If you did save any money by booking here, it might not be worth it. No pencil or shampoo or small things you might expect at a motel, no breakfast (even something small like cheap donuts). Fridge and microwave were nice and worked. Older TV also worked. Climate control worked. Room smelled musty, paint and wood flaking. General state of... More

We stopped in at this hotel minutes after being insulted and threatened at a different hotel in Lakeland, Florida and the front desk woman was very helpful, accommodating, and kind (which was a welcome change). She checked us in to a room within minutes at a very good rate for Spring Training in Lakeland, Florida. There are some maintenance and... More

I still can't believe I wasted a night of my life in this dump. I booked through a site so I was stuck staying for the night. The Hotel was a dump, and the room was a dump. For example the bathroom had a curtain covered with mold. The smoke alarm was broken.There was a TV that you can buy... More

We were duped by the current posted reviews! This is a "rent by the hour " place. The paint is coming off of the door above main entrance, a large stain was on the carpet in the lobby. We did not even use the shower! How about NO hair dryer in the room, in the year 2015? This place should... More

It was very clean and always service from staff no matter the.time or issue was taken care of with good response. Pool and laundry area was always clean and well maintained I stayed there for about 15weeks and didnt have any problems from staff or guests. Would recommend to any friends or fellow employees if mine.

I would definitely refer anyone looking for a warm friendly atmosphere and worry free stay to the best motel. I was really impressed with the staff and the peacefulness I also liked the pool always crystal clear and exceptionally well maintained. Location is close to shopping Centers and many nice restaurants actually many within walking distance.

I was wondering what we were getting into when we pulled up and the clerk spoke to me thru a "bank teller window." After being let inside, I felt a little more at ease. The clerk was friendly enough and some of the other guests were kind of noisy, but it was late and we felt it was our best... More

"best" Motel is a severe understatement for a property that is managed like an exclusive 6 star hotel. With unparalleled service and management, this hotel offers a wide range of services. The staff is highly respectful and very friendly. I love to stay here and don't mind their renovated rooms. I could hardly believe the "under construction" sign as I... More
