Introducing the Two Properties of Universal's Endless Summer Resort.

Universal Orlando's first Value properties introduce extra affordability to your vacation. Surfside Inn and Suites is the first hotel of Universal's Endless Summer Resort, opening Summer 2019. Then a sister hotel, Dockside Inn and Suites, will open in 2020.

Both hotels will offer rates as low as $73*, as well as exclusive benefits like Early Park Admission◊ (valid theme park admission required) and complimentary transportation.

I wonder if they will charge for parking.

I'm sure they will, with free shuttle service to Universal, many would try to use it to avoid paying for parking at the main garages. Universal has always charged for parking everywhere...

I'm impressed with the bargain-level pricing, particularly for the Dockside suites! I'm also totally enthused about the suite floor plan (if the artwork they posted ends up being accurate), which looks like it has a separate "master" bedroom and an attached 2-bed standard room (are those twin beds?) with kitchenette/dining area. In my view, the lack of "real beds" has always been the biggest weakness of all of Disney's comparable suites (e.g., 1-bedroom villas, AoA family suites): if you're a family of four in a Disney 1-bedroom "suite," you won't all get a real bed: somebody has to sleep on a foldout sofa, foldout table, etc. This Universal floor plan strikes me as much more functional (with ample space and storage to boot), and for a fraction of the WDW cost. As my younger friends would say, "totes adorbs!"



I'll be watching the building timeline for these new hotels with interest.

This is going to reek havoc with the local hotels near Universal. Should equal cheap real esate for Universal to buy up if it fits a bigger plan. ????

Do realize Universal needs to fill these hotels so they will be cheap until the head count goes up. Add another park and more attractions at the parks they have and these rooms might start to creep up price wise in a few years. Take advantage of Universals hotel spree while you can, pretty much every level is a good deal for now.

Honestly I think when these open up Universal will be very over built as far as rooms.

I think the family suites sleep 6 so it could be 2 queens and a king
