Stayed here on the first night of a Disney trip when our preferred property was booked. This hotel is getting pretty dated and needing some remodel work. But the pool worked for our needs and parking was free. It is a very quick drive to Disney but too far to walk. The staff was very nice. We left before the... More

Rooms weren't up to par as the quality/cleanliness you expect from HIE. Our floor was dirty and desperate need of vacuuming and shampooing. Breakfast was typical for HIE.could use friendlier staff. Overall it met was it was suppose but we're disappointed. The gym was average.

My fiancee and I stayed here for our 4 year anniversary earlier this year and were absolutely let down. When i made the reservation i was told there would be a mini fridge in our rooms, which there wasnt (good thing we had just bought perishables before checking in. Not.).

My fiance and I stayed here for 3 nights for a quick Cali getaway and enjoyed our stay. My only issue is there not being a fridge or microwave in the room which will probably deter me from staying here in the future, too big of a pain to keep getting ice and dragging the cooler around. The pool area... More

This is a traditional Holiday Inn property. The staff was friendly and efficient. The lady in charge of the free breakfast was maticulous in keeping the area well stocked and clean. The beds were comfortable and rooms well kept and clean.

We booked this hotel through Getaway Today and loved that the room rate included free breakfast and free parking daily. We stayed 4 nights, 12/26-12/29 in room 316 which was on the 3rd floor, down the hall and overlooked the pool. It was quiet all night, very clean and exactly what we needed after fighting the crowds all day at... More
