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

This is the best hotel, very clean, very quite, the staff is absolutely wonderful and very pleasant. I would recommend this hotel. If you want a reasonable rate with great hospitality go here. Me and my family stayed for four nights with our dog, yes they are pet friendly, I could not have stayed at a better place

This hotel was like a DIAMOND in the ruff. Although it was off the beaten path the VIEW and the BEDS by far make up for it. The rooms are very clean smell good and the one I was in had 2 Queen size beds, cable TV, which had plenty of channels and variety to satisfy everyone's taste, a coffee... More

I loved staying at this quaint hotel in the heart of downtown Sanford. My room was clean, fresh, comfortable, and came with extras like free bottled water, fridge, microwave, etc. Plus, a fabulous view of lovely Lake Monroe! The grounds were beautifully manicured and offered a gorgeous pool, shuffleboard court, plus benches and tables for dining or just enjoying the... More

The staff was very gracious and professional. The lakeside location is great and has stunning sunrise and sunset views. Our room was very clean with a comfortable bed and free wi-fi. This property is a great value and included a free shuttle ride to the airport. The next time I'm in Sanford I will stay at Monroe's. If you like... More

Stayed here February 2015. Was under renovations but in a beautiful location and a clean room. But forgot to pick up my 80 year old grandmother at 5 o'clock in the morning. Front desk is closed, no help there. She almost missed her flight, but for some good Samaritans that drove her to the airport. Just a tip to remember... More

This is a nice hotel near the Sanford airport. The rooms by the pool are nicer than others, I'm told. The lake is beautiful with a walkway and benches. Within walking distance is the downtown area and they had a street festival going on the night we were there. You can also leave your car there and they will take... More

The staff was constantly walking outside the rooms talking loudly with no regard for the customers comfort. I could hear every door slam and every neighbors conversation. Apparently there is little insulation to buffer the noise.
