“Great stay”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

This resort was a great place to spend a couple of days of recreation. I would like to have had a place to get an early cup of coffee while getting ready for breakfast, as I do not like Starbucks. The pool area was wonderful and our room was clean and I appreciated the wood floors verses carpet as it seems cleaner. It was easy excess off International Dr. which made it easy to find. We had gotten two rooms for our visiting family and their room was clean also. Everything was in working order.

Carol, thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We are happy to report that we've now installed coffee makers in all of the rooms! Our guests can enjoy their cup of coffee at any time of the day they'd like to. Thank you for appreciating the flooring that we've put in the rooms. You are absolutely right that it is more resistant to allergens and bacteria. We hope that you will choose Avanti when you return to Orlando.

I have stayed in this hotel on 4 occasions, once as the best western, twice as the econolodge and once in its present form the avanti, I can say that the avanti is the best it has been , the location ( which obviously hasn't changed ) is brilliant , the staff are great and the rooms good. The pool however is fantastic , it has a great bar and grill and a fitness room for those inclined. There are restaurants and pubs within walking distance all of which are good . I cannot fault it , forget the reviews about squeaky beds , they do a little but really nothing to lose sleep about. The rooms have fridges now and coffee makers. I loved the place and will definitely recommend it .

I picked this place because it was cheap and close to Universal. I was greeted by helpful staff and had a really good room. They gave me earplugs for the traffic but it didn't bother me. There were also plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance. I would definitely stay there again.

This place is anything but a resort. The pool is nice. The lobby looked promising. The frozen drinks were ok. The room was horrible. The cover for the foot of the bed was dirty. The bathroom was mildewed and dirty. It had hair everywhere. The worst part was when we realized it hadn't been cleaned from the last people!! It had their shaved hair on the shower curtain and shower walls. It was so gross! We asked for it to be cleaned, and it never was. The towels were dirty most of the time. They had hair and dirt on them. One of the bottles of conditioner left for us was already used. Overall, we felt so dirty the whole time we stayed here. Even he kids noticed how dirty the place was. We all wore our shoes inside, because the floors were dirty as well. Can only imagine how bad it would be with carpet. One day our bags were riffled through as well. Very shocking for a so called resort. This was a very loud room too. You could here people at the pool and as they went to their rooms. Definitely bring ear plugs.

The Avanti has the feel of an older hotel that was renovated. Rooms were cleaned pretty good. The only issue we had was the AC made a loud squeal every time the compressor turned off. The resort does charge a $8.00 fee that includes shuttle to parks,wifi, and parking. I did make the desk aware of the ac issue when checking out and was compensated for the annoyance. Really nice pool area that we did enjoy. Great location for walking to many great eating establishments. Would be great if a continental breakfast was included.

We stayed at the Avanti two weeks ago and it was wonderful. I remember how good it smelled upon entering the room. There are no carpets in the rooms which keeps out any,bad smells bacteria, and bugs that can hide in carpet. The room was immaculate, we were given fresh linens every day, & it was also a good sized room. This hotel was also very reasonably priced and it was surprizingly quiet.
