Our family stayed one night. VERY close to Universal. The hotel has a shuttle that drops you off at the park at select times. We used the shuttle for the morning but decided to walk back to the hotel because we finished earlier that the shuttle return time. Great breakfast, hot and cold items. Zero complaints.

We stayed here one evening in early July. It's close to Universal but I wouldn't consider walking to the park. We drove and paid to park. Since you will probably drive anyway...you might find something a little farther away to save some money. The hotel itself was quiet and clean. We were on the first floor and it was quiet... More

We booked this room in addition to another Universal Resort Hotel room. It is perfect for our needs. Clean, spacious, free parking, great breakfast, within walking distance to food and extremely convenient to all major attractions. Budget conscious travelers should not hesitate to stay here.

Great pool to relax after a long day at the parks. Staff at the hotel were very friendly. Breakfast is included - has a few options sausage, eggs,... More

This is a truly nice place to stay,if you are planning on visiting ,Universal ,it is less than five minutes away,and only about 20 to Sea World,there are many restaurants,close by. Please be aware the parking gets a little tight there, later in the evening ,for it looks like they share a lot with a few other pardons there.

The hotel lobby was bland, but desk personnel were friendly and helpful. Shower fixtures needed upgrade. Maintenance was not very good for wet floor and malfunctioning A/C. Some housekeeping staff did not seem to understand English very well.

Good place to stay. Room is clean. Great price for the area. The walk to Universal Studios Orlando is about 20 min. They do provide shuttle but it is on limited schedule. So we paid to drive in. The breakfast is good. When they 7 to 10am they mean it. Good place
