It is unfortunate that I can not give a better rating. This hotel is quite obviously under renovations (except for the lobby which is gorgeous) but I was so scared for my four year old to get on the elevators. The elevator near the front of the hotel lurched downward and my husband and I very seriously contemplated carrying all... More

Our family attended a wedding reception recently and the hotel was very pleasant. The ballroom and lobby were very well decorated and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The best part was the food provided by the catering service, who were very professional and showed great service.

We arrived late and they gave a special rate. That was nice. The bed was clean, and the room, a suite, was large. They do need to replace the fold out couch though. As for breakfast, yum. It had everything you could ask for. I would go again.

I paid $45 a night on Groupon. I've been to every theme park in the country. Rooms are decent, free breakfast, and great location to Legoland. Anyone that complained about this place is used to staying at a five star. I would definitely stay here again.

I'm in town working for the next few months. I picked this hotel because I was able to get a weekly rate of $299, which included housekeeping only once a week. This hotel is immediately outside of LegoLand, which used to be called Cypress Gardens. I think back in the 1967 when this hotel was built, it was probably trendy.... More

OK but dated and Spartan. Has a bar. Restaurant food is plain. Breakfast is minimal. Some nearby restaurants. Some do to serve alcohol (check). Near Legoland. 15 miles to skydiving in Lake Wales. Lots of parking.
