Relaxing solo trip

Exceeded expectations. Comfortable beds, large, clean bathroom. Micro, fridge and coffee pot (w/good coffee) was great to have. Management and staff were absolutely wonderful-couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. Didn't have a car and wouldv'e been nice to use their shuttle to the parks to get closer to my next destination but on schedule it stated no luggage allowed so I didn't even ask to do so. Many places to dine nearby besides onsite Applebee's, which also served breakfast (which I didn't try). Would definitely stay again.

Good location, big room

The location is good. Not far away from the Disney World and the shuttle bus to theme parks is great convenient. Also, it near the premium outlet and just 10 buck to get there by taxi. The room is big and clean. Recommended.

Great 1st time in Orlando

This was my husband and mine first trip to Orlando. I wish there would've been a shuttle from the airport to the hotel and vice versa. The check in was very easy, there was a hotel fee that covers parking that you have to pay $15 per day which we didn't need parking but oh well, "resort fees". Other than those two things everyone was very friendly and helpful. They have trip coordinators in the lobby that helped us set up a package for Disney world, Epcott, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure and Seaworld. He was very helpful and knowledgable. We used uber services and didn't use taxis because the prices were much more expensive. Rooms were cozy and clean and plenty of towels. Overall it was a nice stay.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Adults visiting Orlando who like more roller coasters and adventures Id say skip Magic Kingdom and Epcott and visit Universal and Islands of Adventure and Busch Gardens.

Good hotel for the price

We stayed at the hotel for one night and were satisfied with the stay. It's a Holiday Inn Resort so we knew what to expect. The beds were comfortable, however the pillows were mush. But overall, the room was very clean, everyone was friendly and the location cannot be beat.
