We made a reservation months ago as we are participating in the 70.3 Ironman in Haines City. They charged our credit card and told us we are all set. We called to confirm and they said they are sold out and that ownership has changed so no reservations are being honored. Then they hung up on us. They spoke horrible... More

This motel is now housing the homeless. Homeless advocate Sean Cononie is closing down the “Homeless Voice Shelter” on North Federal Highway in Hollywood. The city paid Cononie nearly $5 million for his property and made him promise that he won’t return to purchase another property in the city. Now everyone’s heading to Haines City, minutes from Disney World. “It’s... More

The room was huge compared to other hotels. Clean but was oldschool. You can tell that people that stay here are regulars and seemed like their was some drug dealing going on. When I first arrived at the office their was a lady sleeping in the lobby and the guy at the desk told me to be very quiet because... More

I had a local person check on this facility before I made the reservation - I was worried from all the terrible reviews. My husband and I were looking for a clean, comfortable room - no bugs - but with a fridge and micro since we were going to be there for a week. We didn't want to spend a... More

I don't know what other reviewers were expecting from a low-priced inn, but I found this place to be above my expectations. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable and the AC/heater worked just fine. True, the facilities are old but for a cheap place to spend the night it's more than decent.

Walking into two different rooms I was greeted by a smell so sickening that I had to leave immediately. I asked the management was there internet and they said that it was only working in one single room. Unbelievable.

Awful. I don't know how these people are able to stay in business. It's one of the cheaper places to stay in the area, yet I feel like I did not get half my money's worth.

I would recommend to keep driving. Hotel staff/owner was not pleasant. First room I killed 5 spiders. Meeting room had cockroaches and air conditioner quit working in the middle of the day. Pool was brown. Slept on top of bedding and kept light on.
