Our room was on the 5th floor with a balcony view of the pool. Room smelled a bit musty which is a big turn off for us. Went to the pool and the kids had fun. Applebee's was so so. It also smelled musty. We found the lighting to be dark ...day time as well as night. On a side... More

This is the best Holiday Inn we've ever stayed in and love the expansive resort pool area -- could just vacation here and not even bother with Disney! Room was very nice and very clean and staff was very pleasant. Shuttle service was a plus though need to plan for departure and return times. Applebee's on site which is convenient... More

The room was nice, spacious, comfortable, clean and quiet - all the things you look for in a hotel. It's close to Disney and Universal; we didn't get charged for parking even though there was supposed to be a fee of $15/day; and the pool area is also great and open late. My only two complaints, which bothered me enough... More

We booked this hotel on Hotwire and were not thrilled to see that we were reserved in a Holiday Inn as they are not our favorite. This property was different! Fresh paint, new carpets, and beautiful window treatments in the rooms. Add in easy check in, nice pool with an attached Tiki Bar and a location about 5 minutes from... More

I booked this room on Hotwire. It was supposed to be a 3.5 star property. Luckily the room was cheap. You get what you pay for. The staff was great. I was put in a handicap room without my knowledge. It would have been nice to know due to the fact that I may have wanted to take a bath.... More
