As we pulled the blanket back we noticed the sheets had blood and paw prints on them, clearly not changed from previous people. Went to front desk, she was apologetic and very nice and gave us new sheets. The window in the bathroom was broke and the ceiling coming in. Very disappointing since I relied on TripAdvisor reviews. Breakfast is a joke, the yogurt was warm and bananas brown. Room numbers are
wrote on a paper and taped to the doors.
Perk: staff was very nice. Room appeared clean.

Thank you for your recent stay. We apologize that your sheets appeared dirty. We value your comments and are taking steps to insure that this doesn't occur again. Yes, because of all the recent upgrades to the property, including painting the doors, we do have paper numbers attached to the doors so that guests know which room is which until the permanent ones are completed by the printers. Please give us another try as your experience is highly unusual for our property.

We stayed here because of a 4 star review. The hotel is 2 and a half star at best. The air conditioner was loud, the room was clean and the bed was okay. The breakfast was “grab and go” with no place to sit and eat. Breakfast was tea or coffee, instant porridge, packaged muffins and yoghurt.

Thank you Mrs. Bacon for your recent stay. While it is true that we offer a modest "grab and go" breakfast many of our competitors do not offer a free breakfast or any breakfast at all. We also could provide a larger selection but then we would have to raise the rates and we try very hard to keep the rates low. Most of our guests would rather have lower rates than a free waffle. We are glad that you found found us to be clean and the bed to be comfortable. We hope that you continue to enjoy your vacation in Florida.

When it says "Best Value Inn" you might be sceptical. But it really is. Very convenient just off I-75, always clean, with decent sized rooms and a really hearty breakfast to take back to your room. But the clincher is the friendliness and helpfulness of the proprietor and staff. The guy who always helps me out is manager Matt, so this is a personal tribute to him!

This place is very nice and clean. I highly recommend. You definitely can't beat the low price. Everything is near from the grocery store, to the near by restaurants. Front desk customer service is awesome, make you feel right at home.
