    Very good 8,0 From 831 reviews

    Exceptional 10,0
    It was a good stay. the room was clean but somewhat small. Not much space between bed and dresser cause us to bump our legs on the bed several times. Also, after the first night, we were only given one clean wash cloth per day, even after we requested two. We were told that only one new wash cloth was allotted for that room. Couldn't understand this when there were two of us in the room.

    Single mother traveling with 9yr old great service
    My overall experience was great! The staff were very friendly. I’m a single mother who was traveling with my 9 year old, so I may have been a bit needy with my accommodations. On the night of our arrival, I was assigned a room in the far back corner of the hotel on the first floor. I didn’t feel safe as the entrance to the rooms are on the exterior of the building. The front desk then moved me to the second floor. Another dark area/dead spot...the next day, I spoke to the manager who assured me that I can get a room in a more open area near the pool or garden. So, after my third move, I was okay. :) I think the hotel needs some small improvements...for example, during my 7 night stay, we only had hot water 1 night. I called maintenance and they told me it was due to the amount of guests using the water. Not a huge deal since we were dealing with the summer heat; nonetheless, I still enjoy a hot shower. The refrigerators didn’t seem to get very cold. In fact, there was a lot of heat coming from it and the top was iced over. There are no elevators! Carrying luggage and bags to the 2nd floor can be a bit challenging for one person. Luckily, there are only two floors. :) Lastly, the room we were given for the remainder of our stay, the faucet on shower was just about broken. So, we had to be very gentle when turning on the water. To reiterate on the great service I received.. on our final day, we missed the last shuttle to Universal, and the owner/manager gave us a ride! Thx!

    Great night stay!
    Everything was exactly as I expected it to be. Inside of rooms have been completely remodeled and very nice. I accidentally left my medicine behind and wasn’t able to come back and get it for a week and it was kept for me in the safe!

    Fair 4,0
    HORRIBLE beds!!!
    Overall, was a pretty nice hotel. Is within walking distance from Universal and a bunch of nearly restaurants. I was pretty upset with the fact they didn't provide any complimentary breakfast. My BIGGEST issue with this hotel was the fact that the beds were UNBELIEVABLY HARD. If you LOVE a crazy hard bed, then I guess this hotel is for you, but anything other then wanting to sleep on the hard concrete, the beds were horrible. My body was actually in a pretty good amount of pain by the time I woke up in the morning. I would never stay here again until they get new beds...

    Everything was ok with the and the staff, but the last night someone decided to key my car for no reason. That ruined the hole trip, the staff said they couldn't review the tape not good.
