First and foremost, don't get caught up in the reviews that are negative about room size, staff attentiveness, parking, etc. One must understand the hotel, within its design and purpose, is for basically sleeping and holding your belongings while your out doing business, pleasure or leisure.
Was the room small? Sure it was. But it's all relative to your situation. We had a family of four (two boys; 9 & 7) and we stayed comfortably. We never felt like we were "on top of each other" because the rooms were small. The storage was enough for all of us to store 5 days worth of clothes (and get ready stuff for the wife) without any issue. The only potential downside - which the negative thoughts went away after day one - is the hotel doesn't have any bathtubs. Again, we didn't get the hotel to take baths in; only to shower to get ready, and shower to clean off from a day at the park(s).
The staff was exceptional. They were always available to assist, and willing to answer questions you may have. Also, each morning I would go to the gym (0530) the front desk attendant was very customer oriented in the fact that s/he would ask how my sleep was that night and if there was anything they could do to make it better. Did I experience a time when I had to ask the front desk a question and there were guests at the desk? Yes. It happens. It's like any other business in the world were you have to wait if there are other customers in front of you. Now, once you got to the desk, again, the staff was exceptionally customer oriented. Apologetic for the wait and ready and willing to answer your concern.
Breakfast was hot and ready. The staff was turning the food quicker than it could get eaten; which was good because there was always fresh, hot eggs, sausage/bacon, biscuits, etc. The bread and pastries were really good too. They weren't dry or crumbly - simply soft and fresh.
In all, I would - and I speak for my wife - highly recommend this property to any individual or family traveling to the Orlando area. The comfort was there. The staff was spot on. The food/amenities was plentiful. And the property is ideally located in terms of access to I4 and the airport.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MJS14 Small Rooms and no counter space
Rooms are very small, bathrooms are very small and not very private (with door that slides into wall). If you are traveling alone the rooms are ok for one person but not more. Good breakfast as usual with Holiday Inn Express
