Great deal for the money”

This hotel was a really a great deal for the money. The location, across the street from Universal Studios, saves time standing in line at the theme park, and if you utilize the hotels "free" shuttle, you will also save $11 in parking fees for the day, every littlte bit helps. There are a variety of restaurants and shopping. Within a couple miles of the hotel, there is something for everyone. The rooms were clean and fresh asnd the beds were very comfortable. They also have a complimentary continental breakfast in the lobby. Overall I think this hotel is a great value for anyone, business or family, who is visitig either Universal Studios or the Convention Center, and would rather save a few bucks, than spend than night sleeping in a superior hotel.

Good value”

Cheap price, location, free parking, WiFi, Breakfast, close to some attractions
WiFi signal weak in the room

This is good hotel for the money you pay. Rooms were clean and had everything necessary. Pool outside was also clean. Big factory outlets and Universal Studios are accross the street. Breakfast was good and sufficient, although did not include juice. WiFi signal were little bit poor in the room, but can be used anyway. Would go back again if in Orlando.

Great location for Universal parks”

Walking distance to Universal
Breakfast was pretty lame

This motel is very near to Universal. About a 25 minute walk to the theme park entrances. There is an enormous parking ramp for Universal, but you could easily have a 15 minute walk from the parking ramp to the theme park. I was told the parking ramp costs $14. They have valet parking for $25, which is closer than the parking ramps. I was also told a taxi from the motel was about $7 (however, that would only get you to Universal Citywalk, which you have to walk through to get to the theme parks). We chose to walk. There is also a shuttle from the hotel to many attractions. To Universal it leaves the hotel at 10:30 and returns at 7:30. Not good if you want to get there when it opens (at 9:00). I'm not sure what the shuttle times are for Disney or Sea World. The motel was pretty full, even during off season. Don't even think about trying to check in early. For breakfast, a guy behind a counter gives you either a bowl of cereal (no choice of type) and a banana or a couple pieces of bread to toast. You get a small (maybe 3 ounces) glass of orange "juice" and, though I didn't have any, I think coffee.

The pool had towels available, lots of lounge seating with nice large umbrellas for shade in the hot Florida sun. The beds were comfortable and the linens and towels clean.

Public transport system (I-Ride) is by the hotel side with good frequency.

Family friendly hotel having cooperative staff. Happily changed the room which had a clogged bath tub water outlet.Working table was good.Indian restaurant by its side is an added advantage.The hotel rooms are OK but the room maintenance is not up to the mark. Facilities for drinking water, coffee maker and internet in the room are lacking. Closed vicinity of Universal Studios and International Drive outlets are good sources for judicious time utilization.

I like this hotel for its location. I walk to universal in the morning, to save on parking. They also offer van service to the both parks,Universal and Disney. Also there is TGI Fridays, Golden Coral, Hooters and Waffle House near by. They have free Wi Fi Internet but it does have a weak signal in most rooms.

Great Location & Staff, Lacking in Everywhere Else”

The location to universal, the staff, the tile floor in room

The description leads one to believe that renovations are almost over as the end date is scheduled for January 2015. However, when one pulls into the hotel it is clear that renovations are seriously behind. The night check in could be more well lit, and several lights do need attention outside of the property. While the room was clean, the sink vanity is only held up by a piece of plywood and was installed at a very sharp angle and well as the sink sinking in. The main part of the room was nice with the tile floor (very clean), but the ceiling were dusty, chipping, and the bathroom tile was dirty looking with half the fixtures falling off the wall. Also, while I am short person (5'5), I even found the shower head location to be too low for me. Finally, the wall outlets are falling out of the wall and really do require some immediate attention. The two good things about this hotel are the staff (especially Rosie) and the location to Universal, but I am not sure if I would consider staying at this hotel again in the future.

Great Value, Convenient to visit the theme parks!

The hotel was cheap and good! It is walking distance to Universal and there's a shuttle bus to Disneyland. The good thing is that it is the first stop of the bus to Disney and thus there will definitely be seats and at the same time its the first to alight when coming back! This means getting back to hotel faster after a long tiring day at the theme park! The stay was cheap and good!

good location is the only good thing

the room is very dirity, extremely dirty. The bathroom smells. However, the location is perfect. It is only 15-20 minutes walk to Universal Studio. It is very near Premium Outlet. Do not expect anything for the breakfast. It is merely cereal and banana. Bring the salad for yourself. Do not buy the Universal Ticket with the hotel. The ticket guy knows nothing. The shuttles to Universal and Disney are provided but only one round a day. Not recommend for staying there to go to Disney.

The ideal location to attractions and convention centre

My stay @ Days Inn MCO was a good one. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Room amenities were adequate but can be improved. There were however no coffee machine in room. The carpet feels damp. The shower knobs didn't seem to work although water is heated and able to control the temperature. Breakfast was 2slices toast, cereal, a hard boil egg, juice n choice of coffee or tea. Internet only available in lobby n restaurant. Nothing in room which is a minus. Overall, stay was fine. Nothing to really complain about considering the price and location. A big plus if you are staying for holiday.
