Great spot for a family or large group Posted Oct 23, 2013
I've read some reviews where people were unhappy that the hotel was more an apartment than it was a standard hotel. I'm not sure what they thought "condo" resort meant, but just to be clear, you are basically getting your own two bedroom apartment with maid service and that's about it. I stayed here on a trip with a group of friends and we were extremely happy with what we got for the money we spent. At first glance the rooms might look a bit dated, but as you look around and really take notice of the amenities the start to see how well maintained everything is. I was pretty impressed by the bathrooms, the quality of the linens, and the too-numerous-to-mention little touches here and there to make your stay more pleasant. A word to the wise: Buy groceries (or at least some snacks) for your stay. Unfortunately the pickings on property are a bit slim, but there are restaurants and convenience stores not even two minutes down the road. I also should mention that this hotel is within walking distance to Universal Studios (about 15 minutes). We skipped renting a car and just walked everywhere. Our only car related expense was a cab ride to and from the airport (about $45 each way for four people with luggage).
