This hotel is old and falling apart which might not have bothered me so much if it had been clean. At $140 for a night it was way overpriced. Forget about aesthetics; this is a bed to sleep in (with earplugs) if you must and a place to shower if you dare. Our room had the basics: two small beds,... More

The options in Winter Haven for dog friendly hotels are limited. With that said, I was glad to be able to have my pooch with me on a week of hybrid vacation / business travel. Clearly the property is undergoing a much needed facelift. Don't let the word Grand in the name conjour up images of a resort convention center.... More

Pool was nice, breakfast was great. The rooms facing the road are not great, carpet is old and smells weird same as the bed sheets. I found hair I the bathtub the first day there. No fridge or microwave which it was hard for us with kids. Walked to Legoland both days didn't pay for parking.

First time ever I had to ask for a different room due to spiders on the ceiling and feeling unsafe in this dirty room. Front desk staff was nice but rarely answered the front desk phone. I had no a/c in my room the second night and in the morning couldn't get the shower water to turn on for anything.... More

Our room was nice and clean. The house keeping staff was wonderful, they always greeted us with a smile. The pool is huge, aswell as clean, and beautifully lit at night. We had a wonderful stay and will deffinitely be back.

The staff was great. Very friendly and accommodating. The hotel was in pretty good shape, clean and tidy. It is a little older and has some wear and tear. The most noticeable thing was a little darkness under the shower wrap. But we spent very little time in the room during our 4 day stay. Most was at Legoland and... More

There are multiple reasons why I would not recommend this hotel. The hotel condition itself is very old and feels dirty and has a horrible old musty smell. My shower had mold all across the bottom. The carpet was old and felt dirty. There are many rooms with outside doors and even a building that is completely detached from the... More

This hotel has potential to be serviceable, but in its current state it is not. While not dirty, there are loads of updates and improvements that need to happen. Its location and "view", basically an abandoned lot, does not help. Though, it is not a bad area at all. In fact, it's a solid location overall with food and shops... More

The building is an expansive motel-type (external entrance) property. While the sheets and towels were freshened each day, the room lacked updated amenities, decor and furnishings. Much of the aforementioned were in poor repair, and it would be difficult to say that the room was "clean." Staff was friendly and courteous, but there was ample evidence of common housekeeping and... More
