my children would awake in the morning complaining that things had bitten them during the night. I inspected all the beds and found nothing. On our last day there my son awoke crying something had bitten him on his back. When I flipped the blankets over, I noticed a small bug crawling around in the bed. I inspected the bug...

Thank you for your feedback. Bedbugs are rare, and it is unfortunate that this happened to your family.

Rooms were nice and very clean. Basically across the street from Universal. There is a Friday's within walking distance from the hotel, as well as a Wendy's next door. Other resturants just down the street so there are plenty of places to eat. The full breakfast at the hotel was wonderful with many options. For the price and location to...

This hotel is located just across from the main entrance to Universal. There is a free shuttle but you need to get boarding passes from the hotel ahead of time as space is limited. If you like to walk, it is about a twenty minutes stroll. There is a giant outlet mall nearby and plenty of dining options within walking...

This holiday Inn is located very close to universal. $8 in a taxi one way, which is the best way to get there, as it costs $15 to park a car for the day. The hotel supplies a free breakfast, which had a great choice, from cereal to fried to pastries and fruit. Rooms are large enough for 3, but...

Enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It's about 25 minutes from the airport and right across the street from Universal Studios.

I brought a group here for five nights this month. The breakfast was pretty good, though it would be nice to have some more fruit - there were a lot of carbs!

I think the biggest upside to this property is the proximity to universal. However, this is also a downside. I would recommend staying here if you have a small family. If you have a large family or are travelling on business the rooms are just too cramped. We had a great view, and breakfast was typical HI Express fare. The...
