The service here is absolutely amazing! Everyone is so nice. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk to Universal in case you miss the shuttle. The room was clean and ready at the time I was supposed to check-in. The pool bar was well manned. Absolutely amazing. I would stay here again.

This hotel is more like a motel. This hotel is like the mortuary. The bed feels hard and it's like sleeping in a casket but you sleep like the dead so it's definitely the choice hotel. The fridge was not even cold, there was no microwave to heat food if you wanted to, the bathroom so small and you pretty... More

This is a great hotel for a really decent price. If you are using GPS, it will direct you wrong, as it appears as though construction in area has changed some of the roads.

My family loved our stay at this hotel. The room looks newly remodeled. The hotel is located within walking distance of Universal Studios if you don't mind a 20 minute walk. We took the free shuttle both mornings and walked back to the hotel in the evenings due to the limited number of return shuttles. I would stay here again... More
