We were visiting family in Ruskin Florida and I decided rather than drive back to Orlando that night, and come back the next morning to meet again, we'd stay over. After looking at some TripAdvisor reviews, in spite of previous poor experiences, I thought we'd try this hotel and judge for ourselves. The reviews were accurate and very helpful.
What a really great surprise and experience!!!
While just 2 minutes off the intersection of I75 and Florida 64, its off the highway and hidden within a commercial tourist complex. There are all kinds of services like McDonald's, Golden Corral, Starbucks and even a Wall-mart very close by. But there was no traffic or noise at the hotel. Even over Thanksgiving weekend the price/value was remarkable. $56.00 for a 2 bedded non smoking room was amazing. The hotel was previously an Econolodge but except for the building layout, there was no trace of an Econolodge after their new renovation. There was even a surprise bag of Oreo's and popcorn in the room. Staff was smiling and very helpful. We slept very well in a clean and well maintained room. If the rest of the chain we all like this property, I would not stay anywhere else.
