I was unable to use my Roku stick because the TV's are programmed to not allow a change in the video input. The in-room coffee was the worst I've ever had.

Fair2.0 / 5
Sadly we did not have a positive experience. We stopped here on our way through town coming home from vacation. On the way up we stopped at the Sleep Inn in Ocala and had a positive experience. Knowing that, we stopped at this Sleep Inn on the way home. Check in was easy, although the lady at the front desk was not rude, she was not very welcoming either. After we settled in, we went for dinner. When we came back, our room key didn't work. We went to the front desk and the lady from the front desk was outside smoking a cigarette and we had to wait for her to come back in. she gave us another key, which also didn't work. So back down again and she called a woman from housekeeping, Mary and she was lovely. She couldn't get us in either and said the battery died on our door. We went down and waited in the lobby while she tried to fix it. I'm not sure what she had to do, but she finally got us in the room. When we first got to the room, we had a few perishable food items we put in the mini fridge. When we got back from dinner, the fridge was not cold anymore. We did not bother calling the front desk, we just got some ice from the machine and put in over the items. So overall, it wasn't horrible, but it also was not terrific.

Fantastic staff, beware the pull out bed!
Fantastic staff, conveniently located near shopping and dozens of chain restaurants, easy access to UF and freeways. Workout room was clean and pool was great; smallish but empty. Only issues were: used bar of soap and washcloth in shower upon arrival and ridiculously uncomfortable sofa bed. (I know sofa beds generally are, but we've stayed at hotels with nice ones. This was not a nice one. Fortunately, my daughter was able to share with me so it wasn't a major issue, but could be if you're relying on that for sleeping arrangements.)
