Reviewed November 24, 2013

Great place to stay for wanting to be close by any of the theme parks or convention center. Resorts pool deck and volleyball sand court is prepared every morning. Rooms are very clean and spacious. They do have a cafe that all kinds of snacks and foods are available which are at discounted price. Also around the resort are many different style of restaurant you could choose from.
The staff were very pleasant top it off.

I booked this hotel as a last minute getaway for my sons birthday. I found a great price on groupon. After reading the reviews, I feel like this hotel will be a great value based on the good reviews. I am especially excited not to stay someplace with carpet..it always bothers me to see my little ones with dingy feet from hotel carpet! I hope to return soon with a great review on this hotel!!

The room was simple and spotless. The staff at check in and check out was very pleasant. I needed a little later check out time, and they were pleased to give it to me. There was no electric outlet near the table where I needed to use my laptop. So I charged in on the night stand and then used it at the table. I'm glad I chose it. Room was very reasonable.

My stay at the Avanti Resort was great. Location was walking distance to a lot of wonderful restaurants. Only thing I was not pleased with was the bathroom was not spacious. I made reservations @ the last minute but when I arrived @ 9 pm was treated as if I had made reservations 1 month in advance. Thanks ro avanti resort this will be my first choice of stay when I arrive in orlando, fl.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review! We are thrilled that you felt so welcome at our resort and that you enjoyed our location right in the middle of International Drive. We do apologize that the bathroom was not as large as you would have liked it to be. However, we're glad to be considered your first choice in Orlando. Hope to see you again soon!

I had contacted the Avanti earlier in the day by phone to alert them that our check-in would be late, and was told it was no trouble; they would be awaiting our arrival. Ryan checked us in and was friendly and answered all our questions. He even gave us a room overlooking the pool, which although we did not make use of, seemed to be a great place to spend the day. I especially liked that it was open from 7am to 11pm. We're hoping to enjoy it the next time we're in Orlando on business or for pleasure. We loved the fact that there are no carpets in the rooms; people should realize just how unsanitary rugs are. I certainly appreciated it. Mark, the hotel's bell hop / door man (we called him the Mayor of I-Drive) was friendly, knowledgeable, and gave us great info on the many fantastic restaurants and bars in the area. If it wasn't for Mark, our time in Orlando would not have been half as fun. I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a clean, economically priced room in quite possibly the best location in Orlando for visitors. This place is worth double the price.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the pool were great. I would imagine that rooms facing the interstate would be...
