“Good value, great staff”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

We have stayed in this hotel the last three years when travelling south to Florida, and will certainly do so again. Friendly, courteous staff, clean rooms, comfortable beds, good value for the money. Although the hotel is older, it is well maintained.

I enjoyed my short stay and enjoyed the upgrade to a suite. There are a few minor items that could downgrade this hotel on but nothing you expect from this level or location of hotel.

Very nice front desk and breakfast staff. Comfortable bed, quality tv and channels, quite, good bedding. Location a bit odd and you need to drive to food. Breakfast was above average but could have gone another step that you would expect for 5 stars.

Basically a comfortable place to spend a night on the road.

Room Tip: I was toward the back which might be the quiet side as the front points toward i-75. Drive to food i...

From the front desk to the women serving breakfast everyone was so upbeat and courteous...the hot breakfast was outstanding...the room was superb..can't say enought about the value of this place..beware it is a little difficult to get to as it is basically on the service road of I75..

We stayed the night on our way to visit family in Wellborn and will definitely be coming back. Beautiful room, very clean, comfy bed, great pool, fantastic breakfast & wonderful customer service. Our stay was so much fun. Upon check in there was a kitten outside that we made friends with, in the morning we couldn't find her. Hoping she is safe & possibly even being taken care of.

Room Tip: Ask to be away from the highway, I was warned beforehand that the traffic can get loud.

I am a smoker and most rooms smell awful. Room smelled clean and was very clean. I have stayed at this hotel quite a few times. Had a problem once and they went way out of their way to make me happy. Hard to find that anymore and especialty since it was a small problem, but thanks for all their work! Every staff member I came in contact with were great!!! Please keep up the great work.

What a deal. Hotel coupons from the welcome center helped bring the cost down. Arriving late,we were impressed with the front of the hotel, looked new. First impression was great. I was not disappointed at all. Matter of fact, I enrolled in the club within the first hour of my stay. When you enter the lobby, the first thing I noticed was the smell, it was a new smell with a hint of freshly stained wood. Was shocked to find out it is not new. more than 10 years old. Mary, night shift manager was just wonderful, check in was a breeze . We had traveled 1400 miles from Michigan to Naples for a week stay at a condo that was just barely average. So we were on our way home and decided to stay here before the long way back. I am so delighted we did. I could go on and on about the room; King room, non smoking with frig, microwave and free wi-fi. Bed was so comfortable...we slept in til 830. We went swimming and used hot tub, wonderful. All was so clean and better than home. Hot breakfast with sausage, gravy, waffles, oatmeal and the other usual affair. Check out with Holly was perfect. Thank you, Mary and Holly for a wonderful end to our vacation.

Room Tip: I cant think of any room that would be a problem. Great Hotel!
