We stayed here as a stop off from Atlanta to Florida on our road trip of East Coast USA 2015. On arrival the reception staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms are slightly dated and could do with a refurb and update compared to many other hotels, however they were clean and comfortable. The pool area was a was... More

Our maiden voyage down the Ichetucknee River was a blast because we had a great night sleep. Going tubing is not a day trip for us so we decided to drive to Lake City, spend the night, tube the Ichetucknee River, and drive home. I did my research and found that this hotel was the best value for a great... More

Beautiful place to stay. Extremely clean and well taken care of. The breakfast is like a buffet with plenty of breakfast oprions. Very affordable. We had a problem with the shower handle and the water could not shut off. They moved us to an upgraded suite at no charge.

We stayed here for 1 night on our way to Georgia. The room was fine quite big and clean. It was all let down when we went down for breakfast. The dining area was far too small for the size of the hotel. There were only a couple of vacant table and they were filthy dirty. There was hardly any... More

This hotel is on a side road right near a busy interstate exchange. The shared road that goes to it has nothing to write home about, including package liquor, older property being renovated, etc. Why Lake City is okay with the condition of the interstate right there with various construction detritus laying around is beyond me. Out our window the... More

We didn't arrive until midnight, both rooms (suites) were very clean. Comfortable beds, nice bedding and pillows. No complaints about the room at all. Felt safe, hotel is on I-75 on a well populated exit. Complimentary break was ok... Overall, I would stay again. :)

Unplanned stopover, just too tired to drive on. Pleasantly surprised. Had called other hotels rated higher on list, $40-50 more a night. Decided to stay here, check in took a little longer than usual, but otherwise everything was perfect. Clean room, comfy bed and pillows, nice bathroom, good breakfast and variety, quick check out. Would stay again.

Rooms were clean and good size, beds were comfortable, breakfast was great. Another nice benefit with the free breakfast was that it went until 10:30 instead of 9:30 like other hotels with free breakfast.
