Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express Lake Wales N Winter Haven An Ihg Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Nice and clean."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
My family and I stayed for two nights. Our hotel room was very clean, staff was very friendly. We picked this hotel because it’s pet friendly. The only negative was the breakfast, it was a heat and serve type breakfast, nothing fresh about it. Thee is however plenty of Restaurants nearby IHOP, Denny’s etc. Overall we had a great experience.

"Innapropriate to say wheelchair accessible."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Very nice hotel, friendly and helpful staff, but the hotel is not wheel chair accessible. The threshold on the doors is to high for a wheel chair bound individual to cross over without assistance. The bed is WAY to high for a disabled person to get in and out of. I assume the term wheel chair "accessible" is used with the understanding that a disabled person is in that wheel chair. My wife was unable to get in and out of the bed byh herself and it was difficult to impossible for me to lift her in and out. We had to leave and missed our trip to Bok Towers Gardens. It should be understood that wheel chair "accessible" means more than just room for the wheel chair, it clearly indicates a disabled person. The manager was very nice and tried to help, but the hotel is not really prepared for disabled persons in wheel chairs.

"Clean and Roomy."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We usually stay at Sheraton and Marriott but since the dog came on this trip, our options were limited. We were pleasantly surprised that this hotel was immaculate, didn't smell of dogs and had lots of amenities. Staff was very polite and timely, located near lots of stores; would definitely stay here again.

"Awesome Customer Service!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I came to Florida to visit Legoland with my kids. The front desk personal gave me great tips about the park, assisted me when I was suffering from an allergic reaction, and helped me with other random needs. Also, the breakfast was great and the people serving the food were friendly and helpful. The housekeepers were also friendly. I recommend this hotel for anyone staying in the area.
