Beautifully maintained hotel. If I could I would have taken the king size bed and pillows home with me. It was the best nights sleep I have ever had at a hotel room. Room was very spacious. Hotel staff very friendly. I was even able to do an early check in.

The hotel has just been upgraded and looks great. It appears all work is now complete as is expected it is clean and well run. If I had a complaint it is that getting back on the highway from the hotel when turning left can be challenging.

A great spot to stay while visiting Florida's Mt Dora. The room was nicely appointed and the complimentary breakfast was tasty. Staff was very helpful although there were many of us there for a women's retreat. I witnessed a front desk clerk volunteer to help an elderly couple get their baggage to a room then go up and help them.

This review is for people like me who have spent too much time in a hospital. The hotel is undergoing a renovation but the new color schemes and room decor are similar to what you’d find in a hospital. Gone are the hip greens and warm earthy browns, now it’s cold drab whites with off-hue blue and rust colored accents.... More

Very, very clean, well run, quiet large rooms, and great breakfast. What more could you want? also has wifi and some rms have fridges and microwaves. Easy location for Mt. Dora, Eustis, Tavares and Leesburg - with Orlando being about an hour away. Lots to do in the area, and back road travel is beautiful Old Florida.
