For a cheap price you get quite good location and just ok accommodation and even free breakfast. There is even a pool in the motel. You need a car to go anywhere from here, its a motel. Manatee snorkling tours available nearby on the opposite side of the road by the river!

Low budget but does the job, you arrive late have a sleep and leave early. It is about half of the Holiday Inn, we just spend the money on good food arriving late and had next day our. Seem to be clean, just the internet did not work! Manatee encounter! was great!

I'm going to spare the small stuff, like the no wifi and other things that were advertised that were not delivered. I evacuated my family, (wife, mother and 2 kids) and had them setup to stay Thursday-Saturday to evacuate the hurricane. Upon checkin they were met by a lady (Kathy?) running the desk who was beyond rude. She told them...

We weren't expecting anything spectacular, given our budget, but we would've expected better from a $20 motel... Here's the run down of our visit. It's lengthy, but its worth the read. We walk in to check in and it smells like cigarette smoke. Mildewy and gross. Then the lady acts like we're inconveniencing her by needing to check in. So...

Disappointingly the wifi didn't work and the breakfast had very little choice. However room was clean although quite small. I needed wifi overnight so was very frustrated when the advertised free wifi didn't work at all. If I had known this I would have booked to stay at Days Inn across the road.

So I knew when I booked my night here that it wasn't going to be The Ritz, but even so, budget accommodation should not be this bad. Check in was horrific, receptionist (Karen) has no manners whatsoever, the words please and thank you do not feature in her vocabulary. The reception area stinks of cigarette smoke despite the property alleging...
