3/5 Okay

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Staff & service
The property is under renovations. However rooms can really use an update as they seemed extremely old and bathroom had moldy appliances. It was great we can eat at the Fridays next door and kids ate free. It served our purpose for one night

Disliked: Staff & service
Second time staying here. Last year was still under construction. Stayed 3 nights. First night ok. Second night loud noise above our room (on 3rd floor) sounded like off balance washing machine for 30-45 minutes middle of night, and repeated intermittently throughout next day. Called and stopped at front desk. “We don’t know what it is” and no follow-up with us. Third night no hot water for our showers. Disappointing. Yet very convenient to Universal and City Walk.

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
It was going through renovations when I was there but it didn't effect my stay. My room wasn't renovated yet so i can tell they definitely need it. Nothing stood out to be extravagant. What did bother me is they now charge $25 to park and it's just an open parking lot. There's no gate and it's not secure in any way. I'll more than likely just stay at the double tree across the street. Atleast when i party to park there it's got a gate so random people can't just drive through the parking lot.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Hotel is under renovation, if I would have known in advance I would have chosen a different hotel. Trash cans around the building were overflowing constantly, pool and lounge area outside could use some upkeep. The cushions on the chairs were dirty and ripped. The bathroom door In our room wouldn’t shut because it was the wrong size. There is a $20 per night parking fee and it’s not even a resort. I did not see that in the details when booking through Expedia but supposedly it’s written there. Only 1 elevator was working and it was filthy, And to top it off there were homeless people sleeping on the hallway floor as you come in the back entrance of the building by the pool. He used pillows from the lobby stairs to sleep on and once he was gone they stayed there for most of the day.
