"Orlando trip"
November 2019
Great first time in Orlando. Front desk were very helpful! They held onto our luggage before our room was ready to Check in so we could go explore Disney. In the morning they had a desk selling passes to the theme parks. Room was decent nothing extra fancy but good enough. Breakfast was good too. Kitchen ladies cared enough to go around making sure everyone was enjoying it to their satisfaction.

"Terrible! Do not stay here!!"
March 2018
I was so very disappointed by our stay at the Holiday Inn. When I booked it, I was told we would get early park admission. When I check in, no one knew what I was talking about. Park transportation only runs once every hour. I will never return here and suggest you think twice before booking.

"Amazing in time of crisis"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 25, 2020
Well we initially had only booked 2 night stay for quick stop prior to our planned cruise departure in Miami but plans changed at last minute the night we arrived and found out cruise was cancelled due to COVID 19. Luckily we talked to the greatest desk clerk Martin I have ever met when we decided we would just stay couple extra nights in Orlando before heading back home. When we told him the reason and he seen me and my mother were there with our 2 teenage girls, he did his best to get us the best rate possible for the extra nights. He seen how disappointed the girl were and he just started talking and cutting up w/them every time we seen him to where by end of our stay they were calling him their best friend and as teenagers they were saying he was nicest guy ever. He went above and beyond for us which you normally dont get from a hotel desk clerk b/c most are just interested in getting you signed in and on your way. I cant rave enough about how much he made our stay better especially during crisis of everything just starting to shut down in town. He could have easily just been annoyed and uninterested in his guest due to situation going on but he kept smile on and was chipper every time we seen him. He was interested in what we were able to do during our stay and wanted to hear all about it from the girls and they would be so excited to come back to hotel just to tell him. They even asked if we were allowed to tip him b/c they said he definitely deserved it. I appreciate his kindness and all his effort to better our stay 110%! If anyone deserves a raise or promotion it would be this guy!! Well now as far as the hotel itself LOL, the beds are amazingly soft, rooms and facility were clean and the free breakfast was very good w/good variety of items to choose from. Girls loved the view at night of Fun Spot rides lit up from our room window. The free shuttle bus to Universal Studios was great addition to our stay here so we didnt have to pay to park or fight garage traffic. This hotel is very convenient to the Universal parks, other local attractions and many places to eat and shop at. I would highly recommend this hotel.

"Small but clean rooms, hotel lobby looked modern"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed February 23, 2020
The hotel has been remodelled so the lobby, breakfast area and rooms are quite nicely decorated and looked modern. There is a corner selling snacks and drinks and a desk where guests can use the computer which is a plus. However, the lift lobby on each floor hasn't been remodelled so it looked very dated. Room was on average size, good for 2 adults + a small child only. Breakfast ok, could be better if provide more choices of fruits (only banana is offered). One thing could improve further - the wifi speed which is kind of slow.
