I have never stayed in a Holiday Inn; never mind staying outside of the "disney resorts." I found this hotel by my AAA representative. From the moment we pulled up, Alex, the bellman made us feel welcome. He is an asset to the hotel. His personality was refreshing! I checked in @ 0900 and our room was ready. The package I purchased included two adult breakfasts and a $25 gift card, and free self parking. I was able to obtain the vouchers for the breakfast and the parking, but getting the gift card was tricky.
I was told that a manager was unavailable and to come back later and it would be ready. Our room was clean, the hotel was clean. I returned later that evening after being in Disney all day, only to find out, the gift card was not there and that I "just missed" the manager. I was asked to return the next morning. This was a little tough, but I was given the gift card. As I was reading through the hotel informational book, I was surprised to read "if you have an issue, please call the front desk and ask to speak to a manager." Not sure why the gift card was not presented to me at check in.
Our breakfast was included for two adults; however, we had to purchase 2 days of breakfast for the 3rd adult staying. The breakfast was very expensive. The buffet was good, but not worth $17 and if you wanted to have either the waffle bar or omelet bar with fruits, toast, ect, this was $12.95. The first day, the breakfast was not explained too well. I did not order juice ($2.95 for 8oz), only to find out the next day that it was included. after breakfast the second day, I found out that we could have ordered off of the menu; this was never offered to us.
I will have to say that the man making the omelets is out of this world.... Feelix needs to be in a higher position; his personality set the stage for an excellent day, despite the rain that was heading our way. The omelets were wonderful. Amelia was also wonderful. The staff was friendly and kind (outside of the front desk).
Next time, I go to Disney, I will stay here again. There is a free shuttle every 30 minutes to the various parks, and if you take a right outside of the parking lot, there is numerous chain restaurants to eat in...
