We stayed there prior to our cruise to the caribbean. We were promptly greeted upon arrival by the front desk staff with a cheerful hello, smile and offer to assist. Grounds were clean, well kept both inside and out. Pool area clean, lots of lounge chairs as well as tables and chairs. There is a pool bar open in the aftenoon and evening. When we walked into the room it smelled awesomely clean and fresh and we found the room to be just that. Breakfast each morning was excellent and different each day as well which was nice. Food hot and tasted good too. Bed comfortable and was quiet for sleeping. Was offered transportation to the ship, but we had car rental with transportation, front desk made sure we knew where to locate our rental office. Was close to the port. We love to stay at Residence Inn's to have the extra room to spread out. Will definately stay again.

We,a family of four,stayed at this property February 9th for just one night.The property looks like it's nearly new.I inquired and learned that it had just been recently re-modelled. The property has everything one needs to relax and make oneself at home.We had the 1 bedroom king.The kids slept on the fold-out queen sofa.Note.The door between the main room and the bedroom closes and locks.Parents with young children may now say 'thank you'.Privacy is important when on vacation.
A full kitchen,stocked with dishes and silverware as well as a microwave,coffee maker and much more,makes for economy with a Publix supermarket just south of the location. The hotel is minutes away from the cruise port. Also,just up the road is NASA.If one is doing ONLY the Orlando theme parks,the location is a bit distant (about one hour) BUT if time is being split between several activities,the location is perfect.The pool lounge chairs are in good repair and are clean,if not new or near new.The pool is crystal clear and adequate.It won't win any awards for being a kiddie fun zone.Just a pool.The whirlpool is just a tad over lukewarm.I know it's a matter of preference but I prefer them HOT.Also, more force from the jets would be nice.There are pool towels supplied.Also,the deck sports a separate area with tables,chairs a bar complete with a friendly bartender AND a huge,new firepit with chairs spaced around it.Very nice touch.
Smoking is allowed anywhere outside.
When we were there,the deck was quiet with a few people sitting at the bar and chatting quietly.It didn't seem to be 'the place for outta control kids' thank God.
Spring Breakers need to go somewhere else since this not a beachside hotel.
There is a full hot breakfast buffet.The hotel does not have a restaurant license so it's all brought in and heated on the spot.Filling,nutritious and a lot of variety.
The hotel has a small business center as well as a tiny convenience store.There is a guest lounge with a large flatscreen TV.
All rooms have premium cable TV.
My complaints are small.Not really even complaints,really,just items;

Increase the heat and temp in the whirlpool.

Stop charging four to five dollars for a domestic beer at the bar.

Have a few DVD players on hand at the front desk for check-out.

Room Tip: If you want to go to the beach,make sure you have your Residence Inn parking pass displayed on your...

Wow! What great comments. Thank you for taking the time to share all of this information for others to see! I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and had time to enjoy the pool, bar, beach and breakfast! I do apologize that the hot tub wasn't as warm as you would prefer, we will certainly look into that. We like to keep the temperature at 104 degrees!
Please come and visit with us again. Thank you!

We loved this place after our cruise. Had a 2 bed apt for 2 nights. Spacey, well decorated, nice kitchen, nice touches such as a shopping service and popcorn, nice breakfast, close to everything we needed. Beds comfy, staff were just fabulous and service was 10 out of 10.One slight problem- my son slept on the sofa bed and woke with bed bug bites everywhere.That really spoilt it for us. Unfortunately it would have otherwise been perfect. Hence my average rating. Had it not been for the bed bugs it would have been 5 out of 5- but they are not pleasant.

Room Tip: 2 bed aprt very good

We stayed here for 4 nights with plans to visit the space cented and Orlando attractions.

It's a great location for cruise departures, one of the closest hotels to the port.

Our room was clean and appeared newly remodeled. We wanted a place to stay with a full kitchen, but their included breakfast offering was decent enough that we never cooked our own meals. Be prepared for a wait at breakfast as the hotel was much busier on days when cruise ships departed.

It's a decent drive to Orlando locations (1 hour and up), you'd best stay closer if Disney and similar locations are your primary destinations.

My wife and I stay in a lot of Residence Inn properties and this is one of their best. The grounds are clean and the outdoor areas are particularly comfortable. My favorite events at these properties are the Manager's Receptions. On this visit we were treated to a delightful assortment of quality cheeses, salsa and guacamole with chips and a variety of crackers. The chocolate chip cookies and brownies were a nice finish. They also offered a nice selection of complimentary beer and wine.

Our room was very clean and comfortable. The high speed wireless internet was available throughout the property and offered easy connectivity, good strength and bandwidth. Perhaps our favorite part of the property was the fire ring. We met a lot of nice people during the Manager's Reception and many guests had a nice time enjoying the great outdoor areas.

I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Try to visit when the Manager's Reception is going on if your schedule permits.

Family of 9 had 3 rooms for one night before our Disney cruise. Fantastic all around - would highly recommend. The pool was lovely, and breakfast in the morning was very good. We all felt it was a great choice!
