In a room which was supposed to me pet free. However, it smelled like a wet dog. No other rooms were available. All we got from the manager was "oh, sorry". Have stayed here several times, but the quality has hit that point where we will be staying elsewhere from now on

Again, in its heyday, this was an interesting place architecturally. It is old now, but we enjoy staying there. Every morning there is a variety of snack foods for breakfast...bananas & apples too. It is a quiet place. It all depends on what you are looking for. Very good price for those going to Shands. When you have to stay...

I went to check out a room and see how it was before i stayed there. Bugs on the wall, stains on mattress, only one light bulb worked and there was a cigarette hole in the blanket. The lady at the desk was nice but for this hotel i have two words "never again"

My family has actually stayed here multiple times with no major problems. There's even a continental breakfast. Can't really beat the price either! I would recommend staying here if you're on a budget.

The property and hotel are very old. 30 years ago this was probably a great hotel. The staff is very friendly.

Everyone was very nice. Fairly close to every place that i have to go. Steak and Shake, just a short distance away and Subway just a hundred or so feet away. Not far from VA Hospital and have VA shuttle bus. No problems with the wi-fi and better TV service than most motels I have visited.

I really don' expect much for a place that is so old. Outdated, needing lots of updating, repairs, maintenance. But, I do expect cleaner rooms, fresh painted walls, a shower that worked. The "breakfast " was almost non exsistant . very lacking. If it wasn't for the closeness of the VA, I would not have stayed here. I won't ever...
