This hotel seems to have a policy about cleaning the room. If you have the "do not disturb" sign on the door when the maids come around they will not come back. When I am on vacation, I do not like to get up and out of my room before 8:30 (the time the maids clean the rooms). I will...

My husband and I rented this room one night, and we rented it again and again for our trip, it was a nice room, and super great for the price... We enjoyed it!!! Nothing bad to say except the breakfast was terrible, cold biscuits and the gravy was really bad.

I go to this area often but this was my first time at this hotel and my last. I try so hard to not be a negative reviewer, only factual and realistic - so here are the facts: my room had a horrible, foul odor. Because I checked in on Thanksgiving, there was not a manager there, and the desk...

The hotel room was dirty and very worn, nothing like the pictures. I purchased two nights through Groupon, I should have read reviews and done more research first. The lobby was full of boxes and before we even got into our room we were being hit up for time shares in exchange for discounted show tickets. We finally got out...

I guess when a motel goes from a chain to an independent, one must wonder why. This is a case with the Island Drive Lodge. I stayed here because of a come on from the Bluegreen Time share Corporation - only to discover they had not really done much detective work with the property, My room was dated, but not...

The hotel room was so filthy we left. The floor looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in forever, there was mold growing on the a/c unit, the beds had stains on them, and there was mold in the bathtub. We were uncomfortable staying and we left.

Booked a three night stay, and contrary to the reviews it was a very good visit. The room was taken care of when we arrived, and they took care of the trash and towels each day while we were away in the park and cities. The breakfast was DELICIOUS as far as hotels are concerned. The staff at the desk...

We tried to save money, so we picked this motel. It has the name "island" so I mistakingly thought it was part of the new "island" area. This is an older motel. The room was about what you would expect for $69/night. The room smelled fine, everything seemed clean. The tub was very old and water stained and there was...
