Stress Free Vacation

Pros: Close by, reasonable, clean and well kept.
Cons: Maybe a sheet on where to find the free bus to return after a day at Universal. I would return here.
Location: Carabbas for dinner. I Hop for breakfast if you sleep later than 10 AM.
Was going to just use one room but it was a bit small for two families. Jeremy was able to get me an additional room across the hall from the first one. Two families and Grammie (me) were comfortable. Jeremy also advised on where to get Pizza and let the delivery man come to our room. Also advised on restaurant close by which was great. The bus to Universal in the morning was right there and after a bit of a snaffau we got on the bus returning from Universal for a cool ride back to Hampton. Not the fanciest Hampton Inn but reasonably priced and had the great breakfast that I have come to expect as well as kind and helpful service.

Great Location for surrounding attractions...

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, close to universal studios, nice wait staff
My son and I stayed here for 5 days taking in Universal for 3 days as well as LegoLand and Epcot. The motel is right off a main thoroughfare and had no problems getting in and out of the parking lot. It's also within walking distance of several nice restaurants. The rooms were very clean, beds were very comfortable and the cleaning staff very pleasant. Even the complimentary breakfast was good. We had no problems staying here. Would recommend this motel to anyone. The rates were superb to most of the high end places and we even walked to Universal on one day, (the other mornings were pretty cool).

Complimentary was Needed

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
Cons: Noisy
The ride to Universal Studios was less than a mile away from the hotel. I would have preferred the front desk clerks to have told there was going to be construction work done on the 3rd floor. There was construction work right next to my room and the sounds of the drills started at 8 a.m. until approx. 4 p.m. I was told by one of the employees they lost a lot of customers because of such loud construction. They didn't loose us because we only had 3 nights but people with longer stays left.

Felt welcome and clean

Pros: Free breakfast, close to theme parks
Very clean hotel, room, and amenities! The staff was very friendly and know the surrounding areas well to provide insight on attractions and directions. The bed was super comfy clean and they served an amazing breakfast that kept eating cost way down. All this at a very low rate ensures my girlfriend and I will be comming back when we visit the theme parks because it's location is practically neighbors with universal and Disney is just a short drive away too.

This was a very nice hotel for my 5 day stay.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: no public laundry room
Very close to Universal as well as I-4 so you can drive to most any attraction within a few minutes. Located on the north end of the International drive trolley stops, you can hop a ride to any of the "touristy" shops/restaurants... but yet it is off the craziness of the "Drive" itself. Heated pool is nice- No one using it much during my stay so it was very peaceful (despite the interstate traffic noise) to sit at poolside for a few hours each day. Staff were very welcoming and helpful during stay. Room clean and breakfast good!

I would definitely recommend

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
The complimentary breakfast was the best I've seen. It was clean,fully stocked and had anything a person could want for breakfast. The beds were not that comfortable but I guess it would be acceptable to most. The pool was a bit dirty with the biggest nastiest looking bug floating in it and the water was not warm. We stayed here in november so maybe it was off season. I would recommend this place.
