I had a comfortable stay at this hotel..
Rooms and Amenities
- The room was comfortable and clean. Very clean - I was impressed.
- Amenities were a beautiful pool outside and patio. It was busy but not too busy.
- Parking was free and ample - sometimes it could be hard to find a spot at night, but I always got one.
- Close to some restaurants if you get hungry at night.
- Walking distance to Sea World
- Five minute drive from Universal Studios - if you take the back road, you can avoid the I4-bound traffic which is a significant advantage. It is reasonable to pop back to the hotel for a bit to re-fuel and then return to the parks within an hour.
- I-Ride Trolley is right outside if you're hoping to take public transit.
- I only interacted with the check-in staff. At first I thought they were rude, but actually, they ended up helping me out by changing my room to a higher floor so that I could have a quieter stay.
- $13 for internet per device was an excessive charge I thought.
