"One Heck of a Trip"

Without ranting all I can say is that I stayed at this location during a very trying time in my life. The staff at this hotel made what was no pleasure trip bearable. Everyone there is friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and the accommodations are exemplary. I will book this hotel any time I am in the Orlando area.

Excellent in every way. Staff super, room very adequate and quiet. Restaurant excellent. We were unable to get a reservation at our usual Best Western. What a great change this was--we will stay here again whenever we need a room in the area.

"Great property location"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 20, 2017 NEW
Hotel was in great proximity to Universal parks, and the shuttle was very helpful. It would have been helpful to know there were 3 other stops on the shuttle route prior to getting on it, though. The good news was Best Western was the first shuttle stop FROM the parks! Having a laundromat on-site was a wonderful amenity! Parking was great, with good access to the hotel from all aspects of the parking lot. The room was slightly dated, but overall the property is a good value and we enjoyed our stay there.

I enjoyed my stay. This hotel had everything I needed and exceeded my expectations. Staff, food, room, bed, location were all great. Free shuttle to Universal Studios is a nice perk. Everyone was very helpful and welcoming.

Great stay, great price, clean pool, hot tub, and friendly staff. Some things look like they are dated, but eh. Toilets sit to close to the water... Overall it is a nice place to stay for a nice price!
