We stayed in Starke Florida because it is a short drive to The University of Florida. Staying at The Best Western in Starke is perfect for going to a game at UF as it is alot cheaper than staying in Gainesville. The Best Western in Starke Florida has been recently remodeled and looks great! The breakfast area has been enlarged......

Housekeeping was attentive. Grounds were well kept. Breakfast was "basic" but it had plenty. Pool was closed for the season, but the outdoor amenities were a nice plus. (patio, gazebo,...

Driving from North Carolina to SW Florida, we thought we'd overnight in Jacksonville, but several hotels we tried were fully booked, so we continued on to Starke. So glad we did! The Best Western was less expensive, easy to find and an excellent place to stay. It is freshly renovated, clean and attractive. The front desk staff gave us a...

Just awful. Called ahead for a room. Then told the room was gone. I was just 15 minutes away. Only smoking rooms available. The one I took the lock was broken. Ended up in a stinking second floor room. No help from the desk. I was exhausted or would have left

Driving from Ohio to Clearwater, Fl. Made it to Starke. Happy with our choice. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. And our kitty appreciated the privacy. They are going through some updates which should make it even better.

Wow this hotel is so nice! Everything is so well taken cared off! Staff was very accommodating, room was super clean, beds were comfortable. I loved that the TV remote was sanitized! Everything was in great condition and it felt the room had barely been stayed in before - I usually don't get that feeling when staying in a hotel!...

Thank you for your positive review. We are very glad that you were comfortable and enjoyed your stay. Little details like sanitized remotes sets us apart from the competition. We are a convenient option when visiting Camp Blanding, and our military business tells us so! Hope to see you soon!

Motel was clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly. We just spent one night there. Arrived early, so we had time to tour the town and eat in a local restaurant, before retiring. We would stay there again.
