My sister and I stay 3 night here while visiting universal studios. I called the hotel about a week before the trip to confirm the room and they only had me down for 2 nights not three. Seance I booked the trip as a universal studios package I call the park and they were able to fix the issue. I called the hotel back the next day and they had me down for 3 nights.
Once we arrived the check is was quick and easy. The lobby was inviting but the halls were very uninviting so bad that I was worried about the room being the same but the room was perfect bed were great, both of us slept great all 3 nights. The room was clean for the most part a small amount of mold in the shower other than that it was fine.
We eat at at the TGIfridays for dinner all three nights and breakfast all three mornings the dinner meals were great and the prices were very fare the breakfast was good too nothing special. The free wifi was great the first night slow the second night and didn't work the last night kinda a pain but didn't bother us too much.
The location was great for us a twenty minute walk to universal and iride trolley pickup right in front of the hotel. The front desk was very helpful with info and they let me print my boarding pass right from there computer right at the front counter without a fee.
I would highly recommend this hotel if visiting universal studios and don't want to stay at one of there very expensive resorts.
