Great value for the price similar to Best Western. Clean rooms inviting pool good breakfast and the owners are friendly and helpful. Close to downtown and local sites like Mt. Dora and Orlando. While there are some negative reviews our experience was most acceptable. Enjoy.

Friendly and Good Service. Free breakfast is very good. The rooms are good for the price. Access is easy. The hotel was very busy and you can sleep during the nights. Free internet works but is very slow. I will stay again next year for the same activity.

This place was reserved for 3 nights for the Christmas holiday. It was absolutely horrendous! The dirtiest filthiest hotel room I have ever encountered. We could only stay for 1 night and the Manager wanted to keep our deposit we had to scream and holler for them to return our money. They still charged us for the night. There were... More

This staff is wonderful! They were so helpful when it came to fulfilling our requests and needs! They didn't disappoint us once. Sure the place could use some renovations, but above all everything was amazing!! We will be back again, keep up the good work!

We rented this through Priceline for a three night stay. The beds were lumpy, the floors dirty. Lots of noisy activity through the night which we thought might be drug related by the yelling, pounding on the doors during the night, cars pulling in and out. Or by the looks of the clientele it could have been a halfway house.... More

Staff was rude. The hotel clerk talked to me like I was stupid. When she was the one who didn't make sence. I paid for my room through yahoo travel. When I checked out, it was 6:30am in the morning. I asked for a receipt. The front desk person couldn't get the printer to work. I asked what my total... More

It fills up because of it's price, and you are never sure WHAT kind of people are going to be... More

I was actually recommended to stay here by my aunt who is a penny pincher, to say the least, but she said her room was really nice, newly redone and a great value….we did not get that same room by any means. In fact, I can't imagine it was even the same motel. We were down in Apopka, FL the... More

Worried about staying here, but it wasn't bad. Small fixes would make it better. Some rustoleum on the ceiling plate in bath, drape pins on window facing out, etc. A drape pin had been replaced with a paper clip. One of the towels and the bath mat were clean but damp. Bed worried me, but was clean and comfortable. Breakfast... More
