                  7.0

                  Location is very convenient for Universal Orlando Resort visit

                  The local transfer service provided by Mears Transportation Group was terrible. At the last day of my trip I paid for a roundtrip transfer from hotel to Disney Resort. The shuttle didn't come on scheduled time on return. I called the company's call center for 4 times in 25 minutes, representatives couldn’t solve the problem I stayed on the line with my international cell phone on every call for 6-7 minutes. As I had an international flight in 3 hours I couldn’t wait more. I found a taxi at the resort side and went back to my hotel. Every Orlando visitor should be noticed about this transportation company’s poor performance.

                • Family with children
                  7.4

                  Free Shuttle for universal, swimming pool and jacuzzi.

                  No good bar and shopping food service

                • Family with children
                  10.0

                  Central to our needs (from Australia).

                • Couple
                  8.8

                  Hotel is in good location, clean and comforable, staff are very helpful. I would recommend this hotel

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  The staff was really nice and was very understanding when we wanted to stay longer with our pet. The location was good for us since we mostly hung out on international drive. We really enjoyed our stay and will come again.

                  The pool was not open 24 hrs and breakfast was not free but otherwise our stay was great

                • Older travelers
                  5.4

                  Good location for International Drive and Universal Studios. Room was a good size.

                  Probably the worst Best Western we've stayed in - in urgent need of updating. Our room was large and clean but smelt musty - no fresh air had seen the room for years as you couldn't open the windows and needed redecoration. The bar was stuck in a time warp with outdated murals. A disappointing first experience of Orlando hotels.

                  It is very central and out of the traffic.

                  Some facilities is old and need to be refurbished. Restaurant for instance.

                  The location was excellent, the car parking easy. The swimming pool was OK plus easy to hire free tennis equipment.

                  The restaurant was a bit disappointing - the food quality was not too good, we had a small frozen pizza warmed up in the microwave - poss oven! We complained with our feet (the best way really)

                  The hotel was comfortable, facilities were excellent and the price for the rooms were good too. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you wanted accommodations that was fantastic and reasonably priced.
