Don't stay here - that really says it all. This place is definite not a nice place to stay at all. The rooms are quite outdated. Even the "updated" ones are very very sad. There were 4 couples in our party and, though we booked together and had the same last name, we were in vastly different areas of the...

This was our 2nd time staying here. The only reason we decided to try it again was a lucrative Groupon deal. Lesson learned. Never again. It was my husband, myself & 17 yr old son. Stayed in rm 222. Nonsmoking. The smoke smell hit us as soon as we opened the door. Cigarettes. bleh. Too tired to ask for another...

My husband and I stayed there due to all the other hotels being full for the weekend. The outside of the hotel will definitely fool you. We stayed in room 331 and it was totally awful! The carpet needed a good cleaning, the toilet was broken, the tiles on the floor was broken and was a fall hazard, on the...

we stayed on the first floor in January 2017. it is close to any activity or restaurant you could choose. It was clean and the heater worked well. It is perfect for a place to sleep, watch a little tv, and to shower. So if you are on a busy vacation, its perfect.

So we decided to stay here again, and again, the groupon was sold out I called and asked if I could have that price since...

We book 2nights on New Year's Eve. There was no internet in our dirty out dated room. When we called the front desk, he said sorry can't help you.

Never, ever stay at this place if you prefer to have working heat or AC in your room, as well as a working bathtub. The front desk staff was fine until the last day when we tried to talk to a manager. We were informed that the owner "refuses to deal with customers". So why does he own a hotel?!...

My wife and I visited the island drive lodge for a one night stay. We purchased the room on Groupon, so we were unsure of what to expect. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and inviting. The room was just your typical two queen beds, microwave, and refrigerator. It was dated but very clean. The bed slept...

The location can't be beat. Right across the Parkway from The Island. Several locations to walk to. The hotel itself is old. They are trying to remodel but... It is clean. Our room was a King bed room, it was on the larger size for a hotel room. The bed and pillows were not comfy. But again, it was clean....
