“Best Western Universal”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

Overall we enjoyed our stay at Best Western Universal. The staff was pleasant and professional and the Hotel was very clean. However, the sound quality of our room was not the best. We could clearly hear other guests through the walls and the air conditioner in our room was extremely loud. Other than that we have no complaints.

Stayed 3 nights in April in a king room.

Very comfortable, clean room - quick efficient checkin to our room, even though it was 9am.

Excellent hot breakfast included each morning.

Convenient shops and restaurants close by.

Shuttle coming and going to Universal twice per day - only about a 15 minute walk others.

Will stay again.

The room was clean & comfortable and staff was friendly & helpful & have no control over the pricing. However, I originally planned to stay 1 night, Thursday at a reasonable rate. When I wanted to stay Wed & Fri for some unknown reason I had to pay 1.5 times the rate for Wed & almost twice as much for Fri. I elected not to stay Friday My point is if the room is available, why charge more?

Hotel was clean, modern, and staff always helpful. A short walk to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure or you could take a free shuttle. Breakfast Buffet has both hot and cold items. If there was one bad thing to say it is that there was only one washer and dryer available for guest use.

Had to make a last minute stopover in Orlando. I had spent too much time walking around the Outlet Mall on International Drive so I was too tired to head out of town. I did a web search on area hotels and this nearby hotel came up at a very reasonable price, which included a full breakfast. I didn't book online but called the hotel directly to make the reservation and they were able to offer an even lower rate.

The hotel is located behind a small shopping complex that had a Walgreens, Alehouse and some other stores and restaurants. There is ample parking. Check in was a smooth and quick process. I got a room on the 2nd floor overlooking the parking lot but that was fine for overnight and there was no issue with outside noise. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable with an over abundance of pillows.

They had sufficient choices for breakfast. I opted for strawberry waffles (I made it in the waffle machine) with sausage and eggs. If you are having waffles, pour the batter, then gather the rest of your breakfast items and make your coffee. Your waffle will be ready by then. The eggs were a bit soggy, but that could be because it came out of a box. They also had oatmeal, toast, biscuits and such. The breakfast area is small so I recommend going early to get a seat or you may have to take it to the room.

Overall I was happy with the location, accomodation and service, so I will definitely return when next I'm in town.

Large comfortable beds and clean rooms impress, but the free complementary breakfast clinched it for me. Friendly helpful staff.
Starbucks around the corner and supermarket on the corner also convenient.
Having payed around $40 a night more to stay in another local hotel that was not really as nice I would stay here again.
Free WiFi helpful to check in online & print return boarding passes for US airways return flights to UK =excellent.

This place is located very close to Universal Studios. You can sign up to ride a bus but we chose to drive. The rooms were clean and the bed comfortable. The breakfast consisted of all the usual plus eggs, biscuits, sausage, and waffles. The area was clean and the coffee extremely hot. The drain in our tub did not hold water but they made a not to fix it. Would definitely stay again.
