Chrysler LHS. Luxury personified; this car has everything including leather seats.
For the first week. This one was in Davenport which is on US 27. Brand new homes, I was uncertain about its location, but if anything, it was a much better place than in Kissimmee. Lots of local amenities including a Denny's.
Nice and clean and on the beach front at Clearwater. But Don't expect to get much sleep, it seems that Clearwater Beach never sleeps.
Best Western, Clearwater Central. (now Travelodge)
The best hotel in the world, for me anyway. Located on US 19 we have been back every year since. Hot Spa, great pool and security patrolled. 15 min from beach. Shops nearby include Target, Best Buy and the Dollar Tree. Great Buffet Buddy Freddy also close by. A Scouser lady works there as well.
Travelodge, Maingate East. (now Holiday Inn)
Big hotel directly across from Kissimmee Old Town. Lots of onsite amenities and close to good eateries, including Ponderosa.
This one started off a bit of a disaster. My wife forgot to repack my driving licence after using it for something else. It cost a small fortune to have it shipped to London and then over by FedEx as well as costing us two days enjoyment. It did get better though and the villa certainly helped.
