We came to stay here because our Florida vacation was cut short due to storms. We were happy to find a friendly staff, clean hotel, great pool and even free drinks and snacks. We also left some stuff in our room and they shipped it to us. Fantastic experience after a disappointing vacation!

The carpet in our room was disgustingly filthy... We travel, year round, almost every week, around the world and the U.S... This was the grossest, stickiest carpet, ever for a hotel in this range of ratings... We stay with IHG and Holiday Inns, easily monthly... BUT, this, alone, is a reason never to return, here. The staff, was wonderful... The... More

This is a nice hotel located directly off the interstate. There is a nice selection of chain restaurants within walking distance. Indoor pool was nice even though it was a little small. Check-in was quick and easy. Beds were comfortable. A/C in the room worked great. The free breakfast was well stocked and very good.

The elevator was incredibly shaky and the elevator permit was expired. When we were about to leave I had a bug attached to me. This is the only one I saw but it wasn't a good thing anyways. Their breakfast wasn't very good either. I had a biscuit, with butter and grape jelly, and some bacon. The biscuit was extremely... More

Stopped at this hotel while traveling, unplanned. We couldn't get through by phone but Daniel was very attentive when we arrived and we got a nice king room with jacuzzi (extra $$). Didn't get to use the jacuzzi tub and it was a little hard to get in and out of for a shower. Next time would book ahead for... More

Stopped at this hotel for a few hours to get some sleep on my way home from the beach and my husband "paid" with rewards points. Upon arrival the clerk acknowledged that the room was to be with by points, but would need my card for accidentals. We checked out 6 hours later and I confirmed at checkout once again... More

Stopped here in April 2015 on our way to Florida from Ohio. It had been a long day of driving and this hotel definitely provided the rest and comforts we needed. Very clean, nice pool area, great continental breakfast area. Friendly and welcoming staff. Would definitely stay here again when traveling to Florida!
