I never expect much from the lower end of the Choice brands, but this place was way above average. The rooms were recently redone. Pool area was great. Breakfast was Sara Lee carbs, but as expected. Great price. Very friendly. Only downside is when you stay at the low end of the price range you sometimes end up with frightening... More

This was a lovely hotel. We stayed here for a week. Great access to highway and a short distance to many restaurants. Very quite being so close to highway. The pool is extra huge and beautiful!

Needed a quick place to stay on my drive to Naples. Desk clerk very polite and helpful. Room very clean. The bed was so comfy. Highly recommend for a place to lay your head. And if you're more hungry than the bagels, cereal and juice....there is always a McDonald's down the street :-)

I recently re-visited this motel and still have fantastic reviews about this place. The people at the front desk are most accomodating and friendly. The rooms are very nice and extremely quiet. I do recommend to request to ask for a room away from the interstate to insure a quiet night's sleep. SWEET DREAMS - AND A GREAT POOL

Stayed one night on our way to catch a cruise. Wasn't bad. Front desk staff was very nice and promptly changed our room when we indicated to room next to us had a barking dog. Room was clean. Breakfast was all packaged foods but still decent enough to get us started.

We stayed overnight on our way to the Florida Keys. I was hesitant because it has exterior doors instead of opening to a hallway. But the room was updated and clean and quiet. The room was small, but for the price, I was pleased. Breakfast was skimpy, so we ended up going to the Chick fil A nearby. But other... More

This is a wonderful place to stay with the exception of two items that would make this hotel a 5 star for sure. The plus features are cleanliness, friendliness of the staff and housekeepers, the easy on easy off from I-75, the cleanliness of the pool and grounds (they even have a gazebo with a porch swing inside), and the...

First off let me say I stayed here during what locals call "love bug season" the bugs were horrendous. They were even in my room! The front desk clerk was accommodating and did some pest control and even swept and gave me a small discount for my inconvenience. There is a nice pool and it is a very quiet place.... More

Very old, motel style rooms with doors opening to parking lot. Everything was outdated and needed to be replaced...beds were very uncomfortable, carpet was worn, paint was dirty.
