Fodor's Expert Review Pier II Resort
2200 S.E. U.S. 441, Okeechobee, Florida, 34974, USA
This two-story hotel has one of the only swimming pools in the area, and it is on the rim canal that has a five-story observation tower for peeking over Lake Okeechobee's levee. Out back are a 650-foot fishing pier and The Boathouse, one of the lake area's best hangouts for shooting pool or watching TV, attracting a mix of locals and out-of-towners. You get a free drink ticket upon arrival. The best rooms are the suites, which are actually efficiency apartments with full kitchens.
