Nothing fancy but ok for an overnight stop. There was no coffee maker or hairdryer in room, but there was a fridge. Room was clean. Not much in the way of breakfast, but they did have coffee in the lobby.

The ultimate rude front desk person was on in the evening shift. Having driven a long way and being tired, we weren't expecting much -- other than a clean room and comfortable bed. Coffee, however, would have been nice -- There was a pot in "breakfast" area with the dregs. We asked if we could make fresh coffee and were... More

We stayed here at an amazingly low rate through hotels.com on New Year's Eve. The owner was helpful, the room was large for our family of three and the cleanest of three (budget) places we stayed in Florida. And quiet for a good night's sleep before we went swimming with the manatees early in the morning!

PET FRIENDLY!!!!!!! minimal $11 extra charge (vs $50 per night we paid in Kissimmee 3 days later, with other motels demanding $100 or more). There was a convenient area for pet... More

Got a last minute Hotwire deal on this room. I was a little worried after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, but everything was just right. This is a nice 2 star motel. The check in lady was super and recommended a place for my family to eat dinner. Breakfast was nothing special, but your standard continental breakfast. Having a... More

we were going diving with the manatees and didnt want to drive for hours in the early AM so we decided to stay overnight. We got this hotel for the price. We arrived late and the gentleman was so gracious. He was from India so a tad difficult to understand at times but what a sweetie he was. I asked,... More

I did not mind algae in the pool. I did not mind ceiling falling while I was in shower. I did not mind the noise. I did not mind the so called breakfast consisting only of sweet rolls/coffee/juice. I did mind having my pet deposit stolen, paid by cash and no where to be found upon check out. Clerk admitted... More

Basic motel at the side of a busy road. We wanted somewhere cheap as were getting up early to go swim with manatees. It was clean, spacious, comfortable and actually very quiet. Can't comment on the breakfast as we didn't have it. There were some wicked biting flies around the pool - make sure you have insect repellent.
