We were looking for a hotel that was close to Universal so we wouldn't have to rent a vehicle for our family of 7 and this was perfect! it is a 20 min walk by the time you make it to the Universal gate but if you are used to walking (which you do in the park all day long) then this will be no problem. The hotel does have a shuttle that leaves at 8 and 10 am then returns at 6 and 8:20 pm so you can also use that service but we only used it once. The breakfast is great and always hot and fresh and plenty of everything. You can also take the local Lynx buses for $2 a trip to the local mall, which we did one day but it took an hour to get there because of all the stops - not a problem if you're able to take the time but if you are not up for adventure, don't do it. There is a Walgreens, Starbucks, and a great restaurant called the Alehouse right in front of the hotel which was so convenient. we would def stay here again.

The room was modern and clean, the pool and bar were open until 10 pm and the staff was friendly and very accommodating. We called ahead to tell them we were travelers and would arrive earlier then the check in time. The staff made sure we had a room ready and didn't charge an early check-in fee.
I will return to this location and recommend it to others.
