“Excellent location”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Hotel very well located, close to International Drive and possibility to go walking for the Universal Studios. Rooms with carpet, wide and modern. Kind and helpful reception. Available transfer for the main attractions.

Room Tip: Prefer the rooms far away from the reception and of the exit routes, better in the second floor.

Always a pleasure to stay here. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms good sized and clean. Bathroom vanity ample enough for two to get ready at once. Hot breakfast buffet included and very good. Located within walking distance to Universal's Islands of Adventure, Studios and City Walk.

Arrived here from Ireland and have to say it is a good hotel to stay in. spent most of the days out of the hotel anyway but it is good to finish the day off with. breakfast is great there is so much to choose. there is a separate guest services run by a guy called David. extremely helpful person: he organised our shuttles to disney which i used multiple times for other trips plus helping with other areas of interest. another reviewer complained about how far it is from universal which is untrue. you can walk to it in about 10 mins or avail of the free shuttle from the hotel which serves this hotel only. he will also go to seaworld and wet n wild. really the only negative was the elevator. there is only 1 and when its busy it can be a bit slow. otherwise pleased with this stay

Our family stayed in 3 rooms for one night pre-cruise. Even though our cruise departed from Port Everglades (3.5 hrs. drive) near Ft. Lauderdale we choose to stay in Orlando because of the selection of Best Westerns and the convenience and selections of restaurants and things are cheaper in Orlando. We chose this property because of price, complimentary breakfast, reviews and convenience. However, I won't do this again unless we plan to stay at least 2 days pre-cruise next time.

I usually stay a BW PLus hotels. This is less plus than expected. The rooms are small and the rooms are not like some of the site photos advertise. Updating hall exterior is needed. 2.5 star. Price was fair.

The hotel was easy to find even though it was surrounded by 3 other Hotels. It's right in back of The Ale House. Staff was friendly and room was clean. The Hotel offered a Free Breakfast which was very nice. Lots of items to choose from. The pool area was disappointing as we were going to use it after sun down but there was no lighting around it.

We had a pleasant time at Best Western Universal Inn. The amenities were great with free wifi, free continental breakfast, and free parking. Room was clean. The breakfast had eggs, sausages, make your own Belgium waffles, cereal, muffins, and fresh fruit. The seating area for the breakfast was a bit cramped though. It is recommended that you get there early so you get your choice of breakfast items.

Regardless, the Best Western is about 1 mile away from the Universal City Walk. You could catch the complimentary shuttle, but it is faster to walk. You'll be at the City Walk within 15 to 20 minutes. We asked for directions at the attraction desk and the customer service person drew on a map on how to get to the City Walk from the hotel.
