I stayed here last weekend and found this to be a good choice.
Location is very good. Close to Universal and Sea World. They have shuttle service available (reservations required). Close to the convention center. Lots of reasonable restaurants around the hotel (avoid Friendly's: filty bathrooms and dining area). Short drive to the outlets (Prime was boring. Premium very good) and Millenia and Florida Malls.
Room was a standard extended stay suite set up. Fridge, coffee maker (1 packet makes 3 cups and you get 2 packets of regular and decaf. Tea as well), kitchen supplies, free wi fi (sometimes cuts out), local calls at .75, Very clean. Housekeeping did forget to replace the towels one day and to replace the dish soap another day. Free USA Today at your door in the morning. Safe (too small for my laptop). Bed was comfortable. As previously mentioned the Air Con can be noisy. Used the ceiling fan in the bedroom one night.
My main trivial issue was we received a letter under our door 3 nights in a row about them replacing the toilet in our room the next day and they never did replace it. Looks like they were working on our level on check out day. Minor nuisance just making sure our stuff was out of the way.
Good Breakfast set up. Did catch some of the Managers reception one night that was just OK but hey it is free so I can not complain! Love the fish tank, great way to wind down.
Staff was OK. Some of them were very hard to understand but we made do. No horror stories here.
As also mentioned previously you do not stay here for the pool, hot tub, or health facilities. Parking at the front could be hard to find on some days, no problems on others.
This is a good solid hotel choice for families, business people, and convention goers that want to be somewhat self sufficient.
