Hampton Inn/Holiday Inn - You can't go wrong with either of these locations because they are owned by the same person.  Both hotels are excellent and conveniently located in Winter Haven near dining, shopping, Legoland, etc.

If you choose any one of these locations and make your reservations directly, please let them know that you were referred by the Southern Outdoorsman Guide Service. We know that Westgate River Ranch or Grape Hammock Fish Camp will take real good care of you, as we are their exclusive bass fishing guide.
