Clean, newly remodeled. Only concern is the door wasn't sealed on the bottom and there was an 1/4-1/2 inch gap on the bottom so air was let in/it's a saftey hazard. Not the nicest location but great for a one night stop!

Had an very early flight in the morning so stayed near to the airport. The price was descent and rooms looked recently refurbished. Special mention to Imran on the front desk who was amazingly helpful.

We stayed here for just one night after a later evening flight, and we would definitely return. Very easy to find from the Sanford/Orlando airport, even in the dark. Only about 10 minutes away, the hotel rooms are very clean and the staff at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. Very close to the toll road, and close... More

I had an early flight out of Sanford Airport after staying in Lake City. I picked this hotel mostly because it was closest to the airport and the price was reasonable. As a woman traveling alone a secure hotel is important. In the pictures the room looked liked they opened from the interior. They all opened to the outside although... More

After reading glowing reviews, I decided to give it a try for one night. The whole place was rundown, sheets had holes, carpet looked dirty....(ground in dirt) and worse of all, the toilet was loose and it was leaking around the base. I couldn't find another hotel that had availability. I didn't feel safe at this hotel; they posted a... More

If your flying from Sandford Airport and are worried about catching your flight this is a good reasonably priced place to stay. The double rooms are a good size (two double beds) with shower; tv and fridge and the hotel also has a pool and grounds overlooking a large lake. Best of all it only 3 miles from the airport...
