Reeds Motel: A Great Escape In Central Florida

Reeds Motel Everyone seems to be on a tighter budget these days, but with outstanding summer golf packages throughout Florida, it's easier than ever to treat yourself to a Florida golf vacation.

One of the best known areas for value, fun and fantastic golf is Highlands County. Just a short drive from the Gulf Coast you can experience 13 championship courses while escaping to a less chaotic part of Florida where the workday routine of pounding the pavement is replaced by strolling the fairway or kicking back as the sun drops out of the sky.

The neon silhouette of a bikini-clad beauty plunging toward the pool at Reeds has been recognized as an Avon Park landmark since the 1950s. The hotel itself has been marvelously modernized with 17 spacious rooms and a penthouse suite, while the diving diva’s sparse wardrobe has been updated with a trendy new swimsuit. North of 50, she continues to avoid looking her age.

The down-home hospitality of owners Tami & John keeps people coming back to this charming boutique motel known for its the family atmosphere, clean rooms and free hot breakfast that includes Bloody Mary's prepared fresh by John each morning. And once your round of golf is in the books, Happy Hour commences at the Oasis with hors d'orves, cold beer, wine and cheese.

Through the years, Reeds has been recognized with several awards, including Avon Park Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year in 2005 and ’06, and Highlands County Business of the Year 2007.

But the reviews on the hotel’s Web site (, tell the whole story.

“We stayed at your motel to attend a family reunion,” one satisfied customer wrote. “We ended up having more fun at your motel than the reunion. We'll be back!”

“We just returned from a fantastic week of golf, relaxation, and hospitality…all thanks to John and Tami at Reeds Motel,” exclaimed the spokesman for a group of 16 golfers. “They really know how to make their guests feel welcome! They pre-arranged the tee times, accommodations, and after-golf activities and everything went off without a hitch. The facilities at Reeds Motel are updated, spotless, and designed for comfort, all in a nostalgic setting. I highly recommend this motel and congratulate John and Tami on doing a first-class job.”

Summer Golf Packages at Reeds include two nights stay and three rounds of golf, starting at only $129.
