If you are looking for a good value hotel close to Universal then stay here. The hotel is currently being renovated and as a a result we were in a one bedroomed suite which was clean spacious and had everything we needed for our 2 night stay.
The reception staff were very helpful as we turned up very early and our room was not ready which we expected so they stored our luggage in a secure room to allow us to go and spend the day at Universal and come back to check in. On returning they remembered us and checked us in quickly.
The hotel is a 10-15 minute walk to Universal studios and although it is across a large highway there is a pedestrian crossing so it is not difficult to get across. In all honesty it takes almost as long to walk from the far end of the car park in Universal as it does from the hotel!!
All in all the hotel is great value for money and is as close as you will get to Universal without staying in one of the resort hotels which will be far more expensive.
