Wont go anywhere else

Very clean, staff very helpful and friendly. Excellent location. Best part is the continuous bus service to Disney parks.from early am to late pm. Would like if they had a bus to downtown disney before 6pm. But its a short walk from hotel. Has everything you could need on a trip gift shop, restaurant snack shop bar arcade nice clean pool. I always have trouble with the laundry there, coins always get jammed in machines. Cleanliness and comfort are my #1 and this hotel meets it. Long hot showers anytime with great water pressure. Watch out for taxis in orlando, they never turn their meters on ask before you get in.

Good for the location.

The biggest reason that we booked The Best Western was because of location. The shuttle was very convenient and the fact that it ran every half an hour was a big selling point. The hotel staff were very helpful and of course the hotel was trying to sell the extra tickets/packages under the guise of "guest welcome packet". The hotel was clean and well run. The room has constant Disney traffic so it is hard to keep it looking new. All in all a good value.

Nice Get Away

Spent 3 nights at the Best Western. Was a little concerned by other reviews but I thought for the price it was well worth it. Very nice staff, very good location with free parking, pool wasn't anything special but did the trick for my son and I. I thought the breakfast buffet was a good deal with cooked to order omlettes and the bus service was easy too. Rooms are a little worn but again for the price I wasn't expecting perfection. We paid for the Disney View room which allowed us to see both Epcot and Magic Kingdom fireworks which for about $10 extra was worth it. I would surely stay here again if the price was right.

Great family vacation

My family and I stayed at the Best Western for 8 days and had a blast. Two years ago I stayed at the JW Marriott which is a 5 star hotel and I had a better time at this 3 star hotel.

Getaway with granddaughter

Pleasantly surprised with this older property. Large rooms with the most comfortable beds I've experienced at a hotel. Surroundings were quiet not a lot of noise from surrounding rooms. Parking was excellent, free and right next to the hotel no long walk. On top of this the resort fee is only $10 a night. For this you get wi-fi and discount coupons to use at Downtown Disney. The hotel location is part of the Downtown Disney area. Could not be more convenient to everything.

Good for the money

Stay was nice. Good location and shuttle service but they did not clean room after first day and we feel like the parking attendant took advantage. Ask for a cab to go to mall. He told us it was very far and would be 70 round trip for the 3 of us. It was about 10 minutes away. Think it be cheaper if cab had meter. The bar and grill has excellent food. All in all we had a good time
