First- this property does not offer an airport shuttle. $60 for our family to travel via shuttle from the airport. You can catch an uber for a bit less if you are able to catch a taxi or (better yet!) the city bus to just outside the confines of the airport. Easy for a couple, or with older kids- a...

Our family of 6 stayed for 4 nights. The staff was super helpful. Phoenix, at check in, was very friendly. The housekeeping staff were attentive and promptly met our needs when asked. The beds were comfortable, as we've come to expect from Holiday Inn, and the water pressure in the shower was great as always. The carpet was a bit...

This was our 5th stay at this hotel and everything was great as usual except for one very important thing. Maid service for some reason was virtually none existent. We stayed for 13 nights and the maid only came on 5 occasions (2 of those after we complained) and when they did bother it was always late in the day...

Clean 2x bedroom suite. A little dated but clean. Shuttle to Disney world each day but probably a little far from the main action except universal. Staff ok without being fantastically attentive. Would stay again only if going to universal attractions most of the time.

The staff was very pleasant and responsive to my request and needs. The hotel room was clean and neat. The location was perfect for my visit to Orlando. I had business at the University of Central Florida and pleasure at the Disney parks so this location gave me easy drives to both locations.
