The hotel was in a great location. The cinnamon rolls at breakfast were terrific! There were many choices. Sausage patties, sausage links or bacon were offered every day, as well as bisquits and gravy. The bed was very comfortable and the view of Universal & the sunset was lovely too!. Very helpful staff! They helped us with restaurant recommendations, cab...

A smile goes a long way to gaining a customer. I got a nice clean room at a great rate last night. The hotel staff was very nice. It was the best night sleep I've had in a long time. I drove all the way from South Carolina. I look forward to doing it again. Thank you

We stayed at this hotel for our family summer holiday and had a fantastic time. Staff were very helpful and went out of their way to make us happy and very comfortable. All we had to do was ask and the attitude was "if we have it, you got it". Nothing was too difficult for them to do to make...

Stayed at this hotel more than 10 times. Good location and always great. Highly recommended and we continue to stay! I always stay here when I'm in Orlando, which is regularly. Never had any issues and front desk has helped with everything needed.

Stayed here one night before our cruise. No major problems. Room was a bit on the small side but clean. Free breakfast was great but we did have trouble finding an empty table. Free internet use in the lobby was nice. Overall, good place to stay. I would stay here again.

We came to this hotel last week from Ohio due to the death of our mother/mother-in-law. The hotel was very nice. The continental breakfast that they served each day was very good with a nice selection of foods to choose from & there was coffee ready 24/7. The rooms were clean (but with a few small ants in the bathroom),...

I stayed at this hotel for one nite because I was unsure how my house that was under renovation was going to react to the potential bad weather predicted.

This Holiday Inn is not like others we have stayed at. The room was really small like a studio apartment. The bathroom has only a stand up shower.
