The owner is the manager and is a nice person who is helpful and the area is just around the corner from town which is nice. The place itself is extremely dated and basic would be a very polite way of putting it. Don't expect too much.

The room was average, however the motel is on the main hwy which runs north/South and was quite noise'y and... More

I had a quick stay here before leaving for the Bahamas. The Manager was nice and waited a bit for us to get there because our flight got pushed back. The place is clean but older. the shower is a little small but if you are looking for a clean bed that you are just going to spend a few... More

It's exactly as everyone else has described it: old buildings, spotlessly clean, noisy location on the highway. If you just want a cheap place to drop your stuff, sleep, clean up, and you can live with a lot of ambient noise, this is a great location. The bed and pillows were comfortable, it had a small fridge and coffee maker,... More

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.
