This is an older property and we stayed here based on Expedia ratings of 4.5 out of 5. This hotel is a 3.5 at best. The room had such a strong smell when we walked in as if it was a smoking room they were trying to disguise. At least it had a window I could open to air out... More

We stayed here for an overnight on our way to Florida's east coast. First of all, it has very poor signage and difficult to locate coming off the interstate. The room we had was clean but needed some upgrades. Staff was ok, but not the friendliest. Breakfast was good with a nice selection. More than likely we would find another... More

Stayed here in route to Disney World as I had first done back in 2008. Service at check-in was fine and relatively efficient. When we attempted to enter our assigned room we found the security lock bolted from the inside. Upon return to the front desk, we were assured the room was vacant and a desk clerk first called the...

We have stayed at this location in Lake City a few times during our travels to and from Florida, and have been very satisfied every time. The staff is always friendly, rooms are comfortable and clean, and the breakfast is good. (Don't forget the complimentary cookies, too!) We will continue to stay here on future trips to Florida.
