i finally decided to take my family to florida to check out the parks and have a photo taken with mickey! planning it was a tough task, we had to think about where we wanted to go, what we wanted to see and most important of all, where we would like to stay.
We wanted to avoid the hustle and bustle of large cities and stay in a quiet but convenient local town somewhere between Orlando and Tampa. We found a great town called Winter Haven, also known as chain of lakes city.
After much research we chose to stay at a local, small hotel called Ranch House Inn and Suites. It was a toss up between a large well known hotel and a smaller more local hotel. We decided the latter, the main reason being that we wanted to stay somewhere that feels like home, somewhere where my wife can cook as normal and where my kids have ample area to run around in. Most of the larger hotels don't offer this kind of stay.
A bonus was the pool, free high speed wireless internet access, and free hot IHOP breakfast every morning. Not apples and oranges offered in continental breakfasts at the other franchise hotels. All this was for a reasonable price. The motel is an excellent alternative to name branded ones where you pay through the nose for a small box room!
The staff were excellent and always ready to help. The young man at the counter explained very clearly the terms of our stay and was very considerate to our needs.
I would highly recommend anyone to stay at the Ranch House and Suites!
