“Good bargin”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2010

The current owners have painted inside and out and upgraded the HVAC system in each room. I have family in area and stayed here off and on over several years and with several owners. I am a senior citizen on a limited budget and I like the price. My dog stays with me and she says it is ok. It is an older facility and the rooms are not large but ok for one or two people. Reasonable safe area of town. If you want a bigger, more modern place with a pool check out Green Gables on US 27. It is more expensive but you get what you pay for.

My husband and I stayed here when we visited the Lake Wales area and were not impressed! The area is sketchy and a man knocked on our door asking for money to feed his dog though the animal was nowhere to be found. The room itself didn't even have a phone in it. Will not stay here again!

First, this property is not "English owned" as claimed on their out of date website. The owner is actually a nice lady from Haiti. The motel is located near a busy highway overpass and there is often vehicle noise. The A/C fan can be left on which provides "white" noise to help block out that of the traffic. The area is slightly rundown but the property itself is well maintained even if somewhat dated. My room had a king sized bed which was quite comfortable. Other room appointments were nice and included a microwave and mini-refrigerator. Generous bathroom amenities and extra thick towels were a plus. Internet service was not available. Everything was scrupulously clean. Overall, this was a very satisfactory stay in a town which is seriously lacking in lodging availability.

  • Liked — Clean, good value, had everything I needed
  • Disliked — surrounding area
  • Tips/Secrets — Try to book on the West side of the street

I decided to take my kids to disney world but could not afford to stay in a fancy hotel. A friend of mine suggested the prince of wales motel. We enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was very pleasant. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone on a budget who wants to stay in a nice clean place.
