“Great night's sleep”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

My husband and I stayed here one night, as we were in the area for a quick trip to visit family. Even though it has a Lake Wales address, it is very close to the east side of Winter Haven, which is where our family lives. The hotel was clean and quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had a great night's sleep in the king bed, which is saying something because I rarely sleep well in a hotel. The breakfast was very adequate, and the man servicing that area was diligent about keeping the various food items available and the breakfast area clean and tidy. We were very pleased with our stay and will definitely stay here the next time we're in the area.

We were in the area to attend a graduation so this hotel had the ideal location. The staff members were pleasant and the beds were very comfortable. During breakfast, there was plenty to choose from and the host kept it stocked. The hotel was convenient to the mall, Kohl's was across the parking lot, and there was a variety of restaurants nearby. We stayed two nights, having fridge/microwave was a plus. After we had gotten settled in the room, we noticed our fridge was not operating properly with keeping food cold, the desk clerk offered to house it for us. We were pleased with our stay- two thumbs up!

This was a second visit to this property within a year. Everything was great, from reservation-check-in, room and breakfast. The property is not too old and is well maintained. Staff was professional and knowledgable of local attractions, eating establisments, etc. The location is very close to shopping, golf, groceries etc. Yet it is in a suburban setting which contributed to a quiet nights rest on a great bed.

So if you are traveling on US hwy 27 near Winter Haven, check it out.

This is a friendly clean hotel, I have stayed here with family and returned with friends. Plus it's next to Kohls and what's there not to like about that... Do I hear Shopping!!! Unfortunately Lake Wales itself is a little dead but there is a great Steakhouse, Norby's on Hwy 60 that we like to visit...

When you are exhausted you need a comfortable, clean, quiet place to get some rest. This is it! The staff was great, the room was all of the above and more! We had a little, stressed out dog with us and the room they gave us was close to the door thank God!

Room Tip: They were all nice but by the exits are the best.

This hotel was very clean. The staff was friendly. The pool was great. The continental breakfast (which I wasnt expecting much from) was actually great too! My son's favorite part of our stay was making his own pancakes at breakfast. Would definitely stay here again!

Dear Travelingman9876,

Thank you for taking time to write a review! It never stops amazing me how much kids love to make pancakes for themselves, and for everyone else, too. We are very happy that you had a great visit and appreciate so much that you shared it on this great site.

Please visit us again soon! We have plenty of batter for pancakes....

I don't have a good reason, but this is our first time I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express and all I can say is WOW! We came to the area for LegoLand and when we arrived we were impressed as soon as we saw the building. Our check-in was great and our room was more than I ever expected, super clean and ready when we arrived. We even got to meet the property manager, Mark, and he made sure our stay was going well. The breakfast was really good! Ray and Carol made sure we had everything we needed. All I can say is that Holiday Inn Express, especially this location, will be our first choice for now on. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!
