“Dated but Clean”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

The hotel was clean, but very old and so was quite loud being next to the Interstate. The "breakfast" was a joke and I was quite glad that there was an IHOP resturant next door.

The staff were very friendly and the room was comfortable. For the price it was about what I expected, but it's a place that really needs some updates. For example, our bathroom door couldn't close at all. The other room we got for my father-in-law, his entrance door had to be forcibly closed since it didn't quite fit the frame.

Thank you for your comments. Customer feedback is very important to the way we manage our property. It is of utmost importance that each guest enjoys his or her stay. We have looked into the door situation and someone is coming to fix them next week. Furthermore, since becoming a Travelodge (1 year ago), we have undergone many renovations. We recently finished updating our first building, and we are beginning on the second building soon. Thanks again for taking the time to review our hotel.

I booked this hotel at the last minute on the AAA.com site for a triathlon I was doing and got a very inexpensive rate hoping it would be decent. I accidentally booked a smoking room and although I could not change the room it did not smell like smoke at all. The room was very clean, as was the bathroom, the bed was comfortable and it was nice to have a balcony to sit on. The only issue was the sound of cars on the I4 but it didn't bother me, even when sleeping, but in case this is a concern, take this into consideration when booking. We did not use the pool but it looked nice and I did not personally eat the breakfast, my boyfriend said it was more than adequate.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away farthest from I4 if you may have a concern with noise

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. we open all the doors and patio doors on a daily basis which pretty much takes care of the smoke smell. However we have now added more non smoking rooms keeping only 8 smoking rooms out of 64.
Thank you for your comments

My friend and I booked this room to stay at after the annual Wingin' It Festival in nearby Winter Haven. Apparently it was a busy weekend and most of the hotels nearby were sold out, so we "settled" for this one. I called to double check the check-in time since it was so early and was pleased to hear that it was correct online. We arrived before noon and were able to get directly into our room. The lady at the front desk was very helpful and pleasant, helping us with some general questions we had. When we walked in the room was very spacious and much larger than we had expected. The rooms had concrete walls which made it very quite and cooler. Every room has a balcony and large sliding glass doors which I thought was a nice touch rather than just a window. I cannot tell you how impressed I was with how clean the rooms were! It looks from the outside like an older building so you don’t expect much, just wait until you get inside! Sadly we were not able to take advantage of the breakfast, but the set up looked nice and larger than other hotels I’ve seen.
