Never fails expectations!

Ellensburg, Washington

This hotel has been out go to the past 5 or so years we’ve been to Universal Studios. We love it. The biggest thing for us? Water Taxi. Folks if you’re a family with kids who are old enough to run around, the taxi is awesome. Those who wanted to come back to the hotel later than others just stayed as late as they wanted and came back on the taxi with ease. This is in addition to the beautiful scenery and architecture, awesome pool, and easy access food. Yes it’s spendy, but keep in mind you receive express passes to use for the duration of your stay.

A little disappointed

Cleethorpes, United Kingdom

On arriving the place looked excellent. Lovely surroundings and reception area.the room was large and clean but nothing special.Maybe the east wing is one of the cheaper rooms im not sure,but for the price i was disappointed. It was a garden view room but all you looked out at was trees, nothing like photos iv viewed.For a non driver you are rather a captive audience, the boat to the parks is very convienient and regular but the bus is only every half hour and if you wish to explore a little more it is very time consuming having to get to a local bus, and if you dont want to do the parks every day your stuck.For all that the staff were very friendly and helpful but i have stayed in nicer hotels for less money than i paid for this one.Maybe its me but i wouldnt choose this hotel again.
