This fit our needs for just a place to spend the night while traveling. That is all I would stay there for. Don't bother with the breakfast, it was awful! Bananas were black, there was no juice, pastries or yogurt.More

We stopped late at night and were happy with this motel. The front desk was helpful and sympathetic when the website we booked thru was screwed up. Hotel was freshly decorated, clean, and breakfast was enough. Despite being nearing highway, room was quiet.

Never did room service but we saw another couple come in the on- site restaurant, order food to have delivered to their room. Hope this helps!

We are about 12 miles away from the don garlits museum. The I75 route takes you right to the museum. No inside road to drive on.
