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.

My sister had blocked off some rooms for her daughter wedding party. My sister and I came from out of town (the 2 older aunts) and thought this would be the logical place to stay. It turns out they showed her the newly remodeled rooms but we got put back in a room that was old, fifthly dirty carpeting (our...

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at The Central Motel. My Head Housekeeper told me Monday morning about your dissatisfaction with your initial room in building three. Most of our guests are very happy with their accommodations so we take any complaints very seriously. Your sister requested the "new" building when she reserved the block of...

Ideal lodging for bicyclists for 3 reasons. #1- the Withlacoochee Trail runs through their back yard. (Ask for a room in the building that overlooks the trail.) #2- They have a covered & locked bike storage area, and #3- the management is very nice and accommodating. There is a local restaurant & bakery in their parking lot (breakfast & lunch...

Our room was lovely, spacious and overlooking pool. Pool was clean area had enough tables and chairs to accommodate the guests. Front office staff was very helpful. Rented bikes and with their location right next to the trail such an easy way to attend the festival. Already thinking about next year and would definitely come back to the Central Motel....

This is our second time staying at this motel. Room was very clean and the best shower of any motel I've stayed in . Mirta our housekeeper for the week did an excellent job. Stayed from 10-15-2016 to 10-21-16.

Not great but price ok. Shower not so good. Barely room to move. Large person wouldn't fit in shower. Stains on carpet. Bed seemed clean though. Pool area closed at sunset and we wanted to sit out there in the evening. Highway noise made sleep difficult. Probably wouldn't stay there again unless we got a room in the back.

For a motel this is awesome! More than expected. I'm so impressed with the friendliness of this place and Inverness in general. I visited with my husband and friends for an annual bike ride in the area. The trail was right behind the motel. It was very clean and the bed was very comfortable! There was a microwave and small...
