My boyfriend and I stayed here 3 nights during our Universal/Disney adventure. The location is the only plus that I'd give this hotel: within walking distance to Universal=no parking fees! There is a nice path to Universal from this Holiday Inn, but I'd suggest you bring some good shoes! Walking to the park and through the attractions will really wear... More

The hotel and rooms look like they could use a thorough deep clean. The rooms are comfortable, but so noisy, it interferes with your sleep. I tried to remember this hotel is across from Universal Studios, so there are lots of families and people enjoying their vacations. However, if that doesn't describe what you are there for and you need... More

Rooms are clean and spacious. Staff are very helpful and polite. The price can't be beat to be across from Universal. TGIF's is connected so they do room service. The lady in their gift shop is so nice. You can get almost anything you need in her shop.

We picked this hotel through Southwest because of location, that is the only good thing about it. We requested a king room, and was told by the front desk that there was not one to be had, after we reserved one more than 60 days in advance. We were also told none would be available through out our stay, yet... More

I stayed here this past weekend. We stayed under the employee rate and I must say I truly felt like that effected the way our reservation was treated. We were initially placed in the smokers section. That was truly horrible being that my 2 year old daughter has asthma and so do I. After trying to cope with the smell... More

Just stayed here for 4 nights with 2 friends for a trip to Disney/Universal.

Stayed here as part of a package deal so don't know the exact room rate--but it was certainly good value. (Flight and hotel were $600 per person with Westjet for a 5-day stay.) We were upgraded to a suite because the room we booked was unavailable. Chose the hotel because of 15-minute walk to Universal. It's an easy walk with... More
