Best staff ever

Friendly and prompt service. Couldn't get the TV to turn on at first and called to the desk; repairman arrived within minutes and fixed it by changing outlet that it was plugged into. Front desk extremely helpful with directions to Universal and with making taxi arrangements to the airport. The only problem was with the Universal Studios kiosk to purchase park tickets. Front desk contacted customer services at Universal and we were able to pick up the tickets at the will call kiosk at the park. They also notified Universal the the kiosk was in need of repair. The room was perfect for the short time we spent in the room. We were able to walk to Universal, but the actual park was closer to 1.2-1.5 miles rather than the 0.5 miles that I was led to believe when I booked the room. We walked to and from the park all but coming back the last day, and the cab fare was less than $10 including tip. The complimentary breakfast was great, plenty of food; waffles were the best. The room was clean, air conditioner and plumbing worked perfectly. No complaints here!

There isn't an in house restaurant, but there are plenty within walking distance. We came solely to go to Universal, and Citywalk has many venues. Also along the way there are restaurants for every taste and budget.

Excellent Stay, Very Friendly Staff

Our stay was wonderful. The staff was great and helped us with our every need. They were friendly and cheery. The free breakfast was wonderful and delicious. The hotel has an awesome location right across the street from Universal and even has a free shuttle a few times a day to the park. We took advantage of this instead of paying 14.00 to park. They offer you to even purchase tickets right in the lobby before you go, so you don't have to wait in line. I would stay at this hotel again and I'm actually going back to this one hopefully in August for another vacation.

Reasonable rates & friendly staff

All motel staff were VERY friendly and accomodating. Breakfast is above average! Double queen room was very nice for the price. Roomy size and plush towels. No complaints whatsoever!

Wonderful, relaxing stay!

We were in the Orlando area for a wedding. We stayed a few extra days of R & R. The bed was very comfortable ~ this is a BIG deal to me! :-) The room was so quiet! For all we knew, we were the only ones there. One night there was even a Lacrosse team staying there with us! We would have never known had we not seen them all at breakfast. The complimentary breakfast offered a nice variety of hot items, pastries, juices, and cereal. We would definitely stay at this hotel on a future visit to the area. Their front desk clerks were very helpful. Especially [...]! He was great! Very helpful and friendly.

Good value

Staff was very friendly, complimentary breakfast was better than most with waffles, sausages & eggs. Decaf and regular coffee available free in lobby continuously. Husband liked whirlpool after a long day of site seeing. Very large rooms, wonderful beds - very comfortable. It was nice to have a refrigerator and microwave in the room for leftovers. Lots of good restaurants close by and easy access to major highways and attractions. Negatives --- guest rooms not very clean - lots of dust around edges of carpeting near wall, and mold in the toilet. If you're not allergic to dust and/or mold this was a good value for the money.
