Recent guest reviews

The staff of this hotel went out of their way to take care of all the guests during a very scary time as we evacuated for Hurricane Irma. We were super impressed with their performance and dedication. The suites are very comfortable giving us the ability to cook and have our own groceries. Above all the number one thing is that they accommodate it our 2 puppies. It was great to know that during this scary time we were together. Thank you to the wonderful staff of the hotel. Great job!!

I stayed in this property for two nights about a week ago. I was in town for business and was eager to check in to my room after flying in to town. I was greeted by a lovely young lady named Bianca. She was friendly, pleasant and efficient. I am a Marriott Rewards member and was pleased to receive an upgrade. I truly appreciate service with a smile, and this young lady has it down! To add icing to the cake, my phone rings about 20 minutes after I got settled into the room. It was Bianca checking to see if I found the room to be satisfactory. Can we please have more employees like this? Now I will say that everyone else I encountered was also pleasant, but she was a stand out for me. Property was clean, although the sofa in my room could use replacing. Not a huge deal though. I will definitely stay there again the next time I'm in town for business.

We've stayed at the Residence Inn before and we're impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of their staff. We stayed with them after Irma to await power to be restored to our home. As usual, the staff was outstanding and did everything they could to make sure we were comfortable. The breakfasts were great and the kitchen team was great. I can't say enough good things about the team and our stay.

I am currently staying at the Residence Inn as an evacuee from Miami due to hurricane Irma. From the moment we desperately booked the hotel and Richard helped us over the phone, to the moment Jaylee at the front desk helped us extend our stay since it wouldn't be safe to checkout today, this hotel has been so welcoming and catered to everyone wonderfully. Starting with the room, it's super comfortable and has 2 separate rooms with a sleeper sofa in the living room plus a full kitchen. All the items we brought in our cooler went right into the fridge and we've been able to cook and feel more at home. They have been providing delicious breakfast and tonight even a "movie nite" with food, snacks, and even sangria, while playing different family movies all evening. I can't say enough wonderful things about the place we came to escape a major hurricane, that made us feel more at home during a very scary time.

This hotel has everything that you could want in a hotel stay! From the comfortable room, to the breakfast of champions... we found out that we could live in this hotel! Within walking distance of a block you have a Mexican restaurant, pizza joint, IHOP and much more!

This hotel has consistently great staff---from the front desk, to housekeeping, to the breakfast attendant. All were super polite and friendly. We were there for 3 nights and I noticed that because each staff person smiled at everyone each time they encountered anyone that it was contagious and that the guests started smiling at each other too. What a smart way to create such a positive atmosphere---and it all starts with a smile for everyone :) Everything else (room, cleanliness, and food) was great too!

I was able to get a room, last minute. Staff is amazing, very attentive. My room was clean, smelled good. Appliances fully functioning. Best night's sleep ive had in a long time. This hotel is within walking distance to a lot of good eats. Hot breakfast was great.

Near UCF campus, great location if you need to be attending college events. stayed there for access to Sharkespeare Theater . performance Anthony and Cleopatra . excellent free breakfast, several social hour event s Monday and Tuesday. area restaurants are great options. a bit north of Orlando and some extra time to get to Disney, Sea World, Universal , highways to access.

I took a large group of women to a conference at the arena around the corner from the hotel. I dealt with Sarah from booking to check out and everything ran super smooth. We checked in earlier than anticipated and she was ready for us. There was ample staff to assist us all, and they were all very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was great and able to serve us all quickly and early in the morning. I can't say enough about the impressive organization. Every detail was thought through and proactively done before we asked- they even brought in a shuttle service for the weekend as an added bonus option. I travel often leading large groups and have never had this smooth of an experience. I will definitely be coming back here to this hotel again.

This hotel is quite nice. It looks to have been updated within the past few years. When checking in, the front desk clerk was quite accommodating finding a room that was away from any distractions. We were in Orlando for medical reasons and desired a room in which my husband could spend his first day of recovery with minimal interruptions. We couldn't be happier with the location. The staff has been accommodating and unobtrusive. The evening social was nice (for me, anyway). The breakfast was far nicer than expected with fresh scrambled eggs (regular and yolkless), regular and chicken sausage, fruit, yogurt, breakfast sandwich ingredients, and more. This property is clean, modern, quiet, staffed by excellent people, and close to the simulation and training business hub (as well as UCF). I highly recommend this hotel.
