Holiday Inn Orlando SW - Celebration Area
Ranked #40 of 154 Hotels in Kissimmee
Reviewed October 11, 2008

Stayed at this hotel 9 years ago when it was the Travelodge. At this time it was myself, husband and two teenage boys. We loved it then so when we decided to return to Florida (my husband and I were accompanying our friends on their honeymoon) I had no hesitation in booking this hotel. I know it changed companies and has been refurbished but it was still the same hotel we loved back then. We initially stayed for three nights, then moved north to St Augustine and Amelia Island (both well worth a visit). After travelling to Georgia and S Carolina we returned to Kissimmee and managed to get the last 8 nights of our holiday at the hotel. The new bride was so terified there would be no vacancies she did not get out of the car until it was confirmed they had two suites for us.
The hotel is in a great area with the Old Town just across the road and the parks also so near.
The staff were all so friendly especially Vanessa the receptionist, who gave us a lesson on how to get our eyebrows perfect, Thomas and Xiomara in the restuarant who served us every day and always had time for a chat. (PS if you are fed up with the buffet breakfast the hotel had nice and cheap breakfast items you can order separately). We paid only 60 dollars plus taxes for each room which contained a queen bed, usual shower/bathroom, hairdryer, microwave, fridge and coffee machine, only down side was no breakfast included. I would have no hesitation in recomending this hotel to any of my friends.

I just stayed there the second time. My son absolutely loves the bunkbed rooms. My friend stayed in a double room and it was nice as well. All these rooms look practically brand new. The bathroom area is small. The beds are comfy and they have nice bath products by Garden Botanika. The pool has a poolside bar that opens around noon and they have great frozen drinks. They also have a courtyard with pizza hut in the hotel. McDonalds is right next door too!

Everytime I plan on being the area this is where I will stay.

The Holiday Inn MainGate East was recently renovated and has impecible rooms and public areas. We arrived on a Fiday and although they were 100% booked, (it was Cheer Week at Disney)everything was running smoothly. They have a Pizza Hut and A&W in the hotel which were pretty convenient. The room was spacious and very clean. We would definately stay there again.

Booked this hotel through Priceline.com and wasn't to sure about what I was in for until I got there. What a wonderful surprise! First, you're greeted by one of the friendliest front desk staff I have ever encountered. They truly take their time to go over all the details and make any necessary arrangements and accomodate special requests. Next, you arrive at a spacious room with a great balcony! The rooms have very comfy beds, everything is clean, new coffeemakers, hair dryers and iron/ironing board. Great amenities with only one downfall - very small bathrooms. The overall facilities were very clean. Breakfast buffet is not too expensive and food was hot and fresh. Great service everywhere we went around the hotel. I would strongly recommend it for someone wanting to be close to Disney in a comfortable and clean hotel.

Due to my husbands work he travels quite a bit and is a Holiday Inn Platinum Member. We stay at Holiday Inn's and Holiday Inn Express hotels all over the country. We recently took our family of four to Disney and due to our points were able to stay at this hotel all week using points. We were a little apprehensive, since some reviews we read were negative, but we decided to give it a try. Upon check in we were greated by a very friendly woman who made check in very quick. We were upgraded to a Kids suite which has a queen bed and bunk beds. The girls enjoyed the bunkbeds. The bathroom in this room is tight and the sink is outside near the bunkbeds so if you are trying to get ready without waking up the kids, its a bit difficult. The air conditioner was a bit loud but it cooled the room. That being said, we really enjoyed the room, which was very clean. The pool was large, clean, and warm. We were on the 8th floor and never had to wait for the elevators, as some other reviews had suggested. As soon as we pressed it they were there. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Don't be scared off by some of the other reviews, we almost were and would have missed out on this very nice hotel. It is about a mile to the entrance of Disney World, and is on a street with just about anything you may need.
I would not consider this hotel a resort destination, but since you are in Disney you are really not at the hotel that much at all. It satisfied all of our needs. Take a chance I think you will be happy that you did.

we just got home from our stay at holiday inn main gate east, we were booked at the travelodge maingate east orange and because of their reviews changed at the last minute, we were very happy that we had. we had four adults and four children(8, 7, 5, and 3 years old). the floors were clean, bathrooms were nice, beds VERY comfortable, the pool was just right for the kids to cool down after the heat at disney, breakfast buffet was good as well, kids eat with a paying adult, the towels in the rooms are large as well, they try to slip in a resort fee, which we asked to speak with a manager right when we got there and he waived this because we had booked with travel agent and were under the understanding that no other fees were to be charged. you do need to request to have a fridge placed in your room for a fee of 5.95 daily, which we were also not charged.
Beware of taking your own towels to the pool though, we had two stolen and got one back as we were leaving.
we had our own rental which i recommend beacuse the one night 4 of us took the shuttle, we were supposed to be picked up at 9:45 which we were but never got back to hotel until 11:10, this is shared with othe hotels and ours was dropped off last.

Overall we would stay there again if needed, when you are paying for two rooms because of kids this is a great buy!

PS give the help even a dollar tip and they are so thankful!
