Great Hotel, great location!

I loved this hotel, staff was helpful, great location, close to Wet 'N Wild, and Universal, and other attractions, but not located on a busy street. Quiet, has an awesome pool/lounge area, with pool bar and they play music, which is nice! We had the One Bedroom suite with a king bed, it was clean, and comfortable. I love the in suite jetted tub, with separate shower. There is a Keurig in the room, very convenient! Free wifi, also has an option for a ethernet to wire into the internet. The only thing I didn't like, was no free breakfast. There is a resort fee for the hotel, but its close to $12 per person per day just for breakfast. Not a deal breaker, but would have been nice to have the option. Other wise, check in and check out were a breeze, hotel stay went smoothly, and I would definitely return again if in orlando!

cannot recommend

The walls in our room needed a fresh coat of paint. There were stains on the carpeting. There was dried food on the kitchen sink faucet, and crumbs in the kitchen cabinet where the drinking glasses are kept. The bathroom tile needed grout in some places. No ceiling fan over the bed. The menu at their Cabana Bar & Grill is limited. Their free shuttle to WDW only drops you off at EPCOT twice a day. Return pick up is also at EPCOT, three times a day. You are on your own to then take Disney buses to any other park you want to go to and you have to be back at EPCOT to be taken back to the hotel. Their Theme Park Shuttles DO NOT get you to and from your favorite Theme Parks.

Good Experience

Pro: We were able to check in early. The hotel changes towels and does bed making everyday. The drivers to/from Universal Studio were friendly. The bus picked us up on time. The room was very quiet (No noisy A/C sound). Free coffee in the room. The hotel is very close to International Drive. Non-smoking room. Con: We were not able to adjust room temperature, so we felt cold at night... No vending machine. You'll be required to pay for internet service/printing at business center. The hotel will charge you $11 resort fee plus tax per day (which we were aware). If the weather is bad, it's tool cold to at the bar. We did not have a breakfast in the hotel. There were shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and soap in the bathroom.

Better than expected

Was pleasantly surprised. Staff was friendly. Even called my room to make sure it was what I expected. Room was nice and clean. Very close to Universal. Could walk to International Dr. Only negative was the food, seemed pricey for the quality. But overall will definitely stay again.

family fun

Kids love it, nice pool and hot tub, kids had more fun at the pool then they had at parks. The only problem I had was once you use the two pack of coffee, you have to purchase more for your room.

Great Place to Pause Before Disney

The Point was extremely clean, well appointed and comfortable. We were pleased with the location and the lack of noise. We would stay again, without any qualms.

Hotel.... Not resort

Front desk was very friendly and knowledgeable. Room was clean... But definitely NOT a resort hotel. The food at hotel was a little pricey...and 11.00 every morning for what most hotels offer free for breakfast was a little much. The bartender was not very knowledgable as to drinks nor directions to things near hotel. Price for stay was average, other than the 50+extra dollars for a resort fee which this was far from a resort hotel. It was an okay stay, but more than likely won't stay again.
