“I will be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

spent over a week here. Extremely clean and polite staff! Great room with view of pool, balcony, large fridge, microwave, 2 sinks, desk and table with 2 chairs and an in room safe. Very large room. This is a 2 storey building and has no elevator so may not suit all but we will return. Great location as only a 30 minute drive to Disney, Universal etc with no real traffic issues.

Room Tip: Ask for room with view of pool otherwise its a parking lot and you can hear the highway

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

We enjoyed this hotel. It is a bit older, but was nicely redone. Very large rooms w/character. Clean and bed were comfortable. Nice flat screen on the wall w/cable. Carpets fairly new. Hallways could use a little updating. Didnt like the house-type key for door either, would have preferred using the same door key, just so you didnt have to keep track of both when going in & out. Location great, right off the highway (near Grandma). Continental breakfast not as nice as some (no waffles, prepackaged muffins, bagels etc) but not bad. Great deal for the money. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: no elevator, so request downstairs if you can't climb stairs!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review the Travelodge Lakeland. Wyndham does not require Waffles for the Breakfast. But we do have a great selection of Muffins Bagels, Cereal, Juices and of course Wonderful Coffee and Tea! We are sorry for the inconvenience of having 2 keys. Since we have an inside corridor it is for our Guests safety and security which is the upmost importance to us. We hope you will stay with us again on your next trip to the area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. It looks like they have been renovated within the last couple years. The service desk was pleasant, the room was clean, and the breakfast is what I expected. The only thing that could have made it better was a waffle maker (I think Motel 8's do those) and better wifi. My room was right next to the router but it would still cut in and out every so often. I just used the business center (which is one computer, by the way) when I wanted to spend a little bit on the internet. Location was ok but you had to make a u-turn if you wanted to go into downtown Lakeland (not a big deal at all, I just hate u-turns). The pool is currently being renovated, FYI. Each room has a microwave and fridge (some Marriot rooms don't even have that). AC worked well, bathroom shower was nice, and the rooms have satellite TV with a bunch of channels and the TVs are flat screens. Also, they have balconies but i didn't use mine. I didn't check out the exercise room but you have to get a key from the front desk. All the rooms open up to a inside hallway that is only accessible from a key, so pretty safe.

Room Tip: Be next to the router, pool is being renovated, IHOP is almost attached to the hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to to write a review of your stay at Travelodge Lakeland. And thank you for letting us know of the issues with the wireless. We have fixed the wireless issues and now have outstanding reception though out the whole property! Yes our rooms have been newly updated and renovated. On your next visit ask one of our employees how to get out of the hotel without making that U-turn there is an easier way at the stop light. We hope you will visit us again.

If all you want is a clean room with a comfortable bed at a low price, this is the place for you. Everything is very basic, so expect nothing that is the least bit special.The wifi connection is very weak - a real hassle. The breakfast is basic:milk & cereal, fruit, begals and sweet rolls, OJ and coffee. Conveniently located right off of I-4.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side away from I-4; much quieter.
