“Big and bright”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

Big hotel, many buildings, very confusing in the beginning to find parking spot , find entry to the building and to find your room. Once you've master it - it's a breeze. Close to Universal (walk or convenient shuttle). Decent food choices on premises. Stayed only one night, so did not use pool or other amenities. Did not like room color scheme, too bright , colors clashing, but it's just a personal view. Some people might like it. Clean room, spacious bathroom, ease of setting comfortable temperature in the room. Comfortable bed and pillows (important to me).

This hotel had the perfect atmosphere for my friend and I. A very "cool" feel, with very comfortable amenities (very surprising for the cost). Great bowling alley, fun arcade... And good food! Worth the price- a definite must see!

Stayed for 5 days at this hotel in Continental tower. The positives were the theming, the pools, convenience of the shuttle to Universal Studios and the price. Rooms were pretty small but beds were comfortable. A big negative was HOUSEKEEPING. Beds were made every day but that was about it. No toiletries replaced after first day. Bags not replaced in trash cans. Bottle caps on floor found from previous guests. Just seemed like they did a rush job. Bayliner Diner was pretty good for quick service food but no sit down restaurant on the property as an option. $ 10 per night for hotel guests to park a car is tacky. Would have rather had it included in hotel room price. We would probably give this hotel another try in the future hoping housekeeping issues get worked out!

I stayed at Cabana Bay for a week. Everything was clean and neat. The room was comfortable and roomy. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about activities in the hotel. Also, the hotel provided daily movie nights which is perfect for families. There is shuttle service to the Universal parks and City Walk which is very convenient. Overall a great stay.

I felt very welcome by the front desk staff, and they did everything to make my stay awesome. I was originally only going to stay one night, but ended up staying 7 because of their excellent service!

The lazy river is exceptional - very fun and relaxing. The hotel is so close to the theme parks. it feels like you are at the beach -but easier and funner. I love this hotel and will be back many times!

Stayed here from August 18-21 with my two teenage girls. We came here mostly to experience Daigon Alley. We all loved the theme of this hotel. Transportation to Universal was always timely. Never had to wait very long for a bus. Beautiful pools and simple clean rooms. I recommend packing a pool tube to use in the lazy river. We did not know this but were graciously given some by a family that was checking out. Would stay here again!

I was very pleased at the accommodations and service received at a "value / moderate" Universal resort. The complimentary shuttles ran often, the pools were immaculate and the staff was friendly and helpful.
