    If you are doing Disney & Universal & other Orlando attractions ... or tagging a few days of resort time before or after cruise looking for a good value .... the new Universal Hotel Endless Summer will be opening the first section Surfside Inn & Suites in August 2019, followed by the Dockside Inn & Suites in 2020.

    I priced a room for Sept 2019 compared with a room for same dates at POP Century in 2018. The Universal hotel is coming in much lower by $43 per night, putting POP at 50% more than Surfside. And there are dates that Surfside was even lower (rates start at $73). There is NO comparison in the rooms and you can even get a suite for less than a POP room...




    Step Into The Surf Lifestyle

    Opening Summer 2019
    This brand new hotel introduces extra affordability to your Universal vacation, with the lowest rates of any Universal Orlando Resortâ„¢ hotel. The feeling here is relaxed and easy, with a fun surf vibe woven throughout. In addition to sunny, beach-themed rooms, Surfside Inn and Suites will feature spacious, two-bedroom suites that sleep six, making it the perfect spot for families of any size to base their Universal Orlando Resortâ„¢ vacation.

    A sister hotel, Dockside Inn and Suites, will open in 2020. Both hotels will be part of Universal's Endless Summer Resort, a vibrant and sunny retreat.

    Looks awesome! We are staying at Cabana Bay in November. To keep costs down, we booked a regular, 2-queen room rather than a suite. It sounds like suites in the new hotel will be even more affordable.

    DH and I have been talking about a May 2020 vacation with the kids. We were hoping to get some time at Universal and this may be an incentive!
