While this hotel is not located directly on I-Drive, it's a short 5 minute walk up to the northern end of I-Drive and a very short drive to Universal Studios. Overall the hotel was clean, the staff was friendly, there is a pool/cafe/restaurant, all on-site (we didn't utilize any of these since our trip was short), but we will definitely... More

Great location for Universal Studios and friendly staff. Wi-Fi was unreliable. Shuttle bus driver was great. Universal employees at kiosk were "salesmen".Disappointed that the only breakfast available was $7.95. Had problem with the curtains falling down and had to switch rooms around 11pm, without any employee assistance/

It was our second time here. We liked the location the first time we stayed here and thought it was a good idea to try it again. I hadn't remembered that there was free wi-fi which was a real bonus, also the pool was a decent size. I enjoyed our stay here and would happily stay here again.

My family and I came here. Rooms were very spacious, clean and just great. The staff went above and beyond and helped us with everything we needed. Breakfast was great, got my wake up call, and enjoyed the housekeeping staff as well. That you! I will be back!!

This hotel is awesome! The front desk was very pleasant and everyone working there met you in the hallway with a smile and a greeting. I've never had that experience at an Orlando hotel before. The pool/hottubs are to die for, very well maintained and lots of chairs to relax in. We used the shuttle to Universal and that was... More

I have stayed at this hotel the last two years I've gone to Orlando and I love it here. The hotel is cheap ( roughly $70 a night ). The rooms aren't anything special but I'm only in my room to sleep. The great part about this hotel is the amenities. There is an outdoor pool, 2 outdoor hot tubs,... More

We knew when making reservations that our hotel stay would not include a complimentary breakfast, but in the morning when I headed down to the lobby looking for some fresh made coffee, I (and several other guests) were told that we had to pay for the coffee, or make coffee that was available in the room...seriously? When we made our... More

The arrival was great, the staff was unbelievably awesome and so well mannered, the rooms where beyond words. The view from our room was fabulous. Awesome place to stay and to return to. I will do it again soon. No wonder we are Diamond Members with Bestwestern, they are great folks to lodge with
