“A Great Hitel Near The Villages”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

This is one of the nicest Holiday Inn Expresses that we have stayed in. The hotel is in a beautiful treed area east of The Villages. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast is basic with coffee , juices, make your own pancakes and fruit. The staff at the front desk was knowledgeable and accommodating. We stayed here to visit a couple that lived in the west area of the mammoth adult community of The Villages. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in this area.

Great stay, Pet Friendly which is very important in fact since we arrived with doggie and had told them during our reservations, we weren't even charged the $35 per stay fee. So tell them upfront. Awesome. Breakfast was a good choice of foods, nice selections. All staff we encountered were so friendly. Clean room, what else do you need!

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor and was convenient for us even with the Dog

I stayed here for business while waiting on a group that was at a nearby youth camp for a few nights with a bus. The Hotel has an adequate parking lot for buses. My room was great. I was happy there was a guest laundry room there. The Hot breakfast is great but needs to have a rotating variety of hot items by the day. It gets boring of not having variety on multi day stays. I had to go to Perkins to get a different breakfast which was not bad. I would recommend this hotel.
It is also in walking distance to a shopping center, dining, Publix Supermarket and a movie theater. Also there is a Hertz neighborhood rental agency nearby. The Shopping center is in front of The Villages which is what I call "The Golden Ghetto" which has homes for the retirees, Golf Course and other activities. You can even have your custom made golf cart there. Never saw so many golf carts in my life.
If you are driving around Florida using the Toll roads in your own personal car, I would strongly advise getting a Sunpass because some of the exits of Fla. Turnpike do not have a human toll booth collector anymore. Also note this property is far from Disney. Over 1 plus hour away depending on traffic. The Beaches are over 1 hour and 45 minutes away minimum depending on which beach you go to.

I was initially going to write a poor review starting with feeling as though the pillows were stuffed with handfuls of cottonballs, but then I decided that was because I was grumpy checking in at 2:30am. Clean hotel and rooms, very friendly and knowledgeable staff, hot breakfast, and within walking distance of one of the village squares and restaurants.

We wanted a clean reasonably priced room close to Disney and we found it in this Holiday Inn Express. The room was clean and spacious. The breakfast was very good too. We will definitely use this Holiday Inn again.

What a great hotel! The rooms were clean and had everything you need. The staff was fabulous! The only complaint is hallway and elevator carpet is a little spotty and the outside grounds by the back door could use some TLC. Will be back when we close on our house!!
