What a pretty 1930's historic hotel overlooking Lake Mirror! Complimentary valet parking by very personable young men is your first hotel encounter. Upon entering the lobby you can smell the unmistakeable aroma of cedar from the beautiful ceiling. Front desk staff was inviting and efficient, although I was not advised of the free wifi password that I later heard others... More

The WiFi is great and state of the art. We have 3 networks that service the hotel and I am told by our provider (Brighthouse) that you could run 3 PDA's in each room simultaneously with out speed or access being an issue. I am sorry they failed to give you a password, I am sure it was just an... More

Enjoyed a business stay of two nights at this hotel. It located downtown and has a beautiful view of the lake. Room was average size, well appointed, and clean. The restaurant is gorgeous. Service could be better all around. When I arrived, I intended to self-park but was a bit surprised that the valet parking attendant/doorman did not make any... More

My husband and I stayed for one night after booking the room through Orb**z. The 6" thick mattress felt like you were lying on plywood. Neither my husband or I slept a wink. And, we had a business meeting the next morning in Lakeland! When I talked to the front desk staff the next morning, they looked up my room,... More

We would never give any guest an inferior product regardless of how they booked their reservation or for any other reason. The mattresses are firm, but of very good quality. More

This is one of our favorite small hotels to stay in. The service has been impeccable and every need catered to. The restaurant is extremely good! During Christmas holidays, carolers dressed in Victorian attire came through while dining, and it was a lovely time. The hotel is situated on a lake which makes for even a better experience. Highly recommend!

Wonderful! Not surprising this 1920's era hotel continues to charm so many guest. Offering modern upgrades and ammenities while maintaining the historical treasure of this property are testiment that todays demanding guests, such as myself, can find total comfort in this old hotel. One of my favorite stay places. Convenient to everything lakeland. Fun!

I was fortunate to get a great rate at this hotel and really didn't have great expectations for my stay considering the age of the hotel. Boy was I pleasantly surprised when we pulled up to this beautiful building with a great big front porch and a couple of rocking chairs. Check in went smoothly. The front desk clerk was... More

A couple years ago I noticed the Terrace Grille took a turn for the worse... The prices jumped, portions skimped, and changes to the preparations were unfortunate. I essentially stopped frequenting the Terrace Grille because it was not what I had been going there for many years any longer. Much to my joy, changes for the better have finally taken... More

This is a hotel worth the trip. Built when hotels still were important buildings in the middle of the business district, the Lakeland Terrace has what the giant H-boxes out on the Interstate can never have - Class. Built in the 1920's, it has been extensively modernized, and the rooms compare favorably with the Interstate hotels. Maintenance was questionable on... More
