STAY OUTSIDE!Posted Dec 3, 2013
Pros: the view is great
Cons: everything that is "inside" the hotel
Location: only stay here if you are on a manatee snorkeling trip and only need a place to lay your head
The ONLY positive thing I have to say about this hotel is the view! Don't depend on the restaurant being open, the room being cleaned or everything to work properly.

Pros: Location on the river and view from our balcony
Location: numerous state parks in the area and good eating
We enjoyed ourselves completely. The staff was friendly & helpful. It is definitely "old Florida". That' what makes a great place to stay.

nice sunsetPosted Oct 18, 2013
Pros: Only the sunset and checking out.
Location: All the national fast food places and local owned restaurants everywhere.
1st. room had no fridge or microwave. 2nd. room toilet leaked all over bathroom floor for two days we had no shower. Smelled bad. Day manager very rude when we asked for a different room. Be sure to ask for fridge and microwave if you want these. Forget bathrobes as advertised. They don't have them. Was built in the 40s and the whole place needed a lot of repairs. Be sure to ask for a room facing west for the sunset view.

View off balcony was great. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Great basic, clean hotel for the price. Location was good for manatee swims and tours of the springs.

Great location. The property itself is "down at the heels". It needs a total revamp. There are actually cheaper places to stay nearby but the rooms are basic, at least it was clean and the bed was adequate.

This is our 3rd stay at this hotel. Although it has bad reviews, our previous stays were ok. As other reviews state, this hotel could use some updating. This visit was the worst. Our pet friendly room was the worst room we've stayed in. The floor wasn't carpeted & looked as though carpeting had been removed & the underlying floor wasn't pleasant to look at. Linens smelled like cigarette smoke & maid didn't even make beds during the day. We came in to find our room half cleaned with the bathroom garbage bag in the sink. Most staff acted like they could care less if we were there or not & the bartender at the bar spent most of her time taking care of the "regulars" instead of us. This is definitely our last visit to this hotel. We encouraged our friends to stay here too & we were embarrassed at what we dealt with this visit.
