It was a treat to go back in time. This is a clean with cold A/C motel with 4 acres right on the Suwannee river. I went down and hung out on the boardwalk at night and in the early morning for about an hour each and let my dog run free down there since no one was around, or...

Made reservations for a two double bed room for 80 per night. When I got there that roombwas not available. Could only give king room with a charge of 130. Needless to say I did not stay but drove on.

In 100 degree tempature our windows were open when we arrived AC was off making our room smell bad and very hot. The dock was in terrible conditions could not leave boat in water. Also check your credit card...

While this hotel is considered "Old Florida", it needs some major updating. Looks like some renovating started years back but never finished. There is junk all over the back property. We chose this property because of the boat launch. The bed comforter's didn't appear to have been changed in years. Made us very uncomfortable. It's a shame, this is the...

The location of the motel is perfect but the motel is nasty! We arrived Friday evening to find the windows had been left open in our room & it was about 97 degrees outside. Needless to say there were insects inside our room. It took all night for the room to cool down. The room was disgusting, very old and...

Thank you for the critical review.The windows are kept open only during the morning when housekeeping is being conducted and the cross ventilation helps freshen up the room.The windows also have built in screens and they prevent any insects from coming in .We are remodeling all the rooms as you witnessed.

Clean room, nice swimming pool, bbq area out back and fishing off the dock.. Friendly staff, Nice and quiet only thing it was missing was breakfast. Nice little place instead of a big hotel with hundreds of people.

Clean rooms, friendly staff, pretty location right on the Suwannee River. The place just needs a little TLC. The buildings and grounds could use a little sprucing up. It has character. I would stay again.
