Good for your money

Hotel is good location if you are going to universal. Only a $5 taxi ride away or has free shuttle to all parks. Room is decent size and seemed clean. Inexpensive compared to other hotels. I have stayed twice and I would stay again. Just wish overnight parking for guests wasn't $15 per night I think that's a little excessive.

Bed was nice and comfortable. Couch had multiple weird stains. Staff was quite rude. Transportation to universal stopped at 8:30. Do not think we will be staying there again.

Great location, close to USF and IOA. Room was not ready when we checked in and we did not get a call or text to let us know when it was. No big deal since we walked over to City Walk and had a meal and then we did HHN until late. Free cookies were warm and delicious! Room was clean and comfortable. Highly recommend.

Definite Return Stay

I had stayed in the location many years ago and I liked it then. Since DoubleTree by Hilton has it now this location is perfect for a low priced getaway across the street from Universal Studios. We love the area it is in the neighborhoods surrounding Universal are very nice and there are many shopping opportunities off the tourist trap avenues. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The only knock we had was that the mattress was not as comfy as a true Hilton Hotel mattress. Our room was kept clean during our stay and we ran into no issues. The pizza from the Uno Express in the courtyard was very good. All of the staff that we came in contact with were very professional, happy, and courteous. We will no doubt stay here again.

Nice hotel

My husband and I only spent one night here during our trip to Universal Studios, and we had very few complaints overall. The shuttle to the theme park left early both days, so we missed them, which was unfortunate, but the park is only a few minute walk away. The room was decently outdated, but was very clean. Overall, it was a good experience.

Good location for Universal visitors

We were not given cookies upon arrival! There is a free shuttle that goes to Universal at certain times. The rooms are big and spacious , even though there is a smell present. Nice view if you are facing Universal, at night you can see the fireworks.

Dining tip: In Hotel

There is a breakfast buffet at the hotel. It has a good variety and good quality of food. You will be charged 18% gratuity, so do not be surprised how nice the servers are for no reason.

Birthday getaway

This place was in a great location to universal studios. Down side is the rooms are out dated and our bathtub was clogged and the hallways smelled moldy and old. But other than that the hotel staff was helpful and friendly you pretty much get what you paid for.

Decent Vacation Stay

This was a decent stay. The hotel was nice enough and about what I expected at the price. Nothing more nothing less. Starbucks in the hotel was nice but they don't take gift cards so you aren't able to earn points at this location. Stayed at the Royal Pacific one night and this hotel was about the same if you are rating strictly on the room and hotel at a fraction of the cost. My only main problem was that I was charged double for charges I'm still waiting to hear back on. When I checked out I was told that there was nothing on my bill and then I found out that I am charged $130 extra. Not sure where that comes from. So be careful with them.

Time-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Use the Universal Parking garage walkways. They have moving walkways so it's not nearly as bad of a walk.
