This is an older hotel, but we've stayed here every year for the past few years when visiting Universal Studios, and have not been disappointed. If you book ahead and use AAA discount if you have a membership, it's a good way to save some money (which then quickly disappears when transferring to a Disney hotel later in the week,...

Great value within walking distance for healthy people. Clean rooms with good breakfast. Roomy for 5. Nice bathroom, exceptionally helpful staff and concierge. Fitness room needs some attention - very small and stuffy.

My family and I had stayed at this hotel a month ago. It is a perfect location with a shuttle to Universal, the rooms are clean and updated and breakfast is good. So we decided to visit again except I booked the hotel for a week later. I showed up and they didn't have any rooms. M family wondering what...

Ok for a one night stay. We were booked in for longer which was a mistake. The hotel is located in the middle of a parking lot with no green space and a tiny pool resembling a prison cell. The hotel is old and tired and needs many upgrades. It would be impossible to make it look clean. The air...

Good location for universal park, good quality, clean rooms, good price, breakfast was sub par and everything went pretty smooth. Internet was horrible. The wifi was weak and couldn't use it. Other than the horrible wifi this hotel was worth the $79 per night for sure.

Was very impressed with this hotel. Clean, affordable and very convenient to the Universal Orlando Resort. Hotel was on par with the Cabana Bay in regards to quality. Only issue was the shower knob didn't work right but we made due and I reported it to the front desk when we checked out. Had a shuttle that we never used....

Wanted a place off property but close to universal studios and this hotel was very convenient. Free shuttle dropped us off in morning and took a cab back for 6.00. Free breakfast at hotel ... Usual items but it filled us up so we didn't spend a fortune eating at the park. Pool was ice cold so swimming was not...

We visited Universal Studios & Sea World 7-10 Nov & found this hotel an excellent value & location for our family of 4. Clean, updated & beds were comfortable. Kids are 10 & 12. Parking is free, breakfast is exactly what most kids are happy with and the walk to be inside either of the Univ parks is under 20mins....

We stayed here in Nov. before going on a Disney Cruise. We wanted to stay close to Universal but not pay a high amount with extra fees. The reviews were not that bad, location was close. I have to say getting free hot breakfast before going to the park was nice. Selection was good, it's free you can't complain. Stores...
