Hotel beds are hard and lumpy. I even brought a foam pad. Folded it in half, still had a hard time sleeping. This was after we asked for a soft comfortable beds at check in when they asked us what we would like.

Best stay! The hotel is HUGE so it involves a lot of walking but I was expecting that. The best part was the pleasant surprise of the Stranger Things photo op! Food is great, pools are spectacular it was overall a very magical experience.

We had beautiful weather during our stay which is always a bonus. The hotel is average; but, the staff were exceptional. Not sure we will ever go back to Universal but we would recommend this hotel to someone else headed that way.

Great rooms for a family. Would be great if it was involved with the other Universal hotels and included fast passes.

It was very clean, staff very friendly. Shuttles always there, never waited on one. I wish they had shuttles to and from airport, that being said, taxi was right there at hotel at 5a to take us to airport

Like: Retro hotel was clean, quiet, and just cool. Dislike: Nothing special. Universal traps guests on the resort and only provides premium, park-price food and drink options. In hindsight, a Hampton or Holiday Inn Express would have been equivalent comfort, and far-superior price and convenience.
