We hadn't stayed at a Holiday Inn Express for quite a while, and when our flight was delayed from Chicago to Orlando--causing us to miss a connecting flight and forcing a decision to drive--we were concerned about the additional expense of staying at a hotel. We chose the HIE because of its very reasonable rates and the reviews on Trip Advisor.
[One very minor observation, something that I'm sure was just one of those things: While the room and bathroom were very clean, I picked up the hand cream (part of the toiletries provided) and opened it to use some. Not only had it been used before, but a hair had been left behind. I can see how it would be easy to miss, but perhaps the general rule should be to replace these before the next guest whether the toiletries look used or not!]
The staff member who greeted us was friendly and capable, and we were very happy with our room and with the very ample breakfast the next day. We will definitely think of the HI as a place to stop.
