Stains all over the mattress boxsprings. Rust around bathroom door frame and light fixtures. Hair on bathroom floor. Stains on carpet and curtains. Sign stated that the hotel was undergoing renovations, however, it appeared that only hallways were being renovated. Peeling wallpaper, carpet stains in hallways. The bottom of the pool was crumbling apart. Stains on pool chairs. This hotel,...

njdjax, I am so sorry to see and hear about your experience. Sounds like you may have been on the 6th floor which is where a large part of complete renovation is taking place. There was a sign saying please excuse the mess but we understand your thoughts. During the summer, the pool stays so packed. There is a plan...

I am pretty new to this but I thought why not promote when I receive great service? That is what me and my family got here this past weekend. I was in town for a huge family reunion and honestly I was a little nervous since reading some of the reviews. I was very happy. We had 3 rooms booked...

Our room was on the fifth floor, right over the live band that played off to the lobby. You were able to hear the beat of the music without a problem. Our beds had 2 different white cotton spreads, mine of which needed laundering. The blankets on on queen size beds had to be some 20-30 years old (like OD...

They only make us better and allow us to improve in some areas :-) I would like to speak with you more regarding your stay and possibly get more details.

Reviewed 3 June 2016

While the staff was friendly and efficient, the hotel is dated and doesn't feel very clean or necessarily safe. I actually went to KMart down the street and bought sheets to use instead of the ones that were in the room. We got back to the hotel around 10 after KMart and dinner and the bar patio area, which is...

The hospitality was noteworthy; From the front desk, the housekeeping staff and the banquet manager. Even the general manager took the time to meet with us. I was the person in charge for an event we held at this location. They have plenty of meeting space. I recommend if you're going to have an event that you do a careful...

Older hotel. Needs work. Staff was good. Breakfast needs to be upgraded. Able to walk to some good restaurants. Bedroom was adequate for sleeping and fairly clean but they need to be upgraded. Liked the hot tub area.

We traveled to Lakeland for our nephew's wedding and stayed overnight at this hotel. While it is an older hotel, the room was clean & comfortable and the location was great! We were within walking distance of several good restaurants. The staff was friendly & helpful. The hotel did have a continental breakfast but it was not the best.

Nick B, Director of Sales at Imperial Swan Lakeland, responded to this review

Gtown1976, Thank you ever so kindly for the review! We are glad you enjoyed your time here and hope the wedding was beautiful. We are in the process of finalizing the restaurant so maybe next time, instead of the continental breakfast, you could stop in to order a hot breakfast or room service! We are really looking forward to it!...

My Friend and I were taking a spur of the moment trip to Lakeland for the Florida Jets event. We called from the road and were able to book a pair of rooms from Nick at a very reasonable rate for two nights. Check in went smoothly and it was apparent that this hotel was a survivor. The hotel showed...

Room was not very clean; carpet was dirty and we found an old pair of shoes at the foot of the bed. In addition: phone didn't work; torn blankets; moldy tub; toilet flapper leaked so it refilled every few minutes all night long. Two of five days there, we received no maid service until we repeatedly complained to the front...

Hello Steve, I remember dealing with almost all of the softball teams and am very sad to hear about this. I believe I was the one when you checked out you jokingly let me know about the shoes. That is not acceptable and will be addressed I assure you. Who did you speak to at desk about the maid service...

We stayed here because it was a host hotel for my husband's Senior Softball Tournament. Family members also joined us.
