I have only been to Universal Studios here in Los Angeles (where I live) but I am sure at some point in my life, I will make the trek to FL… Cause I do have a new son after all that HAS TO see such places!

The hotels with free breakfast are always my first pick. Then they have to have a pool.

I have stayed at Hampton Inn in Pennsylvania and I would love to stay there again at the Universal Studio, $95 is really an excellent price for what it offers.

There are some really nice picks here. When you’re on a trip, especially to a theme park, you need a place to come back to that is comfy and cozy.

I’m really hoping to take the family to Orlando again soon, so this is going to come in handy. I stress and fret over the perfect hotel, location and cost so this will save lots of time.

The “Drury Inn” is my place to be, according to your compilation here. I fancy staying there for a while.

Homewood Suites by Hilton is the best hotel to stay in. I have stayed there numerous times and have been treated very kindly by the staff.
