Our stay was pretty good We stayed for a 6 days and they came and cleaned half way through our stay which was perfect timing The rooms are good sized and the location is perfect

I only have a few complaints there isn’t any vending, the furniture is a little dirty and the restaurant isn’t open all the time and they don’t offer everything listed on the Starbucks menu There also should be more towels in the family 2 bedrooms Other then that our stay was good

Had an Amazing stay at the point over the July 8th Weekend I spent my Days at Universal and it was nice to come back to rest and relax at The Point Had a nice 9 story view from my balcony

Also Enjoyed the layout of my room, Small but quaint and all I needed to enjoy my stay I highly recommend staying here PS Bathrooms are spacious and Very Relaxing to unwind in after a Long day in the Florida heat

Disappointing best describes The Point Hotel We arrived after the check-in time, but our room still wasn’t ready We were told we would receive a text when the room was ready, but we never did

When we finally made it to the room hours after the check-in time, we were impressed with the size of the suite, but otherwise disappointed It had not been cleaned well There was soup scum in the shower and tub and dirty floors Our kids immediately noticed how dirty their feet got just from walking on the carpetThe appliances are dated, seemingly 20 years old, as were the TV’s The picture quality and channel selection was a throwback to the 90’s The refrigerator barely worked The furniture was worn The cook ware and dish ware was minimal, making it very difficult to prepare meals There was a pull out bed, but no sheets or blanket The bedding we did have was very low quality, reminiscent of a Motel 6The staff was not at all welcoming and uniformly seemed annoyed by their job Literally every staff member we interacted with seemed like they hated being there They weren’t necessarily rude, just dismissive and seemingly annoyedOverall, the stay was very disappointing and not at all what we expected based on the online photos and other reviews If you are looking for a place to stay in Orlando, our suggestion is to keep looking There are so many other options that will not disappoint

This hotel was by far one of the best Ive stayed at in years From the time I walk through the door until i reached my room The decor was modern and elegant The room actually had a warm comfortable blanket

Not cheap thin sheets The TV was large and made us feel right at home The room was clean and comfortable They had an breakfast spread any hotel would be proud of The staff was helpful and pleasant

Kyra

Cory, Val, and Sarah, the morning manager, had wonderful customer service! They were helpful, cheerful, and just overall made us feel at home The rooms were very nice, the beds are super comfortable, and everything was clean and prepared The lemon and orange infused water available 24/7 in the lobby was absolutely delicious

Erica Puckett

The staff is super friendly here! The rooms are nice, and clean We went as a family of 4 and stayed in a standard room because we knew we would be at the parks all day It was very comfortable including the beds and I usually dread sleeping on hotel beds! The staff cleaned and changed the bedding everyday

I highly suggest the pier 8 market! It was so convenient for us to grab breakfast before hitting the park and then grab a late dinner once we returned The food was great and there is something for everyone The shuttles to and from the park were also so convenient and you never waited long to get on one to or from the park The pool is great as well as the bar! Our day at Volcano bay was cut short due to weather but we came back grabbed some dinner and the kids were so happy to play in the pool on our last night, and we really enjoyed having a few drinks and relaxing at the poolsideThe bar tender was also very nice and the drinks were delicious! I highly recommend this hotel for families who can’t swing staying at the more expensive locations or just want to be frugal as we did! You definitely get the bang for your buck here!

Qui M

We stayed for my daughter’s cheer competition Rooms were average however the customer service was too notch!! The pool was extra nice and the had life guards on duty at all times Only thing I would do differently is stay in tower 1 the amenities were a little bit better on that side

The food was excellent and at an affordable price The price for the food was good and such a variety of choices They have a small game room in Tower 2 it was fun The shuttle runs every 10-15 to universal and the water park I will definitely stay again!

Cons: Bring your earplugs This has to be the noisiest hotel I have ever stayed in While I appreciate the fact that their is no carpet in the hallways or rooms making it more sanitary, they obviously did not take into consideration the noise that accompanies a family hotel

In addition, the walls seem paper thin as you can clearly hear conversations of you neighbors When planning a full day at the theme parks, you definitely want to be well-rested, yet staying here you are constantly hearing your upstairs neighbors walking, moving chairs, dropping the toilet seat, etc we also had the pleasure of listening to someone coughing up a lunch at all hours of the nightPros: great location for Universal, Islands of Adventure, and Volcano Bay Shuttle buses are clean and seem to be very running all the time A big plus considering the price of parking at the park Rooms are cute Kids enjoyed the decor Early park access While nice, we only were able to go on one ride as they have so few rides open and so many guests in the park Plus, when you didn’t sleep the night before due to the excessive noise, who wants to go that earlySummary: I wouldn’t stay here for again, even if they comped the room With so many options in Orlando, I’d rather pay a little extra to ensure we are all well rested to enjoy the parks

Updated from my last review

the place is even better now that it’s an apartment complex and not a hotel anymore It’s even cleaner and the staff is still great I only have 2 issues 1 is the light in the living room area is not bright enough to illuminate the whole room so I need to by a lamp for my bed area and 2 I can’t cook bacon or pretty much anything with out the fire detector going off because it’s too close to my kitchen and there isn’t any proper ventilation to let he smoke out and leaving windows open don’t help either and leaving my door open exposes my room and my belongings Other than that I’m good here

Fatima O’riana

I have been here a month so far and it has been wonderful I moved here from up North and checked in a day after check-in and there was no late check-in fee Raquel who works at the front desk has been amazing in helping us transition

The room looks exactly as advertised It is quiet and people generally mind their business around here It’s very family oriented and my kids love to go to the front desk for candy I really don’t have anything bad to say

kat k

They were very friendly worked with me especially when I had to work doubles clean safe environment my kids could actually go outside to play it was cool Staff is awesome I got sick out of town they were very nice to my daughters gave them space didn’t harass them i was in a coma so they were out of sorts

staff was understanding and pleasant

We had an overall great experience here Each staff member we interacted with was incredibly kind, welcoming, and helpfulWe did receive a room upgrade because of status/points and had a fun view of Islands of Adventure from the 21st floor in room 2115

Our door lock gave us a little trouble at first, but staff wasted no time in sending an engineer to help The service here was sincerely wonderful Thank you all!I think my favorite part of the room was the comfy bed After returning from a very full day of walking 20,000 steps in the parks I woke up rested and refreshedMy only complaints are minor and didn’t affect our experience that much overall 1: the halls and rooms are a little dated and would benefit from a little sprucing up For instance our loose/broken door jam, uneven flooring under carpet, fresh paint, etc This is all minor to me, and I believe was reflected in the price 2: We weren’t told about the shuttle to the parks when we checked in, or that we needed to register ahead of time to ride it I happened to see the sign at the desk, noted the time and showed up in the morning Thankfully the kind woman running that station at the desk noticed me in the morning and helped us get on the shuttle quicklyWe’d stay again and recommend it to others for the value and location!

Scott LaGraize

Don’t forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a hotel This web site will compare countless booking websites and normally will have rooms a lot cheaper compared to others! Thank me later on! This hotel is one of my favorites in the area

I have been coming here for years If you stay for a few days you won’t be let downI stayed for 2 nights with my boyfriend and had an amazing time The room was comfy, clean, and spacious We had a minor inconvenience but it was fixed very fast by Dante He was extremely helpful, informative, and very kind We had a great stay and plan on coming back soon!

Jessica Brown

The location was fantastic Staff went above and beyond to accommodate us They were great

The rooms are what you would expect for the price point It was fine for the night My only complaint – The beds were very bouncy and not super supportive Some paint peeling in the bathroom But overall the room was clean and the place was quiet (we had a room on the 18th floor) so we did not hear a lot of noise

I am currently staying at the Crowne Plaza and it is amazing I give this hotel stay a 10+++ The staff Kim and Renee at the front desk are amazing women

They went above and beyond since I have been here The hotel is exactly how it is on there website no hidden agendas it’s just perfect I will definitely stay here again every trip I make to Orlando I am having a blast They make you feel like a kid in the candy store with so much to offer you to make sure your stay at their hotel is the best stay ever Again thank you Crowne Plaza for such awesome hospitality

Jillian Perez

Loved this place It was clean had perfect space and the bed was comfortable Had a great view of the Icon aka Orlando eye

The lobby was very welcoming and the check in process was very quick and easy The staff was great Close to a lot of shops Would definitely stay here again Oh and it’s great for a quick get away, vacation or family

Paris Burbidge

Front desk staff was great, so friendly! I read through the reviews prior to booking so I was aware of it being dated, etc but the big disappointment was that our room was dirty There was leftover candy from the previous guest on the floor and a huge pepperoni stuck in some cheese under the desk- we never had pizza during our stay The rooms were comfortable enough and simple

The restaurant in the hotel is worth skipping altogether Pricey for fine food The morning we left I ordered my kids breakfast at about 8AM I called 3 different times to check on it, finally they said they were on their way up At 10AM, we finally just checked out so we could go get something to eat Quite a disappointing note to end on

A bit dated, but a good hotel The rooms were clean, the staff was nice, and the breakfast was tasty When our toilet clogged, a staff member came up right away to fix it

Unlike many of the other hotels in the area, which have a minimum check-in age of 21, this one has a minimum age of 18 This, coupled with its proximity to universal and decent prices, makes it a good choice for any younger travellers looking to visit

Ali A

If the hotel was a 2 stars hotel ( hotels categories) I would give them probably 5 or 4 starsBut, you pay a premium price for a cheap hotelIndeed, It has all things and many amenities required for a 3stars hotel class, however all in the lowest quality/quantity

A gym, but very old and with outdated equipments, half not working at all!Breakfast, yes, very simple and limitedThe worst among all is their rooms, especially restroom and showers A cracked sink with very slow drain , the tub was damaged, and toilet flush was horrible The tiles were dirty tooInside the room, Pillows were not good at all, and carpet was dirtyPositive points?A bus service to the resortThe room air conditioner was good

Faisal Ghadially

The Best Western lives up to its reputation for a low cost hotel We did not expect much However, the elevators were not working and you expect that to work at a minimum

We had to lug our bags down the stairs No assistance was offered

Beach Girl

Came here after the venue for our event was switched last minute I was a little confused about where to park before I checked in I ended up parking at the mall and walking over

I got checked in quickly at the 4:00 check-in time My room was very comfortable and cool I thought the bedding was of good quality The days I was there were long and when I did get back to the room the room was cleaned and immaculate I think the most impressive quality I found was how quiet it was throughout each night I didn’t hear any doors slamming or loud elevators I probably got the best sleep ever in a hotel hereThe fact the mall is right there is convenient to grab a quick bite or a coffee I think this hotel is a better choice than the original one , glad it worked out this way !

Cameron Rothfuss

Friendly staff in all areas of the hotel! Clean and simple rooms for a great stay! If you are in the Orlando area and need less of a resort and more of a hospitable business focused hotel then come to the Florida Hotel! Attached to the mall to keep busy or helpful for grabbing something you may have forgot on your trip Food could have been prepared with a little more attention to quality rather than speed, but they were very busy when I visited so it didn’t bother me too much Great prices and service overall!

Marvin Janzen

Excellent reception when arrived and throughout our stay Restaurants were excellentBiggest disappointment was the room cleaning

it was non existing over 3 days Had to call the front desk just to get fresh towels and a few more coffee pods Beds were never made once When I checked out the older couple beside me said the exact same thing Cleaning staff definitely needs improving Otherwise it’s a very nice hotel with perfect location Walking distance to pretty much anything you need Located between the airport and Disney so driving doesn’t cost too much

Breakfast was good Overall the hotel is clean and well maintained

Jamil Johnson

Amazing location, as long as you have a car About 15 minutes to universal, 20 minutes to Disney depending on traffic Walmart and lots of other stores and restaurants in driving distance in all directions

Pool was closed unfortunately But I did appreciate that my room was cleaned and I got fresh towels daily It’s nice this hotel has returned to normal operationsBedding was comfortable but as others have mentioned the room does have moisture With air on it feels muggy and with air off it feels sticky That is my only complaintMorning breakfast was AMAZING and I love the pancakes in under a minuteFront desk staff was AMAZING and always greeted me in the morning and when returningI will return with no question

Chynna Hale

The staff in general were so kind and generous They always greeted me with a smile and kind words My room was clean and the bed was very comfortable

Didn’t want to get out of it some mornings I stayed for 5 nights for a conference and the staff remembered me and joked with me When I asked for some housekeeping they went above and beyond what I asked for I asked for trash and the room to be swept and I came back to my surfaces wiped down and more towels in addition to what I asked I felt safe and comfortable for the duration of my stay Thank you to all!

I will definitely stay at this hotel again! To begin with, it is absolutely beautiful, very clean, and modern! Every staff member I interacted with was just as nice as can be! They provide a very generous hot breakfast, and there was even a staff member there helping everyone make their waffles 🙂 Most places these days have hardly anyone around to help with anything, so this was such a pleasant surprise! The price for the room was very reasonable as well I hope to stay here again very soon!

Don’t forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any stay They compare thousands of hotel sites and usually will have rooms much cheaper than others! You’re welcome :)! This resort is one of the best in this area

I’ve been coming here for a long time If you choose this place you definitely will love it I’m sure!My family and I have been staying at this location numerous of times since grand opening! The hotel and staff never disappoint! The cleanliness and amenities are superb! This recent stay our sink was clogged upon arrival and Shawn addressed and fixed the issue swiftly! Breakfast is always good and the grounds are well kept All staff that we came in contact with were nice and helpful! This is home away from home for us!!!

Christa O.

I was in charge of planning a trip for my coworkers and let me say from the staff to amenities we had a GREAT stay at this hotel! The room kept getting warm a little but you just have to figure out the ac system in the room The two guest representatives made me feel like a person and not a “guest” and I just loved their energy! They have such cute lobby and outside area to chill and enjoy your stay I loved how the room felt more like a suite with a couch,Closet (With a FULLL BODY MIRROR) and a microwave and a fridge

Let’s not forget the breakfast and presentation!!(need a little more season on the eggs but I won’t complain) Listen I’ve visited many hotels and this one has been definitely added to my listThank you so much for the comfortable stay 😊

Etienne Rossert

Wonderful experience there We were greeted by Oliver who was extremely helpful and accommodating He made an effort to improve the quality of our stay by changing us from a 2 beds-room to king bed-room and gave us floor options for the location of the room

The breakfast was also very well catered with coffee, juice, eggs, sausage, waffles, danishes etcI’ll definitely be going back next timeLocation wise, it’s super close to Universal studio (within 10 min) and decently close to Disney World The hotel also offers a shuttle to Universal and one for Magic Kingdom

Jennifer Mohr

running, called the front desk, and the handyman arrived within 10 minutes! (Turns out it is normal for the toilet to take a long time to refill the tank) The rooms aren’t fancy but bed was comfy for sleeping Happy to have scrambled eggs, sausage links, Mickey waffles, fresh fruit, cereal, yummy pastries, and toast for breakfast options Good location

Pool was never busy Daily room cleaning offered Only downfall was that I wish the shuttle service had more options for times/locations Luckily we had a rental car so we battled the traffic ourselves Overall, I would recommend and would stay here again

Kait Frantz

We were a little nervous about this location based on some other reviews I was staying here on a work trip and my husband and daughter played at the hotel during the day The staff was always pleasant and helpful

The breakfast area worked very well every morning and my daughter loved making frequent trips for more cantaloupe We had a room right next to the outdoor breakfast area and it worked perfectly every night for us to hang out while our daughter slept in the room It was very quiet and the housekeepers worked around my daughter’s nap schedule This place was great! It was also a great location near a Walgreens and liquor store (for when American Airlines lost our luggage) It was walking distance to multiple restaurants and Icon Park

Rana Elshamy

It’s definitely one of the best hotels we stayed in I thought the prices were very fair considering how clean, fancy, and spacious the rooms are The staff is very nice and friendly

My only complaints is the fact that there was no housekeeping during our three-night stay They only changed towels if you requested extra in the morning Also, I wish there were more breakfast options The elevator did stop working for a day, but luckily was fixed before check out since we were in the fifth floor Other than that, it was a great experience The kids loved the bunk beds!

Ashley Jax

Really lovely hotel! The staff was very kind and personable Only thing I didn’t necessarily like is the lighting I got up 3 times in the middle of the night to turn the lights off

They would come on every time I moved The bed was also fairly hard as well All in all it’s a really nice hotel and I love how close it is to the parks so I will be back for sure

Outdoors With Shawn

The only thing (and it’s trivial) is the room was a bit loud with no carpet in it But with that being said, the room was spotless and comfy Highly recommended

EDIT: After this stay, we stayed 3 nights at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Studios That room was nice, but for the money this hotel room was nicer The resort itself was stunning don’t get me wrong But for the price I paid there I was expecting moreThe staff here was very friendly and professional They treated me with respect, were very friendly and answered all my questions The bartender was nice as well The prices on the snacks and drinks in the lobby was reasonable and the free coffee wasn’t bad at all for “hotel coffee”

The staff is very friendly, everyone we met, from the front desk to the housekeeping to the security guards and store cashiers The room was clean and the beds were comfortable We were on the seventh floor and weren’t bothered at all by any noise

It has a great view The pool is nice and is good sized Very conveniently located, walking distance to lots of stuff Free parking and shuttles to universal The housekeepers did a great job every day and even when we didn’t ask for service that day they made sure we had everything we needed It was a good value and I’d definitely recommend this hotel

Great little spot for a quick getaway Modest rooms but have a microwave and fridge Cleaning services were performed daily

Great price and close to everythingExtra 1/2 star given because I left some shirts behind and noticed a week later I called security and they indeed were found and held secure until my local friends could pickup

This was by far the best stay that I’ve experienced I’ve stayed in multiple hotels and they have never been this accommodating Friendly front desk

The breakfast was my favorite part The buffet style had a little bit of everything It was all fresh Nothing cold or stale From now on I will be taking my business to you guys I wish there was a later check out option but overall this was an amazing experience!

Brien Fincham

Hotel looked brand new, Lobby was very nice and front desk was super friendly, check in was easy Great Price, room was great and very clean Bed was very comfortable

Only complaint would be the in room coffee machine didn’t work but the free continental breakfast made up for it Omelets, Fresh make yourself waffles, sausage, breakfast potatoes and all the regular continental Breakfast stuff Overall stay was amazing and would definitely stay again, great location

Let me start by saying I have always been a loyal Hilton property guest My family and I love the Hampton inns however after this experience, I will never stay at any Hilton property again My 3 kids and I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights

On the fourth day of our stay we were at Magic Kingdom We came back to take a break before heading back out to go to the fireworks and catch a couple more rides While we were out I had a large amount of cash stolen The cash was not out in the open It was in a box buried in my bag Someone had to have rummaged through my things to get to it and took it all except the change and gift and credit cards This was our food money, play money and souvenir money Not only did we not get to go back to the park because I had to file a police report and wait for her to get fingerprints off our items I’m out all of our food/fun money Kelly who works at the front desk I have to say was extremely nice and empathetic which I appreciated but the manager Issac didn’t want to accept any wrong doing in the Properties part He told me the only person in the room had been there two months and was fully cooperative and denied any wrong doing He also told me the cameras they have in the hallways do not work He insinuated that I was lying Then got angry when I started to cry and accused me of being hostile and attacking him Issac could definitely benefit on some costumer service skills and how to treat others when they are being victimized and are nervous and scared He was extremely unprofessional and very condescending He also said I should have had travelers insurance Also to add to this the rooms upon arrival were not up to Hampton standards for being clean Dissatisfied, disappointed and angered to say the least!

This place is truly amazing We have been staying here for quite some time and wanted to wait to review this place until after a few visits When we first arrive, we are always greeting by a friendly, courteous staff member

On this particular visit, Tonya took care of us at the front desk She was extremely polite and very professional and had us in our room within 5 minutes This place is always spotless and beautiful Their breakfast in my humble opinion is 5 star It’s not one of those cheap breakfast buffets It has everything on it and it’s FREE Yes FREE When we got to our room, it was ready for us and spotless each and every time we have stayed here The location is very convenient to everything around Also have to give a shout-out to Alyssa She always makes my reservations for me whenever I need anything at all Overall I would extremely highly recommend this property for your next visit to the Orlando area

Martha Solis-Enriquez

I highly recommend this hotel! Our three day stay at the Hampton Inn Orlando was very enjoyable! Very close to the parks! Great location! The staff was amazing! The hotel manager Zero and Anna at the front desk answered all of my questions and concerns I had during my stay The morning staff who attended during breakfast hours in the dinning area were very attentive making sure breakfast was ready and available during breakfast hours!!! I will plan on staying here again when visiting Orlando! See you soon!

Kathleen Cabral

We had an excellent stay! Alexandre checked us in and out, and was so friendly and accommodating We were there early hoping to get checked in so we could quickly head over to see my grandaughter compete in the college national dance championship at the convention center Our room wasn’t ready, but he quickly found us another one so we could get checked in quickly

Room was extremely clean and bed comfortable Breakfast was good with plenty of options Had a wonderful stay this weekend and would definitely stay here again if we are ever back in the Orlando area Alexander even sent my husband and I on our way home after checking out this morning with completely water bottles and a snack for our ride home 😊

Maya My

My overall stay was good The first day there, I experienced an issue at check-in which was quickly corrected by management I appreciate Management’s promptness to correct the issues

Breakfast is a free buffet with an array of good, hot, tasty options The room is small but the water is hot and the bed and pillows were very comfortable The AC is very loud and made the stay less desirable The refrigerator was also loud and the rooms heat would not exceed 78 on the thermostat I’m anemic and Orlando experienced some cold weather when I visited but I could only heat the room up to 78, which felt more like heat of 68 Some of the staff were pleasant but others seemed like they didn’t want to be there A lot of the staff did not speak English; especially housekeeping, which made it a bit more difficult to explain what was needed for the room All in all, we had a nice stay

James Long

The location is great and only a 30 minute walk to Universal Studios The staff is very friendly and they go out of their way to help you The rooms are perfect for 2 people and I noticed nothing in the room that was out of place

The AC is cold and I promise you in this heat it great! Huge breakfast in the morning and just great people I’m sure if you wanted to nip pick you could, but the price is spot on and worth it They treat you like family I can’t wait to go back!

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking your place They compare countless booking websites and typically will have rooms a lot cheaper compared to others! You’re welcome :)! This place is one of my favorites in the area

I have been coming here for years If you decide to stay here you won’t be let downThis was one of the best stays I’ve had at a hotel the front desk workers were very welcoming and helpful The room was comfortable and clean The breakfast was outstanding everything was great I will be returning if I need to stay in Orlando

I’m uncertain how this hotel has a four star review

I suppose my experience could be out of the ordinary, but it’s hard to believe we’re the only ones to have an unpleasant stay I booked this hotel because of its score, price and location The one and only thing it has going for it is it’s location It is very close to Universal Studios Unfortunately, for us, that is the only thing we liked about the hotel We found our room to be pretty run down The toilet ran and the shower leaked all day and night The sink was crack, as was the threshold passing into the bathroom The water temperature fluctuated pretty dramatically while showering The walls are paper thin and we could easily hear the neighbors next to us as well as the kids running around above us We heard doors slamming all day and night This made it difficult to get a decent nights rest, which is all we really wanted from the hotel Room service didn’t actually refresh the room each day They only grabbed the old towels and left a new stack on the counter

Mark Novatka

I have been staying at this Best Western for the last several years when I have the opportunity It may be an older property, but it is very well taken care of The rooms are very clean, and up to date

They even take the time to make characters out of your towels That shows that they care Disney properties used to do this but know they want to offer you a discount not to clean your room At this hotel from the time you check in until the time you leave they care about your stay Great job to the entire staff

Cara hollingsworth

I had reservations at a motel around the corner and the accommodations were terrible Decided not to stay there, drove around the corner to the Best Western and Emmanuel gave me the same price for a room that I found online He even upgraded us to a VIP room with an amazing view

The room was beautiful, clean, fully stocked with everything we needed The staff was amazing and helpful Will definitely be going back and staying here when we are in the are again!

We had a great experience as usual We stayed at a Universal – View room in a high floor and it’s a great view, specially at night You can even see the fireworks from your room! It’s so worth it to book a room like this

Their beds and pillow are super comfy The room was very clean, and the staff is super nice and attentive, they are on top of your needs and help you right away Housekeeping service is available but you have to reserve a day prior to get your room cleaned, so keep that in mind when you stay to plan accordinglyThe Lobby area is very nice and very convenient with all the stores they have where you can basically find anything you wantThe closeness to Universal is incredibly convenient and amazing! You should also be aware that parking for your car costs around 26$ per night and it’s a little more expensive if you use valet parkingI really really enjoyed my stay and I have nothing negative to say from my experience this opportunity I stayed there

I was impressed for it being only a 3 star, the service and my experience was definitely more than 3 stars The sunshine Cafe for breakfast has delicious food at the buffet No its not complimentary and that’s because the quality is much better and worth the cost, Vinh and Jim were very considerate and friendly waiters, they even let us take fruit and coffee to go

The check for the Cafe and American Grill & bar can be charged to your room which is super convenient The bar even let me take the wine glass upstairs to my room They have a shuttle to Universal parks, we also walked to the park too since it wasn’t too far (15min), walking avoided the large crowds with the round security section too The pool is open later than other hotels I’ve been too and really big along with their jacuzzi with a tiny water park for the kids We opted to have room service daily, it was nice to be given that option We also got a cookie from the front desk when checking in The food at the American Grill is great quality, I had the steak and veggies They have an ice cream shop inside as well Great experience, great service, I highly recommend and can’t wait til my next stay

Aqua Hold

Friendly staff Cool temp and clean room

Great amenities Beautiful, relaxing scenery and grounds For tasty dining I’d strongly suggest their on-site restaurant “American Grill”I did not partake in using the pool during the day Where as, from the view of the area from my roomthere was not much shaded area or umbrellas for my useHowever for the most part, my stay with Double Tree was very comfortable and pleasant

My husband and I stayed here for about a week on a business trip The stay was great Room was very clean & aroma was wonderful

The front desk people where friendlyI can say that breakfast was absolutely wonderful due to their server Debra! (Sorry if miss spelled)I’m not personally a morning person but she managed to make me smile every time I walked in the door Super sweet, hardworking, makes sure everyone that walks through her kitchen is satisfied & very well taken care of!

Kevin Thacker

One elevator not working, pool pump broke and unable to use pool which we were not informed of at booking or check-in Hallway smelled terrible like a skunk was living across the hallway Our card was charged twice for the stay amount and staff was NOT helpful about it at all

Only highlight and reason for one star instead of none (or negative) is the breakfast was good That’s only after one night🤦🏻‍♂️ DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE AT ALL!!!

Bear Osborn

As a family of 6 we really dislike having to stay in hotels so we usually VRBO or a resort, but the circumstances of our trip didn’t allow that so we stayed here After 3 days we couldn’t be happier! We have found this facility to be warm from staff to guests Not sure how they’ve created this environment, but we’ll seek this hotel for our next visit

Really impressed 👏

The key points are that the room was clean, service was great, hotel was quiet, and the bathroom has a fan We have been to so many hotels, and none of them had fans except for this one If you want more a more detailed review keep reading

There is complimentary breakfast that ends at 10 There was a waffle maker, pancake maker that was broken during our stay, bread with a toast maker thing, muffins, danishes, bagels, cereal, sausage and eggs They also had beverage machines that were open all day, including coffee, hot water, orange juice, and apple juice The room was clean There was a fridge and microwave in the room There is also a pond outside very close to the hotel, near the pool I think the locals feed the turtles or something because when we stepped onto the deck all the turtles swam toward us The service was great We needed to print out something, and a person at the front desk did it for us very quickly The breakfast ran out of napkins, and we asked an employee and they replaced them immediately

Stacey Wood

Clean hotel The breakfast was good but didn’t have enough coming out for the amount of people that were there I will say that the gal working was doing a great job attempting to keep up with the traffic! Lillie, the overnight front desk attendant, was fabulous

She was sweet, helpful, and attentive to us – and the other guests we witnessed her interacting with Will not hesitate to stay again!
