Free shuttle to universal every day”

We were visiting Universal theme parks so stayed here for 6 nights. Free shuttles available every day to Universal (4 shuttles in the morning from ~8-11am). This is the first stop for shuttles so seats are generally guaranteed. It takes around 30-40minutes to get to Universal after stopping over at 3 other hotels to pick guests. Good hot free breakfast included. Room was comfortable for 2 adults and 3 children. Air conditioning in the room was good. Overall I would recommend this hotel.

Bad experience at cheking ”

I arrive at the hotel with my reservation confirmation ready at the counter. Francis was really bad first impression telling me that my reservation was cancel by agoda and that was not on the system that I need to contact the thir party agency to see was happening. After he let me hanging and waiting I told him that can't be posible that my reservation can't be cancel because I have a confirmation and not refundable reservation and the company used thirt party agency to bring customer. I was already really annoying by the stress he put in I ask to speak with the manager. And wala the reservation magically appeared on his computer . The most disappointed was He dint apologies to me after he try to charge me 200 dollars a night and telling me that my reservation is not valid. So rude and disappointed. Very steafull

Clean & Comfortable Stay ”

Overall a nice stay at this hotel. Check-in and out was alright. Didn't use any facilities as we spent most of the time in Universal Studios. Initially booked this hotel for the close location and free shuttle bus to Universal, but we ended up not using it and took Lyft instead (about $6-8 per ride). I believe the hotel is newly refurbished, hence the room is clean, bright and comfortable. Breakfast selection is surprisingly nice with good selection of eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, fruits and oat porridge. However, I'm really NOT IMPRESSED with all the styrofoam plates and plastics utensils used! Eeks! It's so not environment friendly and I really wish they can change this.
