When I booked the room, I was looking for a good price close to the airport with free shuttle. The lobby closes and doesn't open early enough for our flight, so the shuttle was out. We had to take an Uber so we could get to the airport on time. The reviews talk about updated rooms, but they must have... More

Booked this hotel because of the pool and the shuttle to the airport. When we got there, we were told it was too early to check in but we could leave our bags in a room off to the side. We put our bags in what looked to be an old abandoned party room. It was a bit filthy to... More

Great value! Great location on a tiny island surrounded by a beautiful lake. Our room was updated and clean with a great view. Beautiful walking paths stretch for miles along the lake. It is an older hotel so you do have some features that aren't as convenient like using a real key and no fan in the bathroom. The lobby... More

My husband, daughter and myself went to Sanford on Fathers Day weekend and were pleasantly surprised as the reviews seemed iffy however we had a recently renovated room on the ground floor looking at the pool and lake. The staff were very friendly and it was quiet throughout the night. Some of the outside rooms do look as though they... More

Great view and nice room. The late night manager went out of his way to find food and other services for us and other weary travelers. Hotel is not 100% updated so just be careful about asking for a nice room and you will be pleased. Great rate and our room was 30 yards from lake.

We only stayed here because of the good reviews we had read online, but our experience was nothing like the reviews we read. The motel was under renovation and we were in an old room. We didn't see any renovated rooms, so they may be better. The lock on the door was hard to lock and unlock. It operated with... More

A great location and beautiful view of the Lake. Plenty of parking and walkable distance to the old downtown of Sanford. The actual property looks run down and once I started walking up to my room I feared I had made a huge mistake. From the outside the curtains in the rooms look rotten and the hotel should probably replace... More

The entire hotel is shrouded in a cloud of bugs. If you are a mouth breather you get a free dinner. The rooms appear clean but they are infested with tiny black ants and after I left, my luggage and clothes were full of ants. I needed to fill the ice bucket with water and use it to get the...

For the price room was very clean, we enjoyed our stay, bathroom redone and clean, flat screen TV tile floor, close to and walking distant to downtown Sanford, nice restaurant and bars, would stay there a gain.

My husband and I stayed one night at Monroe's based on the reviews from Trip Advisor and now wish we'd stayed anywhere else. It's really hard to understand why people like this place. On the upside: the manager and check-in person were very friendly, it is on the water and is the closest hotel to Sanford airport. Since it shares... More
