We booked this hotel because we got a good package deal with our flight. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. A little info...the pool is shaded by 5:00, the pool bar was unattended a lot of the time, there is only one girl working the bar/restaurant. She is the hostess, bartender, waitress and bus boy. Hopefully it is not... More

I stayed at this property in February 2015 for six days. At first impression the hotel lobby area is well decorated and clean. Check-in was smooth, the guest shop at the ground floor is good. The hallways were not very clean. My room had a dated appearance, the beds were clean, the carpet in the room was not very clean... More

Best Western Orlando Gateway is a good choice for location, value, and excellent staff. Close to Universal and Wet & Wild. Easy access to Interstate 4. Reasonable/easy access to/from MCO International Airport, Staff service was excellent, serving our needs promptly. Would likely stay here again on future trip to Orlando.

I was returning to Orlando for the first time in about 12 years. I used to own a house there so know the area well. It was part business part pleasure so I wanted a hotel convenient for everything and with good amenities. This hotel is in a great location for the parks and the shopping. The staff are very...

We stayed for a short period in May and have found a great spot for Universal and the surrounding area. Staff was more than amazing, extremely friendly and very helpful. Seriously, this might be the friendliest place I have ever stayed at. Rooms were clean, great pool area, they had new pool furniture arrive for the pool area while we... More

We really enjoyed ourselves at the Best Western. Rooms ere clean, pool area was great and the kids loved the basketball court. The location is perfect and the staff was very friendly and seemed to like what they do.

Very excellent hotel. I had an pleasurable stay at this Best Western. The room was very clean and the television was very nice. The bed was extremely comfortable. All in all my stay here was overall perfect. The only negative was that this hotel did not serve free breakfast.
