Room safes did not work. Were not informed on checkin & when asked for someone to come fix were told we could store valuables in an envelope at reception. After complaining to Club Carlson they got a bank of lock boxes at reception - although 2 people could have carried them all away complete with valuables. Shuttle bus to Seaworld... More

WI fi kept disconnecting if we were able to get a signal. Breakfast was a carb fest with biscuits and gravy and croquette potatoes. When they weren't out. Ran out of milk. Tons of kids. Truck didn't show up? Won't be staying here again Have stayed in scores of Country Inns before, but this was by far the worst. Left... More

Overall, this hotel was great. When I walked in, front desk was attentive and quick throughout the check in process. There was fresh and free coffee and cookies at reception and the lobby area was clean and presentable. The breakfast in the morning was good and they had many options, including sausage, potatoes, waffles, toast, fruit, and more. The room... More

We stayed here while bouncing between Carlson hotels for several weeks in Feb 2015. We stayed here on two occasions during that time and were very pleased with the hotel. As mentioned by others, it's on a quiet street, but only a few minutes walk from International Drive with it's many restaurants, shopping and attractions. While most of our nights... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks july/August 2015. I will start with the pros. It is situated in a quiet location 10 minutes walk off International drive. There is hardly any traffic noise or noise from any bars/clubs etc. Plenty of parking spaces. Pool is adequate and clean with plenty of towels provided although seating/sun bathing beds are very few.

Nice hotel with very friendly staff. The breakfast can be a disappiontment for europeans, but it has got the standart american stuff. Mostly sweet stuff. Very clean rooms. Value for your money. Stayed there for 14 days, and will choose same hotel if we go back to orlando and the game parks again.
