Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Doclbj Great location for Universal parks
Nice short walk to Universal parks and City Walk. Nice pool in back, private environment there, heated and can bring in drinks from TGIF. The staff was helpful at the front desk. The TGIF is service-able and has good drink specials.

We enjoyed our visit........the hotel, personnel and services were excellent. The only issue I found was the business center was not operating because the cash card machine was out of order.

Location across from the Universal Orlando gates was perfect and the hotel provided a free shuttle service into the Universal complex. There is also a TGI Fridays attached which had an excellent breakfast special. Lastly it was adjacent to the Florida Tourist Bureau. All of this made it especially easy to go to the park every day.
We were upgraded to a suite upon arrival which was much appreciated. The hallway carpets appeared to be new - however (and most likely due to the volume of tourists) the walls were pretty banged up and in need of paint and the room doors had been over-painted through the years and in need of replacement. Lastly the bathrooms, closets and kitchenettes are in need of upgrades. Having said that the rooms were clean and the linens and pillows fresh (always a plus).
All things considered I would recommend to family and friends

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Suites Universal for 2 nights. The check-in was fast. The suite was spacious, clean and comfortable. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. There is a small pool which was nice not too many loungers but it was not busy. You can walk to Universal across a major highway but they will get you a taxi for about $5.00 each way which I used several times. There is a TGIFs attached to the property for convenience. There also is a Walgreens, Starbucks, Orlando Ale House and Burger King within a 6 minute walk from hotel. Overall for the AAA rate this hotel was the best bang for the buck on my week vacation. Highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Becky5063 sloppy housekeeping & poor property maintenance
No outlets to plug in accessories, including the floor lamp in the room....had to ask the cleaning staff to clean our bathroom...had to ask for additional toilet paper...housekeeping kept trying to enter our room without even asking...we only had 6 hangers for two people...parking and exterior entrances were poorly marked...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rissa2012 Awful Service
We had ants in our room. We also missed a diner reservation due to no water and we could not get ready. I did call the manager and she did not want to help nor was she apologetic about any of it. The water took about 12 hours to come back on which was ridiculous . I will not give a good review and I will not recommend this hotel to anyone. Our check in was also inconvenient and very slow. I was passed off to 3 different people before my reservation was found. They were very unprofessional.
