Hotel is just average but staff is outstanding. Breakfast was included and one of the best free breakfast we had. Room was quite and bathroom was in need of a redo. Going to Bartow again and will use this hotel.

Was very pleased with the accommodations. The rooms were nice. One review I read said something about TV guide which was on the TV. One review talked about outdated rooms. 4th floor was being redone. Shows me they listen to their reviews. Great place, breakfast was good and staff was very friendly and helpful. 5th star not there simply because...

Stayed at this HIE for a week. Every this was as expected from an HIE. The only thing which stood out and I felt was even better than regular Holiday Inns was the service of the front desk agents, housekeeping staff and the restaurant staff. They all were extremely friendly and it was always great to be welcomed by the...

We stayed here on a visit to Legoland. I wasn't sure based on other reviews, but it's a nice, clean hotel. The location is a little weird (not unsafe, just not what you'd expect). But really it's very convenient to Legoland (15 minute drive) and downtown Bartow (less than 5 minutes). And there's everything you'd need when traveling pretty close....

Paper thin walls and a business computer which didn't print were the lowlights of my 3 day stay. The highlights: free hot breakfast which included not just high carbs. Asked for quiet room, they tried by giving me a room on top floor, but with paper thin walls - talking on the phone next door was pretty loud. Also in...

Stayed here for one night while visiting my daughter at college. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The setting was very quiet amidst a residential neighborhood. Breakfast was great with a variety of foods.

The hotel is located behind a bunch of buildings but is quiet and serene. Well kept grounds and facility. The rooms were very clean and spacious. The hallway rugs against the walls could be cleaner. Breakfast was clean and decent selection.

We went to Legoland in route to Disney. Place was perfect. Staff was friendly, only about a 10 minute drive to the park. Free breakfast in the morning. You have your choice of restaurants all in the immediate area. Perfect
