Some good, some bad

Good: Staff was nice...especially the bartender at the pool bar. The pool area was kept up. The breakfast was plentiful for a Continental breakfast. The shuttle to the parks was fine and mostly on time. Bad: The room was not deserving of the title hotel and resort. It was not very clean. We had some sort of little bugs. The shower tended to flood the bathroom. The door hit the toilet. The beds were very firm and the pillows were flat. Overall not terrible and a decent price...but I feel better can be found at the same price point.

Dear guest, we are sorry that not everything during your stay was to your fullest satisfaction. However we have to inform that we don´t sell tickets for theme parks. There is a the travel agency located at the lobby which sell it but it´s as an outsourced service. About the tardiness of our staff we will review our service protocols and cross over with other comments that we have received in order to evaluate our quality standards. We hope to have you back on a future occasion to provide you with the service and attention you deserve.

Good but not great.

Pros: The updates were nice but were starting to show wear.
Cons: House cleaning. The breakfast was awful, the same thing everyday, the donuts were very dry,old, the coffee was not good.
Location: Location was good. Universal was less than a mile away, many restaurants, shopping not to far.
We arrived really early because we took the red eye, but didn't want to pay extra to check in early. We were allowed to lounge around the pool. The shuttle service was very limited and did not include sea world, disappointed and felt mislead. Our room was not as clean as it should have been. The carpets needed vacuuming badly. The bathroom floor board behind the door and the inside of the door was dirty, needed attention, and our toilet seat was broken, which they fixed very quickly.

Very close to Universal parks.

Basic, clean, recently renovated. Complimentary breakfast was fine for the kids. But Dennys and IHOP are walking distance.

Our experience was ok. We were a group of 4 and got two rooms. My room felt dirty like bugs. We did not see any infestation but the carpet felt old.

Cons: Parking
Location: It was close to a lot of attractions. Wet and Wild park.
Not easy to find. Need a street sign. Parking is terrible. DO NOT WASTE time on breakfast unless you only want cereal.
