On our way to the everglades, Called ahead to reserve 15 min prior to arriving. Asked for senior rates and was quoted that, but friendly front desk clerk gave unsolicited advice that if I was a FL resident, which we are, that the rate would be $5/night cheaper. Yippee! Location was easy to find using our nav system and we got there around 7pm. Parking was ample and free. There is a quaint fountain in front of the hotel which we thought was photogenic. Check-in was easy, fast, and very friendly. We were offered a room on the first floor of the 3 story hotel. Very cordial chat with desk manager about the area, our plans, and a good restaurant nearby (Cuban restaurant Casavanna is within walking distance and highly recommended).
Cookies were available as usual, and as told when we first called, fruit can be had if you ask for, which we did.
Room was clean and well maintained, with all the normal amenities and furniture, comfortable but not large. The free hot breakfast had the typical pre-patty eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal selection and breads. Gotta say the juice from the juice machine really sucked and the coffee was no much better. The seating area was packed at 8am with only two or thee folks occupying seating for six. A few more smaller tables might have helped.
Checkout was also friendly, fast and efficient. There is a large Kohls department store next to the hotel with many restaurants and good shopping nearby. Overall good experience!
