Nothing special

While it is nicely positioned near the Universal theme parks, the hotel itself leaves a lot to be desired...and with so many other hotels in the immediate area (and also within walking distance), I would only recommend staying here if saving that $25 or so dollars a night makes or breaks your vacation.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure are about a 15 minute walk away, and most of that time is spent walking the Universal property.

You get what you pay for.

The hotel has a great heated and deep pool. I appreciated the attached store and restaurant. The staff were pleasant. The room was clean and had tile floors...great for pets.

You get what you pay for

Check in was smooth, we got to our room and found the tv was not working. I called and within minutes, maintenance was there. The free shuttle to Universal did not show up. The hotel is close enough to walk (30 minutes) or $7 cab ride. It is nothing special, just a basic room, no new amenities. I would spend a little more next time.

Good for the price

I was concerned about the stay after reading the reviews. But for the price the Hotel was ok. Rooms had fridge, double beds, iron and got cleaned every afternoon with fresh towels. Our room near the pool area had internet access in the room which was good considering that we have stayed in more expensive hotels in Orlando that did not have.The staff were helpful. Location is excellent near Universal. Pool was good sized and clean. The only concernd was that the carpet was very stained.

Nice place to stay

Location was great. Close to I4 & very good place to stay. The room was clean. The tv wasn't that good. Had a great stay & hope to stay there again in the future.

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.

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.

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.

Weekend with friends

Great location. Clean. Had wifi that required a password which we were never given. Room needs a microwave. Got charged for a safe that was not even touched.

Good enough

Other than the fact that my room didn't have wifi because of it's location inside the hotel, it wasn't a bad choice. It's very well located, and provides the minimum of what you need. Since I didn't spend much time there (because of my theme park schedule), just what I needed was alright.

You don't need a car to get to Universal Studios. That is very convenient if you aren't traveling with kids.
