This is an ideal place to stay with a family when visiting Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure... the location is great. It is a short drive if you have car, or the hotel offers a free shuttle. As people have mentioned, the shuttle pick up is across the street, but that is not a big deal. One thing you may want to consider as you are making plans is how often during the day you will be returning to the hotel room. The shuttle seems to make several runs to the park in the morning, then it won't start picking people up from the parks until the evening, If you have little ones who need a break or a nap around mid-day, this shuttle schedule may not work for you.
Another thing to keep in mind is that the shuttle fills up quickly. So try to make a reservation as soon as you check in to the hotel. If you arrive later in the evening, and plan to visit the parks the following morning, the shuttle may be booked up before you have an opportunity to make a reservation,
I did notice people walking to the parks from the hotel (and the other nearby hotels), but it is a long walk. Not sure I'd recommend it, at least not in the summer heat.
The hotel room was great. We actually wound up switching rooms midway through our stay because our wifi access was a little too weak in our initial room (we were at the end of the building), and both rooms were very spacious. The second room we were assigned even had two showers, which was perfect for our family with two kids. (I think it was a wheelchair accessible room.)
The room was clean, the beds were comfy, and everything seemed relatively updated and modern. There was a fridge and a microwave which came in handy.
The staff was wonderful and kind, even during the busiest times.
The breakfast was what you would expect, and the breakfast area did get quite crowded. But we always found a place to sit and it is a great way to fill up before heading out for a day of fun.
There are some fast food places and a couple of sit down restaurants nearby. Those came in handy as well.
In all, I'd recommend this hotel. It's a great value.
