Ive just come back from two weeks staying at the Holiday Inn opposite Universal.
We travelled as a family, Mom, Dad and 5yo son.
Great location - only 15 minute walk to Universal down a good footpath. We did it several times in the day and evening, no problem (a little hot though on occasion!).
There are several restaurants very close (within walking distance if you don't have a car).
The rooms are quiet and comfortable we got a good nights sleep every night (although the wife did complain about my snoring!)
Front desk staff are helpful and pleasant.
There is a small pool if you fancy a quick swim, but its not the kind of pool you would spend the day sitting around.
Free parking and Wifi (which we used every day)
TGI Fridays the attached restaurant is worn and tired it desperately needs an update and isn't the cleanest. Although it is very busy most nights and the staff are helpful and pleasant.
There isn't much else to entertain you at the hotel apart from a small games room.
Limited TV channels.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend.More
