Lots of ample parking, even for semi trucks. Upon entry to the room a roach was crawling on the curtain we killed two others. The water came out light brown light rusty pipes. Some stains on the carpet and the bed sheets smelled of the same rusty pipes. Nice welcome from staff but the property needs updating.

The breakfast was great, great staffers. The rooms needs updating and we had dead insects in our bedroom in the shower. I bring my Lysol anyway and always spray the complete room including bed and chairs and my luggage upon arrival and departure. Room 150 needs too have the door lock repaired or replace. There's no tv program so you have just change channels one at a time. Due to unfamiliarity. It was affordable and I will stay again. The rates were great and was only there for a funeral and it severed the purpose I needed. I'm sure they can update and please get rid of those little pillows my neck is still hurting. Next time I just unload minds.

Hot air didn't work

Pros: Bed was comfy
Cons: Fix ice machines make sure air works and but some kind guide what front desk and all are ok
The air didn't work. Ice machine didn't work. There was no guide to what number for front desk which I dialed every number and never could get front desk. Brown water coming out of shower. Told the clerk about it she said there was nothing they could do since I went on line and booked it. I can't believe this but guess I learned not to book online unless you call motel your self. I also called the motel with my cell phone and could not get anyone to answer.

Great Motel for the Price!

Pros: Location for traveling; Excellent free breakfast; Free Wifi; Hair dryer; Modern shower head & rounded curtain rod, Ice machine near parking lot
Cons: Maintenance man could be quieter in the morning outside the rooms
PROPERTY: Motel has nice lobby with restaurant & lounge, I think 2 floors with no elevator, beautiful pool/courtyard with several chairs/tables, no jacuzzi, ice machine, soda, and snack machines near stair/parking lot. ROOM 200: Old, but clean and comfortable with hair dryer, coffee maker with tea bags, very nice updated shower head and rounded curtain rod, double beds as opposed to queen-size, walls are a bit thin, nice view over courtyard (some rooms overlook the Winn Dixie parking lot.) SERVICE: Check-in/check-out was quick and easy with no frills; however after settling in, the front desk actually called our room to make sure we had everything we needed!! That is a major plus in my book, because rooms frequently do not have enough towels or pillows or blankets when I travel with 3 teenage girls! There was a lounge for ages 21+ which served bar food at night. I peeked in and noticed it was loud and pretty empty with a friendly bartender; but the noise was nicely contained and could not be heard outside their door. BREAKFAST: Nice, full-service buffet in the restaurant with scrambled eggs, french toast, bacon, grits, sliced melon, whole fruit, cereal, bagels, yogurt, and more (no waffles, berries, or skim milk.) WIFI: Worked perfectly in room 200 (which was the closest room to the lobby).

A fine example of customer service by Sonya/night clerk when we asked to change rooms due to outside noise.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
The lobby was exceptionally nice and a surprisingly good breakfast buffet. Our first room was by the outside stairway where some guests gathered to smoke and talk. The noise was a bother immediately so we went back to the desk to ask to be moved. The night clerk was very helpful. Because there was not another room available in the type room we had booked, she took that opportunity to make an unpleasant experience, a pleasant one instead. She upgraded our room at no extra charge. Obviously management had taught her about what makes good customer service. That certainly speaks well of that hotel. Because of that experience, yes I would stay there again. The room was just average, even with the "upgrade", but the bed was very comfortable. However, both rooms included a microwave and mini-refrig.

Very dissapointed.

Cons: Noisy
When we arrived in our room #214 on the 24 of Aug, 2012, there were no bath towels, no pillow cases on one bed, and trash in the can by the door. When I called the front desk they said housekeeping had gone home. If this was all okay. It got way worse. We were gone all day on the 25th and when we got back the room was a mess, pizza boxes, all trash cans still full, dirty towels, the ones we had to beg for. I once again called the front desk and was given another excuse, so I placed the dirty towels and trash outside the front door. It was all still there until noon the next day. All the front desk kept saying was they were full, towels were in the dryer, housekeeping had gone home, blah, blah, blah. The outside hallways and stairways were filthy. The ceiling in our room had a huge crack and looked like it was about to fall in. I know this last item sounds petty, but when we arrived the front lobby looked nice, there were even cookies on a tray! But on Sunday evening when we went down to get a cookie, they told us that was only during the week, not on weekends. Really?

Pretty Happy

I recently stayed at this Holiday Inn for two nights. I was very happy with my experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and provided everything as advertised. I am a young woman that was traveling alone so safety is very important to me. I felt completely safe at this location. The breakfast was a great bonus to trip. Overall I would sa that I was pretty happy with my experience.

Never Again!!

Booked with Travel online. Drove from Louisiana, and when I got there, my room was already taken. Waited for about 30 minutes for the front desk to fix the problem, and when the guy decided to "upgrade" me, he sent me to a room with no bedding or towels. When I went to turn the television on it burned up, filling my room with smoke. (Seriously folks, you can't make this kind of stuff up!) Finally, after about an hour, I was moved for a 2nd time to a handicapped room with only a stand-up shower. The front desk told me that I would not be chareg for the room, but as we all know, when you book with an online travel agency they cannot reimburse you.

Great value!

Clean, friendly, great breakfast buffet! There was a problem with noisy neighbors and they took care of it quickly. No elevator so if you stay on an upper level prepare to lug your stuff. Having a fridge and microwave was a nice bonus. The room was very comfortable, nothing fancy but clean (one day the cleaning people did not service it completely which annoyed me). Overall I was very happy and would definitely stay there again!
