So so
Hotel was nice ,but beds not queen size at least not ours , and the sofa sleeper is not comfortable to sit on let alone sleep on , aside from that not bad ,but for what we paid not worth it

Great and close to universal!
Great hotel with a great price! It was quiet but I could tell the walls were thin so depends on your neighbors. Beds were a bit hard but pillows were great. 15 min walk to universal or use the free shuttle. Lots of food nearby. Get a junior columbian “mix” burger! Overall great, would stay again.

Friendly Fire
Staff and accommodations were great, but our neighbors smoked so much they smoked us out in the middle of the night. Security handled the situation though so it was short-lived.

Feel deceived by good reviews...
The lobby area was updated and very nice. The rooms left much to be desired though. We had a suite and while it was "updated," the updates appeared to be a bandaid over a bullet hole. My chief complaints are how musty the room was and the lack of room darkening curtains. The room was so musty that we all woke up with really bad sore throats and sinus issues. We were on the lower level and the window had one sheer curtain so we could easily see out so the people walking past could certainly see in. It made us all feel unsafe. Honestly, I feel deceived by all of the good reviews I saw when booking.
