We stopped overnight on our way back to Florida, and chose this hotel because of the discount we clipped from a travel magazine. The room was $69 per night, and was a good value for the convenience. The staff was courteous and readilly accepted the coupon (unlike the hotel next door).
When we entered the first room, we immediately discovered a strong smell of smoke even though it was supposed to be a non-smoking room (302). We were given another room immediately after our request, and it did not have the same problem (312).
After spending a few hours winding down from a long ride, we began to notice that the room could use a bit more attention by the cleaning and maintenance workers. Mostly it was in the form of wall smudges, cracked furniture, and carpet stains. The beds and bath were clean, so there was no immediate concern.
Overall, I would say in the day and age this is the type of accomodation you can expect for a cost of under $70. A clean place to lay your head, and tub without mold to shower in. Worked for me.
