Property in a good location especially for Universal and access to I-4. Breakfast was good. Room was clean, air handler filter probably needed to be changed. Parking is not ideal with only one access to the entrance of the building, but I liked the 'one way/one way out' for security purposes. Arrived after dark so handicap parking was not noticable. Not much parking close to entrance. Our room door hung up on the carpet so you had to physically push/pull the door closed.

Reasonable hotel close to Universal Studio

Pros: Location and price
Cons: It might be nice to have an afternoon shuttle. The breakfast could be improved.
Location: Great location for a Universal Studios visit.
This hotel served our purposes very well. It was reasonably priced, the room was spacious (we had a Family Suite), and it was just down the street from Universal Studios which was where we were spending our time while we were in Orlando. While we didn't walk - you can if you want to. There is a sidewalk all the way to the entrance. The shuttle service to and from the park was very good. I had read some negative reviews about this, but we had no problems at all. The breakfast was like most hotel breakfasts, not great but certainly adequate. The staff were friendly and very helpful. There are a number of restaurants right next to the hotel plus a Walgreens and a Starbucks.

Best Western Plus Universal Inn is Awesome

Our experience was superb. From GM Sam till the room service lady everyone was really cooperative. The counter lady Carla was really plesant and cooperative. For free shuttle i suggest one thing that in case the person is not present when shuttle arrives but his name is there on the register then shuttle guy should ask counter person to check that person so it wont be missed. I missed it one time just by seconds n then have to call uber.

Universal's Halloween Horror Nights

Pros: clean clean clean safe proximity to Universal amenities around hotel
Cons: Nothing for my stay.
Location: Extremely close to Universal's front door. Many restaurants and Walgreen's within walking distance, share a parking lot and easy access to main roads
We are from Tampa and we stayed at the Best Western Plus Universal for one evening to attend Universal's Halloween Horror Nights. The hotel desk person was friendly and informative, she was very busy at the time we arrived with other guests, arranging transportation and answering the phones. She quickly checked us is, no more than 15 minutes, I had pre-booked online so I just needed to sign and provide my ID and CC. The room was just as it shows on the pictures from the website. Clean, well maintained, no mold or broken items. We had a microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker in the room. We were in room 226, this is great room. It is the last room on the floor directly next to the stairs and was very quiet and private. We stayed on a Wednesday night and the free shuttle to Universal ran at 8 & 10AM and 8 & 10PM only. This is not a problem however, because you can walk to from gate from the hotel. We did not realize how close we really were and took a $10 cab ride to the park. We opted to walk home after Halloween Horror Nights ended at 1AM and there was a very well-lit, safe, direct and short path that took us right back to the hotel. I would suggest walking to anyone that can do it. It took us, 2 healthy adults at a leisurely pace, about 20 minutes. It is not a strenuous walk at all. The continental breakfast was fantastic in the morning and the ease of getting back to the highway to head home was effortless. We will definitely be staying here again!

Nice hotel close to Universal Studios

Decent price, free breakfast, clean quiet rooms, about mile walk to Universal City Walk. Free shuttle but it only runs 4 times a day. Overall not a bad stay, would stay there again.
