This was a great, clean hotel that offered several ammenities. We only stayed one night, but got to enjoy the pool. The room was clean, the beds were comfy, and we had many towels! The pool was in great shape. I would definitely stay here again, especially for the price we paid (Much better than other hotels) and within walking... More

I know I am not suppose to do this but I am personally going to give a shout out to "DIANA - Forte Myers" . We stayed at this hotel for about 8 - 10 days, but the very first day we got there it was far from what we saw when we booked online and I was almost about... More

The hotel seemed well managed and clean. It is located close to Wet n Wild and Universal Studios and about a 25 minute drive to Disney. Don't take the cabs outside the hotel. They did not have a meter and overcharged a lot. There is a nice pool with a very nice lounge area outside. The room was clean and... More

The Best Western Gateway was a very good value for the money and it had a great location with regards to Universal Studios Orlando and Wet and Wild. This Best Western is a part of Universals early admittance program which was our major draw to the hotel. Overall the service personal were friendly and accommodating. There were a few minor...

Loved this hotel. You get so much for the money. Very clean and extremely friendly staff! Thank you Anpavia! You were terrific. Pool and spas were very clean. Kids could play basketball too! Rooms were older but who cares, they were very clean. Gift and snack shop was open late. Would visit again and again!

Loved this hotel, went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. We also had 4 dogs between my son and myself and they too were made to feel welcome. Wonderful staff, friendly and helpful. We stay there again.

Stayed at the Best Western Orlando Gateway for 7 nights when on business/pleasure in Orlando. Rooms clean and reception staff ok. Bar, restaurant, shop are overpriced and understocked and close early. Breakfast was awful. Pool area was good. Location not great. Better hotels nearby.

We have stayed here twice in the past and have had a great stay every time. Request a poolside room if you plan on swimming, it"s worth the extra money, there's nothing like stepping out of your own doorwall and taking a dip to unwind after a day at one of the parks. The hotel is just down the road... More

The hotel location is great for visiting Universal Studios. Be aware this is an older hotel, there is no free breakfast included with room price and pets are allowed in first floor rooms (as we unfornately found out). Room comfort was average but expected more as price was double what we found advertised for other hotels on International Blvd.
