Stayed the night last night. It was our second trip here(this time no one was called away.) Clean, cozy, out of the way. Definitely worth the drive, love it here. We will be back. :) The sunset last night was beautiful.

My husband and I stayed here a week while visiting his family in St. Cloud. It is clean, comfortable, friendly and offers an excellent hot breakfast in the cafe! The location is awesome: on a lake, away from city (and barred windows on buildings that I saw). Jodi waited on us and sang us songs she had composed, and played... More

Nice family owned older motel that has been updated. Owner and his family are very friendly. Directly on the lake with its own screened in patio, boat ramp and dock. Although the building is the older block style, the rooms are nice sized and have been redone, fresh paint, flat screen tv, free wi fi, kichenette with refrigerator, microwave and... More

Spent the morning in the mini suite before being called away there before being called away. Quaint and wonderful setting. Right on the lake. Clean rooms. Our only complaint was how tiny the shower was.

We broke down on our way south to the keys on the Florida Turnpike. What a great way to start a vacation! We got towed to the Ford dealer in St. Cloud and then had to find a room. Went on trip advisor and found this place.turned out to be awesome! Pros: clean room, great TV, great selection of channels,... More

Some friends and I just stayed for a night at this classically quaint hotel. It's located right on the edge of Alligator Lake, and there are plenty of picturesque docks, and of course a spectacular water view. Adam and his family were very accommodating, and his daughter even serenaded us with her violin at breakfast! It's not a fancy place,... More

We always stay in room #4 atleast once a month. The beds are very comfortable and the room is always clean. Adam, the owner, and his family are wonderful, very pleasant people! The restaurant has great food. Sausage, eggs and peppers are our favorite for breakfast:) We bring our dog and our bikes and always have a wonderful time! The... More

We stayed here one night due to an evening wedding. Thought it would be wise instead of driving back to Orlando at night. I'm sorry to say we should have driven the 50 minutes home. This is a really old building & area. I had heard it described as old & quaint. Old yes-quaint no. The people managing it were... More

The charge is per room. Three of us stayed in a room with 2 double beds, which was very economical. Although the furniture in the room is a bit dated, all the appliances and furniture are still in good working condition. The owner/operator is very friendly and easy-going. They did everything we asked to make our stay an enjoyable experience.... More

Stayed here "accidentally" after getting stranded on the road and then I didn't want to leave. Many good things to say about this place, but I have to start with the hospitality of the owner/manager. Adam & his wife checked to make sure we were comfortable, helped us with our cargo trailer, & were generally friendly & helpful without being... More
