“Our Home away from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Always clean and welcoming. A perfect blend of breakfast items (usually two types of eggs, sausage, bacon etc) waffles, yogurts, bagels and pastries. Great coffee. Have stayed at this locale on many occasions due to both sons attending Full Sail University. This hotel is approximately 15 minutes to the FS University and about 2 minutes to UCF. There are many other hotel chains closer but so worth the few minutes drive to stay at the Homewood Suites. There is nothing like a clean, welcoming hotel with great staff, very well equipped kitchens and a fabulous breakfast. I would recommend to everyone and we will see them again soon. Regards

The pool is small, the suites are fairly larged and the beds are reasonably comfortable. The televisions in the room are decent, with the one in the sitting room being slightly larger than the one in the bedroom. The free food throughout the week is just 'ok'.. you get what you pay for... but if you're on a tight budget, it IS edible. I've certainly stayed at worse places, but was left less than pleased due to a billing issue which was completely avoidable.

Even though the hotel was under current renovations, my experience was pleasant all the way around. I had a suite which included a well set up kitchen. If you wanted to cook there, pot and pans were included with dishware and utensils as needed - even a dishwasher. The concierge was very helpful and answered questions as necessary. Daily breakfast was well stocked and fresh with varied choices of drink beverages and food choices. As a first stay with Homewood Suites, I was well impressed that I would surely return especially to this location with the proximity of different needs (banks, restaurants, pharmacies, entertainment, etc.)

Great Hotel, excellent service and location. I travel frequently and this was one of the better hotels I have stayed in . Even though the hotel was undergoing outside maintenance it did not affect the quality of the stay. The breakfast and desk staff was most pleasing.

Just attended UCF orientation for our daughter. Hotel is extremely clean and breakfast was superb! Definitely will return. Park in front if u can, gets a little dark at night in back entrance and definitely some shady characters walking by and riding bikes, UCF area like all colleges it has a homeless population that DNA feed off students! Would recommend hotel mounting cameras for back of hotel if they do not already have them. Wal Greens shares the same parking lot so convenient !

Room Tip: Ask for a rom in front of hotel to avoid back entrance of hotel so u can park up front!

I found this to be an excellent place to stay with great value. I did not realize that Homewood's provided free dinner in addition to the free breakfast. I was here alone on business, but would happily stay at this hotel with my family. Having breakfast and dinner provided makes this a great value. It was also clean and safe. The staff was helpful and friendly. Highly recommend.
