The theme of this property is really fun. From the lobby, to the pool, food court and rooms. We love staying here. Never have to wait long for a bus to the parks. My husband uses a scooter and everyone is always very helpful. I can't wait to go back. It's very comfortable with plenty of places to relax. Our last night there they were playing movies by the pool. So much fun!!!!
This is very minor, but I dislike the bedding. They use a flat sheet instead of a fitted. This complaint seems silly (even as I type it) but it was uncomfortable at 2 a.m. after a very long day at the park. But I love everything else about this property.
This place is way more than a hotel! It was a vacation in and of itself. We would love to go back and spend more time there!
The lazy river was the most relaxing, after a day out. Buses to the Universal parks was handy. Nice looking hotel inside and outside. Security patrol on the parking lot at night time.
Had to buy the tubes for the lazy river, or bring your own. Staff just doing their job, but not make you feel welcome. There is no parking space available, when you check in or out, unless, you get lucky and find one, before someone else takes the short term spot. No business centre, been told at the desk, it's not a business hotel. All I wanted is to print out my boarding pass. Lucky, a lady on vacation, told me, the guys booking transportations, they willing to help, if I ask them nice, which they did. Not returning here any more, didn't make me happy and welcome. I can get that in any other cheaper hotel.
The Cabana Bay was everything you look for in a theme park hotel: super convenient, great pool, with on-site cafeteria and souvenir shops. The park shuttle bus came by every few minutes and the ride was quick.
The lazy river at the Continental/Americana pool requires you to buy inner tubes, which only got a couple of uses from us. it would be more efficient to allow guests to borrow them.
The theme was interesting and was somewhat identical, the main area of the souvenir shop, Starbucks, bowling area was really nice but that's about it.
The quality of the food was awful, would not call any staff member a cook, service was slow without a smile, towels by the pool laying on the floor everywhere, walk ways with many towels laying everywhere, plastic cups thrown on the floor, the usage of illegal marihuana was smelled by elevators at my building the Americana and hallways were filled with trays of dirt and smelly old so called food. Will never return here
The location was ideal, situated within walking distance of Universal's theme park.
The Diner had good variety, in the choices available, but the quality of food was on the low side.
It has a great location and the theme is cute
Nothing works in this hotel and the staff are rude. Fridge doesn't work, hot water doesn't work, heater is intermittent. The tiny windows don't open so the room is very stuffy. The beds and linens are not hotel quality. There are many many hotel choices in Orlando. One can get a much better room than this for the money and pass on their rude staff.
Perfect for families. Very friendly & helpful staff. Cafeteria that is opened late. Starbucks in the lobby for early mornings. Convenient & timely shuttle busses to parks. I would definitely stay here again!
It's a little expensive but that's to be expected considering it's an on-site hotel. Personally, the price is worth the convenience and amenities.
My daughter & her family were staying at the hotel, and I joined them for 1 night.I checked in early before rooms were available. I asked for a room close to hers and near an elevator if possible. The staffer said they'd do their best, took my cell phone number, gave me a key card and said they'd text me while I was at the theme park. They came through on all counts & even programmed my key card remotely.
Packed buses---standing room only. Not frequent enough on return trips. Had to wait a while both days to get a bus back.
I enjoyed everything .,I enjoyed everything .The staff , the pools
Pools are awesome.
Not a sit down restaurant on site.
We liked that the room was very clean. It was great to be able to take the bus to the park and not have to worry about parking.
