“A good place to stay while taking a break from the main theme parks”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

This is a good hotel to stay at to let the kids play at the onsite water resort. It is reasonably priced, especially when considering you receive 4 onsite water park passes when you rent a room at the hotel. The location is also very good.

The rooms are bigger than many hotel rooms, and look nicer on the interior than you would expect from the look of the exterior of the hotel.

The only minor complaints that I have about my room at this hotel is the air conditioner was a little loud and it would not cool the room below 73-75 degrees. Also the bathroom fan did not work very well, and the water pressure was not very good.

But, again the hotel is reasonably priced, is at a great location, and the kids will have a great time with the onsite water park.

Three generations (grandparents, parent and eight-year-old) just returned from our second visit to this super-fun resort and we all agreed it's a great value and a guaranteed good time.The mark of a well-run hotel is how they handle adversity and CoCo Key gets an "A" from us. The night before our arrival, there was a power outage in the area, so when we arrived the lobby was crowded with unahppy travelers from the night before. The staff was making every effort to accommodate disappointed families and get them into the waterpark to enjoy the facilities. We were not affected, but recognized how patient and concerned the employees were, even though many guests were less than pleasant. Once again we found our room to be nicely appointed, clean and convenient to all the fun. Even though the hotel was full, we never found the lines for the water slides to be too long and were able to snag tables and chairs at all hours. Maybe we were lucky, or perhaps we don't expect five-star amenities at this reasonable price. We made friends while there who thoughtfully let us know how impressed they were with the CoCo Key staff, since they left behind an iPad in their room and received a phone call telling them it was found. Great customer service. We've since recommended CoCo Key to other friends with children and haven't heard any complaints. As a suggestion, spend the money for the late checkout. It let us turn an overnight into almost two full days of fun. We'll be back.

We stayed there for two nights. The outside may be a little dated, but the room was clean, well maintained with attention to detail. The staff was great - friendly, helpful, accomodating. The water park was fun - crowded but it's summer and Orlando. Lots of lifeguards and good service everywhere. My grandson loved it! Location was perfect, easy to get places and places to eat without driving - the greek place next door fantastic! It was a perfect weekend place!

Room Tip: Try to get an upper floor in the middle - less traffic. There are kids running the halls but that...

The hotel was clean and did let is check in early. We got a package deal with Universal Studios. The front desk miss informed us with what to so about our shuttle schedule and missed our early admission into Universal. Then the Universal attendant at the hotel lied and did not set up our shuttle for next two days like promised so we had to pay for taxi to enjoy our early admission. If your hotel is going to be partnered with someone, they need to be at least knowledgable about what is going on. We also had guest in front of us go off and leave because their reservation number did not work and they would not let them check in even though the customers had proof and emails. Beware of shady buisness. Keep up with all documentation. I give them a three star for cleanliness and the waterpark.

Thank you for providing us with feedback regarding your stay with us. We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced while staying at our property. Regarding the Universal Shuttle transportation, a schedule of the shuttle times is provided to each guest at check-in. The shuttle does not have to be scheduled you just must be in the pick up location during the select times it stops by the property. The ticket desk in the hotel lobby is employed by Universal Orlando Resort and all attendants are very knowledgeable on all attractions and are available until noon daily for guest questions and concerns. Again we apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced while staying with us, and we have provided your comments to both our staff and Universal Orlando Resort's. Please email us at comments@cocokeyorlando.com so we may try and provide you with a solution. We hope you reconsider and visit with us again soon.

didn't sleep all night, my friend and I stayed at this place a few weeks ago and while our room was nice and clean it was also next to the elevators, a recipe for a poor night sleep... The lobby is confusing and the water park option interesting but not adequate to just hangout . . .

Room Tip: aks the front desk for public transportation option

While it is far from upscale, the rooms are nicely remodeled from the normal "motel" look it has outside.
The water park is not huge but it's got enough stuff to keep the kids entertained for hours. If you want a table or even a chair to put your stuff on...Get there EARLY (as they open) or late (after 4pm.) Seats are extremely limited and the park gets packed early! People can buy day passes to the park even if they are not staying at the hotel.(There's lockers you can pay but they are just outside the water's perimeter.) It has a great covered area for small kids w/heated water that extends to an addt'l pool with 2 twist slides for teens/adults.
The room prices per night are reasonable (especially if you catch a sale) but no matter what you pay, there's a fee per person ($20) for the water park's unlimited access(1x fee not per day.)
If the Waterpark is not your "thing" they have a nice pool that is only for hotel guests with a waterfall, shaded loungers and bar. They also has a great/ big arcade room (Much bigger than the avg hotel) that is open late. There are games and activities through the day and a few choices of places to get something to eat or drink.
If all else fails, this hotel is in the heart of International Dr...you can walk, drive or ride the bus to any other attraction. (Dunkin Donuts is next door, 24 hr Mcdonald's & Go Carting place is in walking distance.)
If you are going to Orlando w/kids for a few days or not the type of family that has to be at the park all day or first thing in the morning, this may be a good option for you. The water park opens approx 10 am & closes around 5-7 (depending on the day of the week & season.)
It's not perfect either... We stayed 2x's & the first time (about a yr ago) our room was impecable & smelled great. The 2nd, not so much. It was clean, but had a particular smell & you could see the wear/tear on the bathroom tub, toilet & door.
- We kept in mind that any room is going to go thru wear/tear and (even at an expensive 4☆ hotel) things are inevitable such as the smell left by previous people, especially if these rooms are being booked 24/7.
Come with moderated expectations and you will see that for the value price, location, & kid amenities..it's a deal.

We were so excited to stay at Coco Key....until we arrived. The exterior looks like a motel and is in bad shape. We almost didn't stay! The check in process took quite a while as there were only two people helping. A gentleman dropped some money and another guest saw it and let him know. The lady sweeping the lobby said "that was about to be my tip". We should have left then. The rooms looked decent until further inspection revealed previous guests food still in the fridge and a wod of gum in the bathroom. The waterpark was a nightmare when we arrived. Full of various camps etc. there were way too many people inside the park and I realized that this place was open to the public. We didn't spend much time at the park because it just seemed really dirty. Upon going to bed there were bugs crawling on my pillow, yuck. Needless to say we cut our stay short and went home. If you are used to clean hotel rooms and a professional staff you will be disappointed.
