We stayed here for only one night. The desk where we checked in seemed from anything less than a hotel. All out of place and disorganized. The room was good and the beds comfortable. The breakfast was ok.

I did a job in Monticello and stayed there a few days. It was very nice and clean for an inexpensive hotel. I have since started a big project in Tallahassee but drive the extra 15 miles to get to this hotel. It truly is the best bang for your buck and much better than the same Econo Lodge in...

We live on Amelia Island, Fl. We were told to evacuate the island because of Hurricane Matthew. We called ahead and made reservations. We chose this hotel because they are pet friendly. After reading the other reviews, let me say this... this is no Marriott but it was a very clean and friendly property. They could not do enough for...

The description of this place on Hotels.com was so inaccurate! It said this motel has a restaurant, an arcade/game room, a gift shop/newsstand, and a coffee shop/cafe. It had none of these!! At one time there was a gas station on the property up near the entrance road leading to the motel (which sits at the far right side). The...

The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The check-in process was not the best. The clerk was new and did not know that room 114 was a ground floor or where it was located. The "full" breakfast ended up being a slight continental breakfast. The "onsite restaurant" was not onsite or even close.

By far the worst hotel experience I've ever had. No water in the room! (Shower did not work, toilet did not flush, sink did not work) Handle on the shower broke off, room had a used coffee cup lying on the room's desk that had not been taken out by room service, ashes in the ash tray (smoking room) and...

The place just feels bad when you drive up to it. Believe it. It took a half-hour to check in and we were rushed out very rudely. At 8 am the morning of our departure, the person who checked us in banged hard on our room door. There was no answer to our shouts of "what?" 20 minutes later, more...

We stayed here for one night while traveling and had no problems. Check-in was easy and we had a good value. The staff that I interacted with in person were great. There are not a lot of perks here but for a budget-minded traveler it was fine. Our only complaint was the breakfast offering. I sent my husband down to...

Thanks for kind words. We are working very hard to meet franchise and health department standards for food and beverage.

This property is 4-star example of a 2-star motel. While you shouldn't expect many perks from hotels catering to the budget-minded traveler, you should expect the basics and those few perks to be well-executed. This location executes very well, albeit not without a little room for improvement. I had no complaints with the basics. The room was clean and in...

We have stayed there 3 times for the festival- each year gets worse but this year was terrible. Saturday they forget to even clean the room- beds unmade towels on floor garbage in cans. Next night made beds with sheets and blankets hanging off of beds - no cups replaced- no coffee and the hair blower didn't work for all...
