Rundown hotel

I have had good experience with Country Inn before but this hotel was awful. Very run down. The room had a powerful smell of air freshener pumping into it - obviously an attempt to mask another smell. It was not very clean and had peeling wall paper and water stains. Not a well cared for property. There are a number of other hotels in the immediate area, I would suggest trying one of those.

Cute, and Comfortable

My father and I needed a hotel close to all the action yet also close to my college visits, Country Inn & Suites was the choice. I'll admit I had my doubts about the hotel at first but when I got there they all went away. The Be Our Guest Complimentary Breakfast was a major plus! I loved the waffle maker!

Try the fish restaurant just around the corner. A bit pricey, but very nice food.

Nice Place

This was a nice Hotel - Pretty much what one expects for a Country Inn, but that is good. The hotel was in OK condition - nothing really negative but not outstanding. The breakfast was pretty good - it was kind of a zoo getting food, but there was always a place to sit. The breakfast would run out of some items, but people came to bring more eventually. The front desk staff were really nice. The location was great - very near to International Drive and Universal Studios. It was easy to get to other places from there. The pool was nice - nothing really special, but it was clean and refreshing.

Fish Bones is a nearby restaurant. It was much pricier than we expected, but it was kind of a high-end restaurant. The food was good. If you want a family-priced restaurant you will need to drive somewhere.

Nice Stay

Very nice stay for one night... hit the theme parks all day and its a short drive to the hotel, very convenient and easy to find. Staff went out of their way to get us a parking spot by moving their own vehicles... very nice of them! Would recommend staying here.

Great Stay

Just stayed one night, arrived late and left early so no chance to check out the amenities. Room was clean and comfortable. The staff was courteous and professional. Free breakfast was good. Will definitely stay here again.

Family fun time

we enjoyed our stay in Orlando. There was always plenty of food at breakfast and it was hot. It was very nice to have a place to buy park tickets right in the hotel and they were knowledgeable about the different parks. The hotel was convenient to several to getting to Sea World and Universal Studios which we did both. And visiting International Drive.

Great Location, Great Value

The hotel is located on Universal Boulevard, which is one road past International Drive. It was an excellent location without being on the very busy International Drive. The staff was very friendly, especially the breakfast staff. The room was clean and the air conditioning was kickin'. The bed was comfortable and the shower had great water pressure! Great value!
