An out of the way location offers good value, a pleasing atmosphere, and an excellent full breakfast included in price - although the breakfast room is woefully small. The young lady at front desk seemed extremely shy and totally lacked eye-contact, but the property more than makes-up for a few shortfalls, such as nothing in the area except fast food venues nearby. But being off the road also ensures little highway noise and thus restful sleep. Large, high-ceilinged lobby impresses as do the over-large rooms that seem perfect for long stays. The rooms feature full-size refrigerators, microwave, even a two-burner range and oven. Good lighting throughout, 36 inch HD flat-screen TV, fast becoming the standard everywhere. The principle reason for staying in the area is to visit Florida Southern College about 25 minutes away. The approx 2,500 student college is little-known outside the area, but features the world's largest single-site collection of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings - a must for Wright enthusiasts, and worth the considerable detour off I75. Guided tours are free with entry into several buildings to enjoy the Wright designed interiors. Excellent visitor center too. Of 18 buildings designed by the master, 12 were built, several during WW 2 by the students, all featuring connecting and covered esplanades. A massive water-domed fountain finished in 1948, also from Wright's fertile mind, suggests the domes often found on college campuses, except that this one is fluid.
