Great Time and easy Access to Universal

Pros: The breakfast, the quiet rooms, and the staff.
Cons: It would have been nice to have access to a computer for airline check-in but the staff did it for us so everything went well. It would be nice to hav
Location: There was a trolley that had a very inexpensive ticket that would take you down to Ripley's Believe It or Not and a bowling alley and miniature golf.
Kim, the manager, was wonderful and the breakfast and staff were excellent. They were undergoing modifications but it was quiet and clean. The room was really nice. One of the night desk men were extremely nice and printed out our boarding passes for the flight home.

Convenience and comfort

Pros: Location: walking distance to Universal and other entertainment.
Cons: Could use a mattress upgrade.
Location: Universal, of course; a number of restaurants in various price ranges; a couple of smaller, local parks.
We decided to do Universal as a family Christmas present. The Fairfield offered a room that served 5 adults with 2 queen-sized beds and a pull out sofa. The sofa bed was a little on the thin side and the other mattresses a bit soft, but for two nights at an excellent price, all were tolerable. The free breakfast was quite substantial and included eggs, bacon, and sausage, along with the usual bread products and make-your-own waffles. There were cookies in the lobby throughout the day too. You could purchase your Universal tickets in the breakfast area up until noon and also arrange a shuttle ride to the park and back. We decided to walk instead, which took us about 15 minutes. There is also a plaza in front of the hotel that includes a number of restaurants, Starbucks, and a Walgreens drug store so you could theoretically just pay for a shuttle to and from the airport and skip the car rental.

Good hotel.

We liked this hotel. The room rate was good. It's walking distance to Universal Studios theme park, and breakfast is included. The room was clean and comfortable. They had a safety deposit box for valuables, which was a nice feature. The only problem we had was with the internet service: wireless was only available in the lobby, and the wired internet service did not work in our room.

Great Place to stay with a value price tag

This hotel is conviently located near Universal Studios. Walkable if you do not have children and it is not hot outside. There are shuttles to the studios but they only travel to the parks in the morning and back to hotel in afternnon and evening. If you want a taxi it cost around $7. The room was very clean! The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. If you had an issue they would help you. They even let us use their computer to print out our airline boarding passes. The free breakfast was better than any fast food place that you could think of. Breakfast sandwiches, bagels, donuts, cereal, yogurt. A Burger King is located right there and a Wendy's a short distance away. The bed was extremely comfortable. The mattress was better than my mattress at home. The bathroom has the toilet and shower in one room and a sink seperate. The shower/toilet area was bigger than the rooms at Disney All Stars Resort. The pool is small but is kept clean. Also a Whirlpool spa. Television stations were good. Other than swimming not much else to do at the hotel or local area without a car. I would definetly stay there again if I was not staying on the Universal property.! If you are going to the Studios and it is going to be crowded I strongly reccomend that you get the express pass. You only need one day for the Studios and one day for the Islands of Adventure. The City Walk is great if you are an adult and plan to consume alcohol or eat at a nice restaraunt. Otherwise, nothing for the kids.

Great stay for the price and great location too.

We come to Universal Studios every year for the Halloween Horror Nights and had never stayed here before. I booked this room on line because of the reviews I had read from past guest who had stayed here. I was very impressed by how very friendly the staff was and how eager they were to help with any questions we had. The cookies they give out at the front desk were so good. The room was very clean and the beds were so comfortable too that I had to inquire the next morning to the staff when we were checking out as to what kind of mattresses they use. We are planning to use this Hotel everytime we stay in Orlando from now on. I want to say too that the free breakfast was more than we were expecting. There were plenty of items to choose from. I guarantee that if you book here you will not regret it at all... I know we are glad that we booked and will continue doing so from now on.\nSincerely,\nThe Lee's \nFort Myers FL

Great location, CLEAN!

Large large rooms that are clean. IN ORLANDO! I know, I didnt think clean Orlando rooms existed for under two hundred a night. Great place to stay and it even includes breakfast! The front desk people were super friendly. My only gripe is that there was no wifi in the rooms (you have to pay per minute to use a lobby computer) and there's NO shuttle service (you have to pay for a shuttle).

Nice Hotel

The hotel was very clean and was a perfect spot to stay overnight in orlando without paying a lot of money. I ranked my experience a 5 since it was close to everything and breakfast was included.
