The counter was barely large enough for the provided coffee maker and ice bucket so you couldn't really use it. There was no table to eat on. There wasn't even a coffee table. They provide a pack-n-play, but not a... More

This is not my first visit to this hotel, although it has been a while. I booked this hotel specifically for the indoor pool so I can swim winter time. Pool was not warm at all. Had to use the Jacuzzi. Breakfast, not the best, with limited choice. Everything else is pretty much the same. Staff is friendly, and room... More

This hotel is clean, and a good place to stay prior to medical appointments at Shands. They have a nice breakfast area and cookies at check in. In door pool and Cracker Barrel with walking distance. Staff is very pleasant . Newly renovated.

Absolutely fantastic! Perfect location, great facilities, and wonderful staff who were willing to help with any questions we had. As international travellers with many questions about road rules (driving on the opposite road), different foods (I miss the s'mores) the staff were amazing at giving us the best advice and making us feel very welcome. We will definitely stay here... More
