We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights during our visit to Universal Studios and Disney World, occupied 3 rooms and overall quality / price ratio is good . The location of the hotel is excellent , close to Universal Studios, practically next to Wet ' n Wild and near outlets and places to eat . The latter was the main reason we selected this hotel and were satisfied .
The hotel needs some updating but overall the cost we paid seemed quite acceptable for what we received .
The downside was that days before arrival we emailed asking if we could send a packet to the hotel to pick up during our stay, with no problem they said yes . The problem was that at check -out we get the unpleasant surprise of having a $50 dollar charge for having received and stored the package . I find it quite dishonest that they didn't informed in advance that the service had a cost, if we had known we would have not accepted as I think $50 USD is too expensive for a package the size of an envelope. I was very upset about this, so I don't think I will be coming back.
