We had bought tickets to both Universal and Islands of Adventure & seen that this hotel was very close. It has lots of restaurants close by along with little shops. Our room was very clean just like the other Holiday Inn Expresses we've previously stayed at and it was literally five minutes from the park! Highly reccommend!

"The Hotel was ok near Universale Studio"
The Hotel room was too small in term of Suite, no privacy at all. And Bathroom with standing shower was cramped-in. Parking lot was packed with Cars so we need to park near-by Wendy's Parking Lot. Morning breakfast was bumpy and food was just ok.

"OK HOTEL"
it was an ok hotel, honestly for the price you are paying you cannot expect more. They were out of power our first night, no AC, elevators, lights, water, at all.... then we only got our room cleaned once and we stayed 3 nights. We were told by the staff you can only get it cleaned once per stay... REALLY?? They have a free shuttle to few theme parks which was a PLUS. Also is a very good location, anything you can think of is near by.

The hotel is decent, the pool area is clean, the breakfast is great, better than your average hotel free breakfast. our a/c unit worked but when we arrived the cover was on the floor, no big deal. I booked at Hotels.com and paid through them but after i checked out, there was a $16 charge on my card from the hotel, i called and they said it was supposed to be charged to hotels.com, not me.. they credited it back to me and apologized. overall its a good inexpensive hotel if you are going to universal studios.

"Perfect for families visiting Universal"
Read several mixed reviews prior to booking. My thoughts: 1) Location-close enough to Universal but not walking distance with children in the summer heat. We could have stayed in a closer and more expensive hotel but I still don't think you would choose to walk. 2) Shuttle bus-got up at 7am each morning to get passes. Had to choose a leaving time, but were able to come back on any of the return buses. Ok, the last bus is 8.10pm whilst park closes at 10pm, so we stayed late one night and paid the $17 parking fee. For a free shuttle bus I have no complaints at all. 3) Breakfast-included in hotel rate so for 5 mouths to feed it was fantastic value. Loads of choice including pancakes, porridge, muffins, bagels, gorgeous cinnabons, toast, cereal and fruit. The eggs and sausages were of mass catering standard and the plates and cutlery were plastic but we filled up and weren't hungry until the afternoon. We looked forward to breakfast! 4) Room-2 doubles and a sofa bed. Perfect for us. A large room with microwave and fridge. Lovely spaceous shower. Flat screen TV with loads of channels. Overall, for the rate we paid per night inc breakfast, parking and WIFI we had no complaints and would recommend it for a Universal holiday, particularly for families.

They advertise that they have a business center. The printer did not work, and 24 hours after I let them know, it still did not work. Their answer was that they tried calling tech support but no one called them back. They also have this "business center" right next to a guy loudly hawking Universal tickets.

"Good if you are and about all day"
Really good price, breakfast was really good with sausage and eggs and pancakes. It is not too close to universal and the shuttle system to universal is useless since you have to schedule it too much time ahead and the way back is at 8pm when the park closes at 10. We ended up using taxi all the time. Warning they use taxis that are more expensive than other taxis, if you are going to the airport call one yourself because the ones they use are $15 more. Very clean and basic hotel if you are never in your room or at the pool. Imposible to relax at the pool since is really small and full of kids. Overall i would stay here again if i dont want to spend a lot of money since it was clean and we saved on breakfast.

"Great find!"
We found this place by accident, late at night after abandoning our room at a nearby, yucky hotel. As soon as we walked in, Lucas w was very friendly and checked us in quickly. We were happy that the room was modern & spotless, and it was a nice plus that a continental breakfast was included. However, the next morning we were blown away by the lovely breakfast choices! It was practically an entire breakfast buffet with eggs, sausage, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, cereal, bagels, etc. The staff was friendly & constantly kept the tables clean & the food refreshed so it was easy for a lot of people to get in and out without feeling crowded. This is one of the closest hotels to Universal, but without the extra fees! No resort charge, free parking, free shuttle to Universal (& some other parks, I think) & free breakfast. Well be back!

Very nice staff. Small, clean room. Excellent free breakfast and very friendly breakfast staff. Nice, simple pool. Allowed early check in and late check out with free membership. Only complaint was shuttle return service ended 2 hours before US park closed so had to pay to park ($17) or take a return taxi (which was $6-8 not including tip.)

I reserved a smoking room, but ended up staying in a non-smoking room. Apparently, the room I ended up in was double-blind because as I was walking out, another couple was trying to come in. Also, there was a lot of commotion in the middle of the night. I could hear everything going on next door. Overall, the accommodations were adequate.

"Good stay for the price"
I thought I had booked the Holiday Inn directly across from the Universal entrance, but once arriving realized I booked the Holiday Inn Express a short distance away. Still close in proximity though. While the rooms weren't quite as nice as the regular Holiday Inn, this place was more affordable and the rooms were smaller, but definitely adequate for the price. The free breakfast was great and had a ton of options including eggs, sausage, pancakes/waffles, as well as all the traditional continental breakfast items. Didn't use the pool, but it looked clean and well maintained.

My family has always had good experiences with Holiday Inn Express and this was no exception. Our room and the entire property was very clean.
