Stopped with my family on the way to Disney World as I did in 1978 as a child. Nothing has changed, not even the sheets. I had a double deluxe room which is two rooms with the connecting door open. The room had a refrigerator and a microwave. Everything was in working order. Everything was a little dirty for my...

Over priced, but friendly staff. Labor Day week end, but no problem getting a room, as soon as we walked in the room I knew why! The room "looked outdated and nasty" The first thing I did was check the seams of the mattress to see if I saw any dead bugs under the bottom sheet.Don't even think of walking...

Don't get scared about the title. We arrived late in the day so I was tired. You pulled right up to your room. We unloaded the truck and took in what we would need for one night. After we settled in bed there was a knock at the door. I answered and a security man was standing away from the...

I have driven from Mass to Florida probably close to a dozen times in my life and have always wanted to stay at South of the Border. I got my wish fulfilled this past August and I wish we had just kept on driving. When we pulled into the motel the hotel staff were super friendly and checked us in...

I remember driving down to Miami Beach as a kid and visiting this place along the way when I was a kid in the 80s. Aside from new stuff they've added, it's a great flashback to when I was as kid, making sure my daughter knew that her Mom had taken a picture under the same Pedro statue when I...

We arrived last night late and were given 2 adjoining rooms. Smelled musty. looked like a room a hooker would rent. Blankets hard as rocks. Pillows stolen from an airplane. Bugs. Yes you heard me, BUGS in the bathroom. Slugs and some black millipede type things. Had a 3 year old to put to sleep so didn't call "consierge" (I'll...

We often stop here on our trips between PA and FL. Looks like there is remodeling going on in the motel. Fresh new exterior paint, and in the room new carpeting. Room very clean, beds clean, fresh and comfortable. Pets stayed free! The front desk help were friendly and always accommodating. We were pulling a utility trailer, and security assisted...

My husband and kids ages 10 and 6 stayed here on our way home to FL where we live, first of all the young lady at the front desk was rude, and looked and sounded bored and in no mood to be bothered, I have to admit it was kind of late when out of pure necessity we stopped at...

It is a tourist trap on I95, we all know it, but we stop there anyway. However, the musty wet feel and smell to the room was just plain gross. The formica in the bathroom was chipped, the towel rack was hanging by a screw, ready to fall off. I dont think the carpeting or the bed has been updated...
