This is not the first time we have been there and it won't be the last. Rooms are clean, fresh, the service is fantastic and the location can't be beat. We'll be back in October for Halloween Horror Nights!

It's hard to believe you spend over a $100 a night and you don't even get an orange juice for breakfast! Thats a game changer since other motels in that same area are cheaper and have a free Complimentary Continental Breakfast! We have annual passes for Universal Orlando so we stay in that are once or twice a month. Headed...

After checking in our room, we immediately discovered the filthiness of the bathroom...hair everywhere, rings around the tub, it was just nasty. Thank goodness the manager on duty quickly moved us to another room, credited our buffet breakfast tickets. At breakfast, we gave the guy our 3 pink breakfast vouchers, went through the breakfast line once, other family members went...

Nice room, nice exterior grounds. Nice pool area, tennis court & basketball hoop for the kids. Close to Universal Studios & Wet & Wild. Extra $4.50 per night "resort fee" charged :-( Don't waste your $ on the all you can eat Breakfast buffet for $7.95. Half the items advertised to be there, were not. IHOP & Dennys is nearby...

I reserved a King suit, but was given double bed upon check in, and was charged the price for king suit room. My breakfast order was wrong ( flip/flop) attempt was made to correct it; however, meal cost of $45.00 was never adjusted.

I used my BW rewards points, and was very happy with the location and quality of the room. Moved to another Orlando BW after 3 day stay here which would have required 2x the points, and it was very poor in comparison. This room was large and comfy, the pool area looked great, didn't have time to use it. Location...

This turned out to be a great location all around. Staff was friendly and provided great service. The restaurant staff was on point keeping the items stocked and looking fresh even though they were busy. Check in was painless informative while the express check out made our exit seamless.

I was a little hesitant about this hotel due to mixed reviews. But I must say, I am one of the pickiest people about hotels, and I can find absolutely nothing wrong with this hotel. Quite the opposite. The rooms are very spacious with large tv, two vanities, great views, air cools down perfectly, water pressure is fantastic, nice size...

Great time in Orlando, Florida. The hotel was great, good customer service. I truly enjoyed myself the weather was nice it was 93 degrees daily. Plenty of sun and fun near everything, walking distance to the water park. Food and shopping 5 minutes away, Universal around the corner and highway right there.

We stayed with four people in a room for two nights and after those nights we decided to stay for one more. The hotel is located on a convenient location, close to all the main attractions and restaurants.
