“clean, spacious and great location!”
Reviewed 7 June 2011

booked this hotel because of its ideal location near the universal studios, it's just a 10-15 minute walk away. checked in early and was upgraded to a suite. the layout of the room is great with plenty power outlets and free internet. gym only has a few cardio machines but if you are in orlando you will have plenty of exercise in the theme parks. also has a laundry room for guests which is great if you are staying longer.

When we stepped off the elevator to the second floor, we felt we had been transported back to our college dorm days. Old doors, long ghostly halls, shabby carpet. We were afraid to see the room. Surprisingly, the room was appointed in Hilton fashion. Large, clean and well-appointed. The furniture appeared new and fashionable. Beds were cozy albeit fulls, not queens. Very clean, with frig ample storage. Was not disappointed with room. Halls need work.

first of all, i stay at high quality hotels--typically staying at the 3 on-site hotels at universal (to get the express passes etc) but i typically add a night at this holiday inn. (you get the day before and day after of express passes for every night on-site--so we just stay the 2nd night at the Holiday) You can easily walk to universal from this Holiday Inn (if you can't, you probably cant walk around the parks all day either). This holiday inn is FABULOUS at a fraction of the cost of the universal on-site hotels. If you get a suite it is worth the money with the full refriderator etc. On the bottom floor is the TGIF restaurant which is nice. The room is clean and spacios. I never fill out recommendations, but with this hotel, I highly recommend it, so took the time.

just stayed here for a few nights, very clean hotel with good friendly staff

Rooms were large and the mini kitchen was very useful beds could be a little bigger but not really an issue, free wifi is a nice touch and room service is provided by TGI's.

Pool looked a little dated but again clean didnt have time to actually use it though.

Guest shop is very very expensive and has very rude staff, trying to buy a drink is a very difficult when the attendent is on the phone but there is a wallgreens just down the road so save money and go there

All in all a good value hotel

The purpose of our trip was to go to Universal Studios, therefore the location of this hotel is perfect. It takes about 10 - 15 minutes to walk and it is a nice pathway to get there, it may seem longer on the way back after a day at the park. We never used the shuttle. Pool was clean and never over crowded, great way to cool off after a long day at the parks. Having a restaurant attached is handy. We had a standard double room which had a small fridge it would be nice if they added a microwave, however the room served the purpose for the amount of time you spend in the room awake. Beds were very comfortable. Walgreens just a short walk up the street as well as liquor store and farther up a few fast food restaurants. For us the Hotel provided what we needed, but the internet service was very slow. Our room was on the 3rd floor and had a view of the pool which was very nice. The I-trolley pick up was across the street for a quick and cheap way to get to the outlet shops.

My teenage daughter and I checked into a one bedroom suite at the end of April. Our plan was to spend three days at Universal Studios and one day outlet shopping. This hotel was perfect. Some tips...You can walk to Universal, but after a day of walking we were too tired to walk back to the hotel. A taxi will cost you $5 tip included. You can also take the city bus, #21 which will pick you up at the same spot that you would get on the itrolley (G4) and drop you right at Universal. It was $2. The itrolley doesn't seem to run on a very reliable schedule and it was really hot sitting and waiting for it, especially since you really have to transfer onto the red line to go anywhere. We took the itrolley to the premium outlet at International drive. The itrolley is kind of painful in terms of having to wait, but it does get you where you need to go if you don't have a vehicle. Head towards the Double Tree hotel and you will easily find the Walgreens and a liquor store.Bring at least one small bottle of water with you to the park. It's $3.50 a bottle there. Go to Harry Potter World at dinner time (5:00pm on). We did the big HP ride 5 times over the three days. The line up in the morning is crazy. Go after the little kids are tired out! Spend some time by the pool at the hotel. It is really nice. We had an early evening flight and all we had to do was ask for an extended check out and they were very accommodating. Would definitely go back!

This hotel is right across the street from Univerals Studios Orlando. We had a 1 bedroom suite for 89$ a night and while it was clean, the 'remodeling' only consisted of some fresh paint. The staff were very helpful and Ramon at Guest Services was very friendly and professional. The man at the shuttle desk was horrible and didn't show up for 2 days so we had to walk across the street to another hotel to book shuttle service to Seaworld. The shuttle Driver, Janine was fantastic. For the price, this is a great hotel for your family. The suite has a refrigertor, microwave and dishwasher. There was ample room to walk around and it made the trip very enjoyable.
