Hotels & Resorts Universal

A great tour of Universal's Endless Summer, Surfside Inn and Suites

There is nothing more than we like (except maybe Universal Orlando Resort) than anything that has to do with the beach. This is one of the main reasons that we fell in love with Surfside Inn and Suites from the second we walked into the lobby.

Lighting that hangs from the ceiling that look like bubbles and an impressive wooden wall feature that resembles a wave is just the beginning of how the atmosphere at this resort just make you want to put on your flip flops (yes, we know) and grab an umbrella drink.

This fun, family-oriented value hotel introduces extra affordability to your Universal vacation. Kathy, our guide for the walking tour, led us through the resort which is relaxed and easy, with a cool surf vibe woven throughout. Guests enjoy Universal theme park benefits like visiting The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ and Universal’s Volcano Bay an hour before everyone else*. With complimentary transportation, it’s a quick hop between the parks and the hotel.

In addition to beach-themed standard rooms, Surfside Inn and Suites features spacious, 2-bedroom suites that sleep up to six, making it the perfect spot for families of any size to experience a Universal Orlando Resort vacation. The rooms were bright and cheery and even had genuine surfboards in the room!

The standard room has 2 queen beds and plenty of room for the family looking for a fun and affordable vacation.

The grounds of the resort also have the beachy vibes and Kathy treated me to an umbrella drink which tasted just like being relaxed with your toes in the sand. The pool and other recreational areas are tropical themed and the whole resort is just a calming walk after a long fun day at the parks.

A sister hotel, Dockside Inn and Suites, will open in March 2020. Both hotels will be part of Universal’s Endless Summer Resort, a vibrant and sunny retreat.
