“Affordable near Disney”
Reviewed 21 May 2012

Check-in and check-out were fast, and the guest relations desk was always manned by very friendly staff with good suggestions for activities and driving directions. The room was OK---had a kids' suite, which my daughter loved. The view from our room was the parking lot; not a great view, but since our room didn't have a balcony, it really didn't matter. The hotel info doesn't tell you that kids suites do not have balconies; wish I'd known that. Room was clean, but carpet a little grungy looking. Very comfortable bed, but uncomfortable pillows. Bathroom was incredibly tiny! The pool and jacuzzi were nice. Didn't try the restaurants on site, but there is a McDonald's right next door for breakfast or a quick snack. The room was fairly quiet, but it's a pretty large hotel, so it's always noisy in the lobby. Also, more shuttle times would have been very appreciated, especially since this is a Disney Good Neighbor Hotel. Overall, a decent place to stay at the price

I booked a double bed room. The cheapest one. My balcony view was bad which overlooked the roof of the lobby and giant trash cans in back. The room was nice and neat, furniture was good, with a nice size flat screen. Small refrigerator was in room, seemed to take forever to cool off. Air conditioning kept room cold, but sure did cut on and off a lot during the night. The worst thing about the room was the bathroom was very very tiny. It was very awkward to sit on the toilet, the door was right there. The size of the bathroom was just horrible. The bathroom was clean and tub was nice, it was just way too small. This had to be a design flaw. For the good, I will say the bed was extremely comfortable, although the pillows were flat. Other than that it was a typical room.

Room Tip: Make sure your room has a descent size bathroom.

This hotel is very kid friendly with an arcade in the lobby. It also features a kids suite that contains a bunk bed for the kids sectioned off by a wall with an opening at the top which showcases where the adults sleep. A great 2 for 1 effect! Very inexpensive! Oh and the breakfast buffet was great; you have to pay in advance but all you are really responsible for is the tax on the food which I believe came out to almost $4 bucks for a family of four. Will definitely return again! It is in an ideal location as well with shuttles to SOME parks.

Everytime someone asks for a great priced hotel in the area I always recommend this Holidsay Inn. we use it for business and Disney/ Universal trips. Stayed here with our whole family many times. Always enjoy it.

My husband and myself went to the hotel for just one night to getaway from the kids & our day-to-day routine. We checked in after we got out of work & was very impressed by how quick & friendly the front desk people were. The rooms were lovely, with a beautiful balcony view of the pool area. The pool area was well kept & clean, as was the exercise room. We got a snack @ the A&W inside, & again the staff was courteous & helpful. I will DEFINITELY be going back! We've been to multiply hotels on this road & not impressed, we were OVERLY impressed with this hotel!

Holiday Inn was a very nice place to stay. The landscaping was beautiful and well kept. The lobby was neat, the staff was friendly, and the gift shop had everything you forgot to bring. The bathroom in the room was a little small, but this is not home. I was overall very pleased with my experience.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool can be noisy but exciting. Depends how you look at it. Pool closes at 11PM.

This is a very typical and average Holiday Inn property in the USA. The lobby was small and crowded but the check-in process was speedy. The staff also gave me all the appropriate information about the hotel. There was also a separate Guest Services desk in the lobby for general questions about the area.

I stayed in one of the rooms on the top floor (8th) in the building at the back. It was spacious and modern. The bathroom was clean and adequate. The bed was comfortable with the well known 'pillow menu' on offer. The air conditioning was functional but a bit noisy. There was tea / coffee making facility and a mini fridge. I was also quite pleasantly surprised with the complimentary wifi which was accessible from the room and public areas.

There was a pool which I didn't use as it was almost always too crowded. Apparently this hotel is very popular with schhool groups and this was evident when I was there. The buffet breakfast on offer was adequate but a bit of 'school canteen' like.

Overall, a very average hotel but perfectly adequate for a short stay.
