Only complaint was needing a heavy blanket for bed, but everything else was excellent. Shuttles to park were a plenty, staff was kind as could be, and pool was awesome. Complete our visit during COVID and we have only good things to say about the safety procedures.

We stayed here for a week vacation at universal and loved it! Clean facility, cafe in site, fun cool pool with good views and great rooms for a great price AND discounted as an annual pass holder The two bedroom suites had. A small kitchen and there was a store on property I didn’t like that if you walked out of the hotel to hit the boulevard the gate door doesn’t work so you have to walk a block either way to get back in Also the buses to the park didn’t adhere to social distancing or seem too clean The pool though! Excellent lifeguards especially Kristina who helped and went above and beyond for me and my family and everyone else to enjoy their time she’s always on her feet talking to everyone the music even plays under the water and there’s sprinklers for baby’s The rooms were great except they aren’t doing housekeeping due to this corona virus ordeal which I’m not sure how I feel about that as I would have brought my own cleaning supplies especially with the virus the park etc Cafe food is yummy and decent priced Definitely coming back Read less

I will start by saying it is brand new and very clean bright and pretty. However the rooms are so small any more than 2 people in a Room you would never be able to walk around. . No Room to put your suitcases let alone a decent dresser or closet. The bathroom is the size of a closet you have slide around the door to get into the shower. There… Read more
I will start by saying it is brand new and very clean bright and pretty. However the rooms are so small any more than 2 people in a Room you would never be able to walk around. . No Room to put your suitcases let alone a decent dresser or closet. The bathroom is the size of a closet you have slide around the door to get into the shower. There is absolutely no amenities in the Room no coffee pot a flimsy plastic glass and a small ice bucket. . I called three times prior to arriving to inquire about a coffee pot and was told each time there was one in every Room. There was none in the Room because there is a Starbucks on site I suppose. Went down to the small cafe that was open coffee wasn't made in the morning the lady felt sorry for me hurried up and made me a quick cup complimentary. Read less

2 adults, 2 children stayed in a suite. Good size but 6 with only one bath would be cramped. Clean and well lit rooms. Pool is big but crowded, bar and game room closed by state order leaving limited things to do at hotel. Fitness center was open but didn't see anyone using it.

2 adults, 2 children stayed in a suite. Good size but 6 with only one bath would be cramped. Clean and well lit rooms. Pool is big but crowded, bar and game room closed by state order leaving limited things to do at hotel. Fitness center was open but didn't see anyone using it. Starbucks, restaurant and common area were nice. Daily temp checks and wristbands to show guests were checked. Too far to walk to parks but shuttle every 10 minutes. Parking garage is not connected and a bit of a PIA. Overall a nice stay at a great price (We're premium passholders). I'd stay again. Read less

Fun hotel for our 2 and 4 year old they love the pool. There’s a place in hotel to get food and drinks and a Starbucks. The rooms are bright, modern and comfortable but we only had a shower no tub for small kids. They take your temperature and give you a wristband and you must wear a mask throughout property except in the pool. Only negative is we had a hard time booking a room. We were staying at another hotel nearby that was awful and asked if we could checkin little early and they transferred us many times on phone and finally they said you have to take a chance and show up early next morning and we may have something. So, we did and got a room right away. Read less
