Room was large, clean and comfortable. My room was across from the elevator but very quiet and I could not hear the elevator. Hotel is within walking distance of most restaurants. Breakfast was adequate. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Pool was warm and pool area clean.

I'm late on this by several months, but I want to say thank you to all of you that made my stay wonderful. My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon back in August and it was fantastic. Only minor problem was that I had turned 21 a few days before coming and had some problems with my ID at the hotel bar (my state issues a paper one until the new one comes in and it can take up to a month), but we got it all figured out. Again, thank you for making our honeymoon magical. PS: the location is wonderful for shopping at all those little dollar shops :)

Stayed here 5 years ago and found it to be a brilliant base for a 'Florida' holiday. So really happy to revisit. In a quiet road within 2 minute walk of the I-Drive with plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance. A 10 minute walk to Wet & Wild. 5 minutes by cab to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure though there are free shuttles from the hotel. Found the 9.25a.m. shuttle to Disney quite laborious however as needed to pick up at several other hotels before dropping at universal then revisiting those hotels again to pick up for Disney so on the bus for nearly 1.5 hours to undertake a 30 minute journey. The spacious hotel room was a little dated with worn patches on the couch and chair, however faultlessly clean (our maid was fab and so helpful) bed was really comfy.Plus free WiFi. We BBQd by the pool several times so found the room kitchen facils very useful especially the big fridge with icemaker! The main reception & bar had been updated and looked good and the pool area, basket ball court and grill area were a big hit and kept immaculately clean by the lovely Victor. The biggest plus of this hotel however is the staff, we were looked after brilliantly by Malli and Dan who were incredibly helpful, totally indulgent of our whims and seemed genuinely interested in making sure we had a great time (big thanks guys). The downside however was the breakfast-though complementary, it was absolute chaos, the food not great and the staff struggled to resupply both food and clean plates. Also in the evenings after happy hour the hotel bar closed and it would be nice perhaps if a couple times a week it stayed open a little later, as we didn't always want to go out after a long day at the Parks. In conclusion, I would recommend this accommodation as an ideal family base for a Florida holiday.

We always use private villas on our visits to America (ashamed to admit slightly snobby about i-drive) but due to family visiting and meeting American friends, we ended up here. We would stay again in a heartbeat. Spotlessly clean rooms, great staff, including front desk and bar staff. I can't see what more you would require. Security staff were brilliant as well. Well done Sky Suites hope to see you soon x

- We stayed in the hotel for 8 nights. 2 queen and 1 sofa bed.

Here are the important things to consider ;

- The hotel is near Universal Studios
- Free Breakfast, free shuttle to all three attractions - Sea world, Universal and Disney
- Two queen bedrooms ( not double)
- Kitchen with Stove
- Little old. You can see the age. Two TV but not flat/lcd
- Washroom is little small. Only one certain in the bath tub, only one sink for all four of us.
- Room service, Hotel over all customer service is very good.
- When you call them, it goes to the call center. The staff is quick and accurate in their response
- No bad surprises.
- Breakfast is basic. After 3 days, you will get boarded and wanted to eat something different.
- It is the best match of the price.
- We booked it through expedia with flight, and it costs us very cheap.
- Also, nearby Gifts shops are good place to shop.
- We rent a car, but if you want to avoid the renting of a car, the hotel is a good option.

I recommend the hotel and would give 3.5/4 out of 5 of my own rating.

Filthy torn living room furniture, dingy, not vacuumed (wasn't my toenail), and a couple of bugs crawled up my arm while I was sitting in the chair. Because I used Hotwire (never again), we felt obliged to stay; however, even so, we checked out a day early, because it was just too grubby. Ancient televisions, refrigerator leaning to one side, kitchen far too sparsely furnished (not enough glasses, cups, etc., no dishwashing soap); with the range of accommodations in the area, this was a simply a bad choice, especially for the price.
Good location, hot breakfast a plus, nice staff.
