Recent guest reviews

So I checked into sunsoil motel and the desk attendant was nice.. it was late night so it looked decent from the outside! As I made my way towards the room on the 4th floor on the other side of the motel it was dark and I couldn't see much. I got into the room and unlock the door and had to give it a hard push because the door was warped and stucked to the frame... turned the lights on in the room and to my disappointment it was a lot smaller than i imagine .. the bathroom was small and the shower was one of those flat surface showers that didn't have a border between the toilet and shower, so when you shower the water would just go all over the place .. the bed was nicely made until you pull the covers back and discovered there's stains on the bed.. I'm one to travel with my own flat sheets and pillow case for reasons like this... the wifi at this place was barely wifi.. you would think it's running on dial up. I called to the front desk and he simply said there's a lot of people using the wifi so that's why it's so slow.. all in all I would never come back to this motel.. Oh and you're charged for the breakfast thing they offered there! Even if you don't eat it!!

Nice, friendly staff held luggage as we were too early to check in. Quick check-in when ready. Nice grounds and noticed night security guard walking grounds nightly. Nice room and pool area. Convenient vending and pool bar. The internet sucked all the time during our 3 night stay. Our next door neighbors were loud and either fighting, talking or laughing loudly all night. Very convenient to travel I-trolly to get everywhere. The stop is just a block away and you can purchase tickets at Congo Golf right next to the stop. Great value for that.

It feels like the floor hasn't been wiped for ages. The room is dirty too. You can only find breads, muffins and cereal in the "continental breakfast ".

Beds suck they aren't very comfortable other then that everything was good

Friendly staff, pleased with continental breakfast

Only stayed there to sleep, was cozy and comfortable. Didn't use amenities or pool.

The room was clean, bed and pillows weren't spectacular but can't complain about them. Rooms are updated. Front desk is usually really nice, this time the guy wasn't very friendly, but only there for one night not really worried about it. Breakfast ends at 9:30 which stinks if your a person who stays up late. So can't comment on the breakfast. For us it's a perfect one night stay.

Pillow cases smelling bad on both beds. But the rest ok, cleaning arou d the pool ok

This isn't a hotel or resort but a Motel. Arrived late for check in and still had to wait 15 min to get a room. Room was dark, strong mold smell, dirty carpet, smelly pillows, shower curtain in the year 2016 shouldn't be allowed in paid for accommodations it's not sanitary. TV didn't turn on had to be unplugged. AC unit is too cold for small room and so loud it was impossible to sleep while its was on. Ants in sink, old furniture and lamps. Breakfast is horrible with undercooked doughnuts pancakes and waffles. They do offer bread and juices variety. Not really sure why I paid an additional resort fee of $9 as this is far from being a resort and claiming free parking & free wifi but turn charging for it is considered to be consumer misleading in my opinion. I needed this room for 1 night while visiting Universal so location is decent however further down on international drive is less crowded. Outlet is close by also. Other than that with so many choices of hotels in Orlando I by mistake chose this one and used my orbits bucks on it plus added $40 out of pocket which honestly wasn't worth it. Simple and clean was what the deceiving pics show but it was dirty and smelly instead. Overpriced too. Book somewhere else.

I had high hopes for this hotel based on the reviews from a reputable website however, after the first night my hopes were quickly diminished. Upon arriving in our room, we discovered that it was infested with ants, so I spoke with the concierge who reassigned us to another room. The following day, we noticed there were ants in that room as well. Once again, I confronted the concierge who said he would mention this immediately to the housekeeping manager who would report back to us. We also noticed that housekeeping had done a poor job of cleaning the room, as there was still hair from a prior guest in the shower, and the floor had dirt spots (looked like sand). The following day, I asked for an update from the concierge regarding the housekeeping since the housekeeping manager had not gotten back to us. I also commented that the ants were beginning to be a big problem as we had to pack our things every night and morning to prevent them from infesting our things. The concierge said he would contact the housekeeping manager again and have her go to our room to inspect, and she would be in touch with us. He offered us a chance to once again move to another room, but by this time it was getting ridiculous since we did not want to keep moving rooms only to find the same situation. This saga continued up until the last day of our stay where we noticed that the room had been sprayed with insect killer. Our room was still dirty though (poor vacuuming and dusting). At this point, I decided to speak with the hotel manager personally to ask for some sort of refund for the inconvenience. Upon speaking with her, she was very rude and belligerent with me citing that they had done the right thing and offered to move us to another room. She missed the point completely. I would have been satisfied if the hotel management would have been more engaged rather than so oblivious and inattentive to our complaints. I do not think we asked for much, just some courtesy and attention to our issues. I am very disappointed with this establishment, and do not plan on staying here in the future. I would avoid this hotel and pursue an alternate option, as there are many on international drive of similar price.

Really clean and close to everything I have booked here twice and now it's my Orlando hotel.

The shower and curtain we're all moldy. But staff was friendly and grounds we're clean and kept well.

I would have rated this much higher if I didn't run into cockroach in my room which was absolutely unacceptable. The staff was helpful and upgraded the room for us right away. The location is great. Breakfast is complimentary but very basic: cereals, fruits, toasts/donuts/pancake, and drink. No eggs or sausage which I prefer. The room is comfortable.

We rented two rooms. I had to kill a bug when I came into my room, but it is Florida so it's expected. The Staff was amazingly nice and Sunsol should be proud of who they have hired. There weren't too many frills. The free breakfast was nice and simple. The pool looked nice, but didn't have time to enjoy it. It was a simple stay for one night. Once again, the highlights of the stay were the location and the staff. I would stay there again.

The hotel had great staff, great location & a great pool! In walking distance to most of the greatest Florida attractions. Such as universal theme parks & wet & wild. The rooms were comfortably designed & had mini fridge & microwave inside. Only bad thing I have to say is the beds were extremely uncomfortable. You can feel the springs from the bed, But overall great place.

To be honest I had never heard nor seen this hotel before so I was kind of iffy about booking it. But I will definitely be booking with them again. It was in a great location, rooms were nice and clean.. almost brand new.. staff was very nice, and bed were comfy. I have not one complain about them!

Room was wet and the mattress smelling like urines. I do not recommend anyone to use this hotel.

The price for this hotel was great! I didn't expect it to be as nice as it was based upon what I paid. When I arrived at the hotel the staff were all very nice, the room was decorated very modern (newly renovated), bed was very comfortable, and everything else was in great condition. Free breakfast, very simple but it's free and still tastes good. Took the shuttle from the hotel to the park for free and the location was only a couple of miles away from universal! I'll be returning

I would have expected to pay a lot more for this resort. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable and modern and the outdoor amenities including a pool, kids play area and fountain don't disappoint! The property is lovely and meticulously maintained. This is maybe a 5-minute drive from Universal Studios, great location! There is shuttle service to and from the theme parks and breakfast in the Splash Bar every morning. We loved it here and would definitely stay again.
