“Great location for I-Drive vacation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

This is a very comfortable "suite style" hotel, which is very well positioned for anyone who doesn't want to drive in the States (more Brits find the idea of driving on the "wrong" side of the car/road than you might imagine). The hotel itself is the standard US style hotel, which is comfortable, and spacious in a U shape with the swimming pool in the middle. Where this hotel scores over others is the breakfast room, which makes a big difference to your timings in the morning, allowing you to get to the parks that little bit earlier or have an extra half hour in bed. The pool can get a little shaded in the late afternoon if you sit in the wrong place, but the facilities are pretty good. The location of this hotel is very good, with some very nice restaurants nearby, notably Bahama Breeze, Olive Garden and Cattlemans. It is walkable to Wonderworks and the Pointe complex. Nearby there is a great little mini golf too. The road network is ideal with quick access to Universal (10mins) and Disney (20mins). It is ideal for young families, and the staff as you would expect in Orlando are on the friendly side.

We stayed for five nights at the Homewood in Orlando. My wife was attending a convention that was being held at the OCCC, about one mile away.

The rooms were quite standard for Homewood with no surprises but not as nice as some we have stayed in. The appliances were fully functional but quite noisy, in particular the AC and the dishwasher.

Breakfast was standard fare, but was low in fresh fruit, and weighted towards eggs, meats etc, though waffles and various breads were also available. Still, not the healthiest. The welcome home buffet, typically had a nondescript meat based main dish, but salads were always available, as was wine or beer, for those who wanted alcoholic drinks.

The staff were helpful.

All in all a reasonable value, particularly when one considers the "free" food.

I stayed here for one week while attending a conference. It is very convenient to the convention center and many places to ear. One day the air conditioner didn't work but a call to the front desk brought maintenence in only 10 minutes and it was fixed. Everything was clean and staff was pleasant. The breakfast and evening dinner was adaquate. This would be a good place to stay with young children. The pool was nice but was in the shade all afternoon. The front desk attendant told me I could use the Hampton Inn pool next door if I wanted more direct sunlight. The bed was comfortable and there were plenty of pillows. I enjoy having a refrigerater and microwave while staying in hotels on business.

Room Tip: Parking lot view was noisy at times

We stayed here in February this year our 2nd stay here. Although we had a problem with our air conditioning the excellent service by the staff more than made up for this. The hotel was full on our 1st night so could not be moved to another room till the next day but the staff bent over backwards to help with the lady engineer bringing us fans and drinks to make our night more comfortable. The next day so as not to impede on our break our belongings were transferred by staff to another room as the air conditioning was out of action completely. And the duty manager Mario was exceptional and offered us free transportation for a full day taking us to Contemporary resort for our character breakfast, picking us up from Downtown Disney then taking us to Florida Mall and back to our hotel!
The hotel it's self is great with comfortable accommodation with separate living area, complimentary breakfast with hot choices and an evening meal Mon to Thurs with free beer what more could you want.
We are coming back to Florida in 2014 with our extended family with the intention of staying here again and would definitely recommend this place to anyone coming to Orlando.

From check in to check out, it was a very pleasant stay. Management is exceptional at this hotel, very helpful, very courteous. Walking distance to everything, Dave & Busters, Bahama Breeze, lots of restaurants, movie theatres. We love to take the bicycle taxis down to Pointe of Orlando. Breakfast here was plentiful. The suites were nice. Staff was very friendly. We will return for a family fun stay.

Room Tip: Pool side rooms are nice.

Fantastic hotel on international drive, within walking distance to lots of restaurants, we stayed for two weeks and the staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble, breakfast was good, room was clean, we cannot fault it, would definately recommend it, lovely shopping malls and the I-trolley was excellent for getting around

Room Tip: we stayed on the 5th floor and it was fine

My boyfriend and I stayed here from April 25th till May 9th. Really good location, close to the iride trolley stop and many restaurants nearby. Although taxis found it hard to find. Pool was lovely and enjoyed lounging by it.

Our room was a bit of a disappointment. At first it seemed nice, not overly big, small kitchen with hob and fridge, two tvs which were great, an en suite (needs a bit of updating but was fine overall) and a king size bed (which was super comfy, no complaints!). We had a few problems that I know many people would not have put up with.

One night the toilet was making the loudest noises and sounded like it was filling up constantly even though we hadn't used it. We got no sleep that night at all and in the morning had reception send up the maintenance man, Joe. Joe was fantastic and fixed it the following day after he had gotten a part for it. We did not receive any apology from management, but Joe and the girls at reception were fantastic. A few days later we awoke to find our carpet was soaking wet. Contacted Joe again, and he said it could be a drainage problem which required a large noisy fan which was kept in our room for two days to dry it out. This was really inconvenient. Again no contact from any management.

When we were checking out, we asked could we speak to management about the problems we'd had to see if we could get any refund for the night of no sleep due to the toilet. But we were told there was no management available and nothing could be refunded as we had prepaid through our travel agent. This was a big disappointment and found it quite unprofessional. Again, the reception girls were very apologetic.

The buffet breakfast was great, a bit repetitive but great for being free. The free dinners from Mon-Thurs were also fantastic, there was always nice salad and wine and beer etc.

Overall, it was an average stay, but not the quality that I have come to expect from a Hilton owned hotel.
