Honestly spend the extra $ if you're trying to stay 'local or close' to Universal Studios and stay at a different hotel. Overall my stay was decent- decent only because the bed was comfy, room was clean, staff 1/2 helpful (1/2 meaning they will try but don't expect the extra effort on all staff only a handful). The only highlight of staying at this […] place is that IHOP is right next door (and open 24/7). FYI Universal is about a $15+ dollar taxi ride from this place and takes only 10-12 mins by taxi BUT if you walk (and I mean walk 10-15 mins) to catch the 150 bus which will take you to Universal it's about a 45+ min commute; worth doing if it's 1-2 ppl heading to Univ Studios if you're going as a family of 3+ just she'll out the $15+ (bus fare is $2.50 or $3.00) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Days Inn Orlando Universal Studios North I am pleased to hear that you stay was decent, Jay, but disappointed to hear that not all of our staff made you feel welcome. We know that making our customers feel special is the most important part of our jobs, and i'm sorry that we fell short this stay.
"This hotel is located next to a prison: avoid it!"
Consider this vary basic place to stay only. It is located directly next to a large state prison with barbed razor wire & the side parking lot of the hotel is used as a truck stop. When we were there, people were walking around drinking in public & lighting off fire works all night long, & the staff of the hotel did nothing about it, after repeated […] requests. This place is scary, avoid it at all costs. Hotels.com recommend this hotel to us, even after we later saw other reviews stating the same problems, repeatedly.

"not what you would expect..."
Normally I laugh at reviews of people complaining about hotels because I go there to sleep only....so I don't care whether they have certain services or what the rooms are decorated with. The staff was friendly and overall I didn't have any real issues but the location was definitely not ideal. We didn't feel very safe....there happens to be a jail […] right next door to this hotel! And the people staying at the hotel were loud and some were very creepy. Being in the ghetto is not what I expected....I wouldn't recommend this place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not as bad as I expected"
The hotel is located in an unbelievably convenient location to downtown Orlando, and less than 2 miles from the hospital (cancer center) I had to visit. Most of what you will read on the other reviews is pretty accurate though regarding the area ... But, they didn't mention that this hotel has awesome security. I met the security man and I can imagine […] that even really bad people would seriously hesitate to mess with him, lol. He is apparently, and obviously someone no one would want to mess with. Yet, he is such a nice and sincere person to the visitors at this motel, and quite obviously there to protect you. The owner was really nice and the girls at the front desk were very polite. IHop was right next door. Their breakfast wasn't bad ... just a continental breakfast. Yes, the hotel is obviously old, but the beds were ultra comfortable and clean, as were the bath and sink area. Furniture was old, carpet was old ... bed was very clean and fresh and there were NO bugs, lol (which is my biggest fear at a motel). Unless you are just going to go there and go walking around the parking lot or the area it is in, you will be safe. And, insofar as 'filth' goes ... there was no filth in the room. It was somewhat like staying at a grandmother's house who'd keep her beds and bath cleaner than anything else, lol ... yet things would be kind of old. Nice flat screen TV with good channels. Really was not bad. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

It was dirty, unorganized at check in, and very shady neighborhood and people. The next room from us had 4 adults and 4-5 screaming and crying kids. Mind you their room had 2 beds!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Worst Hotel I have been in Orlando"
The room have a terrible odor, such as urine. The elevator, and the corridor or hallway, were very dirty and they had a sticky thing on the floor. The room did not have towels, and I had to call 3 or 4 times to reception personnel to bring me the towels. The second day on the room, personnel did not replace the used towels, and I called more than 4 […] times to replace them, and nobody never came to replace them. It is the worst hotel in Orlando I have been before. Terrible! I never recommended this hotel!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Do not stay here!"
Its not near the park. No shuttle service. They allow people to live in there motel. Prostitutes and homeless live there. Motel is right next to the county jail. Bad neighborhood.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Worst Hotel I have been in Orlando"
Worst Hotel I have been in Orlando, and I have stayed as tourist more than 6 times in Orlando. I have never seen a worst hotel than this. The rooms are dirty, with a terrible odor (like a urine). The elevators and all corridor are dirty with something sticky on the floor. Garbages are full and some trash are outside besides the garbage basket. Personnel […] does not put towels on your room, and when I asked for towels to the recepcion personnel, I had to call 3 or 4 times for personnel could bring me towels. At the 2nd day, personnel did not replace the towels, and I called 3 times to reception personnel to replace them, without success. I had to reuse towels again. And reception personnel asnwers you in a improper manner. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Sub par at best"
Weird hair all over one of the beds. Room smelled strange. Furniture was broken. Couldn't sleep well and didn't feel right and not worth the price or second star.Genuine Expedia guest review
There were 4 people in the room. But only 3 towels available. When an extra towel was requested after calling the lobby twice,they said they had no more until the next morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Sorry to say but it was not a good experience. We were there 2 nights and both nights there were people yelling and screaming in the middle of the night from a room. People hanging around smoking on the railings and talking loud at all hours of the night. People running up and down the walk ways yelling at each other. Doors being slammed. Mostly between […] the hours of 2am - 5 am A large loud group of people hanging out in the IHop back parking lot at 3 in the morning yelling at each other. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is nowhere near Universal but is situated right next to the Federal prison so apparently this is the hotel of choice for inmate's relatives!! We arrived at 8 pm and there were already drunk men staggering out of the very loud bar attached to the hotel lobby!! The area did not look safe needless to say. Terrible hotel...don't go near it unless […] you have relatives in the jail!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"MANAGEMENT SHOULD READ THIS!!!!!!"
I checked in during late night as it was a last minute thing, At check in Front desk clerk was nice (ok), she seemed frustrated with something, However Check-in process was smooth. We stayed at 416, first of all, the premises overall are terrible, i believe people live in this hotel. trash cans by the elevator in very bad shape. As we walked in to the […] room, the standing lamp was missing the knob we could not turned it on, the bed presentation were terrible, one of the beds had hair, in it. Luckly, the other bed was ok. the Shower was in bad condition, as well as hair was found. the sink counters had still soap residue I believe from last people that stay there. and last but not least, There was a trash bag from Wendy's on the trash can. i did not check out due to the time I arrive to the unit. It was the worse hotel i ever stayed in my life. I did not call to complaint as people just take this as a compensation reason, and not what i looked towards to. when i was falling asleep, There was a lady screaming and yelling, I called down the front desk to have them send some one over to calm the lady down. Not sure if Management are even worry of the condition of this property so why would i waste my time. If you have kids and a family with Values do not stay here! I rate terrible, but terrible is too much for this property! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Just what I expect"
You get what you pay for. The room was not modern but was okay to sleep in. The continental breakfast wasn't much to it. It wasn't worth the time to wake up to. The bar service was good but they did not know or had the equipment to make a good drink.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel exterior is misleading to what you will encounter on the interior. Room had a musty smell and the bed spreads had holes in them. It's obvious that the hotel is serving as permanent residence for families. There were people loitering around all night presenting a unsafe environment. The ice machines were inoperable on each floor...I expected more […] for paying 60 bucks!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Terrible area close the hotel"
Dirt in the room and public areas. The hotel charge a fee that does not mention when the booking is made with Expedia. Behind the hotel there is a bar and there is noise all night and listening to drunk people. It is the worst hotel where I've been.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overlooks a jail"
Unless you are visiting an inmate, I'm pretty sure you don't want to stay right next door to a Florida Correctional Facility. It's seriously right next door. Not cool. And I've stayed at way nicer hotels (for much less the price!) in Orlando. This is a cheap stay but not cheap enough for "surrounding neighborhood" and "condition of hotel." DO NOT STAY […] HERE unless you need to visit someone in jail... Then it might actually be quite convenient. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Upon arrival, noticed damage to walls within room. Carpet within room was newly installed and staples were all over the floor from the installation. First night stay, had to call Manager in order to complain about what sounded like a domestic dispute coming from a nearby adjacent room and balcony outside my room. Manager call local police. However, […] remaining nights were more quite. Hotel had easy access to nearby interstates and other major roads. Only about 20 minutes to main Attractions. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Needs major upkeep and renovation. Carpet was ripped, torn, and missing in spots. Didn't know it was next door to the county prison, or that our door would face the parking lot for 18 wheelers, whose refrigeration systems would have to run all night. Stairwells and passageways were unlit, dirty, and smelly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"THE WORST AND DIRT HOTEL EVER"
First of all the rooms available for Hotels.com are the worst in the whole hotel, so when you check in they start offering better ones for an additional price. My reservation was for a smoking room (the only available) and at the check in I asked for a non smoking room and they said tha t the only available rooms will cost me an additional $15.00/day. […] Seems to be a bait. I get the one I made reservation for. The room was small and stinky and dirt (mainly the carpet). I asked to changed the room and again they said that I have to pay extra because the hotel was all booked. After 4 days I noticed that the hotel was not booked because I saw in my floor all non smoking rooms empty. Another thing, the hotel is right beside a State penitenciary. DON'T stay there. Hotels.com should not offer to us rooms and services from this hotel anymore. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The location was good. The rooms are clean. The service is also very good. We would just like to add one comment - the hotel can add a couple more bread toasters as it got really crowded during breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was very dirty including rooms and property. Furniture in rooms was broken, coffee pot did not work and remote was broken. Counter tops and tables in room were sticky. Will never stay at this chain again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for visiting inmates!!!"
If you enjoy being right next to the Orange County Jail, then this is the place for you. It is very misleading to include Universal Studios in this hotel's name. I think instead it should be named Days Inn Orange County Jail North. This hotel caters to people who are visiting inmates or those who will one day become inmates. My stepchildren (who are […] adults) had two guys bang on their door in the middle of the night. We're not sure why because they were afraid to answer the door. This is definitely not a family vacation spot. The rooms were not very clean and there was hair in the tub and stuck on the bathroom floor. Thank God we were only there for the night! We will not being going back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Economical...that is all"
On my 2 days Universal Halloween Horror night trip I stayed in this hotel. The only good feature about the hotel is that it was very cheap. Other than that there were nothing special. The carpet was damp, the AC wouldn't work properly. There was hair all over the provided towel like it wasn't washed properly. Like my i said the only feature was the […] cheap room rate.

We got a good deal on our stay, but the room wasn't even close to good. It smelled like smoke, stuff was falling off the walls, the internet wasn't consistent at all, and the tv was about 20 years old and nothing came in on it. I would not ever go back... ever.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
