Jennifer Greenhill-Taylor | January 04, 2018

Vacationing at Central Florida’s theme parks can quickly eat up the best-planned budget. However, a little research reveals that there are reasonably priced lodgings with loads of free offerings, from parking to Wi-Fi to cookies and cocktails--all of which can take some strain off the wallet.


Avanti Resort

Why it made the list

Located in the middle of all the activities on International Drive, this renovated resort offers a home away from home with plenty of amenities: big pool with splash fountains, recreation area with volleyball and shuffleboard, fitness center, free parking, free WiFi, pool parties with music, and scheduled shuttles to several theme parks. A coin laundry on property makes packing hassle free.

Holiday Inn Resort Orlando--Waterpark (formerly Nickelodeon Suites Resort)

Why it made the list

The modern lobby, with its glass-roofed, kite-filled tower atrium, is typical of the hotel's low-key elegance; but elegance doesn't mean expensive. There are no hidden charges, and this hotel specializes in free stuff: free Wi-Fi, no resort fee, free breakfast, and kids under 12 eat free breakfast, lunch, and dinner when with parents. Some rooms have balconies that face Disney Springs and from which you can view fireworks--all for free.

Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Orlando Lake Buena Vista

Why it made the list

About a half mile from Disney Springs, and within walking distance from restaurants and shops, this hotel has in-room amenities and a price that make it a good bet for families on a budget. A game room with free interactive games, free breakfast buffet, and free shuttle to Disney round out the deal.

Four Points by Sheraton Orlando Studio City

Why it made the list

This hotel on International Drive near Universal offers free parking, free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, free bottled water and coffee, a laundromat (not free, but an inexpensive way to reduce the number of changes of clothing you have to pack), and a free 24-hour fitness facility. Scheduled shuttles take you to nearby theme parks.

Staybridge Suites Orlando Lake Buena Vista

Why it made the list

Not only is the hotel close to Disney, it's only a few miles along Palm Parkway from SeaWorld, Universal, and even the airport, so the frenzy of I–4 can be avoided altogether. A free breakfast and late-afternoon cocktails and snacks on some weekdays sweeten the bargain, along with free Wi-Fi, parkin, and shuttles. A large, heated pool makes swimming possible even on chilly winter evenings, and a fitness center lets guests work off any excess energy.

Embassy Suites Orlando International Drive South Convention Center

Why it made the list

The eight-story atrium with palm trees and fountains lends an air of luxury to this moderately priced all-suites lodging, which offers free shuttles to all theme parks as well as free breakfast, late-afternoon drinks, and appetizers. Unfortunately, parking and in-room Wi-Fi are not free, but the business center and the lobby have free Wi-Fi.
