This was possibly the quickest trip to a new destination that we've ever done. Arrived Friday night and left Sunday night for 2 days at Universal Studios primarily to visit the Harry Potter parks. We did not rent a car so I was looking for a hotel that would enable us to walk to the park. This hotel is just...

This hotel is nice because you're about a 15 minute walk away from universal studios. Also the prices aren't all that bad. Plus if you're hungry TGI Fridays is right next door and also offer a breakfast buffet for $10. Plus this way you don't have to deal with parking and driving to universal. Another bonus is the beds and...

It is an older hotel, but they are currently making some updates. The beds were slightly too hard for my preference, but the rooms were spacious and clean. You can literally walk across the street to Universal Studios-Island of Adventures faster than their free shuttle (which makes several stops). They have a TGIFriday's attached for the free kids breakfast. Nice...

Room doesnt really cool off in the bedroom. Stained carpet and leaky shower. Pool area isnt bad. You can tell it is updated. Also we didnt receive our coupon/vouchers when we first checked in. All in all a pleasant stay down from Universal Orlando.

We had 3 kids with us and two adults (big family) and this is one f the few hotels that allows you to still share a room rather than forcing you to get two rooms. It was totally sold out and all we could get was a smoking room (which we aren't smokers and one of my kids has asthma)....

The best thing about this hotel has to be its proximity to Universal Studio parks and Universal City Walk. My husband and I walked to both the parks and the city walk during our visit. When originally booking this hotel we were interested in taking the shuttles, however after speaking with the hotel they actually suggested that walking would be...

We enjoyed this room, we hoped for 1 king but got 2 double beds. It was very clean, comfortable, and the TGI Fridays downstairs was great! The bus over to Universal was great. You can even get bused to Disney.
