"Bit frustrating but good enough to lay your head down."
July 2021
Stayed four nights total for a trip to Universal Studios.

Started bad when we discovered a urine soaked carpet and a dirty filter in the A/C unit. Called lobby and nobody answered. Kept calling and no answer. Had to go down there to talk to them about the issues. Management made it right and actually moved our two rooms to a separate adjoined area (perfect because it was a family trip).

We didn't spend much time in the rooms so we didn't fuss too much. However there were some negatives:

7 guests should mean 7 washcloths (at least). You should not have to share something like that. We had 4 total between 2 rooms.

Onsite Laundry consists of 2 washers and 2 dryers (1 didn't work) for close to 700 rooms. And even with the map it wasn't easy to navigate to find it. It's not labeled on any walls or doors either. Probably the only reason we were able to get our laundry done was because of how obscure it was.

I was supposed to be able to choose a housekeeping option in the beginning but it was never brought up. When we asked for it for the second day they said they would provide full service our last day but never committed to it. We called and they did offer to bring towels which we needed again. We also asked for more TP but they didn't bring it and still never brought it when we called about it. In the end we had to get it from the front desk.

The parking lot was a little dirty. Saw bottles, cans, and other trash in several areas.

No complimentary breakfast as far as we could tell. Don't remember if it was supposed to be included but it should be in every hotel.

Onto some positives:

We used the pool once and it was very warm and clean.

We needed a keycode to get into parking. We also needed keycards to get through a gate and a door before we could even get into the elevator. We were thankful for good security (even though other guests didn't seem to care about leaving things open).

Applebee's is connected and delivers to the room.

Pillows were perfect for us.

Staff was pleasant and seemed nice enough.

"Convenient and clean"
September 2019
We booked our hotel reservation through Tripster and was a very good experience. When we made our purchase there was some additional information required to process the payment so we contacted costumer service and was surprised positively about the service we received. The hotel
Is super clean and very close to the parks in Orlando. The shuttle to Disney World and Universal Studios was a plus!

"Very Nice Experience"
July 2019
We had a very nice experience at the Holiday Inn. The rooms were comfortable and clean. It’s a great family resort with many activities for children. We thought when we start having a family it would be a great place to come again. Our experience was made perfect by the resort transportation. A lady named Christina provides ride service from the hotel and she was absolutely wonderful. Her prompt, reliable and friendly service made us feel cared for and secure during our stay. She was our first call when we needed a ride somewhere and her service company exceeded our expectations. If we return we hope to use her services again. We would definitely recommend this resort and it’s services to others.

"A great place to stay"
April 2019
The staff and location were perfect for our week in Orlando! The room was clean and comfortable and the amenities were wonderful. I was disappointed with the Applebee’s onsite as the three times we were there we had multiple issues, including lack of service (mainly at a half full bar), and lack of ingredients for items on the menu. But overall we would stay again, Just not use the onsite restaurant.

Tip: The shuttle schedule this time of year was spaced out but uber and Lyft were available!
