Average hotel experience. Large and nice rooms. We had booked a family room for four people. When we got to the room however, it was only made up for two people. When we made the front desk aware of this, we were asked to make up the extra bed ourself. This was a bit strange. Very little varation for breakfast.

My daughter and I were looking to be close to UCF for a campus visit. This hotel fit our needs perfectly. The price was right, the room was spotless, and the staff were extraordinarily helpful. Special kudos to Francis and Elena in the breakfast room.

I came to Orlando for a friend's wedding and as a UCF alumni I wanted to stay near the school to visit friends. I loved that the holiday inn express was conveniently located near Waterford lakes and the new publix on colonial, it made getting around much easier. Upon checking in, I was greeted with friendly faces, their entire staff... More

I travel with my husband quite a bit on his business trips. This time he took me with to recover from a series of massive, almost deadly allergy attacks I had suffered at home. He wanted me to be able to rest & recover. Kizzy, one of the housekeepers & her manager Jennifer, changed out my shower curtains to ensure... More

When is the last time you saw the General Manager helping to clean the floors in a hotel? Mr. Grube and his staff - Debrah, Dee, Maya Shantile, Gina and Francis, were very helpful and friendly during our extended stay. Hotel and rooms were very clean and neat. The breakfast service was well above the usual fare. The price and... More

I booked the Holiday Inn Express from May 30-June 1 after reading the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor! The hotel lived up to its ranking and everything went smoothly from check in to check out. I was given Room 410 which was perfect. The room was quiet, away from the elevators, and near the end of the hallway on the... More

Very clean and centrally located for my business trip. Employees were very friendly and assisted me with the question i had. Would definitely stay here again. The lobby and the common areas were nicely decorated and almost seemed new as well as our room.

I like staying at Holiday Inn Express. The room and bed is always comfortable. There was construction going on in the street out front so it was a little messy getting off the street. The free breakfast is always good too.

Facilities in the hotel looks new and modernized. Great free breakfast. Restaurants and Publix right across the street. Quiet place though there was construction on the street at that moment. Recommended!
