First time going to Universal in Orlando with family. We stayed in 2 suites and they were very clean and spacious. It was very close to Universal (1.5 miles down the road). The Staff was great (gave us directions to nearest food joints and convenient stores). The Breakfast was good the first day. 2nd day seemed they were running out... More

We just got back from a week-long stay in Orlando and when we go back, we've already found our hotel! This hotel was perfect. As others have mentionned, the plentiful breakfast, the washing machines, the cleanliness. The rooms are large, the safe is VERY practical for keeping passports and other things we don't want to lose in the theme parks.... More

We stayed at the Country Inn & Suites for 2 weeks and wouldn't hesitate about recommending it to others. The only problem we had during our whole stay was during our check in and was only minor.

This is the second hotel we stayed at in Orlando - just to be closer to the Universal Parks. This was a much nicer hotel than the one we stayed at in my opinion. We had a King Suite on the first floor. The place was quiet, the lobby was very cozy, WiFi was faster and employees were helpful. The... More

We were very happy with our stay at the Comfort Inn and Suites on Universal Boulevard. The hotel is in a decent location in relation to the theme parks and is walking distance from the Wet N Wild waterpark. The hotel pool is small but we did not have any trouble getting a lounger (free of charge) any day. The... More

We stayed here for 1 night only after visiting Universal Studios prior to a family reunion. Our room was room 319 and it had a wonderful view of the top of Wet n' Wild.

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to Universal Studios and their 'free' shuttle. Customer Service at the Country Inn overall was great. Both in check-in and when the shuttle bus driver refused to allow our group to get on his bus to go to Universal. We had a large group of teenagers with a few separate families, and... More
