Good Place to Stay
We just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel. What a pleasure is all I can say! For the price we paid, I couldn't have expected more.
The kitchen was such a nice thing to have in the room and the staff was pleasant. The shuttle to Universal was convient, although we did have one problem with one of the drivers but that was immediately taken care of. All in all, a clean and safe place to stay.
And the dirt goes on . . . .
My mother and I checked into the Sierra Suites and immediately I knew there would be problems. There was mold growing out of the shower seams. It looked as though no one had washed under the rim of the sink since the hotel was built; the bed looked slept in; there was debris under the kitchen cabinets and under the bathroom vanity; there was debris on top of the heater (I never said anything about this to see if someone would clean it - they didn't) and they cleaned the shower once since we checked in (we were there 9 days). I even had to buy my own dishwashing detergent because half the time they forgot to leave some.
A truly horrible experience and when I complained to the central office, they sent me a three day gift certificate - as though I'd stay there again!
A Great place to stay!
We have recently returned from an 11 night stay at the Sierra Suites and loved it! It is situated just off i-drive which makes it much more peaceful. We were greeted by a real friendly lady on reception when we arrived and even when the staff changed from day to day each of them were just as friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms are fab-very spacious and clean with every amenity you could ask for(kitchen area with huge fridge/freezer, toaster, hob, dishwasher etc T.V/VCR, Huge beds, plenty of storage) Everywhere in the hotel was kept spotlessly clean. Breakfast was great,constantly topped up-all you need for grab and go. The pool was lovely and warm, which is great this time of year.
We also felt more secure here than at other properties we have stayed at because all corridors are internal, and to access any doors leading into the property you have to have a room key. We will definately be staying at the Sierra Suites in the future and recommend this hotel to anyone seeking a central Orlando base. (Oh, there is even a video vending machine so you can make use of your in room VCR!)
We enjoyed our stay!!!
We really enjoyed our stay last week at Sierra Suites. The staff were very nice. The rooms were very spacious, clean, and comfortable. The location was great. Just minutes from Universal Studios and many great restaurants. The children enjoyed the clean pool. We did not like the feather pillows but that is our own preference. Other than that, we would stay here again when we return to Orlando.
Great plus for the price
We wanted to stay someplace affordable and close to Universal Studios.
This place was great. It was clean, affordable and no smells!! The staff was very nice. I would definately come back!
I have recently returned from a 2 week stay in the Sierra Suites, Pointe Orlando, and would recommend it to anybody wishing to stay in the International Drive area. The Staff are effecient and friendly and will do all they can to help their guests. The rooms are spacious and clean and the pool area is immaculately maintained. The hotel itself is ideally situated in a quiet spot off I-Drive, within walking distance to the shops and cinemas of Pointe Orlando, even the rooms next to the pool area are quiet. Would recommend this hotel without hesitation.
It was a blast, five thumbs up!!!
Sierra Suites at Point Orlando was home away from home. I am the assistant chairperson for my choir and we just returned home from our visit to Orlando. I write on the behalf of the thirty-four persons who were in our group, and we found that hotel passed every one's expectations. Our choir travels every year on vacation and after our stay to Sierra Suites, it will be hard for me to arrange next year's trip to meet 50% of the Sierra Suites experience and standard. Thank you for a wonderful hotel which enhanced our vacation.
Made the trip to Orlando pleasurable!!!
We couldn't ask for more--we stayed for 5 nights here and everything was up to par--staff was accommodating, suites were exceptionally clean, even with a kitchenette..they even turn on the dishwasher for you!! for the price we paid, we were satisfied overall--hope to see more sierra suites in other cities as well!!!
GREAT RATE AND GREAT LOCATION
Great prices - Even over Easter. Great location. Close to parks and other fun things to do. We had 2 kids, age 4 and 6, and we found it easy to go back to our suite during the day and rest and then go back to the parks at night. We loved being able to make our own food to bring in to the parks also. Pool was kind of cool but when it is 80 degrees it felt good!!! Pleasant staff, very accommodating to our requests.
An absolut pleasure
We stayed in the Sierra Suites last July and are going again this year. It was a pleasure. The rooms were clean, bright and spacious. The staff were lovely and spoke; they were on hand to help. Breakfast was always ready for your self-service, being topped up all the time. The outdoor area was clean and spacious. We had a brilliant holiday there, wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to you.

... the first few hours before the heat and crowds become too much.
In terms of Universal parks, the VIP Express system is an extra chare on your entry ticket. I tend to not view this as good value. Instead, aim to be at the park for opening time and also consider using the Single Rider option. Universal maintain separate lines for single riders and then slots these individual's into the ride to fill in empty seats. ...
The original plan was to leave around 4 to head back for dinner at the camper and then come back to the park around 8 for the parade and fireworks. Everyone still seemed to be going strong by 4pm so we thought we'd stick it out. We found somewhere quick for dinner where the kids got exactly a 1/2 cup of mac n cheese and some yogurt for the low low price of $7 each. There is nothing cheap about Disney. But staying for dinner was totally worth it because of the ...

Rosie told her ticket seller she was very excited and got a first visit badge, I was a bit jealous so at the point completely stopped trying to contain my inner child and we ran towards Minnie Mouse for photos!! I met Minnie Mouse!! After that we of course needed Minnie ears for the whole day, but the ones in the first store were too tight for my liking. It was meant to be though because as soon as we entered Adventure Land they were ...

Now, we knew we were only staying for part of the day at the Animal Kingdom Park because we had bought special passes to attend the Disney not so scary halloween party back at the Magic Kingdom (which I continue to call Disneyland... and it really continues to prove it is not my Disneyland) so we ...
... it clears up but not today. There was thunder and lightning and then steady rain for several hours. Many people were walking around in white Disney ponchos much like the pink ones we'd had at Niagara. To keep out of the rain we retreated to the merchandise shops.
Our latest pickup by the shuttle would be 10.30 but the fireworks started at 10 so we would miss them and had decided to go for the 9.30 pick up. It was now about 7 so we started to try to ...
