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

First of all, let me say this is the 2nd time I've stayed in this motel....and only did so again because I am an art vendor attending the Apopka Art Festival, and this was the cheapest motel in the area. 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

Check-in went smoothly; desk clerk (maybe the owner/manager?) was polite. This property seems to be frequented by contractors/laborers temporarily working in the town. Room was typical small motel feel; no frills, but a decent place to sleep for the night. Breakfast was the low point of our stay. Basically cheap brand snack cakes.

I stayed here for my vacation time of 2 weeks. The room was nice and clean. The staff is friendly, helpful and quick to take care of any needs you may have. The hotel is quiet and a little out of the way but has easy access to shopping and restaurants.

My family of 5 stayed here for a Saturday night in early May. The hotel is dated, but the room was clean. We all slept fine. The price was great. We booked through hotels dot com, but could have saved more by booking direct.
