4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Average hotel with excellent customer service. Arrived 4 hours earlier than check in time and was able to check in early. Room was adequate for price but a little cramped. Pillows are smaller than standard size so bring your own if possible. Room was damp/musty but Damp-Rid took care of it. Parking is extremely limited. Breakfast was nice but juice... More

If you want a comfortable room that is clean to just sleep and visit the parks then this is the hotel for you. Renovations are currently taking place in some areas of the hotel. The first impression of the hotel lets it down, together with the dreary colour scheme and carpet (which needs a steam clean and good hovering). It... More

Very nice hotel, especially for the price. Comfortable, interior corridor room, which is important in humid Florida. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. This was my first time and I just stayed one night for my birthday with my daughter. I hope to stay again next year and enjoy more of the amenities.

Very friendly staff and a really helpful concierge. Check in was quick and easy. Just a 5 minute walk to International Drive and a 8-10 minute walk to Universal and Islands of Adventure. This was approximately $8 in a taxi. Rooms were large and clean. The adjoining restaurant served great breakfast for $10; an eat all you like style serving... More

You get more than what you pay for here. Our room was very nice and spacious and the facilities were clean and updated. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. You can't beat the location either. Universal Studios and Seaworld is just a few miles down the road and International Drive is only a mile away. Booking.com... More

We stayed here 10 days in July to visit Disneyworld and Universal Studios. Overall, we were very pleased with the hotel: clean rooms, an in-room safe, big swimming pool with towels provided (and even a pool bar), okay breakfast with hot (and some healthy) options, friendly staff and a superb connection to Universal Studios with a free shuttle bus.

I stayed at this hotel for one night and really enjoyed my stay. My room was clean and comfortable, the location is very convenient and the free wifi and parking were a plus. As for the reason I didn't give this hotel a perfect score - the woman at the front desk who was rude to me upon check in.... More

Best Western is one of our go to hotel chains when we travel and are usually very satisfied. Our three night stay here was ok and in our opinion the location is a strong selling point. You are very close to the Universal theme parks and across the street from Wet n Wild. The front desk staff are also very... More
