SUNSOL International Drive
Ranked #172 of 340 Hotels in Orlando
Reviewed May 23, 2014

The Sunsol provided a more than adequate stay. My husband and I stayed for 2 nights so that we'd be close to Universal. Check-in was quick and the room was fine - comfy bed and came with a microwave and fridge. We didn't have time to test out the pool but it looked nice and clean, and the pool bar had a really good happy hour so we definitely took advantage of that! They didn't seem to have late night food service and their breakfast was not good, so you may have to find other arrangements if this is important to you. There are a bunch of restaurants and a 7-11 within walking distance though, and also a mini-golf place if you're looking for entertainment. Shuttle to Universal was nice, but they only have 1 time for drop-off and pick-up so you just have to be flexible.

Don't know what all the bad reviews were about. We find the location excellent with free bus to Disney and Universal. Room well liked after every day with towels and free shampoo etc replaced as necessary. Beds very comfy and breakfast was adequate to start the day. It was a bonus not to have to go out for breakfast. If u wanted a cooked breakfast Ihop and Dennys a few minutes walk. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend as a base no problem

Love this hotel. Stayed last year when it was still under construction, and returned this year to take the kids to Universal, which is right next door. I was surprised by how beautiful the hotel turned out, the kids wanted to leave Universal when the sun was still up so they could jump in the pool! Amazing attention!

The only problem we had was the horrible internet connect from 4th floor... We informed the manager but it seems as if they are highly aware of the issues.... All they need are boosters to strengthen the connections throughout the hotel.. I hope they fix it very soon... Apart from this problem, we really enjoyed our trip as it was in prime location to all the attractions and dining. The service was excellent and super friendly staff. Will definitely recommend to friends.

Room Tip: If you want good internet connection. Stay on first or second floor.

Check-in

Arrive about 1:30pm in the afternoon on Wednesday. We had requested an early check-in via email/contact but never heard anything back from the hotel. They didn’t even check for a room, they simply said “check-in is at 3”. So we had to dig out a change of clothes, change in the lobby restroom then go about our day. To make matters worse, the hotel was nowhere near full and we walked by several rooms where the drapes were open, beds made, ie – unoccupied and available.

Lobby:
It’s a small lobby with a couple of computers to use, a small bar with cookies and lemon and apple water to drink. Nice, clean and presentable.

Room:
Rooms were decent as far as décor, but small finishing touches were overlooked by their contractors. Our door stuck and had to be body-checked open. The tile shower had loose caulking, moreover, no tile edging was used so you can see the ugly side edge of the tile, lastly, the floor tile wasn’t cut correctly around the door frame so you can see a gap between the tile and the door frame – I’m not even a carpenter and I notice these things. Bed was quite comfortable, but no alarm clock, nor was there a 4th pillow for our King bed which hotels typically put in a closet/dresser. You could hear cars in the parking lot, but we just used ear plugs - I would recommend you bring some too. The shower seemed to take a while (3-5 minutes) to get hot, but I think that’s just first use as my wife showered after me and she had no issues steaming it up. Good water pressure too – at least on the ground floor. A microwave and bar fridge are available too, and the bar fridge was a good temperature to keep things cold.

Breakfast:
Ample selection of food. Toast, breakfast burritos, waffles, pancakes, bagels, breads (and jams), muffins, cereal, instant oatmeal, coffee, juice and fruits – sorry, but if you can’t find something to eat here you’re probably a picky eater. Seating could be a little tight if the weather is/turns bad, but we sat outside as there was plenty of seating there too.
Shuttle to Universal:
We caught a return shuttle home our first night which was a few minutes late – no big deal. The shuttle the next day to go to universal was one time. It’s a quick drive. If you wanted to take a taxi, take a yellow-cab as it’s a few bucks cheaper than one the hotel will call you.

*Taxi*:
If you need a taxi and ask the front desk to call you one, specifically ask for a yellow cab, unless you want to pay A LOT extra for a Lincoln Navigator to drive you the same distance. Learned this one the hard (read expensive) way.

Overall:
We got a groupon for two nights - it’s a decent enough place to stay. Allowing us an early Check-in would have made a better first impression. We’ve stayed in many hotels and while it’s by no means 5-star accommodations, it’s not a dive either. There’s plenty to do around the area that you need not be stuck in your room/hotel all day. Oh, free wi-fi too :)

Room Tip: try to avoid a room facing the parking lot, unless you don't want to walk far from your car.
