Simply put, you're probably not going to find a better place anywhere near Inverness, Florida. The staff were just outstanding and the room was immaculate. Seriously clean! Add that to the easy walk to "Cinnamon Sticks Restaurant" on-site (see separate review), the reasonable rates, and you get a deal that's just plain hard to beat.

Just chanced upon this place when I needed a night's sleep - spent the next four days here. Charming staff, clean rooms, next door restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Convenient to the central Gulf coast - reasonably priced.

The room rate had me worried it was so low compared to some places I have stayed, but when I arrived for my two night stay I was pleasantly surprlsed! The room was large and clean, and very quiet. There is a very cozy feel to this place, not luxurious but very calming. If your traveling near inverness, Fl, you... More

My granddaughter and I just spent nine days at Central Motel. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay,friendly staff, clean rooms, our stay was awesome. If I could give them a ten it would be a twelve.

We stayed here for one night. Wish we stayed two, because there is lots to do in the area. Like swimming with manatees and kayaking rainbow river. The best of the this short stay was the staff. The first example is the consierge that notised we were loking at the bikes. He tols us the rates and routes. When he... More

I liked the location and ease to the trail (and bike storage) but I would prefer a motel with a bit more round the clock personnel. Rooms were tidy but the cleaning crew needs to look at the walls to clean up splatter etc.

Located directly on the Withlacoochee Rails To Trails - location gives direct access to the trail without driving. Very bike friendly. Central location on the trail makes a good day riding either the north or south arms of the trail. Cinnamon Sticks restaurant was extremely good. Staff at both restaurant and motel were very personable, friendly, and helpful. For just... More

We have visited this motel several times over the years and always enjoyed the clean, spacious rooms with microwave and fridge. Being older now we mind the steps and found that we were now on the second floor with no elevator. There was insufficient parking in our area near the pool and we had to wait for a car to... More

The room was better than expected, even included a small patio (room was a double Queen in the rear of the lot). Everything was rather new and the room was pretty spacious. The only disappointments were not being able to use long distance (a problem with their phone system) and a large loud family staying nearby. Wi-Fi worked well.

I really don't know where to start. The Central Motel is simply perfect. The rates are reasonable, the rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable, they are well maintained and the grounds are well kept, there is ample parking. The staff is very kind, friendly and helpful. I grew up in Inverness and return frequently and I'll always stay here.
