It's an older hotel that's had some work done, although you can still tell it's age. The rooms aren't big or fancy. That being said, if you're looking for a convenient place by Universal that's not expensive, this is a good choice. There's restaurants within walking distance.

My husband and I recently spent 10 days at this hotel. The front desk staff are very friendly and helpful. This is an older building but well maintained. There is a restaurant, deli and bar on site for your convenience. They do not have free breakfast as most Best Western hotels

I'm not sure, but I paid online hotels com with cashapp card and the deposit as well when I got there. $50 hold till you checkout, however it took 3 weeks to get the deposit back on cashapp. When I use my regions bank card it went back on within 3-5 days depending on the bank.

We ordered a package on Universal's site. The package included the hotel and two weeks access to all Universal sites including skipping. Discount of nearly 50 percent on the cost to Universal Studios

It runs a few times during the day, you’re best option would be to call the hotel direct and find out how many trips the shuttle makes daily. The shuttle is free, you have to get a voucher from reception. We only used it once and managed to get on just before it was leaving, but would suggest signing up beforehand if you know the day before that you intend to use it. I think it stops at 3 other hotels before arriving at universal, takes about 15-20 mins. It wasn’t overcrowded, however we did get the first shuttle of the day, might get busier later in the day. We decided to get Uber’s instead, takes less than 10 mins and only costs around $6. Hope this helps!

"Ask for quiet rooms at the end of the hallways, far away from the elevators."
"hotels that provide security officers, should patrol hallways and parking lot regularly."
"the front desk will not mislead you on your options or choice"
"You can choose a pool view or a parking lot view. Check on line for different room deals."
"Ask if there is an adjoining door to your room at check in!"
