We stayed here only for one night. The hotel is quite big but has limited parking. The pool is also biger but once again it is not big enough for so many quests. Our room was OK, the location is also fine. Breakfast they serve is a joke! There is just few tables and not much to choose from their... More

This was our second time staying here. Rooms are good size and clean. Front desk staff are very nice and helpful. Pool is large. Free breakfast. The parking is tight. Bathroom is large. We had a fridge in our room. I would recommend and stay again.

Good motel. It is less expensive but clean and neat rooms, worth every penny. OK to Good continental breakfast. Nice Pool by the breakfast place. No look and feel but you won't be disappointed for an overnight stay. It is very near to southern most point as well.

Have never been treated so poorly as a repeat customer, definitely need new front desk personnel. Our room was never cleaned, they just brought clean towels breakfast was HORRIBLE. Only thing I can say positive is new tile looks great.

Very good location, just a few minutes away from southern most point, so be at the southern most point in the morning and you can enjoy the silence there. Around the corner there is the butterfly house. The pool is great, the rooms are spacious and very clean. Breakfast is not very good, but there are nice breakfast location around... More

I was traveling with my niece and we were just looking for a clean safe place to stay (nothing fancy) - this was perfect. The location was a short walk to the south end of Duval Street and it is about a mile to Mallory Square. It is very close to the "Southernmost Point" and right around the corner from... More

Of course there are hotels and resorts which are more fancy (and so their price is). This motel has spacious rooms, fridge, good beds and above all a great swimming pool (to cool down from the heat). Although, like a lot of motels, the swimming pool is in fact surrounded by cars (pool in middle of parking lot), here this... More

Was worried about this place as photos and some reviews don't do it justice. Great place! Would defiantly stay again. Great location next to southern most point and Duvall street. We walked Duvall street end to end in 20 minutes. Clean, spacious room, newly renovated. Was worried about parking but we had no probs getting parking space. Some reviews make... More
