Over the course of a week, I stayed in two different rooms (two separate bookings). To keep it simple here are the reasons to stay here:
1. Location: ridiculously close to Universal, Sea World, Wet & Wild, etc. Also, the hotel is on a quiet side street. Restaurants, supermarkets, banks, and gas stations are everywhere.
2. Staff is friendly, pleasant, and helpful with everything
3. Beds are comfortable and linens were clean
4. Hot breakfast selections are good. If you can get to the breakfast area very early, you can avoid the crowds that are there through the morning.
5. For Club Carlson members: free snack-filled gift bag and room upgrade
I would stay here again if I was traveling to Orlando in early November.
Lastly, if you're reading through several reviews, I would dismiss the review by "SteveEasternCanada." It would seem that he was expecting this hotel to be of four or five star quality. For this reason, his review is not really fair for this Country Inn & Suites.
