Older hotel but it was clean, staff was friendly and nice pool. Great price and only a short drive to Universal/Isle of Adventure. Handle on shower was not working right and neither was frig., but not bad enough to report either. Highly recommend this hotel for those on a budget.

We were pleasantly surprised how nice the room was. It was also priced very well for what you get and how nice it is. Would definitely stay again! We had friends stay near by that paid twice as much for their room and ours was just as nice or nicer

Loved my overnight stay here and will definitely return. Located centrally in the Universal, International Drive and outlet mall areas, just off I-4 and Turnpike. Nice lobby area, free parking and gracious staff. My room was very clean, nice condition and quiet. Comfortable bed and good space. Looked out at night over Orlando Eye. So many restaurants, shopping and entertainment... More

We spend a lot of time at HHN at Universal, Orlando. This is our happy time! Our first choice for a place to stay is always the Best Western Orlando Gateway Hotel, Orlando. We always have a good experience and the staff are exceptional. Junior, at the front, is always a pleasure to see and visit with.

checked in, was supposed to stay 4 nights, but left after 1 due to noise and very scantilly clad women in the lobby also there was no breakfast included. disappointing! Took awhile to check in and out as I kept being asked to wait while they called cabs for other guests.

The staff at BW Orlando Gateway Hotel were exceptional employees. Everyone went out of their way to accommodate us. Our comfort and needs were met beyond our expectations, particularly because we got a room upgrade because of our BW platinum status! The on-site bar and restaurant had a great selection and was so easy after a busy day at Universal.... More

We have stayed many times at this hotel and have not had one bad experience from check-in to check-out ! The staff are all great. Rita is a stand out employee. We love walking in and seeing her at the front desk, with her wonderful smile. She genuinely loves her job and that shows in her appearance, attitude and knowledge... More
