    Taking my family in March to Orlando. Looking for a good hotel with a good rate. Prefer one with separate bedrooms and a free breakfast option in the morning. Last time we stayed on international drive, great location imo.

    Good and cheap don't really go-together...

    JW Marriott or Ritz is good on John Young.
    Disney Swann, Grand Floridian or the FourSeasons or look for a villa if you don't want to go for the expense of a suite.

    Yeah, that Marriott is pretty decent and sometimes you can score a deal.

    Are you going to the theme parks? I’ve seen people talking about staying offsite, then wind up buying a Fast-Pass (Universal), and they could’ve just stayed onsite for the same total price (since Universal resort stays include the Fast-Pass). Also some great bundled deals with park passes, hotels, parking, etc.

    Did you mean the new digs at Universal?

    https://www.universalorlando.com/Hotels/Cabana-Bay-Beach-Resort.aspx

    We usually stay at the Royal Pacific, but the Cabana Bay looks fun, it’s basically “on site”, in fact, the RP path to the park has a connector over to the Cabana Bay.

    Brand new and I understand competitive rates.

    There are always the motels on Hwy 192 west of I-4. They're definitely not high-end but aren't bad and relatively inexpensive (and definitely cheaper than I Dr.).
