Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 285 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by READ BEFORE YOU BOOK If you need space in your room you may want to keep looking. I opened the door to my room and immediately walked to the front desk and asked for a bigger room. NO suck luck - told nothing was available - even though I had a standing request for one over a week before check-in. Here are a few drawbacks: -No upgrade offered for Platinum Member -No microwave -No refrigerator -Room very small -No tub - just a plastic gym quality shower stall -No full bathroom - semi-efficiency style -No dressing area The staff are nice and courteous - but that will never compensate for a lack of necessary amenities and living space.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Was not able to relax and sleep in do to housekeeping talking across the halls while cleaning.. November 12, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not able to relax I am am Prioity member and asked for late check out. And the whole morning from 8-12:30pm the housekeeping keep having these long conversations right outside my room, I opened the door and asked them to move and they didn't understand me. I called downstairs and nothing was done. So much for being able to sleep in and relax. The bed was very uncomfortable . If you are looking to relax and sleep in this is not the hotel for you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Woderful experience We all have a great time!!! Thank you to Holiday Inn Express for you excellent services. November 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good hotel at a good price Very spacious room. Comes with ironing board, iron which were the equipment I needed to have a nicely pressed shirt for my business meeting. The hair dryer was sufficiently powerful and was a nice feature compared to other normally less powerful ones. Very big bed which offered me a great night sleep/rest. November 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stay in Orlando The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast bar was good and well supplied. The one thing I noticed about this property was the rooms were smaller than most Holiday Inn Express I have stayed at and the bathroom was very small. It was ok for a single person room . the room was comfortable. November 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good location for basic travelers I accidentally made reservations here instead of at the Holiday Inn (which I guess is walking distance to Universal Studios) when my significant other said, "book at the Holiday Inn Express nearest Universal." Well, duh. So, first we went to the wrong hotel and they were very kind and then we drove over to this location. Mind you, our flight had been delayed for hours and we'd been traveling for more than 16 hours at this point, so we were tired and hungry and overwhelmed. The Holiday Inn Express was clean, well lit, and welcoming. The room was clean and spacious. Amenities were basic. Our view was of the highway outside, but the noise was minimal. We didn't use the pool or have breakfast, but I appreciate that they were there. We basically needed somewhere safe, clean, and nice to stay close to Universal Studios and this fit the bill. There is a free shuttle that takes you to the parks, although we didn't use it. Price was right and I would recommend and/or return, although next time we might go back to the Holiday Inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by overall great experience great food, clean room, all that we expected, friendly and helpful staff November 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excelente el Servicio al Cliente Bien Ubicado. El hotel se encuentra en una muy buena ubicacion, muy cerca a todos los sitios que se podrian necesitar en cualquier ocasion. Atracciones, Restaurantes, etc. El servicion al cliente, muy pero muy eficaz. Lo unico y que me molesto un poco fue que algunas personas estaban haciendo mucho ruido muy temprano en la manana. Pero nada que creo sea muy comun. November 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient and quiet, but beds not too confortable Old style beds with coil; springs. Sagging in the middle. Doors are thin and elevator "dings" all night long. They should turn off the bell. Breakfast selection was so so. McDonald's would have been better, but I guess you can't complain about something free. bananas were too yellow and soft. November 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay and great price Convenience to Universal is just the beginning of a great stay at Holiday Inn Express. The room is bright and modern with all the right amenities. A true value for the Orlando entertainment area. November 1, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by As Advertised Recently stayed here for three nights to visit Universal Studios. The hotel was quite adequate although showing some wear. You can tell it gets used hard, but that isn't really surprising. Some of the common areas could have used some extra attention. The trash can near the ice machine on our floor was always overflowing. Breakfast was ok but nothing special. I like the idea of free breakfast but it wasn't exactly fulfilling. We made it work though and it saved a few dollars. October 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Staff very friendly and courteous Location of property was perfect to visit Universal Studios, room was nice, and complimentary breakfast was great October 31, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by todo bueno y servicio excelente la pasamos todo bien cuartos limpios y el servicio de excelencia desayuno bien completo. October 30, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hair on sheets When we arrived the room was very warm. We put our bags away and went out for dinner. When we arrived back at the hotel to get ready for bed, I pulled back the sheets and found multiple stains and tiny hairs all under blankets. I took pictures and went back down to the lobby and was told someone would be to my room soon. Security dropped off new sheets for me to put on the bed.... Then a family member went to use the bathroom and found that neither the toilet nor shower would drain correctly. October 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great staff, clean rooms and good variety of breakfast items offered This is the second time that I have stayed at this particular hotel. Due to the friendliness of the staff, quality and cleanliness of the hotel and grounds and the quality and variety of breakfast items, I will return next year! October 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed Comfortable bed, good service, great breakfast. The bathroom was a little small, with only a shower and no tub. Great location near Universal Studios. October 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Staff was excellent and the room was clean I was very pleased with everything about the facility. October 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location near Universal Nice location. Great with free shuttle service. Last shuttle leaves at 11am to go to Universal. You've to get a shuttle pass from travel desk everyday. Taxi ride one way was just $8. Good restaurants in walking distance. Wish the room and the bed was a bit bigger. It was a very compact room with no extra space for 4 little carry on bags. For 2 adults and 2 kids it was very congested. They've Double beds instead of Queen size. The beds were sagging and not firm . It's time for upgrade. Breakfast was awesome with plenty of varieties. Wish the temperature was a little less cooler in the breakfast area. The hot food was getting cold very fast if you get up and go to pick something else. Due to this there were people who threw away their cold food. What a waste!!! 24/7 coffee in the lobby was very welcome after a tiring day at the park. Also Starbucks was walking distance. For a family, I would recommend a bigger room with Queen beds which are very few at this hotel. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic Hotel We enjoyed our stay, Doris on the day staff and Lucas on the night staff treated us like family, and answered any questions we had. The breakfast was very good we thought, and a decent selection of items for big eaters and light eaters.The pool was very nice and the location was great. We will definately stay here again and would highly recommend it. October 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hotel needed updated Overall great staff of people! Room was dated, especially the carpet, which was stained and seemed dirty. Linen did not look new. Had issue with the toilet on check-in. Immediate response from maintenance who used a plunger. Helped, but still has an issue. Shared that again on check out. Had breakfast each morning. It was hot and fresh. October 27, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ant's on the 3rd floor Booked the room for 2 nights for the Spooky Empire Convention going on at another nearby hotel. Everything seemed fine and looked clean, I wasn't spending much time in the room, but I came back last night to find trails of ants all over the tv stand. I had a bottle of liquor there, and it seemed like they were attracted to the bottle since I didn't bring any food in the room. I then noticed ants on the coffee maker and all over the desk next to the tv stand (where I was storing some items as well). Any other time I would have contacted someone immediately, but it was late in the morning, and I had to leave the next day anyway. I moved all my stuff to the opposite side of the room, and tried to sleep, but kept thinking about ants being in the bed so I didn't rest well. When I checked out this morning, I talked to the person at the service desk about the ants. their only response to my obvious displeasure and late night pest inconvenience? "I'm sorry". Next time I book a hotel near Universal, I will look elsewhere, I'm sure other places don't have pest problems like that. October 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff The staff here is wonderful. The rooms immaculate, though smaller than most other "Express" hotels we've stayed in and did lack the usual microwave and refrigerator that we have come accustomed to. But, overall...still a great place to stay. Just wish the pillows were firmer. October 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service The trip was a last minute leisure trip with the family. The staff was very accomodating and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and the kids enjoyed the pool area. The breakfast in the morning was also very organized and tasty. Overall had a great experience and would recommend this location to my friends. October 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Experience Essentially what I would hope for at any hotel. No problems with anything. Beds were comfortable; it was quiet and dark enough to sleep well; everything was clean; staff was friendly and helpful; daily housekeeping did a great job. October 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Our wondeful stay: During our most recent visit to the Holiday Inn Express was such a great pleasure. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to our next visit. The weather was nice and we enjoyed being the this great city. We are looking to return very soon in the near future. October 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Like going home.. I stay at this location several times throughout the year. I am always impressed with the staff. The rooms are clean. The ease of grabbing dinner and getting around on foot is great. It's a welcoming group of staff. Feels like home. October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable and friendly Great staff! About a mile walking distance to Universal Studios Orlando. Have stayed here twice for Halloween Horror Nights, perfect location. October 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heaven After a night walking around Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights, falling into the bed at Holiday Inn Express was like sleeping on a cloud. The room was clean, the staff was friendly and accommodating. So impressed i booked with their Dania Beach location later that week. October 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service This is a convenient location for business and leisure. The staff are friendly and attentive. I stay here whenever I am in Orlando. October 20, 2014
