This Hotel is nestled in between FSU & FAMU. It is also by the Capitol. It is a beautiful place and very clean. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud and the kitchen was stocked. They have little events every night for socializing. Great value and service.

I was initially put off that the woman at the front desk kept her back turned to me when I entered the lobby, having her counterpart address me and check me in while she mumbled instructions to him. I later found her to be... More

First off, this is not our typical type of hotel so my expectations were not very high but our group had reserved a block of rooms so we tried it. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms need some updating but they were clean. Everything worked and the rooms even have a little kitchen. The kitchen... More

Walking into the hotel was like walking into a friend's home. When asked...the staff provided excellent restaurant choices for our group. Our rooms were quiet and comfortable. What is advertised on the website is honest - no last minute surprises.

First for the good - the property is overall well maintained, clean, and the lobby is very welcoming. The front desk staff and housekeeping are very friendly and customer service oriented. The morning breakfast options are wonderful and the food was great! Now, for the not so good - the bedsheets were old and worn, complete with lots of little... More

Only 15 minutes from the airport, and walking distance to Doak. This is a good location for visitors flying to Tally for a football game. Restaurants and bars close by. $8 a day to park, but don't bother renting a car. Take a cab or the hotel shuttle from the airport. Shuttle might not run during football games. Prices for... More
