“Nice clean hotel-right near Legoland!”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

Stayed here just one night before our visit to Legoland. The room was clean and elegant with premium linens and a variety of pillow choices (labeled firm, soft, etc.). There was a fridge, microwave and flat screen TV and the bathroom was clean and spacious. No noise problems to speak of but we did check in late (around 11:45pm). The desk person was pleasant and the housekeeping staff (next morning) were cheerful and helpful. The breakfast was standard with many choices; cereal, pastries, yogurt, pancake station, eggs, biscuits, toast, muffins and bananas. A few other fruit selections would have been nice. We did not stay long enough to use the pool, but they did have one. Overall a really excellent, clean place to stay!

This is an above average Holiday Inn Express. It is quite new and is in very good shape as of March, 2012. The value was good, the room very clean, the staff responsive, and the breakfast was well above average for this type of hotel. The only negative is that there aren't many restaurant choices in the immediate area. That really shouldn't reflect on the hotel though as it is a very good property that exceeds the standard in all areas.

In order to get an early start at Legoland, we stayed here. It was a great idea. The beds were comfortable, the pillows were just right, and the breakfast was just perfect. It was clean, as expected from Holiday Inn brands. It was a 5 minute drive from the hotel to the park. It was a much better plan than staying in Orlando then driving the 45 minutes. I definitely recommend the stay.

Was in town for a wedding and stayed here based on other reviews I read. I was not disappointed HIE has got it right at this location, clean rooms, friendly staff, comfy beds, only thing the room was a little musty smelling. We brought a cool air humidifier for our 5 month old son and that seem to fix that issue. Overall great stay!!!!!

We arrived rather late on Friday and I think they gave us the last room they had because it was just by the lobby and the dinning room. Well it was not bad at all. The room had what you would expect (well all but a safe box.) The mattresses confy enough pillows etc. The breakfast was the typical coffee toast, scrambles eggs type but clean abundant and organized for a hotel at full occupancy. There is Chili's less than half a mile south and a Bob Evans a little further. Some 10 min to Legoland.

Room Tip: If you are assigned a first floor room, prefer towards the center because at the ends are the altern...

Thank you for taking the time to share the details of your stay with us. March is a very busy time for Lake Wales and our hotel, and I am happy that you were pleased with your room on the first floor. Our hotel has an advantage in that the walls and ceilings are concrete, which is a great sound barrier. We are very excited to be so close to Legoland and hope that you enjoyed your trip. Thank you again for your review, and I thank you for choosing us for your trip.
