Clean, pleasant staff, pool and hot tubs are nice. My only complaint is the rooms are kind of small

When you travel with your pet, options are limited. This hotel, while not the newest, did a good job presenting a comfortable, clean, pet friendly alternative. The rooms are updated, and a fenced "dog park" is available. The staff really went out of their way to be friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was traditional, but the staff did a great job making sure everything remained well stocked, hot, etc. When you have your pup with you, this is a great option.

Very clean.quiet Looks like everything is updated. Nice breakfast.pool.hot tub.gym.laundry room. Alot for a fair price.

Love the retro vibes of this remodeled motel. Spotless and clean. Beds were very comfy and a nice selection of pillows on the bed. Staff were super friendly and the breakfast was great!

Nice updated hotel; good price; friendly staff, and good breakfast.

No luxury hotel but it was very clean and the room had all the things we needed; like microwave, mini fridge, coffee machine, hair dryer, even an iron and ironing board. Staff was attentive and good breakfast. Stayed two nights.

Fabulous service at the front desk, breakfast was really good

Very clean and neat. The feont desk representative was quick and friendly. Would have loved to try the popl....but only weather didnt cooperate looked to be in great condition though. Definitely a great bargain!

Excellent at treating customers, clean and spotless.

Excellent all around. Plus no extra charge for one pet. Highly recommend!

I liked that the property included a hot breakfast. What I didn't like is that although the rooms were smoke-free, guests would stand outside their doors and smoke causing the room we were in to fill up with cigarette smoke. I personally do not like the smell of smoke and I had 2 minor children who suffer from respiratory ailments. The door needed a better seal to at least help with preventing the smoke from entering the room.

Great service, place was exceptionally clean, Staff was on top of everything, well maintained place. Great Breakfast

Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful Great value

Great breakfast and great location. A little tricky to find

Everything was really good and comfortable considering we were there for hurricane evacuation. Thank You to all.

. Property was as expected it was well maintained I enjoyed staying there and would let my friends know that it is a place worth staying at

Room looked newly updated, beds were comfortable and the room was clean.

This previously was a motel essentially for truckers. It has undergone an extensive renovation the rooms are nice the rooms are comfortable and all in all it was a very pleasant place to stay What a surprise! Breakfast was also good including the waffle stand which I particularly love

This hotel was great. The room was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and the pool was fun! The staff was very nice and for our two night stay we had no issues. It was in a convenient area for our St. Augustine trip and a great price for the stay.

Property was very clean. The rooms were very clean as well. Absolutely no complaints. Definitely will be staying there again. Great room rates and I was able to check in about an hour early. Never heard any traffic either, with it being right off 95.
