We stopped because we were tired and needed a place to get some sleep. Old furnishings, scuzzy carpeting, needs paint - I could go on. The room had a funky smell masked by air freshener. We had been to three other affordable-rate motels that were full so we ran out of options. We turned on the fan to move the...

The Good Hair Dryer, Iron & Board. Microwave, Small Refrigerator all provided and in good working order.

Yes it was not a luxury place to stay but we came to Florida to see our son and the places we usually stay were booked because of spring break. I have seen the pictures others have posted and I guess we were very lucky. Bathroom was nice and clean. I did not see any bugs. Nice TV. Yes could...

We needed a motel to stay for one night before we could get into our resort on Saturday. From the outside it looked ok but once we got our room, we saw what a dive this place is. The floor in front of the sink was soaked through - when you stepped on it, it sunk. The television looked like...

I visited earlier this week and was met with a friendly smile from a helpful young gentleman named Alan. I believe it was his first day, but you couldn't tell by the way he quickly helped us get a room. The room was clean and we were happy to have the free coffee in the morning before checkout! Thanks!

This is a mixed review but bottom line is I'd avoid this place. We asked for a room away from the road so what do we get but one that is as close to the road as one could get. We walked into the room and the gap under the door was big enough for any number of things to...

We have been staying at this Inn for a number of years and will be again this year. I just read some of the negative comments and do not believe them at all. It is not a five star resort but a very clean Inn and has a great staff. John C from Maine.
