Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FCI JEFF An excellent experience!
We actually stayed from July 3, 2014 through July 6, 2014. The room was clean, the balcony was lovely, and the staff was very helpful, friendly and attentive. In particular, the desk staff was extremely helpful with everything we needed. IN the lounge area where breakfast was served, Ms. Charlene W. was an absolute pleasure. My significant other who traveled with me has a gluten allergy and Ms. Charlene went out of her way to help us find safe and appropriate food in the fabulous breakfast buffet! Not only was she helpful but she was also very kind and didn't mind answering our questions about the area and where we were going. Starting off every day of our short vacation under her care guaranteed that we walked out the door with a smile! Thank you very much for another wonderful HI experience! We'll be back!

Housekeeping staff were excellent. I requested that my room be cleaned early in the morning since I was working nights. They were prompt every morning and my room was very clean.
Other staff were helpful and pleasant.
Yes, I would stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tmail79 comfortable stay
We stayed here 8/6 to 8/8/14 to go to Lego land. The hotel is in a great location with plenty of restaurants around it and a big mall about 3 miles up the road on the I-4 heading west. The staff was great and very friendly. The hotel and room was very clean and we felt comfortable. But nothing is perfect so here are two minor correctable things the hotel can work on. The front entrance to each side is the smoking area for smokers. This is a problem because the hotel is non smoking and who wants to arrive at the hotel and smell smoke like we did as we are unloading luggage. Non smokers like myself do not appreciate it. Plus the smokers threw there cigarette butts all over the ground and it looks dirty. Plus you have people hanging out in front of the hotel smoking and drinking beer (Contractors who were staying there) just does not look good. If they moved that area to the back of the hotel it would resolve the problem and make it look better. The second is the lack of attention to the pool area. It needs to be power washed daily and cleaned. There were so many dead bugs on the surface water of the pool it was blaahhh. Clean the pool a few times a day and it could be resolved this is Florida. I live in Florida and my pool can get that way but with a little attention you can keep it clean. Overall good experience and would stay here again but I hope they resolve those 2 issues immediately. I would recommend the hotel to others.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by msteen Great Stay... Just fix the hard boiled eggs!
Overall great hotel. Stayed there plenty of times. Front desk staff is ALWAYS super courteous and professional. Rooms are always clean and fresh linens.
One issue here and seems to be an ongoing issue with other Holiday Inn's are their Hard Boiled Eggs they put out for breakfast. This is part of my preferred breakfast when I travel and lately they are putting out spoiled/shriveled up hard boiled eggs. When I asked the nice lady tending to the breakfast area for some fresh eggs she brought out a bulk bag of the eggs which were all in the same condition. Ignoring the fact that they looked spoiled, I bit into one anyway and was completely disgusted.... throwing them all in the trash.
I hope that the management team communicates this issue with the amenity staff and gets it corrected.

Top quality is the only way to describe this place. Excellent place to stay. Only about an hour from the theme parks in Orlando and much less expensive. Next time we are in the area we WILL stay here again.

This particular location was fairly new. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was sufficient for us to start the day. We will definitely stay there again if we visit Lakeland.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie73 Home for Large Groups
We have been fairly regular guests over a period of time. In recent months we have seen the hotel serve as headquarters for large groups. These are generally kids' sports organizations. During our last stay it was a family reunion. We understand the hotel's desire to accommodate the large groups. People in the groups know one another and enjoy visiting in the public areas as well as the hallways until very late at night. Since the rooms seem to be very poorly insulated for sound, ordinary visitors cannot sleep or relax. The staff here does a fine job and the facility is clean and neat. However, anyone looking for a good night's sleep should go elsewhere.

I am on the road most of every work week. When I arrive at my hotel, it is always a pleasure to see the friendly faces at the front desk. Everyone always makes a point to be helpful and quick to get me check in.
My room is always ready and very comfortable. I enjoy staying at this location in Lakeland. Thank you!!

The room was great and everything was clean. The best part was the staff. They worked with us when we had to leave early due to a death in the family to get all the charges taken care of. Would highly recommend this hotel.

We loved it! The front desk person, Jeb, was fantastic bc he was so willing to help and ensure our stay was 110%. The room was comfortable and had good pillows. The hotel had good breakfast choices, good size pool, and the staff is invaluable and quite informative.

I have visited about a dozen different HI Express between Tampa and Atlanta, and the Lakeland location is definitely in my top 3. In the last three months I've stayed 4 times and all have been EXCELLENT, the hotel is very well kept and in a perfect location. Sandy at the front desk is a true professional and it shows.

Great location, Clean, and friendly staff. I had my luggage shipped to this location because I had to travel to two cities in one day. Called the hotel and they had no problem holding the package for me. When I got there late at night, all I had to do was ask for my stuff, and there it was. I will be coming back! Everyone I dealt with was great. Thank you very much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MED45 Returned for second time
We were here for five days about two weeks ago and just one night this time on our way through. One thing I will mention is that there is no freezer in the refrigerator...most facilities have both. Also, the microwave is low and have to get on the floor to work it. If I am thinking of the wrong place please let me know as we have been to many IHG properties in the last month. Let me say a word about Charlene who does the breakfasts and many other things that I hope she gets credit for. If she ever is not working for you, you will really miss her. Oh, one last thing, when you close the drapes they do not close in the middle but on the right hand side and they will not go all the way to the end of the window which means light comes in at night. We have learned to tape the drape to the wall. Not sure how you can fix this. We loved the room we were able to stay in other than these little things and will return the next time we are in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MED45 Monique is a great General Manager
We ended up staying five nights at this facility on a business trip that lasted longer than expected. First of all our room was the best, Room 413, it had a separate bedroom with a DOOR...something not many HI Expresses have. Really worked out great for us. There are restaurants nearby that you can walk to if you don't want to drive: Applebys, Five Guys, Wendys, Cracker Barrell. Almost everyone on staff was excellent...especially Monique who was especially friendly and always helpful. The lady who did the breakfasts was really efficient and worked very hard. I think she was there almost everyday we were there. Wish IHG would give 500 points for each night a person stays.....really miss out on points if one stays longer than 1 night. Right now there are no programs going for us to earn extra points that I am aware of/Big Win ended at the end of April. One big no no was the cost of laundry....come on $3.50 to wash and $3.50 to dry (AND EVEN THEN THE CLOTHES WERE NOT DRY). Only one other place have I paid this much. Staybridge is free so that is one reason to choose them when they are available, plus they have dinners Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Most HI Expresses charge $1.50 - $2.00....and they only had one washer and one dryer. Like that many of the HI Expresses have Greek Yogurt and the Quaker hot cereal containers you just had hot water to. Don't think this one had the Greek Yogurt but I may be remembering wrong.
