Hotel was located in an area not in the city, which I like, but with easy access to surrounding attractions, businesses and conference venues. Not the prettiest rooms but stores and restaurants we're near by. Access to turnpikes and highways was easy from this location.

It was a quiet hotel but not very modern or clean. Our room was on 4th floor and was dirty but hotel(s) in the area were booked. Lights didn't work, shower had mold, comforter was stained so we removed from the bed. I wouldn't stay here again but for one night-it worked

Booked because it was close to airport for early morning flight. First room was a king and smelled musty so we asked to switch because we were two adults and two kids. 2nd room was also very damp and musty but at this point we had two hungry kids. Turned on the AC and hoped that it would work but...

Leaving on an early flight out of Sanford, we stayed at the best western. Room was clean, comfortable and convenient. The staff was very helpful in finding places that delivered food. A free shuttle for transportation to the airport was supplied.

The pool is just off the road which is ice cold. The hallways and rooms smell like carpet that's never dried, the bathtub faucet handle was so loose it was hard to keep the temperature. The staff were very helpful, and wanting to go out of their way. The main lobby was very presentable.

Chose this hotel because they offer 24 hour shuttle service to Sanford Airport. Pleasant staff at check in, breakfast and the shuttle. Close to multiple eating spots and not too far from shopping. Clean, bright room with micro wave, fridge and a large TV. Nice high ceiling gave the room a spacious feel. Only negative was the room was the...

We stayed at this hotel when flying Allegiant Air on our way to and from Orlando. A basic and older hotel with friendly staff and very comfortable beds, that was kept well maintained and clean. Although I was able to hear the traffic through the windows in the evening when the kids were trying to fall asleep, it was not...

This just seems to be one of those places where the staff just are not into their jobs. It wasn't particularly clean and the staff were not very friendly. The exercise room is a joke. They had a treadmill which did not work; a stationary bike which would just shut down when in use, and an elliptical which was the...
