Don't be fooled, this 4-room motel doesn't look like it is either safe or hygienic from the outside. But the owner does a great job keeping the inside clean, and the price can't be beat at $40 cash. Great option for spending the night prior to starting a canoe trip in Okefenokee the next day at Stephen C Foster State...

We spent two nights at the motel in early September 2016. A couple plus one. Room was small but big enough. Room had a microwave and a refrigerator. We used both and they worked perfectly. Satellite TV was available but we didn't use it. We spoke to the owner the second night we were there. He was very friendly and...

There's not much to say about this rare find. First it's the only hotel within 50 miles of Fargo. The hotel has only four rooms. I called Kevin early May for a room. The way this hotel works is you call get a room ( they only take cash or check) don't blink when you go through Fargo or you...

My girlfriend and I agree that our stay at the Gator Motel was absolutely wonderful! The room was a good size for two and a dog (and more, if we had it.) The motel is located a very short drive from the Okefenokkee Swamp (Stephen C. Foster National Forest entrance). The owner, Kevin, is easily one of the nicest guys...

We stayed 2 nights at this motel while visiting Stephen C. Foster State Park. This is a vintage 70's motel that is in great condition and well maintained. We rented 3 of the 4 rooms available and each room was very clean and comfortable. Each room comes with a small refrigerator, microwave and television. The air conditioner works great and...

Stayed 1 night at the Gator Motel in Fargo, GA while touring Stephen C. Foster State Park. The room was very clean and comfortable, and Kevin Hart, the owner, made me feel like I was staying in my brother's guest house. Nice!

We had packed camping gear thinking that was going to be our choice as we tracked down friends who were portaging their canoe from St. George to Fargo on Route 94 as part of a 1,200 mile circumnavigation of FL. We drove by the Gator Motel and saw a truck so pulled in. Kevin the owner was there and was...

This place is out there at the edge of the Okeefanokee Swamp and a great value esp over the local cabin rentals. The owner is very accommodating as we were going to get there late. It is small town and he made arrangements for us. We were happy to be close to the swamp for our day trip and the...
