We had some complications with a reservation through a third party and didn’t actually end up getting to stay here — Huge bummer! Nevertheless, we ended up jumping through hoops to get it refunded and got amazing service at the front desk from Victoria. We were such a pain without meaning to be but she was extremely helpful, patient and courteous.… Read more

Nevertheless, we ended up jumping through hoops to get it refunded and got amazing service at the front desk from Victoria. We were such a pain without meaning to be but she was extremely helpful, patient and courteous. I can’t wait to come back here so we can book the trip differently and get to stay in this awesome and beautiful resort. Starbucks is in the main lobby too, so that was enough to sell me anyway!

As I write this I'm lying here at 1am trying to get some sleep, it's night 2 of my 7 night stay and I've lost count of how many times I've complained about the noise from the room above. Last night I finally got some sleep around 3am once the noise died down. They have promised to move me rooms tomorrow, but after 2 nights of being kept awake and even with them returning the charge for the first 2 nights of my stay I can safely say I can't see anyway I would ever stay in a universal resort ever again.I have visited Orlando 6 times on vacation in the last 10 years and I've never had to complain, not once but then I never stayed at a universal hotel and that will be at the front of my mind when I come back to Orlando again.

We stayed 10 nights so had different ‘neighbours’ during our stay including school kids who had parties till 1am in their room and other kids allowed to run up and down the corridor! You can hear conversations in the next room, showers going on, tv etc. Such a shame as a lovely hotel otherwise. Read less

We stayed in the Surfside Inn for 3 weeks . The hotel is spotless and the staff all friendly. The rooms were spacious but could do with a another set of drawers but wasn’t a big deal . Showers were always roasting no matter the time of day. You can hear some noise in the room but I’d say this is down to the other guests having no respect for… Read more
We stayed in the Surfside Inn for 3 weeks . The hotel is spotless and the staff all friendly. The rooms were spacious but could do with a another set of drawers but wasn’t a big deal . Showers were always roasting no matter the time of day. You can hear some noise in the room but I’d say this is down to the other guests having no respect for others, I mean do you really need to thump across the floor and slam everything shut !!! We didn’t eat much in the hotel but we did have the breakfast bowl a few times and pizza one night and it was all tasty. People complaining about access out to I-Drive ?? It’s a 2 min walk through the garage and brings out at the I trolley stops , very handy. If there is one complaint it has to be the 14 bucks a night for parking . We’ve been to Florida over 30 times and this was the first time we went without a car . We used Uber and the i trolleys instead . And to be honest it worked out a treat and had no stress driving a car . Plenty buses to take you to the parks and of course if you are feeling fit it’s an easy walk to universal .Would highly recommend this hotel and have booked up for the sister hotel across the road , the dockside inn . See you all in December 😎. Read less

The water in the shower is always cold so don’t expect a hot shower like ever. The food at the food court is absolutely disgusting. Will stay at different place for next vacation. So unless you want cold showers and not able to get good food at the place you stay, go somewhere else.
