This is a nice property with spacious rooms and lovely amenities. Having the Applebee's onsite and open late is a plus as well, and the staff couldn't be better. This isn't your typical "cookie cutter" Holiday Inn. We will be back!

The rooms were clean & very comfortable with full bathroom, however we were on the ground floor with a path outside which tended to be quite noisy with kids running to and from the pool at night & adults chatting at nearby tables. Next time we would ask for a room higher up. The check-in staff were friendly and helpful,...

There are much better places which are better staffed, more secure, and much nicer than this one. We stayed only one night, but that was more than enough for us. It was clean, but didn't feel very secure.

We stayed here for 3 weeks in July 2016 and overall we were very happy with this hotel. It was in a good location close to Disney, and I-Drive and Universal were both quite easily accessible. The hotel offered a shuttle service which we used a couple of times and seemed fine but we tended to use Uber taxis more...

Very nice hotel. Was clean and wasn't very noisy. The beds were very comfortable. They centered around children and had many kids activities throughout the stay. At times the pool was a bit crowded with kids but the kids were well behaved. Their was a bar next to the pool which is nice!

I was making a solo stay for a couple of days and this location provided a good base of operations. I was without transportation and appreciated the TGI Fridays right in the hotel.
