Special mention to Lisa G at the poolside bar & grille who makes the best cocktails ever as well as being very professional friendly & knowledgable at the same time. Rooms spotless and... More

My stay has been wonderful, and I fully expect it to continue to be that way. From the moment we arrived I have felt blown away by the level of service and exceptional staff. One staff member in particular, Ronnie from the Avanti Bar & GRILLE. He went above and beyond to ensure our stay was superb! Thank you to... More

This is a newly renovated resort in the heart of International Drive in Orlando Florida. Very comfortable with a fun pool area. But the best thing was the customer service from everyone that works there. Especially from Jimmy and Alexander both front desk clerks as well as a front desk manager Danny. Thanks Avanti staff.

I had lowered expectations. One does seem to equate quality and amenities with price, right? This kind of managed expectations keeps up from being disapointed at no stadium-style seating at the $2 theatre or leather seats in our hotwire-bid rental car. This was the case with Avanti. I figured it had to be a newer motel being on I-Drive, and... More

We loved our stay at the Avanti Hotel. We were so pleased with the location and service we decided to add 1 more day to our 4-day itinerary. It is conveniently located to many of the attractions and restaurants (walk-in distance--which was a total plus!!).

The Price is Right !!!! If your looking for five star this is not for you, but for the price the Avavti is a great place to stay, close to everything you need attractions,restaurant, shopping.The pool is amazing and a great place to relax,swim or just chill with a drink.

There was a great range of facilities at the motel style resort. The rooms were a generous size with 2 queen size beds (the ones we stayed in). The only minor downside of staying at the resort was that the gym was small and half the equipment was broken. The pool facilities were great, clean towels available for the beds... More
