Nicely appointed hotel View of a small lake out of our room window was just lovely The breakfast/bistro cafe need better hours, specifically in the mornings

Bistro cafe should remain open each morning until 11am for those of us who enjoy a late breakfast or brunch Enjoyed the gym Wish the outdoor pool was heated or there had been an indoor pool, as temps were in the 30s and 40s the week we were here Hotel staff was friendly and accommodating

Gina Cunicelli-Carlton

I’ve been here several times We always stay here when we go to Legoland and we have annual passes, so that is quite a few times Their staff has always been lovely

As a matter of fact, I’m pretty sure it’s the same people each time, so they do a good job of holding onto people The rooms are nice My only wish for the room would be that it would have a real couch or chair that could be a bit more comfortable It’s a bit of a strange wedge-shaped chair They don’t have pull-out couches or roll-away beds that can be brought to the rooms We didn’t know this the first time we went there, so we had 5 people for a 2 Queen room and my son was the odd man out He didn’t really have anywhere to sleep For 2 nights he attempted to sleep on the odd, wedge-shaped chair That was our fault for expecting the couch in the room, but we’d just come to expect it from this family of hotels Other than that, the Starbucks downstairs is also nice and convenient Of course, it’d be wonderful if they had a free continental breakfast, but they don’t The kids’ breakfast meals are fairly inexpensive though, and worth buying before heading out for the day to a park, etc Overall, I think it’s a nice, family friendly hotel that I’m sure we’ll be revisiting soon

Jen Velderman

Staff was gruff and abrupt Inquired about breakfast and a coffee and the bistro employee quickly asked if I wanted just regular coffee or a “latte or something” I just wanted coffee Asked about cream and she said she “just put it away”

I felt like a total inconvenience Room smelled reminiscent of animal urine/felt damp/musty Pretty view of the water Beds were comfortable and clean Lack of towels by the pool In general, it felt like we were bothering the staff by staying there and we had very limited interaction to begin with Location to Legoland was perfect, but lacking hospitality and living up to a typically strong Marriott brand

Homme de Towne

While it was only a three-star hotel, the accommodations were extremely luxurious I mean the room was just spoiling youBut good left a bit to be desired

The breakfast buffet was decent, nothing to write home about But for the price one would expect much better by way of food This is a consistent weakness of Hampton Inn The bed was exquisitely comfortable though, and the furniture was really nice, and everything was clean and well maintained I recommend it

Hayley Johnson

This is the only location I prefer to go to for my weekend getaways And every time I go, I’m always greeted by Kyle and another amazing employee at the front desk Such positive and kind people

They make it feel so welcoming Plus this location is always clean and clearly the cleaning staff always do such a great job, so shoutout to them Plus when I leave I always catch them in the halls and they always say good morning or how are you and it’s so sweet My all time favorite location ❤️

Patricia S C

The staff welcomed us and the check in process was very smooth The front desk staff was so nice! We got a room on the 5th floor very clean, comfortable The bath was stocked with the necessary toiletries , I was able to brew some coffee in the room

Complimentary breakfast with good options Felt safe all the time On site parking and good location near restaurants and shops

Melissa Cornelius

Just stayed at Homes2suites this weekend and had an amazing stay!! The entire place was very clean and the staff were all so nice and helpful no matter who we spoke to The location is perfect because it is close to so many stores and restaurants but yet it somehow still feels very private The breakfast is wonderful and I don’t think we would ever stay anywhere else when we visit Lakeland again

The manager is definitely doing a lot of things right with this place! I have stayed at numerous hotels the past 5 years and this was definitely one of the best stays and at the best rate Thank you!

Michelle Allen

I loved this hotel The rooms were big and super clean I loved having a full size refrigerator

Our softball team/family stayed here for a local tournament That was 13 families The patio space in front of the hotel was so nice The pool area was full one evening, so we able to be comfortable on the front patio The air conditioning worked well The staff did not seemed bothered by the multiples of young teenagers there There was more than just our team there It was nice they were understanding Great location with tons of food/shopping/entertainment options

Rachel Kimbler Music

We absolutely loved our stay here! We came here from Louisiana trying to relocate and didn’t expect to spend several weeks at a hotel! The staff was incredibly friendly! Especially Zamantha; the girl at the front desk! She was so kind to our family! The room was very clean and contemporary, and the breakfast was exceptional! Thank you Home 2 Suites for making our family feel at home 🤍🏡

Sandy “Love2Travel” S.

Was in town for a family wedding and was pleasantly surprised I was not expecting much but very happy with what we found Our large family was able to find plenty of space to socialize in the dinning and pool areas

Rooms were comfortable, clean and cooled, staff was friendly and accommodating The included breakfast had something for everyone My only complaint was the sundries really wish they had the shampoo, conditioner and body was dispensers in the showers like many other Hiltons now use Overall if you end up in Lake Whales this was a very nice place to stay and the employees seem happy to be at work

Chris Earl

AMAZING!!! I travel a lot and the staff at Lake Wales is one of the nicest I’ve ever come across From the front desk to housekeeping, A+ service! It is nice to see that people still understand the concept of customer service in this day and age I do have to point out one person in particular

The lovely lady who managed/staffed the buffet/dinner She was so kind to all guests and was just the sweetest!😊 Thanks again for such a wonderful week stay


We stayed in a wheelchair accessible room on the ground floor with a single bed Everything from the layout of the hotel and rooms to the breakfast selection and snack bar was impeccable Cleanliness is an understatement

My only personal complaint would be the bed Someone that has a bad back and needs a softer giving mattress, the bed was very stiff and I could feel every spring But that is to each his/her own preference Wonderful stay over all

IF I COULD PUT ZERO I WOULD when I tell you I highly do not recommend them, I HIGHLY DO NOT I was here for my job, and first things first only two of the ladies were nice, the two African American ladies

The First lady who checked me had no good customer Service and has an attitude until I had an issue now all of a sudden she wants to be nice and energetic My room had a huge roach a palmetto bug I call front desk she tells me she can’t send someone because maintenance is already left but she had me move me too another room thankfully the next day was my last night However, when I woke in the morning the new room had smaller medium sized roach in it These people need to do better what the maintenance and cleaning The place looks as if it’s clean but its very dirty Some of the towels in my new room had pubs on it The beds are not properly cleaned This place needs a lot of help And I have pictures and videos to prove I’m not just talking crazy or lying I really hope and pray that this place improve because it was nice

Sharon Dodsworth

We spent two nights and absolutely LOVED everything about it! We had two rooms One room for my Dad and one room for my husband and I and our two small dogs! We love that it is pet friendly! They have great accommodations for pet owners with grass areas and bag stations The rooms are spacious and clean!! The staff was AMAZING, friendly, helpful and accommodating!! The outdoor area for grilling and the fire pit area is beautiful! The location is perfect for dining, shopping, and a short drive to Tampa

We will definitely stay here again!!!

Alberto White

Stayed here in May when a nearby hotel had cockroaches and we needed a new one stat Front desk was great and they gave us a discount on the rate There was a mistake where we were accidentally double charged but it was easily sorted out with a phone call a few days later once we realized the issue

And refunded promptlyWould definitely stay here again if passing through

I’d give them more stars if I could! Went there recently for a company conference The rooms were very nice The staff there is top notch in all areas!!! Great attitudes, very professional, always on top of things

The food in all of the restaurants is phenomenal!!! Thank you for an awesome experience! Your staff made our experience there amazing!

Jane Harker

This is the best resort that I have ever stayed at! All resorts are beautiful inside but it was the staff that set this one apart Everyone was extremely friendly- from the lobby, to the catering servers, to the man that was changing the garbage outside in the parking lot Everyone had a big smile on their face, greeted us, and wished us a good day

The rooms were spacious and clean The bed was really comfortable I ate at the Deli twice and the food was delicious Needless to say, I would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking to visit this area

Steven Raymer

This is a great place for spending some fun family time The water park is entertaining enough for a full day I did appreciate not having to drive all the way into Orlando, but I would not want to stay here if I were visiting theme parks in Orlando and have to make that drive (though some may appreciate the distance)

You do feel like you have space here to unwind The golfing looks fantasticNote – if you are coming for the water park make sure you know which building you are in Ours was farther than we had anticipated and we would not have booked had we known that originally

Edward Bouyer

We got a Cabana room and man did I not regret the extra charge We had our own little patio with seating and direct access to the pool area The beds were very comfy and there was room for at least 6 people to sleep in the room

There was a room safe inside the huge walk-in closet The bar was nice and the bartender was cool The breakfast was the typical “free” hotel breakfast Fills an empty stomach I really enjoyed my stay, but our first night was kinda rough because the A/C stopped working in our room in the middle of the night They moved us to another room the next morning I was told by the front desk that they were going to discount the first night They didn’t, so they lost two stars because of thatUpdated 5/5/22: Thank you Marriott for your prompt response and rectification As I said, other than the A/C issue the hotel was great My review is changed to 5 stars to reflect that

Clayton Culbreth

Our stay here was wonderful The staff was always so great to us The rooms are very nice, updated, and they accommodate us with whatever we need

Also, they upgraded our room to a King suite and it is so nice We are beyond grateful for this hotel and their entire staff I cannot say enough about this hotel If you’re in Lakeland this is the place to stay We will definitely be coming back

Sentra Adelina

What a beautiful facility! Went there for a friend’s wedding! Love the presentation of the dining area! The grounds is absolutely beautiful! They had nice seating areas I particularly like the round table setting where the chairs are like a piece of pie that was very unique! I did make a suggestion that they have the bride and groom have a brick engraved with their marriage date would be a great idea to sell to the bride and groom as I added incentive! You could represent it to anybody in the past also! Also that blue building would be nice to be painted a different color! The blue is a little harsh not unless you get someone to paint a beautiful mural of a sky or something! Would make prettier area for taking pictures from the property! Thank you again for having such a beautiful facilities and such excellent hosts and hostesses that present it the party and wedding! The staff is awesome! The facilities was clean! I love their Brides room!

Amaris Diaz

Town Manor went above and on my special I can not thank them enough! The venue is absolutely stunning and all of the staff are kind and professional I 100% recommend this venue to all the lovers out there looking for somewhere special to tie the Knot! Christina and Gwen were attentive and caring to all of my needs and wants for my special day

They offer a multitude of customizable wedding decor, cakes, and food They treated us like family and personalized the space to my partner and I! Book now! You will not find another venue like this or the staff that fill that! Thank you Town Manor!! Truly a gem and one of a kind venue! I feel so lucky to have found this space 💓

John Moore

This is a beautiful venue for a wedding Everything seemed magical – except that it was an afternoon wedding and we all sat facing a rather brutal sun But, the view behind the bride and groom was as beautiful as the bride

Other than the sun, everything else seemed perfect Staff are wonderful The food served at the reception was delicious

I took my family of 9 to this resort and let me tell you my kids enjoyed every moment The pool was big and clean and they had a hot tub next to which made it so much better The price was to die for and everything was conveniently near by

It was great The only I would have to say is that they need to update the condominium like the beds and chairs Everything was very outdated I really didn’t mind because we were just there to sleep but you know is nice to sleep on a good bed too Other then that all the staff were great and always friendly I was always able to reach someone with questions I will be staying here again 😌

Court Knis

One of the grossest “hotel” stays I’ve ever stayed at and I travel a lot They charge a separate $70 cleaning fee per stay so we would expect the place we check into be clean as well The room we walked into was disgusting

Obviously not vacuumed floors with wrappers and old socks on the floors Kitchen backsplash and fridge visibly dirty Hair in bathroom And the most unacceptable part the mattress underneath was moldy and smelly We contacted the front desk immediately and they offered us a different room and we thought maybe it was a bad coincidence but that room was also not well cleaned but at least the mattresses weren’t moldy They were very uncooperative to work with and only said they would waive the cleaning fee for our stay which I sure hope so We checked out early without any other compensation to stay elsewhere than that dirty place Very unimpressed with quality and service

Luz De La Luna

This place is trash and nothing like the pics or positive posts The AC doesn’t work properly and there’s no way to get help The rooms are dusty, moldy, and smell terrible! The beds are very small, extremely uncomfortable and have torn and stained sheets/pillow cases/blankets

The staff is ghetto, unhelpful, and basically nonexistent The pool is disgusting with algae growing in it and has been taken over by an army of wild raccoons The pool chairs are either broken or covered in mildewThis place should be shut down for multiple health code violations

I encountered two ladies at different times in my stay last night at the desk Never have I met such professional, polite, nicely dressed front desk staff I have worked front desk at Hilton for many years and their service just blew me away

I encountered a small issue with my room, and they were so prompt in moving me to another room no questions asked They were shining exams of what Hilton hospitality should beThe hotel location, decoration and cleanliness was absolutely impeccable The ambiance of the hotel and restaurant was something out of a movie Just perfection The beds were soooo comfortable, bathroom beautiful The parking behind the hotel could use a bit more lighting for safety would be only point of improvementI would stay here again, and again, and again Management is doing an unbelievable job with this property Keep it up!

The housekeeping staff were so friendly and made sure we had fresh towels for our stay Front desk staff was very helpful explaining how to redeem tickets for food and swag Room was perfect for our 6 and 7 yr old! They loved the bunk beds and slept in both days we were there

Room had just enough space so the kids had play area and we could watch TV (Kids loved their own TV in their area) Great time and experience If you pay extra to include meals, they are served family style

KD Counseling

The staff is EXTREMELY KIND Everyone The facility is clean

Rooms have space, are clean and fun for kids Complimentary breakfast is a feast Again the service was amazing Lunch & dinner at the Skyline lounge was also outstanding Overall, I recommend families to come and experience the fun and not overcrowded hotel and park I actually had a chance to relax on this vacation Love it

Tiffany McClure

The staff were all so friendly All of the lifeguards were so kind, but Marco and Christian were amazing! My kids adored them We couldn’t have asked for a better stay

The hotel was clean, the food was surprisingly very good and our room was great We stayed for a week The only negative thing I can say is, when staying a week, the in room gift was the same everyday But such a small thing, overall the stay was fantastic

* To start withwe are 75 yrs old my husband is a 100% disabled Vietnam Vet

We have used this Best Western numerous times before and have been very satisfiedthis time 06/17 thru 06/20 was absolutely horrible! I had made our reservation a month ahead of time but was not told of renovations that were going to be happening My husband has heart problems and Parkinsons so I have to do all the driving After driving in 90+ heat for 6 hours we were looking forward to getting to the hotel and taking a nap We were assigned a room in a hall and next door to rooms that were being worked on All we could hear was hammers beating and loud drills so forget taking a nap The elevator we went up on we actually thought was a service elevator because it had quilts hanging on walls and was full of dust from sheet rock When we stepped out of the elevator we had to walk on plastic and be careful not to trip on extension cords all over the hall We came to Auburndale Florida because we have had 7 deaths in our family in the last two years and because of Covid have not been able to come down to be with the family Finally we got to come for a Memorial service and needed some quiet time after a very emotional day but what did we find hammering and drilling and loud talking In our bathroom when you stepped in the bathtub it felt like it was not attached to the floor it had a cracking noise and would give under your feetwe were afraid to use it The pressure in the toilet was hardly enough to flush * After paying $550 for a 3 night stay (using our points) we will never use this or any Best Western again and we told all of our relatives not to recommend this hotel to anyone else that needed a place to stay

Betty M Thompson

The rate for this hotel stay was too high for just an “ok” room There is nothing exceptional about this place It is clean, but everything is outdated

Housekeeping does an excellent job but the place still looks shabby For what I paid, I expected a better looking place The “bathfitter” tub made crackling noises which was disturbing A constant banging noise (like thumping) kept me awake for hours A chaise lounge in the room was comfortable but leather seat had lots of tears and bare spots I put a towel over it before sitting Careless management I do not plan to stay here again

Michelle Fencerilla

Awful experience and not sure how this hotel had actually pretty great reviews on Expedia makes me think they are all fake reviewsI just stayed here with my three kids 6,4, and 15m They placed us on the second floor that is being completely remodeled and the dust was absoulutely awful

Our door handle was left with finger marks which shows how much dust is in the air on that floor and the room smelled dusty as well I don’t think anybody should be placed on that floor while they are working on it let alone a family with a baby It’s not good for anybody to breathe that in The tub in the shower must have been cracked underneath because every step you took was such a loud creaking noise Not worth the price paid for the night at allI’m okay with the one star only because the continental breakfast was better than most these days

Not what I expectedWhile the front desk staff are very sweet & helpful and that’s very much appreciated, this hotel is in desperate need of refurbishmentThe first room we were given was extremely dirty

Dirt all over the floor and carpet, stains on the counters in the kitchen and bathroom (and on the tv), etcThe second room while a little better, was far from clean There were dirty spots on the walls and in the kitchen The couch had several strands of hair, as well as lots of dirt on it Walking barefoot on the carpet produced dirty and black feet Ew!The worst was the pull out mattress Stains all over itI asked for clean sheets and received torn yellow ones

Steven Dellorto

Outstanding! Being a pet friendly facility I was wondering how clean the rooms would be, they were immaculate!Beautiful facility, we will be using them again To you pet owners, clean up after your pet! You are not special, clean it up! I had to clean two pair of shoesNot the hotels fault, just selfish lazy pet owners
