We went 4th of July weekend. We had a nice time here. We enjoyed the pool and the location being close to the things we wanted to visit. The staff was nice and the to go breakfast is a great substitute during covid.

My parents stayed here on their honeymoon and now this is where my husband and I stayed!!

It’s under construction. I could hear everything in the parking lot through the night. People talking, car doors. It may be that our door had not yet been replaced?

The beds had metal springs and were very noisy. People were talking outside our door and doors were slamming quite late.

I LIKED THE ROOM CLEAN AND SPACIOUS. BREAKFAST DELICIOUS.

The renovated room was super nice, you couldn’t tell by the outside of the buildings that the rooms would be that nice. Definitely looks like they’ve done construction

great location, central to everything. great redone rooms

Very clean and organize room. Excellent location and great breakfast included.

Older hotel wheb you 1st pull up, but the rooms have been remodeled and where very nicely done. Only odd thing was location of TV in relationship to the bed

Put us right next to construction of adjacent room. Late checkout was useless :(

We had stayed at the property over 15 years ago, the location was the main reason for our choice. The property then was old but in good condition, but now the property is deteriorating with time and it is really gross. I will not return, the carpets were disgusting, the tiles in bath room were stained and moldy. The rooms were dark and poorly lit, perhaps a wise move the hide some things in plain sight. The bed skirts were stained and that has nothing to do with age of the property. We saw a couple of big roaches crawl out from under one of the beds, one was prompted executed to quiet my 13 y/o daughter's screams. The pool was clean and well maintained, the breakfast was good, but the attendant was cordial but she was listening to a church service through a propped open door which seemed unprofessional. I will return to this property.

We liked the location and its 650 year old Live Oak tree.

The room was bigger than I expected. We ended up with two doubles and a king which was in a separate room. I was surprised that it wasn't nicer considering it has a stop for each trolly and "The Old Senator" in it's parking lot. Mostly it needs to be renovated and cleaned!

Very good location, nice garden. Room was old, stains on bed covers, bathroom works poorly, needs a lot of work.

Check in was s breeze. Dirty linens. Not enough towels per number of occupants. Leak in restroom.
