If you are looking for a hotel that is close to Universal Studios, Orlando, and the airport, feel free to check out Wingate by Wyndham Universal and Convention Center. Great for business or pleasure- or a mix of both- the Wingate is a great place to stay that won’t break the bank.

I am traveling with my son, who is 5. I know this is terrible of me, but I really liked the fact that there was an IHOP, KFC, and Taco Bell in the parking lot of the hotel. He almost never eats fast food, but when on vacation, hey, you never know when you will need food in a hurry 🙂 The hotel also is a stop for the I RIde Trolley, which is a fast and easy way to travel the Orlando and Kissimmee area. You can hop on and off all day long for a flat fee of $4, free for kids under 12. Go to any of your favorite spots like Sea World or WonderWorks, even hit up a 7-11 and grab a burger and then head back to your hotel- all for less then parking. Easy.

There was an extended continental breakfast in the dining area off the lobby, were you can have some toast and coffee, or waffles, cereal, sausage, eggs, and more. It always makes traveling so much easier when the hotel has breakfast included. When booking a hotel, it is one of the first things I look for. I hate having to go out to breakfast, and since most hotels do not include kitchenettes, it’s just extra money that doesn’t need to be spent.

When we checked in, Charlotte (who was working behind the desk) made checking in fast and easy, and asked us if we had any specific plans while we were in the area. She got my son some brochures of places we planned to go to, and suggested others as well. She was very sweet with my little guy.

We checked into our room, and went to the conveniently located IHOP, LOL. Plane trips will do that to you 🙂 Afterwards, we went and hung out by the pool for a while. We had the pool to ourselves, and my son thought he was king of the hotel. It was of course, gated off and you need a key to enter. There was a bathroom nearby, thankfully, because as all mommies will know, as soon as they hit the pool, they have to potty!

The rooms were comfortable, ours had two queen beds. The hotel has 3 rooms to choose from, and the choice of king or two queen beds. Every guest can use the 24 hour business center, fitness center, pool, whirlpool (it was broken while we were there), and free shuttles to Universal Studios and the Holy Land Experience.

You can request a roll-away bed or a crib if you need one. The bathrooms are clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful. A good hotel to stay at if you are in the Universal area 🙂
