We checked in Friday morning (no extra charge for a noon checkin) and left Monday. The room was clean, the staff were friendly, the pool was wonderful, and there was a convenient store and a restaurant right beside the motel. The bed was comfortable, the air conditioner worked well, and I did not hear neighbors the entire time I was... More

Wasn't sure what to expect, last minute we decided to spend the night. Check in was smooth and friendly and the woman who checked us in had a fun sense of humor! I REALLY appreciated the clean rooms, very cold AC and the lovely quiet room. I would definitely book again! Price was great, room was clean, and staff was... More

Nice place to stay at a good price! And they still have smoking rooms! God Bless The USA! Nice pool area and very nice staff. Easily accessed from main road. Would definately recommend! Close to several restaurants and grocery.

A group weekend outing tubing down the Rainbow River. Arrived @ park @ 9:00 to find it full. Was advised rear tire was separating. Spent day buying new tire. But on advise of staff found nice scenic roads for riding. Also a great tip for Very Good pizza. So, not a total disaster as the group who went to another... More

I have stayed here for the last two nights, and with my brother still in Citrus Memorial hospital, looks like I'll be here a while longer. I have never been in Florida before (came down from Alaska) and the whole situation has been quite an ordeal. But this hotel has been an oasis of peace and quiet, safe and super... More

WARNING: This review of Central Motel is not politically correct, but for now anyhow, it's still legal to express one's opinion on tripadvisor and in America. It's important to me that we patronize American citizen owned and operated business in our communities, and Central Motel appears to be just that. All of their employees are obviously legal citizens who do... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in June, 2014. The lady at the front desk was friendly and pleasant. Even though the room was a little dated, it was clean and very roomy for a motel room. The free Wi-Fi was okay, with some areas of the room with better reception than others. While we didn't do any swimming, the... More

Stayed for 2 very pleasant nights (June 22-23) as we were bike riding the Withlacochee Trail. Rooms were the cleanest my wife and I have ever encountered anywhere in years. Excellent king bed with frig, microwave and great flat screen HDTV with a great cable channel selection. Would highly recommend.

Stayed here this past April to visit family. The front office was accommodating and friendly. The rooms were very clean but also very dated. The few nights we stayed there were some partiers sitting in chairs outside our room smoking and drinking which for me and my sister was a little unsettling. No frills motel, just a clean place to...

The reservation process was very easy and the staff person on the telephone was great.......Unfortunately the two nights we stayed, 5/9/14 - 5/10/14, were horrible. There was some sort of all-night party happening outside that kept me and my daughter awake all night Friday night. We were scared to death. People kept rattling the door knob to our room, that...

tadkisson, Manager at Central Motel, responded to this review

I would like to apologize for your unpleasant experience at the motel. Unfortunately we had some rooms that were occupied by female workers that were in the area and the evening that you stayed at the motel was in fact the night they were packing and leaving. As you can read from the previous reviews we have a very quiet,... More
