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.

We love Central Motel!!! The manager and staff are so very helpful with any need you have. The Withlacoochee Trail sits right behind the property. The rooms are very clean and fresh. The beds are comfortable and the price is right. There is no need to look any further.

We came to Inverness specifically to ride the Withlacoochee trail. We stayed at Central Motel 2 nights in the new building. Our room had a private balcony that looked out over the trail. Clean and comfortable. The room had a small fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and flat screen TV. And free, reliable wifi. Staff were professional and friendly. They have... More

I love the central motel and appreciate the helpful staff and the new updated rooms. For years we stayed on the second floor before steps became a concern for us but now we always get a pool level room and a newly renovated one to boot. The prices are fair and the surrounding area has many nice outdoor things to... More

We stayed here one night. It is right off the paved bike trail. If you cannot climb stairs this place is not for you. The place was clean and beds were comfortable. The kitchen was kind of combined with the bathroom area which made it interesting. The double bed room was small.
