Reviewed June 16, 2010

I spent a lot of time reading others reviews prior to booking the hotel for our trip to Seaworld Orlando. I had narrowed it down to this hotel and Residence Inn at Seaworld. I chose this one because it was rated higher than the other. Well, after getting there and actually seeing both of them, I realized that I had made the wrong choice for our family. The room was just a normal "hotel" room and the bathroom was just a typical hotel small bathroom. There was a small microwave and small refrigerator to put a couple of six packs of pop in. The breakfast area shuts down at 10:00 am - so, don't think that you will sleep in and then go have breakfast.....they make no exceptions and really didn't seem to be pleased the one morning that I showed up at 9:55 to get breakfast "to go". There is not a table for eating in the room - only the desk. This hotel was within walking distance of Seaworld, but keep in mind that when the weather is greater than 90 degrees, plus the concrete and humidity - it feels much, much worse. And, would definitely not recommend the walk back at night unless accompanied by a man. It is rather dark and many trees for someone to be hiding behind.....just not a safe walk for women/kids. The pool was only your average hotel swimming pool. Overall..............I wish I would have stayed at the Residence Inn where we could have had a kitchenette and a little more space for the money we paid OR stayed at any Motel 6 or Days Inn away from Seaworld and paid less than half of what we paid for this room. We were just disappointed and expected more.

Hilton Garden Hotel Inn near Seaworld . Reasonably priced hotel, good customer service, ver helpful staff, good food, pool open until 10pm, room pretty basic but when if visiting the attractions then you only need the room for sleep! Quiet location with restaurants in walking distance. International Drive Trolley (bus) stop + Lynx bus stop on Westwood Boulevard, outside of hotel. Free shuttle bus to parks but I Trolley very convenient too. International Drive 15 mins on trolley with may fantastic eating places. Would recommend hotel as in walking distance from Seaworld and Aquatica. Orlando is one awesome holiday destinations. Will return and 'do' it all again! :)

The hotel is in a Great location for Seaworld, Discovery Cove and Aquatica. You could walk but who does that in America?! Its a 3* hotel but it was quite comfortable and fine for our needs. Universal and Disney were only a 10 min drive away as was Mall at Millenia.

I would stay there again

The hotel is very nice with very roomy rooms and you can see SeaWorld attractions from your window if you are at the back of the hotel like we were. We had issues with our hotel/SeaWorld package, which was a HUGE hassle (standing in many lines at SeaWorld and trying to get it fixed with the hotel). The Group person there was very nice but make sure you read every line of your package deal to make sure you get what you THINK you're getting! Families with SMALL children -- this is QUITE A LONG WALK to the main entrance of SeaWorld and we are an active family in good fitness. Very tiring after a long day at the park. The shuttle only runs 2 times a day at not very convenient times but you can drive (but then you'd have to pay parking, I think?). The pool is small but nice. Good parking. Rooms were VERY nice.

I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn for 10 days and found it to be very comfortable. The room was huge, very clean, well maintained and well equiped- hair dryer, iron, free wi-fi. The bed was massive!! and so comfortable with soft squishy pillows that made for a great nights sleep :) Best of all- so quite!! No noise at all so many zzzzzzzzzzzz to keep us happy after long days at parks.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. This hotel has a free shuttle bus that takes you to the parks- Epcot or Universal. While we were there It ran twice in the morning to each place (about 8 and 11) and picks up in the evening late afternoon and at 9.30 from Epcot allowing you to see the illuminations. Dont forget that you can hop around using disney transportation once you are at one park so the shuttle whilst its not frequent is more than adequate for your needs. We took the shuttle once ( so we could drink) and found it most useful.The hotel has a bar, restaurant, pool, laundry room- pretty much everything you need on site.

We drove so got breakfast from places on international drive- if you dont drive I would say that you would need to eat in the hotel as there are no restaurants within walking distance. The itrolly bus picks up all along the street outside tho so you can always hop on that to get places. The best thing about this hotel is the fact that is is right on Seaworlds doorstep and a short walk to Discovery cove. We walked over to Seaworld in 10 mins saving on the parking :)

I would reccomend this hotel and would stay again as the location is great. Just off the I4 its a short drive to all the theme parks ( disney about 15mins away) you have premium outlets 10 min drive away- great for picking up some bargains!

Wonderful location. Easy stroll across Seaworld parking lot. We booked this hotel through AAA and received vouchers for the buffet breakfast and a $10 7-11 gift card. The buffet breakfast was the "usual" hot buffet breakfast but it was well done. I loved the endless cup of coffee!
We got caught in the rain at the end of the day at Seaworld and our sneakers were soaked. After spending $2.00 for 15 minutes of dryer time at the hotel...our wallets were soaked too.
Note: There is absolutely no food within walking distance. Don't ask the front desk for sushi recommendations. The hotel is open for dinner but we thought we'd try something else.
The room was clean and quiet.
Overall, an excellent value.

My husband and I recently visited Orlando for the first time in about 20 yrs for a bday trip, to visit Disney and Seaworld. We checked in about 5 pm on a thurs, a short 12 min or so cab ride ($37 bucks) and we were at the Hilton Garden Inn. Very clean, well air conditioned, CLEAN NEW hotel w/pool bar, and restaurant all there. I loved the aqaurium too, i found a dog fish in there that looked, well, like my dog i had to leave at home, so i made sure to say hello to this cute fish everyday!. The supervisor, James, at HiltonGarden Inn was an awesome guy. Very polite and cool to talk to, served us delicious drinks at the bar. I chose this hotel because of the free shuttle to disney (VERY VERY cost efficient because its FREE) and its literally walking distance to Seaworld, or you can also take a free shuttle just down the block. They pick u up at a bench right in front of the hotel pool. So helpful! Our room was on the 4th floor, Room 434, nice view of pool and palm trees so i could look down and check to make sure hot tub wasnt busy (oh yeah did i mention that previously? awsome hot tub for those sore feet from walking at disney all day!) . Our bed was SO COMFY, very nice sheets, room was simple but very nice. Free WIRELESS internet! yay! we also enjoyed room service for an early dinner. This place was the best. and we got a great deal ( on expedia.com) . Anyone staying in Orlando, looking for quality and comfort with a good deal and close to free shuttleand ofcourse Seaworld and Disney, you must stay here its better then any hotel in the area. for what you pay and how much free you get, you cant go wrong staying here. :) Its also a short ,13 dollar cab ride to International Drive, hotspot for shopping, amazing bars, nightclubs, and delicious places to eat !
