I will admit, I was hesitant on booking this hotel based upon some of the reviews. I couldn't have been happier with our stay! I saw reviews about the cleanliness, and completely disagree with them all! I originally chose this hotel because they were reasonable with the price of me bringing my pets. My pets are my family, and anyone... More

This was a very clean motel with a friendly staff. We would stay here again. Had very nice beds and we had a restful sleep. This was one of the favorite motels we stayed at on our vacation. Breakfast was exceptionally good.

Although it's taken me several weeks to write this review, I made some notes on my way home to ensure that I would not forget the most important items: We stayed for 3 nights. Family of 4. (our 2 boys ages:17 and 12) The hotel is very dated and could use a face-lift. However, I found that the entire area... More

I was very surprised that the rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and we had decent accommodations. The property grounds were in good shape and the building was maintained. It was very close proximity to the Manatee tours we went on as well.

I have stayed at this motel on previous occasions and was completely satisfied. I plan on staying again in the future. I prefer to stay in areas where there is a lack of crowds. Also this motel charges a reasonable pet fee. Never could understand why most motels charge excessive fees for pets. My dog (An Akita) is absolutely cleaner... More

I could not recommend this facility in it's present state to anyone at even half the price. Every thing appears to be old and worn out. The management it seems is more interested in milking out the profit with out a view to the future. The public will stop coming if the product is not greatly improved.
