I have slept at Orlando International so many times in recent years that I now don't even consider getting a hotel if I will only be in town for one night. - Tom

Recent Review

by Flackist
We stayed the night at Orlando Airport because we had a 9 hour overnight layover. Had planned on staying in airport hotel, but was $150 and we would have stayed 5 hours. This airport is super clean, safe and there are tons of places to sleep: long benches with cushions by the bathrooms, lots of cushioned chairs with near by ottomans. we slept on a long curved cushioned bench in the food court. Back of bench was a huge wall of plants,that provided some privacy; benches faced the center of the food court that had a huge fish tank which was soothing. The lighting was dim, and the announcements not too loud. I wore foam earplugs and was out. McDonald's was right there and opened at 0430. Starbucks was open all night. I'll never get a hotel if I have another overlay in Orlando.
