Small, close to the road, but with an enchanting small courtyard.
Our room was in one of the motel units, very nice, comfy bed. The location is good, within easy walking distance to several very good restaurants--but we chose it for its proximity to the Audubon Society's Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, about 15 miles distant (and well worth the trip!). Very personable staff, a nice small pool.
And breakfast is served with ceramic mugs, glass plates, and stainless steel cutlery, such a welcome change from most "included" hotel breakfasts.
However, the breakfast--why not serve real orange juice instead of orange-flavored "drink"? The pastries were pre-packaged in cellophane (Hostess brownies included), both days we were there. On the second day, we simply had coffee there and went elsewhere for breakfast.
This hotel takes great care with its accommodation and grounds, and perhaps we were there when their usual supplier let them down, but if this was their regular breakfast, it would not take much extra effort or cost to have real juice and non-cello'd pastries. It would raise this potential gem from "quite good" to "very special".
