This is a clean, comfortable and modern-looking hotel on the main commercial drag with plenty of chain and other restaurants, stores, etc. nearby or within easy driving distance. My room had a comfortable king bed with small fridge, coffee maker, ironing board and iron, and Samsung flat screen TV. Big plus: a very comfortable chaise sofa seat -- a most...

I visited this property during a weekend fishing trip. The rooms were clean and spacious, lobby was beautifully designed. The front desk ladies upon check in were very accommodating and proficient. We will definitely return!

First the pluses. 1 The room was clean and spacious. 2 The front desk people were helpful. Now, my problem with this hotel was the noise. Every time somebody moved in the hall, I could hear it and I swear I heard the toilet flush in the next room. Bring earplugs or a sound machine...I won't be back.

New hotel on the southside of town. Convenient to restaurants & shopping. Large rooms that are quiet & clean. Continental breakfast & newspaper. Small gym. Plenty of parking. Reasonable rates. The only downside is had was the bed was a bit high & if you are short it is a bit hard to get into.

This is a nearly new Holiday Inn Express. I believe it opened in September or October 2016 so everything is fresh and clean. The staff is friendly and the facilities are all good. The location is good, particularly if you're looking for a hotel on the south side of Lakeland, or near Florida Southern College. However the design of the...

Quick check in, modern, new and clean facility. Great amenities I.e., fridge in room, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, iron and board. Plenty of electrical outlets in room. Breakfast buffet was acceptable with lots of choices. Site pictures do not do the lobby justice. Very modern.

This is a new hotel and is very beautiful. The staff is tremendous. Great breakfast as usual. Good beds and pillow. The TV is huge! Loved it. Also the TV in the breakfast room is a curved giant screen. About 80"! Also the blackout curtains in the room really do block out the light. There are a couple of things...

We stayed at this location during the Christmas holidays. The staff was very nice and helpful. This location is new, so the décor was very pleasant. The hotel is set back from the road so no road noise at night. Standard buffet offering for breakfast which was ok. If they improve the breakfast offering I would give this a 5...

Great newer facility. Fast check in. Tall ceilings. Great beds. Huge rooms. Well decorated, modern decor. Luggage bench big enough for two bags. Charging outlets all over the place. 3 X 5 ft shower! Free Wi-Fi. Good lighting. Reasonably priced. Free breakfast. Everything worked and was clean. This place will make up for all those other places you have stayed...
