I read the reviews for this property before booking and I was not disappointed! The staff is as friendly (maybe friendlier) than the times I have stayed at Four Seasons and Ritz Carlton's! They go above and beyond to help in any way they can. The person at the front desk actually hand wrote out directions to UCF for me... More

We traveled to a competition at UCF with a group of high school kids and found the staff excellent. The included breakfast an easy way to get the group going on time both days and the hotel was spotless. The hotel contacted us and is mailing the things we left behind. Disney service and smiles at a Holiday Inn price.... More

We stayed there during our Christmas holiday, it was economical, booked it thru hotwire.com, got a very good deal and had 3 rooms for 3 days. They made it easy, nice location. We enjoyed at the fullest.

My family and I stayed here while attending graduation at the University of Central Florida. I had stayed here last year for another graduation, and had a clean, nice room and good service. Looking back, we must have stayed in a renovated section of the hotel. This trip, my family booked a suite that was labelled "2 Bed 2 Bath".... More

Had breakfast included and this was ok a bit of a let down compared with others it was more holida yinn express. Beware if breakfast is included you need a ticket from reception otherwise... More

We arrived at the hotel at 11:20 PM, and found no one staffing the front desk. It turned out that the sole desk person was busy helping someone in the business center (or whatever that tiny room was, right next to the reception desk). We'd traveled a long way; we were tired; we were hungry; and our take-out food, which... More

Not really sure what stay # this is. We always choose to stay here when we have to go to UCF. It was just an average stay. Cons: running toilet, broken ice machine, soda machines sold out, housekeeping only came by once after a three night stay and we had to call. Pros: clean, comfortable, close to UCF, and Mary... More

You could pay much more, for much less. The staff is top notch (Amber and Hector at front desk, Kathy in the restaurant) as other reviewers have described. The executive level rooms are quiet and there isn't a wait for the elevator. If you have a student at UCF, look into the Friends and Family rate and join the IHG... More
