  • Very knowledgeable about surrounding area and great for The Parks. This hotel was fantastic, free internet use in the lobby was nice and staff were helpful, polite and ready to take care of any problem you may have. Rooms were extraordinarily small, food was decent.

    Breakfast choices were very unhealthy.

  • Good location and always great, nice stay. Not bad for the price, service was excellent and the room was large and clean. The breakfasts were plentiful and set us up well lunchtime, we used the pool for a couple hours one day and found to be fine.

    This hotel is a little outdated.

  • The location is great, 8 in a taxi one way, is the best way to get there, as costs $15 to park a car for the day and this hotel also has free parking. Rooms are very well maintained, the breakfast buffet is not bad and you can make you own waffles.

    Never used the pool.

  • Ideal location for us and theres also cheap trolley buses to get you to the premium outlet stores downtown. This hotel is a great deal for the price, front desk staff is friendly and the room is basic, clean and comfy. Free breakfast buffet is mostly high carb foods.

    The sheets and pillows are very worn and old and should be replaced.

  • Great location for my needs and quick and inexpensive cab ride to Universal. Hotel is absolutely beautiful, well maintained, for the Price you just can't beat and the lobby and breakfast area is nicely decorated and very clean. Pleasant friendly staff and a fantastic base for the theme parks, shower is huge.

    Computers in business center had outdated software and had difficulty opening files, the room was spacious and comfortable. Only healthy choice was a banana and the pool was not heated.
