I tried to book this hotel on Tripadvisor, but never got a response to my question about reserving one of the refurbished rooms that previous reviewers had advised. So I booked directly with the motel at the exorbitant rate of $127, which I thought might be justified due to the previous reviews. My wife is very sensitive to mildew and...

Filthy, very old and warn out motel. No MARINA. I would even let my wife stay there. Afraid she would come home with fleas and ticks. Walked in room then back to the office to give the key back. I DID NOT AND COULD NOT even stay the 5 min's. In the room. Management blames the house keeper. I BLAME...

Dear guest Please read your comments,you are talking about your wife.The reason you did not want to stay was the boat ramp.The property with the ramp got sold without our knowledge. I would never blame my house keepers as they are very good and clean.You did not want any other guest to have their pets ,yet you brought yours.Its better...

We had some business in the area and liked the fact that this Motel was right on the River and had grills and a Pavilion. The room was clean and the owner very nice and accommodating. We would definitely stay again if ever in the area

1st 5 minutes in the room, go to use the bathroom and there is dried feces under the lid of the toilet. Then the coffee maker doesn't work. Then the TV remote is broke. Then We killed at least 3 spiders IN the room and the door jam outside was covered in cob webs. The toilet wouldn't flush, had to...

Highly advise not going here, overrated in the advertisement, beware this is not what it seems. No marina, no kitchen as seen in the picture, poor quality room; Internet for my iPad not available, lap top internet reception extremely poor. Hair in bathroom, toilet and sink unclean, dead cockroach in bathtub, surprise visit from palmetto bug after my shower.

Made reservations a month in advance. Stopped in and loved the location. This motel is right on the Suwanee River so you can see boats going up and down. Rustic cabins nearest the river need more cleaning and a little TLC. Ended up not staying here but going down the road. Couldn't get onto the internet here. They have a...

It wasn't the best of places, it wasn't the worst of places. Been in cleaner places, been in dirtier. Been in Hampton Inns with more road noise. Wifi was weak and slow. Didn't get reception two rooms down from office. Everything in room was worn but pretty much clean.

My girlfriend and I spent the weekend at this little place. Depending on your standards, you will either enjoy or you won't. If you are expecting a Hampton Inn or a Hilton, then you are out of luck. This is a beautiful property overlooking the Suwanee River, the hotel is older, and has not been renovated in some time, and...

Hope to see you soon. Happy new year.

This was the only place available. One room left in all of western Fla. It wasnt just that they allowed our 2 labs to stay. It wasnt just about the room ..but the owner Paresh was the sweetiest and most accommodating person we have had the pleasure of meeting. Thank you Paresh!!
