We have been staying here for years when we visit Florida and the place is still great. Heated pool is nice, good free breakfast, they have laundry put-put golf, even a car wash. The personnel are great.

Another enjoyable stay. What makes staying here so nice is the pleasantness and kindness of the staff. For example, one of the housekeepers remembered me from the last visit and an inquiry regarding a restaurant and asked if we had gone and how it was. The front desk is accommodating to any special requests and overall, all staff are very... More

This place was dirty, it was a non smoking room and there were burn marks on the toilet and the ice bucket. The bathtub had a crack in it and was concealed by a sticker/mat covering it. there was a big stain on the floor and the floor needed vacuumed. Also, the lock on the door was bent.

Staff was great. The room was clean. Small but ok. Needs some updating. Strong odor from cleaning I would presume. It faces I75 and can be noisy! Jacked up the rates because of local activities. Great place if you travel with pet.

We stopped here because of some nice posted comments. It is an older hotel but nice. Our room was comfortable and clean. The front desk people were great!! I even received a phone call to welcome us and that they were looking forward to our stay. They also allow dogs which is a plus for us. Great value too!!

If you are looking for a no-frills stay you'll find this place conveniently situated. My room was clean but oddly decorated. Someone did about half a renovation and stopped. The noise from the highway is a potential issue - you can hear the roar of traffic from the rooms for sure. As many have said, the staff is impressive. Very... More
