Stayed here just the one night having flown in close to midnight from Australia. The staff were most helpful even at the hour we lobbed. The room was average in size, cleanish but noise could be heard throughout the night from other guests coming and/or going. For us it was ok as we were only staying for about 8 hours... 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

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

Immediately as I walked in I was greeted by Jared who showed great hospitality and a high level of service while providing the room. Also since I am from NY, he took the time to explain the surrounding establisments so that I could become more familiar with the area which was very much appreciated. The rooms are very clean and...

Fantastic general manager, warm welcome service, clean rooms, great service, good food, great bartender, housekeeping was very friendly and provided enough items for 3 people in our room, front desk was very helpful. This hotel was very accommodating and close to UCF arena. An enjoyable stay! Overall, a great experience!

My stay at this Holiday Inn was pleasant. I didn't use the facilities and was disappointed that no breakfast was provided free although I guess $10.95 for the buffet was OK. I did enjoy the free wi-fi. No problem with the room - clean, comfortable, and quiet. Plenty of parking. Easy to get to UCF locations nearby.
