    Decent place to stay the night

    The motel was clean and reasonably kept up, but I wouldn’t stay there as a single woman-with no partner with me. A lot of veterans and workers stayed there and the few women residents? stood outside to smoke and yell across at each other. There were a lot of friendly loud people milling around most of the night outside the door. The room had fresh paint & clean sheets, but the shower/tub hot water dial handle was broken and just dangled from the big protruding bolt. I worked for a while trying to get water from the shower. If the proceeds all go to homeless veterans, it was worth the price for the room. I’m all for worthy causes.

      I'm a district manager for a restaurant chain in Lake City and visit here twice a month. I always stay at Motel 8 not just because of the price but because for the value you will not find a cleaner room, a better nights sleep and a more caring staff. Yes, its true it doesnt look like much from the outside but as they say "do not judge a book by its cover." You will be pleasantly surprised by how good the rooms are. I dont understand these people who write these ridiculous, nasty reviews because I have never had any issue with this hotel. No bugs, no stains on my sheets, great a/c's, nice flat screens with Roku, and although people who are there long term do converse outside they are nice people and very courteous of others. I know for a fact the hotel buys dozens of brand new sets of sheets and pillow cases every month. Every time I have been there I find a gift basket of drinks, snacks and hygiene products waiting for me in my room and there are always mints on the pillow. I like the staff and the owner because they give an extreme personalized touch. They know everyone there and they treat their guests with respect and friendliness. You are not just a signature. You are a welcomed guest.
