“Easy access on/off 275 makes easy stopover here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

We visited childhood memories I had in the Grenada Historic District; 1924, located on Coffeepot Bayou. Hotel was very clean, service friendly, Cracker Barrel next door. 3rd floor room facing 275 was quiet. My smartphone kept pushing $111 per night rates after we booked @ $120. That was confusing. We use AAA rates. So value was confusing.

We were in town for a family event and found the hotel a perfect location. The staff was friendly and the room very comfortable. The bed was comfy and hard and soft pillows were great. Our room had a microwave, fridge, iron and board which we used and appreciated. The breakfast was super, coffee offered was strong and regular. How can you beat that? We will stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room was close to elevator and we did not hear it. Location on third floor was quiet.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

I booked this hotel on Hotwire thinking that the location was downtown, but I was wrong. The location is north of downtown very close (Cracker Barrel close) to 275. The location ended up being just fine for us-a great middle point between the museum area and the beaches. Everything we wanted to do was a very short drive from the hotel.

The front desk and maintenance staff were all super friendly. I cannot complain about the service. Oh, and the rooms come with a mini fridge and microwave which is very convenient.

The first thing I noticed upon approaching our room(205) was the strong odor of disinfectant. It was even stronger in the room. So, either the place is clean or gives the impression that it is clean. The carpet is a brown color which can hide dirt well. The linens and bathroom were spotless. I don't know what they use to scrub the room, but if you have a sensitivity to these odors, you might have a problem.

The standard rooms are large, good for families. We took advantage of the free breakfast which included the standard bread and pastry items along with eggs and bacon and biscuits and gravy. Very nice spread and a large area with tables to eat.

We didn't use the outdoor pool. It is there, overlooking a parking lot. I used the very basic fitness center-an elliptical bike, and treadmill. One pair of dumbbell weights. A TV and a mat. Ok for a quick cardio workout.

The big negative about this hotel is the noise. The walls are paper thin and we clearly heard the family next to us and the people above us all night. There was a constant thump of footsteps whenever we were in the room.

I prefer to stay in more central locations, but if we were to do a trip with multiple destinations around the area, I would consider staying here again. The price was right for what we got.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for something on the top floor to eliminate overhead foot traffic noise.

We recently stayed here two nights (Best quiet room #425) from Jacksonville to attend a Dragon Boat Festival. Upon Arrival we were greeted by "Adam" at the Front Desk who was very friendly and a pleasure.. Later that first night Front Desk "Josh" was super wonderful with assisting us with two issues. One was help printing off an item from the computer. Then later that evening we found out a Dragon Boat Teammate wanted to sleep in her car. So we ask Josh for a rollaway bed not only he ask if we wanted to upgrade to a suite (which we didn't) he didn't charge us for the rollaway. Big kudos to both Josh and Adam for their professionalism and sense of humor. The Cinnamon Buns are awesome and the lady who staff the Breakfast was superior. The rooms are clean, A/C very cold & we LOVE our HOT shower!! Next Month we have a Dragon Boat Race near Tampa Fairgrounds. Even if we have to travel an extra 30 mins to stay at this wonderful hotel we will :)

Room Tip: Room 425 top level end room very quiet :)

Room was ok, neighborhood not so hot.Very convienent to the highway. Includes a decent breakfast . Wimpy shower water pressure. No fan in bathroom. Overall not memorable. Paid $135 for a one night stay off season which seemed high to me.
