We just stayed there one night on our way home from Naples, FL so we didn't do much but sleep there. One thing that we do remember is that the room was quite large and very clean. Bathroom was very nice and really handy...a sink in the bathroom and also another sink and mirror outside of the bathroom. A big plus for this hotel is the fact that it is basically connected to an IHOP restaurant. The wi-fi worked great and that is very important to us. All in all, a very pleasant and clean hotel at a very reasonable price.

As usual, a clean and comfortable room at a reasonable price, and also as usual, excellent customer service! The management, front desk staff, and housekeepers are all friendly and helpful. Our room was a ground floor, non-smoking double, just as we had requested.

The location is perfect for our needs, close to I-4 and plenty of fine [and fun] eateries nearby. It's not a high-rise over-done touristy place and doesn't pretend to be, Travelodge is an affordable and pleasant place to rest after a busy day and the in-room wi-fi and TV viewing options are on a par with the "vacation destinations" 45 minutes to the east - at a fraction of the cost!

We really enjoyed our stay Melinda and Donna were terrific at their jobs always smiling and full of local info. The room was so clean and smelled so fresh. We especially loved the balcony in the morning with our coffee. Thank You we will be back!

After reading the reviews on this site, we chose this hotel for our family vacation and reserved a 5 night stay, almost 2 months in advance. We then called 3 times over the course of the next week or so, attempting to reserve a specific type of room (ground floor as we will have a stroller, away from the highway for quiet). We were told each time that they could not guarantee us any particular room location, as they had to make rooms available for whoever showed up (without a reservation?) and couldn't "kick someone out of their room" when we arrived. Twice I was told it would be difficult to place us in our room of choice "because we're really busy that week," but then the last time I called was told that "it's not busy at that time" so I shouldn't worry about getting the room I wanted. Frustrated, I reconsidered, found another hotel and made a reservation there. I then called Travelodge Lakeland to cancel and was told that I could not cancel with them but had to do so through whichever online booking service I had used (which was the Travelodge website). So I went back to the Travelodge website and cancelled the reservation.
I hope their in-person customer service is better than what is represented through our telephone experience. Thankfully, we will not have to find out.

Thank you for taking the time to review Travelodge Lakeland. Our Staff strives to accomodate each and every guest and their requests. Almost all our reviews give 5 stars for customer service. After speaking with you last evening I checked the reservation and you were in a room downstairs facing the pool away from the Highway with a Crib. We are sorry you decided to cancel your reservation without giving us a try. We hope you will give us another chance to show you our great Customer Service and wonderful accomodations.

Group recently traveled to Florida for death in family. Building overall a little worn. Five rooms in all; 3 had bugs of some sort at night in bathroom, small black, not like a cockroach I've ever seen, but others said they were. Four had unusually low toilets, using it was an adventure getting up and down. Rooms facing highway very loud.
Condom, apparently used, greeted us one morning outside our sliding doors. Hall carpets worn, shower head dirty, all 5 needed keys reset at least once, usually at a most inconvenient time. Continental breakfast was adequate, but nowhere near the level of Comfort or Hampton Inns. Plus side was free wifi, fridge and micro, the only reason for 2 stars instead of one. Wasn't my choice to try a Travelodge, and it will be the last time based on this experience.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of Travelodge Lakeland. During the daytime we open the doors to freshen up the rooms and air them out. When it rains little bugs called knats sometimes will get in. They are very harmless bugs. We have had the Travelodge for 2 years now and we have been renovated and upgraded all our rooms With new Beds, Furniture, Flat Screen T.V.'S, Microwave and Refridgerators. The Carpet is coming soon we wanted to focus on the rooms first so that our Customers would be comfortable and have nice ammenities in the rooms. Our breakfast is Wyndham standards and with it being simple ( Cereal, Bagels, Fruit, Oatmeal, Muffins Juice & Coffee) it allows us to keep our rates low. As soon as I recieved you review I looked into your issues and corrected all that I could I hope you will give us another try if you are in the area again. Thank You.
