My husband and I stayed 1 night for the Blink 182 concert at the fairgrounds. The room was clean and simple, hot water in the shower, and comfy beds. Exactly what we needed! Great location and a couple good places to eat nearby. Thank you, Trip Advisor!

The hotel and hallways had a distinct odor. The cleanliness of the rooms and the public areas were below expectations and standards. Lastly but more importantly...if you know that you are having issues with termites and bugs....."we have been monitoring the situation" I would strongly suggest that you rectify the situation before putting paying customers in those rooms.

Very good hotel, VERY clean room! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Bathroom was very clean and had enough towels of all types. Did not use the pool, but it looked well kept and clean. We would definitely stay there again!

for being a late check in and leaving at 9am I really needed a quiet room; I had booked a week or more in advance; my room was a connecting room and very noisy at that time of the morning. I had to leave television on for hours to drown out the family next door; I could actually hear the... More

The only reason we gave this hotel 2 stars and not 1 star is because it's proximity to the midflorida amphitheater. If we weren't going to a show that night we would have switched hotels. There were wet wash rags left in the room. Toilet wouldn't flush well and had toilet paper still in the bowl when we arrived. There... More

If this was not a La Quinta I would never stay there again. I know this was an older hotel, but needs new management. It is in a great location and could be a great place to stay with major improivements.

The room was dusty, none of the lamps plugged in. The carpet was stained and smelled like urine. I wouldn't even take my shoes off. The towel racks were loose in the walls and the remote wouldn't turn the station.
