"Good basic hotel"

It's an older hotel that's had some work done, although you can still tell it's age. The rooms aren't big or fancy. That being said, if you're looking for a convenient place by Universal that's not expensive, this is a good choice. There's restaurants within walking distance. The shuttle to Universal doesn't come very often, but it's also a cheap Uber ride.

Had several issues at this location and nobody answered phone to resolve any after calling several times. No remote...sheets has dried something on them so they weren’t washed. No water pressure and the ac smelled and rattled all night

The staff were very helpful and polite. The check in and check out process, was hassle free. The pool and hot tub area was very relaxing. The room service workers were always working to keep the place clean. Location of the hotel was nice. It was quiet. The only thing wrong to be honest was the hotel is a little out dated as far as style. Looks and feels old. But overall I recommend it to people. I’ll definitely come back again.

My husband and I recently spent 10 days at this hotel. The front desk staff are very friendly and helpful. This is an older building but well maintained. There is a restaurant, deli and bar on site for your convenience. They do not have free breakfast as most Best Western hotels do. The location makes it very easy to get around Orlando. You are on Universal Blvd and only about a block from International Dr. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Bedding is nice, they have in-room coffee and tea. Pool and surrounding area are clean.
