“Right by Universal Studios - fantastic location, functional hotel”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

This hotel was clean, affordable and easy to locate. It is litterally just one block outside of the Universal Studios entrance. There are lots of places to eat around the hotel and I felt safe at all times.

The hotel itself is a basica Fairfield Inn, the pool is small but great for cooling down after a hot August visit to the attractions. The warm cookie at check-in was a nice touch. We had a double bed room and if you have stayed at any budget hotel, this is exactly what you get at the Fairfield Inn. Nice and clean, predictable. There was a small bar of soap and a shampoo.

The shuttle to/from Universal basically runs 2 times in the morning and 2 times in the evening, so it's not all day. If you get hot and want to come back to the hotel outside of those hours, it would be a nominal cost cab ride or a short walk.

I highly recommend this hotel for those on a budget and just need a room to sleep.

Room Tip: Any room would be good.

I love this hotel and really enjoy this stay at Fairfield Inn & Suites Orlando, everything is perfect.
Breakfast is simple but i feel like home,room is very clean and well mainted.
The place of hotel is very closed to universal studio and outlet, just a little far to Disney and Sea world.
I will talk the excellent experience with my friend and choose this hotel again.

We stayed at the Fairfield Inn for just a quick get away and really enjoyed the hotel. It is conveniently located next to Universal and has a great selections of restaurants nearby. This was my first stay at the hotel and I will use them again when staying in the Orlando area.

We stayed at Fairfield from July 27th till July 29th.
Location: great if you go to Universal Studios, like we did and convenient for finding a restaurant for a bite.
Hotel: Nice, clean, excellent staff especially Galina and Renee. If they represent the standard of staff members of this hotel (we haven’t met others during our short stay), you can't go wrong.
Small note: if the hotel is fully booked, finding a spot for your breakfast can be a hassle.

My family and I just this past July stayed at this hotel and what a wonderful experience we had. This was our reward for moving our daughter so we wanted to get away for a few days. We found the front staff so helpful, they even solved the issue of our room without even a second thought. The breakfast is wonderful, just right and the staff person there will assist you with anything. If you do not see what you want she will try everything to help you out. The rooms were large enough yet not too large, just right and being so close to the freeway was surprisingly so quiet in the rooms(and this is from a light sleeper)The pool and hot tub was heaven after a long day in the park. While we only used the bus service once, we found the front desk staff more than willing to call a taxi for us if we wanted or even to show us how to get there by walking. One night we were soaking wet, the front desk staff saw us and offered more towels for our rooms if we wanted them. I would recommend this hotel for a getaway be it for business or leisure and yes will we be there again someday...

Excellent location for visiting Universal theme parks (i.e. a nice 15 minute walk down a landscaped sidewalk with a water view as you get closer to the parks). The standard rooms are spacious, but could have included queen size beds instead of doubles. An annoyance with the beds was that the fitted sheets came off the mattresses every night, so Fairfield should maybe look at different bedding. The breakfast was excellent and the dining area was just the right size. Overall, the Fairfield Universal was perfect for an economical family vacation at Universal.

I stayed here on our trip to Universal Studios. It's within walking distance to the park which is great to save on parking and gas! They offer shuttles to and from the park however we often missed them as they were super early at 7 am and picked up really late at 9:45pm. The hotel staff did offer to call us a cab that only cost $8 dollars which is cheaper than then what they charge for parking. The best thing about this place was the free breakfast! It was a really good spread which had everything from bagels to fresh waffles. The pool was also very nice and relaxing. The hotel was kept clean and the rooms were very nice. The hotel staff was also great allowing us to cheak in early and head to the theme park. Overall this is a great place to stay and in a great location to Universal Studios!
