“Great Experience”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Had a great time staying at Avanti for 6 nights with my boyfriend. Only complaint was the noise level from highway. I had read several reviews suggesting a pool facing room to help with noise, we had a pool facing room but it was still pretty noisy. We got use to this after a night or two. Overall, great stay. Awesome pool and bar, barista in lobby very handy. Great location on I drive.

Our expectations were high on this hotel after reading so many positive reviews, and although it didn't meet up to our expectations it wasn't terrible either. First off we arrived at about 1am and Eric at the front desk was so nice and welcoming. He explained all the necessary details for our stay as well as a quick glance at the hotel map.

The Negatives:
- Humidifier below the sink was way to noisy
- Definitely needs more lighting as well as a full length mirror
- Housekeeping didn't clean our room for some days during our stay
- Bed sheets need upgrade
- Food at the restaurant was not tasteful
- Concierge was not helpful


Positive Note:
-Starbucks on site!!
- Location, Location, Location!!
- Pool/Bar by Pool
- Huge amount of Parking
- Plenty of space in the room & no carpet
- Front Desk very helpful
-Shuttle to theme parks
-Good size TV

Overall our stay was pleasant for the few hours we spent there, I think its definitely one of those hotels you just go to sleep in. Its very good for its price!

I stayed during the premiere orlando hair show. I am a female age 36, and I was traveling alone. I never felt uncomfortable. The location is convienent to everything. I would walk around to shops and restaurants, day and night, alone. The staff were all so helpful from giving advice, information, and transportation when needed. The pool area and tiki bar was very relaxing and clean. I would definitely bring my family back here to stay and suggest this hotel to others!

This is a great place to stay in the international drive. 5 minutes to Universal, 20 to Disney. The pool is huge, and everything is perfectly clean. The staff in the front desk is nice and and friendly. I recommend you stay here! Also, it´s not expensive at all!

We booked the Avanti resort after A LOT of searching on MULTIPLE websites. It seemed like a really good deal compared to comparably priced hotels with good reviews. It didn't disappoint.
Its a large resort in a good location- with easy access to the highway for visiting theme parks and attractions near and far.
The staff at the front desk were efficient and helpful at check in and very apologetic for the ongoing building works (which they needn't have been as these were not at all disruptive). The room was on the 2nd floor on the outer side of the building, no view and quiet dark with very little external light, but had two comfortable beds, very clean and a fridge/coffee maker/large TV and good aircon.
The pool area is fantastic with lots of space, seating and kept very clean. The bar and shop/cafe at the pool side were perfect for drinks and snacks and the pool side beach volleyball court was an amusing alternative activity during a morning by the pool.
We used the shuttle service to universal which was efficient and a great resource- saving the $17 car parking fee! The only down side was the timings back to the resort- the last bus being at 8.10- fine if youve lots of days at the parks but if youre a die hard theme park enthusiast a bit to early with the park being open until 9. Likewise we didnt use the disney shuttle purely for the timing back- with disney being open until midnight the shuttles home were too early for us to maximise our limited time in the parks. That being said- they were a really useful resource and saved us money on a couple of occassions and there would always be the alternative of getting a taxi home if you wanted.

There are lots of restaurants and shops near by within walking distance and a friendly's across the car park offered ice cream relief from the warm weather.

The front desk were really helpful and quick at helping with any problems, the room was cleaned daily and the beds were actually really comfy.

A fantastically priced hotel, close to universal, a great base for theme park based holidays with a pool to tempt you to have quite morning enjoying the sunshine!

Room Tip: block one faces international drive and block 3 the highway so ask for a 'pool view' to be i...
