My wife, GSD, and I had a great time at this hotel. When the dog is in the room you can leave a slip, which the hotel gives you. on the door so no one enters the room and accidentally lets your pet out. Our German was able to sit on the deck right outside of the pool deck and enjoy her time with my wife and I at night. The staff was really nice. The only negative I can say is there was an odor in the room probably from insecticide which is very commonly used in Florida hotels. We were used to it... Read more

This Holiday Inn facility was an unexpected pleasure. Rather than spending two or three hundred dollars a night on Disney property hotels we stayed at the Holiday Inn just outside the main entrance to Disney Properties. We had little or no traffic and were able to easily get around to other entertainment parks. This hotel is clean, very nice people assisting you, has a good restaurant and separate bar area. The swimming pool was a plus after a long day at the park. The kids loved coming back for... Read more

Front desk staff was great. . I got a free upgrade to a huge room with a king bed and 2 bunk beds in a separate room. The pool is nice and heated. Poolside bar is convenient, serves food and drinks. Clean hotel. Great location!! nice staff...only con was that one of the elevators didn't work so it took a while longer using one elevator for the entire hotel.

Where to begin? This used to be one of my favorite hotels but it's fallen to the bottom of the list. There's been an unusually high turnover in staff at the front desk (some weeks or a few months). The property hasn't been kept up. Elevators are constantly going down and out of service for days. There have been billing issues (charging cards without billing - multiple occasions). Staff moral is not what it should be at a resort. Flying / biting insects from the bushes outside invade the rooms fr... Read more

We stayed here for 2 nights while we went to the parks for a couple days on our way further south for our vacation. The room was nice with the kid bunks, the Applebee's in the hotel was a nice touch, and the pool was pretty large. I'm usually not an Applebee's fan but considering the kids eat free we he to eat there and it was not bad. The breakfast was a typical breakfast buffet, nothing special but it beats paying for breakfast in the parks if you are trying to save a little. Overall great exp... Read more

We stayed for 2 weeks at this hotel, it was clean with large roomsand a lovely pool. Staff very helpful, Applebee's on site only used once, too dark and shops across a very busy road. We relied on transfers to the theme parks which were great for going but the returns only started at 5pm so needed to get taxi's back if you had enough of the heat. Transportation needs changing for returns back to the hotel, Overall very happy with the hotel

Cost seemed decent and hotel included free shuttle buses daily that take you to the theme parks and back to the hotel, at specific times of the day.

My friend and I check in at 3:30 AM. The night auditor, Adam, greeted us and quickly took care of checking us in and getting us on our way. The resort itself is very clean and well kept. The guest room floors appear to be newly renovated with new finishes in the bathroom and bed area. My room was oversized and had a refrigerator that could hold a few six packs! The cleaning staff is also very friendly and always spoke to me when I met them in the hallway.

This was our second stay at this hotel. Hotel is clean, staff are always there to help you and very friendly. My son had such a good time that he didn't want to leave when it was time to go. Stayed there for 2 weeks, close to everything. Applebee's located inside the hotel and the kids eat free vouchers were excellent. Breakfast buffet was good just add $2.99 if you are doing the breakfast buffet and want your kids to have those Mickey Mouse waffles.

This trip was for a drop off at the Disney College Program. We stayed here 2 nights; 1 before, 1 after check in. The hotel was really great. I would recommend for someone looking for a Disney off property place to stay. It is no more than 10 min away from Disney parks, and a quick drive to Disney Springs. Hotel had an arcade, small movie theater for Disney movies, and there was always really cute things going on at the pool like Duck races, and dancing games for the kids. They had a conci... Read more

We had the pleasure of a two week stay at the hotel during mid August. We booked the Kids Suite A and were on the 6th floor in block C. The room was large, our king size bed was very comfortable and the children enjoyed the novelty of having bunk beds and their own TV. There was an interconnecting door in the room however which meant we could hear every word the guests in the neighbouring room said. Luckily the room was empty for the majority of our stay so it wasn't a huge problem. Our room ... Read more

Stayed at this hotel in August 2016 for a week and we really enjoyed our stay. The room was spacious with a pool view and separate room for our daughter. Staff were very helpful, especially the activities co-ordinator who ran the games by the pool for children.

Excellent location close to the Theme parks and for dinner is in a short distance a Golden corral and a BJ's, which serve perfect dinner ??? What I like is the little Gym in the hotel where I can do a little workout after a perfect day. Hope my opinion is a little helpful for your next vacation ??

For that price you can find better options, or at least more transparent.
