“Enjoyable”
Reviewed 11 February 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for 9 nights from 23 jan and had a really enjoyable stay. Checking in and out was fast and efficient and any requests we had were met such as pool view etc. There is a lovely coffee shop on site. Apartments are well equipped and they have a standard maid service make beds change towels daily. It's not on the middle of international drive so it's really quiet and the outlets on Vineland are a short walk away but I think you need a car staying here but other people were using the bus service. My only niggle was ask reception to call me a cab and I asked how much it would be to were u was going was told 18 dollars and when the cab came he said it would be 27 dollars so this needs to looked at.

We have just returned from a ten day family stay at this location and were very pleased! Beautifully kept property, clean and immaculate. Although they are working on the main pool at present, so there is some disturbance on the pool deck in some parts, however there is a second pool and hot tub located on the property. The cafe and bar located by the main pool is also convenient. This property is located right around the corner from a Walgreens, Publix, liquor store and the Orlando Premium Outlets - Vineland.
Being located at the southern base of International Drive, you are close to a variety of dining choices and could take the $2 iRide tram if you wish to such dining and attraction choices located along International Drive. The property shuttle also can transport you to Epcot where you could ultimately access all of the Disney parks and properties and another shuttle goes to Universal Studios. Therefore, I find that you could actually stay here without vehcile access if you wished.
The front counter staff were extremely courteous and professional and check on your satisfaction of your accommodations shortly after check in.
Rooms were very clean and kitchen was well stocked. Smaller items needed like dishscrubbers etc...could easily be bought at the nearby stores.
They provided some coffee Kcups, dish liquid, a cleaning sponge etc but we also bought many items for our use at the nearby Publix or Walgreens.
Locations to the Disney property was accessbile and nearby. Just a turn to the west from International Drive on to the 536 and you were directly heading into Disney territory!
Our only concerns were a dripping shower head and a leak at the kitchen sink which was no big problem for us at all but the front desk staff did note it for future repair.
We loved the automatic ice maker in the fridge freezer and all appliances were in great operational condition! Dishwasher detergent is also provided along with laundry detergent.
We will definitely revisit if in the Orlando area again!

Room Tip: We were in Building C - 4th floor overlooking lake area...very peaceful and between the two pool are...

We had a blast! This was our second stay at Floriday's. The staff is so kind and accommodating-even when we came in exhausted on Friday night. They go out of the way to make sure everything is perfect. Also, there were many kids there for a volleyball tournament, but once we were in our room with the door shut, we could hear nothing. We have a new home away from home! The grounds are outstanding-beautifully maintained. Perfect getaway for couples and families.

Room Tip: Building A or B are best as they are closest to the pool area.

This was our 20th trip to florida, and decided to stay in a resort with our baby for the first time. Floridays had the advantage of having a full kitchen in the room and the price was less than small rooms at larger hotel chains. We stayed here 6 days and loved the experience. Our itinerary had us go spend two days in the Tampa Bay area, but after one night, we decided to change our plans and head back to Floridays and got the same great experience as before. There is simply no better quality hotel for the price in the area. Period. We were treated with great care by the staff. The room was impeccable, and the daily housekeeping service was more than enough for us. We were also travelling with a family member who is a airline stewardess, and she was amazed by the hotel. Everyone in our party agreed that this is THE place to stay when visiting the Orlando Area. We were thrilled to stay at this hotel and will definitely do so again!

My family and I stayed in this condo late November and I have to say it is the best condo we have stayed at in Orlando. The facilities in the condo were perfect and the beds super comfy. The hot tub and pool literally a 2 minute walk and buses provided to take you to the parks. The information to detail and communication from the owners was top notch and staff on site were excellent, would not hesitate to recommend here to anyone vacationing in Orlando. It was that good we have already booked again for this year.

We stayed in a two bedroom suite and it was very comfortable. When we arrived on Day 1, our request for Bldg B pool or lake view was not honored. Ebony at the front desk was not very accommodating and told us there was nothing they could do about it. We were disappointed as we had read the reviews about the stellar service here. Instead we ended up in Bldg C farther away from the pool and with a view of the branches. We then decided to call the front desk to see if they were willing to move us when a room in Bldg B becomes available but my husband ended up talking to Ebony and again, she wouldn't have it. So we decided to wait until the next morning in hopes that we would get someone who actually cares. Luckily we did (unfortunately forgot her name) and she was able to move us to Bldg B with a lake view that afternoon and even got the change fee waived. Thanks to her and the nice manager, a frustrating start to our vacation subsided.

Aside from that initial incident, the rest of our stay at Floridays was very comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with everything imaginable. The beds were comfortable and the kids loved having their own private room and separate beds. Having separate bathrooms was a BIG plus as not many hotels in the area offer that for the price. I personally wish the decor was a little more up to date, but it wasn't a big deal as the room was very clean. Love the proximity to Publix and restaurants (we usually go to Thai Thani and the steakhouse next door when we are in the area and getting there was ultra convenient).

Sorry to say that the breakfast food was of poor quality so don't set high expectations if you're going have breakfast here. I don't believe they have any real restaurants on site. It's basically a little convenience shop/store that tried to serve breakfast but I couldn't finish my breakfast as it was awful. Appreciated the Starbucks though. And the poolside wings and pizzas were good.

We chose this place over a couple other contenders because we were searching for the following criteria: 1) value, 2) two bathrooms, 3) proximity to Disney, and 4) an attractive kid-friendly pool and game room to keep the kids occupied. Keep in mind that no matter which building you stay in, it's still a good walk to get to the pool. We were there in August and it was a very hot stroll. The other con is that afterwards we found out that the pool area is not non-smoking.. surprising and appalling that an area filled with kids would permit smoking. Due to this, a little apprehensive about staying here again. Supposedly, this is a non-smoking property.

Overall it is a great place to stay for the price. We've been to many upscale hotels in the Miami area so by comparison, the rooms here are not like oohs and aahs but we weren't expecting to be wowed as we just wanted clean and comfortable and this certainly accomplished that. Great vacation at the hotel and Disney parks.

Room Tip: Closing Bldg to pool is Bldg A or B. Lake view is nice because you can feed the ducks and turtles. P...

We went to Floridays for a family vacation. We had a three bedroom unit in the farthest section back.
The room was as I said, just ok. Tidy, but dated. Carpets were stained, furniture was worn and old looking. Our unit overlooked the maid/janitorial building. There was also construction going on directly behind our unit. They would begin very early!
We had to travel by car to the main pool which is understandable for a resort this size. Again, it was ok. Everything like tables, chairs etc. just look old and beat up.
As a frequent traveler to Orlando, my family and I have stayed on many different properties. There are several other resorts ranked lower than this one that I would rank much higher. I really have no explanation for why travelers have rated it so highly.
My advice is keep looking!

Stayed April 2013

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We appreciate all of your feedback. Please know that we work very hard to continually update our property. There was a renovation done in 2012 and one will be completed again in the near future. We also apologize for the construction noise disturbing you. This was likely the road construction being completed by the county. This is outside of our control but we do apologize for the disturbance. We take all of your comments very seriously and will be addressing them internally. Thank you for choosing Floridays.
