I'd just stayed two nights at an on-site hotel - which is a different caliber of experience but with associated cost. But that said - one can't get much closer to the parks and if one adds in the value of the breakfast with hot food and the spaciousness of the rooms and the free wifi - it's perfect as a Value-level hotel.
We checked in at around 5pm on Labor Day Saturday - took about 2 minutes! Our room was perfectly clean as were the hallways and lobby. We did not explore the pool area or business center. Wifi was open and good in our room. Air conditioning was fine as was the water temperature and pressure for showers. Microwave and fridge etc there for us, although we didn't use it. We liked the suite aspects with the couch, desk area and very many outlets for charging our electronic gadgets - many hotels/motels never have enough and one has to unplug something - not here!
Breakfast was ready at 7, well-replenished and with a very good selection.
The drive to Universal was, as others have said, less than 5 minutes. I don't think I would choose to walk or take the shuttle but since I did neither can't comment with details. We have a preferred annual pass with free Universal parking - and in the future, if not going at peak or moderate times, will return to this hotel rather than staying at a resort hotel. It didn't take any longer to drive/park/walk to the parks than it did from the resorts by walking or taking the water taxis.
The attendant at the desk on checkout was courteous and asked about our stay.
While we didn't make reservations through the Universal website (https://www.universalorlando.com/Vacation-Packages/Partner-Value-Hotels.aspx) I understand that sometimes there are benefits (other than Universal Express Passes) that can be achieved booking that way so check it out when making your plans. I will do so in the future.
