Earlier this week Universal Orlando Resort announced the opening date for their eighth hotel, Universal’s Endless Summer Resort – Dockside Inn and Suites: March 17, 2020. This new hotel will be located on the former Wet 'n Wild land and will be joining sister property Universal’s Endless Summer Resort – Surfside Inn and Suites, which opened in June 2019. If you're thinking about checking out this new hotel next spring, here's everything you need to know:

1. A stay at this new hotel won't break the bank

Though Universal definitely has the premium hotel room market covered with locations like the Hard Rock Hotel and Lowe's Portofino Bay, the resort has recently had a lot of success with more value-oriented properties like the Cabana Bay Beach Resort and Aventura Hotel. And it looks like that trend will continue with Dockside Inn and Suites, which will also be in the affordable ‘value’ category, with rates starting at just $89 per night. 

2. There are currently two different room types for guests to choose from

Though this might change later, right now there are only two major types of room that will be available when the hotel opens next spring:

  • Standard room: Cool, calm and carefree, rooms here are remarkably charming and incredibly affordable. Sleep up to 4 adults in 2 queen beds. (Starting at $89 per night)
  • 2-Bedroom Suites: Families will feel like they’re at a beach retreat in these spacious, two-bedroom suites that sleep six. There is also a kitchenette area, a cool picnic table for meals and hanging out, and a bathroom with separate bath and vanity areas. (Starting at $136 per night)
Reservations for these two different room types are open now for dates next spring, and can be made here
