Good hotel for a short trip to Universal Orlando

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by a traveler from on November 25, 2011

We stayed here five nights while on a four day trip visiting Universal Orlando. It was only a walk across a couple of streets to the park itself, maybe 10 minute walk at most so you can save on parking. There is an Indian restaurant connected to the hotel, while we didn't eat there, it really smelled good. The room was adequate and there was plenty of hot water, too hot in fact, you had to put it on the lowest setting to be comfortable. The satellite T.V didn't have very good reception, but that wasn't a big deal for me. There is a large pool and what I thought was a hot tub, but it was the same temperature as the pool, and this is in November when it should be on. The hotel was quiet although the A/C was pretty noisy but bearable. There is a Florida visitor center across the street and the I-Ride trolley (Goes down International Drive to most attractions) stops just in front of that. There is also a TGIFridays across the street within a one minute walking distance. All in all for someone just visiting Universal or other attractions on International Drive this is a good place to stay.
