Ended up staying here because the 2 chain hotels in the area were full. Room was $95 and beds were very comfortable and clean. Definitely a older hotel but much better than most hotels in the Keys. I would definitely stay here again if in the area and the steak house directly next door was excellent and great prices.

Our visit was for a race in Sebring, only hotel avail nearby. We booked 2 rms 102 and 120 and both a dump. We discovered old stained blankets, old mattress, bd-pread -not clean, hole in bath door, mold on tiles.

When our WALLET DISAPPEARED from the room, the management immediately went into DENIAL MODE rather than investigate, or at least humor us and tell us that they would investigate. We ended up filing a police report, just to force them to respond and to keep a better eye on their security, for the sake of future travelers. According to the... More

First impression i was weary. But when I walked into the lobby and it was super clean and smelled wonderful I knew it would be fine. The owner was super friendly and they have easy truck parking for any other driver out there. If you need clean, affordable, and a good breakfast. This is it. No signs of bugs and... More

Rather than go 3 more miles to the Holiday Inn (and 3 more miles back in the morning to our destination, Bok Tower Gardens), we tried Green Gables (and yes, the gables are even lit up at night in green neon). Pleasant management, quiet (after turning off fridge) but dark room at the back overlooking greenery, a bit old and... More

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Green Gables Inn several times when I visited the Frostproof, Florida area. I have always had a great time. The rooms are wonderfully priced. They could use a bit of renovation but they are working on that. The staff is great and considerate. Location is super considering there is really nothing... More

Our first night started with a cockroach the size of Texas and a frog in the room. Although the owners are nice, the overall experience was not good. I bought a can of wipes and used most of them cleaning up before I touched anything. And I am not usually one of those types. Poor cleaning. Will look for another... More

I raved about this place two years ago and was happy to visit again. However, I agree with the other recent reviews. I was somewhat disappponted because the hotel didn't seem to have - I don't even know what to say - the same owners were there, and they were friendly, but that was about it. It seemed a little...

The web page was very misleading. The staff was friendly and helpful, but didn't feel safe staying here. Will try to find somewhere else to stay when we come back to Lake Wales. Some of the pictures must have been taken at an earlier time, because it needs a lot of revamping to look like what the pictures make it... More
