Great newer Hotel and above average for a Holiday Inn Express. Very clean rooms and premises, friendly staff and of course the trade mark pancake maker for a hot breakfast. Just off Hwy 27, convenient to Winter Haven, Spook Hill in Lake Wales and dining is plentiful within 5 mile radius.

We are a family of 4 and stayed for 3 days 2 nights. They shuttle to Legoland. It's in convenient shopping center with a Publix. The staff was friendly. Basic breakfast included. Room was clean and beds were ok. The pool is way too small though. Overall it was a good stay.

Stayed here for a trip to legoland. Two months ago I stayed at the legoland resort but at $600/night, it's a once in a lifetime sort of resort lol I read all the reviews and decided to stay here because at $149/night it had the most stars for the price. It was clean, and I'm a Germaphobe. The decor was... More

The beds here really need to be replaced and the front desk team said that would start in the next month. I would not recommend staying here until the beds have been replaced if you don’t want to fall into a hammock! We stayed two separate times. The first time the AC did not adequately cool the room. The second... More

We prefer to stay here for our lego land trips. Free and great breakfast buffet. Free coffee 24/7. It is walking distance to publix and a convenience store. The mall is a short drive ( with ok food court and bouncy houses on certain weekends).

Pros: Close to Legoland and had a shuttle to and from the park Close to restaurants and shopping Nice pool Cons: Urine odor in the bathroom. Called the front desk and they sent someone up to spray some air freshener. They sprayed it by the air conditioner. This did not help. I had to wipe down the bathroom with Clorox... More

Family and I stayed here the night before we went to Legoland and we're glad we did. Check-in was fast and friendly, along with a complimentary cookie (or 2). This breakfast was the best I've seen at a hotel! Soft buttery biscuits and gravy, a pancake maker and the cinnamon buns were out of this world! I highly recommend this... More

A small hotel , clean rooms with helpful staff. The pool is not really what one would like to call a pool and the business centre is a small corner where the printer does not work..

This hotel is clean, fresh, and has really comfortable beds. It is located within walking distance to Publix, Dunkin Donuts and Dairy Queen - what could be better? Not to mention you can drive out and fill up at the gas station before hitting the road again. Couldn't have picked a better place to stay.

We stayed 2 weekend nights and found the accommodations to be about average to above average for this type hotel chain. The staff were extremely friendly and the hotel was clean. This location receives a lot of use and some wear was apparent in the hallways and the rooms, but overall, the room was clean and comfortable.
