Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service accomodations I was satisfied with all aspects of this hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone as a fine place to stay, November 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great place great place to stay, friendly staff,very helpful. will stay here again when in the area. November 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Clean and comfortable It was Clean and comfortable whichvis the most important. five people staying we only had a few towels but when we asked they came right away same thing with the shampoos. All in all definitely worth the price we had the kitchenette although we didn't need it but the price was right. doesn't have many bells and whistles's but we didn't need them. definitely would recommend also breakfast was good not just muffins, they had everything. November 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Will stay here again Great staff, clean rooms, and fair price. Zero problems and easy access to the airport! November 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Orlando Hotel was clean and a very friendly place to stay. November 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just What You'd Expect! HI Express has certainly upped their game over the last few years. This property, like so many others, was immaculately maintained. Rooms were clean. Everything seemed new. Staff was great. Easy access to ORL (about 5 minutes away). Gas right next door at the 7-11. Not the cheapest option for sure, but well worth the extra bucks IMO... November 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great nights of rest and location. We were able to have a great night of sleep each night. The location is excellent with accessibility to major freeways and streets. November 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value for a great room and amenities Our stay was not only comfortable but also at a reasonable price. The breakfast bar was better than the usual continental choices. We had a hot breakfast every day and the food was of excellent quality. The room was clean and the service was very friendly and helpful. It was pretty much a hassle free stay with many conveniences. I would highly recommend to those looking for value without compromising quality. November 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Relaxing stay My wife, daughter and i were in Orlando for a funeral so it was not a relaxing time, but the Holiday Inn Express made our stay as comfortable and pleasant as one could expect. We have stayed at a number of Holiday Inns across Canada and the USA and have never felt the need to complain about anything. Thanks... November 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service Attentive staff both at check in and during stay including breakfast staff. November 4, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 great bed Bed & pillows were good quality and very comfortable. Room was spacious and clean. The only downside was a loud a/c unit in the room which prevented me from getting a good nights sleep. location of the hotel is good. Its very close to the airport. November 4, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay We stayed here twice, on the way to and from a cruise. It was great! We didn't hear any of the planes taking off or landing. We slept fine and the hotel was nice and quiet each night. The pillows need some help though. October 29, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service Clean room , room its maintained and front desk its very helpfully thanks October 28, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Poor service The hotel itself had some kind of construction going on outside (for which I do not hold against). The rooms and products were clean and well maintained, but the staff was unwelcoming and very unfriendly. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, ever! October 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A good location with great staff Used my point to stay for two nights and had a room with a small kitchen area. Staff are really helpful here and Rosa looks after you at breakfast. October 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Guter Service Wir waren sehr zufrieden und werden auf jeden Fall Holiday Inn Express und auch andere Hotels der IHG Gruppe waehlen October 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great overnight stay It was a confortable overnight stay. I did not stay long but for the night waiting for a flight going both ways the hotel was confortable and the airport transport serive was worth the stay. October 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay I found this hotel great! from the free 24 hr shuttle to the very comfy beds, to the breakfast. October 22, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by clean and looking fresh Every thing was great and enjoyed the stay with a great breakfast the next morning October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable beds We were in the Orlando area for 12 days and our last night we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express and it was the best night sleep we had. Beds and pillows exceptional. Room was quite and clean. Staff was knowledgeable and extremely helpful. October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Expect a great experience As a budget conscious person, this place, and almost every one like it I have stayed in, have been excellent. In the past year I have stayed in 3 rooms in 3 different states, and each one has been excellent. Clean room, great staff, and a mattress I can actually sleep like a baby in! October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice location, facility Stayed here recently during a college visit. We initially drove past the hotel (at night) because it is located at the bottom of an exit ramp and the signs are not prominent. The facility itself is clean, up to date, and secure. Would stay here again. October 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Hotel with Affordable Rates Staff was friendly. Very quiet. Not a whole lot of places to eat around the area, but that is not the hotels fault. There is a pizza place that delivers there that is good. October 18, 2014
