We were only staying one night and just wanted something cheap. This definitely qualified as that. It was half the price of next door but you get what you pay for. Room quality was below average. The carpet was dirty. The walls were overdue for a proper spackle and paint job. Some of the lights didn't work. The bedspreads are... More

This motel looked nice but was old and run down and it was expensive! The non smoking room we got was filled with smoke (I'm asthmatic so that didn't work!) The girl said there were no King sized beds available when I asked and then all of a sudden when we went back to the office to complain about the... More

Much like many others, we stayed because it was late and all the other hotels were booked. BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER! I wish I would have taken pictures. The room stunk sooooo bad. The chairs, tables, and pretty much any surface was covered with dirt. The toilet seat was stained, and cracked. There were wires hanging from the bathroom ceiling that... More

We were very tired from driving all day and were desperate to find a place for the night. The Holiday Inn Express was booked and we were about to continue to drive but saw this place. We made the mistake of not moving on. The good thing about the room was that it had outlets to plug in our electronics.... More

Stopped at the Garden Inn and Suites in Pensacola. I was a little concerned at first, it certainly did not look very well kept, however, i was pleasently surprised. While the rooms were average, with older to average appointments, my room was quite clean, and I found it reasonably comfortable. Now I wouldnt stay here anymore than a day, if... More

My family and I traveled from Alabama for a family wedding for the weekend. We had 4 rooms. Don't be fooled by the room they show you. Some of our rooms did not have hot water. I called front desk and the guy told me it takes time to get hot. Well the next morning, the water was still cold.... More

We were driving from Austin Texas, the room was a non-smoking room that STUNK of mildew. The bathroom , although small, had paint cracking on the ceiling, there was stains of black on the shower curtail as if someone dyed their hair in it. The breakfast was stale- I had cereal that milk could not get soggy, and my husband... More

This place has done nothing but go downhill. Cracks in the rooms, carpet is disgusting. NOT owned by anyone that cares. At least when it was under Rodeway years ago, they made the owners keep it up but now, no one cares. DON'T stay here, coupon or not...you will regret it. Go to Microtel or one of the many other...

We went to several nearby hotels but none would accept a dog...this place is slightly better than a truck stop...but it was the only place that would accept a dog...when I asked if I could see the room the desk clerk responded, "No refunds after twenty minutes."...Just say no.

Stopped on our way to Orlando for the night... The lack of cars in the parking lot should have been a tip off. Rooms smelled bad - pets, smoke, urine, or worse. Had to change first room immediately; the second room wasn't much better. Decided since we were only looking to sleep for a few hours, we'd make the best... More
