We’re headed east to visit family in FL. Our overnight choices were slanted toward decent TA ratings, with a breakfast and a “out the door price” under $60 using senior and loyalty discounts. CLEAN, basic accommodations with just a bit of creature comfort and shelter from the elements to recover for the next day’s travels will suffice. We rolled the dice about a week in advance for the entire east bound leg.
How did this place fill the bill? On budget! Very clean! The newest and nicest property on our trip to date and no major condition issues with our room. The bed was comfortable and there were no noise issues; another good night’s sleep. There was a skimpy assortment of continental type fare but the fruit looked like it had been out for a week and the bread items were all uncovered which was not too appetizing. Waffles seem to be almost universal and not too special after day 1.
The staff was friendly and quickly rectified a snafu when our first room assignment was not cleaned yet or was still occupied. The Wi-Fi signal was good.
It would be very helpful if there would be some effort by the location to make east bound travelers aware that the east bound I-10 ramp is about 10 feet from where you exit their lot. I would guess a high percentage of guests miss this ramp and the street then dead ends so you have to fish your way around and loop back west and give it another try. Not the way to start your day.
