Being a priority club member, I expect to be treated as Gene at front desk treated us. We were greated & told if we needed anything contact him. We were offered bottles of water& he has upgraded us. He contacted us to be sure we were happy. He offered late checkout to us, which we used. We enjoyed everything, but...

The hotel was really nice, with free breakfast. I want to give a special mention to one staff member, Doris, who went out of her way to help me out with finding an item that I left in the lobby when I checked out. I called the next morning to inquire about it and she searched high and low until...

Stayed at this hotel for a few days on vacation before heading to Disney for a week. The location is extremely convienient to Universal Studios and Sea World. Also close to a few restaurants, Walgreens, etc. The room was clean, but definately one of the smallest hotel rooms that I have ever stayed in.

We were traveling with teenagers and this hotel provided the space we needed. The room was spacious and comfortable. We had a refrigerator and microwave.

I recommend this hotel if you are looking for a close place to Universal. The free breakfast is better than the surrounding hotels as well. I stay here often and the check in/out is fast and easy.

The hotel was up to the normal Holiday Inn Express standard and handy for Universal, which is about 10min away. As we had a car didn't need to use the shuttle to Universal (not sure of the cost), it's about 35min by car to Disney. Rooms nothing special but clean and tidy with all the usual stuff:- TV, on suite,...

This is a very nice hotel. It was nice getting free shuttle service to Universal which is a savings of $15.00, and you got a free breakfast. So I was happy to pay the $80.00 I paid per night through Priceline. The room was large and clean.
