Completely renovated. Front lobby is really sharply decorated. Staff very friendly, courteous and helpful. Room is very clean, with all new furnishings- from the carpet and tile to the granite on the counter top and tub surround. Very stylish bed linens and 2 chairs and a table. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a wonderful place to stay. The staff is extremely courteous, go out of their way, and go the extra mile to serve you. It is old school quality. They have heard the comments regarding their breakfast and are taking measures to improve it.

Courteous staff, clean and comfortable room and beds! The hotel's fast breakfast provided far more than basic choices. The recent renovations have certainly brought this hotel back into today's market!

Unfortunately there aren't many options for nice places to stay in the area. My agency only books the nicest places and this property was not up to our usual standards. The rooms are located on the outside and were on the small side. The tv had poor reception, the water pressure in the shower was weak, the bed was uncomfortable...

We stayed in Starke Florida because it is a short drive to The University of Florida. Staying at The Best Western in Starke is perfect for going to a game at UF as it is alot cheaper than staying in Gainesville. The Best Western in Starke Florida has been recently remodeled and looks great! The breakfast area has been enlarged......

We stayed here two nights. (In the area for a wedding). The room, as well as the entire building, was recently updated. Very clean and quiet. Comfortable beds. Friendly staff. Housekeeping was attentive. Grounds were well kept. Breakfast was "basic" but it had plenty. Pool was closed for the season, but the outdoor amenities were a nice plus. (patio, gazebo,...

Driving from North Carolina to SW Florida, we thought we'd overnight in Jacksonville, but several hotels we tried were fully booked, so we continued on to Starke. So glad we did!
