We stayed for one night, on our way from Louisiana to Orlando - a stop along the way to rest before a long drive. We had a very open mind, considering what we paid for the room, but maybe our expectations were too high after reading so many great reviews...
The breakfast was really quite nice. There was a do-it-yourself waffle iron, with a machine that dispensed batter, and a timer to let you know when the waffle was done.
The phone didn't work, so the man at the front desk replaced it with another one, which didn't work. No big deal, we had our cell phones, but couldn't place a wake-up call as a back-up plan. The smell of mold in the room was very strong. There was a silverfish in the shower. The AC was hard to regulate, and we froze all night, so didn't really sleep well.
If you're looking for an inexpensive room, this is what you'll get. I would suggest spending a little more money if you'd like a better night's sleep and a nicer environment.
