- Go early to the breakfast , otherwise you will have a long waiting time for the main and express restaurants
Otherwise very nice hotel for family to enjoy , and the staff are helpful if you face any problem or when you have any concern

"No rest for the weary"
June 2018
The hanging lampshade fell on me when I was trying to find the switch to turn it on; turns out it's a different kind of switch camouflaged in with tv plug in stuff;
Also the walls are paper thin and although there are quiet hours listed, little kids don't tell time and don't always sleep when they should. The room next door had The tv on at least until 11pm and the little kid was up by 5:30 am and I could hear the tv words as well as the kids conversation through the walls.
The wet bar hot and cold handle is funky and I would guess needs tightening. The floor has some poor craftsmanship with gaps between the planks; and there was no mention of the weight limit or that the room had bunk beds so I'm sleeping on the couch.
The people I have come in contact here couldn't be more helpful or kind, though. Thankful for that!!

"A bit of a ram-shackle hotspot."
June 2018
PROS: The king bed / room and bunkbeds for the kids were great. Comfy, just the right amount of space for what we needed. The amenities in the room were just right (fridge, microwave, coffee).

CONS: The room would have been great for 4 people who didn't need the super squeaky uncomfortable couch bed. It shouldn't really count as a bed.

The walls are thin and the other guests were engaged in various domestic disputes, and the people above us sounded like they were rolling bowling balls across the floor at 2:00 AM. We had to call the desk, twice.

The free shuttle to the theme parks had a bit of a restrictive schedule and isn't timed for pick-up to allow for the LONG time it takes to get back from Disney on multiple monorails. We missed it once and had to get an Uber.

The check engine light was on the whole time, it had ripped seats, and when it rained, pencil-thick streams of water were soaking passengers in the front rows of seats. Later, I noticed that the outside of the bus is duct taped where it had been busted at some point, so that it was broken wasn't news to them. The TV in the front (old box tv, matches the bus' tape deck) is missing a bolt and bounces around -- one day it will fall and crush someone. The sign up front says "Tips are an important part of our driver's salaries." Maybe.... pay them better?

One night we got home at 8:00 from the parks, it took us 50 minutes in line to order a sandwich at Subway in the marketplace. They only had one person making sandwiches, and nobody attending the cafe that was supposed to be open from 5-10 (but was never staffed.)

The pizza place got our pizza order wrong -- it was a case of putting meat on the pizza called a "veggie land". We were in a building furthest away from the market place, which is a 5 minute walk across the property -- kind of a bummer to have to walk back for a new pizza. Should have checked.

There were SO MANY PEOPLE in the pool that week, there is no way that the chlorine can keep up with the bio-load. I got in once and my legs started itching from the chemicals. So instead, I sat in the hot sun, and stood in line for 30 minutes to get a drink from the pool-side bar, because they only had one bartender.

Again, the pool was so busy there were no chairs available (and they have a lot of chairs) people were basically elbow to elbow. I had to stalk a table at the cafe.

They close the bar at 8, but the pool stays open until 10. So no luck if you wanted a relaxing drink at the pool after a long day at the parks.

There is NOTHING close by if you don't have your own car. No groceries, no restaurants. You're captive to their pizza / sandwich / restaurant / ice cream place.

"From the Front Desk to Check out, Great Stay!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed May 14, 2020
From the start of our visit, Allen at the front desk was accommodating and took his time making sure we got checked in correctly dealing with the particulars of our stay. Members of our party had to make a decision on the fly due to the coronavirus outbreak and they were great at making sure she was able to keep her room. Another huge shout out goes to Chris McDole, the Executive Sous Chef. He did everything in his power to ensure my daughter with Celiac's was well fed and he really took great care of her for our entire seven night stay. She named what she wanted to eat and he made it happen safely for her. He is definitely an asset to their dining department. The amenities were good. I enjoyed the fact that they had a bus to the parks, I liked the restaurant row. It was a well used water park. But it was kept up nicely. There was a small amount of water leaking into our room from the condensing unit, but the people who work at this Holiday Inn really go above and beyond to take care of the guests. I appreciated the bartenders at the pool bar, the girls who do the cabana rentals and the staff at the restaurants. Members of our party took part in the movie night, overall it was a great stay until everything got shut down due to the Corona Virus. My only real complaints are minimal, they do not sell bottle openers. I had to spend $8 on a can opener. Also, it took a few calls to get the lights changed in the bathroom and the fan light working correctly in the master bedroom. Beyond that it was a great stay and had plenty of value.

"Great place to say at Disney"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed April 13, 2020
We stayed here for 15 days with 5 kids (9,7,5,5,3) and 4 adults. The hotel was so clean and they have amazing prices for staying that close to Disney. Everything isn't more then 10 mins away and there are tons of restaurants and shopping right by the hotel. The water park was so much fun and the kids loved having that to break up our activities so they weren't going to a theme park everyday. I highly recommend this hotel if you are going with a large family because they have rooms with bunk beds in them and the rooms are huge.

"New face on an old name - Holiday Inn"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed March 24, 2020
This Holiday Inn is in the process of renovating. It used to be the Nickelodeon. Reasonable price for a nice room, arcade, market area & cool pool! Great for families. The only complaint I had was that the vent did not work in the bathroom. When I told the staff, they said there was only a/c, no vent. Others had reported the same issue. It's a nice break from the theme park madness. Close to parks. In the lobby they will try to get you to join their vacation club. These people were very pushy. We stayed here 2 nights then moved to a much cheaper place. I would stay again.

Only got to stay 2 days with my girls but from check in to check out we had an amazing time! The room was beyond what we expected. Very clean and large. We never felt cramped and there were five of us. The beds were so comfortable I wanted to nap alot!! The pool and slides were well maintained. The lifeguards were awesome with the kids. Props to them!!!! Especially "T" the girl lifeguard. She made my girls feel so special by learning their names and having fun with them. There were lots to do and many food choices you really never have to leave the resort. We will definitely will be back. Thanks for a great time team!!!!
