Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was a little worried after reading some recent negative reviews but our stay was great. Yes it’s a little dated (but not shabby) decor wise but it was clean and tidy. We were facing the pool and I was worried about noise but it shuts at 10pm and after that time the area was very quiet. We could hear the footsteps of people above us but it wasn’t bad. We had a 2 bed suite, both rooms had a small but functional bathroom. Beds were a little soft for our liking but it wouldn’t stop me staying again. The staff we spoke to were all friendly and it’s within walking distance of restaurants and Disney springs (or an Uber is about $10). For the price I’d definitely stay here again.

Any trip to Orlando is more likely than not going to involve the loudness and business of the theme parks. This Staybridge suites turned out to be a lovely respite. We spent 6 nights in a 2 bedroom, 2 bth, 3 bed suite, which allowed the various family members some space to relax. The full sized fridge was appreciated, and the kitchenette stocked with cutlery, plates, saucepans etc. There are no elevators, so we chose to only walk up the one flight (wouldnt want to be on the top floor if you have a lot of luggage!). The rooms overlooked a heated pool (the only properly heated pool we encountered in our 5 weeks in the USA), spa. There was also a games room, and outdoor grill that could be used. My only quibble, the charge to use the laundry. The Staybridge Suites were set in a quiet location but with easy access back into the traffic, and there were many dining options within walking distance, as well as a supermarket, which I only found on the second last day, wish I had discovered it much sooner! Well set up breakfast buffett and helpful on site ticketing. Would definitely stay again.

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment for a 5 night stay. The hotel apartment is conveniently located, and is generally about 10 to 15 minutes drive to the Disney theme parks. There is a supermarket (Winn Dixie) located nearby and a Walgreens and a petrol station located opposite the apartment. There are daily shuttles to the theme parks, but we did not use them as we had a rental car.

Staff were friendly, efficient and made us feel very welcomed. Pre-arrival communications with Valerie, Yesenia and Rafael were also promptly responded to. The apartment is also very clean, spacious and well maintained. We had a very comfortable stay with the king sized beds in each room and each bedroom had a bathroom as well. Daily touch up cleaning was provided each day with replacement of towels, beverages. Breakfast is provided each day and there are social evenings every Mon to Wed. The only comment would probably be breakfast items could be rotated so that longer staying guests can have more variety to choose from. The breakfast tables were also promptly cleaned it was not overly crowded as well.

Overall, it was a very good, value for money stay and it was one of the best accommodation that we had stayed in during our vacation. Highly recommended! Keep up the great work!

My family of 6 stayed here recently on our vacation. It was easy to find after a 20-25 minute drive from MCO. The outside appearance was very nice and inviting. Check in was a breeze. The room was set up nicely, one bedroom with 2 double beds and a bathroom, and another bedroom with a king bed and bathroom. There was a kitchen area with a table and a living room area. We made dinner in the kitchen one evening. The room was clean and decorated nicely. A good breakfast was served each morning, consisting of eggs, bacon or sausage, waffles, muffins, bagels etc. We stayed for 3 days. All of the staff was friendly. The pool and spa area was great! The pool was heated and was a decent size. There are several restaurants that are within walking distance, as well as convenience and grocery stores. This is a 3 story hotel. It has no elevators. This was not an issue, as we knew of this ahead of time. Parking is also $10 per night, so figure that into your budget. Disney was only 10 minutes away. Overall, for the price, we really enjoyed staying here. I would definitely stay here again!

The staff was extremely accommodating with a pre-arrival request. Our two bedroom/two bathroom with a fully equipped kitchen (oven, stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, etc.) was in excellent clean condition (room 433). There were lots of USB outlets and other travel conveniences. The only thing that could have made my stay easier was if I had noticed that the property DOES NOT have an elevator. If this is something you require, you should request a first floor room or ask for assistance.
NOTE: The property is located conveniently off of a very busy road. We did hear the traffic in our room (but we use a travel sound machine).
The property is across the street from a WAWA :-) this was a pleasant bonus. As well as many easily accessible restaurants.

If you are looking for luxury do not stay here. While it is one of only a handful of places in Orlando that have two bedroom suites with two bathrooms it is definitely in need of room renovations. Upon entering our room the first thing we noticed was the stains on the sofa cushions so bad my kid did not want to sleep on it, the stained carpets and the totally outdated curtains. We love our morning coffee and brought our own coffee but the coffee pot heating pad was totally rusted out and we did not feel comfortable using it. The front desk gives out a flyer that says only one person per room is allowed to go down and get breakfast so My 16 yo son went down and was only given enough food for three people even though we had 5 people in our room which he explained but it didn’t matter he was only allowed 3 muffins. The beds were awful..very loud and squeaky when we moved or rolled over, not pillow top but had a strapped on cushion to mattress, just very old and in need of replacement. NO ELEVATORS, you must carry all of your luggage up the stairs which is not mentioned on their website. The front desk and lobby area is not impressive at all it looks more like a nasty convenience store, with one person serving guests so the wait time at 10 pm was quite long. I do not think i would stay here again but on a positive note, the A/C worked perfectly it was nice and cold and the property was somewhat quite after 10 pm quite hours. It worked for us bc we weren’t in the room that much.

Thank you for being our guest and for your feedback. I'm sorry you had some issues with your room and breakfast while you were here. Your son should have been able to get breakfast for all the guests in the room; I'm sorry if the attendant misunderstood him and did not give him enough food. We are in the process of modifying our breakfast and changes are coming. We are also excited about an upcoming renovation of all of our guest rooms and our lobby later this year.

The cleanness of the room is not good. There is a strange smell inside the room and on the beds. The bathroom is not working properly. The oven and dishwasher are not working properly too. Please do not believe the photos, the room is not getting any sunshine and it is very dark. Security and privacy are not the priority for the hotel and its staff. They can access your room without any notification to you and check your private stuff when you go outside. When you tell the security and privacy issue to the respective people, they never care about it. When I stayed over there, one of the cleaning people had entered my room and check drawers and my personal items. I reported the issue to the front desk person and manager. They did not really help me to solve the problem. Although I requested a refund and changing my room, they did not do anything. The manager was not polite and too mean when I claimed my problem. She hanged up on me multiple times when I tried to get help from them via phone

Thank you for being our guest; I'm very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. I know you spoke with our front office manager after you checked out, but in the future please let us know immediately if you notice anything not working properly in your suite. We have maintenance staff 24 hours at the hotel who can fix most anything right away for you. We do take security very seriously. We have both an outside security company as well as our own patrolling the hotel. Our housekeeping staff does enter the rooms every week to do cleaning. Thank you again for your feedback.

I loved having a suite as opposed to a standard hotel. We called it our mini apartment during our stay. The bed was so comfortable. I didn’t even want to get out of bed. The A.C worked really well. I also appreciated the extended check-out that allowed us some additional rest since we came in late. Also, the dishwasher was full of clean dishes and utensils for us to use which was very convenient.

We have booked this hotel in the month of NOV 2021 for 5 days. This is an apartment style living hotel which we loved. Very close to Disney World. We always book our hotels near to the destination as we travel with kids who are very energetic and cannot wait to get to the destination. Coming to the hotel, it's home away from home. It's like a studio apartment. We never saw a hotel providing the kitchen utensils and cookware, but here I was surprised to see all the utensils.

They provided utensils for a 4 member family. Plates, Bowls,Spoons,Forks,Knives,Spatula and cookware.We also had a coffee maker and small coffee machine, instant coffee packets and sugar packets. They also gave dish liquid, kitchen towel rolls 2.
Complementary breakfast is available. Due to COVID-19 we are not allowed to sit in the breakfast area, one person can go pick all the food. I don't know about pre COVID-19, but during our stay we got a simple breakfast like Bananas, Orange Juice, Cupcakes and Oat Meal Bars...

Luckily we had one store nearby where we got Indian groceries. We bought rice,lentils,Ready to use curries and some Rotis.

WiFi is available in all areas and is free of charge. Dry cleaning with Additional charge, Common Laundry with Additional charge.Room were maintained very clean.Very friendly front office.They have shuttles to get to all parks of Disney and Universal Studios.

Very easy to check out. We just called the front office and told them we are leaving. No need to drop the key. We kept the keys as a souvenir :D .
We enjoyed our stay at Sonesta and would love to book our stay with them again!!
Would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone...

We originally had a reservation for a different hotel, but I read that it was closed the day before we were supposed to stay there. This hotel met all of our needs. The staff and management were patient and kind while helping us with our crazy situation. The rooms were clean and gave us plenty of space to spread out. My kids loved the pool, and we were almost the only ones in it every time. There was a breakfast snack you can pick up every morning in place of a continental breakfast. I am very appreciative of the staff and their friendliness. The location is also super close to places to get food such as Papa John's and Steak and Shake.
