“Good fitness center, breakfast, rooms, staff”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

This hotel is a bit beyond my budget. But when my team stayed here during a training camp I found it to be a very clean and comfortable home base. The fitness center was always empty, and they have 2 treadmills, a bike and an elliptical, all in good working order--no mats or weights though. The breakfast was fine (I appreciated the nice selection of yogurt), and decent coffee. The rooms were not large, but tastefully decorated and comfortable beds. The array of DVDs you can borrow in the lobby is a nice touch. The staff I dealt with was very helpful and friendly. Publix supermarket is right next door, 24-hr Walgreens across the street. I would stay here again, but the price is a bit high.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We enjoyed having your team, and hope to have you back again. Our rates do vary throughout the year - maybe you can catch a break with one of our online specials or a visit during a slower period when rates decline. I appreciate your comments and will share them with the staff. Thank you again!

My family, with two young boys (3, 5) stayed in a king suite room - very comfortable and clean. Noise was minimal, despite lots of other families in residence. Parking was easy and a quick ten minute drive to Legoland. Reception greeting was friendly and we enjoyed the hot / cold breakfast selection in the mornings.

Of note: internet was available, but insufficient download rate for streaming movies; emails and browsing were fine. The bathroom ran out of toilet paper on the morning we checked out. I'm sure this would've been remedied quickly if I asked, but surprised housekeeping missed two almost empty rolls the previous day. We were debating between this hotel and the Hampton Inn; based on our experience, we will be back the next time we visit Legoland.

Great place to stay if visiting LEGOLAND. New, clean, most comfortable beds, excellent free breakfast, very nice front desk, near restaurants. Don't look any further if going to LEGOLAND. Just go here.

Traveled for business and had never stayed before. Cannot say enough how clean and well kept everything was. The rooms were immaculate and as noted in a previous review, the beds were super comfy. Enjoyed the stay very much and will be staying again. Breakfast was good as well. Highly recommend.

We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at Lake Wales. It was a pleasure to stay there and found the property to be a very nice and super clean facility. Our room was perfect, the bed very comfortable and you can even choose what kind of pillow you like, soft or firm. The room was very spacious and very clean. The welcome we had by the staff at the desk was great and the clean smell of the lobby really made a great impression on us. Breakfast was good and overall, our experience with this hotel was excellent. The location is perfect when visiting the BOK tower and gardens as well as LEGOLAND. We will definitely will stay at this Hotel when visiting the area again and would recommend it to our friends and family.

Room Tip: Our room was a corner room on the third floor. It was very quiet and private.

We stayed here at the Holiday Inn Express when our son was getting married at Bok Tower Gardens and were very pleased. Clean, clean, clean the hotel was. Every staff member we met said hello or helped with any question we had.
