Orlando Airport Review

(Guest Review) I liked that they had a hotel inside the airport. I slept at the gate to save money, but the option was there. Also, security was a breeze. No issues.

Orlando Airport Review

(Guest Review) this may well be my favourite airport. I have passed through many times over the years. spotlessly clean. can't fault any staff member. quiet, light and bright doesn't feel crowded. good food court and a couple of other restaurants also a good sports bar. great transport links, comfortable and plentiful seating. armchairs and benches that are good for a nap. as with the whole usa security is a nightmare, but what can you do? after a couple of visits camped out I decided to try the hotel that forms part of the terminal, great hotel all rooms have a balcony either facing out of the building or down onto the terminal itself, very coo for people watching. also has a decent small gym and lovely sunny pool. have also been lucky enough to get a day room at the hotel during a daytime layover, heaven!

Orlando Airport Review

(Guest Review) I dislike this airport very much. There are little food options available, unless you want the typical 'chains'. Even if you do want to eat at these places, the people are rude, not courteous, and the selection of food is subpar. There is a definite lack of seating at the gates. They have a 'hub and spoke' type of terminal and at the 'hub' there is plenty of seating but no one is using it because they are so far from the gates.

Orlando Airport Review

(Guest Review) SA I.D. checking was horribly disorganized worst I've seen at any airport. Took more than 1 hour to get through TSA on a non-holiday weekday. Disorganized mob (i.e. no lines or supervision) when approaching the TSA ID checking stations. Then, the stations closest to the x-ray maze lane allowed their travelers to cut the line and enter the maze directly, instead of going behind the people at the farthest TSA station. Therefore the people at the farthest station (where I was) could not move forward while those at the stations closest to the maze kept cutting through. So despite checking my luggage 90 minutes before flight time, I missed my flight and had to spend the night at the airport. There is a HYATT hotel inside the terminal, for those who can afford it (I could not). The TSA stations close after the day's last flight, so if you leave the boarding gate area, you won't be readmitted until TSA opens at 5 AM. The main terminal waiting area and a few fast food shops remained open all night, and there were plenty of electrical outlets for charging electronics. Other than the hard floor, no place to lie down (armchairs only).

police sweeping through airport

(Guest Review) The police are sweeping through the Orlando airport 9 Investigates homeless staying at Orlando International Airport WFTV9 Thursday 5th November, 2015... Orlando International Airport is trying to prevent transients from taking the bus and spending the night there. Convicted sex offender Robert Meineke told Channel 9's Kathi Belich that the airport is a great place to spend the night. 'There's a bunch of people; they stay out there constantly. They take bird baths in the restrooms downstairs,' Meineke said. Meineke can't get into a shelter because he's on probation for not registering as a sex offender, and he said he doesn't want to get caught camping downtown. 'I just wanted to see if it would work. I had nowhere else to go,' Meineke said. 'It worked. Nobody questioned me, so I tried it again and again.' Channel 9 found a homeless prep cook who said it is working for him. It was after midnight. He blended in with arriving tourists and was even able to charge his cellphone. 'It's been so hard, and I'm trying to make it until I get paid again. (I'll) find me a room and start over again,' said the man, who didn't want to be identified. The tearful man said he had nowhere to sleep that night. 'I didn't know I was going to be in this situation today,' he said. Belich learned that a number of homeless take the last night Lynx bus from the outlet malls to the airport. The next bus doesn't arrive at the airport until 5 a.m. If they get caught trespassing, as one woman did while Belich was at the airport, they still spend the night. Three months ago Orlando police said they caught a homeless man in the airport with a loaded gun in his pocket around mi continued >>
