Stopped on our way to Florida. It was a great stop. The bed are comfortable. The pool was closed but the grounds are very attractive. They have restaurants near by. We like the Metropolis. Will return.

I have never left a review for a hotel before, but this one has earned a review from me. I was a little concerned as I drove up to the hotel because the area seemed very rundown and not particularly safe. The lobby smelled strongly of smoke, but I hoped the room would be ok. As I came in with...

I have stayed at better Best Western's, but this was close to the interstate and a nice clean room. Breakfast was okay, but I was basically only really looking for a coffee and a yogurt anyway. Room was a fair size c/w a fridge and microwave. Bed was comfortable. There was a weight/exercise room and outdoor pool, but we did...

The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and comfy. I enjoyed my stay and would stay there again! The breakfast was great and included eggs, biscuits and gravy, bacon, sausage patties and links, yogurt, bread for toast and many pastries. The beds were comfy and TV was flat screen and had HBO!

We stayed for 6 nights because of the hurricane Matthew. Vicki cheerfully fed and cared for a lot of people. Did a great job, became a good friend. Also, Bettina at the front desk worked hard to find another hotel for us for the one night they were already sold out.

Arrived 7pm after a long drive from St Augustine. Received a luke warm reception at check in. Room was large/spacious and clean.
