Horrible hotel!!!Posted Apr 8, 2013
We arrived at the hotel in the late afternoon. The general appearance from the outside looked NOTHING like the picture on your site. The front desk consisted of a small room with a plexiglass front and a slot at the bottom used for payment. Out of curiosity, we looked at the room which had a very thin mattress on a king bed and a broken formica sink next to it. We didn't stay.

The location was convenient but that is about the only good thing i could say. It is obvious that very little renovation has been done. The dress in the room was in such poor shape i wouldn't put it in my shop. The desk lamp had to turned on and off by screwing the light bulb in or out. The switch had been removed. The bath tub was very slick with no rubber mat. Two people almost fell. The last night there was a party next door that was still going when we left at 0600 the next morning. The desk clerk refused to do anything about it. terrible experience.

You get what you pay for - I'm not complainingPosted Mar 27, 2012 on Hotels.com
My father, sister, and I stayed here for two nights in order to attend a couple of Detroit Tigers spring training baseball games. The Relax Inn is very close to Joker Marchant Stadium (about a half mile walk) and charming downtown Lakeland (about a two-mile drive) and that's why we booked it. Don't get me wrong, we weren't expecting Hilton-like amenities but the list of cons is just too long to bear: One of the door keys would not work despite having it “activated” for a second time, the toilet didn't flush all the way, the lighting was lacking, the outlets were faulty, the window wouldn't stay open, the box spring was broken causing my mattress to slump down on one side (very annoying!), there was no privacy in that the sink and mirror are located not in the bathroom but out in the open directly next to the bed (very weird!), the parking lot was filthy and full of debris, the air was musty, and the overall condition of the room was unsanitary to say the least. Moreover, the lobby doors were kept wide open all night, which was concerning because the Relax Inn is located in a not-so-safe part of town. Granted, it was cheap and all we needed it for was to sleep. So in that regard it met our needs just fine. But we will choose a nicer, more secure place next time we’re in town, even if it means we have to jump in the car to get to the game!

No so Relax'inPosted Mar 7, 2012 on Hotels.com
This place is a "hole" if all you want is a bed to flop on go for it. If you are looking for any sence of comfort or security look else where.

Bad experiencePosted Mar 7, 2012
Pros: Close to ballpark
This was a type of motel that rents by the week which lends it to be unsavory type of place to stay. The only thing was its close to the ballpark.

The Relax Inn in Lakeland, FloridaPosted Feb 19, 2012 on Hotels.com
Most horrible hotel I have ever stayed at.The rooms were dirty, windows would not lock, sheets were worn and had cigarette holes in several places..Air conditioner/heater in terrible shape and would not work. Box springs had nasty stains on them along with stains on the lamp shades and ceiling. Whole place filthy and sign at office said No Returns so if you were unhappy with room, TOO BAD for you. I would never recommend it to anyone. Avoid this place !
