I enjoyed thoroughly staying at the hotel with my son, it felt safe and clean.

The staff were really nice and accommodating. The cleaning crew needs some training. When we arrived there was hair on our toilet and in our shower. We asked the front desk to have the bathroom recleaned (she was super helpful and apologetic) but after they cleaned it was still dirty. Rooms need updated, the furniture has stains and it’s very outdated. Price was great and the location to universal was awesome.

Easy check in-friendly staff. Rooms were exceptional, although the bathroom could have been a bit cleaner as could have the tables in the sitting room portion. Plenty of space without being on top of each other. Planning my next stay in February.

Absolutely gorgeous inside and out. Complimentary breakfast and dinners. Beautiful pool and out side area I would recommend this hotel to any one staying in the area.

While this property is not as ritzy as some others in the area, the price is good, the staff is excellant and the location is fantastic if you are headed to Universal or want to be close to restaurants, shopping, etc... I will stay at this property again and would recommend it to family and friends!

The room was very clean. The WiFi was a little difficult to get on. I liked having a kitchen in the room, came in handy. There was some rowdy people on my floor, but for the money spent, it was well worth it.

Extremely helpful staff. Checked in late, had room ups but they solved it right there. Called the rooms to make sure we were all settled it. The breakfast is great.

Great spot -- close to everything and easy on/off I4. Wonderful staff. I've always found Homewood Suites to be a great value that is definitely the case here.

We had the front desk call for a taxi three times, and each time the service they called was significantly more than when we called a Yellow Cab for the way back ($45 vs $37 to Disney World, $45 vs $43 to the Airport, $10 vs $6 to Universal Studios). Also we shouldn't have even needed to have taken a taxi to and from Universal Studios but their shuttle was full on the way there, so they wouldn't issue us a pass for the way back either. So we had to pay for our own transportation both ways, which was kind of stupid, because we would have taken the earliest shuttle home, which likely would have had plenty of room.

Excelent experience staff and the most quality place of good personal working. Every time that I decide to go again I will stay on this place. I recomended to every one who decide to make vacations in Orlando

The room was cheap and perfectly nice/comfortable. Lots of space, 2 big TVs, full kitchen, etc. Best of all, free beer in the lobby on weekday evenings.

I chose this hotel because it offered one bedroom suites. The room was small but we only stayed one night and it was not an inconvinience. My 14 and 16 year old daughters sleeped in the livingroom sleeper sofa and it was small for them. It had a full kitchen with large refrigerator, micro and stove, perfect if your going to spend a few days and want to eat in. Universal studios-Island of Adventure and City Walk are 5 minutes away. I would go again but would get a two bedroom suite.

Great hotel, close to Universal. Not exactly walking distance in 100 degree weather (1 mile), but convenient none the less. We rented a car so did not use their shuttle, but it exists. It goes TO Universal three times in the AM and returns three times in the evening, the last shuttle leaving Universal at 8:50. Since the park closed at 9 while we were there, that wouldn't have been ideal timing for us since we ate dinner at City Walk after park closing more than once. The rooms are spacious, very clean, quiet and well-appointed. Our room had two queen beds plus a separate living/kitchen area. The living room had a pull out couch. Both had a large, flat panel TV. There is a two burner cooktop, full sized fridge, microwave and coffee pot. Dishes, pots and pans were included. There was not a pitcher for water, nor ice cube trays, but we got by :) Each floor has a laundry (we didn't use it so I am not sure about costs). There is a work out room, arcade room, plus an area with two computers and a printer--great for boarding passes. Free wi-fi is in all of the rooms and lobby. The included breakfast offered eggs--plain scrambled and with either vegies, cheese or meat depending upon the day, sausage or bacon, cereal, breads, muffins, yougurt, fruit, juice and coffee plus waffles, pancakes or french toast (varied by the day). Lots of food, and freely replenished up until the 10 o'clock closing. Honestly, the nicest part of it all was the staff. From check-in to check-out, everyone was genuinely helpful (we were allowed to check in early and offered late check out when we shared that we were leaving in the evening). Was it perfect? No, of course not. The rug near the bathroom had the slightest musty odor. The pool is small and adjacent to the parking lot. Would I stay there the next time I visit Universal? Absolutely!

Very friendly and courteous staff

Great place to stay while visiting Universal Studios. Staff was great and friendly!! Great breakfast and convienent dinners during the week making life easier on us. No trying to figure out were to go.

We went to wet n wild which was across the street and then universal which was a five minute ride. The hotel had everything i needed to enjoy my stay. one of the best hotels to stay at in orlando when you talk about price location and relaxing

I had brag about the Homewood suite located near Wright Patterson AFB in Ohio that I convinced my wife it was the best deal for this first trip to Disney, boy was I wrong and totally disapointed. Ariving late at night, the staff check in person was not very friendly or helpful. One door leading to the outside was broken were anyone could come into the hallways from the street and into where the rooms where. Our Room appeared to have a strange odar. Noise levels were high for this time of night. Breakfast was also disappointing with food not very tastefull, especially the eggs. Ohio Homewood Suites had flat screen tv's also.

I went to Orlando for the new Harry Potter attraction at Universal Studios and this hotel was really close to it. We took a free shuttle that the hotel offers to the park each morning. I have been to many hotels in my life but I have never seen a better breakfast than this hotel had, and it was free! Other hotels have few brands of cereal and cheap bagels but Homewood Suites has fresh hot foods like eggs, sausage, bacon, waffles, and coffee along with cereal and morning pastries. It was the best breakfast that I've ever eaten in a hotel, it is even better than what I eat at home most days! After we got back from Universal Studios in the evening we enjoyed using the fitness room for some exercise (not that walking around a theme park all day wasn't exercise enough!). We also enjoyed evening swims in the hotels' pool and jacuzzi. One last thing that I liked was that they had a basketball court if you want to shoot some hoops which I took full advantage of.
