“You Get What You Pay For, Not Much”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2013

We booked a smoking room because it was half the price of a non-smoking room. Big Mistake. First the good news. It is fairly cheap, the staff are friendly, and very close to FSU. The bad news is just about everything else. The room was dirty, walls stained from smoking, and it smelled like a chain smoker lived in it for the past 30 years. The bed sheets were filthy when we got there and had to be changed before we would use them. The second set was not as dirty, but you could see right through them. The bathroom fixtures were old and rusty and the bathroom fan did not work. The walls were not very sound proofed, so we could hear the people in the next room quite easily.
Moral of the story is, if you want an inexpensive hotel room close to FSU and don't mind a little smoke smell and dirt, this is it.

Great location if you want to walk to campus, some local bars (A.J's is fun!) and the stadium on game day which is why we chose this hotel. Of course it was way overpriced for the weekend because of the football game, but all the hotels in the city are so par for the course. The staff was friendly and attentive. The breakfast was bare minimum with bagels, juice and coffee.This is an older hotel and has a lot of wear. Could certainly use a lot of updating as the beds were worn and I thought twice about sitting on the furniture. All in all we found everything acceptable for a place to crash at night. The room had a microwave and refrigerator which is a nice bonus. If I visit again for a football weekend I would probably stay here again just because of the proximity to the FSU campus as that is the greatest benefit of staying at this motel.

Room Tip: Ground floor has sliding glass windows so if looking for additional security you may wish to conside...

My choice was based on being close to my daughter who goes to FSU. The price was right and my room was comfortable and clean with coffee maker and fridge, I do not need more and don't expect more, if I would I would go to a Hyatt or Sheraton or so but then I would pay much more too. The hotel also offered breakfast and a free newspaper daily. The owner and assistant were very nice and helpful during the two days I was there. You are close to a lot of restaurants too which is nice. I would go back! Thanks Mike :)
