The staff was friendly, the rooms very clean and updated. Continental breakfast was good with plenty of seating. It was an easy 10-15 minute walk to Universal which we did the first day. The second day we rode the shuttle which was convienent and nice for tired feet. Several restaurants within walking distance. Complimentary parking was nice as not all the nearby hotels offer that. I would definitely stay here again if we return.

I just returned from a 2 night business trip for some training seminars and had a noteworthy experience at this Fairfield Inn. The staff at check in were energetic, friendly and eager to help in anyway they could. In fact, every employee I encountered during my stay had a big grin on their face as if they loved their jobs. The room was clean and comfortable. Their was a short note from the manager that welcomed me to the room but was also light hearted and humorous. It included a list of meaningless facts like "the skin that peels off after a sunburn is called 'blype'". I got the feeling that the positive customer first attitude from the manager had infected her entire staff. I had the housekeeper stop me in the halleway to ask if my room had been cleaned to my satisfaction. The reason I took the time to write this is because in over 311 stays in Marriott brand hotels, I have never been so impressed with the overall quality of service. This Fairfield's staff could handle a JW Marriott or Ritz Carton. I'll be back.

I booked a 2 night stay and when we arrived fairly late on our first night, we were told our room had been over-extended by the current guests and that there were no rooms for us. However, the hotel put us up at the Pointe Orlando resort ( a time-share) for free for our first night. This was fine with us and was only about 5-10 minutes away. We did take advantage of the fresh baked cookies b/f we left for the Pointe. The next morning, we planned on going to Universal Studios, so we went back to the hotel to park and partake of breakfast which the Pointe offered at at cost and the Fairfield's is complimentary. We took the free shuttle to the Park and then later we walked back to the hotel...about 10-15 minute walk. We were hoping for the fresh baked cookies to top off our night, but alas, they were all gone. We mentioned our disappointment to Lynette our front desk receptionist and she offered to bake some for us. We went to our room and when we called to see if the cookies were ready, they weren't and we were so tired we fell asleep. But the next morning after eating breakfast and before we checked out, we again voiced our disappointment over the wonderful cookies and Max offered to bake some for us. So, in the end, right before we checked out at noon, we had yummy cookies. The beds were wonderfully comfortable and the breakfast was hearty.

The hotel is located directly across the street from Universal Studios. The staff is VERY friendly, and the rooms are very nice. I will certainly go back.

We arrived on Sunday, March 13, 2011. The check in went smoothly and the hotel was nice. No, its not a 4 or 5 star hotel, but it was clean and doable for the time we would be staying there. We paid with our debit card at check in from the entire stay. The next day we noticed that the hotel charged us an additional $70.00. When I called ask what was this charge for, they said it was incidentals, etc. Ok, I was wasn't alarmed by that because some hotels do that. Well the next day they charged us another $70.00. Then the day after that they charged my debit card $140.00 and they day we checked out they charged another $170.00. I was completely floored, I went back and forth between the bank and the hotel. The back thing about it is the hotel did not see the charges on their end. At this point, the situation is still not resolved we're still fighting to get these charges off. So word of advice, DO NOT USE YOUR DEBIT CARD TO PAY FOR YOUR HOTEL STAY at this hotel.

Thank you so much for your feedback regarding the use of Debit cards. I also feel that it is important for all guest to know that when using a debit card or a credit card, hotels will indeed require a hold for incidentals for guest. This can cause a guest to have funds held up that may be anticipated to be allocated for their travel needs. In your specific situation, the additional transactions are still being investigated as it was neither on the hotel or bank side. Our team at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Orlando near Universal does understand how this can impact our guest and do feel that this is not what our property wants anyone to experience. Thank you so much for sharing what occured.

The hotel is conveniently located across from the entrance to Universal Studios, an easy 10-15 minute walk to the ticket booths. Hotel has a ticket kiosk in the lobby and gives out cards good for discounts at Universal shops. Lots of dining options in the area , walking distance. Free parking, free shuttle to Universal. Basic continental breakfast included in the room rate, usual cereals and breads, nothing hot except waffles. Room was good size, shower and tub, plenty of hot water and towels, heat and air conditioning OK. Free wired internet in rooms, wi-fi in lobby. Sink area a bit small and no refrigerator.

This hotel should be rated higher! The hotel staff were friendly,and always with a warm greeting. The room we stayed in was clean, bright and spacious. The breakfast in the morning is extensive, and is a great way to start the day. The cookies on the front desk were also a delicious touch. We did take advantage of the shuttle to and from the Universal Parks; when we didn't, the cab fare was under $10 dollars, but the walk is manageable. We only took a cab due to severe rain one day. There is a great pub restaurant in front of the hotel that serves amazing food at fair prices, and they also service the hotel if you would prefer takeout. For the price, this hotel is well worth it. We highly recommend this hotel if you are planning on visiting Universal Studios.
