Reviewed June 14, 2007

This hotel is very average, definitely nothing special.

Pros: So close to Sea World you can walk there, bar, breakfast is available, in room microwave and fridge, close to highway, nice bedding.

Cons: Pool is on the parking lot, lots of kids, a/c was very loud, breakfast is kind of expensive (we just bought groceries), dishes in the hallway from room service, etc all day, the view (parking lot and road), checkout is at 11 AM

I stayed here for 4 nights in late March 2007. Chose it based on price, location -- 2 blocks from SeaWorld, my main reason for going to Orlando -- and TripAdvisor praise. Very nice hotel - not fancy, but completely enjoyable.

Extremely welcoming and helpful staff, including the restaurant staff. The room was excellent - lots of space even with 2 queen beds - and very clean. I can't endure heat and the air conditioner was very effective although noisy, but I can sleep through anything. Oddly, although the hallways were nicely air conditioned they were quite humid, even though the room was not humid.

Bright, beautiful, clean hallways and speedy elevators. Room service food was more imaginative and tastier than average. A comfortable, attractive, welcoming hotel that's close to just about everything. I would definitely stay here again.

This was a great place to stay. Room was very clean. Elevators were quick. The shower water pressure was wonderful.

Hotel is behind the parking lot of Sea World. If you walk out of the back of the hotel, it is right across the street.

Dixie Stampede is around the corner.

One word of caution, I kept turning the wrong way leaving the hotel and ending up on a highway.

Very nice hotel. Close to Sea World and other attractions. Front desk personnel very helpful. Rooms were clean and updated. Pool and hot tub very nice for kids. Breakfast was great (as are all at HGInns). Watch out for "free shuttle to parks" as they are contracted out to a separate company (they sometimes run really late and may try to charge you for the free trip). Hotel was extremely trustworthy as we left 14 DVD's in the room. A week later we contacted hotel and all DVD's had been retreived by housekeeping and returned to us.

Booked through Orbitz without a choice of room-type. Ended up with 2 double beds instead of the preferred King. After checking in I asked to be moved, but the front desk could not accomodate the request for the first night. The next morning we asked at the desk and they were very helpful and moved us to a King. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms/inside lobby was clean. The hotel overall is very safe and well kept.

The pool is smaller than it looks online. It is locaated in the front of the hotel so there is not much privacy from the parking lot and people entering.

The location is convenient - close to I4/Disney and truely right across the street from Seaworld. The trolley is outside the door and fast and convenient.

The rate was good, but there are many many many hotels along I-drive to choose from. I know you could pay $20 more per night to stay at a place with a bigger/nicer pool if that is important

Everything about the reservation process went smoothly. I booked directly from the hotel a few months in advance, and everyone I spoke with from my first phone call to the last one before we checked in was friendly and helpful. I am employed by a company that partners with Hilton, and recieved a discounted rate, but from our stay, I would have paid any price for the room and service.

Check-in was smooth. Our room was on the 6th floor and was very nice, we could see the roller coasters at SeaWorld. It was unusually cold during our stay, but the days it was warm the air conditioner worked promptly and effectively (which, during the summer anyone would be thankful for)! My husband and I are private people, so we kept the Do Not Disturb sign on the door most of the time. One morning we took the sign off the door at 11:00 and went to lunch, when we got back at 12:00 our room was cleaned and nothing of our personal effects had been touched.

We did have one problem where our remote had gone missing after housekeeping had been there. When we called the front desk they had on sent up to us within 5 minutes.

The location of this hotel COULD NOT BE BETTER! It was right off of International Drive, but far enough away that you couldn't hear the noise of the traffic. We bought seven day passes for Universal Studios, and the hotel staff told us a really quick back way to get there. We had a wonderful trip as a couple, and I am certain any family would have a wonderful stay at this hotel. the next time we return to Orlando, this is where we will be staying, no doubt about it!

This was my first stay at this particular hotel. It is located at the back gate of Sea World and has easy access from the airport via 528 (toll road) and only minutes from the Orlando Convention Center. Staff were friendly and rooms were clean and well appointed. High speed internet access is free. The restuarant in the hotel has good food and reasonably priced by hotel standards. There is also a small bar area in the lobby. The pool is decent size and was very clean. Rates were very reasonable for a high season rate (Easter).
