Mobile Hotel recommendation on international drive

Hi

I'm thinking in advance and looking for somewhere to stay for our 2021 trip. The plan is a couple of nights in a universal hotel for the express pass and we are finishing with a few nights at Clearwater Beach so need somewhere in between.

I've seen the homewood suites and convention centre on I drive. My children have coeliac disease so I need to stay somewhere where we can easily access gluten free food whether this be in the hotel, near to restaurants or close to a supermarket where we can get gluten free food. Does anyone have any experience of this hotel or recommend a different one that will meet our needs. I would like a suite style hotel where we have a separate area away from the bedroom and one that has a pool for us to cool off in when we have been to the parks. Thanks in advance

There is a Walgreens not far from the Homewood suites. Its like a Boots but also has a mini supermarket within it. Plus lots of restaurants and subway and Dominos next door to Walgreens. Its a 5 minute walk from your hotel.

We returned last week from Sonesta Suites. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, three TVs! Right opposite Icon Park/Orlando Eye. Plenty of great restaurants. No complaints at all. Would definitely return without hesitation. Highly recommend.

Have you considered a villa. Plenty of space and a private pool.

A villa would be good but we just don't fancy having to drive all the time. Both me and my husband drive a lot for work so we like to have a rest from it while we are away

Same company, but not entirely the same.
