Upgraded to a sweet a few days before arrival. Room looked ok but had a very unpleasant smell that hit you as soon as you walked in the room. The bathroom layout was really tight. Nice large area with sink and mirror but the toilet and shower are in a separate room and to use it you have to step...

Good optional breakfast at reasonable cost. Would recommend breakfast option. Hotel was overall nicely kept. Some deep cleaning on elevators and other public areas could be addressed. Bed was very comfortable and slept well. AC unit was hard to regulate for temp. Had two issues with room but will not comment on those here.

Purchased Universal Package through Universal website and this hotel was an offsite hotel for the theme parks. Very nice stay and loved having the use of a shuttle to the parks each day. Would highly recommend this hotel.

The staff here is over the top with their helpfulness. I loved staying here and it is a great deal for the money, and very convenient to most everything to do in Orlando. I was staying for business and I found it very comfortable, safe, and everything well in order. The shuttle service was extremely nice as well.

This was our first experience staying with Best Western, and our first experience at Universal Studios. Let me say, we aren't luxury travelers... we appreciate a nice clean room, friendly staff, and hot breakfast, whether it's at the Hilton or the Holiday Inn. When we booked the package through a Universal Travel agent, I checked out the hotel listing on...

Dear Jennifer, I certainly apologize for the confusion you had with your reservation that you booked through Universal Studios. Universal Studios actually provides us with our transportation and I am surprised to find that you were not notified of the bussing schedule that they provide to the hotel. We are a full service hotel with a restaurant and lounge thus...

First, I would like to say that the customer service at the front desk was top notch (very helpful, accommodating, friendly and expedient. The location is nice and away from traffic and the chaos of international drive but close enough to easily access the nearby attractions. The room was very clean and spacious and the bed very comfortable. Will definitely...

The property was great good service, very clean , had no problems. Front desk clerk Diana was awesome... I call on our way there and asked for a up grade. She took care of it all giving us the honeymoon suit at no extra charge with a care package full of goodies.
