The Central Motel is a great "mom & pop" motel located on highway 41 with easy access to the 46 mile long Withlacoochee bike trail, the best bike trail in the state of Florida! Located on the property is the Cinnamon Stick restaurant, a great breakfast & lunch place. It's the best value for the money of any motel in...

We stay at this motel while biking the bike trail. It is not a fancy 5 star hotel/motel but it is very clean and the staff is very nice. The prices are amazing. The bike trail is directly behind the motel.

Came from Brooklyn as the grand-kids wanted to swim with the manatees. The kids enjoyed the motel more then the manatees, they spent half the day at the pool, we ate lunch at Cinnamon Sticks (The Restaurant on the Motel Lot) sat on the balcony and enjoyed the sunset. My family loved the motel. very quiet, also fully loaded. BIG...

Room was old and in desperate need of renovation. Furniture was chipped and looked like 2nd hand Goodwill store purchase. Mold around sink, toilet and bathtub. When my fiancee went to ask for another room she was told it'll be another $20. Why should we pay more when we were given a rundown room. Checked out and went to Quality...

My family I come to visit lives in Ocala, however I make the long drive to Inverness just so I can stay at the Central Motel. They have the nicest rooms around at a fantastic price. the workers are amazing. Even the Maintaince man goes out of his way to make sure you are comfortable during your stay.

This is my second year to stay at the Central Motel. My family has been staying annually for about eight years. The CM continually improves itself such as upgrading the tv cable selection, installing new flat screen televisions and since last year they have quite obviously improved the internet. Thank you CM! Rooms are extremely clean. Rooms in the two...

We had to find a place to stay for a few weeks in Inverness. We were looking for a clean, comfortable and reasonable place to stay. Central Motel was all those things. Also conveniently located next to Cinnamon Sticks, a good local restaurant for lunch and breakfast. Staff is friendly and the price was more reasonable despite being Florida's 'high...

I stop here once per year. This year my visit coincided with the Daytona 500 and I could not book a room on Saturday even though I had a reservation for Sunday. Central is clean, well located and convenient. Best of all it is a great value for the money.

Everytime I stay here I can see updates, recently stayed in a king suite. Great price. Since my last stay they added a table by the door, a computer desk, office chair, new pictures. And more. Can't wait to see what's new on my next stay. All the staff is great from the manager to the maintenance man. And they...

While I wouldn't rate this five stars, I would have no problem staying here again. The rooms are clean and reasonably quiet, the employees are friendly and the price is right. I prefer staying in small "ma and pa" type local motels when traveling, and this one fits the bill. Conveniently, the Withlacoochee State bike trail runs right behind the...
