“Not walking distance to Universal...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

First of all, don't be fool, this hotel is not within walking distance to Universal Studio...You will need to drive 3 minutes or take the free shuttle bus.

Nice and friendly staffs... Good breakfast, clean, guest laundry machine on every other floor...

I will strongly recommend it if you do not want to pay the premium for the on-site hotel...

Nice staff, always greeted us and helped us feel welcome. Fitness room not a priority--treadmill not working then when fixed developed another problem. Hot tub not functioning--was that due to it being July? Would've liked to soak after walking all day. Ticket person was not very friendly although she might not work for the hotel. She got frustrated because we couldn't decide on something right away and because we bought tickets online for less.

As always good breakfast and free shuttle to universal. Room was Average. Service was great. And Guest laundry on every other floor was big help. Rooms can use upgrade. Bed was nice. Proximity to Universal is great. Its a 20 minute walk. Not advisable in Summer. Close to 3 Halal Restaurants if you are a Muslim. Close to downtown as well.

Room Tip: Next to Wet & wild. Also 3 Halal Restaurants within 5 minute drive.

Green Features: Recycle towels and sheets. Not sure about laundry appliances though. Did use energy efficient lighting.

All together it was a good stay. Lots of foreigners (mainly Slavic/Russian dialects spoken by staff and visitors - we heard thar more than we heard English lol) but the stay itself was a comfortable one. Front desk was friendly, and no matter how much hot cocoa we asked for they gave it to us w a smile. Breakfast was very good both in variety& quality. Location was great just minutes away from Universal Studios etc. Oh and Cudos to the Free Shuttle Service driver -Medesto I think his name was, he was very entertaining and informative and his dedicated service really stood out in a positive way - thank you.

Stayed here 1 night whilst travelling for work.

Arriving quite late, check in was great and quick. The staff were very attentive, and asked if they could help with my bags, which after a long trip makes life easy.

The room was comfortable, though I think the building is a bit old, and showing signs of its age. Scuffed paint, tired carpet, older fittings. Nevertheless the room was clean and warming. One thing I really like about the Hamptons is most have shower screens, instead of curtains.

I left before breakfast, but the rooms were quiet, and carparking was easy and access though the side doors makes it easy to get the luggage to the car.

Room Tip: Try and get a room near the side doors on the ground floor. Easy to get in and out to the car.

We stayed at this hotel for five nights. Our room was on the fifth floor and was very quiet. There were five people in our party and I found the room to be spacious enough for all of us. The fifth person used a rollaway. The room itself was clean and comfortable but the beds are hard. The staff was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast in the morning was a good value. The furniture in the lobby/breakfast area is nice, bright and cheerful. The coffee is always fresh and available. They had white chocolate macadamian nut cookies for free in the lobby that were to die for. Very yummy. There are plenty of outlets in the room for your electrical devices. It was a very hot week in Florida so we were happy the air conditioner worked great in the hotel and room. The duvets will keep you toasty at night even with the air on at it's coldest setting. There were four plump pillows to each bed. There is a small microwave and fridge in the room so that was useful for snacks. There is a convenience store located next to this hotel for your late night cravings. The internet was fast and free. There is self parking. We would get back late at night and there would always be at least one open parking spot. If you leave the room in the afternoon, you need to let someone know if you will need your room serviced or you may not get it. We left late every day and only got maid service once on the day before we left. The bathroom is very small but was not a problem for us. There is another sink outside the bathroom which helps. The only negative thing we had a problem with was that the water pressure while showering was very low which took us twice the amount of time to shower as usual. That was annoying. Overall it is a great hotel for a good value and I would not hesitate to stay here again.

The hotel is located near Universal Park, even though you have to use the car or the shuttle bus provided by the hotel (we never used the shuttle because its timetable is very limited). If you want to visit other parks, the hotel is also of easy access (15 minutes from Sea World and 25 minutes from Disney parks). Near the hotel you will find good restaurants, namely the Brazilian Santos and the Italian Big Italy, and many outlets.

The price is good as it includes tickets for Universal parks but the rooms are not large, namely the bathroom that could not have more than 1 person at the same time, but are clean. Breakfast room is also small (food is placed in a narrow area so it’s very confusing to circulate) but we always could find a table. Diversity of food is limited and at 10 am they take everything away in a couple of minutes, so be sure that you have everything before that hour or you can be surprised.
There is no safety deposit in the room, but there are some in reception. The pool has a good size and there are towels for your convenience. Parking is free and even when we arrive late we could find a place. We had a nice stay!

For an economic perspective, if we come back to Orlando again and want to go to more than one Park, we probably divided our stay in this hotel to get tickets to Universal and other Disney or Sea World partner hotel to get tickets to all!
