This isn't a bad hotel at all. The minimal time with staff was very friendly. The room was clean and comfortable, we both liked the firm bed. Our issue had more to do with where the room was. A lot of the smells from the restaurant were pulled into the room by the air conditioner, not pleasant to come back...

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. It is updated and I love the "glam chic" decor...not the normal hotel/motel decor and the room was clean with lots of towels but the beds were not the best. We slept well but they were harder than most with not much cushion. We also didn't like that we could not get a...

Our flight in Jacksonville was cancelled so we were rebooked out of Orlando for the next morning. I was so afraid that I would never find an affordable room in the Orlando area for the same night. Boy was I surprised to find a special at this hotel for $90.00 and we were directly across from Universal Studios. The room...

The room was great, the staff was friendly and helpful. Even though there was a highway not too far away, the room was quiet. They have a great restaurant in the complex. It is within walking distance of Universal which makes it even better.

Very clean and comfortable room. Beds were very comfortable. The downside is you cannot make the fan turn on for the a.c if you are use to a fan running. And they do not have Handicap parking at least they did not have any by building 2. This location is less than a mile from Universal Studios & Islands of...

We stayed here because we wanted to have a room close enough to Universal that we didn't have to drive. For the price we paid we weren't expecting to be blown out of the water, but we really were. The room was basic, with 2 queen beds, but it was nicely decorated, and exceptionally clean. The bed was comfy, and...

I've stayed at this property more than once due to its proximity to Universal and the outlet mall. It's a good choice for a local who plans to have a night out in the area. The rooms are still in like-new condition. I've noticed a few reviews from other guests where they're fussing over on one thing or another. I've...

The hotel is very beautiful. One of the best Choice Hotels I have stayed in. The staff was wonderful. The hotel management went out of his way to ensure we found our rooms. The restaurant within is beautiful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone at anytime. The price is super low and the hotel is super hot.
