Good location for business traveler

surrounded by resturants and convenince stores.
Hotel location not bad, restaurants and convenience stores within walking distance. Stayed at this hotel on business, therefore important criteria is free wi-fi in room with free breakfast. Large room, soft bed and a ample supply of grind coffee. Like the in room microwave cooker. As a smoker, the ability to book a room that allows smoking in the room is a plus. For those on holiday, Its appears that his hotel is Universal Studio partner hotel, notice 2 booking counters in the lobby catering to tours for Universal studio and other theme site. Breakfast spread – there is nothing to crow about. Simple breakfast spread. Quick check in and out.

Family friendly, good location, mediocre

The room was quite spacious and it was a 10 minute walk to Universal studios, they had complimentary breakfast in TGIFridays and they had a shuttle service.

Good hotel for visiting Universal Studio

Reasonable price, close to Universal Studio, comfortable room
The price is including free ride to Universal Orlando. The air condition unit was a little bit too loud. Public taxi are very rare. Need to call if required. The hotel has car that can be hired as taxi. It cost about twice the taxi, but the driver are friendly and sent us directly to the target place. It is a low cost hotel, where there no bell boy to help, but it has all the equipment to carry all your lugage by yourself. It has small shop, car rental agent, ticket for Universal studio. The business center is expensive. 0.25 USD for 1 minute internet and 0.75 USD for every page of printing. The bed are clean and comfortable.

Handy for Universal Studios

Walking distance from Universal Studios
Don't expect Holiday Inn UK standards here. It is more a motel than a hotel, and shabby at that. TGIF as the sole source of food might be Ok for some but it really needs a proper restaurant (and a better breakfast menu). It is easy to find, parking is fine and a good spot if you want to be in easy reach of Universal Studios and are not picky about the hotel...

Holiday Inn And Suites Universal Hotel

Enjoyed the stay, close to Universal. Breakfast at TGIF disappointing. All else was fine.

Nice Hotel, clean, good staff

Room spacious,
this is a good hotel, room was spacious and clean. staff were attentive and helpful.the internet service offered was slow and we were unable to skpe at anytime during our stay. we believed it was much closer to orlando disneyworld and took more than 20 mins to drive there. shuttles offered were from other hotels and costly. it is though not far from universal and there are good outlet shopping nearby. the hotel has a tgi restauarnt attached which offered good reasonably priced food and a breakfast buffet. we ended up hiring a car and found the independence great. remember the gps though as the roads curl and twist and it's hard to get your bearings.
