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

Very nice, clean, and good service. The restaurant was okay, Snack bar was okay also. Pool was nice and the young man covering the snack bar by the pool was very nice. They had a problem with cold water in the faucet for the tub and sink. There was none which made showering impossible. Liked the location and the free... More

I was welcomed as soon as I entered the Hotel and felt like I am a celebrity. Clean and cozy rooms and staff are friendly. It was my first trip to Orlando and the Hotel staff were knowledgeable about all the attractions.

The hotel was very nice. The cleanliness was good. The cost was excellent. The proximity to Disneyland was very good. There was a nice shop to purchase snacks and some things you may have forgotten. The restaurant for breakfast was right there and the food was good.

The usual hotel I stay in was booked up but I was able to get a reservation with this Best Western. The check in staff was excellent and got me into my room quickly. The room was clean, included a microwave and refrigerator and had a great view of Wet-N-Wild and Universal. I didn't use the pool area but it... More

The building is a little older but the maintenance has been vigorus and you would not know it. The only disappointment is the Lounge/Restaurant, it's decor... More

Sales staff and front desk staff are outstanding and a delight with which to work! I only wish the quality and value of the room matched the personnel. If you can negotiate a good rate, this property might meet your business travel needs. I was able to fulfill the work goal for which I rented a room for only one... More
