The only thing we enjoyed about the property was reliable, Internet and television and a decent mattress. I don’t think we’ve ever stayed at a more basic hotel. We were not able to get ice, there was no hairdryer or coffee maker and the room had a stale odor to it. In the morning the TV wouldn’t turn on. This property is way overpriced for what you get. I wish we weren’t so desperate because many nearby properties were booked!

My husband and I left Punta Gorda after Hurricane Ian to seek Internet and a hot shower, that we got. In reading the reviews I was comfortable booking this on the road. The ladies at the front desk was very nice and helpful, she put us in room 206 said that was one of the better ones, well the bathroom looked like it had not bee clean in weeks very dirty, the bed for me was very firm I'm a side sleeper so I was not comfortable. I had to call for Internet password, no channel guide no Ice. The good thing is the shower was amazing hot and great water pressure. We ate at the Mexican restaurant across the street it was very good.

No frills delight
We just needed a place to stay over night on our way home. This place was older but it was well kept. The room was clean, bed was comfortable. The pillows were full size and nice and firm. We slept peacefully here and had a good night's rest. Customer service is also very nice here.
