I really have no complaints about this hotel. Stayed here back in the fall when me and my spouse wanted to see Universal studios for the weekend. The place was super clean and the staff were extremely nice. We flew in early way before check in. They allowed us to keep our stuff locked in their staff room while we go see the park. By the time we came back room was ready and our stuff was safe.
The morning breakfast was perfectly fine to me. the comments some have about the eggs I would have to agree with. I didn't eat them. But everything else was fine. Cereal and milk, pancakes, waffles, toast, juices, etc etc. All we needed was something to get us started in the morning before we headed to the park and we were pretty satisfied.
We were given a room on the first floor by the housekeeping room and I refused to stay there because i wanted to sleep in and didn't want to be disturbed by early staff. I asked to change our room and front desk politely did so without any hesitation. Ended up on the 2nd floor. Our room was clean but a little musty smelling though. But every room is not like that. Our first room didn't smell at all.
The hotel is located in a pretty nice spot. It's like in a parking lot. You have burger king to your right, Golden Coral buffet (which i don't suggest) and another restaurant in front of the hotel. You don't have to cross any streets to get to these places. There is also a cheap gift shop in between the restaurants. Now across the street I do remember an IHOP and Carabbas. Both walking distance
Distance to Park:
Now this is more of a personal opinion. I really thought this was walking distance to Universal. Even though yes it can be. But its a mighty long walk. And in the humid weather, we weren't even about to try. Took the morning shuttle to the park (make sure u sign up in the lobby). On our way back we took a yellow cab. The total came out less than $6. Do not ask the hotel to send a cab for you. They will use a private company that charges a ridiculous price. Take the yellow cabs!
