Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel. I don't know the circumstances of your check-in but I did notice that you were traveling with a pet. The room you were given (213) is a pet room as well as a smoking room. If you asked for a non-smoking room, then of course you should...

Stayed here at last resort, since other hotels off I95 were booked. It was ok.. Friendly check in lady...clean room, but bathroom needed major updating. Tub was extremely worn and looked dirty, but wasn't. Beds weren't that comfortable, odd shaped rounded pillows and cheap bedspread. Continental breakfast was opened containers of donuts, a bag of bagels, loaves of bread for...

We need a hotel that accepts our dogs and we appreciate Florence Inn doing this for us. Since we stay in rooms that generally have pets, our review must take that in to consideration. The beds are comfortable. The staff is quite friendly and accommodating. Our only complaint is with the odor from whatever is sprayed or dusted on the...

I stayed here for business. There is nothing special about the property, it looks as though it has been there for some time. The room was nice and large and had a large lighted mirror headboard. The bed and linen were clean and it was super comfortable. I did note some signs of age and lack of maintenance: The bathroom...
