The purpose of our trip was to go to Universal Studios, therefore the location of this hotel is perfect. It takes about 10 - 15 minutes to walk and it is a nice pathway to get there, it may seem longer on the way back after a day at the park. We never used the shuttle. Pool was clean and never over crowded, great way to cool off after a long day at the parks. Having a restaurant attached is handy. We had a standard double room which had a small fridge it would be nice if they added a microwave, however the room served the purpose for the amount of time you spend in the room awake. Beds were very comfortable. Walgreens just a short walk up the street as well as liquor store and farther up a few fast food restaurants. For us the Hotel provided what we needed, but the internet service was very slow. Our room was on the 3rd floor and had a view of the pool which was very nice. The I-trolley pick up was across the street for a quick and cheap way to get to the outlet shops.
