“Very convenient for Legoland vistors”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

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.

Great room. Very spacious, and the bed..... SOOOOO comfortable. Also like the mini fridge and microwave in the room. Great options for travelers to store beverages and leftovers and be able to heat them up again. Whenever we travel and need a hotel, I always look for the nearest Holiday Inn Express due to my experience here. Thumbs up!

Hi Mya,
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. As a temporary "home away from home" it is sometimes a challenge to appeal to everyones preferences in a mattress, and I am very happy that you found the room to be spacious and comfortable. I get many requests for the brand name of the mattresses we have. The comments that our guests share with us are my main focus and inspiration to consistently improve our hotel's product and services. Thank you again and I hope you will choose us the next time you visit Lake Wales.

Went out of our way to go to Bok Tower en-route to West Palm area. There's not much to choose from in the area so booked room based on other reviews. It was fine for the one night. Hotel is fairly new. Breakfast was fine. Hotel is back in off the road so we totally missed it at first. If you see Kohl's, it's just to the left.

Clean, quiet rooms and comfortable beds. Breakfast was hot and tasty. A bit pricey, but there are not many options in this area.

Room Tip: High floor.

We got a "deal" using Priority Club points and stayed for 4 nights on our way back from the Ft Myers area headed back to the midwest. We wanted to see this central FL area along with a day at WDW/Epcot and a visit with an old HS/college friend in Winter Haven. As a bonus we discovered the Bok Tower horticultural park, a worthwhile 1/2 day visit. This hotel will appeal to those visiting the new Legoland park a few miles away as it's over 25 miles to Epcot.

This is a newer HI Express property: rooms and lobby / eating area are very clean and quiet with helpful staff. It has a pool but no hot tub so we did not use this facility. The beds are very comfortable based on our King upgrade room. Be aware our GPS did -not- find the hotel address however it's right next to a Home Depot so that's another clue, 3-5 miles N of the Lake Wales city center on Hwy 27 but set back a ways from the road. It's within walking distance to a Publix grocery store, gas station next door and a Chilis restaurant less than a mile to the south.

Room Tip: As the hotel is set back a block from Hwy 27 we did not notice any road noise, you might want to ask...

Spacious room and bathroom, big fluffy towels, nice bed linens, microwave, refrigerator, nice TV, DVD player, privacy, friendly helpful staff. Chili's and Bob Evans and Dairy Queen nearby. Not very sound-proof (I could hear doors slamming even with my earplugs in) but new and clean and convenient to our event.

The only reason I didn't give this a rating of 5 was the pool was freezing cold - so cold even my kids refused to get in! The location also isn't great - it's so close to the Home Depot that the pool looks out onto the Home Depot parking lot/tool rental area. If these two things don't matter, this is a great place. The staff was very friendly. It's very new so everything is clean and neat. The breakfast was standard for Holiday Inn Express - eggs, french toast, sausage gravy, fruit, toast, muffins. Short drive from restaurants and shopping mall. About 5 to 10 minute drive from Legoland. Again, if you don't care about the pool then it's a great place and a good deal for the money. The staff was so friendly they even called a different Holiday Inn for us to check on availability when we complained about the pool.
