“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2011

Myself and my partner stayed at the Springhill Suites for two weeks in May. We had looked forward to staying there after all the great reviews. We were very disappionted as soon as we arrived to be met by a miserable and sullen trainee receptionist. For some reason she seemed to go out of her way to be like this for the entire time with us. It was rather off putting when we had to ask something or use the safe, and check out. Maybe there is an issue for more training needed by the management.

The rooms are very good. No complaints. The towels are changed daily, the shower is great. There is free internet, a microwave, fridge, and coffee machine with free coffee provided daily. Plenty of toileties are provided. Even and iron and ironingboard is provided. The mattress is excellent.

Our room faced the front of the hotel and we could see some of Seaworld from the window. There was a laundry room on our floor, the 5th. For 1 dollar each you could use the washer and dryer. It took only 1 hour 15 mins in total. The powder can be baught at reception.

The pool area is nice, but when its busy, its hard to get a bed as the pool is shared by the Fairfield too. Towels are provided free.

The hotel has a great free shuttle bus to Seaworld and Aquatica. I read a few people has walked there, but we wouldnt have liked to try it, not in that heat! The hotel gave us free 'fast past' bands for Seaworld, which proved very worthwhile. Another free shuttle goes to and from Univeral, which is great, as we found this park further away than what we thought. You have to book the free shuttle at the desk next the entrance of the hotel. That is also where you get the fast pass bands for Seaworld.

The red line I-ride bus stops outside the hotel. There are some fast food places to eat within walking distance. Wendys, Dennys, KFC and Macdonalds up the road. On the doorstep is a TGI Fridays. There is a garage selling snacks and wine, and behind that a supermarket and couple of restaurants. A large chemist is opposite, and that sells some snacks and drinks too. The hotel has a pizza hut at the pool. As far as we could see the hotel, apart from the breakfast didnt do any food. It had a Starbucks which was only open until 12.30pm. There is no bar inside the hotel.

We did go into the Fairfield and wished we had stayed in this hotel instead. The staff seemed nicer. The rooms seemed the same good standard, but the reception, breakfast area and lounge were much bigger and had a more relaxed, calmer feel. At times, especially at breakfast, the Springhill was very crowded and noisy. The cheap tables and chairs gave a fast food canteen feel to it. We felt it was more for teenagers, of which there were many, especially weekends. Lots of school parties seemed to stay at the hotel.

The hotel gives value for money, and is in a good location, but we wouldnt stay here again unfortunately due to the bad attitude of the receptionist.

This hotel was a pleasure. The rooms were really big, even a walk in closet. Comfortable beds, great friendly staff. The shower even had wall jets spraying water in addition to the normal overhead showerhead. The breakfast was acceptable, what I would expect from this type of hotel.

There is free transportation to acquatica and seaworld which are next door but too far to walk. ALso, the hotel gives out a limited number of fast passes for seaworld if you are at the activities desk early which is a nice bonus.

There is a TGI Friday's and CVS in the parking lot which is very convenient. Hotel is also close to Universal about a 15 min drive.

Overall, good hotel for a good price, even better than I would expect from a Springhill Suite.

We planned a rather last-minute trip to Seaworld when the kids got out of school for summer break. We wanted to stay near Seaworld to avoid long commutes, and SpringHill had a room available. They accepted my AAA membership for the discount when I booked it, and the room as ready when we arrived at 4 pm.

The room was spacious, with two queens and couch that would fold out, if needed. I large LCD TV was included. It swiveled to face either the beds or the couch. My only complaint was few channels available to watch with kids. At night, we watched Netflix on the laptop.

There was a small fridge, microwave and coffee pot. I did like the the shower being in a separate room from the toilet. Each room had it's own sink. The shower also had additional sprayers, which the kids loved.

The staff was always friendly, and the room staff palced my daughter's stuffed animals in different positions everytime they cleaned the room. She couldn't wait to get back each evening to see what they had done this time!

Starbucks in the lobby was my second home!

We'll stay here again!

Stayed there for 3 nights to be near Seaworld and Discovery Cove. The location was perfect! The hotel is fairly new and the stairways still had that new carpet smell. Employees were super friendly and really helpful. Lobby is really cute with a seaworld theme. Rooms were large. We especially loved having 2 bathrooms in the suite. One bathroom has a sink and shower, the other has a sink and a toilet. This was very convenient for our group of 3 women! Loved having TGIF Fridays right in front of the hotel. Only drawnback was that the pullout couch had a very thin mattress, I mean really thin. My 21 yr old daughter ended up sleeping with me becauset the pullout was really bad. it would probably be okay for small children.

Room Tip: 2nd floor near staircase.

We only stayed one night after our cruise and before our flight home but it was very nice. It was clean and had a small fridge and microwave. The pool was a nice size and looked like lots of fun for kids. My daughter certainly enjoyed it. The breakfast buffet lacked meat (bacon, sausages) but one can survive without them for a day. I definitely would stay there again. Fantastic location if going to Sea World (right across the street) and even for Disney it isn't a far drive.

We stayed Saturday through Tuesday. Rooms, staff, food, cleanliness were all great. We were very pleased with the hotel. Some clientele on Saturday night were sketchy. Lots of beer bottles poolside. After the scary people left, the stay was more enjoyable. Security was great with our group of 17 yr olds. TGIFridays and CVS Pharmacy were adjacent. Very convenient to i-ride trolly and SeaWorld parks.

Springhill Suites ideal base for 2 day visit to SeaWorld

1) Rooms and public spaces clean and well equipped
2) Breakfast ample and great start to day
3) 5 minutes to SeaWorld by free and friendly shuttle
4) Quick Queqe passes worth the price of hotel - No wait for roller coasters and Atlantis
