A friend and I stayed here to attend the wedding of another friend's daughter. We did not have a car, but found that walking everywhere was definitely do-able. We took a cab to and from the reception. We loved the location across from the catholic church where we attended Sunday mass and the short walk to Duval. The continental breakfast...

Nice, quiet hotel away from noisy Duval St. Convienent location. rooms are small but functional. Nice pool. Very friendly staff who seem to care that your stay is nice. Not the place for a honeymoon but nice for what it is.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The location was fab, we parked the car up on arriving and didn't use it again until it was time to leave. Our room was spacious, we were on the upper floor with an outside balcony furnished with a couple of chairs and a table which caught the morning sun. Good choice of food available...

Stayed two nights. Staff excellent throughout our stay. We changed rooms as originally placed in a room next to the breakfast area and pool and felt we had no privacy and it would be noisy. No quibbles and happy for us to have a room in the attic. The room was very small but had everything we needed and a...

The staff were very nice, Lyenna a real asset to their front desk, welcoming us in such a way that we felt at home. The pool was clean and is open until 9 or 10 at night, but really needs a heater! Our room was perfect for an overnight stay but the floor had been overlooked by housekeeping. Their continental...

We agree that Lyenna is a real gem. We're lucky to have her at our front desk offering helpful and courteous service to our guests. The pool is heated to 82 degrees which most people find to be a very comfortable temperature. If it were much warmer, some people might find it too hot. It's hard finding a temperature that...
