We were coming from south florida to Orlando for one night to go to Sea World... I booked through Hotels Tonight as this hotel had the best reviews/ rate from 5 that were listed. I definitely made the right choice. I was concerned at first staying at a hotel near MCO as opposed to one closer to the parks but it was only a 10-15 min drive to sea world and although there as some airplane noise it didnt bother us or our 3 yo.
The Hampton is is right off the main road and across the parking lot is a NY diner and 2 other other restaurants so dont be worried that there is no on site eating. Check in was easy, no wait. We didnt get a room option through hotels tonight, but I was glad I asked bc the king rooms only have a shower while queens have tub/ shower combo. We opted for a regular queen room which was well appointed, was very clean feeling/ looking and had a mini fridge. We were on 2nd floor above the firepit/ pool and for a Saturday night we didnt notice any loudness noises etc.. and we were back in room around 11pm.
The hotel was built in the fall of 2012 and you can tell. It is very clean and modern looking. Lots of places to sit and check email or play cards, relax. They have a 24 hr coffee/ tea bar which was a nice feature. In the morning we took advantage of the hot/ cold breakfast which was the nicest of any hotel I have stayed at in Orlando. You could make waffles, they offered a meat (sausage), scrambled eggs, hot oatmeal and fixings, 5 different cereals, yogurt, bananas, bagels, muffins and pastries. We didnt use the pool, but it seemed nice enough, there was also a business office we we didnt use but like I said we got there at 3:30pm and checked out the next day at 10am. However, we would have been pleased and comfortable staying longer.
Overall, I would totally recommend the Hampton Inn at Gateway Village, nicest hotel weve stayed at for under the $80-$100 a night range. Free parking, wifi, and breakfast... cant beat that!
