The hotel is outstanding. Our kids ran around and saw the "ship", koi pond, alligators, etc. We really enjoyed the zero-entrance kids pool.
Our room was pretty average. I've stayed in motel rooms that were just as nice. We had an "awesome view" the parking lot and dumpster, but hey someone has to have that view, right?
Add $20 to your nightly rate for the resort fee. Add $18-$24 per day for parking. The resort fee covers your access to all parts of the hotel, wi-fi, and two bottles of water that are placed in the mini-fridge. There is no in-room microwave and I think that is intentional so that you can't reheat anything and must order room service or go to one of their restaurants. My husband requested a ride to meet us at Universal and they were prompt in providing a town car, but it was $40.
All in all it was lovely, we had a nice time, but I'm the type that would rather shell out the money for the room and that be the end of the fees.
