“Good, clean hotel close to everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2009

My family of 4 (2 adults & 2 kids aged 11 & 6) stayed for 6 nights at this hotel in January 2009. I read all the reviews and was most impressed. I have to say that I wasn't disappointed at all when we arrived there. The hotel is close to the Disney Parks (about 10-15 minutes by free shuttle), which was the main reason I booked there. They also offer a free hot breakfast daily which was great! Most reviews say that the breakfast room filled up quickly but we didn't see that as we were always there just after 7am each day. Free shuttles to Disney departed at 8am, 10am and 12:30pm daily. The hotel also offered free shuttles to return in the evening but these buses filled to the absolute maximum and could take up to 1 hour to get back to the hotel. This was not so great but we did it for 5 days as we didn't have our own car.

Hotel is very clean, beds are comfortable and staff very nice to deal with. Our 1 bedroom suite was on the 6th floor and contained 2 queen sized beds in the one room and a kitchenette. A day into our stay, we realised that we really wanted a separate room for the adults so we enquired at the front desk as to the possibility of changing rooms. They couldn't have been more hospitable and found us an amazing 2 room suite with KSB and pull out sofa in separate room. We had 2 huge bathrooms and a great view of the pool (which unfortunately we never got to use as we spent all our time at the Disney Parks!).

The rooms are huge, plenty of space to move around even with 6 suitcases! The only complaint I have is that you would expect a room with a kitchenette to have the basic essential items, (plates, utensils, glasses etc.. ) available for its guests to use. But there was NOT A THING in the cupboards and drawers, so we had to purchase disposable items from the nearest supermarket.

There also isn't a lockable safe in the room which meant that I had to lock our personal documents and cash in our suitcase. The safe is in the cupboard as they advertise but there isn't a lock on it (I found this to be the case in both the rooms we stayed in, so perhaps they want their guests to use a safe in their lobby).

The hotel is located just behind "Old Town" which is an amusement park that comes to life in the evenings. There is a Red Lobster restaurant about 1 minute walk away - really great staff and delicious food (highly recommended). On the highway nearby are many chain restaurants like Ponderosa (inexpensive & edible), Pacino's (Italian, so-so food) and many others.

On the night of our arrival we took a cab to the Premium outlet mall (20 minutes by cab) and stayed there until 10:30pm (most nghts it's open until 11pm). There are a lot of really good stores there and you an pick up a good bargain if you have the energy to sift through it all.

We purchased our 5 day Disney tickets at the tours counter at the hotel. It saved us the long lines at Disney itself and allowed us to walk right in.

Just remember that in Orlando everything is far away (in distance) so unless you have your own car , definitely take a cab! I needed to see a doctor during our stay and was told that the nearest medical centre was down the road. Down the road is actually 20-30 minutes by cab, so don't be fooled.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again if we returned in the future.

This is our 4th year in a row, that we have stayed here. Rooms very clean and staff very friendly. Breakfast buffet not bad at all for a hotel. We usually go the parks for for several days, however some of our favorite attractions include: SAK's comedy club in Orlando, Lake Cypress Airboat Tours, and never miss Crabby Bill's in St. Cloud.

The rooms were nice breakfast area filled up fast as well as parking The shuttle was a different story we took it one time it was packed people standing because there was no seats left it goes to a few hotels so by the time it gets to comfort suites it is already packed so skip the shuttle. The pool was nice and heated There is 1 washer and 1 dryer on each floor get your quarters before hand because there is no change machine and the front desk rarely had quarters also do your laundry late at night or really early in the morning otherwise you have a long wait. You do get alot of pizza fliers under your door and the elevators take forever I was on the 6th floor one elevator broke it took me 25 minutes to get on an elevator to go down try to stay on a lower floor we were there a week and only 1 day both elevators were working.

We're frequent visitors of Orlando Florida. We NOW stay in resorts because of these crap hotels. It's funny because we were actually suckered into this hotel with Wyndham reward points. We were told that if we signed into the timeshare we would get a week free at this hotel. Of course we were pretty skeptical because what hotels are actually free? We thought that since Wyndham was a reputable place of business, we would have a nice stay at a nice hotel. Little did we know, eh? We had a sign in our room, stating that we would probably see bugs. It said the bugs were harmless but still, they're BUGS! The air conditioning was very noisy. The bathroom toilet was also loud. The room smelled of old feet, and old nursing homes. The pool was inappropriate for children. Not the pool itself but the people in the pool. They were doing things that small children should not witness. The pool was occupied with basically the whole hotel. The hotel itself was THE worst place we have ever stayed in. WE WILL NEVER RETURN, IF WE WERE PAID TO COME BACK! We are now owners of a timeshare and will never revert back to hotels, especially comfort suites. UNACCEPTABLE, unless of course, you're used to staying in cheap, inhumanely comfortable & or gross, hotels.

We stayed at Comfort Suites Maingate East the first week of February 09, could not have picked a better hotel. Excellent service by the friendly employees, comfortable beds, lots of pillows, wonderful continental breakfast. The only thing I would do different is rent a vehicle instead of depending on the shuttle service. The shuttle drivers were kind and helpful and always on time but very limited in times leaving and returning. Sometimes it took us nearly an hour to return to the hotel just 2 miles away from WDW due to all the stops along the way. Wasted valuable time. Otherwise, I LOVED the stay.

  • Liked — cleanliness, friendly staff, comfortable beds, good breakfast
  • Disliked — shuttle times
