Homewood Suites by Hilton Orlando-Nearest to Univ Studios
Ranked #61 of 341 Hotels in Orlando
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 May 2012

My family and I stayed in this hotel with 2 kids and we liked very much. The free breakfast is ok (anything special) and they turn the light off when at 10am. A rude way to say: Leave!!
The parking lot is free and very good.
The staff is very nice and helpful. We stayed in a room just besides the laundry and there was no noise.
As cons I'd mention the lack of safe box in the room, there is no oven on the stove and the area the hotel is located in (near Universal). So much traffic and we took so long to get to WDW parks..
But we'd definitely stay there again.

We spent a week visiting Orlando with my brother, his wife and teenage daughter on April 9th for a week and chose this hotel since it was close to Universal Studios. My husband and I usually try to stay at these hotels and we enjoy the use of the large suites, the access of full kitchens, great full breakfasts and options of also dinnertime meals if we happen to around at that time. It is our 4th time for the Homewood Inns whenever we travel and our first choice. I'm sure my brother and his family were quite impressed and will also use these hotels when travelling in the states as well. We fully enjoyed the vast choice of big belgian waffles, fresh cut grapefruits, scrambled eggs, sausage patties, bacon, yogurt, grits & biscuites, fresh coffee, juices, oatmeal, etc Even though the IHOP Pancake House was just a stones throw, we were very happy to make our own fresh waffles with whip cream & strawberries for ourselves in the mornings. The mornings that were quite busy, people often enjoyed their breakfast just out the doors on the patio by the pool. My niece and I love the sweet fresh Florida Grapefruits every morning too.
We found the service was excellent , not only at the front desk but from those that also worked hard to keep the eating areas clean and the kitchen staff were prompt and did an excellent job !
I made sure on our last day - to especially thank those hard workers and that we really appreciated the hard work they put in to ensure hotel patrons were take care of. That is why I always come back to this hotel on our travels. The cleaners and hotel staff always had a smile and cheerful greeting when we acknowledged them in passing. We rented a mini van for our week and the free parking here was great and we always felt safe in the area. The free internet was handy, especially in looking up data or printing off our boarding passes at the end of our stay. Our families were also able to soak in the hot tub and have a swim in the pool at the end of the day when our feet were tired and we needed to relax. We had fun chatting with other travellers at the pool. The hotel is also close to the main strip of International Drive where there were lots of excellent shopping (outlet malls at the end), mini golf places, wet and wild water park, stores, restaurants, etc . We dined at Boston Lobster Feast, Sweet Tomatoes, IHOP, etc. We visited Epcot, Universal Studios, WonderWorks and the Biggest McDonalds in the World which was on the strip.
We also had Sunday service at Mary, Queen of the Universe Church. It was a very beautiful church and grounds and peaceful stroll in the Rosary Gardens. The Outlet malls were great shopping and we got some great deals. The weather was great and the crowds are now great since kids are back to school from Easter. Our thanks to Homewood Suites for another great holiday stay and for your hospitality !

Stayed here from April 2-8 with multiple extended family members for nieces wedding/vacation. Great breakfast every morning and dinner Mon-Thurs was special bonus. Was nice to be able to meet everyone for breakfast and not have to deal with a restaurant setting. Breakfast was varied enough on daily basis to not get too repetitive. Rooms were spacious with separate bedroom and living room space with door in between and 2 TV's and full kitchen. Location is right next to Universal and route 4, about 10-15 min to Seaworld and 20 min to Disney. Staff were helpful and gracious. Has outdoor pool/jacuzzi but no other on site frills. Only negative that took away from being perfect was at 4:30am water started dripping from vent in ceiling over toilet. Called front desk and they looked into it and told us everything was ok in room above us and would send maintenance in am. Called back after breakfast as was still dripping and told toilet had overflowed upstairs but was fixed. Was a bit upset that we weren't told it was toilet water after we had allowed overselves to be dripped on to use the toilet. But they credited us one nights stay for the inconvenience. Great place if you just need a home base to visit parks and are traveling with multiple families and don't want to spend a ton of money on hotel.

Again, thank you so much for choosing our hotel for your family gathering and when your travels bring you back to Orlando we do hope you'll visit us again.

Nice hotel, clean rooms, shuttle service to Universal Studios and Sea World. With so many hotels in the Universal area this is a very good choice. Small breakfast buffet in the morning which is convenient. Nice hotel in a good area. Red Lobster across the highway and a Denny's nearby. All rooms are suites and nicely furnished.

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
