This was a very nice hotel. Friendly. Clean. Beautiful. I only gave it 4 dots because it is located a little too far off the beaten path for me. It is at the airport. But everything we wanted to do was in town. Kind of off by itself. Had to drive to everything. There are plenty of hotels that you... More

Good Accommodations, clean room, nice lobby. Would have been better if breakfast was included. Hotel staff was friendly for the most part except some of the morning staff on one of the days was a little busy and seemed bothered by my request for extra towels. Overall, good stay. Wished I knew the Suite did not have a door. Would... More

Excellent location and wonderful hotel. Clean, safe location, awesome breakfast, highly recommend. Awesome staff. Plenty of parking spots. Cool little gecko's in the bushes out front. Big outdoor pool. Close to tons of shopping and restaurants. EZ drive to Tampa and a little over an hour drive to Orlando.

The hotel staff was great and very nice. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. The lobby was a nice place for our group to sit around and talk. I would highly recommend this hotel especially for group stays

We picked this hotel due to previous good reviews and its proximity to LegoLand. It is only a 25 minute drive to LegoLand. Hotel is VERY nice. VERY clean, which is huge for me. The staff was very friendly. I do not have any complaints about this hotel. It is located literally right next door to an airport and you... More

Traveling on business was pleasantly surprised at this nice accommodation. Clean, comfortable, good food, nice lounge area. Had a little security issue with another guest that was managed by the night manager promptly. Mistaken room. Overall good experience

Well-trained friendly staff assisted members of our group of WWII Veterans that were in Lakeland for their Honor Flight to DC to see their Memorials. While at the Hotel over a period of three days, I observed several staff members that went way beyond what was required to make our group's stay memorable.

It was our honor to have you as guests in our hotel. Hilton Garden Inn Lakeland appreciates the men and women who served our country during World War II. From the sounds of it, the Honor Flight experience was pretty special. We know that's because of its participants many of whom (including yourself) were also our guests. Thank you for... More

At the end of a tough travel day, this hotel was a much needed breath of fresh air. Relaxing, comfortable, and clean allowed me to get the rest that I needed for the next day's meetings. I recommend this for business or leisure travelers.

Overall I am satisfied. The staff are polite and quality of service is good. Where Hilton can improve is by upgrading its menu with healthier choices such as olive oil cooked food, fruits, veggies, non-creamy soups and lentil dishes. The air conditioning can be lowered so its not freezing in the corridors. Maids should check under the beds for trash... More
