Great Location. Easy off and on to I-75. Friendly staff. Clean and quiet rooms with a good bed, what else can you ask for! Easy walking distance to several restaurants. I will definitely stay here again on my future visits to the area.

I believe we received a very reasonable rate due to the new motel under construction right next door. Fortunately the workers called it a day by dinner but were up early at 0700 the next morning. Our room was OK for the one night but the a/c does blow on the bed and the wall thermostat was not working. Mongrel...

Staff was exceptional (especially Ms. Sunday)! Rooms were clean and tidy. My only complaint was the mattress. We stayed in room 120 and the king mattress is akin to concrete. I sleep on a firm at home but this was just too hard! Just needs a new mattress and i would gladly stay here every time I visit Florida!

Spent a week at this very nice hotel. The room was large with a cozy sitting area, the bed was comfortable, the hotel itself was extremely quiet and the desk staff was polite and very accommodating. The only thing that prevents me from giving this hotel an excellent rating is the housekeeping. Several days went by before the room was...

Spent a night on the road at this Sleep Inn. It was the best of the 5 hotels we stayed at on our recent trip. Staff was wonderful, warmly greeting us, good humor, very helpful. Location also is good for travelers. We have enjoyed many Sleep Inns during the last several year but this one stands out!
