“Perfect Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

I am happy I stayed here yesterday evening. The rooms were clean, good price and easily located. I will definitely stop here next time I'm traveling on my way to florida.

Room Tip: Easily off the interstate

When we checked in, I noticed a sign that said refunds would only be given for 15 minutes. This should have been a warning. We left the lobby and got to our room, which was quite dirty and smelly - par for the course, from what's here. We went back to the lobby and asked for a refund, only to be told that we had been checked in for 25 minutes - a lie. When my wife pointed out that we had just left the lobby, we we told that we were lying and not curteous. This opened the floodgates on our anger, and even presenting my credit card receipt did not convince the manager. Finally, the maintenance guy agreed that is was dirty, and we got the refund. While waiting for the maintenance guy to get back, another couple came in and said they had no power in their room -€gain, typical.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!

Keep driving! If it weren't that we had two very tired grandsons, we would have left. I would not recommend this filthy place!

I was traveling to our condo in florida for spring break with my kids. This place is good for its REASONABLE price. It didn't have breakfast, but the clerked explained to us they priced $10 cheaper to compensate so we could get breakfast on the road. If your looking for a fancy hotel with all the gilts and glamor, this isn't it. this is just a good place to spend the night shower and his the road. its location is great.

On March 24, 2012, I rented the conference center for a special event. The management was very helpful in providing assistance. The conference center is spacious with elegant design. The rent was reasonable and I was overall pleased.

I drove some 750 miles from FLA. to get here.... After signing in, I went to the hallway to get to this " prison cell".....ceiling was falling down in the hallways, which was about 6 inches from the top of my head.....I didn't even get into the room when I saw my first roach...That said, I went straight back to "levi" ( black, hmmm ), and demanded my money back. He refused, and I left for the Days Inn across the street ( only a half of a dump )... I would not stay in the AREA even if you paid me, again.....

Room Tip: Don't bother
