Just got back from a short trip up to Orlando to go to Universal's Halloween Horror Nights and decided to choose this Homewood Suites as we had been here previously in the Spring and had a great experience! This hotel once again proved itself with great, friendly employees...from front desk workers to breakfast staff to housekeeping staff. Starting with a warm welcome back from the front desk, it's nice to see people who really seem to like their jobs and care about their guests. I wouldn't want to walk back from Universal after walking around the park for 7 hours but luckily we had our car and it was a really short ride back to the hotel! The breakfast was again, plentiful and the suites are spacious. Will definitely be coming back when we plan our next trip to Universal!

We stayed at the Homewood suites near Universal Studios for 4 nights the first of October 2013. We had five disabled young adults with us so we reserved three rooms. The staff could not have been more accommodating to us in regards to placement of our rooms and our needs. They were just wonderful. The breakfast was plentiful and made it so easy for us to start our day. I had read some reviews about the difficulty with transportation to Universal. We took the hotel transportation each day and did not have any difficulty at all getting the van or bus when we wanted to leave and we had a party of 7! I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone.

My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 nights at the Homewood Suites in September (Tuesday - Friday). We were very happy with this property. The room was updated and very clean. We didn't hear any noise any of the nights of our stay. The breakfast was great with a variety of fruit, yogurt, eggs, bacon or sausage, pastries, toast, juice and coffee. There is also a complimentary dinner M-Th from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. We were able to take advantage of the dinner the first night and found it to be very acceptable. We were at Universal on the other nights and did not choose to return to the hotel. Universal Studios is about 1 mile. It consists of 3 right turns, very easy to find. We didn't actually cook anything during our stay. There is a full size refrigerator/freezer which was great for drinks. I always check every hotel for bed bugs and found absolutely no signs. The beds were very comfortable with soft sheets. This property is certainly a step above the budget hotels and feels very classy. Our room was cleaned every day with no complaints. In addition, my boyfriend and I prefer to sleep with a fan for white noise. The hotel clerk was very accommodating and had maintenance bring us a fan to use during our stay. I would highly recommend this property.

I wish I could have given this hotel 5 stars but couldn't. The way the ad reads is that it is just a short walk to Universal and even when I spoke to the hotel they told me the same.They told me that it was only a 10-15 min walk. It was at least 30 min in the blistering 95 degree heat on a main highway sidewalk. We are in our early 70's and walked there with our 4 teenage grandchildren. We thought we would never get there! There is a huge problem because the hotel only has a couple of shuttles in the morning and then no shuttle back until 7 and 8:30 pm. If I want to go back to the hotel in the afternoon, I have to call a taxi for $12 one way. Universal should correct this problem of so few shuttles because this hotel itself is one of the best hotels that we have stayed at. They have excellent customer service-very friendly. The rooms are large and very clean. We all enjoyed their outside pool. Their breakfasts were one of the best ever offered at any Homewood Suites we have ever been to. The grapefruit was unbelievable. I would certainly stay here again and maybe by then they will have worked something better out with Universal!

This hotel was perfect. We stayed for our Universal/Disney vacation and couldn't have asked for anything more! The rooms were great, with a full bedroom, living room, kitchen & bathroom. The pool was very nice, and we especially liked the large breakfasts each morning and the free dinner/drinks each evening (Mon-Thurs). We has Chicken Parm, Stadium Hot Dogs, Baked Potato bar, etc to name a few. The shuttle to and from Universal was great and timely, and best of all, free! We will try to stay at Homewood Suites anytime we travel after this great stay!

We were totally pleased with out 3 night stay. Check in was friendly and efficient; room was clean, well appointed and quiet; breakfast had a very good variety and the staff was right on top of everything. And you can't beat the location! Just off the upper end of the International Drive strip, you can walk across the street to Wet 'n Wild. International Drive is a direct route to countless restaurant, shopping and entertainment venues including Sea World, and you are only 5 minutes to Universal Studios! 10 minutes to the Mall at Millenia! We highly recommend this Homewood Suites!

Great place to stay and close to universal studios in Orlando. Room was clean and everything worked great. Loved the office area for internet and free Wi-fi worked great. Kitchen was great with big fridge and sink. Would stay there again when back in Orlando. In good distance to other areas for Disney and Orlando airport. Just right off the express way. Good resturants close by as well.
