    The room was big and clean, nice location, nice pool.

    The airco was too loud, difficult to sleep.

    Superb

    The location was awesome its located infront of wet n wild and a few blocks down universal studios/city walk. Restaurants were around close which is a plus.

    The pool closes at 10pm which sucks if you are there to visit the parks. No balconys not sure if its a orlando thing. The decoration of the place could of been better its an outdated building but beds are comfy

    The facilities and staff are excellent. Great family hotel ideally located, close to the International Drive restaurants and the Premium Outlets discount shopping malls. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well furnished. Good value for money. Would definitely stay here again... Christine, Orlando (US)

    Very good location. Very pet friendly. Safe and ample parking.

    Very slow check in. Unprofessional front desk. Young black female was very unorganized checking us in on April 6th around 530. Stained ceilings. Loud guests upstairs. No one ever working in the deli. Had to chase staff down for help.

    The second sink outside the bathroom. the shampoo and the conditioner

    Bathroom smell very like humidity. Ice-maker was not working the first two night

    The location was excellent. In general, it is difficult to go around in Orlando without a car but with the shuttles and iRide bus it was quite easy. Friendly staff.

    Excellent prize for a Disney Hotel. You cannot find a better prize. Very close to the Universal Studios and Island of Adventure.

    Guest rating

    Easy access to parks. Staff in the morning and afternoon very friendly and helpful. General Manager also nice. Breakfast is good, but not included.

    Almost everything disliked me: first, the room smelled smoke, took 2 days to get changed. Night staff (specially a guy named Zach) are in general very unfriendly, doesn't get to rudeness, but they clearly show that they're not pleased in their jobs, won't make any effort to please the guests. The "package receive at reception" tax of $50 is abusive and is not clearly stated in the description. Laundry doesn't have a automatic soap and softener selling machine, which makes you go all the way to the closest Walgreens to buy some after 11 pm. Staff started doing some eletric drilling for renovations before 9 pm! It took me to get up to the general manager to cease the noise, as they wouldn't care for the receptionist's order. Shuttle times were very scarce, and they only had shuttles to Universal, Sea World and Islands (no Disney). Brakfest not included is a down point. Pillows were very tall, hurt my neck.

    Exceptional

    B-W Gateway is near all the major attractions in Orlando. Walking distance to Universal Studio's "City Walk" and Wet and Wild is across the street, with Disney World and Sea World only a short drive away. Our room was on the 6th floor and it always clean and restocked everyday. The hotel grounds and pool area were always clean, and the staff was always friendly and helpful. We stayed for 2 weeks using it as a central stop, as we also went to Daytona (for the race) and the Tampa area for a day trip. We would certainly stay at B-W Gateway again if we are in the Orlando area.

    Fabulous

    Hotel is perfectly located near everything there is to see in Orlando, Wet&Wild and Universal can be done by foot. The free shuttle is great towards all the theme parks.

    Very small detail: the noisy fan in the bathroom.
