Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GregM Another great stay at this hotel!
I travel to Orlando frequently on business - have stayed at this property several times, each time it is better! Always exceptionally clean., A little noisy, but that is to be expected in a tourist area. Staff is always helpful and courteous.
Why not a perfect score?
1) Breakfast - I miss the suasage gravy at breakfast that is a staple all all other HIE.
2) Newspaper. Not placed by the door for priority club memebers (was told "We don't do that here").
Perhaps if you asked the platinum or gold elite members if they want it at the door?
Would clearly recommend. - great property.
Already have my reservations here for my next stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FamilyTraveller101 Great base for the Parks
So we needed a place to stay whilst we hit both Disney and Universal and this hotel proved a great please to do that from.
It's position on the International Drive also allows you to walk to the wide range of eating places, but set back far enough not to hear the noise and lights of surrounding buildings.
Only 3 complaints and they did not spoil our stay. There was a large group in over one weekend that made breakfast and noise levels an issue. Second not enough washing machines for the number of people wanting to use them. And we had very slow wireless access but were at the end of the corridor.
Otherwise would go back

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great room, good breakfast, excellent staff
This is the best relation between price and comfort that you will get in a Orlando area hotel. Just as that.
I spent 10 day at the King Size room, with the jacuzzi, and the bed is awesome and the room was always very clean. The staff are amazing, gentle and very efficient.
The breakfast are good, but it repeats itself every other day.
I greatly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great room in a nice budget.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Leandra1975 all ok, but breakfast (and staff) needs true improvement
We stayed for almost a week, let's start with the biggest disappointment: breakfast. Every day the same, except a banana no healthy options. Also no variety. Bagels were hard and not fresh, bah! Staff in breakfast area absolutely not friendly! Exactly at 9.30 am the employee started cleaning the place and he turned off the light. Not very customer friendly...
Please also fix the lock on the outside wall when coming from the poolarea. Front desk should not tell guest that they know it's broken. They should fix it!!
Further I am happy with the front office staff, the room, beds and roomsize. It' s a rather new place and dispite the two comments I can still recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Manfred33 Great location in Orlando
Thought this was a great hotel, after choosing it for my family and I for our short vacation to Disney World and Universal Studios for our son's birthdays. Felt the location was perfect....not too far from any of the major tourist attractions and not too close either. Plenty of activity around the hotel itself too, but the hotel is set back from the street a bit, which keeps things mostly quiet there. Hotel was very clean and looks like it had been recently renovated/updated, as everything looked quite new and modern in style/design. Staff at front desk was friendly and breakfast was actually pretty good each morning. Beds were really comfortable and I have to say they had the most comfortable pillows I have ever slept on in a hotel! They were awesome and I have slept on A LOT of uncomfortable hotel pillows.... All-in-all, i would highly recommend this location for your next trip to Orlando. It is located relatively close to Disney World and just around the corner from Universal Studios.

I travel to Orlando for business frequently and this is my hotel of choice. The property is fairly new and has a great location. Plenty of dining choices, entertainment close by and easy access to I-4, the Turnpike and the Beachline.
I would like to see HI Express update their breakfast selection. Not just this location, but for all. The std selection is getting old.

Ok for a business travler - I've stayed here before and will stay here again. From a vacation/tourist perspective, this is an outstanding property. From a business perspective, it's crowded and noisy. Clean rooms, good air conditioner. Hot water. comfortable pillows and bed. Parking is crowded.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dbb1 Comfortable bed and clean room
When we entered our room we were met with a clean, fresh scent and the room was up to our standards with clean fresh linens and well maintained housekeeping. It's always nice to have a good night's sleep on a comfortable bed when traveling. The queen bed provided room for two and support for a comfortable night's sleep.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EVRP99 Outstanding as usual.
I have stayed at this particular hotel at least 20 times in the past year but this was my first time back since February 2013.
Things haven't changed Mary and her staff provided their usual outstanding service. Specifically, I would like to recognize Robert, John, and Silvio for their outstanding service.
The room was clean, everything was there and working. A change in the variety of breakfast items available would have made an Excellent rating in all areas rated. It was a minor thing when you look at the number of times I've stayed at the hotel. Someone who hasn't stayed there as much might not notice it all.

I have stayed at your location probably about 6 times, and my experience has been always one of complete satisfaction. Your hotel is more satisfying than many higher priced that I have used in the past. Keep the good work.

We stayed for 10 days at the Holiday Inn express at international Drive and the service exceeded our expectations. The room was always clean and ready for us to enjoy. The front desk people always went the extra mile to meet our needs. The complimentary breakfast was one of the best i've experienced. The hotel staff would always greet you with a smile and took the time to ask us about our day. I highly recommend staying at this hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by wantwhatipaidfor About what you would expect
Location is close to the parks, Breakfast average.
Room was nice. But and here it the BUT. Called Holiday Inn and spend 45 minutes on the phone tracking down a room with a seperate living room and two queen beds. Finally got this location through them . Got to the room late because we were at the park all day and sure enough 1 king bed not two queen beds. We had our bags in the room and were to tired to make a change at that point. Such a simple requst, such a simple request. Mentioned it to the front desk in the morning and it was not big deal to him. Not sweat off his back. I guess that's because he didn't have to sleep on sofa couch that had only 3 inches of mattress.
Oh and an annoying side note.
After reserving the room they patch me through to a telemarketer trying to sell me deals to NC and a couple of other locations I wasn't interested in. WOW., WOW.

I brought the family here for vocation and we had the most wonderful time. the staff and everyone we came in contact with was just so helpful and made our stay most enjoyable.
We had a few problems with noise and running down the halls, but the staff handled it with perfection. I would definitely recommend this hotel for your stay.
The rooms our so clean, the breakfast area is always well stocked, and the general manager is always so polite and helpful, and is the center point of the reason why this hotel I would in my eyes recommend as one of the best hotels I have been at for a long time.
So next time you are in Orlando just don't take my word for it, see for yourself why this hotel stand out from all the rest.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and the breakfast was very good. Our only complaint was the elevators were very slow. We usually took the steps, but for some senior citizens this could be a bigger issue. If you get the elevator situation corrected, I would give you 5 stars.

Stayed in June 13 for 1 week rooms are good and spacious and comfortable beds. Had a quiet room at front of hotel.Breakfast is basic but good. Would have liked Bar and Dining option but now know the Holiday Inn Express do not offer this. Hotel well located and free shuttle to parks is good.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BernardoS We were robbed
Before our arrival, we contacted the hotel about sending packages, and I was informed that they could be sent and would be stored by the hotel even if they arrived before my check-in (but a fee per package would be charged). After the check-in, I requested the packages, and surprisingly, two of them were open (one with the shape of a notebook, and another WITH a notebook), but the one containing the notebook was empty. Only the EMPTY BOX was delivered to me. The hotel did not take any responsibility for what happened, because the packages are stored in a room that anyone has free access and there is no monitoring of any kind. We had to call the police and lose a whole day of our very short vacations with this problem (not to mention the value of the notebook). Oh, and after all , I still had to pay for the storage service of my stolen notebook! What kind of service is that?
I contacted the customer care, but they basically said "sorry". So be careful, none of your belongings are secure there, as they said "we can't be held responsible, we just store your things....".
