Orlando is brimming with accommodation options, from budget hotel chains to four-star properties in the best locations. If you’re looking for cheap Orlando hotels, check out chains like La Quinta Inn Orlando Universal, Travelodge Inn and Suites at Orlando Airport, Best Western, Motel 6 Orlando, Comfort Inn & Suites or Ramada Orlando Downtown.

These properties include Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel, Loews Royal Pacific Resort and Loews Sapphire Falls Resort. Depending on your budget and preference, there’s definitely a suitable option for everyone in Orlando.

Water park Orlando hotels
For a holiday within a holiday, choose from one of Orlando’s best water park hotels. That way, you don’t even need to leave the hotel to have a lot of fun with family and friends. Hilton Orlando has two pools, a waterslide, poolside cabanas and a lazy river. Nickelodeon Suites Resort is home to two water parks, the Lagoon Pool and the Oasis Pool. The Lagoon Pool is where over 1,500 litres of Nickelodeon’s green slime is dumped onto guests daily. There are also waterslides, a four-storey water tower, and interactive toys at this resort.
Nearby, Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort also has two pools and a lazy river. The best part about staying at a Universal hotel is the added extras, like early park admission, complimentary transportation, and random character appearances when you least expect them!
There’s without a doubt a hotel in Kissimmee or Orlando to suit every solo traveller, couple, or family. The hardest part is deciding whether you want a water park hotel, a themed Disney resort, or a budget chain. Let this post guide you to the right accommodation option.
