Breakfast was fine- staff was very nice but had difficulty fixing problems
Hotel needs updating A/C setup only one to a suite is not adaquete two rooms need two air conditioners
Loved the free breakfast
We stayed here for 2 weeks in 2002. The rooms were spacious and clean.
There was maid service daily they changed the beds and put clean towels out. The hot continental breakfast was great which we ate by the pool every morning. The I ride trolley was great as we did not have a car and there were free transport to the disney parks. The only draw back was that the hotel did not have a bar but we found one just around the corner and they served cheap food too. I would stay here again on my next trip to Orlando.
Very Nice Stay
Hotel appearance very nice. Free breakfast was great and filling - especially with 4 kids. Pool was nice but two warm considering it was already warm outside. The hotel could use some updating but am not complaining. Could never ask front desk any questions as they were always on the phone. I-Trolley was fun - and convenient. Sofa bed was fine but already broke when we got there. Only hotel I know where the windows actually open - which was great. Great view of the pool which was bad because the kids kept wanting to go to the pool. Room Service from area restaurants was fantastic! Highly recommend this hotel for convenience and rate. As long as you don't mind outdated appearance could be 5 star.
Check before you pay your money
well for starters we booked online they sent brochures and they looked great we were excited we were staying at the westgate lakes for a week then we were going to stay here for 3 more days .so on our back to westgate we said lets see what this place look like when we arrived there was only 1 person at the front desk so the guy gave us a key to a 2 bedroom it was terrible bathroom had olive green towels from the 70's how ugly thn the stove had rust on it fridge was small compact size tv small,overall terrible & small dusty looking pool was very small after looking at how these people don't clean i went back to the front desk told the guy to refund my money cause the room looked like you would catch something from this nasty room this was in august the hottest month in florida never again will i book a room online or trust a brochure if you have more bad reviews then good ones stay away from that place if i knew about tripadvisors before it wouldn't have happened
Always a good stay
My family of 5 has stayed at this hotel on 4 separate occations and in 4 different locations in the hotel. Everytime we have been there, the rooms have always been clean and tidy. The kids love the clean pool and playground. The breakfast in the morning was always a time of excitment for the kids (lots to choose from). The staff has always been helpful.
We love the i-trolley right outside the hotel. It was great to hop on, go to Sea World, come back for lunch, rest, hop back on and finish up our night at the park. Everything you needed was off the trolley route.
Do keep in mind it takes an hour to do the entire route, but only about 10 minutes to or from Sea World. The kids loved riding and it was CHEAP! The kitchenette is nice to fix a quick meal or have someplace for snacks. It has a small dishwasher, 2 burner stove top, sink, microwave and a dorm size refrig plus utensil, dishes and pans. They were more than willing to send up extra dishes to accomodate our family. Plenty of towels by the pool and in the rooms. My only complaint is that the dinning space only seats 3 in the room. Anytime we go to Sea World, this is the only place we stay. It is just minutes away from Downtown Disney. It perfectly meets our needs and I would recommend it to anyone. We have also stayed at the Hawthorn in LA (Disney) and San Diego. All with the same commitement to a good stay.
It is a chain that I have become to trust.
Free breakfast and lots of space
We loved staying here! The extra space was wonderful. We had a king suite with a separate bedroom. The area by the sink was spacious, and nice to get ready at in the morning. The kitchen had a very small refrigerator, but it was fine for soda and beer. The bedroom was nice sized, and the bed was comfortable. The living room was nice, the tv was kind of small, and the lights would have been better if they were brighter for reading. The free breakfast in the morning was good. There were scrambled eggs every day, and rotated sausage and ham, and pancakes and french toast. They also had fruit, cold cereal, instant oatmeal, toast, english muffins, juice and coffee/tea every day. We looked forward to breakfast every morning.The hotel wasn't luxury, but it was clean and nice. The pool area was pleasant, and the pool water was very warm (the weather was chilly when we were there). The jacuzzi was nice too. I would definately stay there again. I think that you need a car to get around, but the location is very good, right off International Drive. For a family with kids, it's especially good, free breakfast and a good amount of space in the rooms to spread out helps to make the vacation more relaxing.
Air conditioner made noises in the middle of the night. Hot and cold faucets reversed. Spray off side of shower nozzle sprays all over the floor. Rooms were clean - nice to see green towels instead of white.
Pool very nice. Small enclosed playgriound area off of pool area. Nice breakfast buffet
A Nightmare for the Road Weary Traveler
Whether you have just spent several hours on the road or have just arrived from down the street, this hotel would have been a nightmare. I saw this hotel's rooms on the website and still could not have imagined that the furniture would look as nasty, old, and uninviting as it did.
First of all the lobby is a facade compared to the rooms. Once you are past the lobby and you are headed to the hallway to find your room, you will find this awful green unkempt carpet that looks like it belongs in a 1860's theatre. Once you arrive in the room, you might notice that the room is musty and very dim. I was afraid to use the restroom. The bathroom floor was filthy and for that matter so was the toilet and the bathtub. I hope you bring your own pillows. Your head will fall straight through the pillow. I felt like I might suffocate if I fell asleep on one. I immediately started itching once in bed. It felt as if I was being bitten by fleas. The couch was rickety and was hard as a rock. The towels were old and had stains on them. The kitchenette was just an "ette". It was so old it probably had an original settler's fingerprints still on the cabinets. I would not recommend this hotel to a cat and dog. This establishment does not even come close to what they charge...the room rate was outrageous for what you get in return. I could not even sleep and I had just spent 22 hours getting there...driving! After being there for just 15 minutes, I immediately called another hotel to stay in. At the other hotel, it was like going from rags at this flea-bitten motel to riches at a world-class hotel.
this was a bad choice as the room was grubby.The sofa was so dirty to touch and awful to sleep on for my husband as none of the 3 kids would sleep on it.It made a noise all night as it was so old.3 kids and myself used the beds in the room and every morning the fitted sheets were off the bed as they didnt fit. We had to ask for extra towels every day as we were 5 and toilet roll. One of the cooker rings didnt work at all. The breakfast was good and the pool was good. Expedia.com advertise the hotel as having a daily newspaper and grocery list which we never saw once.They also say they have a free socialin the week with drinks and food but the hotel dont have that sevice.
We have stayed at the Hawthorn suites twice and are thinking of going again this year.We all loved it .It was just off international drive so was nice and peacefull after a long day at the parks. I recommended it to a friend in 2001. and they liked it too. It is spaciouse,clean and a lot of Americans stay there.The maid comes in daily and there is complimentary soap and shampoo. The complimentary shuttles to the park are great ,and the i-ride stop is also just outside the hotel.you will love it.

... t see out the window as usual on any train, the window was a screen that projected scenery of harry potter as if you were on the real train in the movie. One side had that screen, and the other side was the doors to the cabin which also had technology within it, to pretend that Harry and others were walking by on the train. It’s so difficult to explain but it was simply amazing technology.

... Orlando and it was all aboard the Disney Magical Express bus! As you can imagine I was just as excited as all of the children surrounding us and I didn't really know what to do. Wasn't a very long bus ride and we were there, ready to check in to our little mermaid room at The Art of Animation Reaort! We got cool wrist bands with our names on them - mine was even spelt right!, badges to wear on our trip to Disney World, even a special birthday one for Michelle and ...
Check in and security is a breeze, then I head straight for the make up girls in duty free. 'Make it happen for me' I say and they duly oblige. I have no idea what I'm buying, but it costs a small fortune.

No visit to Hyderabad should be undertaken without visiting the grand and majestic centerpiece of the city that is Charminar. Translated roughly as “Four Towers” or “Mosque of the Four Minarets”, the Charminar is also called by some as the Arc de Triomphe of the East and is one of the most important monuments of Hyderabad. And so, we will be there in time for a dusk visit as the lights will illuminate this wonderful ...
... top level right at the front of the boat so had an awesome uninterrupted view of both sides if the river and the amazing houses and boats we went past. The trip was commentated by captain Ozzie with a fair amount of predictable but humorous anecdotes and jokes. After an hour, we pulled up to what they referred to as an island but it wasn't. There we were led to an undercover area filled with tables and settings for dinner. Beans, bread rolls, wedges and coleslaw ...
