    Hey everyone! We are in need of a hotel recommendation for a 2 night stay in Orlando. We were supposed to be staying with family before going to our timeshare, but they have decided to move! Would love something clean. A suite would be great, but not a must. We have two little ones. Thanks so much!

    We stayed at these places:

    http://www.clarionlbv.com/
    Nice for the kids with the pool area and very close to downtown disney.

    http://www.qualityinn.com/hotel-orlando-florida-FLA10
    We've also stayed here nice but very basic and they did have the little suites but the pool was small and the rooms although clean were dated.

    Good luck!!:thumbsup2 Have a great VA-K

    You may want to look into the Hawthorn suites. We haven't stayed there yet but have booked after a high recommendation from our in laws who stay there most times when they do their annual Orlando trip. They say it's great, they have free continental breakfast, and they even have a happy hour thing around 7pm where you can stop in and have snacks and get up to 2 free drinks (adults can even choose beer as their 2 drinks). Plus their check in is 3pm and check out is like noon which is more convenient than most hotels. We chose a 1 bedroom king bed suite and are having our kids (who are 2 and 9) share the sofa bed. It won't let me post a link cuz I'm new to the boards but the site is Hawthorn suites universal .com with no spaces

    We love the Drury Inn at Sand Lake Road, they have a full breakfast, a "happy hour" from 5-7 or so with 3 free alcoholic drinks per adult, unlimited soda/juice, and food buffet with things like hot dogs, nachos & cheese, mac & cheese, fresh veggies, chips, etc. Also has free popcorn and soft drinks from 3-10pm every day. They have both regular rooms with 2 queens or 1 king (and room for a rollaway) or our preference, a 1 bedroom suite, we chose with 2 beds in the bedroom, plus pullout couch in the living room, as my 12 and 15 year olds refuse to sleep together anymore, and we do like the space of the suite. We also enjoy the Springhill Suites, these are like studio suites, 2 queens in the bedroom area, plus a sitting area with a pullout couch, seperated by a half wall/desk area. We have stayed at the one by Seaworld, but there is also one in Marriott Village, very close to DTD. They also include the breakfast, though not the dinner hour benefits. The Seaworld location does include quick que at Seaworld for free if you are going to the park. Closer to Disney, we have been impressed with the cleanliness/comfort at the Holiday Inn Maingate East, this is across 192 from Old Town Kissimee, and we have stayed in the family suites, one queen bed for the adults, a set of bunk beds for the kids. We also have stayed at Parc Royale, which is a Quality Hotel, also on 192. They have 2 bedroom suites for great price, and we felt were clean, but definitely dated. The plus there was 2 full bedrooms, one with king, one with 2 doubles, plus 2 full bathrooms. It does include a breakfast which was okay, not great. They have a nice pool though.

    I second this recommendation of Drury Inn :).

    Also, if this isn't to your liking Comfort Suites Maingate East in Kissimme is suite type accommodations and gets typically good reviews.

    Thank you so much everyone! I will be sure to check each hotel! I am excited to try a new place!

    We are a family of 4, two adults, two little ones.

    Does anyone know if there are any other nice Holiday Inns? Or something with a fun pool?

    Thanks again!!!

    What's the breakfast like at Springhill Suites at Sea World? Is it just continental or do they have some hot offerings as well? Are the beds comfy? Nice kid friendly pool? Planning to stay 2 nights at beginning of trip and go to Sea World before heading to Disney. 2 kids - 6 year old and 2 year old.

    Quality Suites Lake Buena Vista on Palm parkway. It has one bedroom suites with a living room and kitchen and comes with free hot breakfast. Our rate for 10 days from now is $71 a night.

    You can get a king bed in the bedroom and a pull out sofa or 2 queens in the bedroom and a pull out sofa.

    There are dishes and a dishwasher in the suite, a 2 burner stove, microwave and a full size fridge with ice maker.

    At breakfast they offer make your own waffles, eggs and sausage and some cereal and bagels.

    It is centrally located near a ton of restaurants and half way in between Universal and Disney.

    The pool is just a regular pool. Nothing fun or fancy about it and doesn't appear to have a kiddie pool.
