We stayed from 7/28/04 through 8/3/04. I have to say this was one of the best hotels I've stayed at for the price. The hotel itself was nice and the room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff was great until you had a problem. We had issues with not getting a crib as requested. We got a pack-n-play, even though I verified when booking that it would be a crib, not a pack-n-play. The hotel provided a number for a rental service where we could rent a crib and offered us a reduction on our bill. However, what they offered was more than $20 less than what it would cost to rent a crib. I was also disappointed in the housekeeping. They provided bare minimum (rarely had extra toilet paper, no tissues and only 2 tiny trash cans for a 1 bedroom suite...we needed that much for the kitchen alone!). One day housekeeping didn't come and when we talked to staff in the early evening they didn't seem pleased with us for bringing it to their attention.
Overall though, the pool was great and very kid friendly. The common areas were clean and attractive. Parking was convenient. Elevators were busy, but it wasn't too bad. The complimentary hot breakfast buffet was extremely crowded, but we expected that from reading reviews here. I'd recommend this hotel to friends. I'd also stay here again, but I'd know what to expect the next time in terms of service.

Just recently stayed at the Residence Inn/Sea World. The stay was great. No problems checking in or with checking in a day early. Front Desk staff courteous and attentive.
Property was well maintained including the pool. Hotel has excellent work out room and laundry facilities (more than enough washers/dryers).
The breakfast buffet was not gourmet but had a large assortment of food to satisfy anyones taste and definately enough portions to satisfy anyones hunger plus when you are travelling with a large family, anywhere you can save money is greatly appreciated.
The rooms were excellent and included a small kitchenett.
The only complaint, my daughter stated the sofa bed mattress was too lumpy.
Otherwise, we greatly enjoyed our stay and plan on returning and staying here again.

We stayed for four nights in Aug 04 - nice sized room (2 beds, 2 baths), we didn't really hear much noise from other residents and none from the road. Pool nice, a little on the small side and much more for smaller kids than competent swimmers. Pizza hut very useful. Buffet breakfast was fine - do need to get there before the last 30 minutes to avoid long lines, but a great money saver if you have a large family as you can fill up with pancakes/waffles etc before hitting the parks. Good location too. Only suggestion I would have is for them to add some trees/planting on the one side of the outdoor area - it was cleared for obvious future construction, and was fenced off, but looked a little bleak. Would stay here again.

In a word - Excellent! The staff is great, the hotel rooms are spotless, and the food is very good.

The only knock I have on the hotel is that I wish that the pool had a bigger shallow end for the younger ones.

Otherwise, this was a great hotel! I would highly recommend it.

The Residence Inn at Sea World is one of the best hotels we've stayed at in Florida.

We stayed here on April vacation to visit Sea World. I didn't expect to love the hotel as much as I did.

The room was really nice and clean. You have your own living room and kitchen. You have 1 TV in the bedroom, and 1 TV in the living room. You have a spacious refridgerator to store all the goods for cooling. It is like a mimi apartment.

The free breakfast was delicious.
They have everything (bagels, pancakes, waffles, french toast, oatmeal, cereal, tea, coffee, etc.)

The pool was alot of fun for the kids. They could go to the Pizza Hut Express right at the pool for dinner and get a smoothie at the bar.

Overall, this hotel is a teriffic hotel for the price you are paying. The maid service and hotel people are really friendly. You get a free morning paper. It is definately worth it. I am definately going there again this summer!

Could not believe the standard of this hotel for the money. Booked with an agent prior to travel so paid £50 a night and for this got a two bedroom suite which was immaculate!Would suggest anyone going upgrades to at least a one bedroom suite as they are well worth it. Service was excellent - nothing too much trouble. Location is wonderful for seaworld and also right beside I4 to Disney.The pool whilst small was more than adequate and the pizza express did a roaring trade from our kids! Breakfast was basic but provided an adequate start to the day - would suggest bringing breakfast up to room as it is much more relaxing (hotel do not have a problem with you doing that) Breakfast can get very busy after 8.30! Will definitely stay here again.
