Universal’s Endless Summer Resort – Dockside Inn and Suites Information: Rooms, Pools, Dining, and More

Universal’s newest hotel complex contains two Value resorts: the Surfside Inn and Suites, opened in June 2019; and the Dockside Inn and Suites, which was scheduled to open in March 2020. The actual opening date is still in the air, but should be summer 2020. Dockside Inn has 937 standard guest rooms and 1,113 2-bedroom suites. Standard rooms sleep four, while 2-bedroom suites sleep 6.

Dockside Inn is themed more to the boardwalk than the beachy Surfside. The color schemes are brown and yellow, with ocean blue accents. Sunsets over the ocean and pier-themed art hangs on the walls. The rooms’ wood-tone furniture is modular, and has plenty of storage. There's additional storage under each bed, and under-shelf hooks for handbags and backpacks.


Standard guest rooms are around 313 square feet and include vinyl “hardwood” floors, two queen beds, a chair, mini-fridge, coffeemaker, iron, and ironing board. The important thing to know is that about the size of a Disney Moderate resort, at Disney Value resort prices (about $100 to $145 per night cheaper than a Disney Moderate.) That’s a lot of money to save.

Two-bedroom suites are 440 square feet and include a kitchenette with picnic-style table and microwave, and one bathroom. “Two bedroom” is a misnomer, though: it’s one main room with two beds, and a separate bedroom with another. That’s about 65 to 80 square feet smaller – and one less bathroom – than Disney’s family suites. However, Universal’s suites are roughly $150 to $240 cheaper per night, which pays for a lot of park admission.
