Visiting Orlando? Escape to the perfect sunset retreat with the best coastal vibe found inland at Universal’s Endless Summer Resort Dockside Inn and Suites.
Thank you for hosting our stay Universal Orlando Hotels. All opinions are my own.
You will feel like you escaped to the perfect sunset with the cool and calm feeling of a beach retreat. It is the perfect place for families of any size with their spacious two-bedroom suites in addition to their standard rooms.
I know that I said Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort was the best place for large families. While I do still love Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, Universal’s Endless Summer Resort Dockside Inn and Suites took over the top spot for me.
Universal’s Endless Summer Resort Dockside Inn and Suites is the ideal place to stay during your Universal Orlando Resort vacation.

Universal’s Endless Summer Resort is only 15 miles from Orlando International Airport and 10 miles from downtown Orlando.
It was the perfect place for our family of six to stay to celebrate our oldest daughter’s birthday for a staycation.
We loved the space in the two-bedroom suite as well as the Universal Orlando Resort hotel guest benefits!
