We stayed one night for a wedding we were attending in the area. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and clean. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was average. Even though we didn't really need it, it was nice that the room had a microwave and fridge. Overall it was a great value for what we paid for the room.

I stayed at the Sleep Inn the night of the Jason Aldean concert in Sanford Stadium for less than $100! I booked over five months in advance, and all of the hotels closer in to campus were already sold out. Everything was more than adequate for the price - nothing special, but no complaints. Check-in was smooth, the room was clean, and there was breakfast. The only criticism I can think of is that the pillows were small, almost square, and I didn't like them.

Checked in on a Thursday evening and noticed immediately the several stains in the carpet. Though the front desk clerk was friendly and helpful, I had to ring the bell the two times I needed something because they were in the back (during normal business hours). I was told that they could not accept my AAA discount because all rooms were booked. There was a long hair in one of the fresh towels on the towel rack. The room was quite the two nights I stayed. Breakfast was fair.

We appreciate you taking time to write us a review Mr. Tret. We apologize for the mistake our housekeeping made in regards to your room towels. Next time please remember we have a housekeeper here at night as well; so if for some reason we miss your room during the day, you can call anytime and get it later in the afternoon. We hope to see you again in the near future.

Small rooms. Not very clean. Dark lighting in our room. Carpet in room needed cleaning, badly stained with something black that looked like oil. Bathtub had a couple of chips. Hotel seemed rather worn to be so new.

Room Tip: Just average low cost hotel.

We had a long-term stay at this property - 73 days.

I worked directly with the General Manager and was able to negotiate a great rate and got upgraded to a "suite" that would also accommodate our two cats. The GM was very responsive to our needs and did all he could to meet our needs.

We checked in on Christmas night. It was relatively quiet and it took less than two minutes to get checked in. They had two luggage carts available for us to unload the pets and belongings.

We got to our suite on the second room; it is actually just a larger room with a sitting area with a sleeper sofa/seating area. The room also had a refrigerator and microwave. The room was extremely clean and no major issues whatsoever. It would have been nice if the closet was larger for our clothes but we made it work. The bathroom was also large enough for the litter box, water and food containers.

Over the next few days, we were able to move things around to work for us... and actually had the staff remove furniture that gave us more space. The staff was glad to help us.

The staff was very friendly and always acknowledged us and said hello whenever we came in or left.

The best example of customer service for me was the following: Towards the end, we had to go back to Rhode Island to pack up our home and would be away for 10 days. During that time, the staff checked on our pets daily and took care of feeding them and cleaning the litter box. That is certainly going above and beyond the call of duty!

To me, the only negatives were the slow wireless internet service in the rooms and constant lack of a working printer in the lobby. However, those inconveniences in no way affected our overall view of the property.

This property does get a lot of business and was sold out on many occasions.

In all cases however, the GM worked with us when we needed to extend our 60 day stay longer due to the closing of our home.

We would highly recommend this property.

Room Tip: If you want quieter rooms, I would recommend lower numbers (away from elevators and ice machines...

I had checked out of the Comfort thinking I was going to go home that evening. But a problemn at work caused me to have to stay another night. I had stayed at the Sleep Inn in Athens, GA the week before and I knew it didn't have the comforts little problems. So I called Choice Reservations and made one for this property. It has a Sonic next door and since I was so tired it was a convient place to get food to eat in the room. The room is every bit as good as the Comfort with a good office chair, refrigerator, entrance lighting and great water pressurre. The bed was very comfortable, the heat and ac was great ad the desk lamp lighting was great also.
The staff was very friendly and helpful.

I just stayed 2 nights (the weekend before Christmas) and I was very impressed with the cost of the room being that close to a major holiday. With rates like that...all I expect is a clean room with no bed bugs...and that's exactly what I got.
