My family stayed at the Laketown Wharf Resort for the annual Ironman Florida race. The Laketown Wharf far exceeded my expectations. The rooms were clean, spacious, and well appointed, we had a beautiful water view, and were conveniently located near all of the race activities as well as the beach (across the street) and shopping venues we needed (e.g., Wal-Mart). For the price, I don't know why anyone would stay anywhere else for Ironman Florida. The one downside is the size. This place is gigantic, on a scale I haven't seen outside of Las Vegas. When I forgot to bring towels to the pool (they ask that you not bring the room towels to the pool but don't actually provide towels at the pool - go figure), it took me over 15 minutes to go back to the room, get the towels and make it back to the pool. When we needed a new code for the door to our room, I had to make a 15 minute trek to the front desk to get the code. Most of the delay is caused by the elevators (there aren't enough of them and they go slowly) and the fact that the hotel was overwhelmed with Ironman athletes (they all need to go to the same places at the same times). Overall, it was a great place to stay and we had a wonderful time.
