Best Western Plus Universal Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Good value for being close to park. Great breakfast variety! Staff was nice but not overly friendly. Room did have a little wear, as to be expected in a large tourist city, especially next to a theme park. Two downfalls 1- they were out of laundry soap 2- a small (not bed bug) bug ran across our bathroom floor. And of course, don't fall for any under the door flyers. Use a delivery app or phone book for take out.

Great location to stay if doing Universal. The complimentary bus to Universal was good to use if you don't want to pay $$$ for parking. Be sure to check the time. The daily breakfast was very good and hearty. Burger King, Walgreen, Starbucks, Miller Ale house are very nearby within a 5 minutes walk.

It was great. Rooms were clean. Hotel staff was very helpful and cordially.

Nice, clean hotel. Nice breakfast. Shuttle does not run for the late hours for Universal!

It was four lady's and the room was nice and large especially the bathroom we enjoyed having the microwave and refrigerator in the room as well. Nice soft pillows.

Location was conveniently located, but the shuttle bus that picked us up from Universal Studios took us to the wrong hotel. Then charged us additional for taking us to the correct one. The room had an odor to it. We were directly across from the cleaning crew's area who were loud and noisy waking us up extremely early our last day.

I chose this hotel because I wanted to take advantage of a free shuttle to Universal. Hotel is located conveniently off of I-4. Check in was very quick. Room was clean. We stayed there 3 nights and room was cleaned every day to us. Breakfast was ok, just usual food items. Shuttle was great and always on time.

Good location, a few restaurants and a walgreens within walking distance. They had just restained the furniture and the stain rubbed off on some of our clothes. When we told the front desk lady she didnt seem to care.

Reasonably priced, reasonably comfortable, very clean, very friendly, free shuttle to universal studios. If you miss the shuttle, reasonably priced cab ride. Best ride of the day.

First, I would stay again here, BUT there were 2 things. 1) Parking is tough because it shares a lot with some restaurants, so couldn't find a parking spot Friday night. 2) Breakfast room was extremely hot. Not just warm, actually hot. Something must have been wrong. But the next day was only mildly better.

Quick and easy check-in and out, breakfast is good, hotel is clean and comfortable.

The stay at Best Western was pleasant. The room was clean and the bed was good. Breakfast was available every morning and the hotel was a walking distance to Universal Studio

I really enjoyed my stay. The breakfast was the best continental breakfast I have ever had. Can't wait to come back.

This hotel was one of the best hotel experiences I've had. The room was very affordable and extremely close to Universal Studios. They provided a shuttle service to the park as well as free breakfast which was phenomenal! I definitely will be staying here again.

Overall stay was okay. We had a room by housekeeping area. So it was a little noisy hearing them come in and out of that area. Made it hard to get some sleep. The room was clean overall. Staff was friendly.

Friendly staff. Check in was a breeze. Room was immaculate and comfortable. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Its a hop skip and jump away from Universal -- you can walk to it - -plus they have a shuttle to other attractions that we don't use. We stayed here and only paid around $60 per night - towards the end of the vacation we stayed at a a Disney resort and the cost us $1200 for 3 nights versus the $200 plus for BW for 4 nights -- guess where I would stay again!

We enjoyed our stay. Would stay there again. Never had any problems while staying at BW.

This hotel has all you need: Location to Universal is perfect....walking distance to boat shuttle or take free hotel shuttle, also right by Walgreens and restaurants. Clean comfy rooms, clean well sized Bathroom, yummy hot breakfast (included) with plenty of options to choose from, free parking, friendly staff, and UNBEATABLE price in this close proximity. We also booked a 5star room at the Portofino (3 nights) and we were greatly disappointed, after 1 night stay....cancelled and moved back into Best Western Plus; where we spent our first night upon late arrival into town. Best last minute booking ever!

This hotel was a real find. It was well worth the price. The staff was really friendly and aimed to please. Given the chance I would definitely sign up for another stay..
