    Exceptional 10.0
    Extremely Satisfied
    This was one of the roomiest hotel rooms I’ve stayed in for quite some time. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. We stay here for a baseball tournament and despite the craziness of all the teams the staff had smiles and were friendly.

    Once a year we stay here to visit a doctor st the University of Florida. Love love the pillows even looking to buy some for our home. The bed was a little hard for my taste. The breakfast and waitress were fanominal! The bath room was way too small.
