Ok...let me start by Ain before I do anything I start Google reviews first. Well this Google review was absolutely incorrect. Upon arrival I requested to see a room before checking in the receptionist gave me a room key and allowed me to look at the room. I loved it on top of all that you have a full breakfast!!... More

Checked in from NYC. The staff was okay, but the rooms are old, with worn carpet, stained drapes that hardly close, spider webs on the ceiling, the sink and tub seems to be falling apart, loud truck engines overnight, panhandler approached my car (very scary), loud, beer drinking construction workers overnight, and not to mention streetwalkers in the area.

I have never left a review before but felt compelled to do so on this place. The room was so dirty I didn't want to touch anything. The furniture was old and had stains on it. My drapes didn't close completely and this was a ground floor room. The front desk receptionist was very nice. The housekeeping people were very... More

Best motel I've ever stayed in. The food was AMAZING. everyone was super extremely nice. The rooms were clean, beds were comfy, and service was five star. The pool is always open, lit heated saltwater and totally clean. I can't say enough about how great this is. Rate is very low also.

We drove through the night and finally got very tired around 5:30 AM. We called a few places to see if they had late check-out, thinking we’d check in around 6 AM and check out around 2 or 3 PM. Most places either didn’t allow it, or charged extra (or were too expensive to begin with for our budget). We... More

Our kids started pitching monster fits after being in the car too long. We were driving from DC to Florida and everybody had just had it. Our dog was with us so our options were severely limited. The Thunderbird said "ok," so Thunderbird it was. Overall, I can't complain. Everything was clean, if not shabby. The staff gets five stars.... More
