First of all, I wanted to give you a 5, but things happened and I could not. Check in was great. She was a peach and I am sorry I do not have your name with me. We were sent to our room and it smelled, we were immediately moved to a neighboring room. Better. The room was superb. However,...

Nice for a brief visit. Bathroom /tub area could be updated. Staff was nice ad helpful. Very convenient to Universal. Use the shuttle if you need a quick ride after a long day. Be sure to sign up for it.

The breakfast was more then I expected with fresh eggs & pancakes, hot sausage and bacon. make your own waffles, juices, coffee, serial, toast. More like a real breakfast. My wife and...

We stayed here for 3 nights, and I couldn't have had a better experience! I have stayed in many hotels, and this is one of my favorites! The front desk staff were beyond amazing and accommodating to our needs. The breakfast every morning was really good, and varied everyday, which is nice when staying multiple nights. The location is about...

The room was very clean and a decent quality. We walked to Universal Studios every day (about a 15-20 minute walk) so that was nice to save on parking. The free breakfast was adequate, though not great. When they say "french toast" what they really mean is soggy microwaved frozen french toast sticks. However, free is free and it was...

Rude manager (name: Karla), threw us out at 8 pm because we complained that our room had not been clean for 2 days. We had booked the hotel for 3 nights, after 1st night we left room from 11am to 3pm, came back to a dirty room. After 2nd night, left room at 11am, came back at 8pm to a...

We found that this hotel was perfect for our two day stay. They have a lovely man in the foyer who can advise you on the nest ticket combos amd we bought our passes there and saved money as well as not having to wait in a queue at Universal. They have a free shuttle that goes at 8am and...

Best breakfast you can have away from home. Clean room's clean pool,and nothing came up missing when we were out enjoying Orlando and kissimee. If you have time stop in and visit old town. Try to make it there on a Friday or Saturday, there's a classic car show. Worth making the trip if that's what your into.

We stayed here for 2 nights the week prior to Thanksgiving. This hotel was a great value for the money. Staff was friendly and the breakfast was a nice perk. We even had our TV connection break at around 10:30PM and the Manager found us a replacement ASAP. Thank You....

The hotel has an odor and several of the front desk staff are rude. As well as the guy who appeared to own the hotel upon us checking out. There were workers doing work on the front door (during check out time go figure) and the man talking to them was unpleasant.
