Simple clean and safe place to stay while on a long road trip to southern Florida. The Motel looked old but it wa well maintained and very clean for a pet friendly place. This is not a resort just a good place for a good night sleep then get back on the road. Would recommend this for a night sleep.

My family and I stopped here for one night. The bathroom looks like they attempted to remodel it, then tried to cut costs by leaving the old tile in with the new. It also looks like they spilled mortar in the floor of the shower and just left it, so now the drain is only partially open. The room also... More

You wouldn't expect much from this place but don't judge a book by its cover. It's really nice inside their rooms. Our bed was nice comfortable. It had a nice flat screen TV. Only complaint we're that the pillows were a little small and not enough of them. Other than that my stay was great.

Thank you for the positive compliments. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed our newly installed flat screen televisions and bedding. We are an older facility, but our deluxe rooms are the newest rooms, built from the ground up, in Starke. All rooms were updated when the addition was built. Thanks again, and see you soon! More

The hotel is not new but it is clean and everything works. We had a very comfortable stay. Free WiFi, pizza hut across the street and a really friendly staff to interact with. I will definitely stay there again when I am going that way. No complaints whatsoever.

I was looking for an affordable place to stay while passing through the area, and came across this motel which was much more reasonably priced than staying in a larger city. The reviews were great, so thought I would give it a try. I do not think this motel lives up to the high reviews. The motel is right on... More

A clean tidy and well maintained establishment. We stayed the one night, just passing through. The staff were friendly and efficient. They had a nice pool area, we did not go in the pool, but did spend a pleasant hour there, chilling.
