I love this hotel... I pull up and I see holiday decorations and it just sets the mood... I go in and I am pleasantly greeted and handled quickly so I may get to my room. I love that the hotel has privacy gates with a code. It makes me feel safer. They also do not put the room number on the key holder to protect guests as well. You have to have your key to enter the gate to enter the door to get to the elevator. Very safe!!!!! I walk into and immaculately clean room. The room is feather free as requested. The sheets, blanket, pillows, towels, and wash rags are all perfectly white as if never used. I love it!!! The room has everything I need with plenty of room to spare. I had a wonderful view at looking the pool area so I never felt alone or isolated from the world. The hotel is so close to the Disney parks, restaurants, and shopping. It’s great! I love that when I get in from the parks, so late at night, and I’m too tired to go anywhere... that there is a restaurant right there in the lobby!!! AppleBee’s. They even will do in room dining. I saved the best for last. The customer service is fantastic. All of the staff members are so pleasant. They talk to you like you’re a best friend. They always have a smile on their face. They’re always so eager to help and so sweet, sincerely. It’s much appreciated. I hope to return soon. Isabell, Danny l, and Tyler are some of the names that I encountered on this trip. Read less

We came for a week and visited multiple parks and Christina who runs the shuttles was perfectly organized, on time, and very friendly and communicative. She made the trip so much easier and helped us have a great time. She provides a schedule of what time she will take you to each park and when to pick you up. Great service! Would definitely recommend this hotel and Christina’s shuttle service to anyone coming to visit Disneyworld. Read less

Clean hotel, comfortable beds, and shuttle service to WDW best describes this hotel. I stayed at Holiday Inn for 5 nights. I used Uber to get to the hotel from Orlando International Airport. Staff were very welcoming. When I checked in, I checked the schedule and signed up for the shuttle to Disney World. Rooms are spacious with air conditioning, microwave, mini refrigerator, and flat screen TV. The beds are soft and comfortable. There is a large centrally located pool and jacuzzi for hotel guests. There are several nearby food options nearby-Applebee's, 7-11, Chick Filet, Wendy's. My stay at the Holiday Inn worked out very well for my Disney World vacation. Each morning I used the hotel shuttle to get to WDW. The shuttle to the parks worked perfectly for me. The rides and pick ups were on time. Our shuttle driver, Christina, gave us instructions on entering the parks, pick up times, and also shared tips on getting to the most popular rides. My co-shuttle riders were very courteous to each other; no one was late. This was an enjoyable vacation for me. I'll be back! Read less

I would start first with Sales Director Paul´s attention prior to my booking, responding to my questions and concerns, he was kind and responsive to my emails, reassuring me about all my doubts. The check in was perfect, Denny (or Danny, sorry, did not catch well his name) was friendly and efficient, welcoming and quick. The assigned room was beautiful, spacious, with a great pool view, the bed was so confortable and pillows as well, big TV, everything spotless, nice shower amenities. Very useful Frigidare, coffee maker and microwave, all came handy during my stay. The pool is so nice, the water was warm and clean, there is a nice bar by the pool as well. I am sorry I was not able to use it everyday as after the Parks I had some work to do and remained with no time. Oh, and the wifi is very fast, I really needed it and it was great speed. I had my dinners at Applebees next door, which came very handy too! Check out was even quicker, no need to do anything, and the girl also very friendly. Oh and Christina the lady who was doing the transportation to the Parks was great!!!! The hotel is absolutely well prepared in these tough times with social distancing and perfect cleaninless all around the establishment. I am definetely coming back next year!!! Thank you for everything and my compliments to the entire team!!! Read less
