The hotel was physically beautiful. I had two rooms booked for one night,we were meeting family that was traveling from Ms. To Jacksonville. They extended the military discount to us as my daughter in law just returned from Afganistan. After dinner we returned with a carry out box from Longhorns. There was no frefridgerator in our room and they delivered one to the room. The lounge bar and restaurant served excellent food. We were very pleased with everything, highly recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor and it was very quiet.

We stayed only one night at what Priority Club calls a "Full Service" Holiday Inn Hotel in Lake City, FL. As you enter the hotel you are at once impressed with the Lobby and Front Desk. To your left there is a small bar and to your right is an area used for Breakfast called a Cafe. However, when you get to the room you'll find it to be dated, although new furnishings are in place, with a over-sized bathtub in the corner of the room somewhat like you'd expect in a Vegas "Honeymoon" Suite. There is a complete bathroom with tub/shower also. The air conditioning was the old type wall unit, but they had added a thermostat control on the wall which we had to get up three times during the night to turn it down a the room heated up to 77 degrees. When I inquired if there was a "Free" breakfast served in the morning I'm told "No because this a Full Service Hotel", but there is a pay as you go Cafe for a brown bag breakfast should you elect it . Well call me stupid, but it would seem to me if it were really a "Full Service Hotel" there would be a "Free" breakfast offered, like at the Holiday Inn Express. However, what I did find most helpful was that next door and across the street to the hotel were two excellent restaurants Ruby Tuesday (next door) and Cracker Barrel. On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 be the best) I'd rate this hotel a 6. Of extreme importance to me was that they DO allow pets (under 40 pounds Non-Aggressive). So you can expect to take your small pet and have a clean room and a comfortable bed. Ok for a one night stay.

Room Tip: If you have the time and the room choice is important then ask the front desk if you could see one o...

First off , The Staff at the front desk go above and beyond Every time we stay . And we are regulars of a sort but we return because of how we are treated each and every time. The hotel does show signs of aging but it is clean , quiet and the beds are comfortable. It's located right off the interstate , easy off ,easy on Great little TiKi bar with good food AND Drink. Everybody is Happy , Happy - Including Myself and my staff. Thank You all for making us feel at home when we are Sooooo far away from home .

Room Tip: All I can say is the suites here Are SWEET ! ! !

Stopped here overnight while driving to the gulf coast. Perfectly fine Holiday Inn with comfortable rooms and helpful staff.

However, I remain confused as to why a Holiday Inn Express can serve guests a complimentary hot breakfast and a full service Holiday cannot.

Husband has an early morning appointment at the VA hospital there, so we chose to spend the night before. Less than 5 mins to hospital. This is a full service hotel and a 100% nonsmoking property. Plenty of eateries, etc in the area. Pool is indoors. Pool was crowded with kids so my husband and I passed. Food and drink in the restaurant and in the bar are rather pricey but quality is pretty good. Comfy beds and everything functioning properly. Got a good price, if not a cheap one, through Priceline express deals.

This is a lovely hotel, with full service restaurant and bar, indoor pool, etc. Being so close to the Georgia border and I-75, it picks up a good deal of tourist traffic. I stayed there with two children aged 13 and 7 for 2 nights, before going to Ichetucknee Springs. Even with the crowd and nearly 100% occupancy, we had a great time and a good nights sleep.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the atrium have the view but are a little noisier. May want the parking lot view.
