Good price, clean rooms. Buy the $8 breakfast buffet when you check in.It' s standard basic food (hot and cold), but good if your heading to the theme parks and using the shuttle. They don't charge for parking.

The Best Western Gateway was clean and the staff was very friendly and accommodating but the hotel needs an upgrade. Something bathroom fixtures needed fixing, they were not in perfect working order and needed fixing.

Great accommodations. Comfortable bed, quiet room close to restaurants. Had to pay for buffet breakfast but was worth the price. Pool and spa accommodations were clean and up to date. Had a choice of 100 degree or 104 degree outdoor hot tub by the pool Universal Studios just 1.5 miles down the road from hotel.

I am a member of Best Western and I stayed here because I have trusted the brand globally. It didn't disappoint. A little old, you get a little smell here and there of something dump or old. But I have to say they have kept it very well and it's affordable. I was a little surprised I had to pay...

The mattress and linens were very comfortable. I was out like a light. Not sure if this is because of the miles walked at the theme park or the actual...

This was a good cheap average hotel that is nice and close to universal studios. They are pretty heavy on the timeshare pitches but easily avoidable if your not interested. There is no breakfast but there's an inside restaurant with a breakfast for 10$ but there's also a Dennys a couple of blocks away that gives you a better meal...
