Strategic hotel if you are here for Universal Studios. The front desk is very helpful to inform you about the near parks. There is free a shuttle to the studios, but we preferred using the car because it was fully booked for our scheduled time. Good complimentary breakfast in the morning. The room was average, no complains. I would stay...

We stayed here with a group of kids for a 4H club outing. The Hotel was Close to Universal and was very clean. We had no issues with anything. Which, is rare for a group reservation. The rooms were clean. Breakfast was good.

The facility is located very close to Universal Studios and close to other sites as well as I-4. It was clean and the service was very good. The help were all very able and willing to service our needs. They have a complementary full breakfast which was really good. It is a pretty good value.

Having a nice time here. It's super close to Universal Studios which we loved, and about 20 minutes from Disney. There are shuttles to the parks. The only problem for me is that I have a scooter for mobility reasons and was told I needed to book it 24 hours in advance. The thing is, you don't always know where...

Very clean room. Loved the selection of pillows in the room! Walls are a little thin and I could hear the elevator and voices in the hall and next door. Try and get a room more than 3 doors away from the elevator if you are a light sleeper. I really missed not having a fridge and microwave. Didn't realize...

First let me say everyone could not have been nicer. Hotel is so convenient to Universal and a bus picks up in front of the hotel and brings you back. The breakfast area is great. We were upgraded to a two bed suite. However, when we came back at 3:45 pm our room was just being made and the room...

Nice room but very small closet and bathroom. Front desk are helpful and kind. Breakfast matched the other Express hotels' breakfasts. They don't shut down breakfast right away if you are arriving just a little late or still eating.

Second time staying and same as last. Very clean and the usual breakfast. Eggs are not good due to microwave but the pancake machine is awsome and good. Staff is kind and will help with anything if ask. We will stay again when we come back. Step son works at Universal Studios and its close to park.

We just recently stayed in this hotel to take a quick trip to Universal. Our stay was only 3 days, and got off to a really bad start.
