I stayed in this motel last night prior to going to Itchetucknee Springs today. The front desk staff were consistently helpful and kind, gave several good suggestions for the area. Our room was old and fairly dirty. The sheets were threadbare but did appear to be clean. It appeared our room had not been used in quite some time. The...

Service was GREAT....literally could not have been friendlier. The room smelled horrible, the floor was filthy, the drapes were dirty and there were poop stains on the toilet. The beds were very comfortable. The price of the room was extremely reasonable and the location was perfect. The hotel is in pretty good shape and parking is very easy and convenient....

This hotel has nice staff but the rooms need a good general cleaning. Roof was water stained. Stuff on the walls. Shower head put together by tape. Looked like they had people who have extended stays. The microwave was broken. But in general the room needed a good cleaning. We had four rooms and some were better than others. I...

I can appreciate in remote areas the hotels being a bit aged. However, the first bummer was the rust ring around the drain so my daughter couldn't take a bath. Room 101 had nice covers over the mattress and nice and clean beds. Around the perimeter of the room was a dust ring where the cleaning staff must not have...

Traveling to Miami, needed a stay over. Immediate impression is that it's run down, shabby. Walked into the lobby to check in and there was a sign stating " we'll be right back. " had to wait 15 minutes for someone to show up. Room smells clean but it ends there. Grease stains (i hope they tried to wash!) On...

Got a good rate, but got a smoking room with old carpet. Frig froze everything first night, carpet had so many tunnel burns it's lucky the room hadn't burned down. Bare feet turned black from carpet damage. On the plus side, staff was helpful and changed frig and were always friendly. Breakfast ends early, 9am, but staff will break out...
