Great budget hotel to visit Universal
For the price, we couldn’t have asked for more of this hotel! The room was nice, and the fridge and microwave came in handy! The onsite store was convenient for buying water and snacks to take to the park for half the price. We also took full advantage of the shuttle to Universal, which was on time each day we used it, and was a short ride to the entrance of Universal. If I go back to Universal, I would absolutely stay here again.
Another wonderful stay 11th visit
Yet another wonderful stay, as on each visit, this being our 11th for my 71st birthday. Tony the manager and his staff always go the extra mile to make us feel like one of the family. Like always, once again they made my birthday special. The hotel is ideally situated for all amenities, restaurants, shops, and public transport. The hotel itself has a restaurant, shop and bar. The shop and bar provide takeaway meals if required.
The rooms are exceptionally clean, very comfortable beds with more facilities than many 5* hotels including microwave, refrigerator, coffee making facilities, t.v. etc.
Unlike many hotels in the U.S.A. this hotel does not charge resort taxes. We have never had any problems and are now planning our 12th visit.
