This hotel is brilliant, the rooms are spacious, clean and modern. The room was cleaned every single day to a high standard. There is a small security deposit of $50 which is low in companion to other hotels. Free wifi which is also a benefit. Check in was smooth and simple.

I was very pleasantly surprised how nice this hotel... especially for the price! The room (single King) was very spacious, well appointed, pleasantly decorated. Staff were very courteous and attentive. Location is convenient to the freeway and attractions, without being stuffed downtown somewhere. Only had one problem with a room service charge appearing on my bill at checkout. Staff fixed... More

Overall not a bad experience. Breakfast was quite alright also. Only one problem, they didn't tell us and we didn't ask but they charged us separately at the end for house keeping, which came as a surprise. Don't know who is to blame for that. Other wise the staff was very very friendly.

We have been staying in this hotel for the last 6 years whilst visiting Florida. This is in a excellent location for Universal Studio. They offer a free shuttle there and back but we often walk as it is only about 20 minute walk from Universal studios. There are lots of places to eat and drink near by. You can... More

Average hotel with excellent customer service. Arrived 4 hours earlier than check in time and was able to check in early. Room was adequate for price but a little cramped. Pillows are smaller than standard size so bring your own if possible. Room was damp/musty but Damp-Rid took care of it. Parking is extremely limited. Breakfast was nice but juice... More

If you want a comfortable room that is clean to just sleep and visit the parks then this is the hotel for you. Renovations are currently taking place in some areas of the hotel. The first impression of the hotel lets it down, together with the dreary colour scheme and carpet (which needs a steam clean and good hovering). It... More

Very nice hotel, especially for the price. Comfortable, interior corridor room, which is important in humid Florida. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. This was my first time and I just stayed one night for my birthday with my daughter. I hope to stay again next year and enjoy more of the amenities.

Very friendly staff and a really helpful concierge. Check in was quick and easy. Just a 5 minute walk to International Drive and a 8-10 minute walk to Universal and Islands of Adventure. This was approximately $8 in a taxi. Rooms were large and clean. The adjoining restaurant served great breakfast for $10; an eat all you like style serving... More
