Super 8 Kissimmee/Maingate/Orlando Area
Ranked #37 of 154 Hotels in Kissimmee
Reviewed February 6, 2010

First, this is a Super 8 not a Holiday Inn, not a Comfort Inn, nor a Holiday Inn Express. It is very reasonable priced but remember the price is not the price you will be paying because of the mandatory safe charge -- very irritating. Also, they charge your credit card for your whole stay when you check in.. The rooms have been redone in the last year or two very nicely. The personnel are very friendly and try to be helpful. The wireless internet connection was very good. The breakfast is very, very basic with a few oddities like cream cheese but no bagels. Most mornings the coffee was OK except one morning it was weak like someone had put water through the same grounds more than once. Also, if you want a quiet room DO NOT stay on the nonparking side. There is a Publix supermarket with it's loading docks on that side behind the fence and trees. Trucks unloading awakened me as early as 4:30 AM one morning. (I had asked for a quiet room.) As this was very convenient to the conference I was attending, it was convenient.

For 43$ CAN per night you could expect bad things to happen to you... but it was a nice surprise to find a completely refurbished hotel with new and VERY comfy beds, older but CLEAN bathroom.
The continental breakfast was rudimental but the hotel is litterally a 30 seconds walk to a Publix grocery store where you can get fruits and pastries for your breakfast or freshly made sandwiches from the deli. There is also a Denny's restaurant right in the parking lot of the hotel. We went to Orlando to visit the attraction parks and only for that so the room was basically a place to sleep and shower. The front desk staff was very helpful and generous of their time.

We travelled to The Disney theme parks by public bus (2$ per passenger, the bus stop is right in front of the hotel) Visit the LYNX orlando website for info. We had to take a MEARS shuttl to Universal studios but it was worth it (they picked us off at the time WE wanted... great if you want to spend more time at Citywalk).
You can also easily reach Medieval Times by bus.

The Room on the Publix's side may get a litle noisy with the delivery trucks so if you're a light sleeper just request a room poolside. Also, a woman mentionned that her room was next to the ice machine and it did get noisy.
The pool was smaller but again it is an hotel you mostly go to sleep, it is not a resort. The area felt safe and the driver of the shuttle that took us from the airport seemed to think so.
If you go there, do go to Logan's BBQ (2 minutes walk) The best ribs in the world!!!
On the other side of the street from Super 8 you can visit Old Town (5 minutes walk)
I would go back no question about it :)

We requested a second room after inspecting our first room and the bathroom light wasn't working. We had to call the management on our second room because the mircowave kept beeping. They had to bring us another one. The mandatory safe charge, is just not right. We were very upset about this added nightly charge. The safe fee should be added into the room rate before booking! The grocery store is next door and noisy. It was nice the rooms had been remodeled. There is a Denney's next to the property.

First return stay in several years. Rooms renovated very tastefully, very convenient to local attractions and dining. Occasionally a bit noisy on the courtyard side, due to Publix, but not a disqualifying factor, for us, anyway. Courtyard very tastefully done, could use a first floor ice machine for the mobility challenged. Staff very cheerful, friendly and helpful. Many businesses in the area don't appear to care about repeat business. These folks absolutely demonstrate that they do. We will definitely return!

This motel would get a good grade for location and clean rooms ...however the management has decided to add a mandatory room safe fee at checkout. I neither wanted nor needed a safe. Their response.. a safe in every room controlled by the guest whether you want one or not. I researched the booking site and super 8 web pages for small print and found none. Ambitious management being "slick" is the message here.

Stayed here previously 2007 and it was a little gem of a motel. This time although the first impressions were that nothing much had changed on closer inspection standards do seem to have slipped somewhat. The room is a nice size and has most of what you need for short term or basic stays. Living area is clean and well maintained. What let it down this time was the cleaning-the bathroom in particular was not that great, and was dirty. The rest of the room and the public areas are lovely so not sure why this was in this way. A big let down and maybe they need to review this in future.

This was a convenient location for our 2 day visit to WDW. Our non-smoke 2qn bed room was clean and nicely furnished. This is an excellent value for budget lodging. Booked again for later in the month.
