    Family visit -universal birthday celebration

    We had a wonderful time 3 families 2 suites and loved early access. Came back to hotel when park got crowded and lounged by the pool . Then returned at night when it was cooler and less people. Loved the easy access to the park without outrageous price.

    Family trip

    The hotel was lovely but we could hear noises from rooms next door above and below us which caused disturb sleep on most nights. But the friendliness of the hotel was absolutely amazing and would stay their again if the noise issues were resolved

    2023 Universal Trip...

    Our stay at Universal's Endless Summer Resort - Dockside Inn and Suites was flawless. From purchasing our park tickets onsite to relaxing by the pool, we had a wonderful trip. Our family of 4 enjoyed the ease of being able to utilize the transportation between the resort and theme park. Would highly recommend.

    Better than a port key to Harry Potter Adventure

    This hotel was a perfect connection to Universal for a wonderful stay! Everything you need from shuttle, pool, shopping, dining, and early park entrance. The staff was helpful and the room was perfect. The extra bed instead of just two queens is amazing for a family.
