I never sleep well on vacation but the beds at the Holiday Inn maingate were amazing. I prefer a softer bed so if you like a hard bed don't stay here. We had the kids suite with the bunk bed and it worked perfectly for us. The room was comfortable and nicely furnished. The bathroom could have been a tad... More

We booked through Virgin and were happy with our 2week stay here. We had a Kids suite on the 7th floor and our children liked the bunk beds and their own TV. We found it to be a great base on a budget. Everything clean and the beds and pillows very comfortable. Bathroom was small but totally adequate and shower... More

We stayed at this hotel last year for the Girls Disney Soccer Tournament at Wide World of Sports and our stay this year just seemed better than ever. The hotel was very, very clean and well kept and it was booked to full capacity. The beds were probably the MOST comfortable we've ever slept in in a hotel setting. The... More

I do have to disagree with many of the comments concering the staff and management. We were able to check in much eariler than the designated check in time and were upgraded to a bigger room.

It's pretty bad when your bathroom smells of mildew. Management needs to look into there cleaning staff. The floors in my bathroom looked like they haven't had a good scrub in awhile. Black mildew in the shower. My bed linens had someone's hairs on them. Walls are thin. Air/heating units are very loud. Hotel surely needs updating. The only good... More

We got a good deal to stay there, but it wasn't worth it. The front desk staff was rude and unhelpful. We were met with a horrible smell when we got off the elevator. On the first night our toilet stopped up. When I went to take a shower, there were other people's things hanging from the back of the... More

Pricey hotel, where you can stay if you don't spend much of the day here. We had a familiy-room, but found it very small, and not even close to normal american hotel rooms in size. Also the overall standard of the rooms are poor, but good enough if you don't spend too many hours on the hotel.

When traveling to the Kissimmee/Orlando area we usually stay at the Holiday Main Gate East. The front desk istaff is friendly, the day manager polite, accommodating, and effective, the rooms are clean, and the price is reasonable.
