Hallways and public areas were dirty. Staff wasnโ€™t overly friendly but werenโ€™t rude either, just didnโ€™t seem to want to be there. Disappointed to find that we had to purchase tubes to float the lazy River. Pandemic precautions were good.

The building we stayed in had no fresh air ventilation and smelled wet in the hallways. The room had no fan and clothes from the pool and rain could never dry out. The other buildings did not have this issue. Due to COVID there was no housekeeping available and our neighbor had trays of breakfast outside the door for 2 days. On a positive note you could text the concierge and they would bring you anything needed, and answer any questions. Disappointed there wasnโ€™t any drinking fountains or places to fill water bottles besides your sink. Water available for purchase for $4 a bottle. Ice machine had dirty ice on two occasions.

I would give this hotel 3 stars, but we had a few encounters that left my family with a bad taste in our mouthโ€™s. We stayed here for about 5 days as we celebrated my daughterโ€™s 4th birthday at universal studios, very convenient and close to the park, no hassle with transportation back & forth to the parks, very clean and sanitary, we even had early access!... BUTTTT There was a very rude Female security officer at the front of the hotel one day upon exiting the building (my family needed new wristbands before heading to the park so we wouldnโ€™t have to get rescanned.) the entire stay At cabana weโ€™ve politely asked all the security officers to not use the temp gun on our foreheads because we donโ€™t want our BLACK CHILDREN to get used to anyone putting or simulating GUN gestures to them. Itโ€™s not normal, and we will not get use to it. There are other ways & other body parts to scan for temps, so this black female security officer looked at me as if I had 5 heads and proceeds to tell me there policy. We asked to speak with a manager and she eventually corrected the situation but I could tell she had a hard time understanding why we felt so strongly about this issue... Second issue, Horrible food selection in the cafeteria/dinner with limited healthier options. Everything is fried and or pizza. No room service, Also there is nothing to eat on the property after 9 pm, no food or snack vending only soda and ice. More issues but not enough room to write them. Hope it helps.

It didnโ€™t look like the pics it was more dirty then that they really need to revamp the place but other than that itโ€™s steps away from volcano bay and has a nice outdoor pool and bars and little places to have fires itโ€™s nice just the rooms are outdated I guess they think cuz itโ€™s supposed to be old school style that they donโ€™t have to update
