“SHAMU'S HOME”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We stayed here because we had a function in the area. Although we weren't going to Sea World or any of the other attractions, we wanted to be close to the action. This place is right there! It's on International Drive with more than enough eating places, attractions and the convention center. We commented several times how sparkling clean the hotel was and we enjoyed our suite The breakfast was good and pretty typical of a Fairfield Inn & Suites, so it gave us a good start on the day. The staff was also very pleasant and accommodating.

Room Tip: Some rooms are parallel to a well used road and you could hear the traffice until evening. Then thin...

We stayed here for 2 nights when we visited SeaWorld. The hotel is located very close to Sea World and you could see the park from the room window. Guests at this hotel can use the free shuttle to Sea World that runs several times throughout the day so that you don't have to pay for parking at the park. Guests also get a free Quick Que bracelet which lets you jump to the front of the line-a great perk!
The hotel seemed new and well taken care of. We never had time to use the pool area, but it looked nice and clean. The breakfast area was large and stocked with bagels, waffles, fruit, etc.
I would book this property again, especially if planning on visiting SeaWorld.

We booked a Sea World Package which included hotel, tickets to Seaworld, fast pass tickets and transportation to Sea World. This Hotel is great I would return ANY TIME!! But transportation was slow and drivers were rude and unfriendly. Worst was they "sold out of said included fast passes so we didnt get any". Beware of package Sea World deals!!

Stayed for Disney Showcase, and it was an ok stay. I felt the room cost to much, the room smelled like Vic's vapor rub I suppose from whatever they use to clean it. The water smelled like mildew or raw sewage, had buy bottles of water to drink and use in coffee machine. The wifi was Terrible, kept losing connection. The remote for the tv didn't work, and At night the room was lit up like downtown Orlando. Had to put the Alarm clock in the nightstand it was so bright and couldn't get the curtains closed. For the price I paid I was expecting a memory foam mattress or at least one of quality, bed was not comfortable.
On the plus the staff was very friendly and helpful, I've never stayed in a Hotel with as many pillows on the bed. The complimentary breakfast very good with fruit, paistries, yogurt, cereal, and alternating between eggs and sausage, and biscuits and gravey. Staff was always cleaning the tables and there was plenty of seating. Room service was a little on the expensive side but not outrageous.
Traffic was absolutely terrible trying to get to and out of the hotel parking, but that is to be expected in such a tourist destination.

Stayed here for a golf vacation in December. Hotel is directly across from Seaworld. Staff was very pleasant. Rooms were standard, nothing fancy. Pool has a splash zone for kids and a pool bar for adults. Hotel offers Pizza Hut delivery to room and has a restaurant on site. There is a TGI Fridays about 50 yards from hotel and a few fast food joints within walking distance. Drug store also nearby for sun tan lotion, etc. Further North on International drive there are many more restaurants and shops. If I had to do it again I would probably stay down there because of more choices and activities. But I enjoyed my stay at the Fairfield Inn.

Great hotel for the price. Friendly staff, simple but adequate breakfast, clean rooms. Perfectly placed for Sea World and only 10-15 min drive away from other parks. Worth noting very limited shuttles to parks other than Sea World. Nice to have the pool too.
