Staybridge Suites (Now Called Sonesta ES Suites)
We stayed here in 2001 and loved the place. It had large suites with a complete kitchen, living room/dining room with comfy sofas and large TV with DVD/Video player, 2 large bedrooms each with their own bathroom. There is a bar and a reasonable sized breakfast room with breakfast included in the room rate. There is an on site swimming pool as well as a games room, a fitness room and a laundry. Not much has changed in the 11 years since we last stayed though it had just been taken over to become Sonesta ES Suites a matter of weeks before we arrived.We were in a smaller room this time as there were just 2 of us but it was still a good size (though the bathroom was compact). The suites could do with a bit of a makeover as they are a little tired now, but the room we had was still perfectly functional & very clean, the parking is free, the staff were helpful and friendly and we enjoyed our stay.
The best thing about my stay was...Perfect location on that part of I drive, within walking distance of restaurants, shops,and places to go for a drink.

Fantastic!!! The Hotel could not be any more helpful.
Donna Slevin Les Peters, Glasgow Scotland
We stayed here for 3 weeks in October. Its was fabulous. Free breakfast was great saved you lots dollars. Free transport buses to Disney, Universal and Seaworld. We did not hire a car but utilised the free transport from hotel to themeparks. We also used iRide bus $17 for 14 day unlimited pass, kids go free, which went up and down Int Drive all day. Also used the Lynx bus $2 a ride with free transfers. I could not rate this hotel any higher only wish I was still there. Rooms are fab and spacious with 3 tvs so no fighting over viewing. 10/10 Will definitely go back.
The best thing about my stay was...Friendliness and cleanliness of staff and hotel. Home from Home brilliant.

A NICE HOTEL WITH ONE/TWO BEDROOM SUITES WITH LIVING AREA/KITCHEN. BREAKFAST WAS GOOD WITH SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. TUES, WED, THURS OFFERS FREE DRINKS (ALCOHOLIC/SOFT DRINKS) & SNACKS (BURGERS, CHEESE & CRACKERS) FOR 2HRS WHICH IS A NICE GESTURE. LAID BACK HOTEL WITH GUESTS OF ALL AGES. HOTEL IN WALKING DISTANCE TO SHOPS/RESTAURANTS (BRICK HOUSE NICE FOR FOOD OR DRINKS & IT ALSO SHOWS BRITISH SPORT. BAHAMA BREEZE ALSO NICE & HAS A CARIBBEAN INFLUENCE). HOTEL COULD DO WITH A SLIGHT REFURB BUT WOULD STILL GO BACK.
The best thing about my stay was...TUES, WED, THURS FREE DRINKS & SNACKS FOR 2HRS

Recently returned from 10 day holiday with our three young boys. What we enjoyed most was the ideal location with I Ride Stop right outside the door. Staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful, nothing was a problem. Breakfast was very good,plenty of variety . Pool was very safe for young children which meant we relax a little more. Apartment was clean ,beds very comfortable and had all we needed. Would definitely return.
