Great location near restaurants on I drive. Rooms have non-carpet floor so it seems extra-clean.... See full review

The Avanti International Resort in Orlando, Florida, provides friendly accommodations for families and businesspeople alike. Indulge in the Sunshine State's playful side at the swimming pool - adults can swim laps in one section of the oversized pool, while the kids splash around in waterfalls and fountains near the beach-entry area. Boost your energy levels with a bite at the poolside cafe, where burgers, pizza, salads and wraps are served, then join a game of beach volleyball in the hotel's sandy beach zone.

Resort Fees Spoil The Deal

This Hotel is all OK, except that they charge everyone 9 Dollers per day, per room, resort fee, when you arrive. They say it's for WiFi, Car Parking and the use of the Pool but most other hotels in the area don't charge resort fees, including the nearby Rosen Inn International where I stayed last time I was in Orlando. It's an unexpected expense that you dont need after paying for the hotel upfront!!

well situated but nothing more

cheap and well located however if you are considering a hotel to stay in Orlando for comfort where you can eat in hotel restaurant, spend a half day by a nice relaxing pool this is definately not the place to go a cheap and comfortable bed in low quality amenities but close to everything in orlando for sea world and universal studios

Housekeeping

We were happy staying in this hotel and our only issue is with the daily housekeeping. On three occasions our room had not been cleaned and so we had to call to ask for this service. The level of housekeeping was also poor with the floors of the room not being swept or washed. One day we took the sweeping brush to do it ourselves! The timing of housekeeping did not suit us as mostly our room was cleaned around 4 to 5 pm. Often this meant when we arrived at our room it was being cleaned and so we had to wait. Or we would arrive back to a messy room and then have to leave to allow housekeeping in. One final issue was that during our stay the hotel was doing hotel improvement work on our floor creating noise, dust and dirt. The hotel failed to inform us that this work would be taking place.

Not so great.....

They call this a resort, it is a glorified 'motel". It was clean, and the staff was very helpful, but the beds are hard, the AC was as loud as a jumbo jet landing, they did attempt to fix it, but it was only temporary, it got just as loud at 2:30 am. When I asked if we could move they said they were full and could not help me.The location is really good, located right between Disney and Universal. I will not stay here again

Fantastic family accommodation

This is a fantastic resort in a fantastic location. Highly recommended for families with children. Our only negative would be the wooden floors - although cooler than carpet, a lot of dust, dirt, hair etc gathers very quickly and the floors are not swept daily so slippers or socks recommended! Others than that, no complaints!

Your average hotel

We spent our time at Avanti for 5 nights. Staff was kind and helpful. Room fairly clean. I just wished they had cleaned the floor before we checked in. After 5 minutes of walking barefoot your feet would be dirty. The worst part about the room is that the bathroom sink was clogged. It would take 15 minutes to drain and not to mention the smell when the water would drain. Sheets and towels were clean. The only thing the room was missing was a microwave. Overall, It was your average hotel to just sleep, get ready, and go out.
