“Would stay again even though...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

Very nice location. Friendly staff. Everything was nicely decorated and clean. Only problem we had was the bathroom floor had not been mopped. We brought it to their attention and the problem was solved immediately. Overall very nice place to stay for a great price.

My family stayed at this hotel in March for just 2 nights. The staff was absolutely amazing. The person working the front desk was so nice that the family member who was droppig us off commented that we should be happy staying there if the rest of the staff was half as nice as he was. To my surprise they had even upgraded us to a suite. Our interactions with the staff for the remainder of our stay was just as great including the nice lady at breakfast and a member of the hotel maid service who talked up a storm in the elevator ride up to the 5th floor.

There are many choices of hotels to stay at in Orlando, I would highly recommend this hotel. The are very close to Universal Studios and they have a free shuttle, the ONLY complaint I have is that the shuttle only runs 1 time each morning to take you to Universal and 1 time each night to bring you back. The days we were there we got there after the park was already open and left an hour before it closed, I would have like to have an option to be at the park the entire time they were open and possibly to have gone back to the hotel to rest for an hour or 2 in the afternoon. There are several restaurants and a pharmacy that are in the same parking lot as well which also made it easy for us.

Thank you for taking the time to write such kind words about your stay with us! I am so glad the staff was able to make your stay an enjoyable one. I apologize that our scheduled shuttle did not provide enough trips to Universal during your stay- this is a shuttle provided by Universal Studios, and we are hoping to add more trips in the future. Thank you again, and we hope to see you again soon!

Why stay anywhere else if visiting Universal Studios, or Orlando in general? For a decent price you get a great location with only a10 minute walk to Universal, friendly staff willing to help in any way they can, breakfast included with your stay (some high priced places cannot say that), free parking (also not offered by other high priced places), and a nearby gas station, restaurants, and stores. I would not hesitate staying here again if my travels take me to the area.

First time in Orlando vacation. My family and I stay at the hotel in March 2013 was crecy busy at the hotel with all people and school student travel to Disney vacation at this time. The hotel room that we had for that time was okay for some one small. It's pretty small area and don't have any space for people to walk by in the room. As specialy when you have to do anythings with kids in the small area. For get this place if you want to have a nice and relaxing time. It 's noisy in the night from the room nere you and it was wake me up every time any one close there room door. But at lease the hotel do have a beautiful swimming pool to go and have fun swimming with my children. The location is great and not far from Disney area. Park price was chips then many other hotel. Breakfast in the morning was okay. Not to much of good and healthy stuff to enjoy. We had been stayed at so many Marriot Hotel and they all have pretty noisy aircondition. Even the one with super high class price it seem to have the NOISY AIR condition in the room. But thanks to all of the stuff at the hotel. Every stuff was very nice and friendly to my family.

Room Tip: Rooms that have NO A/C Noisy.

I stayed here in February and March of this year. Both trips the staff was extremely friendly and even assisted me with an early check in. Breakfast was average but good. On my first visit the room had a mild smell but wasn't an issue, but the room on my second stay had no smell. The location is great as there are a number of food options, close to I-4 and Universal. I'll continue to stay here while in Orlando for work.

This is my second stay at this property in the last few years...it really is the one/only place to stay if going to Universal Studios Orlando...Yes, you are not on the "property" but you not going to pay higher park prices either. My son and I stayed for three nights so we could be at Harry's doorstep when the park opened on Friday am, don't even think about going on the weekends even in off season. The secret is out even with express passes and the park opening at 9:00 am we made it to the Wizarding World by 9:15 am and the lines were already 20 minutes, so being close is really important..The hotel is literally right outside the gates of Universal and they have bus service to the park for free..it would be great if the shuttle ran more frequently, but here's the best part a taxi to/from Universal is $5-6 dollars so not only do you get front door service since parking at the park would even cost more so live it up, by-pass the parking lots for once feel like a big dog without blowing the budget and get dropped at the door. The hotel staff is fantastic, breakfast was more than just continental, and the pool and the hot tub spa were spotless. Remember you will probably spend most of your time and for sure all of your money in the park, so pick this property and just relax. Leave the hassling for the lines in the park. PS Great restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel try Miller's/Orlando Ale House literally in the parking lot of the hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms at the end of the hall are closer to your car for toting the endless bags.

This hotel was such a good choice. It is very close to Universal and it offers a shuttle to it and to the Premium outlets. There is a couple of good restaurant in the area. The complimentary breakfast was great and there was plenty of choices. They do have a whirlpool which is a lot of fun after a long day in the parks, it closes at 10pm.

The service was professional as usual, i love Marriott hotels for that.
