If you don't know the difference of a hotel and a motel, this place is probably not for you. If you're a Hilton brat or a Marriott snob, again, not for you. However, if you're looking for a decent place to rest your head, that's convenient to the highway and ft white area, and you do not expect perfection, then give it a shot. Im glad we did. Jean was extremely accommodating, the rooms were large with big fridge, wet bar, dining table. I was pleasantly surprised. Is it perfect? No. But was it clean and convenient, yes. Would definitely stay here again.

Staffs were friendly and helpful. The facility and the room are clean. However: 1- It's located in a food desert. Few restaurants and groceries stores, no Uber Eats ... 2- Buildings are old, awful odor emitting from sinks ...
