Hawthorn Suites Wyndham Universal
- What's Included
Great location,pleasant staff,breakfast included in stay ,not a great choice and can be a little crowded at times.Toilets,lobby area and pool were spotless.Cleaners came everyday with fresh towels etc..great choice of tv channels should you need a break from the hot sun,air conditioning very good and beds comfortable.Rooms could do with a lick of paint but they were clean.Overall it was a very pleasant stay and if i were to fault anything it would be to please dont give out the basketball to people at 7 in the morning particullarly when guests above the court are trying to sleep :-)
I was looking online for a suite close to Universal and I-drive and found StaySky Suites. It was moderately priced at roughly $100 per night. I checked Google Maps and it was close to everything so we decided to go for it and had a decent stay.Our pool facing suite was big enough for 4 people (website says 6). It has a separate bedroom and living room plus a small kitchen complete with stove, micro, toaster, coffee maker and full-size fridge. Bedroom has 2 comfortable queen beds, TV, chest of drawers and hanging closet. Living room has a pull out sofa and TV as well. There's also a small dining table with 4 chairs. The bathroom was clean but they were stingy with toiletries. 1 face soap, 1 bath soap, and 1 shampoo. No conditioner and no lotion. Weird :( We just asked for extras the next morning. Parking is free if you have a rental and there's also a free shuttle bus to the parks. Just make sure to request your spot the day before and get up early.The location was perfect. Downtown was $15 via Lyft and Universal was only $6 which is a cheaper option than paying $20 at the park. I-drive was only about a couple blocks away. There's Chili's, Friday's and Pizza Hut within walking distance as well as a mini grocery store. Pirates Dinner show is also around the corner. We are not really fans of chains so we searched for nearby burger / gastropubs using Yelp app and there's plenty within a 10-15 minute drive. I'll post one of the cool gastropubs we went to on my next review.Orlando definitely has no shortage of hotels. One can find a hotel for even less than $50 per night. It all depends on how many people you are with and how much time will be spent at the parks. While StaySky Suites is not modern nor has any luxury amenities, it's suitable for a family or group of friends who are just looking for a comfortable weekend stay in a convenient location. Bonus, free daily hot breakfast buffet and 2 complimentary beer or wine during happy hour.
Main issue: policy requires upfront payment of entire reservation, plus a security deposit in case I trash the room. This really worried me about what kind of clientele they cater to. Walked in at 2:30 p.m., but check in is at 3, and there is no accommodation for anything earlier. And in fact my room wasn't going to be ready until 3:15 at best so it was suggested I could sit in the lobby until the room was ready and I could check in. Went straight to the park instead and checked in later that night. Breakfast was all the cheapest generic foods. Generally did not bother with the elevator because I have NEVER seen such a slow elevator. Because of other reviews we left nothing valuable in the room. The bed and pillows have seen better days. On the plus side my room was quiet and nobody bothered me, the AC and tv and appliances worked, the towels seemed clean and they had complimentary newspapers in the breakfast room.
Extra bed covers or blankets for sofa bed would be nice. Other than that everything was excellent!Employs were super nice and when asked for extra bed covers they delivered within a few minutes. Breakfast was great and very clean around the area.
Visited here with husband,sister and niece,was unsure when we arrived as it looked a bit tired but the staff are excellent and go out of there way to look after you ,breakfast is fine and plenty of it .The pool area is nice and sun beds are comfy and complementary towels.Would stay here again as it's only a short walk to all the amenities international drive has to offer,there is also buses ever day to the parks which is great if you don't have a car.
