Great location of Island of Adventure

I chose this hotel for its location to Universal's Island of Adventure. The hotel offers a free shuttle to the park, but I chose to walk instead - it's literally 15 minutes from the hotel to the entrance of Islands of Adventure. Overall hotel itself is fine, but somewhat dated. There is a restaurant on site for breakfast, however this wasn't included in my reservation but could be purchased from a menu or as a buffet. Staff were friendly, and warm choc chip cookies were provided on arrival which was a nice touch. If you're planding to spend time at Islands of Adventure and don't need a fancy resort, then this is a perfect choice.
