“Great place to stay during trip to Universal!”
Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

This hotel was great. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The rooms were in good shape with flat screen tv's and comfy beds. The breakfast was good and they kept it replenished. There was a convenient shuttle to Universal, which was free. It was about a 5 min drive to universal, an if you had to, you could even walk there. No major complaints at all, only that the hallways could have used a good vacuuming. Otherwise, great hotel for the price we paid.

There was no one behind the desk when we arrived to check in. We waited a bit for their return. Fifteen minutes later when they returned we checked in. I didn't get much sleep. The bed was as hard as a rock and the pillows were not much better. With the exception of the the bathroom, which had black mold in the grout by the entry to the shower, the room was clean. We travel a lot and stay in many hotels, most of which are LaQuintia's. We were not impressed with this one.

Stayed a couple of nights here and these are my findings...
Staff: Friendly and very willing to make your stay happy.
Lobby/Common areas: Lobby is nice and bright. Some of the halls have an old, slightly moldy smell. The carpets need replacing badly.
Room: The furniture in our room was nice. A refridgerator and microwave are nice pluses. TV is flat screen, but not HD. Bathroom was clean and simple, a little dated though (pitted faucet, mirror, etc.). The carpet was atrocious. Very old and clearly coming up in most areas. (ripples from moving furniture). No noticable smell, but just felt/looked dirty.
Food: Breakfast was done at 9a and was very basic, but good. Waffles, plain bagels, dry cereal, juice, coffee, hard boiled eggs and muffins. Nothing crazy, but it was fresh and free.

All in all, if the carpets were/are replaced this place wouldve scored higher. However, for the price and conveniece (practically across the street from Universal) it was worth it. Clean towels, sheets and hot water.

Just after checking in, a cockroach ran out from behind the TV. It was the only one we saw but where the is one, there are more. Carpet was dirty, warn, and had what looked like cigarette burn holes in it.

The shuttle to universal runs at 8:30 am and returns at 9 pm. It is about a 3 minute drive (not including the lights). You must be there at the exact time of the shuttle to get it; it does not wait.

Breakfast was good, no complaints.

I would not stay there again.
