                7.0

                Location is very convenient for Universal Orlando Resort visit

                The local transfer service provided by Mears Transportation Group was terrible. At the last day of my trip I paid for a roundtrip transfer from hotel to Disney Resort. The shuttle didn't come on scheduled time on return. I called the company's call center for 4 times in 25 minutes, representatives couldn’t solve the problem I stayed on the line with my international cell phone on every call for 6-7 minutes. As I had an international flight in 3 hours I couldn’t wait more. I found a taxi at the resort side and went back to my hotel. Every Orlando visitor should be noticed about this transportation company’s poor performance.

              • Family with children
                7.4

                Free Shuttle for universal, swimming pool and jacuzzi.

                No good bar and shopping food service

              • Family with children
                10.0

                Central to our needs (from Australia).

              • Couple
                8.8

                Hotel is in good location, clean and comforable, staff are very helpful. I would recommend this hotel

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                The staff was really nice and was very understanding when we wanted to stay longer with our pet. The location was good for us since we mostly hung out on international drive. We really enjoyed our stay and will come again.

                The pool was not open 24 hrs and breakfast was not free but otherwise our stay was great

              • Older travelers
                5.4

                Good location for International Drive and Universal Studios. Room was a good size.

                Probably the worst Best Western we've stayed in - in urgent need of updating. Our room was large and clean but smelt musty - no fresh air had seen the room for years as you couldn't open the windows and needed redecoration. The bar was stuck in a time warp with outdated murals. A disappointing first experience of Orlando hotels.

              • Single
                7.8

                nice Hotel, Value for Money.

                Should have keep complimentry water Bottles and Need to have shutles for Air port and Shopping Places.Otheer thing they should avoiding using paper cups in rooms.

              • Family with children
                8.8

                Good parking space, swimmingpool very good

                The lock to enter the room was not working properly

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                It is very central and out of the traffic.

                Some facilities is old and need to be refurbished. Restaurant for instance.

              • Family with children
                8.8

                great location,very clean,nice staff

                the beds horrible to small and mattress to hard,horrible two sleeping nights

              • Couple
                9.2

                The location was great! Close to restaurants, 7Eleven and Universal Studios.

              • Single
                8.2

                Good wi-fi in rooms; v helpful desk staff

                Interior decoration rather shabby; catering overpriced

              • Family with children
                5.4

                The location was excellent, the car parking easy. The swimming pool was OK plus easy to hire free tennis equipment.

                The restaurant was a bit disappointing - the food quality was not too good, we had a small frozen pizza warmed up in the microwave - poss oven! We complained with our feet (the best way really)

              • Family with children
                7.8

                Helpful staff

                No food or other services before 7 AM

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                The hotel was comfortable, facilities were excellent and the price for the rooms were good too. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you wanted accommodations that was fantastic and reasonably priced.
