Great location to all theme parks!

It was wonderful. The beds were very comfortable, that is such an important part of a stay. The only suggestion I have is the carpets need updated. Lots of stains on the floors.

Quick Getaway

The hotel was walking distance to Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and City Walk. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We left for the parks and completely forgot to place the parking pass in our windshield. We called the hotel and the staff was understanding and eager to help us by putting a parking pass under our wiper blade. (note: there are hotel parking spotters in the parking lot who will call to have vehicles towed from the property if they don't have the parking pass displayed.) Shockingly enough, the parking pass was still under the wiper blade when we returned. The room itself was clean and stocked with the expected amenities. My family would definitely stay at this hotel again.

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.
