    Great rooms and the staff is great! The only trouble is parking. Parking was extremely difficult. Fitness center was nice, though I didn't get a chance to use it. It had a nice, pool but it was too cold outside to swim and it's not heated. The beds were very comfortable and the tv was easy to navigate. Nice refrigerator... More

    This hotel worked perfectly for us for a quick overnight stay. Pretty standard with respect to everything - BUT when given the LOW price and the EXCELLENT buffet breakfast - this place rises above many similar hotels. Would happily stay here again.

    Great location, extremely friendly and helpful staff. In fact, I don't think I've ever stayed at a hotel with such consistently polite and caring staff. Perfect location if you are visiting Universal. Would definitely recommend.

    We prepaid our room but could not check in until 3:25 pm. We were not given the option of storing our luggage so we could go enjoy the Parks. Other guests got the option to store their luggage. The desk clerk at check in was very close to being rude. Prepaying one's room doesn't seem to carry any weight.

    We just returned from visiting Universal Orlando and the outlets around International Drive. We stay at Best Westerns frequently. This facility is very close to Universal and offers free shuttle service to the parks. The service runs twice in the morning and twice in the evening. Be sure to sign up for this shuttle as soon as possible as they... More

    Slightly above average Best Western however the beds we new and comfortable. There was a decent breakfast but as usual there was very limited seating. Close to Universal but not walking distance. There is a shuttle but with limited departure and return times. Close to several restaurants.

    Located close to Universal but walking distance is more of a hike. Hotel does offer a shuttle at 8am and 10am to the park with two returns in the even, but you need to sign up ahead of time. Nice rooms and good selection for complimentary breakfast. I would recommend and stay again.

    My family, (myself, 18 year old son and 8 year old daughter) had a couple days to kill in Florida before we took a cruise, so we decided to go to Universal for the 1st time. I was looking for budget friendly, so I was going between the Cabana Bay and Best Western. I ultimately chose the BW due to... More
