Fantistic family oriented Hotel.

Our experience at this Hotel was a very positive one!! Everything from check in to check out was such a postive experience. The rooms were very clean, (all the way down to the dishes and silverware), roomy and comfortable. The staff were very helpful, making our visit easy and simple. The television channels in the room were very appropriate for my little ones and very accomodating for them. The hotel has an excellent pool and Jacuzzi, excellent for swiiming and relaxing. I trully give this hotel a "two thumbs up" and a rating of ten.

Better than expected

I was here for my 5 days stay for spring break with my friend and it was positive experience. The room was clean and neat, had small kitchen where we can cook. The location was very near to Universal Studios, I think it took only about 5 minutes or so. Disney was quite far, took 20 minutes on taxi and about an hour on the shuttle. There are a lot of restaurants in walking distance, pool was nice. I think the hotel was more than I expected at this price.

GREAT LOCATION

The location was great. 5 minutes to Universal Studios. The hotel was very clean. The accomodations were great. Some of the furniture need improvement. The Sofa Bed was not comfortable. But everything else was fine.

You get what you pay for!

I booked this hotel because of its proximity to Universal Studios. The location is great. The staff we're excellent and even allowed us to check in early (10am) so that we could drop our bags and run to the theme park. He also offered to have us eat breakfast while we waited 10 min for our room to be ready! Breakfast was avg to slightly below avg. We loved the idea of having a suite so that our family of six could stay comfortably in one room. The room was of avg cleanliness however before making coffee in the morning I happened to look in the water receptacle of the maker and saw hard water/ gravel/ dirt in the bottom so chose not to use it. In addition, the mattresses were terribly soft and not very comfortable. The pull-out bed was more comfortable than the actual beds. This hotel room needs some upgrades in bedding and cleanliness, but served our purposes fairly well. If you need a very comfortable bed book a room with one of the other more expensive places.

The hotel offers discounted passes to the theme parks, but the one day single park pass to US was more expensive than at the park gates.

Enough space for a whole family

We are party of 5. Three kids. It's always a challenge find a place enough beds for everyone. This place we stayed had two queens and a pull out couch. It also had a full kitchen (two baners stove). The location is close to the universal. I will not recommend to have their free breakfast, but it's free!
