Stayed in 2 bedroom 2 bath suite, loved setup rooms on opposite sides of living, kitchen area, plenty of privacy. Full size appliances. Could use some waste baskets in bath and bedroom. Hallway plain, deceptive, get to room really nice. Really walking distance to universal. TGIF right next door. Parking a little tricky, read signs.

We traveled from Miami to see the one and only Rolling Stones in Orlando; hence we needed a hotel that is well located, but does not necessarily offer crazy amenities, upscale services, and fancy restaurants. We needed a bed and a shower. Holiday Inn definitely delivered. Check-in was effortless and quick thanks to Charlene. She even helped us with few...

We got to the hotel very jet lagged after an international flight. It was after 10 pm but still very noisy and crowded with partying at the TGI Fridays next door.
