We were originally going to stop at St. Augustine because we booked a hotel room there, but for a family of 5, we couldn't get a rollaway for the room because it was a fire hazard, so we canceled that, and after trying to find for other hotels with suites, we didn't find any luck. So we kept driving all the way to Orlando, and stopped at this Homewood Suites for 2 nights. Check-in went smooth, and we got our room without any delay. The lobby was just typical, but otherwise clean, and this was a bigger Homewood than I expected, so the elevators were scattered everywhere. Elevators were kind of slow, but maintained. Our room was on the 6th floor, and was right next to one of the elevators, and we didn't expect any noise whatsoever. Our suite had a private bedroom with 2 beds, and a sofa sleeper in the living room area. It also had a kitchen with a stove top, a toaster, etc., and a ceiling fan in the bedroom area. Our suite had a view of the outdoor pool, and had a little bit of a view of Universal, as well. The room was a little dated, and one of the vents in the bedroom area was covered with black dirt, and it looked like it hadn't been dusted in months. Also, the TV in the living room area didn't work, so we called maintenance, and SURPRISINGLY, the maintenance guy sent my dad and my brothers to another room to watch some TV for the first night, so that he can fix it the next morning. The cable was disconnected, so he fixed it, and finally we got a TV! The bathroom was clean, and the shower had hot water and decent water pressure. Free wi-fi worked great, and wasn't really slow. A/C didn't work too well in the living room area. Beds were cozy, and had no trouble sleeping. Check-out went fast, and our stay at this Homewood was OK. This hotel is neither good nor bad, and can use some improvement, but it's in excellent location as it's located off of International Drive, and close to the theme parks, and numerous stores and restaurants.
