Perfect!

I liked being able to just send a text message to the front desk advising them of any needs I had. Property was extremely clean. We had a blast.

Could text the concierge service.

The staff encountered were always helpful and friendly. The resort itself is new so, it was clean with a bright airy fell. Amenities were few but, it's a value type resort so, that was expected. Buses were always available to the park even during peak times. They were great! The only downfall was the noise! EVERYWHERE you go it's noisy. Not only kids but the parents seem to have lost there minds as well! It may be due to it was July 4th week but, that was a total disappointment which made me give the lower rating. I guess the walls are super thin because I could hear clearly the neighbors conversations. People yelling in the hall all times of night! Food court was the normal pricey food that wasn't the best but, again it's a value resort. All in all I would only stay here if I received a GREAT rate $80 and under.

Upgraded to pool view just by asking for a view great staff member

Checked out one day. Earlier than plan. Property could not refund nor credit one day. Had to seek refund thru orbitz. Will orbitz provide refund or credit for one day?

Great location...super clean...friendly staff!

My stay at Dockside was the best! My son and I had a great time. Having the transportation to the parks was very convenient. The cafeteria was also one of the best perks of staying at Dockside. So happy we stayed there and we’ll definitely be back!

Great place, good food, and convenient. Pools were nice but shallow. Amanda at the reception desk was amazing checking us in and getting my sister set up for check in the next day

I liked the pool and spacious rooms. I hated how crowded it became due to a nation wide cheer competition. The pool was super crowded and it was very difficult to sleep due to all the noise and commotion that lasted until about midnight. I never would have stayed there if I knew how loud and crowded it would be.

Property was clean and staff was very quick to help. Breakfast not included—that was a bummer. Rooms are small, but amenities are worth it.

Loved everything

Excellent stay . We had a great time. Staff was super nice . Food is great

Great new hotel. Cafeteria has great food, room and hotel was clean, friendly staff and shuttles to and from Universal parks was great to have. No need to rent a car. We went the first week of May 2021. They did a great job during this pandemic. Everything was clean and tidy. Daily temperature checks before leaving the hotel and sanitizer throughout the hotel. Would definitely recommend staying here. We will be back.

This is a new property and was very clean and pretty. We liked the shuttle service to the park and getting early access. The pools are very nice, however, only one was open for most of our stay. We knew this was likely just due to low occupancy. We liked that the food court was reasonably priced. The only negatives we have is that the check in process was very slow and when we mentioned it, the person who seemed to be In charge was very rude about it. There were only 3 people ahead of us and after fifteen minutes, the same two people were still checking in. The guy walked by and we asked him why the line was so slow. He basically told us to take out our phones, find something to look at and just quit worrying about it. The way he said it was even ruder. The blankets are very, very thin. We had a two bedroom suite and for it to stay cool enough in the main room, we about froze in the bedroom. Would have been nice to have had thicker blankets, even if they were just stored in the closet. Would have been nice to be able to order food out by the pool. Overall, great resort for a budget hotel and would definitely return again.

The family suites are really great. We had 6 people and we had enough room. Pool was fun. Both bars were great with fun cocktails. We had a great time and will definitely be back.
