Had a decent stay and liked the hotel, but can't recommend. We inadvertently left a HEPA filter on a night stand and called back a few hours after checkout to try to retrieve it. Incredibly, they claimed to be unable to find it or obtain it from cleaning staff. Wow. Seems pretty clear that someone jacked our filter. Kinda bummed... More

My husband and I stay at this hotel at least 3-4 times a year, for my husband's medical needs at Shands hospital. After my husband had his transplant at SHands, we stayed there for over a week.

This was just a quick getaway with our teens to see the museums and visit some springs. I am so happy we picked this hotel. It was quiet and our room overlooked a wooded area. The room had everything you need to cook meals, though we didn't do any cooking. We did use the dining table to play games and... More

I recently stayed here for a about a week when family member had surgery at Shands. Staff was friendly and rooms were clean and well appointed. They offer happy hour and some certain nights of the week but the food selections aren't as good as they were in the past IMO.

Exceptional Stay! Morgan, has outstanding customer service skills. I specifically asked for a room away from the highway, and she accomodated me with no questions asked. The rooms are very clean, with new furniture and fixtures. The social hour was fantastic. Plenty of food was available, with a very nice outdoor seating area. This will be my hotel of choice...

Only spent one night and one breakfast here. Breakfast was reasonably well serviced with fresh fruit, cottage cheese, and yogurt (see photos). HOWEVER, how can a guest feel good about a place with dirt & mold growing on the building, right outside my 4th floor window (see photos)!!! It makes you suspect the cleanliness elsewhere on property. Pricing is very... More
