“Great home from home :)”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

My partner, 9 yr old daugher and I stayed at the homewood on i-drive at the beginning of November for 14 nights.

Location is excellent, just set back a little from i-drive, only a few minutes walk. This is in a fab area, nice part of i-drive with plenty choice of restaurants and entertainment right on the door step. This includes many chains such as Bahama Breeze, Denny's, Millers Ale House (fab!) plus many others. Also close to Pointe Orlando shopping area which offers some lovely restaurants and cool shops as well as a cinema and bars. Being on i-drive means there are plenty of options for transportation if not driving such as lynx bus, i-trolley or the free hotel shuttle to all the theme parks.

Suites are well appointed, clean and comfortable, basically everything you need for a relaxing stay. The beds are huge, and pillows are the best I have ever slept on, just wish I could bring one home! The kitchenette has a full size fridge,microwave, hob, dishwasher and coffee machine, making it possible to whip up lunch, snacks or meals if you are beat from the parks.

The hotel offers a lovely breakfast each morning, items vary but generally include some type of sausage or bacon, cereal, toast, eggs, oatmeal, waffles, donuts, fruit, yogurt, tea, coffee, juice etc. Its great way to fill up for the day and keep food costs down. They also offer a managers reception mon - thurs from 5pm until approximately 7pm, where items such as hotdogs or jacket potato as well as free wines, beers and soft drinks are available free of charge.

Staff are friendly and helpful and always there to offer assistance. I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 week stay and was sad to leave this wonderful hotel. I have stayed in many hotels in Orlando including Disney hotels, but this outshines them all. Should I return to Orlando this hotel will definately be my first choice.





The hotel offers breakfast each morning which sets

First stay in Orlando as a family. Two adults and two year old. In laws flew in later and booked in this hotel for a few days. When I made the reservation I accidentally booked a smoking room through Expedia. I called and tried to change the room and was told that they would put a note on it but can't guarantee. I was overjoyed at the non-smoking room and quick check in.

Pluses - free Internet, breakfast and parking. One bedroom suites were spacious with full size fridge, microwave, pull out sofa and dishwasher. Love the full size fridge! Large safe in room to hold just about anything. They serve a hot breakfast not just continental. Sure you may get bored with it but you can cook yourself or walk right outside to Denny's or other restaurant. They do change it up every other day or so and try to keep everything topped up. Line-ups and seating is the only real issue at meal time. You can't beat waking up, grabbing breakfast and heading to WDW or Seaworld. Saves time and money. My son is a picky eater to boot so grabbing tiny bits of food at the breakfast bar for him to try is priceless really. We made it back for complimentary "snack" one afternoon - it was chicken stir fry. It was salty but probably a good thing since we were sweating all day.

We had a rental car but did try out the local tram one day for fun. Tram is just outside the hotel. Not so fun when the trams are packed trying to get back to the hotel with a child and stroller in tow.

Nice and friendly staff! Will be back for sure.

Very nice hotel well situated on I Drive, close to all major attractions.
Suites are very clean and well equipped. Plus the bonus of having an in room safe.
Complimentary breakfast and 5 a 7 will save you some $$$ more so when you have children with you.
Very friendly staff and lots of parking. Tourist Information Office a 3 minute walk from hotel.

Most of the other reviews seem to cover the basics of this hotel: Large, spacious suites that are clean, comfortable, and close to all sorts of attractions on International Drive. The rooms even have King beds, which is a plus given that many extended stay places usually have Queen beds, or smaller.

The only real downside was their wireless internet. Unfortunately, during most of my 3-night stay, their Wi-Fi ran EXTREMELY slow. 56k modem slow. Especially during peak hours (like the evening). Maybe that's not a big deal for most guests, but for me it was pretty important, and the only reason I can't give the hotel an "Excellent" rating.

Other then the issues with the internet, the property was a great stay, at an amazing price.

Was in Orlando for a trade show. This hotel is very convenient for those working or attending a trade show at the Orange County Convention Center. "free" Hot Breakfast buffet in the morning is a huge plus. Lots of restaurants/bars within walking distance. The suites provide two rooms, fridge, microwave, stove...so perfect for a family or for those that dont want to eat out every meal..good way to save money.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the pool

WE would definitely come back. The customer service is outstanding and they go way beyond your expectations to make sure you have an amazing stay! Tatiana went out of her way to make sure our stay was comfortable and welcoming. She truly is a wonderful employee and we had an excellent time due to the outstanding service she provided.

The room was plush and comfortable, always clean and the breakfasts were fantastic. I so appreciate the care and personal attention we received during our stay and I owe a HUGE thanks to Tatiana! Thank you for everything. We had a magical time at Disney and we enjoyed a fabulous stay at the Homewood Suites. Thank you Tatiana!

Stayed many years ago on a previous visit to the Mouse, thought we'd try it again. Only 15 minutes from Orlando International. Still well up to expectations. Very good space with a living room with kitchen area, good-sized bedroom with separate washbasin and wardrobe area, and bathroom with shower and loo. Pluses - free buffet breakfast so you can stoke up for a long day at the parks, and Monday-Thursday a free 'welcome home' snack - pasta or salads or similar in the early evening. Good location - plenty of places to eat nearby, plus other entertainment at Pointe Orlando, and two minutes driving brings you to I-4 to get to the parks.
Recommended.
