Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Great location on International Drive near Orlando theme parks
  • Budget-friendly
  • Free Grab 'n Go breakfast
  • Room service plus an on-site food court
  • Free shuttle to Universal, Sea World, Wet 'n Wild and Aquatica
  • Two outdoor pools, two kiddie pools, two whirlpools, one indoor pool
  • Friday night is kids night with movie and pizza by the pool.
  • Free parking
  • Quiet

Cons

  • Decor is dated
  • Not all rooms have been refurbished
  • Noisy air conditioning units
  • No overhead lights in rooms
  • Some guests report issues with cleanliness
  • Hallways smell musty

Bottom Line

The Enclave Hotel & Suites offers much of what other all-suite Orlando hotels offer: great location, full kitchens, and numerous swimming pools. But this is an older hotel, and the rooms do show wear and a lack of attention to detail, in terms of decor and atmosphere. For families who don't intend to spend a lot of time in the room, however, the Enclave is a serviceable budget-friendly option, with nice lake views and easy access to all the theme parks.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Casual surroundings with lake views

The view of the lake from the gazebo at the Enclave Hotel and Suites offers a peaceful respite from the noise, crowds and excitement of Orlando's theme parks. Indoor and outdoor pools give parents a spot to lounge while kids burn off excess energy. There is nothing fancy about the Enclave, but everything is adequate, and the convenient food court is an inexpensive dining option. The grounds, signage and general atmosphere are dated looking, and furniture and carpeting could use a refresher.

 Location

In the middle of everything, with a peaceful lake view

The best feature of the Enclave Hotel and Suites is its location, just across a lovely lake from Wet 'n Wild theme park, with a gazebo on the lake shore for those who need a meditative moment in the middle of theme park madness. Disney is fifteen minutes away by car, and there are numerous shops and chain restaurants within a short walk of the hotel.

 Rooms

Adequate but shabby furnishings and full kitchens

Not all rooms at the Enclave Hotel and Suites are refurbished. Ask for a renovated room with laminated floors, as guests have reported stained, smelly carpets in older rooms. Bedrooms are not big, and nondescript furniture is oddly arranged. For example, a tube TV takes up the entire surface of a dresser, blocking the bedroom mirror. Decor looks thrown together, with jarring color choices such as green counters in a beige marble bathroom. Kitchens come with cooktop, coffeemaker, toaster oven, microwave, dishwasher and dinnerware. The hotel shows its age, and issues with cleanliness have been reported by some guests.

 Features

Indoor pool, food court, dive-in movies

The Enclave Hotel and Suites has two outdoor pools, but there aren't a great number of lounge chairs. Unlike other area hotels, though, the Enclave also has a 24-hour indoor pool. The food court includes a Pizza Hut and other fast food outlets, as well as beer and wine, and there is a hot breakfast buffet, for extra charge. Pre-arrival grocery delivery is available, and activities include evening "dive-in movies", scuba lessons, ping pong, foosball, and arcade games. There are community washer/dryers, outdoor tennis courts and a small fitness center with weights and cardio machines.

 Bottom Line

The Enclave Hotel & Suites offers much of what other all-suite Orlando hotels offer: great location, full kitchens, and numerous swimming pools. But this is an older hotel, and the rooms do show wear and a lack of attention to detail, in terms of decor and atmosphere. For families who don't intend to spend a lot of time in the room, however, the Enclave is a serviceable budget-friendly option, with nice lake views and easy access to all the theme parks.
