Reviewed 25 April 2012 via mobile

Trip to Orlando, Fl, with 2 year old! Paid 60 for 1 night. Thought it was expensive but we were tired & just wanted to sleep the night! The room is outdated, smelly, cigarette burns on sheets! Definitely not worth that kind o money...

We got to the hotel pretty late and to be fair the staff are friendly and keen to ensure that you have settled in well. However, when we got to our rooms there was an appalling smell of mould. Everything was dirty as well. For example, under the beds there were cigarette butts and the chairs also had strange stains on them. The thing that did make us laugh was that when we had a shower, from walking from the shower to the bed bare foot our feet were dirty due to the state of the carpet.

There is nothing to do there, we ended up sitting in a mcdonalds as that was the only thing that had wireless internet. I would AVOID this hotel!

We found this particular location to be very well kept, rooms were updated, smelled clean, and was well furnished. The outside appearance was very good. We used a coupon with no problems. Very friendly staff. Restuarants close by,easy access. We would not hesitate to stay here again and would recommend it.

The hotel is conveniently located to I-95 and US-1, and provides basic, clean and comfortable accomodations at a reasonable price. Very convenient to restauants of all categories, as well.

Continental breakfast was very scant, andalways seemed to run out of doughnuts (only item provided), and had only coffee (no tea, juice or de-caf). Also we stayed on a week-end when Richmond collected 6 to 8 inches of snow (a rarity) and steps were not adequately cleaned leaving dangerous icing conditions.

Overall, staff was friendly and accomodating.

Hotel is in need of upkeep. But overall beds were soft, and room was quiet. Not the cleanest, but manageable

Very nice place, clean and well maintained. Close to major highway (rt 95, exit 83b). Family operated and they are very courteous. Near several eating establishments (Waffle house across the street, many others near by). Also near major shopping areas. Rooms close to office are quieter as rooms at other end are on major roadway and thus noisy. Would definitely stay there when in the area again. Breakfast, not too good though and pillows are not comfortable. Again, would definitely stay there when in the area again. We stayed there during the last full week in September of 2008.
