Girls weekend to Harry Potter world

The hotel was in a great location, close to Universal and coffee shops/gas stations, right off the highway. It also had free parking and breakfast which was great. Other than that it was just OK. The room was fine but didn't feel the cleanest, and it said they had shuttles to Universal but it turns out they only have two departures (late morning) and one return so we ended up driving ourselves and paying for parking. But it was a safe place to sleep in a convenient location, which is all we needed.

Good Value

This hotel was pretty much exactly what I expected, based on the favorable pricing, with the exception of the staff, who were superior, and the furniture in the rooms, which was inferior. From the young woman at the front desk to the food service staff to the maintenance staff to the housekeeping staff, everyone was outstanding. The furniture in both rooms (we had 2) had holes in the arms and cushions, creating a 2-star or even 1-star feeling. All in all, it was a good hotel for the price.

If you're a golfer, Shingle Creek is only 3 miles away and it is fantastic. Be ready to be pampered.
