I sure wish I could trust tripadvisor a little better, as that website seems to be accurate about fifty percent of the time. I couldn't believe the rating that the Residence Inn Orlando got, as that place is terrific. You need to be skeptical about what people say in travel reviews. A lot of companies actually hire people to submit comments. Can you believe they hire people to submit bad comments about the competition and they submit good comments about their particular hotel property. Getting recommendations from the heart is the key, and a lot of ways the web does not provide that. Personal reference, from people you know and trust is the best way to go. Talking to a local property manager down here in Orlando is one possibility, especially if you're looking for a Condo Style rental. One thing about staying at the Contemporary Resort or the Polynesian Resort, you know what you're going to get and the car stays in the parking lot!
We will be able to bicycle ride all the way through the ucf college ucf.edu and discover a new place, in the progressive city. I will log on and book it. It is great that we go all over and see so much! If it is colder, then we will bundle up and deal with a Florida December day which is not that bad! I may have to change the hotel location and upgrade, but it will be in the area. Availability is the issue, so let me pick the best one for the 24th and 25th nights. Is it ok to do Melbourne first if the hotel picks are better, then the Orlando area second? I will try for three nights in Melbourne and Two Nights in Orlando, is that good? Is two and two better, or three nights in Melbourne? I am fine with two nights in Orlando and three nights on the oceanside of the state. Give me your opinion and I will do the best possible to put us in the best location.
