The staff was friendly and helpful pertaining to local attractions. Our room was very clean and items in the room were up to date. Perfectly located, where US41 intersects I75, you can find most types of food within walking distance. (including coffee and donuts next door).

This place is very cute and charming on the outside. SADLY,the online pics were very deceiving.We had a pet friendly room with tile floors which was great for our dogs. You couldn't walk on them bare foot unless you wanted your feet covered with sand and funk. I later had to use a hand towel to get some liquid up from the floor the dogs has spilled and when I wiped the floor the hand towel was filthy.I soaked it for 2 days in the sink and it never came out.It was damn near black. We were shook! We knew then the floor hadn't been cleaned in weeks.Not mopped at all.I wish I had taken a photo of the towel for proof now. Our room wouldn't cool either.So after about 1.5 hrs I called the front desk and they came & checked it out & then changed out the unit right there with us in the room sweating our tails off.Not once in our 3 day and 4 night stay did they check on us for clean towels, clean linens, toilet tissue, trash cans liners or anything. (no do not disturb sign provided or used to deter daily check for assistance) No mini toiletries were provided which I had never seen before ever.You also had to pay for ice, also not seen.The staff who changed the unit were nice and very sociable and so was the front desk lady.We never seen her but she was nice and very helpful when told we were from out of town.She also kept me up to date when I called before my arrival to check on the status in the area. Nice big field for dogs to run. Not certified, pool cant use i
