Not Good

I had a very bad experience at this hotel. The bathroom tub was dirty, it even had hairs in the drain and mildew inside, the room smell bad. I got home and both of my kids got allergy. And this was only one night stay. They need to improve their cleaning !!!!

Good value for the money

BW Gateway is an old hotel but there seems to be some improvements made throughout the years. The room was clean and neat but the bathroom was looking more dated. We had two double beds in the room which were small in size and couldn't be moved to unite. This is a reasonable stay for those who want to visit Universal and other parks around and won't spend much time at the hotel. Parking at site was very convenient and there was free shuttle service to Universal though we didn't use it. All in all good value for the money spent and suited us for our purpose of travel.

Okay

The hotel staff was great very nice. However for the price they charged for breakfast buffet was so not worth it, the food was cold and not a lot of choices. The next day we went to Ihop for breakfast. The room was clean, it was 4 of us 2 adult t kids, hot water ran out quick though. So after one person took a shower the next person had to wait at least an hour. Other than that it was okay

I would advise eat outside the hotel for breakfast, the buffet was so not worth the money they charge.

Very much OK

This Hotel is a little old and in need of some TLC however it was very clean and had free Wi-Fi in the rooms which was very helpful. If you are looking for a reasonably priced clean room this is totally fine but not too much more than that

great price, friendly staff

hotel was clean, staff friendly. nice bar/restaurant right off lobby, as well as small store. rooms were clean, beds were a little uncomfortable but were still able to sleep well. many places to eat within short walking distance right at corner of universal & international drives. pool w/cabanna was great with 2 hot tubs off to the side!

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

if you don't have transportation...ask the bell captain for a ride. they have a driver on site w/town car. the price is cheaper than using a cab if you cannot use one of the trolleys or shuttles. example: cab fare to hotel from airport...almost $60. ride from hotel back to airport using town car...$45. and, much nicer ride!

What an awesome stay

The hotel was close to Universal, a water park across the street, tons of restuarants nearby, we went to 4 theme parks in 5 days, had a blast, we didnt even use a full tank of gas. The hotel staff were awesome. The room was great and the hot tub was incredible after a day of walking all over the place. The room service food was ok could be better, the price was right.
