“Quite a nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

This is a very nice place to stay. It is large, with more than 400 rooms. As with many Holiday Inns we have experienced, it shows its age just a bit, but not to distraction or discomfort. Convenient to I-4, it probably is the cleanest one we have enjoyed. The friendly staff seemed to be constantly mopping, sweeping, wiping down,etc. Ample free parking, and, blessedly, quiet, even though our room was on the first floor not too far removed from the pools and playground, and there were lots of teenagers around. We asked at check in for a quiet room , and they delivered.

Free WiFi worked well in our room and in public areas, and the fitness center was adequately equipped and very clean. Our "standard" room did not come with a micro or fridge, although a micro can be rented. Some other rooms, presumably, are so equipped.

A pleasant surprise was the high quality of the food. While Pizza Hut has a small operation in the food service area, the restaurant itself is part of the hotel, and puts out three quite ample buffets per day with a good range of offerings. Not your ordinary hotel/motel food by any means, and thereb is an apparent willingness to at least try to take care of some individual needs, if someone has a dietary restriction. The servers in our dedicated dining area could not have been more pleasant or helpful. We were participating in a week-long adult continuing education program, taking our included meals in the hotel. All members of our group were complimentary of the freshness, quantity, and range of food selections.

Great trip! Amazing stay in every way. Such a great hotel for the price! There are tons of cheaper hotels in Orlando but none better for the price of this one.

Room Tip: I prefer to be in the front building.

The staff was very accommodating and the room was nice as well. You will be hard pressed to find better value in the Disney area.

Stayed in the Kids Suite which overall was a pretty good. We were not expecting 4 star quality at a Holiday Inn and the overall stay was pleasant and I would definitely recommend or stay there again. The hotel staff (front desk, bell hop, maid service) were all very nice! The room offered plenty of space. The beds were comfortable - soft. If you like a firm bed you may not like them. The bathroom (shower/toilet) was very small but if you are not to modest, just leave the door open! LOL The beds were comfortable and the A/C was just right - not too cold/hot or not noisey - some reviews complain about the A/C but ours was just fine. The refridgerator wasn't very cold but we didn't use it anyway. Parking was a little bad - the hotel was booked up the weekend we were there so we had to park out by the street (within view of our room) but I was just being lazy and didn't want to walk after being at park all day. The hotel seemed to be clean and offered a bar, game room, & buffet. We did not eat the buffet (didn't have time) but everything looked good. If you are on a budget and not looking for 4-5 star quality this is a great place. We also received a great rate by calling and not booking online. We saved $35 dollars a night by calling.

Room Tip: Tower one looks over front parking lot & Pool. Tower two looks over pool and back parking lot...

This is a typical "average" hotel. Nothing fancy. OK service. Room smells clean, but bathroom had noticable black mildew stains on cauking around tub. It is nice to have the ability to open balcony doors and sit outside. Pool area is nice. On-site bar was handy, but the bar-staff was not experienced with making drinks. When issues with the room were brough to the attention of the cleaning staff (i.e., only 1 bath towel, trash left in dresser drawers by previous guest, etc.) all issues were promptly resolved with a kind note.

Room Tip: Choices include overlooking the pool or the parking lot. Overlooking the pool can be loud if groups...

Nice hotel but I was in the back tower next to the elevator equipment. I could hear the elevator all night long. There was also a group of kids from Brazil staying on the samefloor. They ran the floor all night and knocked on my door in the middle of the night.

Nice balcony and you could see the Disney Fireworks from it at night.
