Both of these will be the most convenient to your route coming from WPB, as the earlier poster said, Turnpike north to SR60 west to US27 north.

Hope this helps.
Thanks!

I actually booked the Hampton Inn but the reviews aren't over the top and neither really horrid so my hubby was second guessing me and whether it would be a risk. Kept telling him it is just an overnight stay.

I will still check out the cities that other posters suggested but if nothing sparks interest, most likely will just keep the Hampton Inn.

We stayed in a Hampton Inn in Davenport just 10 days ago. It was clean and very nice. The breakfast was kind of boring, but fine for 1 morning. It was called Hampton Inn Orlando Maingate South. It was about 25 minutes to get to Legoland. The only problem we had was finding it. It is JUST off I4 right behind the Denny's. The hotel is new, and our 2 year old GPS didn't have the address in it. The sign is kind of small. I am picky about hotels, and it was fine for me!

If I remember, we booked this one because the Lake Wales was too expensive. We needed to connecting rooms with a door inbetween because we had 3 kids with us (10, 11, and 14) So we were looking for a less expensive option.

I would expect the reviews to be like that. Its just a standard, run-of-the-mill Hampton Inn for those overnight stays. I think it would be fine for that.
