Located close to everything and not expensive, easy transportation access to the Universal parks. Very nice place to stay, Have stayed there twice even during covid. Spent a lot time at Sand Bar while everyone is napping.

No problem. To pick up the food you have to go inside to the cafe/restaurant to get your order. I walked in at the time noted on the email and the staff asked if he could help me. I tell him I’m there to pick up my mobile order. He looks at the printer, grabs my ticket and tells me it will be 10 minutes. There are pizzas sitting in the window ready to go, but those are different apparently? So the mobile ordering has some kinks to work out. Next time I’d just walk into the cafe and grab what I wanted instead of relying on technology to try to streamline the process. Shuttles to the parks were frequent and efficient as well. Read less

Great hotel if you are going to the theme parks. I was worried of the quality because of how cheap it is compared to the others, but it is really nice and the staff are great! You can here guests in other rooms but it didn’t bother us because we spent most of our time outside of the room. The pool is really nice and was always clean as well!

Having stayed at a few other on site properties (Cabana Bay, Aventura and Sapphire Falls) we were excited to try the latest addition to the Lowes hotels! Surfside Inn and Suites by Universals Endless summer was just as nice as all other on site hotels- at a fraction of the cost! Don't let the term "value resort" scare you! The room quality was just as nice as other on site hotels. As far as value goes- all food items were under $12 (and they were still delicious!). I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to enjoy the benefit of on site transportation and early park entry while not trying to break the bank! Can't wait to come back next year and try Dockside Inn and Suites! Read less
