A little ways off the highway but easy to find with your gps. Friendly and helpful staff, even for meetings. Bar and restaurant in hotel and very adequate. Other food is mainly on other side of I75. I will stay here again

I stayed here over night and loved it. The hotel is located right near the highway (75) and surrounded by a variety of shopping and restaurants. The hotel is kinda nestled away, but worth finding. It is very clean and neat and the staff (front desk & breakfast server) provided exceptional customer service. I loved my room, it was a... More

The staff was very friendly and the breakfast staff very hospitable. It's an okay place for a need, but I wouldn't recommend it for a family trip. Could be neater and cleaner. And NO FOX NEWS CHANNEL! Bathroom clean but not bright. Beds hard.

Very strange location, in the middle of an empty strip mall. Sketchy motel next door. Not near any restaurants. That said, it is clean and friendly. I would not leave anything in the car. It is $20 less than comparable hotels in area.

My wife, two grand-daughters and I stayed here overnight heading back home from Disney. It appears that this is an old hotel that they have been "refreshing" with minor repairs and paint. Easy to get to off I-75, beds were comfortable and the breakfast was hot and well stocked. Nothing special, but nothing specifically wrong.

First, the good news: The hotel is convenient to I-75, is clean, and is staffed by helpful, friendly people. The hotel is older, and while it has been fairly well-maintained, its age is showing. It is located in an abandoned strip mall, and seems shoe-horned into the space. Felt a bit sketchy at night. Our room was quite clean, and... More

Older building in an abandoned strip mall. Parking situation was a pain. Check in was quick, but not welcoming or personable. Rooms were clean enough, but furniture is worn and needs replacing.

The location setting should be the first sign to not stop here. The parking lot and front entry is dark and dirty. It matches the inside when you walk in and are at the reservation desk. The clerk was friendly. Nothing and no where was clean from the elevator to the room. This place was not worth the rate charged.
