"DO NOT BOOK HERE - Cancelled My reservation without notification"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed September 21, 2017 NEW
I was completely shocked when I arrived to the hotel on Friday September 15th to find out the entire hotel was shut down due to the hurricane. No one notified me (even though they had all of my personal information on file) and the staff was not too helpful in helping me get a new hotel reservation elsewhere. This is unacceptable. I had to pay for a taxi to take me somewhere so that I could then go online and find a brand new hotel on the spot. The worst beginning to any trip. Luckily I'm a positive and smart person and I still had a great time in Orlando, but beware that this place should be shut down permanently. Don't say you were not warned.

"Insensitive to Hurricane Irma Evacuees! Don't book here!"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed September 13, 2017 NEW
The night before Irma took a turn and was headed for a direct hit to our area, and we all thought central Florida would be safe, we scrambled to make a reservation to get out of our home in Pasco County. I booked this hotel through Priceline, with a no-cancel policy. We were okay with that. However, when I booked it, the dates defaulted to Sept. 16th instead of Sept 9th. Since I was in a panic over losing my home, my pets and possibly our own lives, I didn't noticed that the system sneakily defaulted to a different date until AFTER it was booked. In a matter of seconds my husband called Priceline and they said they would refund us if the hotel approved it. The Priceline rep contacted this hotel and spoke to Elise. They came back and told us that they explaiined the situation, but Elise was not willing to negotiate and would not refund us for the 3 nights. When we called the hotel ourselves, no one ever answered the phone...for about an hour. We had to give up because we had to vacate our property due to evacuation orders. We ended up going to family in Lakeland, but we now have 3 nights at this hotel that we don't need next week because Priceline and this Best Western Orlando Gateway would not refund our money. If the Priceline system was not so sneaky, and if I wasn't in a complete panic and saw the date change, this wouldn't have happened. However, when businesses all over the state are being kind, donating supplies and helping citizens, you would think that this hotel could have understood and simply refunded us for these three nights. This is an example of horrible service. If you have horrible service before you even step foot into the hotel, imagine what you get once you're there? Shame on you, Best Western for takiing advantage of people when we are scared about losing everything.
