passes, could not do it from Business Center. Front desk did it for me, that's top shelf service ! Highly recommend this property, they get it.

Room Tip: We loved room 225, great spot near elevator, stairwell and ice machine, don't worry you won'...

This was a once in a lifetime holiday for us - two adults and two children, and we were very happy with this hotel. Would defninately recommend it to others with the same activities in mind.
Food - we got up early every morning to catch the parks before they got busy and took advantage of the American Breakfast. We also tried to return to the hotel by five on week days to eat the 'welcome home' food. Different food every day, but not much choice. We saved a lot of money by doing this and therefore splashed out on good restaurants during the day and on weekend evenings.
The suite was spacious - two rooms, a kitchen and a bathroom. TV in both rooms.
The kids especially enjoyed the pool after a hard day's enjoyment in the parks while we took advantage of the complimentary drinks by the pool side during the 'welcome home' buffet. Red and white wine and lager was offered. What a treat!
The hotel offer free shuttle survice to Universal parks, Seaworld and Aquatica. (One of the reasons we booked here) They are within short travelling distance on International Drive. Disney Parks are not included in the shuttle service. They are slightly further. We therefore hired a vehicle for seven days and visited all the Disney Parks. I would also recommend this, because it gives you freedom to come and go as you please rather than tie yourself to bus times. We managed to arrive parks by opening times on some days, and stayed late on other nights to see the displays and fireworks by the evenings.
Dennys and Ihop restaurants and 7 Eleven mini supermarket are within five minutes walking distance from the hotel. Very convenient.
We really enjoyed our stay. What a holiday. Located in the centre of park attractions and a relaxing atmosphere by evenings.

Room Tip: Get an early breakfast in the hotel before setting off to the parks, and return mid week for the ...

I visited this hotel with my family and found that it was so clean and comfortable. We spent a lot of time outside of the hotel, but on every exhausted return, the room offered such comforts. Very spacious, the safe was a plus - we didn't feel comfortable leaving out travel documents in the room or at reception desk. It was so close to many restaurants and the theme parks. Loved it and I have been recommending this place to others visiting Orlando. I will be visiting the US soon and I'm going to search for this hotel chain in the area that I am visiting.... and reason being, when I took that trip, I also visited Miami some days later and the hotel I booked was sooo bad that we checked out and had to find another hotel.

The check in was quick and efficient and it was a nice room. We had two-double beds which were comfortable for all of us. They also provided many towels which I was originally worried about since many hotels can be stingy. There was enough parking although the hotel seemed pretty full. We did not use the pool so can’t comment on that but we also saw a basketball court which was a first. We chose this hotel to be close to Universal and it certainly was. Easy walking distance even for a 9 year old. The only issue we had was that the shower wasn’t as clean as we would have liked. There was some black around the handle bar and some hair but other than that the rest of the room was very clean. They also did not empty the trash in the kitchen after the first day but we just made sure to keep the cupboard open the next day. It was nice to have the kitchenette to reheat food and store snacks and drinks to take with us to Universal. The front desk person was very nice and he recommended a pizza place which was really good. So much so that we ate there three times during out four day stay. The Pizza place was Flippers and not too far from the hotel. They also deliver. The free internet was nice to have and enough was on the TV for my son to be able to amuse himself the little bit of time we were in the room. The breakfast was what can only be expected from Homewood Suites, a nice spread. They had different choices each morning to include eggs, bacon, sausage, fruits, cereal, waffles, yogurt, coffee, tea, milk, juice and other items. The only real issue was finding a place to sit as it was very busy, a few days we just took it up to our room as it was easier. They had a shuttle service which we signed up for just in case but we didn’t take it as we preferred the freedom of coming and going as we wanted.
I would definitely stay here again.
