“Excellent proximity to UCF.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Great location if visiting UCF. Friendly staff. Free parking and free, tasty hot breakfast. Large kitchenette with full size refrigerator in living room area of suite. Although the hotel was full, no noise between rooms or from the corridor. Free and ample parking. Liked the e-checkin 36 hours prior allowing us to actually select our room. As a result it took seconds to physically check in when we arrived (show ID and credit card, get room key). Adjacent to a Walgreens so easy to pick up snacks, etc.

After a terrible experience somewhere else down the street, we found this hotel online and called to see if we could get a room that same day. We explained what happened with our previous hotel and they were so helpful to accommodate us. My friend was traveling with her baby and they even brought us a play pen (no cribs available) for the baby. The service was great during the breakfast. Over all it was a pleasant stay. Very thankful that they honored our online rate, even though it was not available once we got there.

We wanted to use our Hilton Honors points for a one-night stay and had a hard time finding an available property. Our preference was to be near Walt Disney World, but this was our closest option. The location turned out to be easily accessible and the hotel and amenities were really nice. Our suite was spacious and comfortable and the service throughout the hotel was great! We all loved the hot breakfast bar.

Dear ml1031,

It is great to hear that you were able to utilize the perks our hhonors program has to offer and we are very grateful that you have chosen our hotel for your last minute trip to Orlando. Thank you so much for writing a review about your experience here on tripadvisor. We are excited how much you enjoyed your stay. As you mentioned, although there are several options closer to the theme parks, the Interstate is easily accessible from our hotel and you will be able to enjoy the attractions in no time. We hope to welcome you again should you travels bring you back to Orlando.

Sincerely,

Steffi Snelling

Ask for a room towards the back. It's quieter and there is a back entrance
Plenty of free parking
Next to a Walgreens which is open til midnight

the breakfast bar is fantastic! Hot foods change on a daily basis. They also have several different varieties of coffee

The rooms are a nice size (they are all suites). Each has a very nicely appointed full kitchen complete with a stove top and dishwasher. All rooms also have the necessary dishes to prepare meals (which I did a couple nights).

There are two TVs and there are plenty of channels.

Room Tip: Ask for a room towards the back. It's quieter and there is a back entrance

We stayed here recently for an event being held at UCF. The rooms were very large and everything you could think to need was provided. The kitchen area was well stocked and I liked that the sofa bed bedding was in zippered pouches. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast was very good.

The rooms were very spacious. We loved the separate kitchen and living room areas. Really made us feel more like we were at home. The staff was most accommodating and very helpful. My daughter accidently broke a glass in the kitchen and I fully expected to see it on my bill, but they didn't charge me for it. I was very impressed. This was one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. Everything was absolutely perfect.

Our robotics team stayed here last weekend. The location to UCF is wonderful, plenty of good restaurants handy to select from. The rooms were spotless, the beds comfy and the staff extremely pleasant and accommodating. Our team and another robotics team that was also staying there had to be at UCF super early on Sunday morning. These folks were nice enough to open the breakfast bar an hour early for us so the kids could have a hearty meal before heading out the door. The gal putting out the food was cheerful and kept the food coming....and it tasted great! They also let us use the conference room the night before for one final practice session. I would be happy to stay there again if we go back to the area, and will certainly recommend them for future trips.
