some good, mostly disappointing
the good: convenient to the motorway, clean, fast free WiFi, decent restaurant. the bad: the hotel was incredibly hot, with no way of controlling the temperature per room. the window barely opened at all, and when it did, there was no bug screen, and a torrent of pests flew in. also, the loo design was very poor. with the toilet seat placed literally touching the wall, there was no way to sit comfortably. there was plenty of room to lay it out differently, and it would have been much better. there's plenty of better hotels in this price range. keep looking

Wifi is a joke--and the staff knows it.
I stayed her for three nights in January 2016. I was able to get on the wifi for only about 15 minutes the first night before the system overloaded an kicked me off. I never did get back on again. I complained to two different staff members, who commiserated with me, as they know the owner of the hotel does not believe that the Wifi is an important amenity in hotels today. Um, well, er...no. This is 2016. Each time I complained, the nice people at the desk reset the modems entirely to allow me to try to get back on. Of course, this has the effect of kicking EVERYONE in the hotel off the internet to allow me to try to get back in the queue. The first time it worked, but not the second time. I gave up. I went to a Starbucks to write this review, as I couldn't get on the Internet. So if you care about wifi, avoid this place. Otherwise, it's a pretty good value. Facilities are clean and tidy and proper for a hotel of this sort, and for families who don't need wifi, it's not bad. I would say, however, the breakfast is also something of a joke. Nothing but carbohydrates: bread, cereal, donuts, and kind of soggy waffles. Might be okay for sugar-addicted kids, but not a proper breakfast by any stretch of the imagination. Oh, well, there were some oranges that were pretty good: this is Florida, after all....
