Universal Orlando is taking the plunge and opening its newest on-site hotel, the Endless Summer Resort Dockside Inn and Suites, in December.

On Dec. 15, the doors will swing open at Dockside Inn and Suites, the second of Universal's "Value" hotels – along with Surfside Inn and Suites – with nightly rates starting at $79, and an increased emphasis on an economical vacation. All the better to lure in local staycationers, we'd guess.

Some of the offerings at this new Resort include:
  • Two-bedroom suites that sleep up to six for families
  • Exclusive theme park benefits, early park admission, etc.
  • The Pier 8 Market restaurant, with with most dishes under $12, offering "themed comfort foods" and "on-the-go options"
  • The Sunset Lounge lobby bar serving specialty cocktails
  • Two pools and two pool bars
