“Very Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

This hotel is very nice. The location to Disney is great. Their shuttle bus doesn't go very often, so have your own car. The hot tub is a nice touch.Most hotels in FL. don't have hot tubs. The pool was a little to cold for me. But, it did look nice. Melissa at the front desk is a very good worker. I talked to her a few times while I was there. Aslo, Bonnie at the park/ticket desk is a nice and friendly lady to chat with. The only thing I didn't like is.... I left a tip on my bed for housekeeping on Saturday and the room was cleaned. We stayed in Palm Coast on Sat. night. Sunday Tina(housekeeping) leaves me an envelop for a tip. The room wasn't even used. I felt that was poor taste. I look forward to going back.

Room Tip: I booked this hotel on priceline for $50 per night. But, I think you might get a better price by che...

This was the second time I have stayed here and loved both times. The hotel is opposite Old Town so after a busy day at the parks it was nice to have a walk around and visit the bars and restuarants. The only complaint I would have is on the most recent stay we were the last room in the block which was near a generator ( i think it was the aircon main unit ) which was loud all through the night and a little annoying. The rooms were very clean and we had a terrific view over Old Town. We would certainly stay here again - ideal for families, couples, anyone!.

Manager at the Desk is very helpful. It was a late night check-in for me after a long flight from Singapore. He welcomed me with a bright and big smile that instantly refreshed me. Definitely going back again.

The room is good and clean and sufficiently big for a business traveler like me with 2 queen beds. The feeling of the room was cozy. The room was nicely decorated.

The bathroom is clean and nicely ventilated. Love it.

Got room for free with IHG BRG but based on Tripadvisor reviews was not expecting much. I just needed a place to stay for 1 night so the drive home from a seaside vacation in Melbourne would not be so long.
This hotel and the room assigned were lovely and a very pleasant surprise. I kept telling my husband to not expect much based on the reviews I read. Got upgraded to a deluxe corner room overlooking the pool - wonderful (I am a priority club member but for a free night was not expecting any special considerations.) Room was huge. Only very minor complaints. The bathroom I think is the smallest bathroom I've ever seen - since only for 1 night not a huge big deal. Also the upholstery had a few stains on it but I'd say that's the case with 95% of the hotels I've stayed in. I would definitely stay here again as a paying guest (online price was reasonable) and would recommend it to others without hesitation. Ignore the bad reviews.

We love to stay on property down at Walt Disney World, but depending on the time of year, sometimes the rates are just more than we can afford.

We have stayed at this Holiday Inn location at least a dozen times and we've always been thrilled with the level of service provided. The staff are genuinely glad we're there and it really shows.

The on-site restaurant is so convenient too. There is something for everyone and the prices are reasonable. And, if you play too late at the theme parks, there is a 24-hour McDonald's right next door!

The rooms are fabulous as well. We were in a Kids Suite where there are bunk beds and a queen bed separated by a wall so you have some privacy. The kids even have their own TV! Some of these rooms have a newly remodeled bathroom and it's really big now. That was my only downfall before, and now they've fixed it! Woo Hoo!

You will be real happy with your stay here if you're looking for caring staff, and clean, spacious rooms with all the comforts of home...all within just a couple miles of Walt Disney World!

We had planned on staying for 6 nights and booked through Priceline, we were a little nervous because the reviews were mixed!
We unexpectedly arrived a day early ( 3 am in fact) they happily helped us check in for an extra day and quickly since we were exhausted and drove all night! The clerk gave us a room we could stay in for the remainder of our stay without moving and gave us a rate as close to our Priceline one as he could!
I was nervous since some reviews said the bathroom was small and dirty!! This room was perfect CLEAN AND BUG FREE!! the hallways were tile and washed daily and we were there for a week! The pool was fabulous and staff and food was fine! The housekeeping cleaned great and even fixed my sons stuffed animals different each night he was excited to see each day!
PLEASE DON'T BE SCARED BY BAD PICKY REVIEWERS! This hotel was inexpensive and clean as many towels as we needed they even mailed our postcards back home for us!

Te bottom line is our stay GREATLY ENHANCED our vacation!!

Thanks
