Groveland, Florida
Reviewed 21 August 2015

Even though the rooms are bit dated, I love the view and the fact that it is a quiet little retreat, whether from work or home. I stay here every opportunity I have. The rooms are clean and offer a full little apartment, so you don't have to sit on the bed to work and watch TV.

I was very impressed when we opened the door to our beach view/bay view room. I was skeptical that we were going to get a room with old carpet and not renovated with tile. To my surprise it was updated, phew. So the room we stayed in looked very similar to the ones the resort posted. Room 323 was quiet...

The hotel was conveniently located very close to the airport, and we found it very easily. Our room had a lovely view out across the bay, and a balcony with two chairs and a small table.
