Great family getaway

The location was perfect - just around the corner from International Drive, and easy access to the I-4. The suite was super clean and comfortable, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was great too.

Great location

Rooms were a bit dated, but the location was close to Universal Studios. We actually used Uber and it was only $6 from the hotel to the park. We would stay again, it was a great value.

Don't pay for parking at Universal Studios! Take Uber or a cab and it will be cheaper and easier than parking.

definitely not what I expected from a 3 star hotel

Did not appear to be what I was told through my booking! First of all, it did not appear very well kept. I was told there would be a shuttle to pick up from airport - this was not true! Second of all, I was told there would be shuttle running to Universal. Well there was but only twice a day to park and ONE time only return and that was at 6:00 p.m. Next, we proceed to elevator - I see spider crawling across rug and elevator was so small (and only one for entire 6 floors) that we had to wait to be on by ourselves just to get on with one luggage a piece. Then, we approach our room with there being couches and chairs in the hallway making it difficult to get by. I guess they were updating but however our room still had a couch that my daughter who was supposed to sleep on (petrified of spiders). I was afraid for her to sit on let alone sleep on. My husband went to bathroom and toilet would not flush. Tried to put chain on but almost impossible and that was it!!!! I was booking another room and cutting my losses! I was not going to let this ruin our graduation gift to our daughter. I would not recommend this hotel unless there are many improvements! Very disappointed in KY!
