Choosing a hotel over the internet is always stressful because I'm never sure if the photos and reviews are what I will experience when I get there. I have been dissapointed so many times in the past, but this time I was not. We booked our hotel through Universal's site, it was a package deal and well worth it. We stayed in room 630 and it was a double bed suite. The first thing I checked when we went in the room was to check for clean sheets and for bed bugs. There was none and room was very clean. It had granite floors in the bathroom, matching countertops and very clean. When we arrived all we had to do was give the nice young man my name and id to sign in and we were set. I've been to places where it took us forever to check in. We drove from South Carolina and were very tired, so we decided to eat at the kickback 5:30 meal. Its supposed to be snacks, but it had pasta with maranara sauce, meatballs, salad, hot dogs, baked potatoes, broccoli and cheese soup, and nachos and soft drinks and juice to choose from. We ate and it was good, especially since we were sooo tired from our drive. They also serve a full breakfast in the morning. This worked out really well cause we left early every morning for the Theme Parks, all we had to do was walk down to the breakfast area eat and leave. Food choices for breakfast were, eggs, gravy, biscuits, sausage, hashbrown potatoes, bagels, muffins, donuts, fruit, juice, coffee, belgium waffles, oatmeal, and cereal. It does get crowded after 9am in the breakfast area, but no so much that you cant get a table or anything. Eating breakfast here saved us money because we would eat a large breakfast and not get hungry until late in the day. Also, all of the staff was very helpful and friendly. On our last night there, I was awoken from some kids across the hall at 1:30am running in and out of the room. I called down to the front desk the man thanked me for calling and said he would be up right away. He was, it was about a minute later and he was knocking on their door. Not sure where the parents were, but the hotel staff took care of it and I wasn't bothered anymore. The hotel is very close to everything. The is a Whole Foods across the street, Kmart behind it, and restaurants right down the road on I drive. Also, Universals theme parks are a mile down the road and Disney is about 6 miles according to our GPS. Since the hotel is so close to I-4, traffic is heavy, but not anything we couldn't handle. We didn't swim in the pool so I can't comment on it, but it looked nice. Overall, our stay was great and would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Our room was 630, our view was I-4, but it didn't bother us at all.
