“Look for a better place”
Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

On a three week drive through the southeast, this was our least favorite motel/hotel. Too bad. We love the area and hope that some of the other local accomodations are better.

Check in took forever and the line built up behind us. We had reserved a king but did not want to lug our bags up narrow stairs to the only room available that did not reek of cigarette smoke. We made do but it was a pain. The room was clean but still felt old and dingy.

Literature promised a 'full' breakfast but it was not and it was too crowded so we opted to leave and found a delightful breakfast in town at cafe Con Leche overlooking the water. Much better.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay at our property.

On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations. I feel bad that you didn't get to join us for the "COMPLEMENTRY FULL BREAKFAST" which consisted of scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuit and gravy, home made waffle, yogurt and a variety of pastries.

I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience.

If I can provide any assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me directly at 850-653-9131.


Sincerely,

Sejal Patel

The location/convenience, price, comfort, breakfast, and cleanliness of this Best Western were all top-notch making it an excellent choice for travelers on a budget. The only downside really were the thin walls. Maybe it was just our particular room (it had a door connecting it to our neighbor's room), but we could hear our neighbors clearly from next-door. This was a big problem because there was a family with young children, so we could hear them yelling and screaming, and their parents yelling at them back until late at night. The next day there was a new neighbor who listened to the television while laughing and making comments that we could hear clearly through the wall/door. I would stay here again, but next time I would ask for a room that isn't connected to the neighbor with a door, because I think that's how most of the sound got in.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that isn't connected to a neighboring room. Ours was really noisy - could hear ne...

We walked in off the street without a reservation. The hotel was updated. VERY clean. The bathrooms were clean and the rooms were fairly large. Close enough to all activities in town and seemed to be in a decent part of town. Front desk clerk was VERY friendly and helpful. We had a king bed and plenty of room! If I had little children there would have been room for them to play in the room. Very nice! Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Great curb appeal and very nice inside too!

No problems here, beds were alright, had a good sleep. Alright for one night. Staff was friendly.
Rooms are clean and looked re-done but still old (beds, carpet, painting). Hope for quiet neighbours !! You can hear your neighbour speak.
Price was to high, payed 90 dollar for this average motel.

With only a handful of rooms in this area, this hotel offers some of the best "Business" class. The rooms are exterior entrance something I am not fond of. Check in was smooth and desk clerk even gave a coutesy call later in the evening. My room was large, but lack of correct furniture made it seem like a room in transition but I dont know from where or headed toward. There were 2 mismatched desks and office chairs,one set could have been traded for couch and coffee table making this room a "great". There were 4 styles of furniture in room, lending to the quirky starving artist feel of this area. The bed had a hard rim around mattress, but once in it was a very comfortable bed. Four different pillows helped dreams come sweetly. The bathrooms have been updated with black marble counters and tub enclosures, too much for this level hotel. Put that money into matching furniture and linens. The breakfast area was off office area in seperate large room, more spacious than most. Downside, if you are in a room at either end and weather is cold and rainy, then you are wet before coffee, not good. The selection was suprising, standard cold pastries,bread,etc. A hot 3 part chafing dish offered eggs,grits and sausage. Cold and hot cereals with fresh strawberries and blueberries! Very good breakfast! Checkout involved a wait as an inspection was going on. Overall, for this area,a good value. Non descript, older property but they were redoing parking lot during my stay. That money could have gone toward getting rid of red bedspreads and mismatched fixings!!! If ever in this area on business and not looking to spend several hundred on a room in an antique mansion room, I will return to this Best Western, they are at least trying.

Room Tip: If bad weather, get a low number room closer to office.
