I have not stayed at a motel (outside access) since 1993. So I gave an "average" rating because it was neither a poor hotel experience nor a very good hotel experience.
Stayed here after booking last minute for a Gator game. If you need a place to sleep and that is all you want to do, this is a low budget option. The free breakfast was minimal (waffles, coffee, bagels, cereal, OJ, milk) but filling - with little options for individuals with dietary restrictions (none in our party). Rooms were clean overall. The two couples in our group didn’t find anything dirty. There is room for improvement (see below) – but overall, not bad (I was pleasantly surprised) for a low budget hotel.
Room for Improvement:
Attach all fixtures to the wall securely.
Update all bed linens (it's 2012).
Update toilets (they use too much water and are constantly running).
Include some fruit items at breakfast.
Notify the front desk attendant that they should always take a proactive approach to service (visitors shouldn't have to ask for routine services).
