If I could get past the bad smell first in the hallway & then in the room it would have been much better. Overall everything was ok. Nothing great, but it met our need for a night in Lakeland. It is your average hotel room. Everything appeared clean although older so some issues. The pool looked alright but we didn't use it. There were a couple of tables with chairs to relax at by the pool. The breakfast was simple but ok from what we noticed. We got there close to 9am & I didn't realize that's when it ended & they took down on time & fast. I made a few waffles for the kids & toast for myself. It was all fine and as they put it away they did ask what we needed. I noticed they had yogurt, cereal, milk, OJ, coffee, waffles and bread. There may have been more but I didn't see everything. The air conditioning in the room worked very well and our room was cold upon entering. We had a nice size flat screen tv in the room with 2 double beds and a small table with easy additional outlets attached that we liked and used to charge our electronics. I wouldn't say it was in the best area around Lakeland but there was a Steak n Shake next door. We were pretty close to downtown Lakeland as well as I-4. Checking in and out was quick and easy. The smell in the room was really my biggest problem but overall it we had an ok stay for a night.
