I only spent one night in this hotel but I would stay again. Big room with comfortable bed, good soundproofing for a great night of sleep, everything was very clean, Internet everywhere, good shower, room came with a microwave oven and a fridge, ... Only a ten minute walk from Walgreens. Staff was very friendly and helpfull, free late check out was a nice plus! Recommended.

Universal Package trip

Very positive experience overall, meeting my expectations. Walking distance to both Wet 'n' Wild & Universal Studios, with a very good shuttle bus service picking-up & dropping-off at the hotel for Universal parks.

Super Zentrale Lage in einem tollen Hotel

Das Hotel befindet sich in unmittelbarer Nähe der Universal Studios und den Orlando Premium Outlets. Auch ist man schnell in Orlando Down Town. Das Hotel ist Klasse. Empfangsteam sehr kompetent, die Zimmer sind in Einwandfreiem Zustand, Betten sehr bequem und alles ist sehr sauber! Wir haben spontan noch eine Nacht mehr angehängt. Super Preis, wir haben pro Nacht ca. 100 Dollar bezahlt.

Nettes Hotel - Nah zu den US und IOA

Cons: Neueres Mobiliar, Sauberkeit
Das BW war für unseren Hauptbesuchszweck - den Besuch der drei Universal Parks - ideal gelegen. Von dort sind es 20-25 Minuten zu Fuß bis zum Universal City Walk. Wem die Distanz zu groß ist, kann auch den kostenlosen Shuttle-Service des Hotels in Anspruch nehmen. Das Hotel selbst macht einen odentlichen Eindruck. Das Mobiliar ist zwar nicht mehr das neueste und modernste, gemessen am amerikanischen Standard aber in Ordnung. Die Zimmer sind entsprechend groß und verfügen alle über eine Klimatisierung, Kühlschrank und Flachbildschirm. Einzig die Sauberkeit durch das housekeeping könnte gründlicher ausfallen. Das Empfangspersonal war hingegen immer freundlich und äußerst hilfbereit. Neben den Universal-Parks liegen auch genügend sonstige Beschäftigungs- bzw. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (z.B, Minigolf, Restaurants, Supermäkte) in unmittelbarer Nähe.

Zentral gelegenes Hotel am International Drive

Wenn wir in Orlando sind, dann buchen wir dieses Hotel. Es ist nicht mehr das Neueste aber sauber, gut ausgestattet und der Preis ist immer OK. Es ist nah zu den Universal Studios und zu den Outlets.

Gutes Hotel in Universal Studio Nähe

Pros: Das Frühstück
Das Zimmer war vollkommen in Ordnung. Es gibt eine Busshuttle zu den Universal Studios. Das Frühstück, wenn man es mitbucht, ist vollkommen in Ordnung für den Preis. Die Auswahl ist ausreichend.
