This motel is under construction but is a great value for the $$. We were in an old room, therefore the toilet and sink were very low. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the breakfast was extraordinary.

I had a wonderful time at the hotel. I especially want to say how helpful Marshall at the front desk was. Everyone was nice, but Marshall was really the one that went the extra mile to make sure I was comfortable. Even during his lunch break he came to make sure my internet was working properly and that I had no worries. I send a thank you to him, and to the Howard Johnson Lakeland

Upon checking into this hotel I was extremely impressed on the overall curb appeal. This housekeeping staff gets a gold star! Front desk staff was also very efficient and professional, and the free breakfast was superb. Great way to get a full tank before visiting the sights around Lakeland. However upon checking out, the front desk held my the bags for me and after picking up my luggage later on I realized my tablet had gone missing. Save from this, overall good experience.

The hotel is cheap; I mean the windows that aren't supposed to open, open and there is no security since the doors do not close. the noise is awful, you hear everything from the outside. With the blinds closed, you can still see into the room, there is a large gap. The breakfast was practically nothing. I went down right at 6(starts at 6) so I could leave for work, and there was either nothing out, or what was out was ice cold! The front desk staff was awesome though.

We were staying in the hotel only for one night. Staff was friendly, Room was clean, air condition was quiet. For breakfast they served scrambled eggs, wafers, some fruits and yoghurt. Wifi signal was good. Good value for that amount of money.

Front Desk staff was great! Windows are open to the newly redone rooms and they look great can't wait to stay in one! Breakfast was best I ever seen in a budget hotel. I use this hotel frequently and it just gets better and better. Hats off to the new management.

I have frequented the Howard Johnson at this location many nights since May 2016 and would recommend it to anyone. Jason, General Manager, and his team have made tremendous improvements to the property. All of the staff, including the housekeepers, were most accommodating and friendly. My room was very clean and smelled fresh. I can't write a review and not mention Howard Johnson's, Oasis Bar. The Oasis has an awesome bartender, Alicia. She is friendly and makes the best Margaritas. They offer... Read more

We have been coming to this hotel for the past 10 years, what a change in the room services. Rooms are being updated, a little better than before. Had a room for 7 nights. Free breakfast from 6 to 9am is OK, for a quick start to a day. Pool was clean and warm, towels were supplied at the front desk. The floor in the room was never cleaned during the entire stay, and question if it has been washed recently, white socks turned black after walking around in the room in the morning. We only sle...

Brian the Manager is definitely an asset.....Minor issues resolved immediately to our satisfaction.....Pool always clean and well maintained. We will return without hesitation......We haven't tried breakfast yet but will on next visit. Once again Brian is really trying hard to turn this hotel around. We stopped coming here because other management had no concern for guests or their comfort but Brian has definitely made an impression.......Thank you!!

Im from up north and have been around the ghetto this room is not what I expected for a hotel out of town. My wife booked the room and after we got there she begged me to leave but I could deal with. I dont know where to start though, it seems like a good place for when your young and want to party. People were smoking in the rooms, hanging out of their rooms walking the parking lot with no shoes. The room itself was didn't smell the freshest. Paint was on the curtains all over the ceiling line.... Read more

The staff is the best there ever was. All issues upon check in were solved due to the supr of housekeeping. I'd stay here anytime but gotta leave now. Apples, oranges, no meat or eggs so the rest is carbs. This place was booked up with hurricane escapers. Channel 10 news was here also interviewing some. Look at the pic included. This is such a lovely place. The TV has a TV guide ch 2 FYI.

We had to use this hotel due to the evacuation caused by Hurricane Mathew. The hotel is completely rundown. The carpets were wet and the bathroom looked as if it hadn't been cleaned in several years. The maid spent 20 minutes in the room "cleaning" but there was no way to tell what had been done and the beds were unmade. The one bright light in the whole hotel was Amanda, she was very responsive and tried to get all of the issues addressed as they occurred. I would never recommend this hotel... Read more
