Although the staff was perfectly nice, the room is not pleasant, it smelled, the air conditioner was not effective and overall it was just surface clean-- bathroom was full of rust stains. There were several younger adults up at all hours roaming outside, going in and out of rooms and making a lot of noise---they were all partying in and... More

This hotel may have seen better days...but they're gone now. Lobby smelled like an ashtray, threadbare sheets...no exhaust fan in the bathroom. ...coffee pot but no coffee in the room....cable reception reminded me of the old rabbit ears days. Every time we used the bathroom, the door stuck n someone repeatedly had to open from the outside. An old...I'm using... More

For the Price this Motel was fine. Needs an upgrade but for $61.00 for a family of 4 traveling it was worth it. Typical breakfast fare. Plenty of places to eat in the area. There is a pool that looked clean did not use because of thunderstorms, Probably would stop again because of the value.

Room smelled moldy. Front desk supplied air freshener upon request. Did not feel like the room was a good value. Other motels in area cheaper and cleaner. Would not stay at this motel again. Breakfast bar was okay, dry cereal,pastry, and toast. Best part of stay was employees.

Booked a room for a night's rest traveling South on 95. Wrong choice. Would not recommend to anyone. Sign in the lobby states "We will not rent to you if you live within 50 miles." Huh? Lots of trucks on parking lot. I thought that might be a good sign...cheap but clean. Wrong!!! Dead palmetto bug in middle of rug... More

I've stayed at this Whitten previously, and they have done a LOT of upgrading. It is on its way to becoming a very suitable place to stay! The staff is friendly and helpful, and the amenities - FOR THE PRICE - are terrific. Microwave, mini-fridge, nice pool, lovely lounge. Would like to see a little more selection for the continental...

Travelling from NJ to Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Needed to rest for the night and this place is cheap ($55.00). Needs updating. But......I would go stay again if it was only for 1 night and needed a cheap place to stay while travelling I-95. Woman at check-in was wonderful, though. p.s., If you value your life, DO NOT eat at the... More
