The staff was excellent, friendly and accommodating, housekeeping was also very good. The rooms are spacious (1 bedroom suite) and the layout was great, very comfortable. My only complaint would be that the keg ran out on Tuesday and wasn't available on Wednesday, I didn't check on Thursday. The location is good, walking distance to FSU.

The rooms here are still well-maintained, and they have done some room renovations. It is conveniently located as well. The breakfast presentation was substantial and the staff is very pleasant. The evening food presentation is nice, but it seems that they should offer more of a finger food presentation to be more appealing to guests, rather than the salad and... More

We checked in on Thursday at 2:30 am and the young man at the desk was very cordial.We were very excited because the hotel had just been renovated.Clearly we were deceived.

Nice, clean hotel with very good size rooms for the money - some of the time. The prices in the area around the University get high during games, graduations, dorm move in dates, etc. I understand this is a case of supply and demand. After my second stay I asked about the rates for a stay during parent's weekend in... More

Thank you for the kind comments regarding your recent stay at our hotel. It is true; our location has limited onsite parking, one space per unit. There are many nearby choices for off-street or garage parking for additional vehicles. In fact for our arriving FSU students there is a very convenient FSU parking garage located ½ block to our north.... More

Very pleasant stay. Stayed her for nephews graduation. We stayed in beautiful, clean room complete with fridge, stove and dishwasher. Pool and hot tub. Breakfast free and one night had complimentary comfort food (that night chili and nachos with all the fixings) and beer and wine.Would definitely stay again

Stayed here last night with my kids to do a tour of FSU. Good location, conveniently situated between the capitol and the university, with both easily within walking distance.
