We wanted a economocal clean place close to the highway. We found the Paramount Plaza in the Room Saver coupon book. When we arrived we discovered they were almost sold out but they still offered us the coupon price which was very very good. The room was spotless, the bathropom clean and well equipped, and the bed and bedding was excellent. The in-house restaurant has a limited menu but the food was great, the price very reasonable, and the service could not have been better. Overall, this was a great overnight experience and I wholeheartedly recomend them.

I stayed here for one night while I was on the road passing through. I got a great drop in rate and I was pleasantly suprised with how nice it was. I was sort of worried to stay here because the price seemed to good to be true, but the reviews on TA looked good so I went for it. Happy I did. This will be a regular stop for me now. The staff was great, there is a restaurant that delivers and the rooms and furnishings were nice and clean. There was even a balcony. The only negative is that the door seemed old and there was a large gap under the door. I didn't have problem with noise, but if people would have been loud in the hallway it could have been a problem. The location is not right off the highway, a few miles away, but the hotel and the price is well worth the extra few minutes drive.

This hotel has no surprises about ammenities. But is well maintened. The staff is friendly and polite. The rooms are clean and coffemaker, safe, iron and board works good. The wireless internet is good. This is the best choice for the money.

Room Tip: I highly recomment the appartments in the first block.

This place is awesome. I had a lake view room that made me feel as if I was at a resort The room was clean and well decorated and put together. The beds and Pillows were plush. it was nice and It didnt cost an arm and a leg. I got the AAA discount which also made the price even cheaper. The cleaning crews are always visible and friendly.

Room Tip: The Lake view rooms allow alot of light to shine through your curtains. but they also have a blackou...

Decent budget hotel. Pricing is good, rooms are acceptable 2-1/2+ stars. On Gators game days, the price doubles or triples. Best to book through Orbitz if you gotta stay on game days. Price on Orbitz was $100 per night cheaper than front desk price quote (I stayed over the Thanksgiving weekend, which had a UF/FSU game scheduled).

The "plus" is that the Gators football team also stays at this hotel for home games. My kids went wild when they saw the Gators all walk out after breakfast and get on their bus. I guess if I was a bigger football fan that would count for something, but we were in town visiting family, and the hotel is close to their house.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a walk in level. Elevators are slow and klunky.

Have stayed here twice and always enjoyed my stay. Rooms are large and beds are comfortable. Had a side room with a balcony overlooking the lake. Staff is always nice. Enjoy sitting by the pool overlooking the lake. Bar and restaurant is nice. Food was good. The motel is off the interstate but easy to get to and is in a nice part of town. Would stay again. With a travel room coupon price was exceptional.
