    Good

    The bathroom and overall appearance of the room was not clean. The room had a musty smokey smell to it and was under the impression the room was non-smoking. The beds appeared to be clean however I received some smaller bug bites around my right foot near the ankle area after sleeping in the bed. Elevators were slightly dirty and overall just not what we would expect staying at a Holiday Inn as we have thoroughly enjoyed staying at other Holiday Inn's throughout the country. And we decided to pay the upgrade rate to a suite and were happy with the space of the whole unit just not clean overall. The building is in a good location but were not happy. We are located in Fort Lauderdale and our next weekend trip to Orlando we will not consider Holiday Inn to be viable option for us.

    Location. Short walk to the Universal park Near the Outlet Mall

    Breakfast - No breakfast at the hotel. Option offered by the hotel is to eat breakfast at a TGI Friday next door, but the options for breakfast are terrible.

    A really good location close to the Universal theme parks. Free on site parking and free Wifi.

    There is a shuttle to Universal, but only a couple of times a day. The morning ones were always fully booked and you can't use them to come back if you didn't go to the theme park on them. You can walk it in 20 mins, but there is little shade.

    Bedroom doors looked like a prison. Hotel seems to need an upgrade

    Fabulous

    The room was clean and comfortable. The king size bed was comfortable. I loved the furniture in the room. The mini fridge and microwave was great to have.

    Our remote didn't work to the television the first night. Someone came up to fix it and it still wouldn't work. When we called the next day to let them know it still didn't work, they sent someone up to fix it and I guess it was someone who knew what they were doing this time. Also I didn't like the fact that they have pay per view movies, but you don't find out how much it is until you check out.

    Very good

    The location of this hotel is fantastic if you are visiting City Walk and Universal Orlando as it is a 15 minute walk to all attractions, the rooms are clean, new and spacious. It is worth the stay for a night or two when visiting Universal Orlando on a budget solely for the location.

    Overall, the staff were very unhelpful, I asked how to get to the mall via public transport and nobody could help with as much as where a bus stop was. I ended up googling it myself only to discover a bus terminal 15 minutes away in the universal parking lot. I asked at the concierge to purchase a 1 day universal ticket to escape queuing at the gate and she could not help, as she said she just dealt with mulitday which ended in queuing for 45 minutes at the gate. The pool area is very poor and at the side of a motorway with tiny towels provided.

    The location was Prime! the room was beautiful and clean... I would absolutely stay here again. The room service was affordably-priced and food was delivered still warm. My bed was incredibly comfortable!

    The gift shop could have been a little bit bigger and have a larger selection. I had to buy a few items and had to drive to the Walgreens. Also the shop could be open a little big longer.

    Good location and nice room and friendly staff.

    The guest service staff tried to send us to a time share presentation in another Holiday Inn hotel. The lady in question never told us it was a time share presentation. This was dishonest and obviously a money making scam. It wasted my precious time and money on transport, but luckily I had the sense not to proceed with the presentation once I discovered what it really was. I enjoyed the stay up to this point, but because of this scam I will never stay in a holiday inn hotel ever again. It is a disgrace that the staff can act like that.

    Smoking rooms are disgusting! Stinks! We ordered non-smoking but have been located in smoking for one night. Non-smoking room I've got was also stinking, less but still. I would not recommend this hotel.

    You could here the conversations of the next room and it disturbed me. The bus to Universal did not run all day. I wanted to go over early afternoon and they told me it had stopped for the day.

    Superb

    I was able to bring my dog and she was safe. I loved the location and that there was a restaurant. Service was friendly and courteous! It's also nice having a little gift shop with food.

    Honestly feel the hotel needs some sprucing with carpets and sheets. Also, just stayed in December, but need to say again: Pull out couch mattress is awful and NEEDS to be replaced.
