I stayed here for ten nights and couldn't be more pleased. The staff are friendly, the place is very clean and it couldn't be better located for biking or walking. It sets adjacent to the Withlacoochee rail trail. This is my second time to stay here and it want be my last. Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. Recommend it...

Yes, there is a new wifi system. It that at times the system goes down for the back rooms. We love this place. Great rooms, clean, large and nice staff. This is the best place in town. Bike riding is the thing here.

My wife and I stayed at the Central Motel because we wanted to ride the Withlacoochee trail and visit the area. The motel sits in about the middle of the trail about a mile south of Inverness town center. We stayed in the room next to the office, fairly near the highway. Not a major problem though probably slightly noisier...

We stayed there two nights. We bicycled the 42 Mile Trail. The hotel is approximately halfway on the trail so it is a great location. They have Lock Storage for the bicycles a great restaurant on-site. Rooms could use a bit of an update but otherwise or very good for our purposes. Inverness is a nice little Community to visit....

Amazed by the huge room. Smoke free, updated furniture and electronics. The pool is very family friendly and cozy. I was amazed how nice it was at an affordable price, wound up staying longer then I planned and the desk staff was great about keeping me in the same room. I will be back!!

My husband and I were in Inverness for a business trip. This motel was told to us by a friend. So glad we stayed there. The room was very spacious, bathroom was really big and nice size shower. Clean, and very friendly staff, especially the lady at the desk. Easy access to where we needed to go. Stores and restaurants...

very clean place. beds were comfortable. Air conditioner was cold, fridge worked great . we had towels upon request and the service was great. only strange thing was when I booked the room from getaroom, somehow that afternoon my credit card was used in Oregon. Cant prove anything but I cancelled my card.

We stay here every year and have for over 20 plus years. Nice place to lay your head and the pool has always been clean. Very close to the down town area that has nice shops. Beautiful lakes in the area for boating.

The motel is right on the Withlacoochee State bike trail. It could not be more convenient if you are riding the trail as we were. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. Cinnamon Sticks restaurant on the motel property has excellent breakfast and lunches.

I have to rent rooms for the judges of my cat show and this place is perfect, but remember there are NO PETS allowed. You can smoke in some rooms but not bring your pet, weird, which stinks more? The rooms are nice bgut no breakfast either.

“Rooms in the back are probably quieter. I don't think there are elevators. Useful bike shed. Great value”
