Good location, Decent Place

We received a complimentary upgrade to a suite which I thought was great.. until I realized it smelled of smoke in the kitchen area. I think they may have ran out of non-smoking rooms. The night stand lamp did not work so we had to do so rearranging there. I was worried about noise from a wedding being hosted there but thankfully that was a non issue. The shuttle service to Universal was on time and completely dependable. The driver was courteous. TGIF provided breakfast buffet for $10 / head which was great, but asked another $2.50 for coffee which was silly. They should really add complimentary coffee bar at the hotel itself.

TGIF is right there but if you have a park 2 park Universal pass then I would definitely step out of the park to try the restaurants on Universal Walk - Disney lacks this easy way to eat something good outside of the park.

comfortable no frills

The hotel is nothing fancy but it gets the job done. The location is a ten minute walk which saves on paying to park at universal.

Great location very clean

This place was great. I usually stay at one of the Universal Studios resorts decide to give this one a try to save some money. Realistically, the walk from this Holiday Inn to Citywalk and the universal theme parks was only a few minutes longer than walking the paths from the universal resorts that lead to Citywalk. If you get a good deal on this spot don't waste money staying inside the park. HOWEVER, If you're going with younger children who would walk to the parks on their own stay inside the park because they will have to cross a busy highway in a city with a lot of drinking. Even with the provided crosswalk.

Not too bad

This hotel is ok, clean good location free parking and that is it nothing more than that. Friendly staff. The hotel l building it self is old which can make you feel that the hotel is not clean enough, but i have heard that most hotels there in orlando are old. The hotel is not so bad after all i enjoyed my stay in florida and this is what really matter.

Great Location, Good hotel, Would stay again

The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. There was one glitch at check-in where the lady at the desk was supposed to call us when our room was ready but she never did. It wasnt that big of a deal we just hung out by the pool. The location is right at the entrance of Universal and so close to dining, shopping, and everything else in Orlando. I would stay here again. Rooms were nice, they actually surprised me for a Holiday Inn.
