I'm not a fan of motels or cheap ones at that... But this little place was a nugget. :). Clean and well maintained. I will definitely stay there again. The breakfast was not really a breakfast... Coffee, juice and some donuts. But that's ok... The money I saved choosing that place was not than enough to buy a decent breakfast... More

My husband and I stayed overnight here during a weekend bike trip from the beginning of the Silver Comet Trail. After 90 miles, this comfortable and friendly hotel was a welcome site. The front desk staff was very friendly, making sure we knew the best way to get our bike to the room, the bed was very comfortable and the... More

They apparently aren't up to date with computer systems but rooms aren't bad, it is a bit of a drive off the interstate. A little over priced for what we planned but so is any other hotel around the area for the races. Staff is very friendly and generous.

We stayed here for 3 nights for Talladega NASCAR race. The room was decently clean. Maid service did a good job each day. Toilet was terrible:( Most uncomfortable bed I've slept on in years. The room served its purpose though. Decent price. Good customer service. Close to everything we needed. I wouldn't not stay here but hope I don't have... More

I stayed here for several nights during a visit to JSU. From the staff to the rooms, this is an excellent hotel. The location is great, large rooms, and great continental breakfast. I will definitely stay here during future trips.

I usually visit Jacksonville once a month and instead of bunking with someone in the area, I get a room here because of the convenience to me ...I like my space and my peace and quiet. Usually when I stay here, I don't have a problem with the room; however, this time I was laying down for my nap and... More

The owner of this hotel is one of the rudest people I've ever met. The hotel staff are very nice and friendly but the owner is not. He really needs to take lessons from his staff.

We arrived an hour early and was able to check in. We had a wonderful greeting from great staff. Our room was ready. It was clean, smelled good and in nice shape. We did not swim but the pool looked nice. The ice machine and drink machine worked fine and were located close by. We were visiting the Jacksonvile University... More

I'm glad I stayed here. After taxes paid $50 for a clean second floor, non-smoking room with kingsize bed, microwave, and fridge but no coffee pot. The AC was not noisy and did not cut off between cycles (I like that). Wi-fi was available but I did not use it. Breakfast was basic (juice, coffe, pastries,cereal, milk) but Wal-mart is... More

I stopped by to cancel reservations at 4:00 pm on day of reservation because of change in family plans. The clerk indicated that I could cancel. The manager came in and rudely stated that I could not cancel and then left the room. My credit card was charged full price for 3 rooms. I sent a letter to the management... More
