I'd called in advance to ask whether early check-in was possible. I was advised that arriving much earlier than noon might be a problem but to call ahead. We ended up getting to the hotel around 10:30 - earlier than planned., While a 'king' room wasn't ready then, a double queen bed was and so we went for it. The asst mgr at the front desk was very friendly and pleasant and assigned us a room on the 4th floor. Early check-in allowed us to put our electronics in the room-safe, get our stuff out of our car and get to Universal for the remainder of the day and Halloween Horror Nights.

The room was spacious and all was clean and neat - albeit showing a little wear. We liked that the front desk was staffed 24 hours and that we were also able to use a side entry with our room key when we returned after midnight. Wifi was strong. Breakfast buffet was ample and had two attendants monitoring, cleaning up and refilling. The eggs were sunny-side up and looked a little strange, but tasted fine. Other hot items were sausage patties and waffle maker. Rest was standard continental breakfast fare. We had breakfast on a Thursday morning and the dining area was ample.

Checkout was at the front-desk. Unusual that either checkout by tv or telephone or by default wasn't offered.

We were pleased with the price, restaurants close by (altho' we didn't use them) and proximity to Universal Studios parking. I wouldn't consider any of the adjacent hotel properties 'walkable' but others even closer aren't really 'walkable either and one pays a premium for the closer locations.

The room was very nice, the coffee maker didn't work though. The breakfast was nice. The manager at the front desk was a little frustrated and not welcoming however the ladies working the front desk were wonderful!

Not bad overall. Rooms comfortable and clean. Bathroom needs some work. replace or remove nonskid in tub, remove rust marks from tub. Change stained toilet seat. Replace thinned out towels and room was not well sound insulated. Could hear the entire tv program in the other room.

Thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to post a review regarding your recent stay at our hotel. I appreciate the feedback and will get my engineer to follow up on the items you mentioned in the bathroom. As for the towels, we just received a new shipment of brand standard towels for our rooms. If you would like to discuss this further or have additional feedback, please reach out to me. I hope you will consider us on your next visit to Orlando.
