“Comfortable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

The service is great. The staff is extremely pleasant. The dining service manager in the dining room at breakfast is very efficient. The room was spacious and comfortable. Universal Studios is about a one mile, easy walk away. The only negatives were that the sofa bed was very uncomfortable, the washer did not work on our floor and only three devices can be signed on to the wireless at a time. Other than that I enjoyed my short stay there.

I am so glad to hear that our staff was able to provide you with great service! It is also wonderful to hear that you were able to enjoy our close proximity to Universal Studios Orlando. While we have since fixed the guest laundry available to guests, I apologize it may have inconvenienced you during your stay. Additionally, I am sorry to see that both the sofa bed and the internet access were not up to your, or our, standards during your stay. We would appreciate the chance to make it up to you, and hope you will choose us again on your next trip to Orlando!

I stayed here for 4 nights with 2 friends. We were due to stay in Daytona but changed our mind on the day of arrival, so we booked very last minute without looking at any reviews. The hotel was great. All the staff were very friendly and polite! The rooms were a great size and very clean as was the bathroom. The location was perfect for getting to universal. We walked but they also offer a free shuttle. For Disney or any other attractions you need to drive, but that's not a problem. It's close to restaurants but they have loads at universal too. The breakfast was a great selection, however was always busy so not always a table free. We loved the free cookies too. All in all a great hotel and great price! I would recommend!

My friends and I chose this hotel because we've stayed at a few Fairfields around America and loved them - this didn't disappoint! It's in a great location; a walk to Universal Citywalk and a short drive to places like Disney, Typhoon Lagoon and so on. The hotel staff were friendly, the rooms were clean and Fairfield hotels always have great facilities. We managed to clean our clothes, the pool was nice and the breakfast was lovely as always. The only problem was that the breakfast area is so small which meant we had to stand with our food and run when a family would stand up to leave the table! I would definitely stay here again.

Sara at the front desk made our stay exceptional. She had a positive and friendly attitude and gave us an anniversary card. The hotel is clean, but the shower needs updating. Everyone there was polite, and they made sure our stay was comfortable. I actually have no complaints about the hotel, and I am the worse germ-o-phobic. We had a king suite, and we loved it!

Room Tip: Rooms away from the elevator are bigger and more quiet. The view is a little better on the front sid...

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel, check in staff was excellent. Room was spacious, beds were very soft and comfortable. Room seemed clean, and smelled clean. Location is directly across the street from Universal Studios and about a 15 minute drive to SeaWorld. Great family hotel. Some construction is being done on the hotel, but noise level was minimal. Breakfast was very good each morning, and offered Turkey Sausage, Scrambled Eggs, and Waffles as the hot items on the days we were there. Also has a complimentary computer and printer if you need to print theme park tickets, airline, etc. Would definitely stay here ago when we return to Orlando. Rates were very competitive.

Ok I am biased because I am fan of the fairfield inns. This place was nice and clean with a very friendly staff.

The free breakfast bar was bad either. I would definitely stay again. Way more cost effective than staying on either Universal resorts or Disney Resorts. And not that far from either.

This is top of my list of places to stay in Orlando.

This hotel was great - nice, clean, and we had a lovely spacious room.

Miguel was definitely the best aspect of this hotel. He was so warm, friendly, and always full of tips and advice.

Unfortunately we had one negative incident. I left a pandora bracelet in the room and it went missing. We checked every day with house keeping if it came out in the sheets but it never turned up. Myself and my boyfriend spent two days turning the room upside down looking for it. It is possible that it was taken accidentally - once we found the TV remote tucked into the bed - underneath two of the sheets - it had been dressed into the bed. We never left the room messy. Either way - it would have turned up, because it was closed, so maintaining a circular shape, and quite heavy with all the charms.

When it came to claiming it on insurance - it was a no go, as it wasn't in a safety security deposit box! We were never told that these were available, - not on arrival, and not once when we checked if the bracelet had shown up, - which was usually in the morning and evening every day for a week. The first time I heard of it was when I had to get a report from the manager for the insurance, via email, and she just put it into the report, even when I emailed her back telling her I hadn't been told about it.

So Miguel is great. Security is not.

Also, make yourself aware of all the additional charges, which are standard in Orlando, but you need to know them for the various hotels in advance!
