We recently stayed at the Avanti Resort for 14 nights and found it to be in a great location on I Drive. Good selection of restaurants, Walgreens nearby for essentials and easy access to the main road that gets you to Disney. Room was large and although basic was comfortable and had everything we needed, Flatscreen TV, Fridge, Bath, aircon and also a dehumidifier which meant that the room didn't smell damp or musty like some hotels can in Florida. The aircon and dehumidifier can be noisy but it didn't bother us as we are fairly sound sleepers and after a day at the parks there isn't much that would keep us awake. The laminate floors are a good idea but they could do with being cleaned more regularly or they could provide those disposable slippers as your feet can get quite dirty.
There is a resort fee of $9 a day which includes parking, good wifi in all areas even by the pool, a gym and a really large pool area.
The pool bar is good, the food is ok but there is so much choice nearby, Friendlys, Tony Romas, Hooters, TGIs, Millers ale house, Pizza Hut. Also Pointe Orlando and some more lively choices nearby as well.
We found the Avanti Resort to be ideal for us and would happily stay there in the future.
