I'll Start off with the positives. Hotel location is great for the parks, only five minutes away. Shuttle bus to and from the parks are very good also. Staff at the hotel are very helpful and friendly. First impression of the hotel was great, theres a restaurant right next door, lobby looked lovely and clean and fairly new, staff at reception were very friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately this hotel is very dated and in great need of a refurbishment ! I found that the cleanliness of the hotel was poor, had to be switched rooms due to stains on bed, dust on lampshade and hairs in bathroom. Hallways were filthy, loads of bits and stains on the carpets. Our second room was cleaner but not immaculate. Hallway leading to our room was just as dirty. The furniture in the rooms and throughout the hotel were either chipped, scratched, ripped or stained. I don't understand how Universal can partner with this hotel. The only reason we stayed there was because our travel agent recommend us this hotel. We did a cruise and stay and the stay involved the theme parks in Orlando and the cruise was around the Caribbean. I've also wrote a letter of complaint to the travel agent who recommended this hotel as this shouldn't be a recommendation. Collapse
Shabby but not so chic!

With Holiday Inn there is an expectation of higher quality, unfortunately, this particular property did not meet that expectation. This is a "has been" hotel. The food on offer is from an attached TGI Fridays which was already really busy. The room was dated and had a slight cigarette smoke odor. There was only one towel and no wash cloths in the rooom upon arrival and we also had to call room service for regular coffee pods, which after an hour did not arrive. I called Roomservice again several times but there was no answer after the initial contact. I then called the front desk, the bell desk, the property manager office...all no answer. I finally called the emergency line out of annoyance. I did get an answer and finally got our towels, washcoths and coffee. Fortunately the room was clean in general but don't scratch the surface. Oh! and there were no hangers in the closet making this part of the room completely useless! We will not be staying at this property again. Collapse

I'll start by saying the curb appeal & lobby appeared to be clean and somewhat updated and gave the appearance of what one would think of as a decent hotel. Check in was easy, quick and the man was friendly & courteous. Step off the elevator to our floor and it was quickly noted how old this hotel actually is. The walls were stained, the carpet in the hallways were stained, the smell of dampness and staleness quickly became apparent. I thought oh no, what did I just book for our weekend getaway? The room and lighting were dull and gave this creepy feel of a rundown hotel. The carpet was dingy. The bathroom was hideous and there was hair on the shower walls that obviously were not mine since we had just arrived! This made me gag, since if the bathroom isn't even clean then what does that say about everything else? End table was dusty. The main desk/ table in the room was gross, and was obviously not cleaned. My husband had to wipe it down. I honestly felt really grossed out to where I didn't even want to take my shoes off. I have NEVER felt that way about a place I have stayed at. The ice machine was broke or not even plugged in, water pressure was a joke. I feel bad for anyone with thick hair (probably would never be able to get your shampoo out). This completely ruined any type of getaway I thought we may have. We didn't even want to be in the room. I knew we would be at the parks and that's the only reason we stayed, and the fact I had already pre-paid and was told no refunds. I booked this because I'm an annual pass holder with Universal and my husband and I wanted to get away for the weekend (without the kids for once), so I figured the price was right and the reviews didn't seem too bad. Well I got duped on this one! I knew this wasn't going to be a 5 star hotel/resort (and I was ok with that) but I sure didn't expect what we experienced. Plenty more to tell, but I'll leave it at this. A complete disappointment. I will NEVER stay here, or recommend anyone else to stay here until they have a complete makeover. The only pros (and I mean ONLY) is the TGIF restaurant was connected and provided great service, drinks & food. Also, Universal is about a 20 minute walk or a 6$ cab ride away. Collapse

We had a training meeting in Orlando and it was scheduled at this property. We came early and enjoyed the parks around Orlando (Disney World, Universal) and enjoyed the location a lot. We also enjoyed the property. It was very well maintained, clean and the staff were very pleasant. The rooms were comfortable and the amenities at the hotel were very good as well (the Starbucks coffee shop is a nice feature). The property looks like it might have been here awhile, but it is hard to tell as it is in great shape. We enjoyed it a lot. Collapse

We stayed here and loved it. It’s directly across the street from Universal Studios. They provide transportation to Universal Studios. TGI Friday’s is walking distance. Employees were professional and were quick to respond to anything we needed. Already booked for Halloween for 2019. It had a small kitchen too. Collapse
