If you're not yet eligible for Social Security you might well feel out of place at this hotel, which very clearly caters to retirees. That said, these folks are well behaved, so you probably don't have to worry about some wild party in the next room.
Speaking of rooms, this was very nice. There's a living area/kitchen, as well as a bedroom that is separated by a door. The bathroom is in the bedroom section. Bed was comfy.
There is an almost full kitchen. Unlike many Residence Inns, this one lacks an oven, but had two burners, a microwave, a dishwasher and full-size refrigerator/freezer. All dishes and utensils were clean.
Free Internet was fast. Two TVs, one in each room, but hardly anything to watch unless you want news, sports or the four networks. No Comedy Central? Even my mother watches Colbert.
The real downside here was the front desk. Utterly unenthusiastic, if not flat out bothered, by the sight of a customer. When I asked for late checkout (a Marriott Rewards perk) it was clearly a major hassle and the best they could do was 1 p.m. I just left at noon, fed up.
Location is in a strip mall that is dead save for a Publix supermarket and a bar/restaurant. For anything else you must drive to US-41.
Overall, I suppose I could stay there again, but would probably look for other options.
