The room stunk. Was dirty. Old. In need of new paint carpet and linens. Bath tub was disgusting. The employee at check in was rude. Not willing to help. Not willing to give more than a one word response DO NOT STAY HERE EVER!!!

The GuestHouse Inn is a pleasant and enjoyable facility, and we have no major criticisms of our experience as guests there. Check-in and check-out were quick and easy, the staff was generally enjoyable and competent, and the room was just fine. Minor issues included an electronic door key that stopped working after the first day, useless Wi-Fi, a remarkable and... More

For lack of anything else, my family and I reserved a room at the Guest House. The best thing I can say is that the wifi was strong and the carpet was new, everything else was weak and worn. That, however, is not my biggest problem with the Guest House; the fact that upon check in, they scanned both my... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Motel was clean, staff very helpful. Staff was very nice needed a band aid for a blister they gave me some until I could get to a drug store. Pool very nice. Nice lake to sit by and watch the birds or alligators. Close to Highways and outlet shopping. Would use this motel again and recommend... More

This was once a nice motel, not so now. It was uncomfortably unclean- microwave dirty, hair on bathroom floor. Breakfast was just cereal and breads. It is convenient to 75 . This is not an inexpensive place so look for some place else.

Hotel close to Terra Ceia. The motel is clean and the service was good. Breakfast in the morning is minimal, but ok. The bed was comfortable. There are outlets close by and numerous restaurants.The rooms face the parking lot and are noisy.

This is our second time at this hotel. First i want to say that you can not expect a Hilton for $62 a night. That was not what we were looking for. What we were looking for was a clean and quiet place to sleep. And we found it! Staff was very nice and helpful. Rooms were clean and quiet.... More
