We stayed here about a week ago for 4 nights; the resort is a little off the beaten path (20 minutes from Lake Wales), but for what we wanted it was great!
It appeared almost everything had been recently remodeled, and rooms were refreshed with new paint, floors, light fixtures, tv and bed. Part of the reason we chose the place is that they had a small kitchen area with a fridge, stove, oven and coffee maker...it sure is nice to have coffee in your room each morning with a little breakfast. We stayed from Friday - Tuesday and visited the petting zoo (free), watched the rodeo on Saturday ($15 a person) and walked the grounds which were nicely kept. The staff was really friendly and helpful when we had any requests or questions.
While it's not a four or five star resort, a few of the things in the room we're not updated (bathrooms and kitchen), you're also not paying $300 a night for two people and $25 per person for a "resort fee."
When we're down in Lake Wales visiting family again I know where we're staying.
