This particular Best Western is very convenient to all the theme parks and attractions, as well as local shopping. The staff were very friendly and accommodating providing us a nice room with a fridge and very comfortable bed. The restaurant located there isn’t great, but the small coffee shop was great.

Disliked: Cleanliness
Service was nice, front desk was very amicable, but the hotel smelled like wet towel. Our bathroom was dirty, and they didn't even changed the toilet paper roll. I hated the solicitors at the door, but i guess some orlando hotels have the same issue . I guess you get what you pay for.

This is a motel at best… Do not let these 5,4 or even 3 star reviews trick you into thinking this “hotel” is clean and amazing because it’s not. It's outdated, dirty and the paint is ripping off of outside doors. Our room was filthy, the floors were tacky and blacked our socks and crumbs everywhere we stepped. There were (3) THREE separate towels that had hair in them…And I mean the hair was embedded in the towel fabric front and center. There was no way housekeeping didn't notice. The couch and chair cushions had big stains on them. The computer desk chair had a giant oily hand print on the back. Our room was facing the street and you could hear every car that went by and a few times an ambulance drove by in the middle of the night waking us all up. There is a one inch gap in the bottom of the door. This wasn’t just our room, everyone's room was like this which explains why you can hear EVERYTHING and everybody's business. We took one shower and the hot water ran out. The tub was plastic and when you stepped in, the bottom would pop. The bed was terrible and bouncy and none of us slept well. The last night staying here, we came back and the whole 3rd floor smelled like chemicals and lasted for hours. When we called about the hot water issue and the chemical smell, they said someone would be right up to our room and twice, no one ever came. For as big as this room is (king suite) it only has three small drawers for 4 people? They charge a “resort fee” which is hilarious.
