This might have been the worst hotel / motel I have ever stayed at. The place reeks of mildew. There were small bugs around. Luckily no bed bugs. The entire ceiling of the bathroom was collapsing from a water leak on the floor above. I dealt with it, because I had to. There were no other vacancies around my area....

This place was very much in need of a refresh. The bathroom had rust and cigarette burn on the tub. The bed sagged in the middle. Carpet thread bare. Ugh...

After reading some of the reviews, I was really nervous coming here. I was pleasantly surprised after our stay. We stayed here to go to a Jaguars game and everything is fine. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast is adequate. The weather was nice and we were able to walk to and from the stadium with no problems....
