I really scored with this place, completely by accident. Driving from NYC to Florida, with my 2 cats on labor day weekend, I was running up against poor odds of finding a room at all. I had already tried two places that were either sold out or did not take pets, but I lucked out with this gem.
First, the front desk assistant was extremely kind and accommodating, which was impressive, considering she had a labor day madhouse with a tour bus full of people who had stopped for the night. She competently multitasked, handing out water and calmly, explaining to one man that there wasn't a fax machine in his room (For some reason, he was incensed at this), and telling people about amenities, while still hooking me up with a room in record time. The room she gave me was the last one available, and I had the aforementioned cats in tow, so I wasn't expecting much. However, it turned out to be newly remodeled, with wooden floors, a microwave, flatscreen tv, minifridge, and desk area with multiple outlets for all of my gadgets. Also, the room and bathroom were pristine, which is, sadly, something that I have come to feel is a luxury in a budget hotel. Other reviewers have said that this hotel has safety issues, but during my stay the hotel was full of tourists, not unlike me. Still, it was nice to be able to park my car just outside my door so that I can hear my alarm go off if anything were to happen.
