... I can't take them to Nth. Carolina on the plane or I would have bought some for the 4th July.
We arrived in St. Augustine around 11:30 and had an extended lunch break here. Its a beautiful old town with lots and lots of history. We only had 2.5 hours to see it all which of course didn't happen as we also had to have lunch in that time.
The drawbridge is ...
... hilarious though. We were almost done for the day but on the way out the girls mentioned they never seen or tried a churro. So of cores we got one to share just so they could try it. Needless to say they loved it! I mean who doesn't. We headed back to the van and when we got back to the campsite my group quickly threw together a stir fry which was a hit full of veggies. Then we decided to jump in the pool for a bit and played some volleyball. Then it was time to call it a ...

... we had a huge thunder storm come through. Felt bad for our neighbors who are in a tent. During the middle of the storm the fireworks went off as scheduled. That's Disney for you. You can't beat Disney for a quality product.
... Orlando, conveniently located right across the street from Universal Studios.
Solid rooms, I say. Plenty of room and a sofa on which put my suitcase, which was filled with insets and cartridges. Insulin went in the empty minifridge, which didn't feel that cold-- but it seemed to work well enough. The insulin didn't go bad.
Mostly, I was excited to get the heck out of that hotel and to Universal Studios! (see more in Orlando entry two!)

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!
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 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.
