This has been a great base for a two week family holiday. Our intention was to stay here to access Universal Resort, SeaWorld, Aquatica, Discovery Cove and Busch Gardens. Universal City Walk is a 15 minute walk (25 minutes to Park Gates). We intended to use Ubbers a little but never needed to for Universal. There is a shuttle service twice a day but inevitably it doesn't always run when you want it to. We did use it a few times. Always late when we left hotel but always on time when it left the park.
In terms of the other parks we used Ubber for Discovery Cove (early check in needed), I ride for SeaWorld and Aquatica (great service and two stops close to the hotel) and the free mears shuttle (from Universal) to Busch Gardens. There is a free shuttle bus to Seaworld but this stops at many other hotels.
Staff were extra friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable with air conditioning.
The breakfast was good. Good selection of food and you can make your own fresh waffles.
There is a Walgreens, Burger King and other food choices in the parking lot and surrounding areas.
You can access coffee all day and there is a good sized fridge. The pool doesn't look great in the pictures but it's good enough for a dip when needed.
We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it. less
