May Small Business of the Month – LeMans Apartments/Suites

Carlton Hodges
LeMans Apartments/Suites
1501 Shepherd Road, Suite 5
Lakeland, FL 33811-2172

In 1987, construction began on a 15-acre site located on Shepherd Road in Lakeland. The property was built in phases and became known as LeMans Apartments/Suites. LeMans consists of 147 unfurnished, long-term rental units and 50 completely furnished, short-term rental units. The short-term rental units were developed after a voiced need from local, national and international businesses for their employees to have a homelike atmosphere while away from home on business trips. These short-term rental suites include a washer and dryer, high speed Internet and unlimited local and long distance phone service. To keep the units as impeccable as possible, housekeeping is also offered.

The philosophy at LeMans is to treat people how one wants to be treated. The staff understands the value of customer satisfaction and strives to meet the goal of repeat business. Customers are always made to feel welcome at LeMans. In addition, the property is well-maintained and continually upgraded in order to provide guests with an optimal experience.

Owner and President of LeMans, Mr. Hodges is active in the community and involved with the Lakeland Area Chamber of Commerce, the Polk County Builders Association, HBA Association, NAHB, Dixie Youth in Mulberry and serves on the Lakeland Hotel/Motel Association Board. Moreover, LeMans donates appliances that are being upgraded to various charities. Mr. Hodges firmly believes that people need to give back to the community through involvement.

The Lakeland Area Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate LeMans Apartments/Suites as the Small Business of the Month for May.
