Recent guest reviews

The room was very nice and clean. Bed was very comfortable. The bathroom didn’t have extractor, making it little unpleasant to use it after another person. Tiles in the elevator were loose and I stumbled and almost fell. The manager was very nice and even gave us a room available before the check-in time. Overall I would stay again

Cordial staff, clean room, and convenience to many things. I'd stay again!

There was only lukewarm water for the showers,there were no blankets on the beds;just some sort of shiny cover over the sheets.Room was clean but only ok for the price.

Convenient area for us but room needed to be clean better. Also, our second night we couldn't sleep because some rooms were having a party.

Clean, bed comfy, hot breakfast w many selections.

The hotel was average. The location was great since I had a training in that area. There was a bad smell of the carpet throughout the hotel and the rooms. The staff was excellent. Very good customer service.

For my purposes, the motel and the location were OK

It was very nice and clean. The manager was friendly.

My husband and I drove up from Miami for the Spartan run. Got in later than expected. Brandy at the front desk was really sweet. Recommend an amazing place to eat. Had an issue with the toilet which she had fixed by the time we got back. Room was ok. Few big stains on the carpet and the AC was a little dirty but bed was very comfy. Overall good for the money.

We arrived early. They still let us check in early. Service always polite and gracious. Comfort,clean, all my expectations were fulfilled. Great stay. Thanks!

Last minute reservation for a water leak at the house. Great to have a home away from home during a stressful situation

I've stayed at this hotel on three separate occasions and I've never had any problems. Everything is very clean and very comfortable beds. A few things that I don't like are: There is room service, but it's from an outside vendor. So, you need a minimum order amount to get it delivered. Not a big deal, there are plenty of restaurants in the area. The TV channel selection is very limited. I don't know if it's normal for Florida hotels, but they don't even have local sports channels to watch one of the many local sports teams. Also, this may sound like nitpicking, but the bathroom doors don't stay open. They are spring-hinged so the door shuts on it's own. Seems minor, but if you're in the bathroom getting ready, the door slams shut behind you. If you're sharing a room you can't have a conversation about plans while anyone is getting ready to go out (in the bathroom in front of the mirror) And I'm not exaggerating when I say it slams shut. It would actually hurt you if you were in the way when it's closing. I can deal with these issues because the hotel location is ideal for me. Other than these things, it's a very nice place to stay and the staff is very helpful. Overall, I'd say the little things make a big difference if the location isn't ideal for you. Honestly, you'd be surprised how irritating the bathroom door thing is until you actually have to deal with it.

Had a great time at the hotel and the location was perfect, in walking distance from where I needed to be. The microwave and fridge were great. The room was very clean and nice service from the desk clerk. Did not get a chance to see housekeeping's job. The room was pretty comfortable, not a great view from my spot and the pillows seemed a tad small, but there were four of them at least. Clean bed and room. The cost seemed a little high to me, then again my budget ideals are pretty cheap, so honestly the price is probably fair for most people. Would recommend this hotel.

The front desk staff was always available and very helpful. Rooms were clean and the breakfast included was very good. I enjoyed the fact that you could make coffee in your room or get it in the lobby 24 hrs. a day. Great value for the money. Would stay again.

Nothing exceptional or bad about the hotel. It was a good place to spend a few nights.
