I love Florida! Why? Well, I just do. Florida has so much to offer… I could go on and on. So yes, it should come as no surprise that I want to tell my friends about Fun hotels in Florida. 

Florida hotels, resorts, or villas are a great way to make your vacation experience complete. There are luxuries, fancy accommodation, conference rooms, and amazing staff in these hotels.

They also have restaurants, swimming pools, saunas, and gyms that you can enjoy during your stay with them.

You can find fun hotels in Florida in amazing parts of the state, near museums, beaches, and theme parks where kids will love them so much!

1. Great Escape Lakeside

You’re looking for a fun hotel in Florida, right?

In a nutshell, Great Escape Lakeside is FUN!

To say Great Escape is one of the most interesting places to stay in Clermont, Florida, with games in every room, is an understatement!

If you have a family or are a kid at heart, you will have a blast at Great Escape Lakeside!

It’s right close to a lake and has dozens of human-sized outdoor AND indoor games, as well as a game show.

There are 13 rooms with a total capacity of 46 people!

Curious about what’s inside?

Each room, on the other hand, has a different game theme, such as PacMan, monopoly, scrabble, clue, vegas, laser tag, and others.

Among the various activities available are Human Foosball, fishing and canoeing, sleeping in a 360-degree Pac-man maze, arcade games, slot machines, and watching movies in the Jumanji-themed theater.

How about swimming in a 40,000-gallon ‘Go Fish’ pool, spa, lazy river, multi-story waterslide, and much more?!

2. Amelia Schoolhouse Inn

Amelia Schoolhouse Inn, built in the late 1800s, was initially used as a learning facility on Amelia Island.

During the twentieth century, this location was changed from a school to a multi-use property, where it remained for many decades.

In 2018, the property was completely renovated into a boutique hotel with 17 guest rooms, an outdoor pool, a courtyard, and an upscale bar.

This inn, which retains some of the original school characteristics while adding modern elements, is ideal for individuals who enjoy old and historic buildings!

Amelia Schoolhouse Inn is also close to a number of local attractions.

You can rent a bike from the friendly staff and explore the neighborhood shops, restaurants, bookstores, and even the beach.

3. Sanford’s Houseboat

This 60-foot, two-story houseboat in Sanford, Florida, is not your typical vacation home!

Sanford’s Houseboat is one of the most ideal and unique places to stay in Florida, with smart TVs, a strong Wi-Fi connection, enormous comfortable beds, and enough kitchen appliances to satisfy your demands.

The houseboat is safely and permanently anchored in one of the marinas on Lake Monroe, so guests do not need to worry about it being unstable.

It has more space and amenities than a standard room and is just feet from the water!

Sanford Houseboat is conveniently positioned among eateries and popular tourist attractions.

Many local businesses, art galleries, and wine bars are already within walking distance!

4. Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort

Universal’s Cabana Bay Resort is a vibrantly designed Florida hotel located adjacent to Universal Orlando.

It makes the list of the most unusual places to stay in Florida due to its charming retro theme, which reminds me of the Jetsons.

There are block colors everywhere and loads of exciting things to do.

Most of the colorful suites have views of the theme park and water park; everything at Universal is within walking distance!

It’s not quite on the beach as its name suggests… If you count the waterpark next door, it’s only a few steps away.

The entire family may rest comfortably in family suites that sleep up to six people and include a kitchenette, or they can unwind in one of the hotel’s basic rooms that sleep up to four people.

The hotel is a short walk from both Universal Orlando theme parks and the Universal CityWalk food and entertainment area, or you may use the complimentary shuttle buses that run between the two.

It’s cheap family fun from another era. If you enjoy offbeat hotels and theme parks, this could be your next Florida vacation.
