Family Vacation - Hotel or Resort with Full Kitchen

We will be traveling to Orlando at the end of July. In years past, we've done the timeshare tours but didn't want to waste a day on that this year. Any recommendations on hotels? Only need one bedroom...

Would love to have a nice pool area as well...

We've also stayed at an Extended Stay and hated it. It stunk badly!

Something reasonably priced.

Any help appreciated

What are your dates exactly ? How many kids ? Adults ? Which Parks do you plan to visit ? Will you have a car ? ( assuming a car if coming from SC but ... )

Vista Cay is very good, two or three bed condo or town houses in gated community with pool. Situated in an ideal spot on Universal Bvd (right next to the Orange County Convention Centre).

Been 3 times previously and will be going again end of July - can recommend!!

I agree with schoolholiday, went to Vista Cay last easter and will go again this October. I would opt for the premium condo 2 or 3BR, very nice and great location , especially for US and Seaworld.

You should look into Homewood Suites on I-Drive. It has full kitchen with 1 or 2 bedrooms, as well as free shuttle to all parks and free full breakfast buffet (if interested). Residence Inn and Staybridge Suites also have full kitchen, 1 or 2 bedrooms and free breakfast (not sure about shuttle). All 3 are reasonably priced and get good reviews. There's also Sheraton Vistana Resort and Sheraton Vistana Villages. Beautiful properties with full kitchens and washer & dryer (in suite). They often have special rates available that are quite affordable. They may offer a timeshare tour, but it's optional...just decline the offer and book your unit as a resort rental.

There are other properties with reasonable rates and 1 bedroom...such as Country Inns & Suites, Comfort Suites, Springhill Suites, Embassy Suites, Doubletree Suites. However these properties only have kitchenette type facilities (microwave, sink, mini-fridge) not a full kitchen.

we liked the marriot harbour lake. Nice pool, water slide and splash pad for the kids. Unlimited days of mini golf for a small upfront fee

ice cream sundaes every afternoon for the kds (and some big kids too)...
