Average hotel, some warnings.

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

We booked our room on hotels.com, and paid ahead. Arrived on a 3/26/11 Sat am just after midnight. Room was clean and comfortable. We were sleeping in the room on the side of the sun and was was an annoyance, but the drapes were pretty well designed once we adjusted them and got the room darker.
Hotel whirlpool was out of service and looked like it was going to be permanent. Exercise room had 2-3 machines that no one ever used. Pool was small but adequate for getting wet. All the hotel pictures must be taken with wide angle lens. The little breakfast buffet wasn't bad. Free. Both cereals offered were sugary, Raisin Bran and Frosted Flakes. Little scrambled egg patties, sausage links, little sweet rolls, coffees, several juices, and make-your-own-waffles rounded it out. Plus coffees & tea.Not bad. The hotel server whisked everything off the buffet at 10:01 am. (sweet rolls reappeared until eaten...)
Transportation is an issue. A joke. The 'van to Universal' leaves at 9am returns at 4:30. ONCE. This is typical of most of the hotels there. Get a car ahead of time. Rental companies will OVERcharge you if you call direct. Seems like hotel gets a cut somehow if you go through front desk.
We had to go pick up tickets for Disney at 'Tickets at Work' and REGRET we didn't get a car. Were charged $45. for a 20 min round trip by the hotel van driver, after the clerk quoted us $60.00 from a 'cab company'. We took the van.
To get a ride to universal the van driver (same van company!) -apparently a friend of the front desk clerk & hangs out at the hotel - wanted 20 dollars. Once we got to Universal the ride back was $4.95. Next day we asked her to call a cab with a meter and were told it would be ten dollars. We agreed since it was rainy. Instead of a cab, we got the same van company for $10.00. Call your OWN cab.
What was cost to Disney? $40.00 each way.... same van company.
To get to Disney on our own wasn't too bad. We caught the city trolley. The directions from the front desk seemed to influence us to take the 'hotel' van. We took the trolley anyway. The front desk directions had us go to the end of the line and then catch a city bus to Disney ticket center. Found out from the trolley driver that we could have gotten off at Sea World and gotten a city bus. Would have saved us 40 mins of travel. Cost $3.75 each way per person. Get your own directions from the trolley or bus driver. They are there to help you!
The hotel was ok. lean, and was cleaned each day.'Business Center' was a small room with 2 computers secured by room key slot. You could print your airline boarding pass. Some parents would bring their kids in to play on the computer while they worked. The lobby 'search' computer for activities and restaurants didn't work. Very little around hotel for food, other than fast.
Not bad for price. Holiday Inn Express is closer if you walk to Universal.
Get a car if you plan to go to Disney. If it's Universal and Sea World, or Wet N Wild, you can use the Trolley.

Unique Quality: Again, the pictures were professionally done. The areas shown weren't quite that bright and beautiful. The pool is NOT as large as it looks in the pictures. Getting 3 familes in the with 2-3 kids each will make it crowded.

Directions: About 2 miles outside of Universal Studios.
