“Excellent Family hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We stayed here after a day at LEGOLAND. Close to the park, beautiful hotel, comfy beds, nice big bathroom. Nice and quiet. We especially like the new key card system, where you just wave the card in front of the door to your room, the pool door, the gym, etc. Staff was so friendly!! The restaurant down stairs is gorgeous, clean and good value for the menu. Each booth has it's own TV that you can change your own channels and watch while you eat. We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: any room above the second floor, and you get a beautiful view of the rolling hills and glades of Cen...

Stayed three nights, clean room, comfy bed, staff was super nice and helpful. Food from restaurant isn't bad, just nothing special. The kids eat free certificates were nice though. Good stay for visiting Lego Land. I'd stay again.

We loved this place from the time we hit the front desk until we left. The girl at the desk Jennifer was very good. She answered every question that I normally ask in the first minute without me having to ask (a first for me). Simple questions like your room is..., you internet code is..., breakfast starts at....Our only gripe was that this was not a Holiday Inn Express which meant that breakfast was not free and they did not have those great sweet rolls.

What a great hotel! Staff was amazing! They really made us feel at home!!! I would recommend this hotel 100%!!! We stayed here for the Ironman weekend and they even accomodated a 4am breakfast on race day. The TV's at the restaurant came in very handy! The staff, from everyone at the front desk to everyone at the restaurant was extremely friendly! Hotel has also great restaurants at walking distance but we loved eating at the Hotel restaurant due to great food, service and calm atmosphere!!

This week, our family of 5 traveled several hours from Florida's East Coast for the sole purpose of visiting legoland. We need a decent, convenient, and safe place to stay the night...This Holiday Inn proved to be just that! We walked to Red Lobster for dinner and I used the hotel business center to print Lego tickets that I had purchased on-line. We had no interest in using the mini pool on site. I took other peoples' advice from the above reviews and skipped the free breakfast all together...We went to IHOP a few miles down the road and ate a great breakfast. When a family of 5 is about to embark in a day of touring a theme park- the last thing I need is to start off with a junky breakfast just because I got a coupon for kids to eat free. That is NEVER worth it.... I recvd a small discount by using my AAA membership. There is a coffee maker, hairdryer and fridge in the room. The shampoo, conditioner, and lotion was Bath&Body Works.... It was inexpensive and exceeded our expectations.
We stayed on the 5th floor - I think this helps avoid the sounds of children constantly running up and down the halls.....

Was pleasantly surprised with our entire stay. I was not expecting much from a Holiday Inn but it was a great room. We will definitely stay there again the next time we visit Legoland.

The only complaint I did have was the parking. Do not get back late to the hotel you WILL NOT find a spot. Between the other hotel and the Outback there is no parking.

My colleague and I came to the Sun&Fun Aero Exhibition and selected this hotel as it was cost effective.

The room I was allocated was excellent, it had a large bed and separate working/lounge area. The only negative I could find was that the air conditioning was poretty noisy.

The bathroom had a huge shower, and good quality flow from the showerhead, very nice after a warm day to cool off and be ready for the evening. There was plenty of space to lay out toiletries so ideal for a couple.

The WiFi was free and good, had no proplems with connections and quality of signal.

The only food we had in the hotel was breakfast and this was sufficiently varied ot make it a pleasure eating here each morning.

We did have an evening drink after work and I cannot praise highly enough the two members of staff we dealt with regularly. Susan Runnels and RobinLyn Janiszewski were fantastic. They are worth their weight in gold.

Not only were they very personable and friendly, but they assisted us greatly in selecting very good local restaurants for our evening meals, but when in the bar, they were happy just to talk to us. They are a great credit to the Holiday Inn organisation.

When we need to return for the show next year, I know exactly where I will be staying, and that is high praise indeed.
