A prior reviewer said "It is not new or fancy." However, it was remodeled within the last year and it really is clean and tidy. The beds are like new and very comfortable - I'm used to a high-end thermal foam mattress at home and I find that the mattresses in the Travelodge give me equally restful sleep!

I recommend it. It is nearby several great restaurants, plus there is an IHOP adjoining the motel.

And, not lastly at all, the service is great! When the manager noticed I was wearing a heart monitor she spontaneously changed my reserved room from a 2nd floor room to ground floor... a very thoughful accommodation!

We needed an economical hotel in Lakeland and if that is what you need, I recommend this Travelodge. It is not new or fancy, but the beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. The staff was friendly and there is extra space in the rooms for sitting and relaxing. Plus, flat screen TV's too. If you're on a budget, you won't beat this place.

I am a parent of a travel fastpitch softball player, and we stay in alot of hotels because of all of the tournaments throughout the state. This hotel would be at the very top of my list of preffered hotels, especially when it comes to value. We got an awesome rate for our whole team, and was completely surprised when we saw the quality of the facility.Our girls had a great time at the pool and the management was very nice and facilitating. The rooms are plenty large and very clean. All of our parents had nothing but great things to say about this hotel, and we will definitely stay again when we are in the area.

We were there because my husband was judging the state science fair. I was not involved and chose the hotel because it appeared to have a nice pool area where I could relax while my husband was away. This turned out to be great. The pool area was clean, large and beautifully landscaped. The front desk personnel were very nice. The workout room was small, but air conditioned. Breakfast was pitiful. Fortunately we always bring hard-boiled eggs to supplement. There is an I-Hop next door which was nice the second morning when my husband didn't have to hurry. The room was fine - large enough and clean enough. However, we were the first room near the outside door to the parking lot and it was terribly noisy. We could hear everyone who went in or out. A good night's sleep is really important to us and we did not get it. There are restaurants just across the road, so the hotel is conveniently located. Unfortunately, next year we will probably try to find somewhere else to stay due to the noise factor.

Room Tip: Don't get by the door.

Thank you for your comments. We wish you had informed us of the noise during your stay we would have gladly changed the room to your liking. We will try and ensure that the noise is kept to the minimum and we will monitor the entry doors more closley

Located right at the I-4 interchange, this is a very convenient location, with an IHOP in the property. This is an older hotel (originally a Howard Johnson's) with interior corridors and patios/balconies on each room. Desk staff was very pleasant and courteous. Per my request, I was given a second-floor non-smoking room. It faced the interstate but noise was not a problem.

The room it appeared to be recently painted with a nice choice of colors. The bed was a bit old but comfortable. Furnishings showed signs of slight malicious damage and were somewhat beat up in places. But otherwise everything was clean and in good working order. The large pool and patio were very inviting and well-kept, surrounded by a nicely landscaped courtyard. This is a nice change from the seemingly afterthought pool/patio set-ups tacked on to the sides of the modern 4-story shoebox hotels that are built today.

A continental breakfast is offered but I did not take advantage of it. This is a nice place for the low price I paid.
