I wanted to give a good review of this motel, because their staff took care of us very well when I had to evacuate two family members during Hurricane Matthew. My family members are elderly, and were extremely anxious to find out whether their homes survived the hurricane. Not knowing how long we would have to stay at the motel,...

My husband and I, along with our 21-yr-old son and our two dogs, stayed here when we had to evacuate St. Augustine during Hurricane Matthew. Hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We were extremely grateful that they took us with our dogs. They were very empathetic to our situation. Every other place turned us down. Our room was big...

We were forced to stay at the hotel because of a reservation problem. Were charged an excessive amount, probably over two times what it's worth. We were charged almost two Benjamins for one night! Room was relatively clean but dated. Don't think there is a restaurant, certainly breakfast wasn't included nor would I choose to eat there. Appears to be...

Very kind front desk staff (I assume they are the owners), helpful when I needed ice, courteous, also they got some convenience store item sold in lobby, like sodas, beers, gift packages, snacks so we had everything what we possibly wanted. Right off i75, although being modest place (and priced as such) we got a very relaxing stay. I would...

We were driving from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale. Around Midnight we were exhausted and decided to stop in Gainesville. Unfortunately, not a single room was available. Everyone told us Golden Palms had rooms. So we called and were told they would have a room. Arrived a little after 2am and stood in line to check in (this was literally the...
