Had to attend meeting in the area and needed a place for one night. Saw the sign and got a room. I was the only guest at the hotel and after seeing the room I know why. My room reeked of cigarette smoked even though I asked for non smoking room. Bed looked it had not been made with clean... More

Probably the worst place I've ever stayed! We were in Lake Wales and didn't have many choices because there was a shooting competition going on and all rooms were booked. Let's see, dirty towels, dirty walls, the door didn't lock from the inside so we put our cooler and the chair in front of it while we slept. (Tried to... More

The tv didn't work and management had trouble getting it started up. Hairs on the ledge of tub. Rust on fixtures, stains on bed sheets, VERY UNCOMFORTABLE bed!! We didn't sleep all night! Dead roach in room. Bad odor in room and we never once saw a "sparkling pool" as advertised. It was so miserable that we checked out a... More

I was very disappointed with the condition of the room which included dirty sheets, debris on the bed quilt, dirty towels, and a foul odor in the room. I had to contact the manager on duty several times in order to have the above addressed. In addition, the evening manager did not (apparently) know the correct way to connect to... More

If you need a cheap (comparatively) place to stay in this area, this place will do. Expect a bed and a shower. Any more than that and you'll be disappointed. :-) The breakfast is minimal. All carbs, no eggs or meat. That's all I can say.

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.

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
