“Clean room for the money.”
Reviewed October 2, 2011

Nothing spectacular about this place, but it is clean and perfect for an overnight stay. We were traveling from Gainsville after a ball game, and just wanted a nights stay, so this was perfect. Good value and clean.

Mike the manager had the A/C turned on prior to my arrival. When I called to make reservations Mike asked the right questions (Smoking? Prefer room upstairs or down? etc.) This is a former Motel 6, so the shower is small, but the room was clearn, quiet and it's in a safe area. I'll look forward to staying with Mike again. There's a Waffle House one block away on the same side of the street, and a great buffet in the mall, about one mile away. The buffet is not a separate building, the entrance is on the south side of the mall. One of the best buffets I've ever seen.

We stayed at this inexpensive yet comfortable hotel during our Positively Crossing America with brain tumors charity walk for Miles For Hope. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was comfortable and they have an outdoor pool. Also, the hotel is conveniently located near a Wal-Mart and several restaurants.

On my way to Daytona to meet a friend for vacation, and decided to stay at this motel 6. The room was clean, and the king bed is very comfortable, but the carpet is old and woren with paint drops and needs to be changed. Best thing about my stay is the price, less than $45 taxes and all, also the people, Bessie in particular. She was very helpfull and gave me directions to a great local resturant for lunch--Mike's Cafe. Overall, for a no-frills motel for a shower and a good nights sleep it is a very good price, and everyone is friendly. I can see some renovations going on, but the carpet needs to be changed first.

Stayed here with extended family for one night on our way to Disney World. We rented 3 rooms for the night. My in-laws had to change rooms because when they opened the door, they realized the carpet was wet, caused by an overflowing toilet so obviously the room hadn't been checked prior to us checking in. In my and my wife's room the carpet was filthy with stains all over it, the bedspread had 3 cigarette burns in it, the TV was very unclear, the bathroom was dirty with stains in the toilet, hair in the shower and rust stains running down the shower walls. There was a hole in the wall above the bed and the batteries were held in the tv remote by a piece of tape. Parking was an issue since our room faced the parking lot so obviously we wanted to park where we could see our cars out the windows but the stairs to get up to the top floor were quite a walk away.

We knew when we reserved the room that we were getting a no frills place to sleep since the rooms were only $45 each but we expected at least a clean room and bed. This was one place that I honestly felt dirty after I had a shower. This was my first and last time staying in a Motel 6. I've heard the brand as a whole is good but this motel clearly ruined the brand's image in my mind.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate your input and as the new owners, would like you to know that all of these issues have been corrected. Except for the parking...We can't move the hotel. It just isn't possible to have every car park in front of each room.

We are America's Best Value Inn. Carpet. A/C's, tile, paint, beds, bedding...are all new.

Please visit us again. Thank you again.

If you need a clean, no frills place to sleep, this is the place. We were just looking for a place to sleep on our way home so we weren't looking for any special amenities. It looks as if the rooms have been renovated recently. The price is very reasonable. The person checking us in was very helpful and courteous.

We arrived without having a reservation. Hotel is fine for an overnight stay at a pet friendly hotel. Room was clean and quiet. Close to I75. Was a good value at less than $50 for two of us. I would stay there again.
