If you like nostalgia, then this is the place. The staff was super friendly and really have no complaints except the window a/c could not keep up because it was so hot out. There is alright view of the lake and there is a popular restaurant next door.

Stayed here for an SCCA race at Sebring International Raceway. .as we always do. We had our annual pool party there as well. The cabins by the pool are great. Be careful...the water gets super hot as each cabin has it's own water heater! Lots of room for continental breakfast in the lobby. Cool old pictures and racing posters in... More

This hotel is 99 years old this year. It has a long history which they have preserved on the walls in the lobby. We had a little eff. by the pool and it was nice and quiet. We love staying there. There is wifi, my teens were happy with it. It is an old hotel. They have some quirks, but... More

The Kenilworth Lodge seems to elicit two reactions either delight for its old Florida charm and accommodating staff or disgust because its not all new and shiny like the Holiday Inn Express down route 27. Please read both responses and judge for your self what it is you want in a hotel before booking a room in an historic property... More

Love the Kenilworth!!! The place has a lot of character and history. There are Holiday Inns, Motel 6, Marriott, etc. anywhere - there is only 1 Kenilworth!! We stayed in 346 the Sebring Suite, and it was VERY CLEAN and charming. No place like the Kenilworth! We all want to return when we can stay longer insted of just one... More

I'm still here getting ready to leave....the dirty water in the sink from the previous inmates is still in the sink! The water does not go down! The smell in the room of, what is it? Maybe insecticide, but whatever, it didn't kill the German roaches. Make sure you zip you luggage closed so they don't get in. Bring lamps... More

This was once a great hotel, but declined over time, especially when they sold off their lake access. Still it has it charms. The hotel rooms, especially in the higher floors are large, as are cottages and efficiencies in the garden. They are showing their age, but the maintenance staff is making a gallant effort to keep them going. Many... More

the hotel is too old to charge such prices. the rooms are musty and one can hear next door neighbors. the breakfast is nothing to rave about. the staff is friendly but that cant make up for the hotel's deficiencies. perhaps a new ownership group could improve it.

The lodge was built in 1916 and has gone downhill over the years, but is still a grand old place. The rooms are small and cozy is has a large Ball room and a Grand Staircase. What a place for a wedding and reception !! The breakfast was a bust, go to the Palm Diner next door ( see review... More

This extremely historical hotel in Sebring, Florida, is really quiet sweet. We stayed in the individual cottages with our four legged babies. With the economy like it is, I am sure that the maintenance and upkeep of this hotel is really astronomical! It gives you the feel of a home town hotel with the allusion of grandiose in it's heyday... More
