This is a typical middle-rung Best Western, very nicely maintained, clean, looked new. The breakfast area was set up better than most hotel free breakfast areas, including booths to sit in. Make sure to look up - it looks like you are in a pond, with the lily pads above you! Food was fine, nothing more or less than you would expect in any Best Western. It has a small gym with I believe three cardio machines. There was a pool outside, but the weather was getting cool, so we didn't make the effort to try it out. Every member of the staff was helpful and friendly.
Rooms were clean, reasonably sized, with a large modern TV with a ton of channels. Wireless internet access was fast enough for normal work, and it was free. The room had all the amenities we hoped for - iron, ironing board, hair dryer, small refrigerator, microwave oven, a safe big enough for my 17" laptop, and a single-cup coffee machine. The beds were comfortable and had more pillows than I knew what to do with.
The main entrance to the parking lot is off the main road, and is kind of difficult to maneuver through. The secret entrance is between the buildings from the road on the east side of the building, through the always-open gate in the white fence. Much easier access, much safer. Be aware that there is no turn on red at the intersection, though.
The hotel is located near a Walmart a few blocks to the NW (open 24 hours in a town that seems to roll up the sidewalks at 8 PM). There is a Bob Evans restaurant one block east, and a Golden Corral buffet a block to the NW. Head a few miles NW to The Villages and Lady Lake for superior food, shopping, and entertainment options. Directions are a best guess because the roads around there wiggle all over the place, squeezing between the lakes and ponds that dot the landscape.
