Great hotel near Universal

Loved the hotel, very clean and great pool area. Staff was very helpful and even joked around with our kids - not stuffy. Free shuttle and great breakfast buffet (not free) rounded out the appeal of this property. Definitely recommend if you are going to Universal. I was worried about the outside noise levels from other reviews I read but we had no problems at all with noise.

What a stay!!!

When i stayed at this hotel the staff couldn't have been more accomodating. My room was gorgeous, and the hotel itself was very nice. What a fitness room!!! I would definitely stay here again, and again, and again.

Perfect Location for Universal and Short ride to Disney

The hotel staff was very friendly. I loved the location close to Universal there is a free shuttle from the hotel and close to the interstate. There is a shuttle that will take you to Epcot and then you can take a shuttle to any of the parks. I would stay here again without any hesitation.

Great location!

The view from the hotel was awesome and the heated pool was needed for the unpredictable March temperatures. The hotel is conveniently located to Universal and Seaworld. Disney and the airport are also nearby. Shuttle service is available to many locations. Times were limited to am and pm so if you want to go back to the hotel midday you still need a car. It was nice to have a refrigerator and microwave too.

Average

Be prepared to pay extra for everything. Given the number of hotels with free Wifi, $12.95 per device, per day is simply outrageous. Complimentary Wifi in the lobby was very poor, and we could barely use our Wifi devices there either. For the price, some sort of complimentary breakfast would have been nice as well. Hotel was clean, and staff was very nice and helpful. Being awakened at 1:30 am for a false fire alarm wasn't fun. Would have been nice for staff to have notified everyone before they went rushing down the stairs.
