Very convenient location for Universal!

Good value for location. Hotel is not particularly special but could not be more convenient to Universal. It would have been nice to have breakfast price included but there are places to eat conveniently located.

Great Location, not what was promised

The room was about what you would expect for a cheap hotel near Universal. Reasonably clean, OK in size and comfort. OK heated pool. They did not have the amenities promised, though. No microwave, beds are double- not queens, and the shuttle to Universal only drops off at 10:30 and picks up at 7:30- the busiest times of day to be there. Luckily, it is less than a mile walk, so we could get there before the crowds. Only worth it if you can get it for a screaming deal.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Show up at Universal when the doors open. Most of the rides will only have a 5-10 min wait. Skip the forbidden journey for now and ride everything else until the lines get to be more than 30 min, then settle yourselves in for the long line of the forbidden journey. We walked back to the hotel at 12:00 to nap and play in the pool, then went back at 8:00 when everyone else was leaving for the day.

Ok for the money

7 of us stayed for 2 nights and went to Disney world. The rooms were clean, staff was ok, not great, no breakfast and NO coffee! The pool and bartender were the best part of the stay.

Bugging out

We were put in a room which had a malfunctioning toilet then moved to a suite infested with ants and roaches. The staff gave us the wrong directions to our room. Now I am having to jump through hoops and wait days later for a refund

Family Trip

Great location for going to Universal Resorts. Just wish they had a coffee maker in room or free coffee in lobby in the morning. Beds were old and not comfortable. Will stay again for the value and closeness to Universal. Great pool

Great for a quick overnight

We were just making a quick stop on a road trip, needed a place to stay and wanted to be close to some nightlife. This was close to walking distance to universal city walk...we'd have walked if it were warmer and earlier in the day. Need new bedding at this hotel, but it was sufficient.

Thank goodness we only went to the room to sleep

first off the reservation that I made was in my opinon a waste of time because the room I requested was unavalible. Then in order to keep a family together that had booked they moved my room just one more time to add even more irratation. When I went into the room it was like back to the 90's. Instead of taking the old paint off they just repainted over everything. There were roaches in the room to greet me when I opened my eyes and looked over at the night stand. The tub was clogged and kept filling up with water when I took showers. The comforter had writing all on it but it was probably clean. I'ts just crazy when you have to guess whats clean and whats not. Over all, like I said, thank goodness we only went to the room to sleep. Oh and the staff is super ghetto. The two girls that were working on feb 7th around 6pm were absolutely horrible. No point of even hiring people that want to waste their lives and everyone elses. If you don't believe me go see for youself.
