Great location, but sacrifices must be made

Universal Studios is about 5 minutes away, but the room was very dirty. Multiple stains on the bed. I found a hair under my sheets, which makes me question if they actually clean the bed sheets after guests leave. If you're looking to save money, it may be worth it to stay here. However, if you're picky about cleanliness, you may want to look elsewhere.

Not a great breakfast but great location

We stayed at this hotel for a family vacation to Universal Studios. Great location for Universal and many other attractions since I-Drive is the next street over. It was nice not to stay on I-Drive directly because of the traffic. The hotel was in a quiet, nice area. We did not use the transportation to Universal that the hotel offers free because of the times offered (the park was open until 10pm but the last pick up was at 7:30pm). The "free continental breakfast" was very lacking. I suppose I couldn't ask for more because the price was great but the breakfast only had fruit loops, white bread, waffles, milk, and juice. The breakfast area was very crowded as there were 30+ people in the area trying to all make waffles (since that was basically the only option). My niece got sick one of the nights we were there and we asked for new sheets which we were told we would receive right away. They never came. The mini fridge didn't work at all the first day and we had to ask twice to get someone to give us a new one. By that time at least $25 worth of food had spoiled (yogurt, cream cheese, salmon/locks, orange juice).

Do not recommend

The front staff can never find your reservation.The manager is quite rude and unprofessional. They were changing carpets on rooms during our stay, which was loud in the morning. You can find something better for the same price...I will not return.

Amazing location!

For the money you pay you aren't gonna find a better hotel with a better location! Just block off I Drive so don't have the noise but close enough to walk anywhere! Good size rooms to! I'd be back!

Family value

Breakfast had very little in choices. The room was comfortable but not outstanding. Best qualities are the location to Universal Studios, major highways and the price, if you don't plan on spending much time at the hotel then it is a great value.
