Hotel was good, service was good. Pool supposedly heated but was very cold. My kids enjoyed the kids suite. Definitely a repeat is warranted.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by washing Cleanliness
The remote for the TV wasn't cleaned and covered with something that was orange and sticky. All I could picture was a slob eating cheese puffs and flipping through the channels.
Towels had what appeared to be spots from a pen.
House keeping unlocked the room and walked in while knocking catching me laying in bed resting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 I WILL DEFINITELY RECOMMEND
Prior to booking my hotel room, I talked with someone in reservations that was very pleasant. She didn't have my answer, but was able to get right back to me with an answer. Although I only stayed for an evening, the accommodations were very comfortable and pleasant. My room was clean, and quiet. I would definitely recommend The Holiday Inn to my friends, associates and family.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pedwards43 In general not a friendly staff.
The room was fine. The hotel is NOT a realistic walk from Downtown Disney as claimed. The pool was nice. I am disappointed about how we were greeted by a very rude lady at the Valet. The lady inside was nice though although I had to wait 5 minutes for her to help me because the man vacuuming behind the counter continued to clean the same spot for 5 minutes as if it were a fun game with the desk clerk. He had a good laugh but I was tired and wanted to get our stuff to our room. The rest of the stay was fine until I went to check out. I have never once been in a hotel that refused to allow a guest to use a luggage cart without a valet. I really did not feel like paying a valet so I carried all of our bags to our van. This is where you lost me as a customer. I will never stay at your hotel again. Nor would I recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ashlee W. Excellent pool & location
I recently just stayed at this Holiday Inn, and it was an AMAZING experience. I literally cannot say enough about their outdoor/pool area. It was the nicest I personally have ever saw; the pool was huge, and had the shallow side roped off so the children mainly stayed at that end and the adults were able to swim freely in the deep end. It was so relaxing, not too busy. They also had tons of children activities at the pool with someone who ran them on the hour, they had ping pong tables and an Applebees Tiki bar which serves delicious Pina Coladas! The location was IDEAL!! It was maybe 5 minutes from SeaWorld, Epcot, TONS of restaurants and all of the conveniences you could want. It was also super safe and gated, you needed your room key to enter the parking lot and all buildings, which made me feel so secure.
The room is the only thing I had just a SLIGHT issue with; the room itself was fine, there was a decent sized fridge and microwave, however, the beds were very uncomfortable. I was okay the first couple nights, but after a few days, I started getting extremely sore because the bed was VERRRYYYY hard. That would be my one and only con to the hotel. I would still stay there again without a doubt!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Art48 Fun time with our grandchildren.
Nice clean room with excellent customer service. The grandchildren loved the bunk beds and large pool. The folks at the front desk were very accommodating and pleasant. Everything we needed was there at the resort and the location was close to Sea World which is where we took the boys.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OhioMatt5 Great place to stay and relax
We stayed here the day before a 5 day Disney Resort stay and returned the day after our Disney stay. The resort is great!! The pool was nice and relaxing and had things for the kids to do during the day. The room was clean and comfortable and had ample space for a family of 5!! I would return here without question if given the opportunity! Doris at the front desk was also most helpful in helping me book one more night when we decided we needed another one before heading back to Ohio. There is a plus and minus to the food options. The plus is kids eat free at the connected Applebee's Restaurant. We did take advantage of this our first night there and the food was great! The breakfast buffet on the other hand was not up to par. The food really wasn't that good and for the price paid I did feel I paid way too much. I have had better prepared, and the same type of items, at a free hotel breakfast while at many different hotels in the past. I would not let the food deter me from staying here again though!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beachtraveler Great location
Great location, nice staff. I wish there was a true wall between the two sleeping areas. Free breakfast was not that great, but I would not hold that against HI. I do think HI should offer their own brand of breakfast vs. sending us to the restaurant. Pool is fantastic! Easy access to Disney, highway, many eating options.. This is a keeper!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Goodyuvm Good value
Aside from one glitch I was very happy we the quality of this hotel.
When I booked at this hotel I was looking for a suite with a closed off bedroom as we had 3 adults and one of those adults is a snorer. I asked more than once prior to booking if the king kids suite had a completely walled off separate room and was told it he kids bunk beds were a separate room. Beware...they are not. When I brought the issue up to guest services I was told "whoever booked you should not have told you that. We will speak with them." However, this did nothing for the situation I was in and for three nights I barely slept. Disney Parks w a 9 yr old on little to no sleep is not a walk in the park. I did not feel they properly handled this situation. And offered nothing for their mistake.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bpearl Perfect place if you have a dog
So nice to find a quality hotel that allows dogs w/ o a crazy fee. We've stayed here twice w/ our dog, and plan on another visit. You do not get room service with a pet, but the staff was wonderful getting us extra towels and accessories. We love getting the oversized exterior rooms, more spacious than the average hotel room.
This hotel is conveniently between Disney and Universal. There is also Disney Village right down the street.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nightfire79 My first time over night in Orlando
This hotel has a convenient location.. I had the "luck" of coming during spring break..Even with that said I was offered an upgrade being a Platinum IHG rewards club member. The check in time was lengthy but no fault of the night audit person as they had some international guests. The room was well appointed and I did not have the cleaning challenges mentioned by some others in previous reviews. I did however have a couple opportunities to mention to the management. The service at the Applebees was very rough around the edges from the hostess to the server... food quality was as it should be.. The other note is for the front office... I was offered my welcome bonus for being platinum however it has yet to be deposited into my account. Other hotels usually have that addressed by time i check out or with in a few days. These wont stop me from coming back because the location and overall experience else wise were very good.

We had a great time!! The staff was excellent! The room was super quiet. Our only complaint was breakfast. It wasn't great and the staff in the restaurant just didn't have it together in the mornings. The shuttles were always on time and we never had a problem getting to and from Disney! Overall great place and great price!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JJJ and K family Good accomodations specially the kids bunk bed
Room cleanliness was fair. found unwanted hair on bed upon check in. they did however sent room cleaning personnel right away to change the linens. Free shuttle service to theme parks is a plus. it is close by restaurants and convenience store. There is no free breakfast included in this package.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Petalsay Good hotel if a bit noisy
We have just come back from a 10 night stay at this hotel and while it was on the whole a good hotel we were disappointed that the hotel was full of young students especially our first week . They were noisy in the corridors and also around the pool. We had been upgraded to a pool view but as the pool is open until 11pm it was far too noisy. I thought hotel pools closed at sunset. There were a couple of issues with the room housekeeping but each time we complained it was dealt with immediately. The staff were always courteous.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pope716 Great for a Family
This was our third stay at this hotel in the last 2 years plus we have friends that have stayed with us also. It is great for the kids plenty to do and I feel extremely safe for the kids. The hotel completely surrounds the pool and play areas so the kids can go down stairs to the pool area and not have to go 4 buildings down. We love Applebee's. I do wish this hotel had a continental breakfast but I understand why it does not and it does have a store on the grounds which is great. I have learned it is cheaper to wait until the day I am ready to go and get my room. When I booked it two weeks in advance it was $80 more than the weekend we went. (BUT Carol was great and she adjusted the bill before I got there.) My complaint with the hotel this trip was that two parties in our group booked the junior suite which clearly states it sleeps six. When I made the reservation with Carol for my sisters Jr Suite I was told that the couch is not a pull out and she would have a roll away bed in the room and that there is no additional charge for that room (I made the reservation for 3 adults and 2 children). However once they got there they had to ask for the bed and was charged $15. I am disappointed that on the website it clearly shows six but the room doesn't sleep six. (Two queen beds only) When we told the girl at check out that we was promised a roll away for free she didn't care and wouldn't reverse the charge. Besides that I love this hotel. I love NOT being on International Drive but only a few mins away. Also plenty of shopping in the area.

The room and service was excellent, we loved it. I did not like that the prices was 148, one week and then 118 the following week. The increased by thirty something dollars for the week that we stayed there just because it was spring break, and then 118 the following after spring break was a little ridiculious. when I asked about it at check in I was told they do that because of spring break. Besides that, we loved it and will return to stay again next year hopefully for the better price :)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TFields9692 two days of pure discomfort
The entrance to this hotel is unbelieveable as to where to access if you are headed south on SR535,Also I was unaware that this was a pet friendly hotel and persons had hugh dogs such as pit bulls in the elevators.The bed appeared to have been made up and the linen not changed. I left a note for housekeeping to advise them of my findings of the bed only to find the bed linen was the same and had not been changed. I have stayed at many holiday inn,but the condition of the beds will probably cause me totake my business elsewhere

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ourfamilyof3 Great room, excellent value, skip Applebee's
We loved everything about our room. It was very spacious, with comfortable beds. We were upgraded to a kids' suite and our child loved having bunk beds and a tv. Everything was clean and well kept. The only complaint we would have was the noise from the pool area, but it was to be expected during spring break week with large groups.
We wold not reccommend going to the Applebee's downstairs. The food is ok if you are willing to wait a long time. One night, after waiting for the waiter to com to our table for 45 minutes #in an empty restaurant#, we finally left.
Aside from the resturant, everything was GREAT. If given the opportunity, we will definitely visit again and will definitely reccommend to others.
