This was a last minute stay after our cruise was canceled. We spent two nights in a 2 bedroom family room/suite (we are a family of 5 with three teens). It was much as expected for the price point.

This was a last minute stay after our cruise was canceled. We spent two nights in a 2 bedroom family room/suite (we are a family of 5 with three teens). It was much as expected for the price point. The hotel was new and clean and the decor was pleasant. The kids thought the room was super cool and there was just enough room for us for a few day stay. The pool area was nice and we enjoyed swimming and getting drinks at the bar. There are no water slides or activities at the pool but the kids enjoyed that they could hear the music playing when they were under the water swimming. Check in and out was super fast and easy and the cafeteria style restaurant worked out fine for our breakfast needs. The room had a small kitchenette that we did make use of and we enjoyed the picnic style table. We used the shuttle to get to and from City Walk witch was easy and we never had to weight. If I could change a few things they would be that the towels were small, cheap, scratchy and already falling apart and the two bed room family suite could really us e a second bathroom one is really not sufficient or practical fro a two bedroom unit. I have stayed at most of the Universal hotels and when booking this one keep in mind that this is more on the budget friendly side of their range and that's what you should expect when staying here.

We checked in and were given the key and went to the park. We were texted when our room was ready. The walk to the room was extremely long. It was a decent size room with 2 queens in one room and a queen in the bedroom. The beds were comfortable and we slept well. There was a small frig and microwave.

We realize that this corona crisis is affecting everyone , and every business , however what the Endless summer resort did to us today was just wrong . We were booked and paid for a room at the Endless Summer Dockside inn , which was to open for business today . We stayed the last 4 nights at the Endless Summer Surfside resort, their “sister “ hotel right across the street . The Dockside Delayed their opening due to the coronavirus situation , which was understandable . However, the Surfside refused to transfer our reservation . They would give us rooms if we paid another $414 but would not honor our reservation . We were afraid to Spend the extra money due to the situation of uncertainty as far as employment and finances. The hotel was a ghost town , so I’m sure there weren’t many people staying in this huge hotel , but they could not honor our reservation. Please take note before patronizing a hotel that could not even amend their policies in the face of a horrible situation , a world wide pandemic and it didn’t matter that my family including my 7 year old grandson Did not have a place to stay . We had just paid for 2 rooms for 4 nights at their hotel ! One would think that in the the middle of a panic stricken national pandemic , this resort would care enough to understand and help us. We weren’t asking for free rooms ... we just wanted the rooms we already paid for ... which THEY CANCELLED ...NOT US....to be transferred . The resort was Beautiful and they did upgrade our rooms because there was hardly any one there. For that we are grateful . But amidst the horrible situation the Endless summer resort did not act with compassion and heart, their actions were cold and disconcerting . We will not be going there and advise others to stay away. Read less
