The young man at the front desk was very friendly and polite. Although this is an older hotel, it was clean and comfortable. The price was low medium. If you are looking for somewhere economical for a good nights sleep this is a good place. The breakfast is nothing to write home about, Cereal, milk, juice, no hot items. Plenty... More

We had to stay here because of some car issues. We didn't have a whole lot of choices but I think I would have rather slept in the car. My whole family of 5 was grossed out. It was dirty and smelly. We all felt itchy after sitting on the beds. Avoid if possible!

On a busy travel date for snowbirds, we found this room was the one of the LAST ROOMS available at America's Best and anywhere within about a 50 mile radius of Alachua (a couple behind us actually got the LAST room at this place). Seems that snowbirds were either leaving FL or arriving, and there was a biker's convention nearby,... More

On a trip back to North Fort Myers from Mobile, Al, we decided to stay over night half way. We had planned on Lake City, FL, but most hotels were booked so we continued on several exits and decided on this hotel as it was easy on and off the interstate. The clerk at the front desk was very pleasant... More

How I wish we had read prior reviews. We were bone-weary after 11 hours of driving and needed a place to stay. Location just off I75 was good, price was so-so. The first look at the room was a shock; stains in the toilet, unknown stains in the tub, floors filthy. Bathroom counter and sink needed thorough cleaning. Sheets were... More

When we got to are it smelled like urine. We asked the lady behind if all the rooms smell this bad. She blamed on the cleaning supplies. My kids eyes started burning soon as they walked in. I recommend you sleep in your car instead of this place

Hair dryer and refrigerator don't work...left the room at 10 am didn't return until 6 pm and soiled towels were removed but the room was not cleaned nor were there any clean towels! Had to request towels. Also when you touch the metal bar in the shower it emits a shock, very scary. Then I was questioned by staff when... More

This was an end-of-the day / don't want to drive at night lodging choice. The location is great, just off of I-75. But the rooms are awful. My room had that "sour" smell that comes from a water leak that is not cleaned up promptly and Florida temps and humidity pitch in to create a petri dish right in your... More
