We stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago, before the renovations. The pool was noticeably cleaner than last time. It is a basic hotel with basic facilities, but you don't go to Orlando to stay in the hotel room. The air con is really noisy, so we tended to turn it off when we were in the room.
Universal is a genuine 10 minute walk from the hotel, so you save quite a bit on parking - it's not much further than the far reaches of the parking lots!
Breakfast is basic but you take as much as you want. There are several restaurants nearby with full breakfast buffets for $3.99 if you want more.
