We arrived late but no big deal for these folks. They were ready for us and the room was terrific. Breakfast was great too. Had to leave early so they packed me a to go breakfast. My wife slept in and had breakfast later. Easy to get to and get back on the road.

Yes, its a HIA Express and looks relatively new - but looks can be deceiving. There was hot water in the morning, but barely warm shower water at night. The Internet was so slow that when the motel was full on Friday night, it actually stopped working. The Customer Service Manager was confrontational with some people. The rooms have CFL...

We stopped in Live Oak because we were tired and needed to get as close to Orlando as possible. Although we were told upon arrival that the elevator was broken, that seemed minor and we simply carried our luggage upstairs. However, when we entered our room , it was smelly and musty. Everything seemed clean, but the smell was definitely...

Hi jlegendre, Thank you for posting a candid feedback from your recent stay with us. It is great to know that you were able to appreciate the cleanliness of our bed.

The only reason I gave this 4 stars was the price. It seems a bit ridiculous to pay over $100 to put my head on a pillow for six hours of sleep. Now that I'm thinking about it, the trend to go with those bright-white, LCD lights in the bathroom...WOW! They need to be on a dimmer switch. And the...

I am sitting on the mattress pad right now because the sheets in this hotel are so awful that I had to take them off the bed. The mattress pad isn't much better since it has a red stain on it. Until the owner puts money into the linen keep driving!

So, on our way back from NOLA to SC, we somehow missed the hotels and such on the east side of Pensacola and then found ourselves in the great wasteland on I-10 to the east. Little to see; little to do; nothing much to eat but Arby's; sleep in your car. So we treked on and finally, finally came to...

I had a poor experience in using their business center on my last trip. I was reluctant to use the hotel again, because of my previous experience.

We stayed for a 1 night stopover during a 30 day road trip. The hotel is clean, nicely decorated and well equipped. A nice touch was the trimmings for Fall. There is not much to do in Live Oak or the surrounding area but the receptionist recommended the Brown Lantern restaurant where the steak was excellent. There is an added...

Just what is needed after a long day of driving. The room was very comfortable and best of all quiet...all night long. The breakfast is the typical Holiday Inn Express offering, especially my wife's favorite, the hot cinnamon rolls. The staff was very friendly and the rooms, public and sleeping are well kept and clean.

You will notice that there aren't many choices in Live Oak, FL. This hotel, while not fancy, is adequate for business travelers. It's about what you would normally expect from a Holiday Inn Express. My room smells like someone spilled a bottle of disinfectant, but I'd rather smell disinfectant that bad odor.
