I travel a lot and stay in a lot of hotels. In the last year this was the first hotel that the manager (Cedric) took care of any complaints immediately. Nothing in life is perfect including hotels but this manager made it his duty to make it as close to perfect as possible. A definate great place to stay.

Lucky for me the person checking in at the same time received good information about the facilities, internet, & breakfast. The man that checked me in didn't bother to give me anything more than the key cards. The room was acceptable. At breakfast the tables weren't cleaned.

This is not the Marriott, however the prices are always reasonable and the rooms are clean. We drive frequently from Miami to Tallahassee and usually stay here for a few hours of sleep, a shower, and a quick breakfast. They have plenty of pet friendly rooms on the 1st floor and green areas for potty breaks. Pet fee per night... More

Great check in process, courteous staff, clean and large room. I opted for a stay here in part for the in room microwave and refrigerator as I had an early morning triathlon and wanted a 4 AM breakfast. I came back for the hotel breakfast later, it was pleasant but a bit crowded. I will return here next year.
