Because, much as I’d like to, I couldn’t justify my Tuesday night being worth $200+ dollars, I wound up flying a late night flight into Orlando rather than Jacksonville which is much closer, grabbing a hotel room and a rental car to drive several hours to my parents early the next morning.

My flight arrived at midnight, so I just wanted a quiet, cheap hotel to crash at for a few hours. The Sheraton Suites Orlando Airport Hotel was coming up for only 4,000 points that night and was a scant mile and a half from the airport. Done!

It was easy to find the hotel, which is situated in a hotel community of 8+ properties, it was less easy to figure out parking lot traffic flow. Not realizing it was one way, I wound up exiting the hotel parking lot and having to drive around the little lake to get back.

Check in was quick and since it was so late, I opted for points rather than free internet or a drink. They’d assigned me a preferred guest ground floor room facing inwards to the pool courtyard, which was conveniently located to one of the parking lot entrances.

Upon opening the door, my first thought was that I’d wandered into the guest room of a private house furnished in the late ’80s or early ’90s. Everything was clean, and the wet bar and bathroom vanity had been updated, there was just an over abundance of wallpaper and other patterns.

There was a nice size TV in the living room and a small one tucked into the wall of the master bedroom. They’re so close together that using the remote to turn the bedroom TV with the door open, hilariously turned the living room TV on too. The bedroom closet offered a robe and the tiny nook with the shower and toilet was clean and free from mold.

If looking for an inexpensive place to stay while visiting the theme parks for a couple of days, this seemed like a good option. It offered a mini-fridge and room to spread out in so you’re not just sitting on the bed whenever you’re in the room. The pool appears to be indoor/outdoor next to the restaurant (never a fan of being seen or seeing others in bathing suits while eating).

Check out was quick, and with more sleep, I noticed that the lobby is deceptively modern compared to the rooms.
