Hotel was clean & tidy, super quiet & conveniently located right off i75. But the best thing was the breakfast buffet with waffles, just freaking awesome & delicious. Plus hot tub & pool are open until midnight every night!

We stayed here overnight from Atlanta to West Palm Beach. The hotel was very conveniently located off I-75. Room was large and beds very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was full if many hot and cold choices. I would definitely stay again.

We stayed here for one night while on our way from Mobile to Clearwater. The hotel was super clean. The staff was wonderful, very helpful and went above and beyond to make their travelers feel welcome. The breakfast was pretty decent. (They had a waffle maker.)

We recently stayed here for one night on our way from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale. The property was clean and had a slight bleach smell, a good thing! The location is convenient, literally right off of I-75 and we had dinner right next door at Cracker Barrel which was very convient as well. After that, my two young daughters played... More

The hotel is always very clean, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. I definitely would recommend this hotel for an overnight or lengthy stay. My only complaint is the rates at this hotel are slightly higher than the Country Inn and Suites in Lake City or Ocala, both neighboring cities!

The front desk girls are very helpful and make the kids feel like kings. We were there for a 6U tball tournament in Chiefland. 11 kids and all the family. The hotel allowed us to use the breakfast area for dinner we had a pizza party one night, we did burgers and a movie the next night. The cookies are... More

This is such a great review! Thanks for mentioning your use of the breakfast room. It's not really something we advertise but it is available for use by all. Wether it's a pizza party or just a place to gather for conversation or a game of cards, we encourage all guests to utilize this space as needed. I'm glad you... More

We spent one night at this hotel. It was wonderful experience. We had 2 children with us. All the staff couldn't have been friendlier and helpful. The rooms were very nice. The breakfast was much better than others. We stay at Hampton's a lot and this breakfast was far better. I am glad we tried this hotel and will stay... More

Everything was even better than expected. We would not hesitate to stay at again! We stayed in the double queen room with pullout sofa. This was equivalent to 2 rooms combined with an extra tv. Breakfast was delicious with cold and hot selections includes in the price of room.
