“great location and hotel for universal”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

This hotel is so close to universal we did not wait for the shuttle to take us back, we just walked. The rooms are clean and well kept, with microwaves and a fridge. There is also a starbucks, walgreens and great pub/restaurant right across the parking lot! We would definetly stay here again. Breakfast was also good, few hot selections, fresh waffles, yogurt and whole fruits.

In all the hustle around the Disney attractions as well as the rest of the city we found this hotel to be a blessing. ie. clean, good location, great staff and excellent breakfast. Thanks to all who are responsible.

Room Tip: Beds were the best we had during our trip.

Decided on this hotel for a recent stay in Orlando.
The good points - clean, reasonable price, very handy for Universal Studios (15 min walk), cheap guest laundry, computer room with printers, free shuttle to Seaworld and Universal, free coffee available all day.
Not so good points - hotel in need of refurbishment/updating, more space for breakfast, better internet access.
At the end of the day you get what you pay for - the hotel could do with being updated - shower and bathroom fittings clearly past their best but beds were comfortable and large TV.
Very difficult to log in to free wifi, hotel uses several different routers and no sooner logged in than lost signal. Grateful that they had a room with 2 computers for guest use so able to use these.
Breakfast was very chaotic with too many people for the space available. Choice of cereals, hot food (usually scrambled egg, sausages and french toast or pancakes) Fruit juice was watered down and coffee very strong. Bread, bagels, muffins and fresh fruit.
Small gym and unheated outdoor pool.

Room Tip: Upper floor

THe hotel is convent to Sea World and Universal Studio. Clean and well kept up. While the food offerings for breakfast were good, the eating area was small and cramped. The free wi-fi often was slow and many times it was hard to log on with our ipads. All in all this hotel was a good value for the money.

Staff is friendly and room is comfy and big enough. Location is good as well. Only 3minutes drive to Universal studio and lots of restaurant around. There is discounted gift store nearby. Free shuttle bus services are available to Universal studio, Sea world and Disney world but limited seats.

Very close to Universal ...15 - 20 min walk . Also free shuttle that leaves twice in AM & returns twice in pm . You need to sign up at front desk . For the price we paid was very good value . The hot breakfast is just OK . Outside pool was much to cool to use for our trip .

We booked this Hotel through Hot wire mystery pick.....
I have stayed at Best Western before, but this hotel is a little below the other 3 Stars - needs improvements. The staff at reception was able and willing, but the cleanliness in the rooms were not up to par - from hair and make-up stains on the bed to stains on the comforter, it was not what I expected.
Breakfast was bland and very limited not worth the money. Overall disappointing.
