My family stayed at this hotel from May 9th-12th in one of their 1bd suites. I am a travel agent, so I am well versed on hotels and what to expect. This hotel says maingate, but don't let it deceive you. If you are planning on walking to Universal, plan on an almost 1 mile walk. There is a free...

This hotel is one of a handful of off-site hotels that you can actually still walk to the park to from the hotel (about 1 mile or 20 min). The hotel was clean and quite normal. We've had some bad experiences with hotel stays lately, so we were quite happy with this room. The check-in person was extremely friendly and...

Stayed here for eleven nights; we paid for the the room upgrade to a one bedroom suite (though by reading the reviews; it appears they often upgrade people for free): Checking in was OK enough; if not over-friendly but; we was charged $25.00 holding fee per night; with a total of $250.00 finally held off our card; be aware of...

We stayed here as part of a Universal Studios Package and were not disappointed. We were upgraded at no cost to a two room suite which was great as it added a full sized fridge, dish washer and extra sitting room. Pool was nice, but could use some additional landscaping. You can walk to the parks from here - but...

Nothing special here. Basic clean hotel very close to the theme parks. Add a star just for location. This should be a flagship property for them but nothing much but a decent place to sleep. I checked in too late for the shuttle to the parks which seemed very limited.

We stayed here because we got a package deal to go to Universal. The hotel was ok, the halls we very plain and in need of some decorations. The ice machine on our floor wasn't even plugged in and the vending area was just soda and water, most of which was sold out. Maybe the hotel was under staffed because...

This hotel provided good value at a very reasonable price. We had the European room so it was a suite with a separate bedroom and a small kitchen area. The bedroom was the size of a normal 3 star hotel room and had a TV. It insulated you from the sound from the hallway so it is quiet. The walls...

We stayed for 5 nights knowing that we only wanted to visit Universal, Islands of Adventure and the malls. Room was clean and ticked all the boxes. Staff were helpful and there was plenty parking. There was a small swimming pool, which was nice to relax at one afternoon despite hearing the highway noise in the background! There was a...

We chose this location for the proximity to Universal. While the shuttle service from the hotel was not very convenient, it was rather pleasant walk, approximately one mile along a scenic Pathway. The rooms were large but the beds were small. overall very good value
