The Imperial Swan was very accommodating to our family during our recent stay during Hurricane Matthew. We really appreciated that you allowed us to bring our pets during this difficult time and were so welcoming to all of our team.

We had to evacuate due to Hurricane Mathew. The hotel staff was amazing!!! They truly seemed to care about our well-being. It was affordable, a good location, and had basic amenities. It's nothing fancy, but it's a place to lay your head. There is a pool and a hotel bar. They have a free basic breakfast. It did the trick... More

This is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in!!! The carpets in the halls were damp, the beds and chairs were soaked, and the fifth floor reeked of weed! We had to ask for a humidifier so the beds would dry out. The place seemed like they were more interested in their bar, than in the hotel... More

I have stayed here for the last 3 years when I visit Lakeland for a hobby event. I have seen improvements in the 3 years - the hotel is basic and functional, however, it is good value compared to others in the area.
