We drove to Orlando from Florida on the 6th. We barely got into our hotel room (12pm-ish) and we were on a bus to Epcot. After booking a ticket to 'Soarin' at 9.15pm that night we split up, arranging to meet at 8.30pm in ‘England’ to watch the fireworks.



I jumped on few rides but then made my way …

Today is our last day in Orlando, for the minute anyway - I'm working on a 2011 spring return with our friends. By the time we'd showered and eaten breakfast it was 9.15am by the time we made it onto International Drive. We bought a one day I-ride pass at the hotel desk and went to catch the bus. As we were waiting for the I-ride, a mini van …

I think it's a good thing we're shortly leaving hotels for a few weeks. Home cooking will seriously do us some good. We'd like to blame our budget for all the **** we've been eating. Afterall two double cheeseburgers, fries covered in bacon and cheese with a milkshake is cheaper than one ceasar salad. If we were being honest though I think we'd …

By the time we'd changed and finished breakfast this morning it was 9.15am and the park had already opened. We didn't fully know how to get to the park but we knew it was just off I-Drive about 3/4 of the way up. We caught the I-Ride from across the street and we planned to take a taxi to the park. As we pulled up to stop 7 the driver said anyone …

The alarm went off at 8.15am and we both went for breakfast. We had a piece of toast and then snook a muffin and danish back to the room for later. We still haven't got used to eating cakes for breakfast yet. I managed to speak to my dad on skype for a bit while Peter had a shower and then we went to get the I-ride to Aquatica.

    Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN International Drive - Orlando

    Two Thumbs Up Overall!!

    from

    I just returned from my 4 days trip in Orlando. Our flight was delayed so by the time we got to the hotel, it was 2a.m. The check in staff wasn't too friendly but he processed it pretty quickly. But all the other staff are extremely friendly and helped us out with directions and restaurants and stores around the area. Whenever we go in and out, we always got greeted. I was suprised that there was housekeeping everyday. I can't comment about the carpet like other reviews in here. I always bring my own slippers whenever I travel. The location of the hotel is extremely convenient. After the entire day of walking in Disney and Universal, we can just walk next door to the restaurants and gift shops. The only thing that bothers me was the continental breakfast. I read a lot of reviews from other websites and a lot of them comment about the continental breakfast. I was thinking....continental breakfast was one of the few things that can't go wrong. But they're right!! The juice has hardly any taste in it but bitter. The baking goods are soggy. I bought good and juice from the nearby grocery store. I never expect good food in hotels anyways. I really like this hotel overall, I definitely stay in this hotel again when I go back to Orlando

    Checked out early

    from

    I was very disappointed. I made the reservation based on the overall rating for this hotel. It was beyond gross. The carpet stuck to my feet and the bathroom had black mold. We stayed two out of three night and then gave up and checked out early. I couldn't take how dirty it felt. I lost my money on the night I didn't stay but I was glad I left. The price was VERY low for the area (you get what you pay for) but it is worth it to pay more and go somewhere else.

    One of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in for the price!

    from

    I must say that I am very pleased with the assistance I received right from the start. It was the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in for the price! I made two separate reservations for three consecutive nights and was concerned about being able to keep the same room and they made every effort to make sure that I wouldn't have to change rooms at the end of the first night. The room was very clean and comfortable and the noise from the traffic and other residents was minimal and I got a great nights sleep every night of my stay! It was close to everything I wanted to see which was an added bonus! My compliments to the staff for a job well done! I would recommend it to anyone!

    Pleasantly surprised - Most Inexpensive Hotel in Orlando

    from

    The Masters Inn in Orlando is the most inexpensive hotel in Orlando (appx. $35/night). You get exactly what you pay for. The rooms were not special, but were very clean. PERFECT for anyone wanting to spend all day at the Disney Parks and just use the hotel room to sleep and pay VERY little. Here is what I liked about this hotel: the location is great (on International Drive directly off the Bronson Highway and about 15 minutes to the Disney parks), cleanliness of rooms, friendliness of staff,. What I didn't like: considering I paid $28/night I really can't complain, but the 'continental' breakfast could have been a little better.

    Not good enough

    from

    This is one of the tackiest hotels I have ever stayed in. We stayed here one night in March 2005. The building looked nice from the outside and it has a nice pool. It was located just off International Dr, which is a good location. However, the room was a bit unpleasant to me and to my husband. It seemed old, dated, dark, and everything looked well worn. The sheets were so thin they looked like they had been washed a billion times. The bed sagged like it was very well worn. I wouldn't be surprised if it was the same sheets and the same bed that they used when the building was built perhaps 30, 40, or 50 years ago (whenever it was built). It didn't feel clean. While I really can't pinpoint any one thing that was filthy, I still get an unpleasant feeling thinking about it. IT WAS CHEAP! But if I had it to do over again, I would have paid more and enjoyed the experience more.

    Loved Masters Inn

    from

    Great Hotel, great people!

    I will surely come back in my next visit to Orlando.

    Not too bad!

    from

    I booked this hotel as it was the cheapest available through Octopus Travel, since then - and prior to arriving - I had heard some terrible things about it on other websites. So here is my personal review which may set some minds at ease:

    Nothing fancy, but all you really need...

    from

    This budget hotel was a pleasant surprise...clean rooms; good housekeeping; nice staff; very convenient location to I-Drive trolley, shops and restaurants; a well-heated outdoor pool that my daughters and I enjoyed on a chilly day. No frills and very basic, but overall an enjoyable experience. Muffins and danish continental breakfast was pretty good--or IHOP & Denny's are minutes away. And the hotel is affiliated with an excellent taxi co. if you need to hire one.

    It was cheap and convenient

    from

    We booked a room for two nights at $36/night. The location was very convenient. At that price, I knew not to expect star treatment, but we checked in and out quickly with no problems. The place was quiet and the accomodations were clean. It is an older hotel, but let's face it, we didn't go to Orlando to stay in the hotel room. We also enjoyed the fact we could walk to nice restaurants.

    With the money we saved staying at this hotel we treated ourselves to a nice dinner!

    Wish I Would Have Stayed Elsewhere!!

    from

    Well, after sitting in Orlando traffic, we were glad to finally check into our room and take a well-deserved rest. Unfortunately, we had a rude clerk check us in. As soon as we opened the door to our room, you can feel the humidity in the air of the room due to poor ventilation. Once I took my shoes off, the carpet was moist. The sink was dirty as was the toilet. I checked the so called "clean" towels and found a hair on one of the washcloths. Stay away from this place! You are better off spending the extra $75 on a much nocer hotel room!
