I stayed here with my Havanese dog, Buddy on our return to Florida from vacation in New England. The upcharge for the dog was reasonable - $20 and the room was clean and the bed comfortable with a clean bathroom and good shower. Access to this hotel is through the lobby and although it is more expensive than most of... More

This location has a lovely, immaculate lobby. We were warmly greeted late at night and got to our room in minutes. Free use of a laundry room for the families with accidents in the car :) The beds were so comfortable and the room was clean, bright and cheerful. After everyone had a nice hot shower and a great night... More

Stayed one night over Memorial Day weekend on the way further south. The hotel was clean and inviting and the people at the front desk were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and of good size and the king size bed was very comfortable. The only disappointment was that they did not offer a free breakfast like the other... More

I normally stay at the Best Western but they were full so I came down the street to this hotel after a long day's drive. Unfortunately they had a sign up that they were not accepting the traveler's coupon in the savings magazine, so it ended up being an expensive stay. Then after paying the higher rate, it also did...

Friendly reception, modern and well appointed room.Bed very comfortable. Linens clean and fresh smelling. Worried about pet rooms on 4th floor but wasn't a problem getting our dog out using the elevator. Nice large grassy area across the street. TV had many Chanel's. All together a very satisfying stay. Will book on return and eat in the hotel restaurant.

It was great to find this hotel off the freeway, tucked into the back so road noise was not an issue. Very clean, friendly and they had coffee early in the morning. Cannot say much for the food, don't go here hungry but we needed a place for the dog and this place was great.
