Big news for Universal Orlando Resort. The theme park’s Endless Summer Resort Surfside Inn and Suites is now accepting reservations.

Though the opening date isn’t until August 2019, bookings for the 750-room, beach-themed hotel are expected to fill up quickly.

“This hotel checks every box – quality, family-friendly suites and exclusive benefits that only come with staying in one of our hotels at a value that is simply unmatched in Orlando,” Vince LaRuffa, Senior Vice President of Resort Sales and Marketing at Universal Orlando Resort, stated in a press release. “With the addition of this new Value hotel category, we now offer a hotel for every style and budget.”

Surfside Inn and Suites is expected to be the most affordable hotel option at Universal Orlando Resort, representing the first hotel in the destination’s new “Value” hotel category— a category of hotels with nightly rates starting at less than $100 per night.

Standard room rates will start as low as $73 for a seven-night stay, and as low as $85 per night for a four-night stay. The hotel will offer 390 2 Bedroom Suites, starting as low as $111 per night for a weeklong stay. The 2 Bedroom Suites sleep up to six guests, and house separate bath and vanity areas, with a featured kitchenette.

Universal Orlando Resort recognizes the new hotel as “an option for families looking for theme park thrills, exclusive benefits and a seamless Universal Orlando vacation experience at the destination’s most affordable rates.”

In addition to excellent nightly rates, Surfside Inn and Suites guests can experience all of the exclusive Universal Orlando Resort hotel benefits.

The benefits include:

Early Park Admission – allowing guests to breeze into one of Universal Orlando’s three amazing theme parks an hour before everyone else.

Complimentary shuttle bus transportation to and from the theme parks and Universal CityWalk.

Destination-wide charging privileges with room key.

Complimentary delivery of merchandise purchased throughout the resort to the hotel.

Surfside Inn and Suites is one of Loews Hotels & Co’s partner-brand hotels. The company currently owns and/or operates 24 hotels and resorts across

the continent.

Surfside Inn and Suites’ sister property, Dockside Inn and Suites, will add 2,050 rooms and suites when it opens in 2020. Both hotels will be located just 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.
