I decided to take my grandmother up here to get something to eat so she wouldn't have to cook just to give her a break and relax. I should've paid attention to the parking lot because there wasn't many cars outside and I was always taught you can judge a business by how many cars they have outside. Anyways we...

Had misgivings because it's right next to the highway so I asked for a room away from the interstate. We were given a room in the back. HOWEVER, there was a truck parked in the parking lot that ran all night. Hotel and room badly in need of a makeover. Bed was ok, but no shower curtain. Tub was disgusting...

Booked two rooms last night and we got bitten by bed bugs. The guy at the front desk was nasty however it appeared that they wasn't surprised by it. I I really think this place should be shut down and fumagated.

It was a debate between three and four stars and I decided to give this place a little love because of the kitchyness aspect of it. Well that and the staff were all quite friendly. By no means is this place the Ritz Carlton nor was it my first choice of places to stay in Florence but it was cheap...

Hotel is old and in need of many upgrades. A train went past everynight and woke us up. No wifi if you are far from office. The breakfast was very good, but restaurant is old and run down. I would never stay there again and I didn't really feel very safe. Lots of other hotels in area.

Passing through on way to Florida so booked one night. Room was dirty and AC smelled terrible. Towels were folded as if they've been cleaned but obviously they weren't (toothpaste and hairs on the towels). Also cigarette burns and smoke smell in our "non smoking" room. Really just a depressing mess. Front desk guy was nice though.
