Pleasant Stay Experience

Holiday Inn Express concierge were very accommodating with a late check out. They also provided complimentary shaving accessories and a toothbrush upon request. The breakfast spread was awesome and quite delicious.

Mediocre at best.

I stayed for 4 nights here, after the first day my room was cleaned to my satisfaction. The cleaning got progressively worse. Nor horrible but little things, like my towels were completely restocked or all of the trash discarded. The walls are thin and I could hear the person next to me as well as people running around in the halls. In addition, the blinds don't block out the lights of the city. I did however like the business computers and the staff was wonderful.

disappointing

I don't post reviews, but this one I think I need to. We always love the hotel chain because of it's cleanliness, value and complimentary breakfast, but this one is disappointing in the cleanliness. When we arrived late night, there was dried yellow drops on the toilet seat and small curly hair on the wall of the shower. I reported it to Lucas the front person that night and he was very apologetic and told me he will report it to the manager. I had to ask him for disinfecting wipes and clean the toilet myself because it was disgusting. The room carpet had lots of stains also. The following morning somebody called our room I couldn't answer since I was in the shower, and after that nobody called again or spoke to me about our experience. Also when I tried to print tickets from one of the computers at the lobby, the printer does not work. This hotel totally ruined my future expectations for the hotel chain .It makes one wonder what else they don't clean enough. I will say though that the location is very good and breakfast is okay.

Just right- amazing staff!

The staff here was amazing and the convenience of the shuttle and breakfast timings were great. I only wish they had more shuttle times both to and from the park throughout the day and also hat out room was a little small for a two bedroom. Oh and a fridge in the room would have been ideal as well. Other than that, was a good experience made possible by some great people. Thanks!

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Go to the Flying Fish at the Disney Boardwalk (which is free in and of itself and great for passing time on non park days). Food is amazing , pricey, but worth it!

Nice Location, Friendly Staff

I stayed here for 6 nights. Initially they had to put me in a smoking room which was awful. I didn't even know hotels still had smoking rooms. The lady at the front desk was kind enough to let me know that they could probably switch me to a non-smoking room on Sunday but I would have to call and check. The pool was small but nice, the fitness center was larger then some I've seen at this size property and the free breakfast was excellent. The worst part about the property though was the insane amounts of coupons that get shoved under your hotel room door.
