We had an excellent overnight stay. The hotel is easy to find, with easy parking. The staff was very friendly and welcomed us with delicious holiday sugar cookies. Room was very clean. Good breakfast too.

The suite was reasonably large and the mattress was excellent. The staff was very pleasant. Breakfast was typical, but the hostess was lovely. The filter on the a/c unit needed changing...there was a musty smell when the unit was on. We asked for a "no pets" room...the hotel apparently allows pets in some rooms. Overall, the accommodations were decent.

We had wanted to include Lake Wales on this trip on the advice of friends. Picked the Holiday Inn based on reviews. The room was spacious and very we designed. The laundrette facilities were useful as we are away for a month. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. But Carol and Raymond in the breakfast room were extra... More

Staff was friendly. Room was clean and smelled good. Felt comfortable. Would stay again. Even my son was happy. We saw another hotel that was 75$ a night and it was horrible. This is exactly what we were looking for especially after a long day at Lego land.

We stayed a couple of nights here while in the area to go to the Sun N Fun flyin at Lakeland. It was as super easy drive over to the site - the rooms were clean and very quiet. A good value for the area.

We met up with friends to cycle on some of the more rural and less traveled roads just over an hour south of Orlando. We had a couple of great rides made even better by the outstanding hospitality we received at this HIE. We phoned a head a day or two earlier asking for an early check-in, and while they... More
