    Great location
    The hotel is pretty nice, the beds are kinda small but comfortable. It is in a perfect location if you are going to Universal Studios.

    Very slow check-in and mold
    I arrived at 16:00, which is usually 1 hour after checkin. I had to wait until 18:00 for the room to be ready. Waste 2 hours of my time for nothing... I stayed on the 3rd floor where the air was ver damp and you could smell mold. The room was ok, the bathroom was really humid and had mold around the bathtub. The air was unbreathable without the Air conditioning on at 69F. I would never stay in such a hotel and would definitely never recommend it to anyone. I told the front desk about these issues and all they did was apologize :( Anyways, if this is what gold status gets you, it felt like a very un-premium experience.

    great location
    Perfect location. Directly off the turnpike and right across the street from Islands and Universal. Down side is terrible coffee in the morning in the hotel, and pretty mediocre food next door at Friday's. Very friendly, helpful staff. Would definetly stay there again when visiting these 2 parks.

    Good6.0
    Good hotel, horrible ineffective partners
    Hotel is nice and has the basic requirements, being so close to Universal you can easily walk. Their partners, on the other hand, both TGIF restaurant and the bus to/from Universal provide THE worst services ever. Beeakfast at TGIF (included): there's never enough clean plates so you will have to wait, coffee is bad and theres no capuccinos even if you wanted to pay for them, and in the middle of it one of the cooks will come out of the kitchen to apply lipstick on the mirror at the breakfast area... at some point you just have to laugh at how bad the service is... Tried to have lunch (paying for it) and ended up leaving, as our waitress simply disappeared, leaving our drinks at the bar. I went and explained to other waitress that our drinks had been there for 10 minutes (at my hands reach at this point) and she didn't let me grab them. We just left and went for lunch at Universal city walk. The bus to Universal works in the morning. The 9pm bus back doesn't have enough space for everyone and it's the most tedious, ineffective process I have ever seen. It takes about 30 minutes just to get on the bus. Then add another 30 to get back to the hotel thanks to traffic: better walk back to the hotel, even though the side walk is not well illuminated.
