Our room had queen double beds, clean( I checked all covers and sheets ). The floors are nicely tiled and were clean ( Reminder- Florida sand/dirt will make your feet soot black if any bit is on a tile floor ) So with saying that no-ones socks turned black, so that was a good thing considering how quickly cleaned these...

Dirty gross near the train and felt like it was coming thru the building that's how close it was and vibrated the floors. Man at desk had 3 teeth. People staying there were suspect at best . Close to down town

As in other reviews the front desk clerk had the personality of a rock but was efficient and got it all right in the check-in process. It has been a long time since I have seen a hotel that has a manual check-in system without computers. Upon examining the room found it clean enough to stay in and the maid... More

After reading some of the reviews, I was apprehensive making the reservation. Photos didn't look that bad but you know how that can be deceiving. I needed a room for 8 days and that could get really pricey if I was staying at the average $120+ per night. I was rather impressed with the room, large, comfortable and clean. Although... More

New paint and lots of plants to landscape the outside make it beautiful. Mr. Patel was very friendly and helpful when we checked in. Golden Corral across the street was handy. AC unit started making a racket about 3 AM and made it hard to sleep the rest of the night. Really close to the Punta Gorda Airport, cheap and... More

Though the front desk clerk was less than happy to be there and made this known, they were amenable to offering a few dollars off my stay which I appreciated. However, once in the room, I noticed that the floors were really dirty. I was barefoot and within a few steps within the room my feet were black. I tried... More

I needed a basic motel for an extended stay last month. Even though this hotel hadn't been reviewed in over a year and the reviews were at best mediocre, I decided to give it a try. On driving up I got the sense of a 1970's or 80's motel (old fashioned two level motel with external walkways and room access).... More

We stayed here over the weekend for Saturday night. My daughter was play in a tournament in port Charlotte and had a hard time finding a place with availabilty. The motel was fair, the previous reviews about the desk clerk is correct. He was the strangest unfriendly clerk every. The room was straight out of the eighties but it had... More

Had to stay here when our flight was cancelled due to mechanical failure. All of us shared the horror stories from this motel while waiting for our flight. One woman said she did'nt even use the bathroom it was so dirty. Our room had cobwebs and the shower curtain and grout were moldy. We all related that we slept in... More

My wife and I stayed here Friday March 2, 2012. The clerk was kinda cranky at best. Once in the room things looked ok but the tv was fuzzy and the volume control was out of wack. Maybe new tv's would help. Once in the shower the noise from the water coming out was horrible. No trashcan in the room... More
