The owner is renovating rooms in the west building and I stayed in one over the thanksgiving holiday. If the bathroom had been finished I would have given it a three start rating. New HVAC, new tile floors throughout, and new fixtures. Same 20 year old TV but I do not go down to watch TV. Renovation of bathroom had... More

I’m reading a book form Elizabeth B. Brown who wrote: “. . . the company ages. Focus shifts from serving a customer base and developing product quality, to profit and benefits.” This ties in to what I always say which is, as consumers we vote with our dollars. Whether we know it or not our votes count. These votes tell... More

It is being renovated, but that said the clientele is less than admirable. It is in a lower level neighborhood. I have friends stayed there and said they had an ok night. The druggies, sex offenders etc have been moved out. It is an in expensive clean place to stay. It is a short walk to the down town area... More

This is an update of my previous post called Good Bargain. The current owners have not completed the update of the HVAC systems so some rooms are more comfortable than others. Since my trip down in December 2012, current trip April 2013, they have increased the price for a pet by $5.00 a night so my stay now cost $55... More

We needed a place to stay for 2 nights while visiting my new extended family. The online pictures showed a renovated room with a decent bathroom, mini fridge and microwave. When we arrived, there was no one there at the office to check us in. The "office" reminded me of the padlocked area in front of a pawn shop with... More

Our typical stays are at Holiday Inn Suites, Hamption Inns or Comfort Suites, however since we have much travelling planned and we were not staying more than 2 nights we chose a smaller motel. Older motel with clean carpet, bathroom and beds. The building we stayed in was a concrete building. The bathroom tile is clean but older. Flat screen... More

The current owners have painted inside and out and upgraded the HVAC system in each room. I have family in area and stayed here off and on over several years and with several owners. I am a senior citizen on a limited budget and I like the price. My dog stays with me and she says it is ok. It... More

My husband and I stayed here when we visited the Lake Wales area and were not impressed! The area is sketchy and a man knocked on our door asking for money to feed his dog though the animal was nowhere to be found. The room itself didn't even have a phone in it. Will not stay here again!

First, this property is not "English owned" as claimed on their out of date website. The owner is actually a nice lady from Haiti. The motel is located near a busy highway overpass and there is often vehicle noise. The A/C fan can be left on which provides "white" noise to help block out that of the traffic. The area... More
