I've stayed at the Best Western Orlando Gateway Hotel several times over the years. It is one of the properties that I always search when I'm looking for affordable lodging in the Orlando Area. Quite often it is the best bargain among my choices. I am always pleased with my experience at this hotel. The location is great for visiting...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 26 February 2017

On my last visit to Orlando, I booked this hotel. I admit that I was not expecting much of it. I chose it, mainly because of its location. My experience was very good. From check-in to check-out. A very clean hotel (ok not spotless clean), but way above average among the others in its category. I do reccomend it. I...

Nice place. $10 extra a night for pool side room is a great value. Make your own waffels for breakfast is nice, but the rest of the buffet is just average. The hotel is dated, but the service is advanced. At an average stay around $100 a night, I would recommend it for family's visiting Universal Orlando. That said, the...

This is an older facility definiately in need of a remodel. However, it is very clean and served us very well. We literally just slept there, showered, and left early and came back late. We didn't have a rental car so we utilized the Iride Trolley which has a stop very close. FYI, there are NO restaurants close by so...

I had stayed at Best Western Orlando Gateway, then Clarion, Hotel, Orlando before, in 2006. Since then the rooms had been vacuumed but maybe not much more although the reception and canteen/bar had been overhauled. Nevertheless, I'd stay there again. The hotel is fairly inexpensive, the staff are very friendly and if sth in the room needs mending it's dealt...

Nice place to stay. Not the newest hotel in the area but very nice staff and priced right. The room was clean but the bathroom was dated and in need of a professional renovation. Overall we were happy with our stay here.

Not clean, black mold in the ceiling corner and smelled musty. We found a used plastic cup lid in between the sheets. The price was high for the value of the room. The rooms are old and needs updated.

The hotel was in a very nice location. It had friendly staff and a clean room with a comfortable bed. Unfortunately their communication is not so good. We were under the impression we had free continental breakfast, but it was not free and hey overcharged us for the age of our kids. They also ran out of everything for breakfast...
