"Was better before"
I stayed at Green Gables before and its service as well as its upkeep has gotten bad. asked for additional pillows, not available. Phone in room did not work glad I had a cell phone, but needed to leave room to ask for pillows/towels in front desk. Received a knock on my door every morning to find out if either we were checking out or what time we would […] be out of the room. We will not be staying again or recommending Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Probably used to be nice resort"
Very dated and run down. Lobby was nice. Pool was nice but furniture, pool deck, and landscaping were all shabby, brokedown and dirty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Older facilities that are in need of updating .Clean rooms and amenities with friendly service and smiles. Great for overnight stay that is cost efficient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great people.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Decent--but B'fast could be better. It lacked protein, fruit and other options like yogurt.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Disappointed with Green Gables Inn"
I was very disappointed with the condition of the room which included dirty sheets, debris on the bed quilt, dirty towels and a foul odor in the room. I had to contact the manager on duty several times in order to have the above addressed. In addition, the evening manager did not (apparently) know the correct way to connect to the WIFI. As a result, […] I was unable to access the internet as I intended. I stayed at Green Gables about 5 years ago and conditions were much better than this. I hold the owner of the facility responsible for not staying on top of things at his/her hotel. I won't return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK but not great"
The staff was very friendly, but the room was older and in need of an update. It was just OK for a quick overnight stop.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"our bok tower trip"
The desk manager was so nice, he gave us every courtesy. We booked on line and everything was easy when we got there. It is an older hotel, but very nicely kept. We enjoyed our stay very much with one exception. The water pipes were trying to sing us to sleep. Great location to see bok tower gardens, only 2 miles away. I would definetly stay there again […] when im in the area. Nice pool and fising lake, good restaraunt next door. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Green Gables - Lake Wales"
Old, dated motel that is in good shape considering its age. Park just outside the door - rooms are small but adequate. Staff was very friendly. My room had one very small issue with a small area of wall peeling adjacent to the tub/shower. Much less expensive than the chain facilities in the area. Well worth the value when traveling on a budget.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Green Gables Inn We at Green gables thank you for your comments. Thank you
"Comfortable, Clean and well equipped"
We were pleasantly pleased. The outside isn't a good indication of the room. Our room was cozy, w/ a fridge, a microwave and a coffee maker. They have a free breakfast in the office, which was nice, had small assortment of bagels ,pastries with a waffle maker. I'd skip the coffee and head 2 miles up the street to the Dunkin Donuts. Only minutes away […] from the Bok Tower Gardens. Overall, nice experience and we would recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Looked a lot nicer at nite"
We arrived late at night. The outside of the buildings looked real nice in the dark with all of the neon lit. The office where you check in is nice. Once we got inside the room we quickly realized how old and poorly maintained the place was. Ceiling in the restroom was pealing and the caulking around the bathtub had mildew growing on it. The room had […] a musty smell and the bedspread and carpeting wear very old and worn. Had we not been tired and needed sleep we would have went elsewhere. Not worth the $100.00! The next morning in the daylight we could see just how dated the place really is. I'm sure it was a nice place 30 years ago. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The young woman at the desk was pleasant, but the first room we were given smelled horribly of mold (which you could see on the ceiling and down the wall) and of smoke. We asked for another room which smelled better but the bed was terrible, the AC made tons of noise (as did both neighbors all night) and in the morning - the shower head was spraying […] water in every direction except where it should. When my husband tried to tighten it - it just fell off. When we told the morning staff (less nice man that day) he couldn't have cared less. We were so glad we only booked one night and would never stay again. The rate was also really high for the horrible quality. I know it's March in FL, but seriously.

Response by Green Gables Inn I am sorry about that. The man you show next morning was very nice to you and told you that we will get it fixed and also told you that he could come right now and fix it but you refused for that service and said you know what it is like because you mange apartments . You also said your husband will fix it. Thank you for staying with us
The place was okay and our destination was to far and the only place availableGenuine Expedia guest review
Smell bad, dury, i can't sleep with the smell, :( bad ugly hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly owners! great facilities"
It was further away than we had wanted to be (show in /Fort Meade) but the commute was easy and the facilities were great. The restaurant next ddoor has deliscious food and very courteous staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little house keeping goes a long way"
The location of the hotel was very convienient and the front desk service was great.. The room was large, but had a weird smell to it and the bathroom was not up to my standards of clean... The floor in our room needed a good vacuuming as well... It doesn't bother me to stay in a dated hotel, especially when I need some place quick and easy to get to, […] but I want it to be clean!! Clean rooms will get you repeat business quicker than anything in my book... We won't go back to this one unfortunately Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
it was a place to sleep and eat next doorGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not return, not recommend."
This was our worst experience ever in a hotels.com motel. Even though room was far from road, parking lot noise and noise from nearby guests through thin walls spoiled any chance of a happy rest.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the room was clean; however, there was aloud a/c unit that made the bathroom extremely noisey. if u closed the bathroom door then the noise was elimated...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
When we got to the room we were shocked with peeling paint, turned over the sheets and found cherious inside. Went to office and complained and they gave us another room. First bed had stains in middle of sheets but other but other bed was tolerable and it was late so we stayed. We slept in or socks because the floor was so dirtyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Older 60's style motel in very good shape."
Very satisfied. Nicely kept older motel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The for sale sign on the property is a clue."
This motel is straight out the 1950s and hasn't changed much since. The staff and management were fine. The room was clean, beds were comfortable and a low price so men would be OK with it but I caution anyone bringing their wife.Genuine Expedia guest review
Was a decent match hotel, but this last experience was bad. We've decided to move on and spend a little extra to have a cleaner environment.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
it was comfortable older hotel and a restaurant by it and the breakfast bar was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was a convenient location to rest before continuing on to my destination. I almost missed it however because the sign is small. But I realize local ordiances may prohibit a larger one. Everyone was very pleasent and helpful. But....there was used soap left in the tub and used towels left on a shelf in the bathroom. And...after taking a shower […] and walking from the bathroom to my bed I had dirt on the bottom of my feet! I told the man about it the next morning when I checked out and he immediately started telling me that that just couldn't be. I said I'm sorry but that was my experience. He said he would see who cleaned that room yesterday. But he acted like he didn't believe me!!!! Sorry, I will never return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good stay if going to Legoland."
It is really close to Lagoland and has a nice dining place on the same plaza. Didn't have any big concerns axcept AC was a little loud, but this is common to motels like this.Genuine Expedia guest review
"My Stay at Green Gables Inn"
The room was very out dated and is in much need of good maintenance, many things in the room were in need of repair. The bed was not comfortable at all and the pillows were very flat.Genuine Expedia guest review
The place could use a serious facelift. It looks a bit run down, but the people running the place were great. The rooms could use a freshen up as well, but the room was comfortable. WIFI was non-existent during my stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Green Gables Inn Hi Tom Thank you for your comments About the wifi did you ask the front desk for help and would like to know if you did than what did front desk say. As far as the rooms goes Yes we do know that they need painting. We always try and do it when we can get it done We started painting few days ago. We do try and keep up with what we can at all times. We also just got done re sealing the parking lot this long weekend. We hope you will stay with us next time you are in town. Again we thank you
It was ok. Not very up to date, but cheap and safe.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lakeside "Resort" this is NOT"
I almost gave up my one night deposit (for my one night stay) and went elsewhere when we drove up to this motel. It is very dingy on the outside and even dingier on the inside. The paint in the room was peeling, tile in the shower cracked, not enough super thin, almost see-through towels for even two people, and the room smelled when we walked in. I […] had to get my air freshener out of the car. The beds didn't even have bed skirts, just bare box springs under the mattresses. Only two, very flat pillows per queen size bed and no spares in closet or otherwise. Gross, white plastic chairs on the "patio" were dirty and stained so I was afraid to sit down. Also, just go ahead and skip the free breakfast. It wasn't even worth free. The one mini muffin I nearly tried was hard and stale enough to shatter a car window if thrown at it. The lobby coffee was ok, but the cups they provide for it are thimble-sized. I would never stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Spend a little more to stay someplace else"
Very poorly maintained, lousy continental breakfast, adequately clean, no wireless access, no premium channels as stated just basic Direct TV. Glad it was just for one night :/Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nothing Fancy. Clean.Restaurant/lounge next door"
Older, nothing fancy, clean quite place. Had a microwave and a refrigerator. Beds were good. All I needed for a one night stay. Fairly good restaurant/lounge next door open until 9PM. The staff here and at restaurant were friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
My wife and I enjoyed Green Gables. The owners were very polite and the overall cleanliness was good. A dip in the pool was a treat on the 80+ degree day for our kids who are attending heart institute a bit down the road. Shampoo, toothpaste, skin cream was provided by hotel. Too bad tooth brushes were not since my wife forgot her's. The Bok Garden […] is close by, a must see! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK for passing through Lake Wales"

"Older property but well-kept"
Suited my needs adequately. Owners quite pleasant. Typical low-end cost-cutting measures were an annoyance...no change of linens.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is the third time we have stayed there. Old but clean. Owners very friendly. Walls thin. Listened to neighbors tv most of the night Pillows flat. Three towels for four people. It was cold and we were very tired so we made do and tried to sleep. Didnt eat breakfast there. Very limited store packaged stuff. But it was clean and that was the most […] important thing.

"not worth the money"
I was very disapointed in the quality of the room the a/c was noisy an the towels were worn an disgusting an when u turned on the water rust came out of the faucets. Would not recommed this hotel ive stayed in cheaper hotels with better quality. Thank KencGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Over all ok but the staff needs to understand that when there is women along try to have non smoking rooms in the front not why in back of building.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice, convienent, friendly staff,.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Oldie but Goodie"
This is an old hotel, but clean and budget priced. The management is serious and devoted to "their" hotel. So, don't look for new or high-rise, but enjoy a good night's sleep in a clean and comfortable room in an old Florida location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Do not expect a brand new hotel, as this is not, But I stayed for 5 weeks and enjoyed it very much. The rooms are very large, the owners were easy to work with and helpful. There is a restaurant within walking distance. At no time did I feel unsafe in this location. The Wifi in my room worked great. Parking was conveniently close to the room. I felt […] the breakfast served my needs. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nor worth the money I paid."
The TV only had 3 channels that were watchable.....and was showing episodes of the same three shows.The rest of the channels were infomercials. The wifi was so weak my kindle or cell couldn't pick it up. Ok for a one night stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Was alright... Must have a car if you want to do anything ..nothing in walking distance .. Front desk was very friendly and niceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
worst hotel internet I have ever had. I had to take my laptop off the desk and sit with it in the window to get reception. Free breakfast was a 2 on a scale of 1 to 10. No milk for the coffee, no fruit, no eggs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"MOM AND POP MOTEL OF THE 50'S"
THIS IS OLDER ONE LEVEL MOTEL. ROOM WAS SMALL, BUT CLEAN. THE AC WAS SO LOUD YOU COULD HARDLY HEAR TV OR SLEEP. WE COULD HEAR PEOPLE TALKING IN NEXT ROOM. CONT. BREAKFAST WAS BARE MINIMUM. STAFF (HUSBAD AND WIFE) WERE EXTREMELY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. A LITTLE PRICEY FOR WHAT YOU GET. OK FOR ONE NIGHT.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Place at a Fair Price"
Pretty basic Hotel room, it was clean,the receptionist was friendly, the hotel seems dated and rather old but overall it is a good hotel stay for the price. I will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pet friendly and clean"
Pet friendly and quiet. This motel circa 1956 was well maintained, clean and good breakfast. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I am glad that we took Hwy 27 north through the Lake Wales, FL area as we would of never found this blast from the past.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
