Nice clean rooms with a separate kitchen and lounge area. Nothing was too much trouble for staff and they even rustled up a kettle for us. Very convenient for Universal and the free buffet breakfast was welcome too, including making our own waffles.

stayed here between 2nd August and 8th August. i last stayed at this hotel in 2006 with my family and we decided to stay here again. A wise choice as the hotel was just as good as the previous time and has been redecorated. The staff at reception were helpful throughout. The beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept in and the hotel also offers a free shuttle bus to universal studios. The free breakfast is an added bonus but can be repetitive and plastic cutlery, bowls and plates are annoying. We got a very good rate at Travel Republic. 6 days in August for £380 or $600. All in all excellent value for money. Spacious suites with two rooms, two tv's. Perfect for families looking for good value.

Stayed for two nights. Very clean, comfortable stay. Location is 10 min from Universal Studios, and is very close to all other attractions. Suite comes with a kitchen/stove/refrig/pots/pans. Pool area was also clean. There is a workout room (treadmill, some free weights) and computer room for checking email. Overall, we enjoyed staying here, and would be happy to stay here again. (BTW: IHOP is nearby - walking distance).

Nothing to complain about. Large rooms with two large flat screen TVs. Bedding was very comfortable. Rooms were clean. We did not use the shuttle, the drive to Universal is very short. No restaurant except for the free breakfast. Although the quality of the breakfast wasn't that great, it did include scrambled eggs and sausage, and it allowed for a very quick bite on the way to the park. Oh, and the staff was very nice and friendly. We would definitely try to stay here again if we were going to Universal. The price was good, I paid $117.50 AAA rate. Free internet with HHonors.

This hotel is located just off International Drive, minutes from Universal Studios. The suites are large and have very comfortable bedding. A nice hot breakfast is also included. The main reason I give this hotel an excellent rating is their staff. Front desk, housekeeping, the staff members working in their food service area. Each person greeted me with a smile and a hello. I would easily recommend this establishment to a friend or family member.

I picked this hotel after an extensive internet search for a hotel near Universal Studios. This hotel was GREAT. It was about a 20 minute walk to the park which we did several times. We did take a cab twice for $8.00. It is actually close to Wet "n Wild, too (even closer). We arrived a little before check in time but they were able to get us into a room anyway. We also got a late checkout on the day of our departure. The flexibility around our schedule was appreciated. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were really clean and spacious. THere were 2 flat screen TV's that we never watched and a kitchen that we barely used but it was great have a suite so everything wasn't crammed together. Breakfast was crowded but they kept it stocked past the posted closing time. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Request a room on the opposite side of the freeway.
