One of Winter Haven's finest motels, convenient ot Beautiful Cypress Gardens on Hwy 540.  Luxurious, but not expensive.  20 Beautiful "King-Size", air-conditioned, heated roofully carpeted, T.V., heated tile bathrooms.  Fun for all, colorful pool, sun deck, and shuffleboard.  Guests enjoy golf, room phones and country club privileges.  Restaurant and shopping center adjacent.
(This motel was demolished some years ago.  I always enjoyed walking or riding past it as a kid.  It always looked clean and inviting and had a great retro feel.)
