We stayed at this property because a family member is an employee and I must say we made a great choice. I did a little research prior to finalizing the booking and the hotel has lived up to expectations. The check-in was ok but the beautiful decor in the lobby is a welcome distraction even if there is a long... More

This hotel was recently renovated in the interior, but missed the boat on a few areas. We stayed in the back and the WIFI was not working. I brought this to the attention and was told that the WIFI doesn't work in the back rooms.Seriously! The decor in the rooms was very nice and modern, but there was no place... More

Our room looked like it was on a home show on tv. Staff friendly. Pool area very nice with hot tub. Plus across from Universal... More

We had no idea what to expect coming from NH to Florida I went directly through trip advisor and found what looked like a good deal. In fact with how happy we were with our experience this ended up being a great deal. After long hours in the theme parks coming back to a very nice looking comfortable room was... More

I really enjoyed staying at this location. We usually walked to Universal Studios, the rooms were cleaned and spacious. The only drawback was parking if you stayed out late there was no parking available by the rooms and if you have lots of bags there are no elevators. We loved the room and style, appreciated the proximity to everything excited... More

Room was clean and comfortable. Great location within walking distance to universal however free shuttle if you are not up to the short walk didn't partake in the amenities. Staff very nice and helpful with all our needs and questions. Food in the restaurant was surprisingly excellent.
