On the plus side, the location is convenient, and we did get a place to stay on short notice. The manager on duty gave us great advice on local eating places. On the negative side (and we realize this was not necessarily the hotels fault) we had people shouting outside our room TWICE after we went to sleep, around midnight.... More

First of all the lady on the front office was rude. At 2:00 am I go to the bathroom. And there a very large rat in bath tub. I got my bags and left. I will never go back to this trash dump. I have filed a report with the county health dept.

A true old school roadside motel. I liked that about it. People were friendly. The room was a nice size, and clean. We were only there one night. But, $100 seems like a lot. I guess people are willing to pay that... we did. Still, the place could use some spiffy-ing up. Then the price tag might seem fair.

1st off the front desk guy was nice.The drink machine was out of order and $100 dollars is WAY over priced for the accommodation's. If you would place this motel in the city I live in, it would be full of drug dealers, drug user's and hookers. Don't plan on staying there again unless it for $30 ... And that... More

Clean, comfy, well-kept, friendly, accommodating, etc. I have nothing but good to say about our stay at this mom & pop. We loved it. The staff was friendly and went above and beyond to meet our needs. Good cooling for our room. Staff was very knowledgeable of area and directed us to sites of interest. Will return to this mom...

We had read the reviews. It was just what we wanted. Came on granddaughters' Spring Break. We got a suite, which gave the girls their own area. Motel folks are easy to deal with and helpful at recommendations. We didn't go to the upscale restaurants or boutiques, but had great food and a great time on the beach and at... More

We stayed here 1 night on our way to New Orleans. Wanted to drive up the coast from Tampa. It was okay for myself but my Girlfriend didn't like it. We booked a non smoking room but the room smelled of smoke. Management ( husband & wife) was very responsive of situation and did their best to make us happy.... More

We've stayed at the Rancho Inn several times over the years. The staff are very helpful and nice. The rooms and grounds are clean. It's an older hotel, so it has it's issues. Squeaky showers and such. Someone hooked up the hot water wrong in one shower, these are minor issues though. As far as I know they have the... More
