Why I Dig this Deal:

Check out Orlando’s newest attraction!

Universal Orlando is set to open its doors to the newest on-site hotel, Universal’s Endless Summer Resort – Dockside Inn and Suites on December 15 with starting rates as low as $79 a night.

The newest resort is part of Universal Orlando’s line of Value Resort, with standard rooms and 2-bedroom suites. The suites make up more than half the resort, with ample room for families of six to comfortably stay together. Suites feature a kitchenette with a picnic dining and gathering table. Rates for suites are offered as low as $120 a night, based on a four-night stay.

The resort will offer on-site dining options, a lobby bar, multiple swimming pools and a Universal Studios Store right in the lobby.

The Endless Summer Resort is the sister resort to the recently opened Universal’s Surfside Inn and Suites. Nightly room rates average $104, double.

As with all of Universal Orlando’s resorts, guests get the added benefit of early park admission (one hour) and being able to charge purchases to their room while in the parks, plus complimentary shuttles and water taxis.

Another Universal Orlando resort in the higher-end Premier category, Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, will reopen on December 1 following room and suite renovations.

This category of resort entitles guests to free Universal Express Unlimited passes. Normally $129 per person, these passes allow visitors to skip the line and jump into the Express entrance on all rides at Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure. Per night rates start from $318, double.
