Recently attended graduation at UCF and stayed in this hotel, but then we always stay at this Homewood Suites for UCF activities. Clean, quiet, comfortable beds, and a great breakfast. HWS is my favorite brand!

We had a very great experience and the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful! If you ask, they have some complimentary things for HHonors members. The breakfast that they serviced was very nice and I was pleased to see them change it up a bit every morning. The only problem we had was with our wake up call, we ask for it to be at 4am but received it at 3:18am.

Dear Karen D,

We are delighted to hear that your first stay with us was such as positive experience. Our team works hard to exceed our guests expectations each and every day. As you mentioned, we offer our complimentary breakfast that offers a variety of items and the main dishes change every day. Hopefully during your next visit you can also take advantage of our dinner reception Monday through Thursday which is a great added value for our guests.
I also wanted to thank you for bringing the situation with the wake up call to my attention. I would like to apologize for the inconvenience and assure you that I am currently looking into the matter with my phone company to avoid a glitch like that in the future.

Again, thank you so much for writing a review here on Tripadvisor. We are looking forward to welcoming you back soon.

Sincerely,
Steffi Snelling

I stay at this hotel several times a yearfor professional and personal purposes and have a comfortable experience every time. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, and I can trust that a nice glass of wine and comy bed will be waiting for me at the end of a long day every time!

A very nice hotel, conveniently located near the UCF and the research communities. There is a Walgreen's right next door, though if you want to get snacks or basic foods you need to go before dinner, as the UCF student types clean out much of it by about 6 PM. Access to the hotel parking is best done through the Walgreen's parking lot area, it opens onto a side street with a traffic light at the Alafaya intersection. Very clean, well maintained hotel. Hot breakfast every day, and dinner (Mon-Thu only). No soda dispenser, juice & milk available at breakfast, lemonade, juices, beer & wine during dinner. I would definately stay here again.

Excellent place to stay. Clean surroundings, well kept, good food and excellent service. Close to UCF and several government contract facilities. Only 35 miles from JFK Space Center and closer to Universal Studios and Disney World.

My son and I flew in from NJ to stay one night at the closest and most economical hotel so he could visit and tour Full Sail University. From the moment we stepped on the property the people were warm and welcoming. I was also surprised to learn that not only drinks and snacks were available for us for free (pretty standard at these hotels), but dinner was as well. So after a long travel day we were able to relax and have a nice dinner at no additional cost. And even though the menu was limited, it was very good. Additionally the rooms were large, clean and provided the space me and my son needed to spread out and have 'our own space'. The toiletries were great, the room temp. was wonderful and the tv's were large and state of the art. I especially loved the little touches. Sanitary wipes on every remote control and a special twist to the shower curtain to make you feel special. I've stayed at many Hitlon's - even the Conrad in Tokyo - which is amaxing by the way. But for the money and location I was more than happy with the room, amenities, special offers, but the staff as well was so warm and welcoming. I told them upon my checkout I'd write this review. Thanks Hilton for a jon well done. By the way the hotel location I'm writing about is the one on North Alafaya in Orlando. Thank you.

Room Tip: The free dinners/cocktails at night and free breakfast in the morning make the price value exception...
