This hotel wouldn’t be a Universal Orlando hotel without some incredible benefits. Here’s a list of some of the many benefits that come with staying at Surfside Inn and Suites. 

  • One of the best benefits is Early Park Admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Universal’s Volcano Bay, one hour before the theme parks open. This means you are first to your favorite rides. (Valid theme park admission required. Select attractions.) 
  • Complimentary transportation to all Universal Orlando theme parks and Universal’s CityWalk makes getting around the resort fast and easy. The ride is less than five minutes, so you’re not wasting any time getting to the action.
  • Forget carrying your wallet around, with Resort-wide charging privileges, your room key card is your main form of payment.
  • Complimentary delivery of merchandise purchased at your favorite stores throughout the resort to your hotel so you don’t need to carry your bags around while you’re screaming on your favorite rides. 
  • Your room key gives you complimentary club-to-club access to select Universal CityWalk venues as long as you are a guest. Just show your room key to get into the clubs.

The incredible immersive experience of Universal Orlando doesn’t end when you leave the parks – it continues back at your hotel as you step into your room.

Surf. Sand. Endless Summer. That’s what we’re all about at Universal’s Endless Summer Resort. This resort consists of two totally free-spirited hotels, Surfside Inn and Suites & Dockside Inn and Suites, which make for the perfect theme park retreat.

Staying at either Surfside Inn and Suites or Dockside Inn and Suites will give you a seamless Universal Orlando vacation – complete with exclusive theme park benefits, including Early Park Admission – at our most affordable price point ever. Bring the entire family because these new 2-Bedroom Suites can sleep up to six people. Let’s dive in and see how these hotels will keep your summer fun going all year round.

Surfside Inn and Suites will surround you by the surf

You’ll feel like you’re one with the ocean at Surfside Inn and Suites, Universal Orlando’s seventh hotel in partnership with Loews Hotels & Co, opening June 27. As you make your way toward the check-in desk, vibrant surf and wave-like features will be everywhere you look. You’ll step across sand-colored flooring that transports you just below the surf. You can chill on the sea glass-inspired couches and gaze up at the light fixtures designed to resemble bubbles forming from the crash of the blue wave overhead.

You’ll find a shortboard surfboard in your suite

The moment you walk into your 2-Bedroom Suite at Surfside Inn and Suites, you’ll be greeted by a shortboard surfboard in a room filled with everything from colorful artwork to vibrant tie-dyed curtains, and details that give you that bright, open and serene feeling you get at the beach.

And, just like you would find at the beach, the 2-Bedroom Suites at both hotels also feature a charming picnic table for the whole family to gather around before heading out to one of our three theme parks. The best thing about these suites is that there is plenty of room to spread out! Up to six people will fit super comfortably in these rooms.

You’ll be able to hang loose and chill at both resorts’ pools, but what’s extra cool about the pool at Surfside Inn and Suites is that it’s shaped like a surfboard. With a drink in hand, you’ll find this pool is the perfect place to keep your Universal Orlando vacation going.

When you’re ready for some grub, head inside the hotel to refuel. Look up and you’ll find surfers trying to catch the perfect swell above the surface.

Across the street at Dockside Inn and Suites – opening Spring 2020 – you’ll be surrounded by natural woods and colors that make you feel as though you’re hanging out on a pier. This hotel has a relaxed, calm and carefree vibe. The lobby’s driftwood features evoke the feeling of gathering around a sunset beach bonfire.

In the rooms at Dockside Inn and Suites, you’ll feel at ease lounging in the coastal aesthetic that includes wood finishings and sunset artwork. Inside the 2-Bedroom Suites, you’ll find an actual longboard surfboard. These rooms will definitely put you in relaxation mode as the sun begins to set – and forget having to pay for two connecting rooms because your entire family can stay together in these suites.

Last fall, Universal Orlando Resort revealed that not one, but two all-new hotel options were coming to their property and they just shared with us a few more details about these properties. The new hotel complex will be known as Universal’s Endless Summer Resort. It will feature two hotels: Surfside Inn and Suites and Dockside Inn and Suites.

Just like Universal’s existing hotels, these all-new options will be a partnership with Loews Hotels & Co. Guests will enjoy a relaxed and easy vibe, and fun surf and beachy details will be woven in throughout the Surfside Inn and Suites & Dockside Inn and Suites experience.

One of the most exciting parts of all of this is the price. Universal’s Endless Summer Resort will introduce extra affordability to your Universal vacation. Both hotels will offer rates as low as $73 per night and introduce Universal Orlando’s all-new Value hotel category.

But don’t let the Value category fool you. When you stay at either Surfside Inn and Suites or Dockside Inn and Suites, your family will enjoy the exclusive benefits that only come with staying at a Universal Orlando Resort hotel. This includes Early Park Admission—allowing you to breeze into the theme parks each morning an hour before park opening—as well as free shuttle transportation to and from all three incredible theme parks and Universal CityWalk.

And speaking of family – Surfside Inn and Suites & Dockside Inn and Suites will have plenty of space to accommodate the entire clan. More than half of the rooms across both hotels – 1,450 to be exact – will be 2 Bedroom Suites.

These suites will feature two separate bedrooms, a kitchenette and dining area, and a bathroom with a separate shower and vanity so the whole family can get #ReadyForUniversal. The 2 Bedroom Suites will sleep six for as little as $111 per night.

We can’t wait to check out Universal’s Endless Summer Resort, where the sun, surf, sand and water meet. Surfside Inn and Suites will be the first hotel at Universal’s Endless Summer Resort and will open in the summer of 2019. Its sister property, Dockside Inn and Suites, will open in 2020.
