Booked large king room and check in went smooth. Air conditioner was shot, hotel repairman swapped out the unit quickly. This hotel has a agreement with Werner Trucking School and the type of clientele was basically down and outers with families visiting at various times; annoying but not a big problem. We did not eat at the hotel but there is a Cracker Barrel within walking distance. We stayed there for Tiger spring training and it was also central to dog tracks in Orlando and St. Petes. I really doubt we would stay there again because of the trucking school clients.
Excellent quality of mattress. Extremely comfortable. Quiet, clean room. In-room coffee is awful; definitely not up to par with the quality of the room, and housekeeping forgot to replenish a few items after cleaning. I ranked it lower in value just a bit due to the price hike they implemented over the particular weekend I stayed. The quality of the room didn't somehow increase overnight, so why gouge the customer for more money on any particular reservation???
Overall a very pleasant stay. Rooms were clean but needed some updating. Microwave and fridge were a big plus in the room. Housekeeping was a little variable but overall OK. The included breakfast leaves a little to be desired as it is only a very basic continental breakfast with mostly bread a pastries.
I had stayed here years ago, many times with my family, when my mother moved to the area. We had many pleasant visits with no complaints. Decided to give it a try again this year after another holiday hotel messed up my reservation. Got the last room, a handicap suite. I was surprised at the price, but didn't complain since rooms were non existent at all other hotels. Checked in with my daughter and promptly went to he nearest drug store for Lysol wipes and Lysol spray. I complained to the manager and they promptly credited me the night (have five booked) and sent staff the next day to make repairs. Had more issues the second night, notified the front desk on my way out, and by the time we came back about 7:30pm the walls had been touched up with paint, carpet cleaned, repairs made and room looked and smelled great.
Breakfast, don't complain... Waffles are good as is the coffee. You want more, go next door to Waffle House or iHop. Didn't use pool, but looked nice. Next to highway, but no complaints, didn't hear it. All other guests seem to be here on business or pleasure. Convenient to many restaurants. PLEASE TRY GRANGER AND SONS BBQUE where the pig meets the twig! Up the road on right a few miles. The BEST around! Sorry, just love them.
I could easily trash this place, but choose to say they were really polite, professional and unbelievably responsive and I commend them for that! They have all been great, lead by a really nice manager. We look forward to the balance of our stay and really wish to thank the management. But one request, walk each room with a white glove and retrain staff to do the right job every time.
I am rating this place as average, which is not bad. It is average.
A nice hotel with a friendly staff. Clean and comfortable. The price was competitive. The breakfast was "eh" (the usual fare--make your own waffle, cereals, hard boiled eggs) so we went out. I would stay here again. Didn't take advantage of any services like pool, etc.
