Very nice looking property in a shopping mall area and the rooms were clean and well appointed save for a bath tub. Check-in and out was smooth and friendly. Nothing to complain about, the value was excellent, and would stay again if in the area.

This is a new hotel, close to shops and Legoland. My wife & I, and our dog "Bandit" stayed 1 night at this Holiday Inn Express while our home A/C was being repaired. My wife chose it because it was dog friendly, but, while expensive it was a nice hotel and a very positive experience for all of us. We... More

We booked a room at the Holiday Inn Lake Wales for our visit to LEGOLAND. The location was about 5 miles from the park. As an IHG member, I was able to use my points for the reservation. The rates were very reasonable, had we not used our points. The staff was super friendly, efficient and very welcoming. The hotel... More

Everyone was very nice and helpful. Will recommend this hotel to others. Our shower didn't get hot but it didn't bother us. We'll stay at this hotel again next time we come down. They offer a shuttle bus to Lego land which is about 5 minutes away.

Very clean hotel, stayed one night for a baseball tournament. Very friendly check-in and front desk staff. Very comfortable beds!! Always nice to get a good nights sleep. They have breakfast but we didn't go. Also the pool area looked very nice.

Stayed here while umpiring a Little League baseball tournament. Very nice hotel. It was clean, staff was friendly, and enjoyed a nice breakfast in the morning. Next time I'm in Lake Wales, I will stay here again. Close to Bok Tower in the famous spook Hill.

Thank you for taking time to share! You are right, there are some unique places near the hotel - Bok Tower is beautiful and the legendary Spook Hill is a very odd place.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night while attending a wedding in central Florida. The staff was very friendly and the hotel was clean and convenient to everything in the area. The free breakfast left a lot to be desired, but it was free, so it is hard to complain too much about the food. If... More

For the price this hotel is great! Very clean, modern and spacious. Could not complain at all. The beds were nice so as the bathrooms. Breakfast is included and pretty good too. If you are in the area for any attractions like legoland this is only like a 5 minute drive! :)
