The Holiday Inn Winter Haven is my top choice if you’re committed to staying in the small community surrounding LEGOLAND Florida. Just three miles from the park, this super-clean hotel opened in 2008 and gleams with modern style from top to bottom. Every room boasts a mini-fridge, free Wi-Fi, a huge flat-screen TV and a granite-tiled bathroom. The Holiday Inn also has a sparkling outdoor pool, a very large fitness room with televisions attached to the cardio machines, coin-laundry and a full-service restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner. The only bummer is that a complimentary breakfast is not part of the deal.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn because they offer 2 queen beds rather than 2 full beds. It was my best friend, 3 kids and myself. We asked for a rollaway bed, and it was given to us without issue. The room was clean. What I loved the most was this piece of furniture that was open in the middle where you could put your suitcases, shoes, etc. Also, the room had outlets and USB ports EVERYWHERE, which was great for the kids and their gadgets. The price was AMAZING. Above all no daily activity fee and free parking! Breakfast was also great. Kids eat free for breakfast and dinner.
This hotel does not honor room requests requested by platinum elite and spire elite members and they also do not offer complimentary breakfast. Keep this in mind if you have a large family or children. Nice customer service but will not go above and beyond to accommodate elite members. Small outdoor pool and decent gym. Clean for the most part. Some hair left behind on dresser in room and ottoman footstool. Bathroom was very clean which was nice and they provide additional sanitizing/cleaning wipes which I liked very much.
