Great stay!
We got there a little early and were unable to check in, but we stopped by the Starbucks at the property and sat by the pool to wait. Once our room was ready, check in was easy. The room was beautiful and clean. We stayed two nights. We did not eat at the property, it was a little pricey in my opinion. The options seemed good though. Great pool view from the room. It was close to what we needed location wise. Would definitely recommend a stay and will be back.

Great Stay, Bad View
Upon Check-in I asked if the room was indeed Theme Park Facing as I paid an extra upgrade fee for that particular view. I was assured at the front desk that the room assigned was one of the best. As I walk in the room I am not only facing the highway but in order to see the theme park, I have to stand on the opposite Corner of the room opposite the bed just to get a glimpse of the park. When speaking to the manager he stated that the assigned room was in the diagram of the Theme park view rooms. I showed him the pictures of the view and offered he go up to the room with me to take a look. He declined as I stated this was false advertising. Instead he offered a discount on the room per night but was not the full amount for the upgrade fee i paid for the "view". Very disappointing. Beside that the Hotel grounds are beautiful and clean. There was an issue with the Parking Entrance and exits and is a very steep $26 per night for Self Parking. Free shuttles to the park were available. I will be staying there again as it is Very accessible to Universal.

Excellent Stay
Our stay was excellent with this trip. The staff were very helpful throughout our time there and the hotel itself was clean and comfortable as always. This was also our fourth stay at this location and we’ll continue to book here in the future.
