Like others, I found this hotel on TripAdvisor because I needed a place to stay on a lengthy trip, and the location fit our needs. Wow, what a fortunate turn it was. The hotel is probably an old Florida railroad stop hotel, as it is a block away from the town's restored railroad station. I called from the road, and Leigh, the front desk host, was friendly and helpful from the get-go. She booked the "Safari Suite" for us. I told my wife, "I think she said, "Safari"!, when I got off the phone. When we arrived I found that it was indeed the case. As it turns out, the Safari Suite is the sole room in the hotel that the owner, Tom, got to decorate. His wife did all the rest. Well, he did a magnificent job; the Safari Suite was a blast, very comfortable and we felt as though we might have been in Nairobi in the 1950's. The bed was terrific and we had a good night's rest. The entire hotel is well laid out, and very inviting. In the morning, Tom prepared a very good breakfast, and we had an enjoyable conversation with him. He told me about the performance of "To Kill A Mockingbird", up in Monroeville, Alabama, that he and his wife had seen a week previous. Based upon his review, my wife and I got tickets for this outstanding town play. Point being, his gregarious nature and area knowledge added substantially to our trip's success. Tom's hotel is obviously a labor of love, and you would do very well indeed to choose this as a destination for a pleasant stay. If you like walking or jogging, there is a lake two blocks away from the hotel that is a very nice park setting, and has a path circling it.
