Overnight by the airport

Like staying in this complex as its easy access from the airport when you get in late at night. The hotel was clean, check-in a breeze since we prepaid.. Room was comfortable. Coffee and tea in the lobby 24 hours. The breakfast was typical, waffles, sausage, grits, cereal, fruit cup, certainly adequate for our needs. Lots of restaurants within walking distance or driving without getting back on any highway.

Monday - Friday business stay

I've stayed at this location previously for business. I typically visit the Orlando area 3-5 times per year and decided to start using the Country Inn & Suites as my go-to hotel as I've used them for various trips in the U.S. My previous stay at this location was May of 2014 (just a few months ago). This stay I ended up in the room directly across the hall from the room of my previous stay. The room I had this time was a double and very clean though it did seem to need a couple touch-ups here & there: little scuffs in the wall paint near the door type of thing. The room had a fridge and microwave which was nice for keeping & heating up leftovers from dining out, as well as storing groceries. Access to the Orlando Airport (MCO) is only about 8-10 minutes away and the Sanford-Orlando Airport (SFB) is about 25 minutes away. There is a 24-hour Wawa down the street, Walgreens and CVS are within 5 minutes of driving, and there are plenty of chain restaurants within an 8 minute walk of the hotel. The complimentary breakfast is typical: scrambled eggs, cereal, yogurt, fruit, waffle station, and instead of sausage, they had chopped ham this time. If you plan on using one of the 2 computers to do some printing, make sure the printers are working, have paper, and toner. One of the units had printer issues and couldn't print. Otherwise, I was able to print out some last minute work documents w/o any issues. The pool and hot tub could have used better cleaning as there was a noticeable amount of debris in both (leaves & pieces of mulch) but a couple of kids swimming made a game out of how big they're leaf piles could be and that pretty much took care of it -probably the only time I've ever been happy to see kids at a pool. There is a local pizza company, Joe's Pizza Orlando, that will "spam" your room w/ their delivery menus. I received one every day of my stay. I asked some of the locals about the quality and read reviews online -everyone said there were better options so I never bothered to call them.

one night stopover

We arrived early after our cruise and the front desk found us a room even though check-in is actually 3:00 pm. The hotel was clean and well staffed. A request for dining options nearby prompted an offer of their shuttle to drive us to area eateries, nice! We would definitely stay here again; close to the airport, and breakfast was included.

Orlando Vacation

We had a red-eye flight and got to Orlando at 9am. We got no sleep on the plane. We went to the hotel to see if they would let us check in early so we could get a few hours of sleep. She understood our predicament and let us check in. The hotel is very clean and quiet. The free hot breakfast was great. Only problem was if you go around 8am all the tables are taken as there is limited seating. But that was not a problem. They saw that and opened the conference room so guests can sit down and eat.

Awesome stay at Country Inn & Suites by Carlson

The room was very clean and neat, me and my husband absolutely loved it there. It is very calm and relaxing place, has a great pool, where we spent most of the time during our stay. They serve breakfast and have computer and printer available if you need to print out your itenarary. It was very convenient for us, because we needed the printer to print out some stuff.

Be careful

The hotel is conveniently located amongst a lot of other hotels but be careful if they give you a room on the west side of the hotels. The planes start coming in early and they open the pool to screaming kids at 6AM-why, I have no idea. So sleep on that side of the hotel does not come easily to those in the bedrooms. Breakfast might have been good but they ran out of waffle mix before we got down there. One would think they would have this down by now-look at your occupancy and plan ahead.

Spacious and Close to Airport

The rooms at Country Inn and Suites are spacious as the name "suites" implies. They are very clean. Most importantly the beds and pillows are great. One thing I liked a lot is that the extra blankets were not poly but natural fabric. The pool and hot tub are quite big but the pool deck could use umbrellas as there is no natural shade. There is no worry about airplane noise.

Pretty bad experience

First let me note that the receptionist was top notch, first class and the computer availability was very helpful. The problem was noise. walls are thin and windows seem to be single glazed. We could hear everything going on in the adjacent room and it was the first time in more than 30 years and some dozens of hotel stays that I have had to bang on the wall to get some quiet. Outside noises were also annoying despite being on the 6th floor. aircraft take-offs were especially annoying. Also the room a/c came on frequently and sounded like the bearings were shot. Sleep was interrupted frequently and we departed very unrested. Breakfast was not at the level we expected for the room price and not comparable to other recent experiences. I would recommend avoiding this hotel
