“Having a blast in Orlando!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Just had another fantastic stay in Orlando at the Avanti Resort and couldn't have been more happy. Such an awesome deal on great rooms right in the heart of all the action. My wife and I have stayed here a couple of times and will surely return on our next visit to Mickey Mouse Land. The rooms are always super clean and the staff feels like family. We love the heated pool and the cute little pool bar nestled in perfectly. Our bartender on our most recent visit (Lisa) could be the friendliest person we met the entire trip. She advised us on new things to try in the area, and also what to avoid without any of the pretentiousness normally encountered in the "tourist" area of Orlando. It's nice to have an oasis like this resort available to International travelers like ourselves, who could otherwise easily fall victim to the plethora of luring tourist "traps" on the strip. Cheers!

Everything was very nice, but it was difficult to get housekeeping to take care of the room. We came in once to find all of the sofa cushions piled up in the middle of the room. We hadn't used the sofa so have no idea what was going on there. Once we were home, Avanti's housekeeping supervisor contacted us to let us know that these matters were being taken very seriously. We appreciated the call.

Stayed on a week visit to the Disney parks. Overall it was a relaxing resort with good amenities (pool, hot tub, cafe, bar, shuttles to various attractions). The location is very nice along International Drive with access to many restaurants and attractions well within walking distance. The staff was friendly and it was a good part of our trip.

We ended up here on a groupon. Price was good and pictures looked great. It is a newely renovated Best Western. The rooms and buildings look old and dated but they did a decent job with room renovation. Clean, new and modern look. The main reception is very nice. For the price and location, it was a good fit but not quite as advertised. We would stay here again. Pool was nice.

nice size rooms, although very dark rooms with lvery low ligh ( I would love to know why hotels do not have chandeliers on the ceiling). Poor security, anyone can enter the hotel and reach any room without beeing stopped at reception or a gate. Staff very friendly.

Room Tip: not facing streets are quiet and have a better view
