Excellent staff, facilities hotel right on Universal Blvd.”

The hotel is very near Universal Orlando. It had free shuttle to the theme parks already from early in the morning (7.30 if I remember right , on time for park opening at 9am). They also offered other time schedules to and from the parks. . Other hotels in the area offered free shuttles but we found out they were always only one scheduled shuttle to the park at 11 am and pick up from park at 6 pm (park closes 9 or 10pm) which were not practical. Checking in was easy with friendly helpful staff. Checking out was fast. We only had to leave our keys in the room after receiving the invoice the night before.Parking is free around the hotel, where almost always you'll find a nearby doorway in to the hotel. The well maintained pool with lounge, 2 jacussis , hammocks, free pool towels and fitness center all added to a refreshing holiday. Breakfast buffet (with fee ) had both cold and warm food (omelets ordered from cook), beverages, sweets, fruits, cereals, yogurt, etc. Our room was always properly cleaned and had ample toiletries, microfridge and coffee maker.Truly an excellent hotel.

Clarion/Best western Universal Hotel Orlando”

Price,Facilities, Service
Bit dated, Poor bathroom, not the smartest end of international drive

We stayed here in early november for 10 nights, and were very pleased with our stay especially for the price we payed. Its worth mentioning that we only used the hotel as a base to sleep at while doing many of the things that florida has to offer!! so cant comment on everything the hotel has to offer. We found the hotel staff friendly, everywhere very clean and rooms well equiped. The pool was great, heated even out of season which is more than can be said for the much more expensive hotel we stayed at in tampa. The location of the hotel was fine for us very close to universal but is the more "grotty" end of international drive with mainly cheap t-shirt shops and not as nice as round Point Orlando. The hotel offers a free bus to universal which is well worth it given how much they now charge to park a car there. The worst thing about the hotel is the bathrooms, the shower we could not get working, so when the enginneer looked at it it turned out to be fine just had to pull it so hard the tiles all moved!!!

Great Location and Friendly and helpful staff”

Rooms are big and clean. The toilet is also clean.

The hotel in general is great. Good location which is just near most of the tourist spots and it also offers a free shuttle to Universal Studio and other Parks. The staff are very friendly and very helpful. The room and the toilet is very clean, the space is also ok. For the price this hotel is really a very good choice. I'll recommend this to my friends and if I return to Orlando I'll definitely go back to this Hotel..

Billing Practices Conflict with Statements”

Staff, Food, Location

Our stay was okay. We were in town to attend the Worldwide Pet Expo. We had already prepaid the total amount and were told on our Agoda reservation that the hotel would collect $18 in service fees - not per room, but total, and on the reservation it said it was included in our prepaid total. Upon check in, the hotel said they needed a second card to charge for 'incidentals,' which we thought meant if something broke, we ordered room service... incidents that occur while we are present at the hotel. When we checked out though, we found we had been charged 'Service Fees' of $4.50 per day for each of our rooms, accounting to $36 total. When we questioned what it was for, the front desk said that they were going to be charged to the card we had used for 'incidentals' and that these charges were for the Wifi, parking, and other miscellaneous charges. However, these were implied as complimentary, yet we were charged? Overall, the cost was not what we expected and will no longer be using Best Western Orlando Gateway.
