“Great Value - Great Service”
Reviewed October 15, 2006

We did a last minute trip to Orlando and went with Homewood Suites based on reviews - what an EXCELLENT choice for us. Super convenient to everything, clean, friendly and helpful service, free breakfast, free cocktail hours on certain nights - you definitely get your money's worth here. Highly recommended for travelers who is looking for a decent place to stay without having to spend an arm and a leg.

Chose these suites after reading reviews on website. went for 14 nights June 2005. Could not fault at all, staff are helpful, rooms are nicely furnished and bedrooms are well sized. Pool area is in a courtyard area so there is always somewhere in the shade. Really convenient location on International Drive. Breakfast each morning included and a real saving if you have a family. Wold definitely return and recommend

Stayed at Homewood I-drive with my girlfriend for 2 weeks 16-30 Sept 06.

The room was great. Really comfy bed which made getting over the jet lag tough! The lounge/dining room had its own TV so that was good for when i wanted to watch telly and she wanted to sleep off the day at the parks.

Breakfast was really good. Cleanliness was superb. They were having new carpets fitted while we were there (though the old ones seemed fine to me). They are obviously looking to keep their high visitor rating intact.

The lady on the parks information desk was wonderful. Toasy was her name and she was just right. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and helpful but not pushy. You needed anything or were unsure of what to do, then she'd sort you out. We already had all our tickets pre-booked with the holiday and I'd done lots of planning but still found Toasy's help invaluable.

Manager's special in the evening was fine but we liked to eat out and this hotel is smack bang in the middle of restaurant city! I mean 2 wks just wasn't enough to try them all. Bahama Breeze was great (and right next door). Tony Roma's was nice too. Charley's steakhouse was upmarket steak of the very best quality. Loads more, see my forum trip review for details if you're interested.

All in all this place was perfect for our needs: access to all parks, restaurant variety, value for money, shopping, comfort and cleanliness.

Only weak point is the pool area getting shaded too early, but they let you use a sister hotel if you ask at reception.

  • Liked — location and comfort
  • Disliked — key cards kept failing
  • Tips/Secrets — TGI Friday's room service. Massive portions!

I booked this hotel after reading the reviews , on Tripadvisor.
The only travel agent, in UK, that I found that offered this hotel was Travel city direct.
Anyway the hotel is in a good location, with several restaurants within walking distance. Its at the quieter end of International Drive, with good access to all the parks. So If you drive its a good hotel.

The room is a good size with a door between the bedroom and sitting room. There is a huge fridge/freezer, microwave,dishwasher, toaster amd two electric rings. All the pots, pans and dishes you need are provided. There is also a iron & ironingboard, hairdryer and in-room safe.

There is a breakast provided every morning, which is OK, and on Monday to Thursday there is a themed meal provided, with beer ,wine and soft drinks.

The pool is in the middle of the hotel so it's shaded most of the day, but thats not the problem. The pool is about 3 foot at the shallowest, so could be a problem for young kids.

So, so to sum up, this is the best hotel we have stayed in International drive, our 7th vist.

Very very nice hotel. Myself, my wife and my 1 year old son have just come back from Orlando. We booked flights but didn't have any accomodation booked.

Having reseached many many web sites and confusing ourselves with the vast range of hotels we decided to book this one. And what an excellant choice we made.

We spent 4 nights at the hotel and the rooms were fantastic and very clean. They just starting to renew all carpets in all rooms at the hotel this week - the old ones looked fine to me!

The service was the best! We used the free transport to get to Disney, but there was some confusion over our return trip. As a result we were stranded at Disney. We phoned the hotel and they said jump in a taxi and we'll pay for the fare ($35). It transpired that the error was actually of my wife's making and she didn't book the return coach travel - never-the-less the hotel didn't argue they just wantred us back safely.

After our trip we took an internal transfer to New York to spend some time with relatives. We would then come back to Orlando for 5 nights before coming back to England. I decided to save a bit of money and book a different hotel. I booked La Quinta.

When we arrived back to Orlando, the taxi took us to the hotel. What an absolute disapointment. All I can say is that I checking in at 2pm and checked out at 3pm. The rooms were horrible, they were clean but not of the "Homewood" standard

We phoned Homewood Suites and they sorted us out a room that day. I can honestly say that for the sake of a few pounds I nearly spoit the whole holiday.

Plus points
- onsite laundry
- fantastic bed
- good kitchen for storing milk/water/left overs
- staff were very friendly
- they even stored our luggae whiole we were at New York!!

Minus points
- only two PCs in the internet cafe room, usually taken most of the time
- area around the pool is a little limited

Book this you will not be disapointed if you want a good location, and a very clean room for a comfortable nights sleep.

  • Liked — The staff will do everything to help - just ask them
  • Disliked — Number of Internet PCs - only 2
  • Tips/Secrets — Don't waste your time looking elsewhere book this.

We stayed 5 nights and had a one bedroom suite. The service was especially nice. All the employees went out of their way to make our stay as nice as possible. In contrast we stayed one night at the Contemporary Hotel at Disney and they were practically rude compared to the employees at Homewood.

I liked having an almost full kitchen with full sized frig with an ice maker. It made it nice for bringing home doggie bags from the many nearby restaurants. There are too many nice restaurants within short walking distance to name. And in a 10 minute walk there are 21 movie theaters and a Hooters and Capital Grill and other restaurants in the shopping center. At this time the shopping center is under construction but the restaurants and theaters are open for business. i should say crying for business due to the construction.

The ceiling fan in the bedroom was a nice touch and no complaints about the a/c. I liked the fluffy bath towels.

We used the pool and spa and they were both nice. There is an exercise room that has all necessary workout gear. The pool deck is a bit tight if you are trying for a sun tan. We enjoyed the fact that so many guests were from the UK, another favorite travel destination of ours. On International Drive I counted 5 Indian Restaurants and 4 British Pubs - we loved them.

The hotel was a little hard to find the first time but the directions on their website made it easier. Lots of free parking.

  • Liked — employee attitude and helpfulness
  • Disliked — small pool deck
  • Tips/Secrets — check out the nearby convention center for trade shows
