    Hi guys, the air rates look alot cheaper to fly out on November 26 instead of the 28th. Does anyone know of a reasonable place to stay for 2 nights that we could get to Universal from? They wanted a little over $300. for 2 nights at a value and I was hoping to do a little better.

    What about a Hampton inn, there are a couple very close to US, coming out at 65-75 per night plus tax. You get free breakfast.

    Hampton Inn and SUITES are a good bet. The Inns themselves are pretty small. Homewood Suites with a good rate are nice too.

    Marriott will have some alternatives, with Springhill Suites or Townplace...(I think??) Suites.

    Suites are always more preferable from my perspective as they have little refrigerators (or full kitchens) and at least microwaves. Allows you to better control your "food" eh?

    We do stay at Hamptons alot when we travel, there is a wonderful one we found in Dobson North carolina that has a winery!! The nicest Hampton I've ever seen and they gave you a free bottle of wine at check in. The king bedrooms were beautiful! I wonder if they have transport to Universal?

    oddly enough we've never stayed on I-drive, when we've stayed off site it's usually been at the Sunspree on SR525. But it's been at least 7 years that we've stayed there. How is I Drive? We will be flying I think, so it would be nice to have either transport or a car rental on site.

    Never had a bad stay at one, we use them when travelling in the US.

    Yes, they are like them, only I think they are nicer and usually newer.

    Some Hamptons, Brit are not nice. I stay in Hilton chains almost exclusively, and unless it's a single overnight, I won't stay in a Hampton Inn (but do use the Suites often).

    There is one in St. Augustine that is horrid. :(

    Are you talking about the one on the beach? We stayed there and it was the least clean of any I've stayed at. We have had good luck with all the rest though.
