Reviewed 21 March 2014

We stayed here for one week, we found it a good location fairly central to everything we needed (Disney,sea world,aquatica,Amway centre) and also plenty to choose from when needing to eat! The staff were friendly, the room was clean, the pool was warm, our only complaint would be breakfast, we ended up eating breakfast at Denny's as the first morning there was eggs, more eggs, slop which we later realized was grits, toast and a few dry donuts, there was no bacon or sausage...we tried again the next day there was ham, egg & porridge, at this point we decided Denny's was the way forward. A good hotel though we would recommend it.

booked the place through hot wire was suppose to be 3 to 3.5 star hotel.We knew going in that we would not be there that much because we were spending the day at the parks.Was suppose to be a renovated hotel our room was not.It had old furniture,carpets and a dated small kitchen.I had read a review saying it had no hot water and thought the problem would have been fixed by the time i got there.guess what no hot water for my shower.On the plus side we had free breakfast,good location .Overall i would give the hotel a strong 2 star rating and would not stay again,i complained about the water issue but that did not help.

Room Tip: with so many other hotels to choose from i would stay elsewhere

We brought our family and my sister-in-law over New Years and had a great time. The hotel gave us rooms next to each other which worked out perfect. The location is great as many amenities are in walking distance. We drove to get groceries and that worked out great for meals. The pool was a fun distraction between going to the parks. The front desk, morning, and evening host personnel were very accomodating and personable.
I only have two improvements to note: the room furniture could use updating. It was functional and fine for the money, but could use updating. Also, we did not use the shuttle bus this trip (but have stayed here before and used it), but there are some limitations for the times they have available for trips.
Overall, an outstanding hotel for the price and I highly recommend it!

Stayed: January 2014

StaySky Suites is a excellent hotel. The check-in staff member is very helpful and friendly. The chef is also very helpful and friendly. I liked how the rooms had full kitchenettes with a stovetop. The pool and hot-tub is nice. I found the elevator soooo slow.

I stayed with Family in the First week of January, (It was Hawthorne suites then), Nice location and close proximity to the Universal studios. Disney is a bit far(20-30 mins drive) but the hotel has free shuttles at convenient timings. The room was nice,including the kitchen. Lift/elevator was extremely slow, so don't take up rooms that are on higher floors, ample parking, free wifi. The staff is helpful too. Only complaint is the breakfast menu is extremely limited, and if you get up late(10 am) chances are you wont be able to make it.

Great staff, very polite and will go above and beyond to make visit a good one. Cleaning crew fulfilled any requests on cleaning and left extra towels and even tucked my daughters stuffed animals in after making beds. Prime location near food, convenience stores and souvenir shops. Free shuttle service to parks a PLUS! Excellent breakfast!!!! Free wifi! A bit outdated but if you are not in the room much it doesn't matter. Would love to see a little makeover but will definitely stay again!

Room Tip: Call ahead for any special requests. My little girl has terrible allergies any they VIP cleaned our...

We stayed here one night. Clean room. Friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast buffet. Shuttle service was limited and rides were long to Disney (possibly shorter to Universal?).. but hey- it was free!
