Good Value

We were only passing through and wanted an economical place to stay. The outside looks very rundown but the rooms are not that bad. The bed coverings were very worn but seemed clean. The owners are extremely nice and very helpful. It was very quiet at night.

Looking for an inexpensive place for the night.

Cons: It is an old building, but I thought it was fine for the price, Maybe a larger TV.
Location: On my way further south. Plenty of places to eat,
The original online price was not available, but for a few dollars more I got a king room with micro & fridge. Bed was very comfy, and the room was spotless. Management was very nice, They had coffee & buns & fruit in the lobby for breakfast, Would definitely stay again. Bathroom was dated, but perfectly clean and in good condition. Give it a try.

The friendly people

Pros: Clean, clean, clean
Cons: The morning coffee. LOL
Location: It is a small town, nothing much to do, but the area is beautiful.
I have stayed here before and everything was great, so, when I made the trip again, (luckily I rserved ahead of time because of the big football game) I reserved the room and everything was great, big football game Gators and Seminoles were taking up the rooms. I had a problem with credit card (gave the wrong card) but everything was okay and fixed in a couple minutes. I intend to stay there next time I visit and need a room. I don't know the owners' names but thet are doing a food job.

Centrally located on the main highway and the cent

Pros: The actions and response of the staff.
Cons: I found nothing for improvement except for a lack of hooks in which to hang the clothing in the bathroom.
Location: We were just passing through and needed only a grocery store. There were two in this small town and both were satisfactory.
The hotel staff was very accomodating, allowed us to check in early, changed our room from smoking to non-smoking upon request, and provided a small table to act as a hassock for one of the two chairs in the room.

Pros: It was clean, comfortable and roomy
Cons: If rhe refrigerator could have been much colder it would help.
Location: I was visiting a friend in another town close by that had no motels at all. Would be a good place to start one.
I had a fiasco with my key which was fixed promptly. I am not a computer whiz, and t got help from the young lady to hook up to wi fi The refrigerator did not get cold and I lost the food I put in it, but the room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable Overall it was very good, I will stay there again when I go back that way.

Quiet and clean

So it was 35 minutes out of my way due to the Labor Day weekend and the game at the UF, I wouldn't mind staying there again because the staff was very friendly, and the establishment was very clean. slept like a baby for the two nights I was there because the bed was extremely comfortable. The only downfall is the air conditioning is loud, but once you fall asleep it doesn't matter.

Worth the price

Pros: Price
Cons: Replace the beds
At $49/night, can't expect too much. The room was clean. The beds were uncomfortable.
