Great hotel and great price

My family and I stayed here for two nights last month and it was perfect. We had a one bedroom suite that also had a sofa bed, which my child slept on. The room has a full kitchen with stove, micro, dishwasher, dishes, utensils, sink and refrigerator. The room was clean, and in good shape. The king size bed was comfortable and the sofa bed was just fine for my 6 year old. It is maybe a 10 minute drive to Universal Orlando. Well worth the price paid for the room.

Dirty and poorly serviced hotel

The room only get cleaned in the seventh day of your stay. It was possible for us to write our name on the furniture by day seven and there were long black hair on the bathroom when we checked in and they were still on the floor by day seven. There were not enough towels provided in the rooms. Their strategic goal is to get as many heads on pillows and provide them with a service at minimal cost. Overall, a horrible dirty hotel.

Great for a family vacation

Overall experience was great. The staff was friendly and food at the Cabana was good as well. The shuttle service to and from parks had limited/early pick up anddrop off times, however it was free. We will definitely use this hotel again.

Beautiful rooms, unpleasant staff

First, the good: we stayed in an executive studio suite, and the room was gorgeous and very clean. The resort is conveniently located near Universal Studios and attractions on International Drive. However, we did not enjoy our stay as much as we had hoped. First, the resort is surrounded by run down lots and an abandoned building. Not exactly what we were expecting! Our window overlooked an overgrown parking lot. The staff members we encountered were rude and unhelpful. When we checked in, no one mentioned anything about parking permits. Later, when we returned from dinner, I noticed signs in the parking lot and asked someone at the front desk if we needed to display anything. Turns out we did and would have been towed if I hadn't asked! Would have been nice to know at check in. There was no hotel directory in our room. When we asked about the free shuttle to Universal, no one seemed to know (or care) how it worked. When we asked a second time the morning after we arrived, a staff member finally gave us a sheet of paper explaining departure and arrival times and locations. Staff members were surly every time we approached them and made us feel very uncomfortable and unwelcome. If you are going to Universal Studios, skip the free shuttle. It was a dirty van that only seated 12. Some families were left behind. They don't guarantee that they will pick you up on time or even have room for you at the end of the day. We ended up just taking a taxi back after a day at the park. They are conveniently located in the shuttle area and the fare was only $6. Overall, we felt bewildered by the lack of information and rude staff. It really tainted our stay.
