My son and I stayed here while moving his twin brother into the dorm at UCF. Overall the experience was excellent; with only a few minor issues. The staff was excellent....friendly, smiling and very helpful; front desk manager Claudia went above and beyond by giving me some tickets she personally had for paintball; she was not going to use them....

We booked two queen beds for 3 adults paying for 3 adults. At check in, they wouldn't give us 2 queens, but swapped to a king with pull out bed. Front desk terrible and would not honor the confirmed reservation. Then the room did not even have bedding for the pullout. Two calls to front desk to get bedding. Turns... More

This Holiday Inn was insanely comfortable for my parents and I. We got the standard double bed room, and it was so spacious unlike most standard rooms we've stayed in. Everything was so new, the decor was unbelievable, the television was larger than in most hotels. We were there for a UCF visit, so we didn't really get to explore... More

As an IHG member, I've stayed at more Holiday Inns than I could count. This is by far the best one! Modern and affordable, the renovations make this look like a 4 star hotel. Wish all Holiday Inns looked like this. Check out the pics of inside my room, you'll see why

We've stayed a few times at this property and it's a good consistent value. If you're looking for a clean hotel that has a great location near UCF, look no further. The freshly baked chocolate chip cookies on check in are amazing.

Stayed here for one night for work and I will be hoping the travel department at the office doesn't book me here again.
