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. Hotel was in decent shape and the rooms were clean but the walls/door were very thin and did a poor job of acting as a sound barrier. Up all night because of the guests either in the... More

The entire staff did a great job from the moment I walked in until I checked out. The room is large and clean. I was right next to an elevator but did not hear a sound all night. Only disappointment was they were out of cinnamon roll French toast on Saturday morning. Thanks for a great stay!!

The mattress was so old and broken if you did not perch on the edge, you will fall into a canyon that swallows you up. I was there for a multi-day business trip - I was too tired to complain the first night, and got little sleep. Even though I called during the day of day 2 to alert the... More
