this was our last night in Florida and the Best Western made it very restful and relaxing. We had a lovely swim in the pool, and a great breakfast in the morning to get us off to a great start to a long day of travel.

This hotel was in absolutely pristine condition when I toured the facility. I was hesitant to book initially before my visit, based on mixed reviews. I noticed attentive staff who went far above and beyong their call of duty to make my trip absolutely amazing. The facility was well maintained, the rooms were newer with granite countertops in bathroom. The value for the price was truly exceptional. You are legitimately a stones-throw from Universal Studios, and can see the Wet N Wild Water Theme Park from any room. Huge Parking Lot was delightful. There was always a spot, if you ever had an issue staff resolved that issue immediately. I truly can not say enough great things about this hotel. Beds were comfortable with premium bedding, pillows, and blankets. every room has a brand new 40 Inch Flat Screen Television within it. One of the cleanest well kept hotels I have stayed in, especially being located within such a high traffic tourist destination. Diane H. - Front Desk, made this trip exceptional and resolved any issue that I ever had with a smile. This individual made my stay totally worth it, and I will stay at this hotel and Best Westerns again in general because of her. You can not go wrong at this hotel, truly a gem!!!

Good hotel for price, will definitely stay here again. Came with a group and felt safe the whole time. The hotel itself was a little older and could stand some remodeling but rooms where clean and staff was very friendly.

Thank you for staying with us recently and for taking the time to review our hotel on TripAdvisor. Safety is always important to us and I am glad that you felt safe during your stay. Our staff is great and I appreciate you taking the time to mention how friendly they are. We are renovating the property and our soft goods are next!

I look forward to you returning again soon to see the positive changes we have made.

Stayed here for a trip to Universal ect, from all of the hotels i have stayed at on I-Drive this would be my favorite. Just around the corner from Wet n' Wild and very close to all amenities. The hotel provide shuttle buses to most parks which was an excellent feature.

I very much liked the pool area as well - Love a good heated hot tub.

The shop within the hotel is a little pricey but very useful if you don't want to walk to the shops.

All the staff were really friendly and helpful, from check in to check out with a hello every time we passed, a special mention for Josh who looked after the pool bar. A great guy.. The hotel is ideally located on corner of International Drive and Universal Boulevard. We didn't have a car and didn't miss one. The courtesy shuttle bus took us to Universal, the I Trolley for most other things and the taxi to Disney was reasonable and quick. The rooms are spotlessly clean, change of towels daily with towels at pool area also. The pool is glorious as are the hot tubs. The only reason I didn't give it a full 5 stars was that their deli was over priced and mediocre. It may only be a 3 star and a little bit dated in areas but for the price of the room, the facilities offered, staff and location I would definitely recommend and stay again. judge for yourself!

The Best Western Gateway Orlando is very good value and a nice location for International Dr. Just off the beaten path and walking distance to Wet n Wild. Clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff. A no thrills with decent amenities. Great bang for your buck with a clean room.
