We called and booked this hotel 10minutes before we arrived and they had availability with what we were looking for. The appearance of this hotel was unlike any I have seen in a Best Western Plus. Very nice and wonderfully decorated. Staff was very helpful. Will stay here next time I am in the area, for sure.

A great pit stop for the evening. Booked over the phone to assure no issues and I did have a minimal issue, however it was resolved. The front desk had 2 very professional and sweet young ladies that were very helpful and had a great conversation about the local hot spots. It was clean and comfortable for the most part.... More

A clean place with nice staff. Stayed twice: after and before our Allegiant flights. I think it is great that they start a continental breakfast at 4:30am to cater to early morning flights (lots out of Sanford). Cannot say I like the pool out front by the busy road...no ambiance. But there is a nice sitting area out back (mainly... More

Getting in and out of Sanford Airport is not an easy task as they seem to want to charge you the high prices like the Orlando Airport but not the services. Best Western was the only one in the area to offer FREE shuttle with my 100$ room so my hand was forced. Staff were pleasant and professional but the... More

We got to the airport in less than 10 minutes. Easy drive. Good, clean room and good service. Internet was a bit slow. I do not like the 200 character minimum requirement for the review!

Was pleased to see this renovated hotel offer Stay and Fly. Advertised free parking when I made my reservation months ago. Discovered they make no reservations for parking and insisted the parking rate had never changed. Could have skipped the stay and parked in the just used the guarded airport lot because I was advised to park in the overflow... More

I apologize that you feel you were misled. We do offer free parking for those not leaving their cars here, as most airport hotels do. We charge for "park & fly", we charge $6.00 per day for guests that stay on either end of their trip. Over the holiday season we do have parking issues as our lot is not... More

Walking in I didn't expect much and was surprised. The room was clean, beds comfy, and room was great. Brerakfast was a bit better than most..eggs and saugage, bagels, cereal, yogurt, . If needing just a place for a night or two, I would recommend. Pool was small and didnt use as weather was poor.

To avoid spending holidays in the cold, I hopped in the car and toured around middle Florida. New Year Eve, I wanted to bring it in at CityWalk in Universal Studios, Orlando. After much searching and several bids that were not accepted with priceline.com, I choosed my Hotel Tonight app. This hotel showed up at $99. First Impression- I was... More

We stayed here because of an early morning flight from Sanfird Airport. The accommodations were average. The parking was a problem as all spaces were taken when we returned from dinner. We ended up parking along the building in what I would call a no parking area. But we were not alone as several cars were parked the same way.

Thank you for the comments. I apologize for the parking issue. We mistakenly overbooked our park and fly and had unexpected pickup in occupancy. More
