Got together with two of my closest friends for a long weekend getaway from the northeast. The hotel is very close to Universal. Upon checking inn, we were greeted warmly by the front desk staff. Our flights got in early, however we were able to check in at 10am. The room was very clean, and comfortable. After several long days of standing in line at Universal, it was great to get back to the hotel, and head over to the Tiki bar. One morning we did the breakfast buffet, which was fine, but alittle pricey. Walking distance there is a Denny's and Ihop, as well as plenty of places to have dinner at.
We did do the free Universal shuttle, but later decided to take a cab in order to save time,because the shuttle made several stops at other hotels, and took about a half hour to get to Universal whereas a cab/driving took 5 min to Universal.
We loved the home made cookies available free to guests each afternoon. We would definatley stay at this property again if we ever come back to Universal.
My only suggestion is to have coffee/tea available all day/eve to it's guests, in order not having to walk across the street to Homewood Suites their sister property to get some coffee/tea..
