Average Accomadations Jun 27, 2006
My sister and I stayed at this hotel for two nights. We were most interested in a place that would give us easy access to Universal Studios since we did not have a rental car, and it fulfilled that requirement nicely. We actually had two options: a shuttle bus system that was inexpensive but would have multiple stops along the route or walking about a mile. We opted for the walking; we're both in good shape and we would be spending a good chunk of our day in the amusement park standing in lines anyway. The walk did require crossing a main and busy thoroughfare (thank you, stoplights!). Also, after a full day of activity, the walk was not as appealing although I guess we could have hopped on the shuttle then. The other advantage to walking meant that we didn't have to bother with crowds for a seat. We felt safe on the walk even at night since the path was well-lit and there were usually other tourists nearby.
We also felt safe at the hotel. This was the first time I had stayed at a hotel with just one other girl (all other trips were either with adults or large groups). At no time did I feel uncomfortable which really helped in getting a good night's rest!
The room was well-kept and certainly spacious enough for just two people. Overall the amenities were what you would expect from your average chain hotel.
There were restaurants nearby such as the TGIFridays we ate at the second night. CityWalk at Universal also provides some fun dining options (such as our first night's choice at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville).
