I consider it to be as average hotel in Orlando, eventhough rooms are big enough but washrooms in very bad conditions....not as we expects in holiday inn group. I'm just comparing my stay with other holiday-in hotels in other places.

Beautiful resort, we enjoyed our week visit there! The view on the 10th floor from our balcony was captivating. Rooms were neat and clean, room service was superb, food was reasonable, tranquil atmosphere, overall a perfect 10!

The room was perfect for our needs. There was a fridge, microwave and tea/coffee making facilities there. The beds were comfortable if a little on... More

What the Internet showed was not accurate. The hotel lobby was what a typical Hampton Inn is, but the rooms were very aged. Will most likely book another Hampton Inn than this one. And the hotel was really not that close to Universal Studios.

Leading up to my 2 week stay here i was reading reviews and was expecting to be very dissapointed.. i was thoroughly surprised though!

Stayed in 2 bedroom 2 bath suite, loved setup rooms on opposite sides of living, kitchen area, plenty of privacy. Full size appliances. Could use some waste baskets in bath and bedroom. Hallway plain, deceptive, get to room really nice. Really walking distance to universal. TGIF right next door. Parking a little tricky, read signs.
