... connection. The charges are 75c (that's 50p) per minute."
Internet Packages could be purchased which would reduce this cost marginally, but that is outrageous. Don't tell me it costs anything like that to provide Internet access on board ship. That's just a profiteering scam and Disney should be ashamed of themselves.
And then there's the phones. Don't even turn on your mobile phone. Disney charge $8 per minute, that includes dialling time, receiving ...
... eagle eyes for that sort of stuff you know!
Before we got to the pub we had walked around the lovely little lake, maybe 2 kilometre around, lots of birdlife and turtles etc. It was a nice park, and obviously well patronised on a Sunday afternoon by locals, many with their dogs. Erin got to talk to the black man running, he was trying to beat his record of 7 laps, we got the photo on lap 8!

But we had lunch up on Main Street plaza first. Great sandwich and homemade chips. This evening we went back to Epcot to dinner reservations at around the world in Germany at Biergarten. Which was Germany Buffett and tasty. Before dinner the boys were very antsy to ride a ride so we went on Mission Space ...

We got Duncan off in one piece but knw we stood no chance now of getting him on Splash mountain so we divided up again and he brave crew went on Splash Mountain while the lazy three went on Libery Belle Steamship ...

He acted so well as it wasn't until the last scene where he joined in on the action and surprised the audience. We had a look around Hollywood studios taking several photos of different things around us and then it was time to move on to you third and final world- Fantasy Land. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sonesta ES Suites Orlando
Upon our arrival to the StayBridge Hotel on International Drive, we entered the beautiful foyer and we were assisted by very friendly hotel employees. We were assigned the room and started to make our way up to our floor when the atmosphere started to become very dingy, dirty and unkept. We entered the room and the first thing that I noticed was the torn carpet at the entrance way. The sitting room was very small as was the kitchenette area. There was mold and mildew down the side of the fridge, cupboards and desk, and the counter top and cupboards were yellow with age. The couch was covered with stains. I then continued to inspect the bedrooms and bathrooms. After looking at the poor condition of the bathrooms, this just added to the list of our disappointments with this hotel suite. Our decision was made that we needed to cancel our reservation and look for a more suitable hotel for our family. The hotel employee was very understanding and responded to our disappointments by explaining to us that these suites need to be renovated.
When my family stayed here in August of 2003, it was called Summerfield Suites. After doing exhaustive internet searches for a hotel that would make my whole family and a teenage friend happy, I picked this hotel.
Of the low cost, suite hotels this is the best I've stayed in. Rooms are comfortable, spacious, and well equipped with VCR, CD, full kitchen incl. dishwaher. The place is clean. Maids did an excellent job, the rest of the staff was pleasant and helpful. I was in Orlando for a convention and the hotel is close to the convention center. Otherwise, the I-drive location is dull dull dull.
Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful
We have just returned after 12 nights staying in the Staybridge Suites.Upon our arrival we were made most welcome The two bedroom Suites are excellent all clean and with fantastic facilities The staff are superb and remember you get free breakfast and three nights a week what they call Sundowners which is a small buffet I cannot recommend location more it is fantastic.The only problem is that the swimming pool is small and inthe shade alot of the day but it is heated Go to 'Wet and Wild' up the road but please stay here it is brilliant
I just came back from my trip from Orlando and stayed here after viewing the comments on this page,I had high expecations but they turned out to be not what i expected. The beds where to small for 2 people(you could hardle move without waking up eachother)The rooms where very porely decorated(looked more like a bunker with all the white walls and a view paintings)The carpet was very dirty(always black socks or feet)The hallways where very dark(hardly any lights)The standard breakfast was also very poor(some bread and dry bagels and some fruit)The coffee tasted like dishwater to me.The rooms however had all the things you need to survive Orlando.The staff was indeed very friendly our cleaning lady was an angel we loved her.As a wyndham by request member i did,nt get al things you get as a member,but as with all those hotelprograms you don,t have to expect to much off it,mostly its fried air..hahaha well thats it you won,t see mee hear again,I,m going to homewood suites agian next time.
Sommerville Suites great family place to stay!
My family stayed at the Sommerfield Suites on International Drive, Orlando for several days. The staff was very helpful; the continental breakfast was great, the rooms are clean and bright, and the amenities are perfect for a family vacation! We were able to get a great internet deal and even were given a poolside room! We noticed that the staff is geared to making sure that alot of attention is given to the upkeep of the property. We were very pleased and would definitely stay here again. Only minutes to the Magic kingdom. Lots of family restaurants within a mile of the hotel. :)
I stayed at Summerfield suites in July 1996. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and I am hoping to return soon. The prices were competitive and the rooms were immaculate. It was idealy situated on International Drive, within suitable driving distance of the all the major attractions i.e. Walt Disney.Although this was some time ago I can only presume that the Summerfield Suites has improved even more which makes me want to return even more. I want to say thankyou for the hospitality and the welcoming response I got from all members of staff.It was a truly memorable holiday.
When i stayed here it was the best even the staff was fantastic. I would aalso recomend this hotle to everybody. its a great place to stay theres a restaurant over the road which you can eat as much as you like for a certain price.
Perfect for families
My family and i have stayed at this hotel and the Summerfield suites at LBV several times. You get a great deal for the money-a full kitchen(including a stove with an oven which is unusual in suite hotels),lots of space,lovely pools and the nicest, most customer service oriented staffs you will ever meet. These hotels are not fancy, but they are clean, convenient and will meet your needs economically and totally.
Stayed at S.Suites on 1/19/2002 and had a terrific experience. Suite was well decorated, well organized,
bed was firm, sheets and cover seemed to be fairly new. Desk workers were very cordial and helpful with all requests.
