Reviewed 27 June 2013

Each year we drive out of way about 40 miles just to stay at the Central Motel. Great family owned and operated business, No breakfast,but coffee, ref. and Mc . One of the cleanest motel you will ever experance at any price range.

Very friendly. We chatted with the check in staff for about 15 minutes. Room was very clean. Several of my siblings stayed here while our dad was in the hospital and all were pleased. Great rate. Would/will stay again.

The old motel rooms could use a makeover. The bed was way to soft. You move & the whole bed moves keeping you awake. Shower was tiny! The soap dispensers are in the shower & sink. The new section rooms were bigger & with a nice decor. Okd fashion keys to your room. Not bad for what you pay for. Great frobt desk service. Very friendly.

Thank you for staying at The Central Motel and taking the time to share your experience. We have six small single rooms in our original buildings with regular walk in showers. These rooms only have one double bed and are meant to accommodate one person. The discounted rate on this type room is $48.00. The remaining 49 rooms have either One King or Two Double/Queen beds. The room with two queens are very large and although they are also our original rooms have been updated and remodeled and are very comfortable. The smaller rooms are fine for a guest wanting a clean room at an affordable price and are very popular but as you stated also small. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to The Central Motel.

My wife and two children stayed at the Central Motel in Inverness for Spring Break 2013. We stayed there over seven (7) years ago and they still had our information on file. This was very helpful in making reservations this time. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the 'newer' part of the building (Room #52) on the second floor and it was a non-smoking room. I know that some people will cheat, but this room had no smell from any previous 'smoking cheaters' - this was a boon to my youngest that has breathing problems. I appreciate that we were provided a room that was free of any odors.

The room had two twin beds, large bathroom (large shower only), and a balcony off the back of the room. Also in the room was a refrigerator, coffee pot and a microwave. Another point, ask for a hair dryer for your room. The rooms do not come with a hair dryer, however the front desk will loan you one during your stay. Again, the front desk staff was truly friendly and helpful - - I can't say it enough!!! The room had the view of the Florida vegetation (palm trees and woods) which made it feel truly private. It you look closely, you will find the bus stop down at the street level, but you have to look for it.

As a motel, there is no room service - that's to be expected. There is a restaurant (Cinnamon Sticks) on the premise that serves breakfast and lunch. If you show your guest key card, you will get 10% of the meal. We had breakfast there and it's under the review for Cinnamon Sticks. You can also walk to the gas station and grab some essential items from there if needed.

We had a pleasant and safe time at the Central Motel and would gladly stay there again. There are retired couples to younger bicyclists (there is a biking trail near by) that were staying there. We had no problems with anyone being loud or disruptive in the wee hours. It was a pleasant and quiet stay for the family.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the 'newer building', 2nd floor with a balcony view of the Florida vegetation.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights while biking the Withlacoochee Bike Trail. It is right on the trail so convenience is a big plus. The rooms are clean, well laid out and quiet. There was a microwave and fridge in the room and a nice hot shower. There are other amenities offered by the front office if needed such as a hair dryer or iron. There is no breakfast here, but they offer a 10% discount at "Cinnamon Sticks", a great little breakfast place right next door. The staff was helpful and polite and seemed to appreciate those of us who were using the bike trail. There is the option to lock your bike in a secure area if you wish. It is nice to find a gem like this motel and we will surely stay again during future visits to the area.

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your recent stay at The Central Motel. Our location directly on the Withlacoochee Trail makes our motel a very popular destination for bicyclists. We are located close to the center of the 46 mile trail which makes cycling the whole trail convenient especially if you are planning to do it over a two day period. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to The Central Motel.

We have stayed at Central Motel a few times in the past due to the reasonable price and the convenient access to the bicycle trail. There was a big bike ride this weekend and when I booked the room the only vacancy was in the older building - building 2. My biggest complaint on a previous stay in that building was that the ineternet signal was weak and I could not always connect. I was happy to find that the signal was very strong this time- even though our room was in the far back side of the building. The back side of building 2 are the quietest rooms in the place!
I will continue to stay here whenever I come to Inverness for a bicycle ride.
