This is an OK hotel in a great location at a fleabag price. The furniture is a little old and beat up, but it's functional and the beds are fine to sleep in. Our rooms had no carpeting, which IMO is a plus in an inexpensive hotel because floors are easier to keep clean. Just

If you are going to universal studios, where the wizarding world of Harry Potter is located, there is only one shuttle at around 11 AM. The return shuttle was at 7:30 PM. We chose not to use it and took Uber instead-it was only about $8 each way. The shuttles to Disney were more frequent.

Greetings WeeWoody101, Hope all is well. Our hotel has a check-out time of 11:00 A.M. Although this is true, if given a prior request, the latest check-out time at our hotel would be 12:00 P.M. Unfortunately, if any guests stays past 12:00 P.M. without proper extension of the room, this may result to be a $30.00 fee. As for baggage, we do provide complimentary storage of baggage for a time period in which is necessary for you. Thank you for your question. Regards, Team Express
