Good base for Universal Studios

Pros: Location, clean, good room for the night we were there.
Location: All of the Orlando attractions. Universal Studios parks, Universal City Walk for shops, restaurants, movies.
We chose this hotel because it was within walking distance of Universal Studios / Islands of Adventure. About a 20-minute walk, to avoid driving or shuttle service. Breakfast was well-organized, with a good variety of selections.

Pleasantly surprised

Pros: The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Pool was nice and towels provided outside. The kids loved the hot tub and I loved the cushioned and covered cabanas. We were also able to check out some basketballs to play on the little court as well. Our room was nice and had a full fridge, microwave, oven, stove top and coffee maker. My kids loved being able to check out movies at the front desk as well...it's the little things :) The room Was pretty quiet considering we were on the bottom floor near the exit/side entrance. Computer use and free printer made it extra convenient to print out our boarding passes as well. Someone was there to help purchase theme park tickets but we already had ours but did notice other people utilizing the service. Breakfast was good with a wide variety from eggs and hash browns, yogurt, fruit salad, oatmeal, cereal, pastries... The location was very convenient to other fast restaurants and main roads. My kids enjoyed it and my hubby didn't tease me about my hotel choice so I was happy. We would definitely stay there again!!
Cons: Nothing, we were pretty happy with our stay :) ***************
Location: Great location for Universal Studios and some surrounding activities

location is ok to Universal Studios and Water Parks. Transportation is free but limited.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
I like this place, quite, nicely kept, nice grounds. Breakfast is great, varies daily. Only problem is the business center has two computers, though WIFI is robust. I will stay at this chain or even this place again. I found out there is a outlet mall nearby, and so many water parks within short walk it amazed me.

Nice place

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This hotel was beautiful. The location was convenient to all of the attractions. The staff was really friendly. We booked a king but there was no kings left. We were given a huge room instead with 2 queens. All of the employees were very accommodating.

Horrible Hotel!

Pros: Free breakfast
Cons: smelly
I was shocked at this hotel. Apparently smoking is allowed throughout the entire hotel. The hallways reeked so bad of cigarette smoke that it seeped under the doors into our room. We booked a 2 Queen bed and instead they gave us a King! There were 4 of us. They had changed our room without our consent and then they were booked so we couldn't switch. The staff was very nice though, and the breakfast was delicious. Very close to Universal, about a 3 minuted drive at the most. Definitely not worth the money though, we all have asthma and it was painful to stay there. Also, the one set of bed linens for the sofa sleeper has a blood stain on it and the blanket had a few cigarette burns in it. Not staying here again!!!

Fantastic value for the money!

After researching tons of hotels on various travel websites this one seemed the clear winner on price, amenities, and location. The rooms are well appointed with nice bed linens a full side fridge, microwave, dishwasher, and in room coffee pot. The separate room with a pull out couch was a life saver with three kids of different ages. Five of us spent three nights at this hotel and had plenty of room to spread out and relax after a long day at the universal theme parks. I was a little concerned about the noise, as this hotel is right next to the freeway. I was pleasantly surprised to find minimal noise in our room and I had no difficulty sleeping. Breakfast was very good and very convenient. To save money everyone ate breakfast before hitting the attractions, we snacked for lunch, and then ate a nice sit down supper. The service staff were friendly and attentive and there are no ""surprise"" hidden charges or fees as I had read in the reviews of other hotels. Staff kept the rooms very clean and supplied with coffee, fresh towels, and plenty of shampoo and hair conditioner. Would definitely stay again and recommend to any family visiting the orlando attractions.

Good Choice

Just returned home from a 3-night stay. From beginning to end, we were very pleased. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, helpful, and pleasant. The suite was perfect for us (a couple), and every need was met. The complimentary breakfasts were more than complete. The complimentary shuttle to Universal was very convenient and saved a $12/day parking charge we would have had to pay if we had driven there. This also made for a somewhat shorter walk than if we had driven and parked in the parking deck. It was obvious that the staff was anxious to please and to solve any problem(s) that might have occurred (none did). I can only say that we were very happy that this was the hotel we chose for our visit to Orlando.

Hi Quality, Family orineted

There's lots good to say about this hotel, and really nothing bad. The room is as nice as any I've ever had, with a true "suite" configuration. There's a door between the kitchen, eating, desk, sofa and TV area and the sleeping area (which has a separate TV.) I'm one who goes to bed early and arises early. My family is the opposite. We could coexist without stress! \n\nThe Kitchen contains a range, microwave and full size refiridgerator/freezer. The sofa in the TV room folds out, and you could sleep six if you were willing to give up some of the privacy mentioned above. Internet access was free, both WiFi and wired. It seemed a little slower than most DSL, but not remarkable so. There's even a way to print from the room to the business center. (I didn't try this). The beds were fine. The Bathroom was clean and functional.\n\nThe pool is small, and the TikiBar is at an adjacent Hilton Hotel (about a 30 yeard walk across a partking lot. The buffet breakfast was extensive, with scrambled and boiled eggs, bacon and sausage, a variety of pasteries and juisces, cearals and coffee. There's also a manager's lite dinner on Mon-Thurs. We had ravioli last night with complimentary beer and wine. It was really a decent meal.\n\nI can't believe how expensive hotels are in the Orlando area. We paid $144 with AAA discount (plus $18 in taxes). This was on the low side for hotels with non-generic rooms, but the value-minded could pay less. You get what you pay for. The overall quality of this place made it a good value, in my mind.

An excellent place to stay.

I would go out of my way to stay at this hotel again. We had a wonderful suite consisting of two rooms and two TV's. We could close the door between the bedroom area and the living area so one could sleep late or go to bed early and not bother the other one.\n\nThe people at the desk were very helpful when we wanted directions to a Walmart. The hotel provides a paper with directions to the airport, the parks, and other places that one might want to visit. The directions are accurate and easy to follow.\n\nThe breakfast was outstanding. The evening reception was also very good. It was not meant to be dinner but it certainly qualified as a light supper. They offered different things each night. There is a menu on the refrigerator in your room so you know what they will be serving. The reception also included beer and wine. I did not see any uninvited guests at breakfast or supper.\n\nThe hotel itself was clean and attractive. There was a swimming pool that got a lot of action. There was an exercise room and a room with two computers for the guests to use. We took advantage of the coin laundry as this was our second week of vacation and we needed to start it with clean clothes. The laundry area was clean and well taken care of.\n\nYou cannot go wrong staying at this hotel.
