“desk help terrible”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

first night I stayed here was quite pleasant, Rooms clean, smelled nice. Second night I actually left at eleven pm and slept in my car. Desk attendant was of no help as dogs left alone in rooms near me barked growled and scratched on there door entire evening and was told by the desk clerk to just live with it as he chowed down another slice of pizza . He said it was normal there. Had a few choice words and left Shame that the help could be so rude as this could be a real nice place to stay

Room Tip: sleep inn next door is a little more money but well worth it. Don't think I would take a chance...

I am shocked to hear that your stay was unpleasant! I will be speaking with our staff regarding your issues. This is not "normal here". I hope you will give us another opportunity to make you feel at home with us.

I was hesitant to book this Motel after reading other reviews, I stepped out of my box and did it anyway. It is clean and noticed no smoke odor (as stated by other reviewers). Price was excellent, free breakfast was good, and the warm cookies at the front desk made it all OK.
During my stay I was in 3 different rooms (because my wife had surgery at Shands and her release date keep changing) and everyone was nicely cleaned, with no smoke odors. Best part was they honored my on line pricing the whole time. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Non-Smoking

This hotel was reasonably basic yet very clean and comfortable. Construction made wall-wall and floor-floor noise a bit loud.
