This place reminded me of the hotels that my mom and dad used to take me to in the 70's. It was a nice throwback, add a Flat-screen TV (did not work) and microwave.... It had a few upgrades, but needs many more....Better linens and toiletries would go a long way to making it seem as if it were a...

Cute older style exterior and in good location if visiting Wauchula but better off staying in the Bedt western 3 miles up the road in Bowling Green. Rooms were dark and damp. A/c was full on and the temp control did not work do it was off and on only. Door knob was literally falling off the bathroom door. There...

We stayed in this place 2 years ago. We were in the front building and paid about $70. Since we were doing the Sebring 12 Hour Race, this price was reasonable even in light of what you got in the room. It was clean but dated & broken furniture, very thin, chintzy towels, a paper bath mat. This year, we...

My sister and I stayed here as we were driving on a long trip to start our vacation with other relatives. We basically wanted inexpensive, clean and free wi-fi and that's what we got. We were happy to have a mini-fridge and a microwave in the room because we just needed the basics and our plan was to drive straight...

If you're looking for luxury, this isn't the place for you. But then, if you're looking for luxury, this isn't the budget for you either! The motel is clean, the staff is friendly, and the bed is comfortable. This is generally what one needs when it comes to a budget motel. There was a mini-fridge in the room (a necessity...

I took my nephew to LegoLand and saw this motel on my way home and decided to stop and spend the night. To my pleasant surprise, we were welcomed and received with exceptional customer service. Our room was very clean with a fully equipped kitchen. It was large enough for us to get comfortable and get a good night’s sleep.The...

We had to stay in this motel because it was late and kind of the only option, but except for the fact that the owners are very friendly we were not statisfied. Everything was really old and a bit dirty, there was no wifi and the kitchen was unusable. I wouldn't recommend this motel...

We stayed here on the last night of a cycling trip from Jax Beach to Sarasota, FL. The location on our route was perfect, but beyond that, it was a disappointment. We walked into the lobby after cycling all day and it was stiflingly hot and the girl was behind a very unfriendly Plexiglas wall. The AC didn't work at...

The only reason I only gave it 3 starts is because of the lack of updated electrical plugs and limited WiFi access. The Motel is VERY clean, customer service is wonderful, and the place is very comfortable. I was working in Wauchula for a week and because of the Sebring races hotel rooms were limited. I decided to try the...
