The hotel is located just outside the Disney area, less than two miles from Downtown Disney. Although this should be an easy drive, be prepared for some horrendous traffic leaving the Disney area via North Buena Vista Drive/Hotel Plaza Blvd. What should be a 5-10 minute trip can often take more than a half hour!

The hotel itself has a fairly large and attractive lobby area, as well as a very large breakfast area serving the typically very good HI Express breakfast. My room was fairly large, but would have benefited greatly from a good carpet cleaning. Lighting in the room was marginally OK, and some of the furniture was showing definite signs of wear. But the bed was quite comfortable.

I chose the hotel instead of paying the higher prices for a room at the Dolphin , the location of a conference that I was attending. If you are planning to do the same thing, you should be aware that parking at the Dolphin (and, I assume, at the other Disney properties) is $15.98 per day, with no in/out privileges. This somewhat diminishes the savings from staying outside the park.

I would be likely to return to the HI Express, but would certainly explore other routes for returning to the hotel after a day in Disney.

This is a penny-pincher's choice but not a bad one. It's a big motel and one would imagine it's been re-branded from an older property (it's got meeting rooms, gift shop, separate "restaurant" - things you don't normally associate with the HI Express brand). We arrived to a broken phone and a broken toilet and both received fast, friendly fixes. Finishes show their age but everything seemed clean and the kids didn't notice the flaws. They were more obsessed with the pool and its great oversized waterslide complete with waterfall.

For a parent driving to Disney, the location is superb. A couple blocks down the street, onto I-4 for two or three miles and then, voila, you're at any Disney World theme park in under ten minutes total. We didn't use the hotel's shuttle and directions to the Magic Kingdom from the Front Desk were spot on. The usual free breakfast was fresh and dining options abound within blocks for other meals.

It ain'y fancy but at a third of the priced of the lowest-tier Disney "Value" resort property, this was a superb value for this family on a budget.

The location of this hotel is great, Less than 5 minutes from Sea World, and about a mile from Downtown Disney. Easy to get to all the Disney Parks. There are LOTS of restaurants very close to the hotel. The breakfast area was the BEST I have ever seen at a Holiday Inn Express. The ladies that take care of the breakfast area are GREAT! Our room was clean and comfortable. A/C worked great. The kids enjoyed the pool. The pool was smaller than the pictures made it look, but my kids enjoyed the waterslide. Easy and friendly check in. The only downside is the bathrooms are a little small. I would definately stay here again if needed. And I would recommend this hotel to a friend.

Yes, the lobby was fully renovated, but I was disappointed with the room! I guess they just fixed they needed to fix. But I was expecting new doors, new/working phone or even a working hairdryer. I had to complain the hairdryer, which they fixed after 2 hours. The phone couldnt connect to the frontdesk. And when I finally got connected, nobody was answering the freaking phone.
Another complain, pool was so cold! Unfortunately, they provide a towel as a size of a hand towel!!! Ridiculous!!!!!!! I have been going to a Holiday Inn, but this one gave me so much of disappointment. Not worth of the nightly rate they charge.

A lot of restaurants in the area, and Universal Studios is close to the hotel.
Breakfast was really nice, we would definately recommend this hotel :)
