Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GraceStar What a great place!
I travel a lot and I always stay here if at all possible. The management "cares" and it shows. The entire staff is professionally pleasant, striving to be certain their guests have the best possible experience and it's much appreciated.

This is just off of International Drive, close to everything yet at the same time off of the crowd. The front desk person is a pleasure to deal with. The hotel endeavors to keep everyone happy. My only gripe was the printer for the business computers would not accept a print job. I have stayed here before and it is my choice for the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GainesvilleFL Holiday Inn Express - Very Nice
While getting out to the main street ( International Drive ) was scary it was worth the stay at this hotel location. I've stayed at a number of HIE and so far I have been very satisified with $$$ and value. The standard room is more than what I expected with the half refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. Yes, most would say those are usual accessories but the quality of the appliances kept up to date make the difference. Who wants to come back to a room after a long day wanting coffee/tea and the coffee maker doesn't work? The room atmosphere is great as the hotel itself as well as the rooms have been updated. The breakfast is more than enough and the staff is friendly and pleasant. They keep the breakfast area well maintained and *clean*! The wifi was a little *skippy* as I lost connection to my iPhone and iPad a few times. Overall without the wifi and the main attraction being the comfort of the room and availability of breakfast before getting out to a long vacation day, this hotel was well worth the $$$.

The staff was very nice, especially Eilisha (front desk) and the brazilian lady working the breakfast. They were exceptionally helpful, friendly and courteous! Also, the rooms were very comfortable and clean. I would definately stay here again with my family.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Comforable Close to Attractions
Front desk, fast friendly recognized priority club membership. Helpful on restaurant recommendation. Room was as expected clean and up to date, the best surprise no surprise. Breakfast, was hot and fresh, the area was well stocked and kept clean. Hotel location sets back off International Blvd. but close enough to walk to many restaurants and attractions.
Proximity to parks, Front desk friendly efficient and helpful. Recognized priority club membership, breakfast, free high speed wifi
Late check out for platinum members only 12:30.

This is an OK hotel. rooms were clean. the breakfast is very average and busy so they are often out of items and I waited for more to be brought out, like milk. the outdoor swimming pool is absolutely freezing, even though our temps were always in the 70s and 80s. it is located at a little noisier part of international drive. We chose this hotel for its location and because we didn't want to spend a lot on a room, thinking that we would be gone a lot. I am glad that we were busy most of the time because even my kids, who will swim in anything, were too cold in the pool. for 4 nights we barely used the elevator. it was excruciatingly slow and the stairs were the only option. thank goodness we were only on the 3rd floor and could do that. sometimes they were down to one elevator. not sure if repairs or being used by staff.
In general, an OK stay, but I have stayed in better holiday inn expresses.
