Days Inn

We went to Universal, the next morning at 9:15 am a housekeeper knocked and keyed into our room for no reason. Other than that, everything was good.

Good

We stayed at this hotel because it's located close to Sea World, and the hotel has a free shuttle service to Sea World, Universal, and Disney! They also have staff in the lobby to help you get tickets to attractions, give you directions, park maps, brochurs, etc.

Location with a budget price

[...] made late check-in due to delays in my flight. Even though It was after 12 after midnight, I coul not sleep due to car and truck noises from the road. Next morning however, I ve changed to a better room with no noise. The room was also better. Avoid the rooms facing the highway, towards the outlet centre in this property. The rest is OK. So close to a TGI Friday's which I had all my breakfasts.

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.

Orlando visit

The room was comfortable and clean. There was a refrigerator, a nice surprise. The outside look was an old apartment building look, somewhat dirty, but well kept. There was a swimming pool. It was peaceful and it was very close to Universals. The price was right.

UNIVERSAL HALOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS

The hotel room was very nice no problems, very close to our destination walking distance or cheap cab fare. Went to Universal for Haloween horror nights/city walk had a great 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.
