I have been traveling for about a month now and this is by far the best bang for my buck that I've encountered, the staff was extremely friendly, from the housekeeper to the front desk, the room was extremely clean and well equipped. It was also one of the cheapest places in the area! Staying here should be a no... More

We booked a non-smoking room, however the room smelled so awful of smoke that we left the next day. Otherwise, the room was OK, the bed and bathroom seemed clean, but the table beside the bed was not. The women that welcomed us was nice, however the guy the next day was a disaster. We had to ask for cups... More

My friend and I stayed for 2 nights. This was the worst place I have ever stayed during my travels. There was hair on the sheets when we pulled the blankets back. Hair all over the faucet and these didn't look like hair from the top of your head. The hallways look like they had not been vacuumed in I... More

The staff including the manager was evenly rude! They spoke about their "regular" customers business in front of us. They yelled at customers over the phone and proceeded to talk about them after they hung up. This place is run down. We never made it to our room because some how we were booked on a smoking room for 3... More

Stayed here a few years ago and it is a pretty nice and cheap hotel. It was nice for one night and being on a budget. Probably would stay there again for a nice trip to get away from home. Staff was pretty nice too!

My friend & I stop there to enjoy the beach before we reach our final destination which was DeFuniak Springs . We choose this hotel thinking that , what we saw online was "accurate " , totally wrong ( we guess they took the pictures righ after the construction was finished ) The lobby was the only clean area ....

First of all let me say that this hotel is between the town and the beaches. Both rooms were relaxing and refreshing to come back to at the end of the day. Continental breakfast was quaint but enjoyable. My dad 's room was handicapped accessible and he was very pleased with it. Prices were good and the staff were pleasant... More

Our travel dates ( 2 nights, fri-sun) just so happened to fall on the last weekend of spring break so this was the best choice for us since pickings were few. Overall we saved a nice amount of money and were only 10-15 mins from the sites and attractions. The hotel was decent. The hallway carpets were stained but the... More

My bf and I looked up reviews before we booked this place planning a last minute trip. And everyone were saying don't go here avoid this place etc. and we decided to try our luck. And it was not good and exactly what ppl were saying in their reviews. If you're looking for a budget hotel this is it but... More

They had hidden fees that were not explained over the phone. The managers as well as the front desk people were rude and had nasty attitudes. The hallways smelled like cigarettes. The smell hits you right when u walk in your room rather u had a smoking room or not. They had no extra pillows, covers, towel, etc. They tried... More
