      Nice place to stay, but extremely congested near and around the hotel”
      If you need to stay at a budget hotel that's clean and safe, you can't beat this Best Western! However, there were some drawbacks, including all of the construction and traffic around the hotel. The other drawback was that this particular hotel needs a lot of updating, especially when it comes to the creaky elevators and bathrooms. However, the housekeeping ladies were extremely professional and did a great job taking care of their hotel guests.

      Due to bad weather my flight was cancelled and managed to find a room online. I have to say that staff were pleasant and helpful. Bed is very comfortable. Room size was good. It was clean. my only comment is that it is old and you can notice it. For £70 the hotel exceeded my expectations.

      simple and clean hotel, with convenience store at the lobby with almost everything you need. i like that the hotel has a laundry room, so i can get my laundry done. breakfast can be add on at 7.95/pax, but pretty simple pancakes, waffles, cereals, and the usual eggs and sausage, nothing to complain or rave about... room has microwave which was good for reheating up leftovers, room service meals were nice, had them 2 night straight... only flaw was that the hotel was quite old, and the rooms had the smell of sawdust that you put in hamster cages, no matter how much perfume i sprayed, the smell just doesnt go away. otherwise, staff was friendly..

      Awesome location but horrible experience :(”
      So this hotel is conveniently located right outside Universal Studios florida, however the hotel is in desperate need of a good renovation. I had my water shut off TWICE during my 4 day stay and the hotel management didn't even bother informing their guests. What's more infuriating is the attitude I received when I called to see what was happening. Their solution at 11pm was to check out and get another hotel on my own! Ridiculous! Don't waste your time and or money!

      Overcharge ”
      I prepaid a fair amount of money to stay at the hotel and surprisingly at my check out the hotel came up with an additional charge of 8 dollars fee for Parking and Wifi. The fact of having to pay the additional fee was frustrating by itself, but it is even more frustrating because I didn't use parking and wifi service wasn't working. Anyways I learned with my mistake. Not making business with them anymore

      Excellent staff, facilities hotel right on Universal Blvd.”
      The hotel is very near Universal Orlando. It had free shuttle to the theme parks already from early in the morning (7.30 if I remember right , on time for park opening at 9am). They also offered other time schedules to and from the parks. . Other hotels in the area offered free shuttles but we found out they were always only one scheduled shuttle to the park at 11 am and pick up from park at 6 pm (park closes 9 or 10pm) which were not practical. Checking in was easy with friendly helpful staff. Checking out was fast. We only had to leave our keys in the room after receiving the invoice the night before.Parking is free around the hotel, where almost always you'll find a nearby doorway in to the hotel. The well maintained pool with lounge, 2 jacussis , hammocks, free pool towels and fitness center all added to a refreshing holiday. Breakfast buffet (with fee ) had both cold and warm food (omelets ordered from cook), beverages, sweets, fruits, cereals, yogurt, etc. Our room was always properly cleaned and had ample toiletries, microfridge and coffee maker.Truly an excellent hotel.

      Great Experience!”
      I read a lot of reviews prior to booking and unconsciously watched out for everything I had read about when I was there. I read the lobby had a distinct smell or elevator buttons weren't working, so I would look out for these things. Our stay was great! Lobby actually smelled great and elevator buttons were definitely functioning :) Water in the lobby and side entrance in case you park a bit far. Room was great and comfy. Plenty of towels and when I requested more soap and called that the tv wouldn't turn on, it took no more than 5 minutes for someone to come up with the soap and get the tv going (someone seemed not plugged in all the way). Refrigerator, microwave, cold AC, clean bathroom, we had two sinks. Great price and just great experience. Very comfy beds and pillows too!

      Pros 1) clean sheets n towels 2) great pool 3) sense of safety Cons 1) staff could have been more friendly with a smile instead of rushing everything at the check in and check in. Didn't get the sense of welcome. 2) poor sound proofing - you can pretty much hear what others are talking about next door and at the hallway. The hotel might want to supply free ear plugs.

      We stayed for 4 nights here and it was okay. It's so near to the iride trolley ( like a bus ) station where you can get anywhere. Less than 5 mins going to Universal and maybe 15 mins. Going to Disney. The hotel smelled and look so clean. I just had some comment with their elevator, you can tell that it's old, needs to get fixed. But over all it was a good stay.

      We loved the helpfulness of Rita and Tony who went out of their way to make things good for us. The rooms were serviced every night and a little cool haven after the heat of the day visiting the theme parks. There was a pool and other facilities but we did not spend time using these. The free wi-fi and ice dispenser on each floor was a welcome addition for the family. Our holiday was great and the family enjoyed themselves thoroughly.

      Hotel lobby is spacious and comfortable when we are waiting for check-in with our huge luggages. Staff is helpful and nice in the concierge. We left our luggages after checking out for our city sightseeing. The swimming pool is relatively big, clean and clear. The overall outlook of the hotel is old and it is necessary to renew the elevators.

      The hotel is in a great location. We walked across the street to wet n wild every day which was very convenient. It is also less than five minutes from Universal driving. The staff was friendly and helpful. For the price we paid it was a good deal. Clean rooms and the kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub.
