“Great hotel near Universal Studios!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

A group of friends and family, eleven total, booked 4 rooms at the the Wingate by Wyndham closest to Universal, for a weekend visit to Halloween Horror Night at Universal. I suggested on staying at this hotel based on my positive experience a few years back, and I am happy to inform it did not disappoint! Although we arrived a couple of hours earlier, we were able to go into our rooms and start enjoying our weekend. Beatriz, the lady at the front desk was extremely helpful and professional. Companies should value and reward such employees. She was very welcoming, and when we asked for a specific type of restaurant in the area, she was able to offer great suggestions! Breakfast is included at the Wingate, which consists of eggs, sausages, cereals, bread and muffins, juice, coffee and fruit! Our beds were very comfortable, and the rooms are spacious, and include a safe and an ironing board and iron; internet is also included. I will certainly recommend staying here if visiting Universal Studios. Our whole group was very pleased.

Stayed here with my husband for our anniversary trip. We chose this hotel because of the location. Very close to Universal studios! I had read other reviews about how you can walk to the theme park from the hotel and you can..to the sign that is! The Universal Studios sign is walking distance from the hotel literally across the street but once you get to the sign you still have to walk very far before getting into the park. I don't recommend walking,especially if you have small children. We had to walk from the park to the hotel one night because the shuttle for the hotel was coming at a later time and we were ready to leave the park. I definitely recommend taking the shuttle in the mornings to the park. Please be aware that the shuttle only took us to Universal Studios and not Disney World like i would have liked.I am not aware or don't remember if the shuttle takes you to any other location. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Breakfast is great! Nothing too fancy but just enough to have a good breakfast.cereal,waffles,muffins etc.
