I had an opportunity to visit & stay at the Holiday Inn MGE in March (28-31) after a major operation and to make a long story short: "It was like home away from home." I book in advance to make sure I can get a room. This hotel is quite busy and I sometimes have to keep checking for availability; that's how in high demand they are. The hotel staff members are awesome; (and yes I always get folks’ names to know whom I speak to).
Brad Boland, Diana Tobin, Jessica, Chantal & Brittany: Thank you for keeping the MGE hotel operating like a well-oiled engine. You’re all smooth operators and a pleasant, professional staff. Kudos to you all!
I can't stress enough how much this hotel has to offer from a family and business perspective. Their amenities are always operable. The large pool, kiddie pool and hot tub are always clean with more than enough seating & towels available. The gymnasium, kid's arcade & kiddie theater area are always clean and operable. Forgot your toothbrush? There’s a neat gift shop across from the front desk to purchase items from gum to portable luggage. Their in-house restaurant is quick, convenient and good meals. I’ve never had the need or opportunity to reserve their conference rooms but they are quite large and professionally decorated. I have used their local Wi-Fi and internet services.
I took advantage of room service for food deliveries since I mostly stayed in the room and my family went to the parks and shopped in the area. One secret, you're better off eating at the hotel than at the parks if you want to save ALOT of money. One thing we experienced during this stay I must share is when the huge 24 hour McDonald’s restaurant next door had a small fire in the middle of the night. The hotel staff was on point and notified all concerned guests that it would not affect our stay. My little son was disappointed that he might not get his “happy meal” the next day. Well, we were shocked to see that they closed down for about six hours to do some minor repairs to the grill that caught on fire and sure enough they were up and running just in time for lunch. We all know how much small kids are obsessed with happy meals (but mainly the toys).
Once again, the hotel is located in a great area: A convenient bus picks you up to take you to & from the major amusement parks. They are in walking distance to at least 5+ fast-food restaurants, gifts shops galore, a couple of flea markets, Nike Outlet, Walmart, Walgreens. Across the street is Fun Spot & Old Town arcade & amusement parks if you don’t want to go to Disney and the other big parks. On rainy or bad weather days, you still can have a ball inside the hotel with their amenities as mentioned above.
I’m not a paid advertiser for anyone and have no personal or business relationship with this establishment; just a wife and mom who knows how to ensure that my family enjoys their mini vacations as much as possible with great memories. You don’t always have to spend a lot to have a lot (or spend a lot to get good quality service).
