I haven't been to this hotel in many years but I had great memories so I thought I would give it a try again. Great location. Next door to the Harley Davidson dealership. Front desk staff was great. Parking lot was packed. Conference going on. They upgraded my room at no charge. Lobby area is showing some wear and tear but rooms were nice and clean. Bed was very comfortable. TV's need to be upgraded. There is a sports bar connected to the hotel. Place was packed. Drove down the road to the next exit and got dinner. Will probably return.

Stopped unannounced late night during a last-minute trip to Orlando. Friendly staff, even at 1 am. Clean quiet rooms and pet friendly with a small upcharge. Decent breakfast and right off the interstate. Very happy iwth the stay.

We chose The Gateway Grand for it's location (the choices on Newberry road exit seemed sketchy). The property looks like Beverly Hills inside and out but it's a value price. We stayed the previous night at the Best Western Orlando airport--clean but bare, spare bones--no comparison for about the same price.

We were in town for a family wedding, and this place was chosen. We received a nice discount on a block of 16 rooms, and also booked the large banquet hall for the wedding reception.

The staff was great, the rooms were great, the complimentary breakfast was fantastic for all the families with different tastes.

The staff and kitchen did a perfect job on the wedding reception as well. Everything went without a hitch, and we could not have asked for a better hosting of our event.

We would highly recommend this Hotel as a place to host your event. We were very pleased.

I stayed at this establishment for a wedding weekend. The hotel grounds are immaculate. The lobby and breakfast area are large and welcoming. The pool area, although it was too chilly for our use, was larger than your usual Best Western or any other interstate hotel. My only complaint would be the beds. They were HORRIBLE!! The beds were so soft and flexible, I worried that I was going to bounce off as I turned over. Other family members arrived a night before I did and asked for rooms with better beds. The front desk told them all the beds were the same and they were thinking about getting new ones. Here's a news flash...JUST DO IT.
I must compliment the complimentary breakfast though. It was beyond the normal travel fare and for $2 you can even add a made to order omelette to your breakfast. My daughter had one made and she said it was the best one she had ever eaten. Not too shabby for a teen who usually doesn't even eat eggs.
Parking was a bit tight too, so don't expect to park an RV or to haul a trailer and park it here.
