This is a basic accommodation without a lot of bells & whistles, but the furniture was updated, the room had a/c and ceiling fan, a small fridge & coffee maker in the room and was SPOTLESSLY CLEAN! We wanted inexpensive lodging, getting in after midnight before catching a cruise ship about noon the next day. This was far and away... More

Very pleasantly surprised with this place. This would be my second stay in the past year and would do so in the future. First impression is keep on driving but the inside is much nicer than expected. The staff is very nice to deal with. If all you need is a clean room with a nice bed and a bathroom,... More

Stayed here overnight on our road trip. Check in and out was pretty simple, no hassles. Nice quiet part of town too. It was pretty handy having a fridge, especially in this Florida heat. Pretty good for it's price. Thanks!

If you care anything about the ambiance of a hotel, this place isn't for you. If you are looking for a clean and comfortable place to lay your head for the night at a great rate, then you've got the right place.

If you don't mind find some bugs in your room maybe this motel it's not so bad. But in my case i'm afraid of them. Bugs on the floor, cokroaches in the spoons, forks drawer, and lizards in the walls inside room. At first smell of the room was to bad like a closed place, I spent 3 weeks and... More

Stayed here with the wife for a week. No complaints. Nice quiet little set up. Good location in town and close to main attractions. Sort of reminded me of the older motels of 70s and 80s. Manager maintains security cameras and never had any problems. Good deal and price. I would stay here again in the future.

After reading many other reviews here of this motel, we were happy to book for an overnight. We had the same thoughts as others when we drove up to it - dodgy-looking area and iffy-looking motel. But don't let first impressions put you off. It's a little dated, has got a small 2-storey main building by the road, and a... More

We arrived here at 2 in the afternoon and found the motel nicely situated off a main road, Chuck, manager/owner greeted us in a very friendly way and showed us to our room which was in the main building on the second floor. Smallish room clean well equipped, with microwave and fridge. The room was quiet despite the closeness of... More

I stayed here for a week and loved it. The owner manages it and makes his customers feel like they're his personal guests. The rooms were quaint, Tommy-Bahamas style (authentically, not contrived). I stayed in the front section, 2nd floor (quainter, but smaller rooms) and the back (much larger but less quaint). The rooms come with refrigerators and microwaves, and... More
