“This hotel made our holiday inn-credible!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

Loved this hotel. We booked through Universal Orlando vacations. We arrived very late at midnight and had no rouble checking in. They had our room ready, including our special request for no feather pillow or blankets.
The room was good. Nice size for the four days we stayed there. Wish the bathroom had a bit more counter space. Shower has great water pressure - a plus!
Hotel has free wi-fi.
There is a TGIFridays attached which we went to once for convenience. They also have a breakfast buffet for 7.99 for adults.
The walk to Universal is about 15-20 minutes. You really can't get a hotel any closer unless you book the three onsite universal hotels. Staff were friendly and the rooms are clean. Highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed here March 9 th to 16th. It was a perfect location. The 1 bedroom suite is spacious and well laid out.
The staff are friendly and helpful. When you go to buy tickets there are two desks, one is a timeshare sales desk. We wanted 4 day universal tickets. The time share office offered 7 day tickets with early park access for $200 less than the universal ticket desk 4 day regular. The catch was a 90 minutes timeshare presentation ( our 9 year old was supposed to have access to a free supervised arcade room while we were doing this). It turned out to be a 3.5 hour tour and the arcade room was a daycare with two video games. But even though we said no they gave us the tickets.
We walked to universal (10 minute very nice walk) and once we took a cab home $4 cab ride.
TGIFridays kids eat free off the kids menu and you cagey anything to go (even beer) and they will deliver to the pool.
All in all we would definitely stay there again.

When my daughter and I arrived at the hotel at 11am I did not really expect to be able to check-in, since check-in is 3pm. However Candace at the front desk was very friendly and said that although the room I requested was not ready, she could put me in another room. I agreed, anxious to begin our time at Universal, when she said, I have upgraded you to a suite and you can check in now if you like. The suite was spacious and very clean, with plenty of towels and free wi-fi. We purchased our tickets to Universal at the concierge desk and was offered the free shuttle for the next day which we declined. The location of the hotel could not be more perfect. It is an easy 15 minute walk to the entrance of Universal and being able to purchase the tickets at the hotel saved us from standing in long lines to purchase them at the park.
When we returned to the hotel we met friends for dinner at the conveniently located TGIFriday's attached to the hotel.
My only disappointment was that there was no jacuzzi in the outdoor pool area, which would have been nice to soak in after a long day on our feet. However I would not hesitate to stay here again and have recommended it to several friends, and plan on staying here again when we return next year.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 night during spring break. The facility is clean. But TGIF is the only food place closeby. Wish we had breakfast option in the hotel itself. The shuttle to the attractions get full quickly and the Guest services dont mention that you need a ticket to board the shuttle. Sometimes when you come at 8 the 10 shuttle is even full. But we did walk to universal couple of times which was easy trek. Overall well worth the money for clean safe convenient location. But it's bare bone no frills.

Stayed at 3 3-star hotels that I got on Priceline on my trip over the past week, all close to Universal, this was my favorite. The room has free wireless internet and free parking. The hallways smell like smoke somewhat and there were ashtrays near the elevators and made me worried about the room but it didn't smell like smoke at all. Room seemed newly refurbished and everything was clean in the room, didn't ask so don't know how recently. There was also a mini-fridge which was nice.
