Nice hotel near to Universal Parks
A very convenient hotel for the Universal parks being just 15-20 min walk to Citywalk and I can see why its a partner hotel but feel sorry for it as Universal are currently building a monster resort next door. The rooms were comfortable and of a reasonable size. We had room 428 to start and the floor around the aircon unit was damp when we arrived. Unfortunately the next day it was like a swamp and there was a bad smell in the room so we complained at reception and they moved us to another room. No fuss and we were encouraged to view the replacement room before committing ourselves which I thought was great service. We didn't use the breakfast option in the hotel instead using a diner up the road and if I'm honest the hotels position on Universal Drive meant that restaurants were a fair distance away which was fine but inconvenient in the heat and downpours that were a common occurrence at this time of year. The reception area was nice with complementary ice water and sometimes cookies. The receptionists were friendly and efficient and housekeeping changed towels etc every day. The pool area was very good and they provide towels for use there as well. The room aircon units are quite loud but were a welcome item in the heat. All in all I thought the hotel was very nice, if I have a gripe its that in a time when we are being told to stop single use plastics, cups, coffee, sugar etc are all wrapped in a plastic throwaway film and it seems such a waste

Very good 8.0
Amazing showers big comfy beds friendly staff all hospitable and hard workouts... the rooms are clean with good amenities... the decor is tired but clean and cosy. We had a small issue on arrival and found Dianne on reception so helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for her. All the staff were very friendly including the little shop and restaurant staff. Breakfast was delicious and good value for money. Would be happy to stay there again

Poor 2.0
Nightmare In Best Western
I have stayed here before (about a year or 2 ago) but I have no idea what has happened. Our first room had crumbs of food, Dried smeared sauce on the windows, toe nail clippings on the floor and a feces stair on the toilet seat that was missed by house keeping. Once we switched rooms it appeared to be in much better condition if you can avoid the large amount of Ants found in the bathroom and behind the night stand. The 6th floor smelled as if you were in a biker bar (strong cigar smoke and marijuana). The staff was helpful manager seemed to have an “oh well” attitude. I still have a random pending charge of $96 dollars that staff and manager assured would be back into my account (has not happen) Hope they literally clean their act for future customers. I would have rather slept in my car had I known how bad these rooms were. During a huge pandemic you would think rooms would be EXTRA clean but it seems to not be the case here.

Good 6.0
HAVE stayed here many times for many years had already paid for room initially couldn't find ID or credit card desk guy didn't care much about helping me I was going back to car to go back to Tampa and found both cards as a loyal customer, I expect better treatment I know better than to expect help in the future

Fair 4.0
Worst experience
There was blood on the floor and the bed. Whwn you first opened the door it was a strong odor coming from the room. The showerhead was broken. The shower was dirty with stains. This was my first time staying at the best western and this will be my last
