We chose this hotel as it is "across the street" from Universal Studios. But is actually a good walk to the entrance. They state they have a shuttle but don't tell you to call for a reservation BEFORE you check-in. The woman at the front desk looked at me like I was foolish for not knowing that information. We live...

Stayed for 10 nights as part of twin centre holiday with Thomson. The location of the hotel is on the main Kirkman road which is similar to busy dual carriage way in the UK but seems normal for Orlando as there are lots of others like this throughout Orlando. You don't really notice the road noise, even at the pool...

Stayed from the 2nd- 16th July with my husband and son. We had 2 double beds that were comfy and we were on a non smoking floor. I liked that I didn't have to bring an iron or hairdryer with me plus there is a fridge in the room aswell as a coffee maker. The only thing I didn't like...

Do not stay here. The lobby may seem fine, but the hallways and rooms are dimly lit, empty and creepy. My lamps did not work and the bathroom lights were dark and also dim. The carpets are not clean, and the manager was not accommodating whatsoever! Do not stay with them!
