This hotel was new, very clean. Great customer service. The rooms have high ceilings which feels more spacious. The breakfast was lack luster, but there are restaurants nearby. Would definitely stay there again. However, $25 a night for pets is pricey.

Great newer Hotel and above average for a Holiday Inn Express. Very clean rooms and premises, friendly staff and of course the trade mark pancake maker for a hot breakfast. Just off Hwy 27, convenient to Winter Haven, Spook Hill in Lake Wales and dining is plentiful within 5 mile radius.

We are a family of 4 and stayed for 3 days 2 nights. They shuttle to Legoland. It's in convenient shopping center with a Publix. The staff was friendly. Basic breakfast included. Room was clean and beds were ok. The pool is way too small though. Overall it was a good stay.

Stayed here for a trip to legoland. Two months ago I stayed at the legoland resort but at $600/night, it's a once in a lifetime sort of resort lol I read all the reviews and decided to stay here because at $149/night it had the most stars for the price.

The beds here really need to be replaced and the front desk team said that would start in the next month. I would not recommend staying here until the beds have been replaced if you don’t want to fall into a hammock! We stayed two separate times. The first time the AC did not adequately cool the room. The second... More

We prefer to stay here for our lego land trips. Free and great breakfast buffet. Free coffee 24/7. It is walking distance to publix and a convenience store. The mall is a short drive ( with ok food court and bouncy houses on certain weekends).
