Not the nearest to Universal by any means (but there is a free shuttle bus) the Hawthorne Suites makes up for that with budget-friendly rates and lots of family amenities. You’ll get a free hot breakfast in the morning, and free drinks and snacks in the evenings, Monday through Thursday. There is an outdoor heated pool, along with an arcade. Rooms are on the small side and are showing their age, but suites work well for families planning to stay while, as they have a separate living room with a sleeper sofa, a dining area, and a kitchen with a refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, two burner stove, coffeemaker, toaster, dinnerware and cookware. There is also a basketball court, and access to outdoor barbeques.

The hotel had a nice breakfast every morning. Staff very friendly and helpful. Had a great time just hanging out at the hotel.
kids loved the pool and ball court . Nice small bar for adults and a game room for the kids. Very close to all activities in orlando like Icon park and resturants. Hotel was very clean.
