Comfortable bed, Only problem I had was the 3rd floor room with no elevator. When I asked to move to the 1st floor I was told it would be an additional $20. Be aware that the discount applies only to 3rd floor rooms.

This is a clean compact hotel with no elevator and narrow hallways and entrances. Ask for a lower level room which is ramped, however there are no luggage carts and the distance to your vehicle is considerable. Breakfast area is very compact and crowded with minimal offerings and little or no attention from staff which make it messy.

Good, reasonable place to stop. Pool. Clean room, beds and bathroom. Basic breakfast. Easy on and off from I75. We'd stay again. We had our small dog with us and there was a $10 extra charge. The front desk staff was helpful and we had a an easy check in after booking through TripAdvisor.

Thin walls and noisy room AC and dehumidifier meant once I'd shut down the AC/humi the noise from the interior hallway took over. Nice big comfy bed, huge bathroom, big desk area and awesome wifi made this stay worth it.
