My husband and I stayed at this hotel for four nights in March and were very, very pleased with our stay. Everything was clean, pleasant and comfortable! We stayed in ORlando just once before - as broke college juniors, staying 35 minutes out in a motel. It was fine for college kids, but we wanted something more. Not Swolphin money...

Very nice hotel and clean, great location 15 minute walking distance from Universal Studios. The breakfast was good. I would not use their free bus system as it goes to other hotels. It took 45 mins to get to the Universal Park when it only took 15 minutes to walk.

We really enjoyed our stay here but found the restaurant terrible. The room was fantastic and all the staff couldn't be more helpful with anything we asked. Our room was clean and the views from our window was great. We didn't use the pool but did sit by the outside bar near the pool and it was very pleasant. Great...

I hate to be negative but it's hard not to be regarding this property. Dated facility. Air conditioner leaked into carpet resulting in WET SOX!!! $150+ best western should surely have a free breakfast, one would think, but they charged $10 for a lil buffet. I saw nearly everyone using breakfast vouchers so I asked the girl at the front...

Dear Dustin, We certainly apologize that you did not enjoy your stay during your recent trip to Orlando. We are a full service hotel and while we do offer "free" breakfast we do have bookable rooms that include breakfast in the rates. The vouchers you mentioned were most likely for that rooms type. I do appreciate that you enjoyed our...

Very nice hotel. I let them know it was our 20th anniversary and they make a nice heart display on our bed with towels, plus a card and goodies. Breakfast buffet was decent. Buy tickets day before and save 2$. Great hot tub/sun bathing and pool area.

Our room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. There was enough room for four adults to move around comfortably, and having two sinks (one outside the bathroom) was very helpful. The beds were really nice, and I slept well. The shuttle bus service to and from the Universal parks was VERY convenient and helpful! The price was fair and the...

Rearranged travel plans landed my girlfriend and I in Orlando a day early and unable to check-in to our pre-booked hotel. With many hotels in the area at capacity, we found the Best Western on Hotels Tonight. Honestly, we weren't expecting much, but were VERY pleasantly surprised! Upon entering the lobby, we loved the well appointed and modern 'tropical' vibe....

Poor quality breakfast for the price, most of BW hotels include breakfast in their price. Bad smell in room, we were told that it was the air freshner in air conditioner that were the cause, suggestion change for an other brand that smells better. For the rest it was fine very devoted staff.

This is a great place to stay on Business or Pleasure, walking distance to restaurants, water park, gator attraction, shopping. Has bus transportation to Universal. They also have tickets to all Parks in Orlando/Tampa. This hotel was redoing their restaurant/bar which will only make it better in our eyes. The only thing we found was inferior was their mattress in...
