Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GS Leader Nice room
We took our girl scout troop on a trip and stayed here in one of the suites. The girls loved it and were so impressed with the room. There was plenty of space for us and it was nice that there was a separate bedroom that we could escape to. We would definitely return if we could get the same great rate in the future!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Claire59 Slightly disappointed.
The hotel itself is beautifully decorated and the rooms are very nice, however I felt that the colours used were very dark and considering I was staying there for a holiday it felt quite depressing. The beds in the room were very comfortable but the firm pillows are not firm at all they are bouncy and quite soft. The air-conditioning is very good however it is very noisy, as is the fridge in the room. We also had to put up with the noise of water running upstairs every time someone used a tap. It was very disturbing and we struggled to sleep some nights. Room 226. I was also disappointed that we could not open the window, some days we wanted to listen to the thunder but the windows are not made to be opened so we had to miss out.
The food from TGI's was nice but very expensive as TGI's always is, so I was disappointed that there was no actual Holiday Inn restaurant or discount provided for people staying in the hotel to use at TGI's.
The people on the universal desk, although they do not work for the hotel directly it should be brought to light that each person we spoke to were very rude and treated us like dirt rather than a customer.
Guest services from the hotel on the other hand were very helpful and friendly along with all other staff within the hotel we came into contact with. Security were very helpful and extremely friendly when storing our bags for the day.
The taxi company the hotel work with had some really rude drivers that didn't agree with the round trip prices the hotel document in the room stated. I stay in Holiday Inn's all the time so I was quite optimistic about the hotel itself however I was left disappointed with how my holiday went staying within this Holiday Inn.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HarryPotterWannaBe Ask questions before you book....
Make sure to inquire about the room, size of beds, etc., before you book. Also make sure you dont need more than a couple electrical outlets, as there are only two on the desk lamp and two on the bedside lamp available in a regular room. I couldnt find a single available outlet in the lobby. If you are a late sleeper, be prepared to be woken up by slamming doors of those who are not late sleepers, or by the rooms that are being cleaned. One of the noisiest hotels I've ever stayed at. The service elevator is the main elevator, so in the mornings you are competing with the service staff for elevator space.

We were lucky to grab a coupon book on the way into Florida and used it for our stay. I think if I had to pay full price I would be more than a little annoyed with the hotel. Check-in staff seemed annoyed to be asked to apply a coupon to our stay- and the attitude was off putting. If I wasn't as tired from the 14 hour drive as I was, I would have left to look for another place . Instead of the king room we were given two "Queen" beds- which are a size of the twin at most. Parking was adequate and available kind of - didn't want valet service but we had to circle the parking lot few times to find an open spot. Other than that it was ok.

As an IHG Reward member I always expect a superior experience from Holiday Inn. This particular hotel did not disappoint. The staff was very helpful and friendly, especially Laticia. The rooms are nice but they could use a little updating. The pool was fantastic. I would definetly recommend this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Weekender24 Conveinent location and comfortable and clean accommodations
This hotel is located immediately across the street from Universal Studios-Orlando which made it very convenient since we were planning to spend the day there. The hotel offers free shuttle service to the park, but you could easily walk there as well.
The hotel does not offer a free breakfast, but you can got to the TGIF on the property and pay $10/pp for a Buffett breakfast.
The hotel did have a nice pool area as well as a game room to keep kids entertained on properly.
Room was very clean and updated and beds were comfortable.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by shannon107 Bad trip thanks to this hotel
Heat/AC did not regulate properly, no coffee service, front desk locked us out of our room and restaurant was closed. All in all a waste of time and money.
We will never come to this location again.

This is our first time taking a vacation to Orlando and this hotel is very close to Universal Studio, Which is why we chose to stayed here. We were very disappointed on the house keeping part. Our room did not get vacuum everyday, only one time out of the whole week we stayed. Our bed sheet did not get change very often...maybe once. The bathroom floor was dirty it took them 3 days later to clean it out. Late at night is very noisy people slamming their door when coming or going.
Other then that their front desk staff was very helpful. When we first arrived at the hotel they assigned a room up on the highest floor level. We decided to ask for a change to the lower floor and Yamill their front desk staff making sure we get what we want. I want to thanks Yamill for being so helpful. There's many other hotels we would stay around the area if we were to go back to Universal Studio again.

Great way to spend our honeymoon! The hotel had a shuttle to Universal plus it was located literally across the street. We decided to walk there everyday (about a 10 minute walk). The hotel staff were very nice, clean atmosphere, no complaints at all. We're planning on returning.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jonc55 It's .mmmm........ OK, but nothing special
A good location and quite handy for Universal which is only a 10 minute walk away.
The hotel could do with a bit of a make make over.
We were upgraded in arrival but found the the corridors were a bit tatty and our room, and I guess all of them, had what looked like a metal cell door that was ill fitting and made the whole place look a bit rough, and a bit noisy from other rooms.
Inside was mainly OK apart from there was a door missing from the wardrobe which again made it look a bit tatty, and the sink plus didn't work if you want to get picky.
There was no room safe and no safety deposit box available behind reception which meant we had to carry passports and money all the time.
I suppose I'm lucky to have got the upgrade!
Overall I probably wouldn't stay again as there are plenty of other better options available locally.

The beds are very comfortable and the staff are always helpful and friendly. The vending machine prices are a bit expensive and the housekeeping staff come early, most times they come when you have just woken up or leaving but would definitely recommend this place again. Pool area is a nice heated pool.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Snoopy88 Room and Services
I must say that I was somewhat disappointed in the room and services. My first night, I was given a room that only had one standard double size bed and a sofa bed. My booking was to have a king size bed or two standard double size bed. The bathroom was awful. I had to demand to be moved to another room and it was done the following day.The gentleman that gave me another room as Paul to which I was thankful. I note that this hotel has the tendency to overbook and hope for the best that no guest will complain. The only person that listened to my concerns was the security personnel, Jimmy. He kept apologizing to me even though it was not his fault. Another thing that I did not like was the weak WiFi that the hotel offered. The WiFi just kept cutting in and out. I always give tips to housekeeping in return I ask for extra soaps, shampoos, conditioners, or towels and this time, when I ask for extra towels, I never received any. I most likely will not be returning to this hotel when I go back to Orlando. I will stay elsewhere where I can receive satisfactory guarantee services and room.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bke28 Condition
The hotel lobby area was nice and updated. We stayed in a suite that needed updating and repair. The carpet was stained, the carpet mop boards were coming off the wall, the bathroom sink was cracked and did not have a stopper on. The beds were good. All the tv remotes needed new batteries. For a suite I felt this room should have been better. The staff was excellent and very helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by travel happy Happy holidays
Stayed in a suite for two weeks UK Easter Holidays/American Spring Break. Quick response to any requests. Rooms very comfortable, bathroom small with dressing area and the lounge is very large. The carpet in the lounge did have some stains but all other areas of housekeeping were very good. All the suites look out onto the car park.
The grandchildren enjoyed the pool and we were always able to get sun loungers. Universal is a ten minute walk or there is a complimentary bus schedule to all the parks. There is Iride bus stop outside the hotel and you can pay for a single journey on the bus $2 or buy a 7 or 14 day pass from Guest Services.
We had a great stay and are looking forward to our next visit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Geordie traveller Perfect location for universal
The hotel is ideally situated for the universal theme parks, only a 10 min walk so no need for shuttle bus. TGI Friday breakfast is good value for money and don't forget to ask for a child's voucher from the front desk . Hotel reception staff were very helpful and booked taxis which only took a few minutes to arrive. The taxis however were a little pricey and the mears taxis were much cheaper.
Beds were comfortable but only complaint would be the walls aren't sound proofed and you can hear everything through them, and it can be noisy at night in the corridors when people are returning late.
That being said I would stay hear again just because of its location.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Silver Bullet Overall Review
The walk is about 15 minutes to Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure and is a very scenic route.
The outdoor pool is heated and may not be as refreshing as you would think after a hot day.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the room (suite) was well kept and very clean.
One surprise was the onsight ticket booth to purchase your tickets to Universal Studios and other Parks in the area. They also included coupons, deals, shuttle buses, etc.
There is also a token operated games room with arcade games and air hockey.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ohio 321 Good value and convenient
Walking distance was pleasant to get to both Universal parks and City Walk. Room was very clean and staff attentive. The only negative I have is the shower/toilet area is very small for being in a suite.
