First experience with Country Inn and I was very impressed. Great location by the airport. Perfect for early AM departures or late airport arrivals. Great bargain for the price. Would definately stay again!

We live some distance from Orlando, so had to find a place to stay in order to make a morning flight and also a place to park. This hotel fills both requirements. They are near the airport and have a reliable shuttle. They also have a program where you can purchase a room and a couple of weeks parking for about a 50% premium over the basic room cost. That is a pretty good deal for the Orlando airport. Other hotels we researched only allowed a week. Plus, instead of being in a huge, probably dirt covered, parking area and relying on shuttles, we were able to park right on a hotel property. This is such a busy area that the rooms show some wear, but they appeared to be in the process of updating so that might improve. We did have a big problem - the boiler went out and we had no hot water for our stay. This was not well-handled by the staff there and it appeared to be kept from us when we checked in. No manager was present while we were there. On our return, however, we did find a manager and a reasonable sum had been deducted from our bill to compensate. So, not a great situation but in the end a reasonable outcome. The breakfast was mediocre, but there. Cookies there at check-in. About 8 restaurants nearby and we ate at one. So, in summary, this hotel was a good choice for our purposes.

This is a great hotel. The location and proximity to the airport was very convenient. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only low point was the air unit in the room was very loud when running. However the visit was still awesome.

Rooms were great, clean and very nice. The staff, and manager John Sterk, was a great host. My four brothers were here for a wedding of a nephew and were treated like royalty by the hotel staff. The price for the rooms was great. The breakfast was wonderful amenities were plentiful, next to the airport, with a great shuttle service. This hotel is as good or better than any Hyatt we ever stayed in

Room Tip: Any room in this hotel is great

I got a great Priceline deal... I needed to stay for one night near the airport as I had a late evening flight. The shuttle was free and prompt. The staff was really helpful and nice. Check-in/out was simple and the room clean. The free hot breakfast was appreciated. There's 24 hour coffee in the lobby and you can hoof it to a TGIF if you want... Or they deliver if your'e too tired. It is a good selection for what you get and proximity to the airport.

We stayed here a total of 5 nights. 3 Nights the first time and 2 the next week in April 2013. I was picked up from the airport and within minutes delivered to the hotel. The first stay we had a double room on the 6th floor. The room was comfortable and clean. The room provided a microwave, refrigerator, flat screen, hair dryer and iron. The room didn't have that wet smell that some other resort/hotels have in the area. They had breakfast in the morning, cookies in the evening and coffee in the lobby. Outside they had a pool and a hot tub with plenty of sun chairs and tables. The staff was polite and efficient. The second time we stayed in a King suite-- we did like the extra room, the bed felt better and the extra flat screen tv in the sitting room was a nice touch. As others have stated the hotel shuttle is awesome and get you there and back when you want/need it. They have a few restaurants/pubs within walking distance ( besides breakfast the hotel doesn't not have one) We needed something near MCO and out of the way of the "mess" and yet close enough to get to popular vacation spots-- and this fit the bill.
