Imagine it, crowded front office full of people eager to check in, loudly speaking in the lobby prepared for their event group. Rather than bickering they were gleaming ear to ear from the delightful service they were provided from Sabrina and Damaris whose energy honestly radiated across the room. I personally got checked in by Revan, and saw first hand where the amazing training the rest of the staff obtains comes from! Always a delightful stay!

I just have to say that I have stayed in so many different hotels during many trips and this hotel has exceeded all of my expectations for its class. I was traveling with my 1yr old and 9yr old during spring break. The hotel was spotless, you always saw people cleaning 24/7 whether it be the pool area, the floor hallways, the lobby, everywhere. Even when we were out at the pool the housekeepers had grabbers and we’re going through bushes and flower beds picking up the tiniest of trash. Also when they were cleaning the rooms you could see that they came out on all the balcony’s and wiped down the chairs. The room was perfect, the bed and pillows were comfy and the sheets were the best part, extremely soft. Our house keepers were very friendly, google translate came in handy since most did not speak English. We always were able to have fresh towels right away if we asked. The pool area was perfect, especially the kiddie pool. Another great thing was the pools towels were stocked constantly all day long. They had washers and dryers on 2 different floors which washed and dryed our clothes great and surprisingly was very cheap. Also was nice you didn’t have to use any cash, it took credit, debit and tap pay. Dollar Tree and McDonald’s are right next door for any items you may have forgot or a quick snack. Pizza Hut, Checkers, and BK are across the street along with Old Town. Everything within walking distance. PLENTY of parking, no driving in circles trying to find a parking space. They have a small alligator in the pond in the back that attracts a lot of attention from guests. We got to watch him a lot from our pond view balcony. We didn’t get to try the breakfast buffet or food from the restaurant. You can tell this hotel has a great management team and really cares about the property and employees. If I’m not staying on Disney property this hotel will always be my go too in Orlando! 5stars all day long.

This place was great! We were just looking for a place to rest around a day trip to Disney and since we are IHG members we decided to go with a brand we knew. Little did we realize how nice this place would be. Generally the hotels near the resort that are reasonably priced are real dumps. Not this one! They have a heated outdoor pool and hot tub, a nice buffet hot breakfast if you choose to have it, a bar and restaurant and so close to Disney. We were less than 10 minutes from Hollywood Studios where we were going. This hotel also must have had an upgrade recently because the rooms were very nice. The beds were new and the carpets were nice. You can smell the fresh paint in the hallway. The hotel staff and housekeeping were all very nice when you asked for stuff. I'm so glad we went with this hotel. You won't be disappointed. Also there is a little amusement park across the street and lots of shopping and restaurants within walking or driving distance.

Upon arriving to the hotel it seemed dated. First off there was absolutely no security anyone can walk right in the building anywhere. Made our way to the elevator and 1 of the 3 worked. The one that worked sounded like it was ready to come crashing down. The hallway carpet was filthy to say the least. Got to the room and a shady guy was throwing fliers under the door for take out food at 11pm while talking loudly on his cell phone. Walked in the room and the smell knocked us back. No idea what it was but I had to go to Walgreen's next door and get a bottle of Febreeze. The phone was broke, their was food on the curtains and on the floor, the bathroom floor was like glue and had other debris on the floor. The shower head was absolutely filthy I doubt it was ever cleaned. Over the three day stay we had to ask for the room to be cleaned and for clean towels. The one day they came to clean they only changed the sheets did not vacuum or clean tile floors. I took my 10 year old son and dad and we are normal everyday people that run a business. I did not feel safe and if I was the local inspector I would condemn the hotel.

The day we checked in I took my kids for ice cream and when I picked my son up for a shoulder ride, I must have dropped my credit card.

When we got to the hotel, I had no way to pay for the security deposit so I was going to cancel my stay.

But Dana at the front desk worked with me so we didn't have to sleep in the car.

My new card was supposed to be delivered 2 days later and with only a limited amount of cash they worked with me until it came in the mail.

But then, my card didn't arrive as expected so Omar worked out a solution for 2 more nights stay.

Dana, Omar, Angelina, Maria, Many, Gio, Gabriel and Shy all deserve credit for helping save a family of 4 with 2 small kids from sleeping in the car.

My family and I all owe you a huge thank you and so much gratitude in a state 2,000 miles from home.

Thank you Holiday Inn Orlando SW - Celebration

Whoever owns this location has employees you don't see much anymore.

We found ourselves needing a one night stay while traveling and ended up booking through IHG. We arrived to find an outdated Disney Good Neighbor hotel that has definitely seen better days. The area seemed sketchy, but there were lots of people checking in. The staff was very accommodating in finding us a “just cleaned” room since we had just arrived at checkin time. We ended up in the second building in a king room on the 8th floor. I was not very happy to see a outdated facility, but kept quiet in order to not judge so quickly. I’m glad I did. We entered a room with a clean smell, good looking linens, dusted furniture and plenty of lighting - except in the bathroom where the light was so dim you could barely see yourself in the 1985 wall to wall mirror. I made a call to the front desk and within 15 minutes, maintenance has come to room and immediately began work on replacing the entire lighting fixture. In under 30 minutes, the new fixture was in and the bathroom was lit like Times Square. The gentleman was professional, skilled and expedient.

The tv was an updated smart unit with a good variety of channels. The cold refrigerator and microwave was clean and in great working order. The front desk called to see if everything was fine and we requested an extra set of towels as we are thinking of some time in the hot tub downstairs. Again, expedient and cheerful service from the staff with towel sets delivered to our room. The next morning we took advantage of the full breakfast buffet included in our stay. It was so much more than a continent breakfast, with a pleasant compliment of several staff serving eggs, bacon, sausage, French toast, pancakes, waffles, breads and muffins, a variety of juices and good coffee. This within itself beats out most $200 night hotels. Our check out was a breeze.

We travel through the area annually and usually make early reservations at an upscale name hotel, but if you want great service at a reasonable price and a very clean room and extremely comfortable bed, you will not go wrong with this Holiday Inn.

I stay here every now and then due to my work being in the area and forcing me to work crazy hours. So it's just easier to book a few days here then to commute back and forth every day! I wish I could get it slightly cheaper, but out of all the hotels in central Florida, they are the cheapest and nicest!!

Front desk lady (I'm bad with names, sorry) she checks me in all the time, she's a sweetheart and full of energy even so late at night. I love her and I hope the company is paying her well for how amazing she is!

I got one of the renovated rooms and was nice. I like the modern feel and look. I just wish housekeeping could have cleaned the room better, but they might be understaffed, so I can't fault them too much. The tub had someone else's hair and there was light trash in odd places lol. Like a tissue on top of the picture on the wall..

But my biggest issue was the door! Was ajar when I arrived at my room and maintenance did they're best to fix it, but was needing to be taken down and adjusted to close properly. So for my stay I had to really slam the door to close it properly or otherwise it didn't close. So everyone around had to hear my door getting slammed at midnight and 5 in the morning. Sorry neighbors.. Hopefully they fix it properly for the next guests.

Oh and one other thing the tub was VERY slippery!! They need to either put a sticker down or provide a non-slip water resistant rug to go in there! On my first night I almost killed myself trying to take a shower lol!! I used a towel the other nights to keep from sliding. Not safe FYI.

And lastly parking is kind of an issue there. Especially if you arrive late. They need to build a garage in the back and redesign the front IMHO. Also the road out front is a mess, I hit a bunch of pot holes coming in and leaving!! God only knows if any damages was done to my car!! I learned to drive in a way to avoid them after the fact. Please get those taken care of Holiday Inn!!

Other than that, everything was great and I love to stay there, I just wish it could have been for pleasure instead of business.

8 out 10.

I have stayed at this hotel many times in the last decade but it had been a while since my last visit. My family got Disney passes for Christmas so we decided to go very last minute for the weekend. I found a great deal on this hotel and when we stayed here, I was reminded why this is a great place to stay when visiting Disney. The hotel is a little older and could use some updates (and hopefully the back elevators are fixed by our next visit) but has always been very clean and pleasant when I‘ve stayed here, especially for the price. On this particular visit, I was greeted by Dana at check-in who was extremely friendly and helpful. She made such an impression that I am writing this a few days later and still remember her name and pleasant demeanor. She was able to get us a King suite on the top floor and it was nice and spacious. When we come with our older two children, we like the room with bunk beds. This room is the closest you can get to a two bedroom but still a very reasonable price. The hotel itself is very family friendly too with a breakfast buffet downstairs, right next to the doors leading to a large pool area with a kiddy pool too as well as a small playground. I’m also told the pool is heated but we did not have a chance to try that out this visit. We will likely be here lots this year as it is very convenient to drive to Disney (10-15 minute drive) and also near tons of restaurants and even the Gaylord Palms just around the corner.

If you’re looking for a good family friendly hotel near Disney with great staff and a very reasonable price, this is it!

My husband and I stayed overnight and we’re very happy with the hotel. It was the beginning of spring break so the prices were very high everywhere so we decided to stay at the Holiday Inn because they were reasonable and I was a little nervous at first but once we arrived I was pleasantly surprised. The woman Donna at the front desk was great. We upgraded to the renovated room which was great. We usually stay at a Hilton and I thought the room was just as nice at the holiday inn which was a big surprise because the price is about half. We were only coming for one night to eat dinner somewhere nice in Orlando so we knew we wouldn’t be using the room too much but it was perfect for what we needed. The pool area definitely wasn’t as nice as some of the resort style places I’ve been to but the actual room was fine. I also wouldn’t recommend the breakfast. A lot of people said it was good and I disagree. The eggs tasted like they were from powder.

We stayed one night in the non renovated part of the hotel but were upgraded the next night for the rest of our stay. The rooms are clean and the beds super comfortable. We found the staff super friendly and helpful. Owor was so sweet and went above and beyond for us every time. The hotel has lots of amenities and is within walking distance of old town as well as great restaurants and shopping. We would recommend this hotel for value and comfort as well as convenience. There are free rides to Disney but not the other parks and we found it a lot cheaper and comfortable to Uber to these places rather than using the shuttle. Overall it was awesome
