“Great location for the parks...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Spent 5 days here with my spouse and another couple. Overall the hotel proper is not going to be confused with a 5 star resort but for the location and the value it was more than adequate. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, ensuring that I received a couriered package expeditiously. Rooms were adequate and the double queens take up most of the space but the rooms with a king have some breathing room. Beds were well worn but still comfortable and the cleaning staff did a great job. The pool/hot tub area was great for relaxing and enjoying a cigar in the heat. Didn't partake in the restaurant. Location is perfect, minutes from Disney, 12 minutes to Sea World, and a few minutes more to Universal. Was it perfect? No... would I go back? Definitely, no reason not to. Only real negative comment is that the walls are a bit thin and noise travels easily through them and the adjoining room doors, even when closed.

Room Tip: Pool side on either of the towers would be recommended.

Holiday Inn is very close to all of the area theme parks and restaraunts. The staff here was extremely helpful and friendly anytime anything was needed. Ezequiel at the front desk was great at providing me all of the information that I needed for my stay. Miguel in the food court was always happy to see us each morning when my family and I got breakfast.

The staff at this hotel were GREAT! The rooms were clean and we had a great view from our room. Kids liked the bunkbeds. When we needed some amenities brought up to the room the staff was prompt in getting them to us. The restaraunt had good food and the service there each morning was also good.

Overall the hotel is very dirty, the air conditioning is extremely loud and the rooms are very small this hotel is out dated. It seems to have great specials but after you add the service fee per night for $9 it's not much of a bargain, this place is a total dump. My family and I wanted to stay a few extra days as our time share was only for 7 days we were visiting the disney parks we stayed here one night then went to the art of animation which was a much better choice for $25-40 more feeling clean, getting good rest and being on disney property is totally worth is for us.

We stayed in a junior suite (room 1802) over Memorial Day weekend. Great room! A full sized refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee pot, sleeper sofa and a king-sized bed. There was nothing to complain about! We were staying there for a soccer tournament and Disney's Wide World of Sports was less than ten minutes away. This was a great location and this room in particular fit all our needs.

Holiday Inn is our destination as business people, and our home away from home. You are invariably guaranteed comfort, security, peace, an excellent front desk, and compliant GM's. We have high expectations. My grievance with an issue of this stay was that upon checking in, there were no hand carts in the lobby. Danielle, the Asst. Front Desk Mgr. graciously rectified the situation, and we had a wonderful rest of the stay. Great pool, very good fitness room, excellent front desk, and a very good breakfast (not continental) with easy access to restaurants, shopping etc.

Room Tip: Nice balconies on poolside overlooking the pool.

Stayed May 23 - 28 nice hotel. Friendly staff, clean rooms. We had a nice breakfast at the hotel, good selection and the staff were very helpful. All the food from Pizza Hut (on site) was very good.
Pool was very clean as well as area around pool. Right across the street is "Old Town" which is well worth spending a Saturday afternoon and night for a great car show. There are carnival type rides for small kids & thrill rides for older ones and adults.
We used the free transportation(shuttle Bus) for the Disney (free).
it was $15 to go to Universal
Lots of restaurants within walking distance.

Room Tip: our room was behind the elevator bank which would bother you if you went to bed early.
