Homewood by name Homely by nature.
"Just came home from a fantastic holiday for three weeks at this great Hotel it is very clean with rooms cleaned daily with fresh towels too . Breakfast every morning which helped you set up for the day before the parks .And even have a curtsy bus supplied for all the parks . They have a evening meal Monday till Thursday free FROM 5 till 7 with free wine and beer to compliment you're meal it is a wonderful place to stay. And the staff are very helpful especially the manager Paulie he interacts with every guest and goes out of his way to make you're holiday the best you can have at their hotel i could not fault this hotel at all and i definitely will be back Thank you Paulie and all the staff at the Home wood suits you made our holiday one to remember.

"This is a fantastic hotel and great value for money. It is spotlessly clean, the staff are friendly and efficient and the suites are fabulous. The sitting room has a settee (which becomes a bed settee), armchair, coffee table and large TV. The kitchen area has a hob, large American fridge, microwave, coffee machine and even a dish washer. The bedroom is large and there is yet another TV! The bed is so so comfortable. There is a fairly large wardrobe and safe. The wash area is in the bedroom and the bathroom is alongside the bedroom. All in all the suite is well laid out and the value is second to none. The buffet breakfast is excellent and the evening food , wine and beer a welcome added extra. This is just an amazing hotel and at under Â£60 a night for all the family - fantastic! I am going back again for the third time, this summer."

"We have stayed at this hotel twice in the last 3 years and are going back this year, Everything about this hotel makes it ideal for a holiday to florida as the staff are really friendly and the food is very good and also free in the evenings mon-thurs and they also lay on free beer and wine, Where in England would you find that ! It is perfectly situated as it sits back from the main road but is only a 5 min walk and you are surrounded by resturants and shops. Free transport to most attractions is available so my hire car sits in the car park most of the week until we drive off to the coast to rest after a long great week of adventure parks. Thanks to all at the Homewood Suites for making our holiday so special and we look forward to seeing you all again in at the end of April."

"We recently returned from a 2 week stint in Orlando and the Homewood suites are excellent!!! Situated exactly halfway along International drive it is in an excellent reach of everything Orlando has to offer. We were minutes away from Disney(free hotel shuttles). Universal (fee shuttle), and all other parks - SeaWorld etc. Walking distance to over 100 restaurants! We booked B&B and the breakfast was excellent - we even got free dinners Monday through Thursday ! The rooms are large and spacious and we had a one bedroom suite with TV in bedroom and lounges, kitchen and all the extras - including the biggest, softest bed I have ever seen It was a wonderful place to get home to each night - can highly recommend!!"

"Found this hotel through CRSHotels.com for the great rate of $99 per room per night!!! Talk about a bargain, for this we had a suite with self catering facilities. The suite consisted of a bedroom with 2 large double beds, a bathroom, and vanity area then a separate lounge with a pull out sofa-bed, dining area and kitchen with refrigerator, micro, full stove etc. The room was very tastefully decorated, our's benefiting from a view over the lovely pool area. Despite this hotel having self catering facilities they still provided a full breakfast each day. This had a wide variety from cereals to bacon/sausage etc they even had a waffle machine for you to make yourself a fresh hot waffle and cream!! If you stay during the week they have free food and beer/wine in the early evening. We only stayed for 1 weekday but the food was lovely! We would totally recommend this hotel, the staff were friendly, the facilities were great and the whole place was very clean, plus if you need it they have free internet access in the reception area.

"Excellent hotel. Complimentary breakfast and evening buffets on some evenings. Complimentary transport to Universal, Disneyworld SeaWorld. Good price. Ideal location on International Drive. All staff bend over backwards to help you. Ideal for non drivers as well as drivers for major tourist attractions. Great rooms with clean comfortable bed and a small kitchen area. Separate lounge from bedroom on all rooms. Nice but clean pool. Cannot fault this hotel one bit. A credit to all that work here."

"The only negative points are the size of the pool (small and crowded but there are other hotel pools close by) and the location at the quieter end of I drive. Rooms were clean and with good quality furnishings with huge king bed and sofa bed as well, also a reclining armchair. Very comfortable fleece blankets and efficient air con. Cooker, fridge with ice maker, microwave, hair dryer, two TVs!, free wireless internet access if you have a laptop! In room safe for a small local charge. The complimentary breakfast was great, lots of choice hot & cold. Several nights a week they offer a complimentary "Welcome Home" buffet as well, usually burgers, hot dogs, salads etc but great for a quick fill up. Also a free glass or two of beer or wine. Overall we were very pleased with this hotel."

"Did not want to leave it has too be the best place i have ever stayed in. I would think the bad reports must be a one off as i am very fussy. We used to get breakfast and take it back to our room as it was quite busy,the staff were very friendly,i don't have a bad word to say about it."

Nice hotel for families
"My wife, daughter and myself stayed April 11 - 17. We stayed in a 1 bedroom mini-suite. Nice for the adults to have the privacy of a separate bedroom with door to "watch Tv" alone and have the kid on the fold out couch in the living area where there was a 2nd tv. Room was clean, housekeeping did a good job. No complaints about the comfort of the fold out couch either. The king size bed was very comfy. Shower was good, plenty of hot water and good pressure. A big plus -- the huge free buffet breakfast every day. Everything from cereal to waffles, eggs, bagels, sausages, muffins, juice, fruit. Sorry to say we never made it back to the hotel in time for the 5-7pm managers reception (see bus schedule below) where I heard there was free beer, wine, hot snacks. Not many bad points about this hotel other than for us we should've stayed closer to Disneyworld. While this hotel is closer to Universal our trip was to go to Disney. The free bus shuttle to Disney was about a 30 min ride and while the morning shuttles were convenient the return trips didn't give you much choice - leaving Disney at 6:30, 8:30 or 10:30pm. Cost of a taxi to/from Disney 30 bucks one way! There are many restaurants, a quickie-mart & liquor store within easy walking distance. The room also had a kitchenette if you wanted to buy stuff at the quickie mart and cook it yourself."

Wonderful! The one bad review must be a mistake!
"I think the person from New York (April 18, 2004)who said "Don't stay there" must have confused this hotel with the one he/she stayed at. It is possible since there are many Homewood Suites in Orlando. We stayed there last year in April 2003 in it was absolutely great. Very clean, very good staff, hotel practically new. I looked at everything (carpet, furniture, cleanliness) and I did not see anything wrong. The pool is great, clean, etc., plenty of towels, maid service great, very polite & helpful staff. We could walk to Goodings (on International Drive) to do our grocery shopping. We had decided not to rent a car and use the shuttle which is fine, always on time; however, they must do something about "Grumpy" (as everyone nicknamed him), the driver from the shuttle service they use (mind you, maybe he's not there anymore!). But if you rent a car, that won't be a problem. I would go back without hesitation. Bye from Montreal, Canada."

Good Value, Great Location
"I Stayed at the Homewood Suites from 19-26 March 2004.My suite was 117 on the ground floor beside the pool entrance and facing the exit door to the outside car park.The room was clean and spacious however the wardrobe space was limited but this was not a major problem.The room was cleaned every day and bed linens changed every other day. I only had one problem and that was that the hair dryer was not working but once i brought it to the attention of the staff it was replaced.Hotel is in a good location on I-Drive a 5min walk from Pointe Orlando and surrounded by restraunts.The I-RIDE Trolley and Lynx Bus stops just outside the property on the main road.All in all this is a middle class value for money property in a good location especially if you do not hire a car.What it is not is a 5* hilton.After a graet stay i will be returning agin later in the year and would recommend the hotel to anyone."
