Philipe V. Families with young children Brazil, November 5, 2014
Best hotel for Universal Park

location, food, transportatio
I really recomend this hotel, is really near to universal studios, you can go walkink (15min) or take the free shutle buss from the hotel. They also have shuthe bus to disney and you can take the local bus if you want to go to outlets. Besides the TGY frydays in the mais floor that i loved. I will really going back there.
Yan H. Business travelers China, July 17, 2014
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.
Erman H. Families with older children Indonesia, September 14, 2013
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.
Kitipong T. Families with older children Thailand, May 23, 2013

Richard B. Couples United Kingdom, April 11, 2011
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...
Stephanus N. Couples South Africa, February 3, 2011
Holiday Inn And Suites Universal Hotel

Enjoyed the stay, close to Universal. Breakfast at TGIF disappointing. All else was fine.
Travel tip: Instead of having breakfast at TGIF, pop around to Crocker Barel across the road.
Warren B. Families with older children Australia, January 8, 2011
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.
Travel tip: We paid for a Disney Hopper pass to go to different parks each day. We found with lines and fast-passes it was difficult to fit a full park into one day, let alone 2. We found Animal Kingdom a great addition. Ask the hotel traveldesk for a planet hollywood pass (in downtown disney) which will give you a free appetizer but also more importantly you will jump the queue (which can be horrendous). For a cheap buffet try the Golden Corral for a basic all you can eat. If you can add Miami into your trip there's so much to do down thereincluding the everglades and zoo/aquarium.
Malin A. Couples Sweden, July 29, 2010
Holiday Inn And Suites Universal Hotel

We had a pleasant stay. Without having any expectations so we were very surprised positively. We spent a few days in Orlando on holiday in order to visit Universal Studios and Adventure Island os. This was perfect because when it is just a stone's throw away from two parks. It takes about 10 minutes to walk the streets away and it worked great for us. Large airy rooms with big comfortable beds. If you consider the price it was really good. The hotel also has a nice new pool and a restaurant "TGI Fridays" at the bottom. A very pleasant stay that I can really recommend. / Malin
