I am fairly careful about choosing hotels – for this trip we were looking for good value, budget hotels and this is exactly what we got here. I had noticed this hotel was doing well on tripadvisor and I can concur that it is deserving of its current rating.
Check-in was quick, easy and hassle free. I had requested a room on a high floor and that is exactly what we got. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean and it was kept that way by our maid throughout the duration of our 5 night stay. The bed was comfortable and although there was some noise from traffic outside, we still slept well here with good blackout blinds.
Breakfast here was excellent. There was plenty of choice and variety for a great start to the day. We were delighted with what was on offer. The complimentary coffee throughout the day in the reception area was a huge bonus and gratefully received by us after long days in the parks.
The staff at this hotel definitely deserve their special mention – they are doing an absolutely excellent job. I honestly felt like nothing would have been trouble to them. A big thank-you for that.
The free bus shuttle to and from Universal was excellent – departing at 8.15am and going to one final hotel before a drop-off at the studios with a return @ 6.45pm on line H. The drivers were courteous and helpful and I highly recommend their service. We also walked to and from the studios a couple of times in around 15-20 minutes. It is easy to walk it, with good crossings to get across the highways.
Although there is a small pool we didn’t use it so can’t comment.
There are several restaurants’ near the hotel including TGI Fridays. We ate in the Orlando Ale House a few times which was excellent and a fraction of the cost of food at Universal CityWalk. There is also a huge Walgreens pharmacy and supermarket so that was ideal to stock up on essentials for the room.
We were asked how our stay was when we departed, there was no timeshare hard sell in this hotel, and they kept our bags while we enjoyed our last day after check-out and then organised a taxi to the airport for us. Hard to beat this one!
They lose a mark from me because there was no fridge in the room, and no in room safe. Although we used the lock box service available at the front desk free of charge this was still a bit of a hassle for us - minor niggles for an otherwise exceptional stay – I would give it 4 and a half if I could.
