Great hotel close to Universal

Clean room, nice amenities, friendly staff. Liked the room better than the stay at a Universal property. Lovely pool area, complementary coffee and favored water.

This hotel was very relaxing and accomodating.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Our our experience at this hotel was surprising. The whole facility was very clean and open. The breakfast changed every morning and the lobby was quite comfortable. The room was very clean and housekeeping did a great job. The front desk associates were very knowledgeable about the area and were willing to help with any arrangements. It was in a great location, only a cab ride away from Universal Studios and other great parts of the city. Even though we went in the fall, we were still able to enjoy a drink at the Tiki Bar by the pool. All in all, it was a great trip.

Would not return to this hotel

When we arrived at the hotel, they did not give us the room we booked online. Instead, they gave us a room with two double beds & my boyfriend and I were there celebrating New Years. The staff was completely rude and told us the only room they could move us to was a smoking room! Also, the room we stayed in smelled. Very unhappy with the money we spent (wasted) and the staff!

Great Place to stay

We went for a Mom/Daughter getaway for the weekend. I was looking for a clean hotel for a decent price. I was so impressed with the cleanliness and size of the room. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in. My only regret was not leaving earlier to enjoy the room more. The staff was very nice and helpful. Will definately be back!

Very clean and smelled good

We stayed in June 2009 and had great service. The hotel is very secure, clean and smells good. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The beds are VERY comfortable. One thing though, most hotel offer a continental breakfast they only offer an all you can eat buffet for $11.00

Ruined our vacation by charging our card twice!

This hotel put a hold on our credit card two times. This prevented us from using our card the entire rest of the visit. It took them a WHOLE WEEK to get it figured out and we were without our card that entire time. They never offered to do anything about it or compensate us in anyway for their error! I would NEVER stay here again. The rooms are ok but the hassle we had to go through was awful and they could not have cared less about our inconvenience due to their error! HORRIBLE Customer service! Do yourself a favor and avoid this hotel!

Good value and good location

Our stay here was very pleasant. The staff was great. My only negative comment would be that the rug had a large ugly stain. And it didn't seem like the rug was vacuumed every day. When traveling with a toddler, you seem to notice these things a little more carefully. \n\n\n\n

Will stay here again and again!

We go to Orlando every October for the Halloween event at Universal Studios. We usually have a large group, so I look for a nice hotel for not much money. In the past, we have stayed at overpriced hotels and a few really nasty ones. This was our second year at the Hilton Garden Inn off I-Drive and it will definitely be where we stay again next year.\nThe staff was extrememly friendly and accomodating as we needed 2 rooms side by side. The beds were very comfortable and bathrooms were clean and nicely decorated. Everyday, our room was cleaned very well. We did stop by the business center to use the Internet and found it very useful. It is a great added feature! \nWe saw, but didn't eat, the breakfast buffet. Some hotels have a free continental breakfast that isn't very good. This one looked great and I don't mind paying extra for a nice breakfast. We will definitely try it on our next stay. \nLocation is great! It is right off of I-drive and less than 3 minutes from Universal. There are lots of great restaurants nearby, and there are always tons of things to do on I-drive.\nYou should give the Hilton Garden Inn a try! You won't regret it!

Excellent place to stay for Universal Studios

The Hilton Garden Inn near Universal on American Way was a great place to stay. It was clean, the staff was friendly and very helpful. They had coffee to great you in the lobby in the morning and cookies and fruit to greet you at night. The pool was clean as were the rooms. Shuttle service to Universal was prompt and easy. We had a great time. We were able to send and check e-mail at the business center. The only problem was a radio played all night that we heard in the room next door. We finally called the desk and they turned it off. It seems the staff plays the radios as they clean and leave them on. But once we called, they immediately remedied the situation.
