I'm staying 4 nights next month. Looking at the Google map, it looks like a Burger King & Wendy's are very close. Walgreens too. Anything else?
Are fridges available at this hotel? Cost? Any good delivery options? Pizza etc. Recommendations? Thanks

I think you missed the deal. It said through Sept. 30 but they seem to have cut it short.

I just stayed four nights @ $69. Well worth the price! Easy 10-15 minute walk to the front of the parks. Rooms were OK. We had a fridge and overlooked the pool. Only complaint was the bugs! Small little things all over the desk and bathroom. They sprayed while we were at the park and it seemed to work. Pretty gross at first.
Walgreens was a 4 minute walk away. Very handy!
Overall, a nice cheap hotel. Friendly staff. I'll do that again (at that price).

We have stayed at this hotel twice and really like it. Yes you can walk to Universal but it's about 10 mins. take a shuttle if its readily available, it can be a tiring walk if it's really hot!

The only reason we are not staying there this time is because we wanted to stay on site for a change.

We never saw any bugs when we were there.

I stayed there last year because of such low rate. Since I was spending all my days at parks, I didn't use pool or amenities. Very clean, free breakfast and walking distance to parks so I didn't need to pay to park.

I would stay there again.
