Holiday Inn & Suites Across from Universal Orlando

Reviewed 19 June 2012

I needed somewhere to stay to visit Universal with my cousin of the opposite sex. I booked a two bedroom suite, and left a note asking that my cousin be let in when she arrived before me. The staff handled this extremely well. The bedrooms were really good - two bedrooms with their own bathrooms and a central living area. There were two double beds in each room - it would be ideal for a family or a group of friends. The price and location were perfect. We went to TGI Friday's for breakfast. The buffet was $11 each including drinks - very reasonable. My only disappointment was the lack of espresso coffee, but this is an American problem in general. We were able to buy our tickets to Universal in the hotel lobby and avoid the queues. We walked to Universal - it takes about 15 minutes to actually get to the main gate. There is a shuttle bus, but you need to book in advance. I would definitely return.

Stayed: June 2012, travelled with family

My hubby and I stayed 7 nights in early May. It was our first visit to Orlando. The check in and check out were prompt and Front desk staff was friendly. Our room was on the 9th floor at the end of the hall way because we asked for a quite room. The room itself was spacious and very clean. The only problem we had was the ice machine next to the room. It was a bit of noisy when people still went to get ice after midnight... Great location to Universal Studios and only 20 min walk from the City Walk of Universal Studios. Not many choices of restaurants within walking distance except for the TGI Fridays attached to the hotel. But we had a rented car so it was alright. Free parking and high speed Wi-Fi was definitely a plus!

Room Tip: Higher floors and stay away from the ice machine

We stayed 3 nights for a long weekend. Front desk staff (Brian) was very friendly and had great recomendations. You really can not beat the location of this hotel. Besides being a two turns from Universal Studios parking you are close to many other great attractions and dining. You can tell that the rooms themselves are just older updated rooms, but a very nice. Bathroom counter space is almost none but there is plenty of other counter space on the desk and dresser. Bed was nice. They also tagged some pillows as being firm but they all seemed the same to me...soft. You will find pizza ads under your door, but if you read the hotels recomendations they tell you not to use them and then give you a list of delivery place they do trust. Pool was very nice with plenty of towels and chairs. We will definitely stay here again. You can not beat the price for the location!!

We stayed as a group of 8 for 4 nights in late May. We had no problems checking in, staff were friendly and efficient. There was a problem with one of the rooms as it flooded but the room was changed quickly and without a fuss. The room we had was modern with comfortable beds, good air con and a clean bathroom. As you would expect for a Holiday Inn. The pool area is nice and there are a few restaurants and bars close by. It's ideal as a base for visiting Universal Studios (across the road less than 5 minutes away) and for visiting the other parks. A taxi into downtown Orlando was around $25 and we had no problems getting one.

Room Tip: We had rooms on the ground floor which were quiet and close to the vending machines for water etc du...
