“Great property”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

I stay in many H Inn Express hotels and am very satisfied with them. This property rates at the top of this chain. Terrific front desk help and an incredible aquarium in the lobby. Clean rooms, halls and lobby.

We usually stay closer to the theme parks, but were headed to Renniger's, so we chose Tavares. This hotel was really nice. They were booked solid. Our friends had called to ensure a king size bed, but didn't get it. That was the only disappointment. Arrived in time for the manager's reception. The rooms were beautiful. We used the fitness room and the business center. The staff was very nice. Hotel rooms were immaculate. The breakfast hostess was outstanding - a real treasure. The hotel was convenient to everything we needed. Would stay here again and again. Price was a little bit high.

Room Tip: Easy to get in and out of. Convenient to stores and restaurants. Nice walking path too!

We have stayed at a number of Holiday Inn Express properties, and have found them to be a good value. As a platinum Priority Club member, I don't expect to be treated as royalty; I do expect to get the room type I reserved. This didn't happen at this HIE. I reserved a king leisure room 6 weeks before my arrival for a 3-night stay and it was confirmed. On arrival, I was told there were no king leisure rooms available, and I would have to take a room with two queen beds.

Efforts to resolve this problem were unsuccessful. The room they assigned was the smallest room of that type, was very cramped and had a noisy refrigerator. Again I protested and eventually I was moved to another larger two-queen room. You would think that I would be given the better room initially, since I was denied the room I reserved. Otherwise the stay was uneventful; a couple of problems with the rooms were corrected satisfactorily.

This facility's business center was in the dining area offering no privacy whatsoever, so we didn't use it.

In the end, our loyalty membership did not even earn us the room we reserved, tarnishing a brand we had been happy with.

Everytime we visit Renningers, we try to stay at this Holiday Inn b/c they have a few rooms with a in-room oversized jetted tub. It is in the main part of the room, not the bathroom and a great way to unwind after 6+ hours of outside antique hunting at the Renningers antique extravaganza.

The room was clean, plenty of hot water, very comfortable bed, good a/c& heat and the property is quiet. The TV reception is great...very large flat screen with plenty of HD channels.

Some areas of improvement...the hallways are freezing! The coffee maker could be a little larger and the shower in the jacuzzi suite is very small.

The morning breakfast was a little better than I remember it (not as good as the last few I've had at Residence Inns, but it was pretty good). You can make your own pancakes and they had scrambled eggs, biscuits & gravy, along with a few pieces of fruit, toast & cereal. Not a lot of condiments or extras though...ie, no cheese or onions or salsa...no hashbrowns or bacon. Also the food area is very cumbersome...there is no counterspace to put your plate down which is a problem b/c you have to hold open the lid with one hand, while using the tongs/spoon to get your food with the other hand...need someone to hold your plate or hold the lid.

All in all, we stay here whenever we visit Renningers if we can get the jacuzzi suite. If you are in the area, you won't go wrong with this Holiday Inn.

Alex and the staff do, quite simply, an amazing job with the upkeep of this Hotel, not to mention treat people in a friendly and professional manner. The rooms are absolutely beautiful. We do trade shows and every time we are in this area, we choose this hotel. We see a lot of hotels in a year, and this is probably the cleanest and friendliest place to date.

I hope no one expects to be going to a resort. This is your an average type hotel stay. A place to lay your head, w no frills. What makes it a great stay is, unlike their competitors for the same price, this is a clean and comfortable place to lay your head. The staff was so nice, the desk clerk even found us hot chocolate in the middle of the night. Why? Bc he was nice, and we asked! The only problem, beyond their control, is that it wasn't close enough to Mount Dora City Center...about 20 min. But I will willing to sacrifice distance for a good price, and a name I trust.

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Lake County, Florida. We got a good deal on the "Presidential Suite"; though a good size with two separate bedrooms, a lounge and decent kitchen, it was not Presidential by any stretch of the imagination. The fixtures and fittings were dated and pillows in particular were very old and lumpy. The reception was very nice with large tropical freshwater aquariums dividing the reception and breakfast area. Breakfast was the usual HIE fayre and the attendant was very polite, friendly and helpful. The hotel is located, like so many HIEs, a bit out of town but there is a decent, friendly bar and gril within two minutes walk and your room key entitles you to a free appetiser. We are never likely to return to this area but the HIE provided decent accommodation at a reasonable cost so I am happy to recommend it.
