Reviewed July 9, 2013

This hotel appears to be relatively new and is about 4 miles from the front entrance to Lego Land, it has several great restaurants within walking distance (Outback, Red Lobster) and they also have a guest laundry on the main floor which is great for drying towels after a day at the Lego Land Water Park. Everyone at the front desk was super friendly and helpful and they had a small Lego pack for each of the kids. Highly recommend if you are planning a trip to Lego Land which is about 40 minutes from Orlando.

My son got a small lego kit as a souvenir. Lots of restaurants were within walking distance: red lobster, outback, chick-fil-a, panera, an italian restaurant, and also starbucks. I should have listened to other reviews about the breakfast buffet at the hotel being terrible. Their eggs (didn't taste real), sausage (salty), french toast (not fresh), were not worth $8. I fed my 21month son a box of cereal which was also included in the buffet. They also had donuts and fruits.

Wal-mart was also located near by the hotel. We were able to buy extra diapers for our son. The hotel has a shuttle bus to legoland in the morning and the evening.
We used the 8am shuttle for breakfast at Perkins located across from Legoland. It was located inside of the plaza includes Publix supermarket, so we got some bottles of water there.

Pros: The room was clean and new, and I was happy that towels were new and fluffy next day too. Front desk (Maria) was very nice.
Cons: Hotel shampoo was smaller than my palm, so I had to call for extra shampoo for three of us. When we need to talk with a person in the front desk at night (not Maria), he was not there most of the time.

Room Tip: We were able to see the fireworks from Legoland from our hotel room 5F. It was nice and quiet.

Typical Holiday Inn. Nice and clean, in a good area. Shower worked great. Fridge, coffee maker, ironing board/iron, but no microwave. Be aware - the hotel's restaurant is closed on Sunday. But, Outback is literally right outside the door along with a few other big ones within a minute by foot. Share's the same parking lot with the Hampton Inn. Close to Legoland. You can also get a nice discount if you're military, or prior military like me. Ask for it when you book, and bring your DD214 with you.

Spent the night listening to a band (old rock - great band) at a dive on the lake called Old Man Franks. The inside is like a biker bar right out of a movie. But there's a big dock out back with a giant lake for a gorgeous view - wow! All the patrons and the staff were really friendly. It's a local gem. Lots of tattoos, I felt a bit out of place for about five minutes (I'm a teacher), but stayed the whole night. Highly recommended. Reasonable prices and safe for you and your spouse.

This hotel was very clean, well managed, and comfortable. The only part I didn't like was you had to pay for a continental breakfast. We too a group of kids and parent to the usbcy state tourney. It was a good time. The elevator even talked to you and let you know if you were going up or down and what floor you were on.

I was skeptical of what kid of stay we would get in winter haven as it is a small town so we figured the options would be limited. I was correct in that thinking but this holiday inn was all we needed. Newer hotel so the grounds and rooms and check in area are newer and well kept. Didn't eat in the hotel but will tell you this is a restraunt not just a simple little breakfast area. They have a bar a real menu and the whole bit. Also the location is great right outside of your door is an outback so if you want to go get a decent dinner or a drink you can walk there. The rates are reasonable we went over memorial day weekend so they where higher than usual. The staff was very friendly and everything was well maintained. I will stay in this hotel everytime we go to legoland.

We stayed here after a day at LEGOLAND. Close to the park, beautiful hotel, comfy beds, nice big bathroom. Nice and quiet. We especially like the new key card system, where you just wave the card in front of the door to your room, the pool door, the gym, etc. Staff was so friendly!! The restaurant down stairs is gorgeous, clean and good value for the menu. Each booth has it's own TV that you can change your own channels and watch while you eat. We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: any room above the second floor, and you get a beautiful view of the rolling hills and glades of Cen...

Stayed three nights, clean room, comfy bed, staff was super nice and helpful. Food from restaurant isn't bad, just nothing special. The kids eat free certificates were nice though. Good stay for visiting Lego Land. I'd stay again.
