“Great location and easy access to Disney World Complex”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Stayed here for Walt DIsney 20th Anniversary World Marathon. Although flight to Orlando was delayed several hours, staff greeted us just before midnight with open arms and a quick check in. The room with all the amenities of home was perfect as expected. We had a rental car to get around and were able to get back and forth for all the Marathon festivities very easily. Local shopping was close and convenient. Executive Office conveniently allowed printing of boarding tickets so we were able to streamline our way through the airport when we left on Monday morning. We would definitely recommend this hotel in the future. A little more expensive than the resort hotels, but the amenities make up for the small added cost.

Room Tip: We stayed in a studio suite (2 of us) overlooking the pool and had all the room that we needed.

Friendly staff, comfortable/clean accomodations, free hot breakfast and dinners (with free wine & beer), fitness center overlooking pool; jacuzzi; convenience store items ($) and free wifi at a price $100 less per night than area resort hotels -- what more can a guest ask for. The first 3 days of my stay were for Disney running events; the remaining 5 days were for a business conference. Conveniently located to airport (about 25 minutes on highway). Comfortable beds, too. I'm looking forward to my stay in 51 more weeks.

We have come to love staying at Homewood Suites and this one did not disappoint!! The rooms were spacious and for the most part clean, I would say that that would be the one area that could be improved upon slightly. The food was good, especially for being included with the room. We wre traveling with 8 people so the savings on breakfast and dinner was huge. I know others have commented that it's included in the room price but to me if you are paying 174 for a room with 6 people, you are still getting a great value with food included. The staff was wonderful the whole way around. We were allowed very early check-in and were asked how our rooms were multiple times. The kitchen staff also-WOW! So great. Two gentlemen in particular really stood out, one at breakfast "Johnny on the spot" as my husband would call him was always so helpful, friendly, and making sure your every need was met (including making you waffles :) The same goes for the gentleman at dinner, helpful as could be. Loved this hotel, great value, great service would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the highway, highway noise can be heard when the heater/ac is not running.

Recently stayed here for four nights on business. I'm always happy with the general feel of Homewood, yet this particular facility far surpassed my expectations in many ways. For a hotel in the greater Disney area, I expected more wear and tear from constant use. It's obvious that the housekeeping and maintenance staff do a phenomenal job keeping this place in great condition. Beyond the condition and comfort, the staff was remarkable. I've yet to meet a team of hotel staff with such passion for their work. From the front desk to the housekeepers, everyone was happy and pleasant. (I can't say enough about a brief conversation we had with our housekeeper who expressed such a love for her job and a passion for excellence - how contagious!)

Will definitely come back to this property when in the area again.

We stayed in this Homewood Suites while traveling to Disney for the Walt Disney World Marathon. The staff was very friendly, and our room was ready early, which was great because we arrived on a Friday morning. The room was clean, smoke free and the beds were quite comfortable. My only suggestion would be that if you are traveling down specifically to go to Disney World, you might want to consider how much your taxi rides will cost from the hotel to the Disney properties. While all of the maps we looked at said the hotel was only 3-5 miles from Disney, each of our cab rides cost between $25-$30, depending on which park we were at that day. The hotel does have a shuttle to Epcot, but is limited. This would have been a great location if we had brought our car, but was a little remote when just relying on taxis. Overall, a great hotel, just consider its location!

All of the positive reviews you have read are spot on. This is great value for the dollar. Excellent location, close to all theme parks. Hotel has a shuttle service to Disney. Note, it's to Epcot and then you make your way from there using Disney's transportation system. Not perfect, but more than convenient. Free Breakfast, and Free dinner (with wine and/or beer) from Monday to Thursday. Would not hesitate to return. Caution, if your not a sound sleeper, stay away from rooms facing the highway. If you can, get a room facing the courtyard.

This is probably the best hotel I have ever stayed at in Orlando. Our suite was very comfortable and spacious, with a full kitchen, a TV, a bathroom, a sofa, a desk, and a king bed. The bathroom had a shower and not a bathtub, but that was just fine with us. The breakfast was delicious, and there are several different options, which we appreciated as vegetarians. It was also quite nearby both DisneyWorld and Universal attractions. The person at the front desk was very helpful with directions and quite friendly. I would strongly recommend this win-win hotel to any vacationer coming to Orlando.
