“Big room, good breakfast, bad pillows.”
Reviewed July 26, 2011

Stayed at the hotel for one night while visiting some friends. The room was big and perfect for a family of three since it had 2 queen beds. The only complaints I have was a stain on the sofa and uncomfortable pillows (too small). The included breakfast was generous with a self-serve waffle station, bagels and fresh fruits.

This CS was a very nice place. The staff was friendly and helpful. I had read some reviewers complaining about music from the BBQ place across the street. I could hear some music on Friday night, but I didn't hear any at any other time. I was able drown out the music I heard on Friday by simply turning my fan on.

The breakfast was ok, nothing to write home about.

My biggest complaint is about the wifi. I had a room at the end of the hall on the 2nd floor and neither my iPhone nor my iPad could get a signal. In addition, the 3G signal was almost nonexistent.

All in all I would stay here again

I am traveling often all over the world and the company pays usually for high end hotels for my associates and I, we happened to be to visiting UCF research center and stayed for 2 nights in the comfort suits. The level of service we have received from the front desk manager Denise Moore was awesome, professional and was up to par with the service we usually receive in the 4 seasons and the Ritz Carlton. We are very demanding customers and she has addressed all our questions and requests in the most expedient, professional, and courteous way. I will highly recommend this property.

We were traveling to Florida to watch the launch of the Space Shuttle Atlantis on STS-129 and then to do some sightseeing in the area, so the location of this hotel was good for us. We had read previous reviews about loud music on a patio near this hotel, so we initially asked for a room on the opposite side from the pool, thinking the noise would be from the pool patio. Mistake! The music is actually generated across the street at a BBQ restaurant (only on Friday and Saturday evenings). So, after realizing this, we asked to be moved to the pool side of the hotel and the staff was extremely accommodating and understanding.

This is a 100% smoke-free hotel and the room was fresh and comfortable. There was a microwave and refrigerator in our 'suite,' and the two beds were both very comfortable. Linens were fresh, the carpet was relatively new and it was nice to also have a couch and small table in our suite. The clock radio also provided an mp3 hookup.

The bathroom was clean and the towels were mostly brand new. The shower worked properly, with an adjustable spray head. There was also a hair dryer, iron and ironing board and small coffee-maker.

We found the breakfast to be typical, with three kinds of cereal, waffle maker, yogurt, boiled eggs, bagels/pastries, juices (apple and orange), biscuits and gravy, and bacon. They also provided omelets stuffed with cheese, but they were a little overdone. They had three kinds of coffee: decaf, supreme and dark and the dark was not bitter - it was very good.

We stayed four nights and found the hotel to be very quiet - if a room on the correct side of the hotel is chosen! We would definitely stay in the same place again.

The purpose of our trip was to visit UCF. Our group included myself with my two daughters 13 & 17 and another 17 year old with her mom. We were also on our way to visit UF & FSU afterwards, so we were looking for a spacious room we could share that was not too expensive and included breakfast. Comfort Suites fit the bill! We found it to be quite spacious--2 queen beds with plenty of walking space between the beds and the dresser and a small 1/2 divider wall with a sofa sleeper. The bathroom was also quite wide and roomy for 5 females wanting to shower and apply make-up in the morning : ) We had a coffee maker, microwave and small fridge in the room which was perfect for storing water, sodas and making popcorn. Breakfast was decent and helpful in getting us going along. Coffee, OJ, danish, bagels, small plain egg omelets & sausage, cereals, waffle maker. They change the selection as far as eggs & meats each day I think. The room was clean, so was our bathroom, and beds were comfortable. Front desk is VERY basic at best. I asked for extra towels and was asked to come to the front desk to pick them up. But I didn't go here expecting a service oriented hotel. I just wanted a clean place with alot of space, and we did get that. We adults did walk across to the barbecue place for a drink in the evening and it was quiet at that time, but it was also a Monday evening. This is basically a hotel to lie your head down at the end of the night--no frills, but very comfortable. Overall, a good experience.

The hotel was wonderful, the personnel great, the breakfast offered was a good selection but there is a BBQ restaurant next door that locals told me is a great place to eat but on Friday night they had a live band OUTSIDE ON A PATIO that played until two in the morning! This was not good! Saturday night it was raining so no outside band!
