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.

Gute Lage zu Universal Parks

Wir erhielte zuerst ein Zimmer im zweiten Stock. (204). Dieses roch muffug und feucht. Als wir nach dem Nachtessen ins Zimmer zurückkamen war alles Feucht. (Bettwäsche, etc.) Ebenfalls war im Bad der Boden nass, da die Toilette nicht dicht war. Mit Hilfe des Haustechnikers der ausgesprochen freundlich und hilfsbereit war, erhielten wir ein anders Zimmer im sechsten Stock, welches dann auch OK war. Das Hottel liegt sehr nahe zu Universal Park. Alle 45 Min. fährt ein gratis Shuttle, oder man geht zu Fuss. (20min.) Das ist morgens und abend's kein Problem. Preis Leistung ist voll OK.

Zentrale Lage

Das Hotel ist ein typisches amerikanisches Best Western. Ausstattung für eine Durchreise völlig ausreichend und vor allem sauber. (Zumindest in unserem Zimmer) Die Lage ist recht gut, es wird ein kostenloser Shuttle zu den Parks angeboten, daher benötigt man nur abends ein Auto. Parken kann man am Hotel kostenlos, auch ein großer Vorteil. Für einen längeren Aufenthalt würde ich persönlich ein anders Hotel bevorzugen, aber für 2-3 Nächte völlig OK

Sehr freundlich und super Lage

Sehr freundliches Personal, sauberes Zimmer. Das tolle ist die Lage des Hotel : Alle Parks ganz schnell von dort aus zu erreichen. Der wet and Wild Park liegt sogar auf der anderen Strassenseite Abends kann man ohne weit zu fahren überall gut essen gehen viele Geschäfte in der Nähe usw. Straße war nicht zu hören. In unserem Zimmer war alles wie versprochen vorhanden.
