    « Better than expected »

    The overall experience from check-in to breakfast and check-out was better than expected. I would definitely stay here again. Staff was very pleasant. Breakfast had a large variety and was very good. Room was also very good, clean and spacious.

    « ONE NIGHT STAY »

    We were in Orlando on our way to Daytona to attend the Daytona 500. It was a nice hotel, clean and the staff was very pleasant. It is in an older part of town so there were not too many restaurants close by.

    « 21st Birthday celebration weekend! »

    Great visit and excellent service. Especially enjoyed the breakfast each morning and the fantastic service from Jocelyn ! Easy check in and check out. Restaurants nearby for both quick and sit down meals. Will be back.

    « Nice hotel friendly staff »

    Nice clean hotel, great free breakfast and great staff. Only complaint is beds aren't super great they are ok. But for just some place to sleep overnight can't beat it. Would stay again, lots of restaurants in area too.

    « Awesome breakfast, amenities and staff! »

    Breakfast is always great because of all the choices, you'll never be dissatisfied, especially the biscuits and gravy. Staff is always kind and polite, and quick to fix anything that you're dissatisfied with. Very clean rooms and quick room service.

    « Not close enough to University »

    Hotel claims to be close to the University however it is actually quite a distance away and it is not convenient going back and forth. Area seems not to be the safest area and doors to motel rooms didn't seem secure enough.

    I was very happy with my stay overall. I was in town from Lake City, FL with my daughter so we could check out UCF. This place was clean, offered a great hot breakfast! The Front Desk Manager, Dena was friendly and professional and William the Manager made us feel special and welcomed.

    « AMAZING STAFF »

    I stopped in on business, my flight was delayed by several hours and decided to call it a night. From the moment I made a call and asked if they had any rooms available I was treated warmly and with kindness. The rooms were clean, it was surprisingly quiet. The beds were comfortable and I was able to get a good nights sleep and a hearty breakfast before my flight back. I dealt with William and Joel upon my exit and both cared enough to make sure I was rested and well treated! I travel a lot with my company and will DEFINITELY make sure I am booked here every trip to Orlando! GREAT JOB STAFF!

    « GREAT PLACE!!! »

    The General Manager William was amazing and super attentive to our needs! Dena I think the front end manager was also super helpful and caring! Hotel was nice. Very quiet and noise restricting. Also the front desk staff was informative of neighboring stuff to do with our family. Super helpful! Will be back!!!

    « Our break from our college students at the University. »

    The hotel was very accommodating during spring break in helping us find 2 adjacent rooms and gave us a great rate. It was a great hotel, great staff, clean, professional, great breakfast & great location to the three colleges & Disney. Most importantly we were able to come it at night, take a shower, and sleep without any outside noises bothering us. We appreciate the service by all the staff for accommodating us. Gina/Amy went above their duties & were a delight to see every morning. We will be back to stay with this hotel every time we visit the kids (young adults) at college. Thanks!!!

    « Very nice inn »

    Really one of the nicer inns around. Nice interior design, friendly staff, good breakfast. Affordable for families - we are a family of four, and as opposed to many hotels, there is actually enough space for us and the luggage :). Special kudos to Gina who helped us get the day started.

    « Average Visit »

    We stayed at this location because it was the most conveniently located Best Western for our needs on this trip. It wasn't the best Best Western I ever stayed at but it was adequate for what we needed it for. The service was good, it was clean although the rooms need to be updated and it did smell musty when we first went in. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was decent. The breakfast staff was excellent. There's not another Best Western near the location we need to be at in Orlando so we will stay at this hotel again next time we need to be there.

    « Business Trip »

    I have to thank Todd who corrected an online booking event. I had been notified at the last minute for a business trip I was required to attend. My husband booked this hotel. When I arrived, much to my surprise, I found that the booking date was for the previous night. Therefore, I missed my booking date. However, Todd was able to rectify the entire situation...refunded my missed confirmation, and found me a room for the night. Thank you, Todd, for such great customer service.

    « Solid staff, big clean rooms »

    10 minutes from UCF. Attentive staff, good prices and decent variety breakfast. Best price I found on that side of town. For some reason, the signage was down but once we found it, the hotel was fine in comparison to others in that category. Seems popular with work crews but no issues. If you're looking for an upscale experience, you'll need to pay 40-50% more.

    2
    « While it looks pleasant while driving by, there's a lot of issues after you get here. »

    Pros: Free breakfast, free Wi-Fi, free parking (normal vehicles), outdoor pool, larger mini-fridge, small microwave, one cup coffee maker and lots of outlets. Cons: truck parking (it's on a non-paved deep sand/dirt lot. You can't get a tractor trailer in there. You might not find any parking or worse, you might be blocked in). The room doors are very light, feels like someone can push it in. The furniture needs upgrading (plastic cushions <see photo>). Window drapes cover airconditoner <see photo>. You can hear the traffic and people from inside your room.

    « Adequate for our needs »

    2 night stay at this hotel while we visited the Kennedy Space Center for the Falcon Heavy launch. The check-in process went smoothly and staff friendly. The room was spacious and clean, although a little dated. We had trouble getting into the room before realizing the door handle needed to be pushed up rather than down. Confusing. The breakfast bar was clean and well stocked. It provided a nice variety of breakfast items to start the day. The location on Highway 50 provided an easy drive to Kennedy.

    « Very good! »

    No complaints, we will keep coming back. Specially the breakfasts are the best. Rooms are very clean and beds are very comfortables. Have to drive a little longer to the parks, but it is much affordable.

    « Aging hotel »

    Best Western Hotels seem to be aging. Service is good, breakfast is good. Housecleaning does a good job. Beds are comfortable. Carpets are old, bathroom grout needs thorough cleaning. Plaster and Sheetrock often damaged and not repaired correctly. Orlando hotel appeared shabby. Not a great neighborhood yet no room safes. Towel bar falling off the wall. Tv adequate, beds clean and comfortable. Room color not appealing green. It would have been nice if hotel personnel would walk through grounds at night to quiet loud guests. Pool appeared clean though unused. Breakfast was very good. Breakfast area very nice. Personnel kept it clean and replenished. Coffee good.

    of carpet, rooms You need to improve ALL the areas of this hotel, the aspect of carpet and rooms are far to be a good experience. The location is good and they should be renewed or removed from the chain. I am a frequent user of best western and is one of the worst facilities that I have been

    « New Year's Eve »

    I saying in this hotel for New Years Eve. The hotel was very expensive. When I got there to check in, The employee didn't even explained me the breakfast hours. When I got to the room, the room smell like humid. Under the bed was really dirty like it was never vacuum. The only positive thing was that the customer service during breakfast was very polite and has food at all times.

    « Dirty rooms »

    The room had a disgusting smell, it was overall dirty, bed and pillows were lumpy and the price was too high for this type of room. Even the towels were rough and needed to be replaced. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area. I was very sorry I chose this hotel.

    « a great deal and a great hotel »

    i was very satisfied with this hotel. i stayed only for one night on my way to Tampa. I secured a great deal from one of the online websites.The staff was very courteous. within my first 30 minutes of being in my room. the main desk called to see if my room was neat, organized and well maintained. i should add that the convenience of having the hotel located near a major highway made getting to downtown Orlando and Tampa an easy commute.

    « Good accessibility to University »

    The lady at the check-in was polite, fast, and professional. The maintenance staff (Joel and the other guy) were friendly, hard workers and fast at resolving issues. Overall the staff was customer service oriented, they gave the extra mile and always in a friendly and professional.

    « disappointed stay »

    Very disappointed in this property. the area itself is a little sketchy. When we checked into our room, it was located on the backside of the building, all the room doors were open and the TV was blaring with the fan unit on full blast. the room itself was musty and did not give a "clean" vibe to it. Employees were huddled outside smoking (they should have a designated smoking area). I picked this property in part because it offered a fitness center, or so it advertised, when I arrived I was simply told there was not one. no further explanation given.

    5
    « Surprised »

    Nice outside but the workers here prove excellence in the smallest task. I can't thank Crystal and the other ladies enough for all their hard work. Great attitudes and pleasant environment. The only thing I would change is the breakfast burrito lol :)

    2
    « Much better options nearby »

    This hotel is not very convenient to UCF, and was well below my expectations. It is extremely noisy with paper thin walls. Check out the options provided by Holiday Inn Express, Springhill Suites and others closer to UCF. The staff was friendly and professional, but the property just doesn't cut it.

    3
    « Decent place to stay »

    Visiting my son at UCF, happened to be over the Homecoming Football Game weekend, so it was hard to find accommodations. I did manage to book this reservation, and selected it primarily due to its proximity to his apartment. There was a lot of construction in the parking lot and the area is rather industrial. Check in took a while due to a larger group checking in. The room was nice and clean, and very comfortable. Breakfast was a bit of a madhouse-due to the volume of people, especially families with children. They ran out of eggs and bacon, so there was a wait to refill the containers. Then, nowhere for me to eat, so I had to take my food to my room. All in all, it was an "OK" value for the amount paid. I would probably stay again, more for its proximity to my son's home. I have stayed in other establishments closer to campus that were a little more expensive but provided a bit more quality.

    3
    « Todd at the front desk on my second day had the best laugh and changed my view of the property »

    My son attends UCF and the hotel I normally use was under repair due to Hurricane Irma so my reservation was cancelled. I found this hotel online. When First checking in I was leery because the entrance to the room were from outside. When checking in, the young lady was very nice but her boss must've had a bad day because she kept correcting her, nitpicking, in a non professional manner; this made me even more leery. This next morning, at breakfast, I heard Todd laugh. He had the most infectious, bellowing laugh and it made my morning. When I spoke to him he was professional and very vibrant, his colleagues seemed to love him too. I realized, for the price, the property was just older and not too bad. I judged it the first night based on my first impression at check-in. The breakfast was good, the rooms clean and spacious and it was my impression at check-in that kept my view of the property skewed. Thank you Todd!

    « 2 night stay and I'm done »

    Second year I have stayed at this hotel. I have business in the area and it is convenient for me. Morning free breakfast is very good, hot, fresh and a large selection. Typical motel setting with free parking. Bed was very comfortable. I wasn't happy with the cleanliness this visit. My white socks were pretty dirty after walking around in the room. On check out I told them of 2 issues I felt needed to be resolved. They made a note of that. 2nd day, I returned to my room at 10 p.m. and housekeeping didn't freshen my room. Upon checkout I told the Front Desk, and they said, If you have a Do Not Disturb sign on your door at 9 a.m., they by-pass your room and don't come back. When I told them I removed the sign at 10:15 a.m. when I went to work for the day, Front Desk basically said, that's their policy. I find that policy totally inconsiderate. Next time in the area, I will seek another hotel.

    « One of the worst hotel rooms i ever seen »

    Arrived late, went to the check in desk and the person who handled it was courteous and extremely polite. Parked near my room entrance and when i opened the door the smell coming from inside the room just punched me in the face. It was a mix between old smoke odor and humidity, so strong that i decided to leave my bag in the car. It felt so humid inside the room that also the carpet, bed sheets and towels felt like that. When i went to use the restroom i found to live roaches roaming around. I had to sleep over the sheets. They offer free breakfast but i decided to to have breakfast somewhere else just in case... I stayed Sep 4, 2017 - Sep 5, 2017, Itinerary # 7293103520268, Confirmation # 606604709. I knew that i was not booking a 5 star hotel but for $82.12 i thought that i was going to get at least a modest, plain, nice room, comparing the price with other similar hotels in the area.

    After another hotel lost my reservation for college move-in day, the staff at BW had 2 options for me that literally saved me from driving an extra 15 miles! Check-in was fast, express check-out was super and the interiors were beautiful. I had an indie facing room, so traffic was not an issue.

    We enjoyed our stay, will defiantly stay here again. We had a room that over looked the pool, which was wonderful. My family enjoyed swimming and lounging around the pool. Breakfast attendant Amy is a sweet heart, we enjoyed seeing her smile each morning. Todd at the desk corrected our discomfort easily and fast so that we could get to our room. Many restaurants to choose from. We eat at Chili's and Golden Coral, both places were great.

    « unpleasant surprise »

    Check in was very pleasant and about the only positive thing that I could say about our stay The clerk was very nice and professional. He allowed us a one hour late check out and express checkout. The rate of the hotel was what I considered average for a suite at a Best western or Holiday Inn that is not in a prime location. We were on the first floor which was nice because my father in law is 87 and my husband has an injury and I'm disabled. we parked as close to the room and went ahead to the room. Much to our surprise the room was small. Had no microwave. not enough blankets on the bed considering it was like antarctica in the room> I tried to adjust the temperature however the Auto on the AC was not working and the temperature regulator read one thing and the AC ran super cold. I told housekeeping the next morning but nothing was done. I requested 2 warm blankets and they were given to us but they did not keep us warm enough. There was also a weird smell in the room and the room was not vacuumed when they came to clean it. The bathroom was also cleaned very quickly which raised the question, "How well did the bathroom get cleaned?" The road was a bit noisy and so were some drunk guest. The establishment was more like a motel than a hotel. We were quite disappointed. I also never received my receipt by email as I was told by the clerk when I checked in.

    « Roaches and decor »

    Upon entering my room I thought I had stepped back in time. The furniture looked like a motel from the 60's. The carpet was so filthy I actually had to walk on towels. I awoke in the middle of the night switched on lights and found German cockroaches dancing on the walls.

    « Beware of extra charges and bugs »

    Stayed here because we had a weekend getaway to Sea World for a weekend. It's convenient to the interstate and breakfast was okay, but that's where good ends. I'm not sure what was going on but my boyfriend put a chair under the door knob because of people raising their voices outside and some shady characters walking around. Website says there is a hot tub but looks as though it's been cemented in so there is no hot tub now. I booked online and read over the fine print and even went back through and showed the front desk agent my confirmation and NO WHERE on any website or confirmation does it state a $50 deposit will be taken from your CC after they have taken a copy of your ID and CC. They won't allow you to stay with out this deposit. I explained I had not accounted for that and just put on my card what I would need for the hotel and Sea World, but they took the $50 and the additional $200 for two nights and held it. What kind of place takes a additional amount like that if your credit card is on file? Bad business practice. Be prepared to see roaches in your room and maybe a spider or two. Reported to front desk but nothing was ever done and room was never serviced after two nights....Stay elsewhere if you can.

    « Served a Purpose »

    I enjoyed my stay. Pool well maintained and breakfast was good, bugs were comfortable and staff was friendly. Nice location easy 30 minute drive to Buena Vista and other attractions.

    « Random but convenient location »

    The location of this hotel seems random as there really isnt any other hotels near it. It is right off the toll road and a very busy route 50, but this also makes things convenient since you can get to mostly anything within 10-15 min. Check in was slow and the clerk didnt know how to use my Best Western gift cards. Rooms are all outfacing as its an older property. Rooms themselves are nice. LOTS of room inside with updated carpet, paint, bedding etc... TV channel selection was average, wifi was slow most of the time. Shower pressure was mehh, plenty of hot water, though the hot water often smelled like burning hair. Room AC worked well, with the constant fan button as an option to dull any noise (which was minimal). I slept great with a comfy bed and decent pillows. There does seem to be some people who live here, and we did see 1 truck with 4 flat tires after a night, but we assumed there was probably some ill intent with that personal specifically. We also noticed a lot of bottles and cans just around and the trash always full. There is no traffic light at the property, but you just go right and make a U turn. There is a 7-11 and a Wawa close by, though food options can be a 10-15 min drive, esp past 10pm. Check out was fairly smooth, though they did knock on my door at 10:59am asking if I was checking out. When I told them I was just about to finish packing and i'll be out in 5 min, she thought I wanted to stay 5 more days...

    Our rooms were very clean, the property and pool areas were well maintained. The staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast was hot and fresh. Since we were there 3 days, I appreciated that they varied the breakfast offerings each day. All was just as advertised (so glad since we booked online- sight unseen)! Thank you!

The price is right, the accommodations are clean and relaxing, and they have an early breakfast that consists of everything you could think of. My family especially enjoys making their own Belgium Waffles. :) :) The pool was very relaxing also. :) OVERALL...I would certainly recommend this location to all my family and friends.

I call my credit card told them that chare is authorized but reques a new card due to the fact that i dont know where those copies ended or who is going to use it. Dont know why do this after I submitted my CC info thru the website. Bathroom was ok, look decent at most I guest and pool look decent. Also The area did not inspire to much confidence.

    Stayed two nights. Very easy to get to hotel -- right off main road. Noticed broken window frame in lobby during check-in, which made me wonder how room would be. Turned-out room was very clean and all was in order. (Had a problem with TV that was prompted fixed.) Lobby had high-ceiling that added to ambience during breakfast. Sitting breakfast area filled quickly (sat on lobby couch while table opened up) and food area was small and a bit cramped. But they had waffles with strawberry batter... interesting... and sausage, egg-patties, biscuits, along with other expected items -- very satisfied with breakfast selection and hotel staff keeping it stocked. Was hoping to use outdoor pool, but did not have time... it seemed a bit small, but was clean and well kept; other guests were enjoying it the night we arrived. Price was initially a little high for a Best Western, but reasonable with Expedia discount.

    The staff of the hotel was extremely helpful and friendly. However, although the room was large and comfortable, the carpet smelled dirty, a mixture of humidity and cigarettes (People smoke right outside the door). The curtains needed fixing (ripped), the smoke alarm was hanging from the wall, and it seems that the carpet was not clean or needed replacement. All these made it very difficult to sleep. Will not pick again.

    Great location, comfortable bed and ill own, full breakfast free, free parking, no resort fee, only a $50 refunded at check out security hold on credit card at check in, clean, check that your windows lock, some rooms have microwave, all seem to have fridge. Pool side us noisy til 10pm, can here people talking in outdoor hallway and they can here you inside (tested it), staff are amazing, no elevator that I saw. Most vending machines are Pepsi products but the one at the bottom of stairs by breakfast entry has coke products. Full breakfast was very nice. Turning left, into or out of the property requires a U turn on Colonisl (busy road). Nothing to eat within walking distance. Walmart to right on Colonial just a 5 minute drive. UCF an easy and short 10 minute drive. For under $100 it's worth it. Not sure that I would choose if I was a single female traveling alone.

    « Great bang for your buck! »

    My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay here at this Best Western. We stayed for 3 nights for Star Wars Celebration at the OCCC. It had everything your typical hotel room usually has, mini fridge, coffee maker, little table for you to eat at, and the television rotated on its stand, so I was able to angle it towards me while the girlfriend was asleep. Now, this hotel is about 30 minutes away from International Drive (45 if traffic is heavy) so you will have to travel a bit to get to some of the amusement areas of Orlando, but if you have Sunpass or Epass, and traffic is light, you can get there in like 15 minutes. The only issue I had with this hotel (which isn't really their fault but I want other travelers to be aware) was our room was near the highway so it was very noisy, even at night. What really made me enjoy my stay was the breakfast. Variety of bagels and eggs, pancakes, waffles, fruits, biscuits, really all it was missing was hash browns! I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again!

The king bed was very comfortable, and clean. No complaints there. The A/C worked perfectly. You could hear some exterior noise being close to the highway, but not enough to keep yo from getting a good night sleep. The breakfast was very welcoming and plentiful. They had a good selection of breakfast items on the menu. If you left feeling hungry, it wasn't because of them not having enough food on hand. The breakfast staff were very friendly.

    I had business in the area, and stayed at the Best Western Orlando East hotel. My room was remodeled, clean and very comfortable. The free breakfast was very good. Assortment of cereal, breads, coffee, tea, fresh cooked bacon and plain omelet. Microwave with instructions to make your own breakfast sandwich and to add shredded cheese. Dining area was in the lobby, quiet, clean, and comfortable with the TV on. I only stayed one night, so I didn't use any other amenities. There isn't anything in walking distance, but a very short car ride has every fast food place you can imagine as well as CVS and other small stores. My room was quiet, until morning traffic started. If you're a very light sleeper, keep that in mind. My room faced Highway 417, but perhaps the opposite end of the building might be better. I will definitely stay at this Best Western next time when I am in the area.

    « Continental breakfast??? a little misleading but we forgive you!! »

    As with other reviews, in spite of the freeway noise the hotel is above par, on the older side but extremely well maintained. A small but clean pool... a fitness room would be a plus. The neon sign claims that the staff are friendly - that is true - it also states that the hotel provides a continental breakfast. For some hotels that would be a few muffins, cold cereal and packet of bagels.... not so here. Cheese omelettes, bacon and hash browns as well as biscuits and gravy, lots of fruit and greek yogurt, and of course the obligatory muffins and bagels. This, in my estimation is not a continental breakfast but a great well balanced meal with lots of options. Would we stay there again?... in a heart beat!!! Thank you for being a part of our weekend getaway. Location very central for out Annie Russell theater trip, dinner in Winter Park, Global Energy 10K at Festival park and Cirque du Soleil at the Amway.

The room was clean, the beds comfortable, the water hot. The furniture, lighting, and carpet looked new. A fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and a table with TWO chairs made having a meal in the room not only possible but comfortable. The bathroom lighting was warm so makeup didn't look scary. There was even a full length mirror. Add electrical outlets on the lamp bases and free wi-fi, and I'd say this hotel has thought of everything to make a stay easy and comfortable. Front desk, housekeeping, and food service staff were very professional, gracious, and welcoming. At the complimentary breakfast buffet, we were even offered coffee refills tableside, a nice touch not expected when the coffee cups are paper! And the hotel is pet-friendly!

    « My Weekend At Best Western Orlando East Inn & Suites »

    I am currently a resident of Louisiana, and I am enrolled in graduate school at Asbury Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida / Wilmore, Kentucky (2 campuses). I have been coming to Orlando about 4 - 6 times a year for on-campus classes, and I have always stayed at this particular Best Western on East Colonial Drive. This hotel has been perfect for my commute and the accommodations are exactly what I need. The staff are not only friendly but very helpful, and this has been consistent for the last year or two that I have been coming. With this particular visit, the hotel had recently upgraded their internet services but since my computer is aging I was having trouble getting it to work properly. One of the maintenance techs Joel Baez helped me troubleshoot it for a good 30 minutes before we threw in the towel on the wireless and he provided me with an ethernet cable. Problem solved and I'm back online! Thanks Joel B.! Thanks Best Western for always being there when I needed you to be! Sincerely, Stephen Hebert

    This is my 4th or 5th stay at this location and it has gotten better with time. Recently renovated and much cleaner and newer now than when I first stayed. Unfortunately, they seem to have also increased the price a bit since my first stay and this was unwelcome as the price was important to me in choosing the hotel.

    « visiting my UCF daughter »

    Friday morning we were awoken by landscapers at 7:00 am. Now we are on vacation it would have been nice if they started a little later. Also, our second night our room was not made up or clean towels when we arrived back at 11pm. When we asked why at the front desk we were told because we had the Do not disturb sign on our door still at 10am. However someone was in our room because our air conditioner was shut off. The front desk staff both at night and the next morning basically did not care because we booked through Expedia and not them. The staff for the continental breakfast were so sweet polite and helpful. I enjoyed seeing them every morning. Our last night all we heard all night was a dog barking. Again the staff said Well people sneak dogs in. And then pretty much shrugged there shoulder in a not caring action. I will definitely not stay here again when I visit my daughter at school.

    « Ups and Downs »

    Things didn't start too good. The person at the front desk gave us our key, it was raining. We got to the room and the key didn't work. I returned to the front desk and the recepcionist tried to reconfigure it again. I went back to the room and AGAIN it didn't work, all this getting myself wet with the rain. Back to the front desk, the person incharge of the hotel's maintenance, Joel, was really nice and asked the recepcionist to give us a good room for the inconvenient. He gave us room 247, which was apparently a bigger room but it had an awful sound on the wall behind the beds. Apparently, next to the room there's a maintenence room where I don't know what they do but you feel really strong bumps into the wall and as if the room was shaking. That was REALLY disturbing. Breakfast was very nice, small but with very nice options. People at the front desk are not nice as the waitress or maintenance staff. Rooms are dark, you need to have lights on all the time. Bathrooms are ok. Beds are really nice. Floor around the hotel is really slippery and when it rains, you have to walk very slow. The wifi connection was good. An overall normal experience.

    « Nice price, great people! »

    This is a very "no frills" hotel that is clean and conveniently located near the Asbury Orlando campus. It's near the 417 expressway and right on Colonial which both see lots of traffic, but if you can stand traffic sounds or use earplugs in your sleep, you're good to go! It's got tasty breakfast, clean rooms, clean bedding and is always just what I need to have a reasonably priced room near my school! The staff know me on sight and are warm and welcoming each time they see me! They recently upgraded the bathroom fixtures and got new carpet in the rooms. Most of the beds are comfy and there is never a problem with the wifi or hot water running out. I stay here a lot. I will keep staying as long as I am in school!

    « Noisy »

    First and foremost the rooms are super clean and beds are very comfy. Our first assigned room had a strong cigarette smell when air conditioner was running. They gladly switched our room and this one had no cigarette smell. The hotel is on a busy street with the highway adjacent to it so you can hear cars from you room (if facing the highway). Then our lovely neighbors were talking outside our door most of the night. We were right in front of the stairs and they put a chair and talked most of the night into the early morning. I don't feel what I was charged for the night is justified. The hotel is non- smoking rooms so what people do is congregate outside puffing away the smoke gets into the ac units since they are in front of the room. So the smoke ends up in the room. The hotel is smoke free "rooms" - hotel is pet friendly didn't hear any dogs crying so that was a plus.

    « musty smell »

    We arrived late so when we entered our room and it was obvious that it was a nonsmoking room we were too tired to complain. We thought we would get used to it but after spending one night that was all we could stand. It wasn't just the smell, it was very damp. The A/C worked, it was cool but it didn't take the humidity out of the room. We all awoke to a headache and all paper products in the room were wet. We were refunded the two unused nights and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Too bad the pool looked very nice and the grounds were well kept, loved the location.

    I have never stayed at this hotel because of a few reviews that I have previously read even though it is close to were I have meetings. But it was great. Clean, very comfortable bed. The only real lacking was a microwave in the room. I asked to be in a room away from the highway and interstate. I was put in a side room by the interstate. I could not really hear the traffic but occasionally could hear other guests doors slamming. The front desk afternoon lady is ok but could use a little training in people skills. The rest of the staff was great. I will be staying here more.

    We walked in on a Friday night to book a room after selling our home in Orlando and needing a place to stay for one night before moving on to our new city & state. Sharlene treated us like royalty! After learning of why we were staying she offered to upgrade our room with the understanding it wouldn't be ready for a couple more hours - no worries since we were going to celebrate with friends at a local restaurant. Upon our return several hours later Todd was there to assist as well and checked us in quickly with a big smile and great sense of humor. Sharlene appeared and provided gift bags with water & a snack which was an additionally sweet gesture. The room was clean and adequate space for our stay and the continental breakfast was amazing! Many choices and all was very fresh accompanied by another great member of the staff to ensure we had everything we needed! They all made an emotional time much better with their friendly smiles, positive attitudes and great sense of humors. We would stay there again when in town to visit friends in that area and recommend to others for sure - great job!!!

    « Reversal of fortune »

    Originally we had booked a room at a no-name hotel for the weekend. Boy was that a mistake. While the price was pretty cheap the old adage "you get what you pay for" couldn't have been more applicable here. Within an hour we demanded (and got) our money back due to non working outlets, a dangerous hair dryer (we were told they didn't have any more), used water bottles under the bed and ew, a dead spider under the comforter in the bed and furniture that they picked up at a flea market. I could go on but I won't. Luckily I was able to hit up Travelocity at the last minute and find the last available room at the Best Western Orlando East Inn & Suites for slightly more than the price of the other hotel. To go from the single worst hotel experience to the best was a godsend. The staff was above and beyond friendly and positive. From the desk clerk to the breakfast buffet attendees to even the maintenance man who helped carry our bags to our room. To a fault all the workers there refused to accept tips saying that "they were more than happy to help". The room was clean had all the amenities you'd expect like free WiFi, an HD TV with HBO, complimentary coffee, to even a good size mini fridge that you could stock. The maid service was prompt and did a great job with the room. The breakfast buffet was fully stocked, even later in the morning, and had all you could ask for to start the day. For the price you couldn't go wrong. All in all it was the most pleasant experience my family has had at a hotel and can't recommend the Best Western Orlando East Inn & Suites enough.

A Walmart Neighborhood Market (grocery store for those of you who don't know) was about 10min down the road, too. The front desk staff was pleasant and check-in was easy. The $25 deposit was credited to my account immediately after checkout, too. Our room was clean and up-to-date. The towels were nice. Water pressure in the shower was also great.

    « March 2016 two-night split stay »

    We needed a hotel close, but not right next to the airport for a late arrival and an early departure out of Orlando airport. This hotel was about a 15-20 drive (easy access both ways). We arrived at about 2:30 in the morning to a very friendly and hospitable hotel representative, who got us checked in efficiently. The hotel is small, with outer door access to rooms. That is, there are no inside hallways. So, you park close to your room and enter from an exterior door. The rooms are decent size and clean. We had one on the first floor for the first night's stay and one on the second floor for the second night's stay. I preferred the second floor myself, only because it was a little more secluded at the end of the building. Beds were clean. Bathrooms were clean. Room comes with a refrigerator, coffee maker, blow dryer, and sample size shampoos/soaps?everything you need really with extras at the front desk if you need them (razors, etc.). The continental breakfast was good, with a variety and the staff working the breakfast shift were very nice and accommodating. We only booked one night at beginning of travel, since I wanted to be sure it was a decent place to stay (booked blind, without recommendation for the first night). After staying the first night, we booked a second night for our return trip. Note: We weren't staying in Orlando for the duration, which is why we only needed first and last night's stay. Also, there was some construction going on the first morning, very early. You may want to inquire about that if you need to get a late sleep in the morning. It looks like they'll be doing remodel for a little bit longer. Overall, I would recommend this hotel. The only downside was being woken up by the construction. Pool was lovely too. Small and outdoors, but decent size. I didn't have a chance to use it, but it looked nice and clean. Ask where vending machines are if you use those. They were a little difficult to find.

    They seem to be remodeling this place! Just didn't care for the breakfast food and tiny bathroom for a 2 Queen bed suite. Very narrow room. Some of the staff wasnt as friendly as other places we stayed.

    « Disappointed frequent customer »

    The property and the rooms were very good for our needs. I had several issues with the staff at the front desk during our stay. Some things that I would communicate would not get passed along. One associate in particular, Todd, was very rude and unhelpful. Multiple times when I would ask a question he would just shake his head no, never offering alternative solutions or explanations. I had 3 rooms for 3 weeks and wanted to extend another 3 weeks for 4 rooms. The 4th room was going to be for my children to spend time with me, so I requested that room be side by side with my own. Again, Todd offered no assistance. That is when I checked out of all rooms and moved our stay to another hotel. Our company stays dozens of nights all over the country at Best Western locations. I am also a current rewards member. I will not stay at that location again.

    « Couldn't stay there »

    Place looked old and run down from the curb. Inside, the lobby was small, poorly lit, seemed dirty and unkempt. Behind front desk, door was open to back room which looked like an unfinished storage area. MW oven on table in lobby was small, and door was left open, I waited for a while to be waited on by the desk attendant, who seemed disinterested and occupied with other people who walked in, one after me. I was alone and Felt so uncomfortable, I left and went to another hotel.

    « Not for us »

    This is an old hotel. You can tell it has been updated somewhat but it still looks old and just doesn't feel clean. There was a sign in the lobby saying they were doing renovations when we stayed last week. The room was okay. The beds were comfortable. Did not use shower as there was hair in the tub and on the bathroom floor which grosses me out. That evening we decided to go out and as we opened the door to leave; the whole entire door handle came off. We called the front desk and maintenance was there in less than five minutes and then it took him another 5 minutes or so to fix it. That was great and wonderful and everything HOWEVER the maintenence guy said he could not fix the outside knob. The outside knob was so wiggly it seemed like it was just going to fall off. We didn't feel comfortable with just leaving all of our stuff in the room with door handle like that so we took it with us. Not to sure about the people hanging out around the hotel and pool area. My husband and I and our 11 year old daughter felt very uncomfortable the entire time. The next morning we tried their breakfast which was terrible. Everything we ate was cold. Trying to actually get breakfast was another problem in itself. There were 5 people trying to make breakfast along with two of their breakfast workers all squeezed in a little tiny cubby hole in the wall. The setup sucks. No, we would not stay again.

    « Poor customer service and awful shower »

    After calling ahead to try to make a reservation at this hotel we were told that check-in time would not be until 3. We were totally chill with this. They said we would be getting the last non-smoking room. Upon arriving at the hotel hours early we expected a wait. We checked in periodically to see if the room was available for an early check-in. They had said we would be in one room, but 4 hours later we were given a different room. If this second room had been ready, why were we not given it to begin with? We had sat in the lobby for hours playing on phones and just chatting. They saw us waiting and offered us water once. We spoke with the manager about our issues and he was completely disinterested. We finally got in our room to find that the shower was broken, the hot water was not working, the internet did not work, the carpet was pulling away from the wall, and the paint was peeling.

    « A Good Choice for an overnight stay »

    This was a clean hotel but it did need updates. The breakfast was good. The bed was not very comfortable and I wouldn't stay again for that reason only. It was a lot of money to pay for a bed that was this uncomfortable. It was good enough for a one night stay.

    Every employee was excellent from lobby to food service to maintenance. Received phone call after getting into room to make sure everything was fine which I had not experienced in other hotels.

    « Worst night sleep EVER »

    The walls are paper thin, I could hear everything from the rooms beside me and from outside. Someone knocked on the door next to ours at 2AM and from there on I was woken up every hour on the hour from something. The maid carts walking by at 8am sounded like earthquakes and the maids were yelling into their walkie-talkies at 8am with them turned up so loud. It was a terrible experience then when I was checking out the man next to me told the receptionist he had roaches in his room so I guess I got lucky. This is a 50$ a night hotel, not 125$!!! Beware

    « Orlando East Best Western »

    This appeared to be an older hotel. Our room smelled a little musty but was ok. The threshold of the door did not meet allowing two small openings under the door where small bugs or critters could enter the room. It appeared to have only one stair case for the entire two floors for both front and back rooms and we did not encounter an elevator. Located near the freeway with easy access. The pool area was very nice and even had a handy cap chair for easy access for those who are handy-capped. A nice pick-nik area complete with a grill was also very nice.

    The location is next to a toll road that drives directly to the airport, the price is good for the location, there are plenty of places to eat nearby, and the free breakfast is great. The issues I had were small, but multiple. The staff manager, or any manager staff never reached out to me during my stay, even though I had multiple concerns. That to me is a tell tale sign of larger issues. I spent two weeks here and could not leave because my official travel listed this hotel as the first and best option. I had bugs in my room almost everyday. The staff did come and spray, but that only created less bugs and dead bugs. Trash was left in my sink by the cleaning staff and when I called the front desk, the response was more disbelief than immediate response and compensation. Again, the manager never reached out to me about my issues (cockroaches, trash, broken electrical outlets)

    Hotel could use some renovation, but it was convenient for my purpose. The staff was friendly and the room was as clean as you would expect a hotel room to be. 2 major needs: the toilet seats need to be upgraded to larger size and the hot water needs to be regulated better. I had to take my showers in phases as I waited for scalding water to subside every 30 seconds or so.

    This place was great. The room was clean and tidy. The bed/pillows were comfortable. The breakfast was one of the better I have had, the inclusion of croissants and french toast sticks made it better than most hotels I've stayed in. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is a good sized refrigerator in the room and the pool looked nice (too bad it was raining.) The location is close to a wide variety of restaurants and the UCF campus. The only drawbacks I found was that the WiFi could be improved and the room could use a microwave, there is a microwave in the lobby but I prefer the convenience of one in the room.,

    This hotel was an excellent choice as the location was near Orlando Sanford International Airport just a hop and skip away. The hotel looks nice and is very clean.

    After booking on hotels.com and getting my confirmation it seemed the only room left was a smoking room. I was afraid it would be like a giant ashtray, but it was not. Smelled ok, clean, comfy bed, great pillows. Not the Four Seasons - but for the price point it was just fine.

    « Understaffed - Dirty linens - Noisy »

    Short Staffed - Was the only one in the lobby, waited 15 minutes for the only staff member who was on the phone trying to find a reservation in the system to cancel it for someone who "just made it". The caller should have been referred to the online or national call in reservation system. The hotel was sold out - perhaps Management should have thought to have more than one person on staff until midnight perhaps? Dirty Bed Linens - Once in my room, was disgusted to find that one of the beds obviously had not been changed with new sheets. - Luckily it was a double queen room and the other "appeared" clean. The green bed covers were filthy and torn. Will not be staying at a Best Western again. Told the agent at the front desk who apologized and removed a nominal amount off the check. Travelling on business - so that really doesn't make much of a difference to me. Noisy Air Conditioning - When the under-the-window air handler came on, it sounded like an Chevy Suburban on at fast idle.

    « Nice staff, but disappointing room »

    The staff was very nice, but one of the beds in the room I was staying in was messed up. If you sat on the edge of the bed, it would start to go off balance, so you couldn't just sit on the edge. The other thing that bothered me was that my initial deposit, which was only $25, was not returned to my bank account for almost 3 weeks. That is way too long to credit someone's account. Everything else was fine with the stay.

    I booked through hotels.com for a pet friendly suite. When I arrived I had been downgraded from a suite to a room without reimbursement and told the pet was $50. instead of the $20 I was quoted. The staff made no effort to correct the errors upon check-in and only the next morning at check-out did they reimburse the extra $30. pet fee after I showed them the costs clearly made available in the room. I suggest you go to travelzoo.com to find a great rate on a much finer, well located hotel in Orlando.

    The facility is very well located right off the interstate. While it's not the Four Seasons, it seemed to be clean and well kept. However, I have 2 quibbles. 1-Our housekeeper didn't speak a word of English, and didn't seem interested in finding a translator. 2-Our toilet made a flushing noise every 10 minutes or so in the middle of the night.

    « Our room reeked of urine! »

    Well, where do I start. Our experience started with checking into the hotel. My mother had booked this room for us for the Christmas holiday. We arrived to try to check in and they said they needed an authorization form and a copy of the credit card and photo ID of the person who booked the room. We did not have that information. I had to call my mom and have her drive over here and meet us to give them all the information. Come to find out the room was never paid for, her credit card that she entered on the website was just holding the room. So what is the point providing a credit card if it's not going to be charged and paid in full? Upon arrival it had seemed that they had just prayed Febreeze to cover the musky pungent smell of the damn carpet. As the night went on the smell of urine became more evident. Not a very clean room and I would not recommend this hotel to anyone i know.

    Hotel was nice, staff was nice, just be careful if you use a debit card to reserve your room they will charge the cost of the room plus a $25 deposit as a preauthorization and then charge the cost of the room to your card when you check out and start the process to refund the pre-authorization (which takes the bank 3-5 days to post) so be prepared to have this extra money not available for a week or don't use a debit card.

    « Welcome to the Worst Western Orlando East Inn »

    The hotel states on their website that they have a late check in guarantee. We arrived around midnight and we were told that our room was sold to someone else. 4 months in advance I booked 2 queen beds for me and my son. I was told the only thing we could have was a king and a pull out. I would have left but it was after midnight and I had my son with me. I don't know how you could call this a hotel. This was a motel. On our way to the room, we see a guy in only his pajama bottoms trying to climb through a window. I needed to get my son into the room asap. I opened the door and the musty pungent smell attacked my nose. I checked out the bathroom and it was clean. Thank god I brought shampoo. There was a tiny bottle of shampoo that wasn't enough for Tinkerbell to use. The sheets looked clean along with the towels. i took off my shoes and the carpet was damp. This was starting to turn into a nightmare. I don't think we slept more than an hour or so because the beds were so uncomfortable especially the pull out. Between the smell, the damp carpet and the uncomfortable sleeping accommodations , you might say it can't get worse.. but it can. We got up at the crack of dawn to get the hell out of there and wanted to try the free breakfast. We were told that there would be omelettes and sausage and scrambled eggs etc. There were no scrambled eggs and sausage. there was skinny strips of greasy bacon and a yellow thing flipped in half that I think they thought was an omelette but on what planet? An omelette had things in it like cheese or ham or something. I think it was powdered eggs but only they know what it was. My suggestion (my 65,000 readers + know , I tell it like it is) to stay away from this place. I tried getting a refund from the hotel but they said because I stayed there, there would be no way they were giving me back the money, even in part. They did not honor their own guarantee. Thank god Expedia stepped in and made good on it. Expedia gave me back the money even though the Best Western refused. Bravo Expedia for taking care of your customers. The establishment should be called The Worst Western .

    « The traffic noise RUINED our trip »

    We got room 201. DO NOT accept any rooms in that part of the hotel. The traffic noise kept my 16 year old and I up all night. It was terrible. We got no rest, slept in fits and starts, were constantly awakened by crotch rockets, big trucks, and what sounded like cars without mufflers. I would have requested a different room, but we didn't get to the room to go to bed until 9 p.m. and we just wanted to sleep. If I had realized what a slow motion nightmare we were headed for, I would have bothered to switch. We missed breakfast due to sheer exhaustion, so I have no idea how that was. The pros of this hotel: our room was one of the cleanest rooms I have ever had at a hotel. The wifi was the fastest I have ever had at a hotel. The staff were all very nice. We were super glad we had HBO because that is what we watched all night. I had really hoped to have the breakfast, but we wound up having to spend money on lunch after we checked out. We were so tired the next day, we skipped the 2nd day of the tech convention we were attending and visiting a couple of the colleges we were going to visit since we had a 3 hour drive home and I was concerned about driving since I was so tired. So overall, this hotel pretty much missed the point of what a hotel is, which is a place to get a good night's sleep. I invite the CEO of Best Western, or at least the manager of this hotel, to sleep in room 201 and see how they do. I bet they would install a sound machine at the very least to block out some of the noise.

    Ive stayed at this location four different times over the last few years, and I must say that it has gone down a notch over that time. The rooms are clean and the beds sleep great, but my room this last time had a few maintenance issues. Also, there seems to be more 'riff-raff' at this hotel than in the past; not sure what's up with that. I know of at least once that the police should have been called. The staff is friendly and helpful.

    The Best Western Orlando East was a pleasant surprise. I looked for economy but found a comfortable, clean home away from home for a business trip. The staff were friendly and efficient. The breakfast buffet featured scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, biscuits with gravy, Belgium Waffles and more. Pleasant touches like a well made bed and artistically folded towels made the business trip more relaxing.

    « Great breakfast »

    We do a fair amount of traveling. Are very interested in clean, comfortable lodgings with a good start to the day with a great breakfast included in the room rate. The need to stay was unexpected, but a delight. No complaints, except for the rain, which they have no control over. Wonderful stay.

    Very clean, simple place. I have never stayed at a motel / hotel as nice accepting large dogs . Room was very clean and staff very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise. What a value and pleasant stay.

    « Sketchy place... »

    Not recommended for women alone. I am a mom staying with daughter to visit UCF. It is a motel, not hotel and I did not feel safe, even in the room. Mold around tub where it was over caulked, gaps around entry door where bugs can enter and very damp smell. I felt the need to put table & chairs in front of door as a barricade. Very noisy too.
