The most affordable hotel option at Universal Orlando Resort is now accepting reservations.

Opening in August 2019, Universal’s Endless Summer Resort – Surfside Inn and Suites will be the first hotel in the destination’s new Value hotel category, with rates starting at less than $100 per night. It will offer a hotel option for groups looking for theme park thrills, exclusive benefits and a seamless Universal Orlando Youth experience at the destination’s most affordable rates.


“This hotel checks every box – quality, spacious suites and exclusive benefits that only come with staying in one of our hotels at a value that is simply unmatched in Orlando,” said Vince LaRuffa, senior vice president of Resort Sales and Marketing at Universal Orlando Resort. “With the addition of this new Value hotel category, we now offer a hotel that accommodates any group’s style and budget.”

Surfside Inn and Suites allows groups to take advantage of the perfect spot to stay while participating in one of Universal Orlando's dynamic Youth Programs. The hotel will offer bright, surf-themed standard rooms and spacious, 2 bedroom suites that sleep up to six, making it the perfect place for groups of any size to experience Universal Orlando.

Groups will also enjoy exclusive benefits, like early park admission, letting them breeze into the parks an hour before everyone else, and complimentary transportation means it’s a quick hop between the parks and the hotel.

Brought to life by the award-winning Universal Creative team, the 750-room Surfside Inn and Suites will feature a relaxed and fun surf vibe with beach details woven throughout the experience. It will be the destination’s seventh hotel in partnership with Loews Hotels & Co.

Sister property Universal’s Endless Summer Resort – Dockside Inn and Suites will add 2,050 rooms and suites and open in 2020. Both hotels will be located minutes away from Universal Orlando’s three theme parks – Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal’s Volcano Bay – as well as its dining and entertainment complex – Universal CityWalk.
