Motel on the Mend in a good locale

Initial impressions make this Days Inn ?project? look shabby, but there has been lots of renovation work going on. Most of the rooms and outside area are in decent condition, and the pool is in great shape. There is an attached generic diner which has OK food for an OK price, but sometimes is short staffed. You can walk into Universal with little more effort than using the parking garage without the parking costs. Add in the free wireless Internet and you are really getting your room for a steal. The I-Drive shuttle and LINX buses stop nearby, and are perfect for getting to other area attractions and restaurants. A rental car makes it even more convenient. There are dining option from Wendy to Carrabas walking distance. This is a two star place, but you are getting a little more than your money?s worth with the current prices. This is NOT the place I would recommend if you like to spend your afternoons in your room and at the pool, but has really worked out as a center point for Universal, Sea World, I-Drive, and even Disneyworld.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Use Universal's pedal bike taxis to take you down the walking path just 3 blocks from your room!

Great hotel for the price!

This was a great hotel for the price. It is within walking distance to Universal, but only if you like walking (we walked twice, took the free shuttle once and paid for the parking garage once). The rooms and beds were clean and comfortable, and reasonably quiet. Bathrooms were not as nice but liveable. The pool was nice although we didn't use it and the staff was accomodating. We were expecting much worse given the low price but were very pleasantly surprised! We would definitely stay here again.

Great Value for the Price!

The hotel staff was very accommodating. On several occasions I needed things that were above and beyond and they made arrangements to make it happen. Overall clean. Didn't expect a 4star resort for the price. Very pleased. Can't beat the price. Would stay here again.
