We had a great experience at the motel. We were delayed at home and couldn't hit the road as planned. The gentleman at check in was very patient and waited for us. He pointed out a few nice places to eat and told us to check out the pool. The pool has a tropical feeling nicely done with plants and...

When checking out I saw my reciept was for the amount of $156.80. I went to the gentlemen at the front desk whom stated the extra...

I understand this guest was upset even though I told her that I would get this straightened out. First let me say that I did not have a relationship with Hotels.com and I was surprised to see that she had a confirmation from them. When her booking came through we did not have the queen room that was booked thru...

If you want 5-star accommodations, room service & being pampered, then this is not for you. Go to Naples or Miami or New York instead. This place is so laid back, lush, verdant and friendly. It is an award winning tropical garden. The large kitchenette is fully stocked with cookware, tableware & utensils and very clean. You cook whatever you...

We love this motel. It is not only pet friendly but people friendly. It's charming. Very clean. The pool is surround by beautiful gardens. You can sit out back, enjoy the garden paths, use the grill and have quiet time. The huge gardens buffer the street noise. The rooms are equipped with everything you need. Bring your food, napkins and...

My fishing buddy made the reservations for us to stay here while we go fishing in the area. When I drove up I thought did I just go back into the 60's. I told him I was going to check the rooms before I get my luggage out of the car. I was pleasantly surprised. The facility is old but...

It is a nostalgic 50's style strip Motel but it is clean, comfortable and convenient. Don't expect much and you will be surprised too. Place even has a nice pool. Not posh but practical. Blink and you will miss it.

Very 50's retro, HOWEVER, very clean, on site managers do a great job on keeping up with the facility. Really surprised at the quality of appliances in kitchen, nice. Negative, maybe some blackout curtains would help. However pleasantly surprised.

Thank you for the review, I will add window treatments to the to do list. In the mean time I would suggest trying to book a center room as opposed to one of the four end rooms if you like to sleep in. I will also check the timers on the icecle lights. We leave them up through March for...

The Grove City Motel is Old Florida at its best. If you like friendly, helpful on-site managers, basic amenities and a beautiful heated pool, then the Grove City Motel might work for you. You are close to Placida, Boca Grande and Manasota Key. There is a dog park just minutes away and a breakfast-lunch restaurant next door.

Thanks for the nice words but to be honest we seem to attract really great guests here at Grove City Motel and that is what gives us a home away from home atmosphere. Joan and I feel more like we have old friends visiting then we are working most of the time.
