Floridays Resort
Ranked #16 of 341 Hotels in Orlando
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 July 2012

One of the closest hotels to DisneyWorld outside the resort. Visitors should note though that the Disney property is massive, and you will still spend (waste) a fair bit of time and money travelling to and from the restort if not staying in it.

This hotel was a great price, super suites with lots of space, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, lovely pool area - basically everything we needed. If self catering it is also 10 minutes walk (what's that?) to a large supermarket.

I booked this hotel only by looking at tripadvisor. It is actually one of the best hotels I have stayed in. Centrally located to Disney and all your shopping needs. Pool and hot tub very clean. We had a 3 bedroom suite loaded with every kitchen tool you would need on a vacation, also there is a washer/dryer. My husband had to print some documents while we were here and the reception staff took care of it for him within a few minutes at no extra charge. My family and I will definitely stay here again while traveling to Orlando.

Dear Candi V,

Thanks for the nice review. It was our extreme pleasure to have you stay with us while you enjoyed a "stay-cation" here in Orlando. And we appreciate you "definitely" staying with us again.

We stayed at this hotel in May for a week and it was excellent. The resort itself is great, it has 2 pools, a games room and even a cafe on site that serves Starbucks coffee. It was lovely to be able to come back to this resort after a day in the parks and let the kids swim in the pool while enjoying a coffee. The location was excellent with a publix supermarket within walking distance and some outlet shop just a little bit further down the road from the publix. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and it had a full kitchen and 2 bathrooms. We loved this hotel and would stay there again if we are ever back in Orlando!

Have just returned from a 2 week trip in Florida where we spent our first week at this Brilliant Floridays Resort.
The reception staff were very friendly and welcoming, And Wildo on the Concierge desk was really helpful and friendly.
The Hotel room was amazing, It was spotlessly clean and tidy, The space we had in our Room was excellent just like the pics, felt like a home from home with a lovely kitchen area fully equipped with a freezer which made its own ice, want one back in my home.
The Bedrooms were also very big with plenty of room for the kids to have their own space and their own bathroom, The Main Bedroom had a massive bed which was extremely comfortable and a great ensuite jacuzzi Bath and seperate Shower room.
The room overlooked the lake and small pool area and was very quiet ( this was Block D) so I would definately ask for that Block again. It was great to sit out on the Balcony at night watching the ducks, fish and turtles swimming in the lake which had a lovely water fountain lit at night time.
The main pool was busy during the day, which was normal, waiter service at the pool if required and the food which we ordered was really tasty and reasonable value for money . Bar Staff were really nice and friendly and made you feel very welcome, We didnt use the cafe for breakfast as we ate in our room but it looked really nice and other customers commented that the breakfast food was lovely.
The hotel is located at the very south end of International Drive so very much away from the hustle and bustle of the main IDRIVE area, but it was only a 5 min Trolly ride away, Bus Stop at the bottom of the hotel, 10 Mins to sea World and Aquatica and the Shuttle Bus took us to universal which took about 15-20 Mins Would recommend to book the day before as it is a busy time. There is a designer outlet a 10 min walk to the right of the Hotel which had the same shops as the one located at the north end of IDRIVE, I prefered the one close to the hotel as it was much quieter.
Overall felt really safe in this hotel, security is Paramount and was visible with security guards patrolling the hotel in their wee golf carts at night. and would definately chose this Resort again when I return in the future. ( Wish I could have taken the hotel room to St Petes Beach where we spent our second week of our holiday) especially for the space. Cant wait to go back.

Room Tip: Ask for Block D with a view of the lake

Dear lynne016,

What a nice compliment, that we out-did your St. Pete Beach hotel. Thanks for sharing with such good details. Others who haven't been here should find it very helpful. Please visit us again soon, and stay BOTH weeks with us next time. ; - )

Floriday's is a great place for a family to stay. If you want nice accommodations at a reasonable price then this is the place for you! The room was exactly as pictured on their website. It was very clean and well appointed.

This is a strong four star hotel...it is not a five star and I don't think they claim to be. There is no spa or full service restraurant. It does have a lovely pool area complete with spray toys for the little ones.

The front desk staff are awesome. They are friendly and very helpful. Period.

The room is spacious. We had a two bed/two bath with 1,100 sq ft. We had an issue with the stove and maintenance had it repaired before we returned from Disney that day.

Room service is only towels, trash, bed making and replenishing of toiletries. We stayed ten nights and upon the 7th they cleaned the room.

Floriday's is literally 8 miles from the magic Kingdom. That's according to our gps. Sea World is literally in the next block!

While we were there we only experienced rowdiness one night and that was just because I'm a light sleeper. The other nine nights were so quiet we never heard anyone and I believe it was completely booked. We never heard the occupants above, below or on either side of us.

The bed in the master was very good...the beds in the spare were not that great. The pillows were awesome in both bedrooms, however.

We loved our stay at Floriday's. We travel quite a bit and expect quite a lot. I am very OCD and had researched it extensively and didn't really believe all the rave reviews but it truly satisfied us!

Room Tip: We booked through the hotels in November for our July trip and got it for $130 per night plus taxes...

Dear disgusted41,

We couldn't be more pleased to SATISFY you, such an experienced traveler, with very perceptive observations about our resort. You're correct, no spa or full-service restaurant. But we're pleased to offer the full kitchens and Cafe/Marketplace for those who want to cook in their suites or are looking for a quick bite without leaving the property. Your description of the housekeeping service is right on. And glad you, mostly, enjoyed quiet sleeps. We'll look into the comfort level of the secondary bedroom beds. We're about to undergo replacement of many items in the rooms, and that just might be taken care of before you return again. And we DO hope you return again, very soon.

We got here yesterday and I was expecting something different due to all the reviews from tripadvisor, we check in was smooth the girl at front counter she was wonderful but when we got to the room the bathroom sink look old and broken not a good view both bathrooms the same, they did offer to fix it, but something like that should have been done before the guest arrives, and this morning we were woken up by some beautiful construction noise....let's see how the rest of vacation goes!!!!!

Dear Alexa201,

We're so glad you chose to stay with us. And we're sorry your stay started off with you being displeased with the sinks. While there IS road construction being done by the County next to us, they do their best not to start too early in the morning. We're sorry that disturbed you. Please don't hesitate to allow our Maintenance staff to correct your sinks. And don't hesitate to check with the Front Desk if there is anything we can do to make the rest of your stay outstanding. We're certain we can exceed your expectations.
