As always the Holiday Inn franchise lived up to expectations. The room was clean, bed comfortable and staff friendly. The light breakfast provided is always hot, tasty and plentiful.
This is a definite recommend.

I did not even know this hotel existed until our standard hotel in the area closed for refurbishment. I wish I had. The Holiday Inn Express on Colonial is extremely clean, comfortable and very convenient to Technology Parkway and I can highly recommend that anyone doing business in the area to take a look. As a frequent traveler, it's also very nice to be greeted by name and with a friendly smile, especially after a long days travel. Plenty of good restaurants close by and excellent wireless.

A special shout out to Erica, Kristy, Deborah and Gina. As the forward face of the HIE, they did a remarkable job indicating to me that I was, in fact, an important customer that was welcomed. This means a lot to me and those I frequently travel with. These particular front desk personnel never failed to offer a sincere "Good Morning" or "Welcome back" and I was appreciative of that, especially because I am the owner of two small businesses and recognize the importance of superlative customer service.

If you're in the area and are looking for a friendly, clean and reasonably priced accommodation, I highly recommend this hotel.

Great Place! Courtney and Catherine at the front desk were great. Everything was clean and new feeling. Pool was nice and refreshing. King room we had was nice and large. Parking lot was a little tight and elevator was bumpy.

The hotel is very clean in the rooms, lobby area, breakfast area, everywhere. The staff at this hotel are very helpful and super friendly. The breakfast each morning was very filling, and the coffee in the middle of the day was a nice surprise too. I needed something close to UCF, and this was just right. The parking spaces seemed a bit narrow to me, but I found that the last row of parking spaces in the parking lot were angled, leaving extra room for opening doors further. I would definitely stay here again.

Room tip: Our room was very spacious as the area was large enough to accommodate a wheel chair to move around quite easily. It was right as you stepped off the elevator. I do suggest that you request a room away from the elevator if you are a light sleeper as you will hear a soft "humming" sound each time uses the elevator.

I thought the hotel was wonderful, it had a good atmosphere and was beautifully done. The staff were all nice to interact w/ and genuinely enjoyed their jobs. The room had plenty of space but still felt cozy, lots of stuff for breakfast including fresh fruit! Location in orlando is pretty convenient too, local activities are every where at you finger tips. Can't wait to stay again!
