You can walk to International Drive in minutes. Universal parks are a 10 minute drive or they have a free bus every hour. Nice restaurant and mini store there. Only thing that bothered me Was no bible in the room. Sad.

Very spacious, clean, quiet, and close to restaurants, shopping areas.

We stayed for 3 nights and it wasn't bad at all. Friendly staff and nice breakfast for a small price. The room was clean and comfortable.

nice ambience in hotel lobby, spacious, clean, comfortable rooms, pools are nice, very close to universal, good value for money, although i wished price included breakfast

Good breakfast for the price. Close to Universal. Nice and friendly staff.

It was a hassle to check in, hotel staff seemed a bit uninterested. Room was good view and high floor but did smell. I found a few hairs and lip stick marks on towels. Asked for new ones took a while for that (1 hour later).

Excellent breakfast - ask about prePaying breakfast at check-in.

Only there overnight so not sure about amenities but the staff were polite, the rooms clean, and hotel was quiet. The TV seemed to be zoomed and I could not alter that but it did not prevent you from enjoying it

The bathroom was not so good only 1 switch for the lights and also the fan was very loud and the shower the knob to turn on the water was very hard and the toilet had a very slow flush

Hotel staff was great and our room was nice and clean. Easy check in and check out , minutes away from universal city walk. Great location! I would definitely stay here again.
