    Dated motel, but close to campus

    This motel was close to campus, but was definitely dated. If you are looking for a plac to lay your head, but aren't worried about creature comforts, then this will do just fine - especially for the price.

  • 8.0.Very good

    It is a very convenient and clean facility. It is an older motel so don't expect it to more than it is. It was clean and a very nice room. I felt safe and would stay there again.

  • 8.0.Very good

    I was pleasantly surprised by this motel. The room I stayed in didn't smell at all, the bed was very comfortable, and shower ran hot almost instantly. AC worked well. After coming back for my second night I noticed fresh towels in the bathroom, which was another plus. They give you a card key for the door, which otherwise is always locked and very safe. All in all, definitely worth the price, and a step above other motels I've stayed in previously. Would recommend.

    Location good for UF

    We had another nice stay here to get my daughter back to school at a reasonable price. Close to UF campus. Could use some updating though, it is clean and the front desk folks are very nice and pleasant.
