“Great location and price!”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

We have stayed at the Avanti Resort twice over the last year. It is newly renovated, very clean, and located right in the middle of numerous restaurants and small attractions. We stayed here both times prior to going to Disney World. The location is close to Sea World and Disney World and is much cheaper than any other hotels we found. Be sure to ask for a discount! They have given us one both times! Will definitely use this hotel next time.

Stayed there in Feb for 2 nights - business trip. Did not want to spend too much as I was barely going to be there in the room. But when I got there it was a pretty decent place - nice big pool, poolside cafe with decent food choices, nice big size rooms and ok bathroom.
Location was the best - walk out to a busy street with lots of restaurants within a few blocks. Perfect for families with small budgets.

Just returned from two weeks stay at this hotel, the lobby and pool area exceeded my excpectations. Lobby area very modern with a fantastic coffee shop for early mornings, pool area was lovely with clean towels and food from the cafe was lovely also.

The only downside to this resort is the rooms, as per previous reviews the lighting is awful unless you open your blinds but with it being a motel this doesn't give you much privacy. Very difficult to see anything. Also the floors, I had to buy a pair of flip flops as my socks kept getting ruined from walking around on the floors. The last thing was the house keeping - I know with it being a motel you don't excpect much but with their being no drying space I thought we would have been given dry towels however after a shower I picked a towel of the rail and it was a damp one from the previous day.

Overall was a good hotel with a fantastic location but I think they need to look in to making their room cleaning better.

Stayed here for 2 weeks, end of April into May.
The hotel is in a great location, we ate somewhere different every night and were able to walk to these restaurants each day.
The pool area is large and clean with free towels and plenty of sunbeds.
We ate in the cafe once and the foot was good, as was the co ffee we had in reception.
We used the gym daily and for a hotel of this size I thought it was well equipped.
Recetion is very modern and staff friendly and helpful.
The room was large with 1 double beds. Beds were comfy, the shower nice and powerful. We also used the iron, fridge and coffee machine.
The only negatives with this hotel were in the room. It was quite dark, even with all lights on, not east to find sonething in your case or put make up on. Unless you ask, the only housekeeping done is changing towels and emptying the bin. Floors are supposed to be swept daily but are not. Ttake something to wear on your feet in the room or else you will end up filthy on your soles. The toilet blocked up a couple of times but this was soon sorted out. We overlooked the i4 but it didng affect us getting to sleep.
A very nice hotel, just a few minor issues to make it a 5

Stayed here with a friend in April & we both loved it! We wanted somewhere central as we didn't want to hire a car. The Avanti was ideal - situated on International Drive almost opposite the Trolley Bus & Lynx bus stops, Tony Romas virtually next door & Bahama Breeze, Howl at the Moon & Senior Frogs opposite. The staff were so friendly & helpful, we had a leak come through our bathroom ceiling on our second night & were immediately moved & upgraded to a poolside room with a Jacuzzi for the rest of our stay. The place is spotlessly clean, even the reception & pool washrooms. The pool area itself is fab with a hot tub and a man made beach area with sand! - always a great atmosphere there. Will definitely go back!

Myself and my husband stayed in the Avanti Resort for a few days before going on a cruise, The hotel is spotless, rooms very big with air con, cleaned daily. There can be a bit of traffic noise depending where your room is situated but it did not keep us awake. The pool area is fantactis very clean also with towels provided. The cafe and bar excellent there is also a gym. Staff very frieldly and helpful you can get all your tickets for attractions and i-ride in reception. Loved this hotel will certainly stay in this hotel the next time I am in Orlando.

Room Tip: Rrooms facing the pool are quiter away from the road.
