Checkin was a mess. Took 45 min as staff spent extra time upselling things to you at checkin. Room was clean but sparse. Bed was not very comfortable. The diner was a nightmare and took forever to get food

Very long checkin (almost 40 min) as there was a long line and only 3 staff working (even though there are spots for 10+ staff). The hotel is huge and I had a hard time finding my room—it turned out to get to it, I had to walk outside to get to a separate building (something the front desk person failed to tell me). When I was walking around lost, I couldn’t find any staff to help me. Finally I asked one of the guests and they helped!

Loved the music, the breakfast experience, the salad bar, Starbucks, the pool, everyone was nice. Excellent experience

Really excellent place to go to will return again, Really close to universal and city walk.

Excellent Place ,Clean ,Friendly Very Comfortable , Very Quiet, Overall a Fantastic Time

Loved the retro design of the hotel. Great pools, free movies nightly. The cafeteria was a convenient alternative to sit-down restaurants.

It is our second time staying at this hotel and it was just as pleasant as the first time. In fact, I already booked another stay for December. :) The hotel staff is very helpful and the hotel provides a wide variety of amenities. The only thing I think could be improved is the food quality served in the Bayliner Diner Food Court. Besides, A+ from us.

I LOVED the hotel. The decor was gorgeous and I loved the 50s/60s mcm style. The pool was great! Staff was wonderful! Plus it has so many amenities!

We go every year (sixth year) for Halloween but this go around the Hotel staff from checking in to the maids and food service people seemed upset for some reason...Universal Studio’s (Halloween Nights) however was a blast...probably will stay somewhere else next year!

Great hotel, close to universal, not far from Disney. Loved the food selections, pools, and the room.

Clean room. Never waited more than 5 min for a bus to the parks. Lots of food choices downstairs. Cons: pay to park and long check in lines.

Very comfortable hotel in walking distance to Universal.

Love to stay at this place! Great pools and a very laid back and relaxing feel to the place. Plus it has a bowling alley! Easy and convenient walk to the water park and free shuttle to the other parks and City Walk.
