" Beautiful facility but watch out for time shares!"
The resort is really nice, one of the first places I've stayed where the bed was actually comfortable. Be aware though, that they are affordable because they are going to try to sell you time shares. We sat through the presentation (they tell you it's free VIP breakfast, it's a time share demo) we did it for the 75 dollars, but they told us no more than 90 minutes..3 hours later we missed our shuttle to universal and they got very very pushy about buying a time share. We had to talk to 3 different people, keep telling them no, we aren't interested before they finally got the point. Would have walked away but we wanted them to honor the deal and pay us for our time. They eventually did. So, if you decide to listen to their spiel, be aware that you have the right to walk out at 90 min. Or don't go at all.

Nice place to stay, but it is part of "time share" by any other name. If you "take a tour" it will subject you to sales pitches.
Nothing is free,to get the free, take the tour.
As for the facility at this location. It gives the appearance of an older, large apartment complex. The Units are nice, but obviously referbed.
All that said, it was a nice, quiet place to stay..

International Drive's largest claim to fame is the Universal Orlando Resort, home to two theme parks — Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios; the water park, Wet 'n Wild; and the entertainment area, CityWalk. The I-Ride trolley (really a bus) stops frequently along the street. At the north end of International Drive are two shopping meccas: Prime Outlets-Orlando and The Mall at Millenia.
