HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 9 April 2017

This modestly priced motel is well-located for tourists, close to Ocala National Forest, Silver Springs, the town of Micanopy, Marjorie Rawlings State Park and much more. It is very clean, and while the rooms are in the process of being remodeled this created absolutely no problem for us. We were in an un-remodeled room, but found it very clean and...

The staff was courteous and helpful. There is a limited menu for room service but whatever had was delish. The Wi-Fi was spotty at first but then it straightened out and we were able to do what was needed online. I would stay here again happily.

Older motel but recently had a full makeover. Staff is really good and the rooms are clean and up to date. What else is there to say. I will stay again BUT DO NOT MAKE PHONE RESERVATIONS THRU THEIR CORPORATE STAFF - CALL THE MOTEL DIRECTLY OR DO IT ONLINE. The HoJo corporate procedures for making reservations are completely overbearing...

Overall the property was very nice. Most of the rooms appear to be nicely re-done. However, there are some that need work and they are not pleasant to stay in. Management addressed our concerns promptly and to our satisfaction. Would give them another try in the furture.
