Don't bother to ask for non-smoking, even the hallway smells like cigarette smoke. The room was worse. Turning the wall ac unit to full blast helped cycle air in but still, it reeked. Cigarette burns on the desk. But that's just the smoking part. Stained carpets hall and room. Free wi-fi was slow to middlin'. I don't remember it offering... More

We were looking for somewhere to stay on the drive between Orlando and New Orleans and this was perfect. The price was good, cheaper if you just walk in, the room was a good size, clean with fridge and microwave. It's not in the best location but we found a nice pizza place close by, and location doesn't matter so... More

Enjoyed my stay. Hurricane escape from Tallahassee after 3 days no power and Labor Day week-end surprise. The room was clean, fresh, roomy, friendly breakfast staff but very unfriendly male working Front Desk. If the gentleman doesn't like his job 'quit', The gentleman has to remember to cut the hotel outside sign 'ON' at night so that current guest can... More

This is the worst run hotel in the area. No maintenance staff can possibly work there. Every trash can overflowing. Pool not cleaned for days. Room hasn't been really cleaned in a long time. When I opened the drapes, there was mold on the window glass. To complain to front desk was useless. I got a look at the housekeeping... More

A 5? Must be a fake review. A 4 -- ditto. A 3 -- you are generous. I give it a two because the air conditioner worked great and there were no bedbugs. Can't think of anything else nice to say. It might have been a good place 30 years ago but has not been maintained.

Check-in was quick. After learning my wife had a knee problem, they offered us a handicap room with minimal walking. The room was clean, quiet, and parking was readily available. If you need a quality place to stay for a decent price, try the Hathaway Inn.

This hotel has always been a run of the mill place. Somewhere you could stay in a pinch, but not something you'd seek out. And a few years ago, it was a good deal at about $65 a night. It's that kind of place. Now, they've felt the need to increase the rate to $130 a night. I don't mind... More

Breakfast sucked and a bug ran across my bag when I first arrived in the room. One waffle machine and three cereals and a muffin is not a continental breakfast. Carpet very dirty. Staff nice enough. I wouldn't star here again just pay the extra. The also charge your acct before you arrive

I visited in Aug 2015. It was just my friend and I, and being college students, we were on a tight budget. It was very hard finding a hotel not far from the beach that was less than $200 a night. We found this hotel on booking.com and were a little suspicious, because it was so cheap, but we booked... More
