My sister and I stayed here when we were in Florence for my niece's graduation and most of the big named hotels were booked full. Room was just ok. Bright paint made the room look more modern, but the dust on top of coffee pot, fridge and microwave told a different story. The convenience to the college and my niece's...

Half was eaten by morning. Couldn't wait to get out of there. Pool was 3/4's empty and filthy. Stay far away from this...

I had a good experience before but was pleased to see the upgraded laminate & tile flooring in the pet friendly room. It provides a way to make certain that the floors are not pet stained and the room is really clean. The bath & bed linens were very clean and the bed comfortable. The grounds are very well lit...

Showed up after a very long drive. Requested a room with no smoking. Right as we showed up all the power went out (not their fault). We tried several different rooms and they all wreaked of smoke, although they said no smoking. Rodney, the front desk personnel was great. He was very polite and tried to be accommodating. We chose...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel. I truly do apologize for the inconvenience of not have a suitable room for you. Although we do have smoking rooms, not all of the are smoking rooms and unfortunately the smell of smoke travels through the air vents and does make it to a non-smoking room....

Great place, great people, very reasonable pricing. Location is very conveniently located right off I-95. Everyone is so friendly and accomodating. I had a great night's sleep, and the breakfast is excellent! The staff was knowledgeable of the area and pointed me in the direction of a few nice restaurants in the area which was helpful.
