My wife had reservations for July 2-5, 2014. When we arrived we went to the room (which took a while as it was upstairs and we both had bad feet. Me gout and wife broken toe). When we got in the room the comforter on one bed was thrown on the dresser (which had broken drawer fronts) and there was... More

It is wonderful to see an American run Inn. The service was great. The rooms are remodeled and very clean. Yes, it is an older Inn but we slept great. We always stay here when we come to Milton. The prices are reasonable, why pay an outrageous price to get a good nights sleep.

The room was large however dated and shabby, the bed had a thin mattress set on two small single beds covered in plastic, one power outlet... More

I suppose you get what you pay for. Lots of full time residents lend a less than savory feel to the place. Service is fine, but you can tell they deal with a troublesome clientele. You must check out your towels from the front desk and pool towels as well. Laundry facility is in really bad shape, rooms look nothing... More

Stopped three different locations on Interstate for a room. Prices were $89 to $129 a night.. I paid $69 a night. Fresh seafood right next door and across the road. A bar on the other side. Ate, drank, relaxed and enjoyed a great weekend in the pool, as usual...some people have expensive taste but shallow pockets. I will stay again,... More

Needed a convenient location to "park" overnight as we had to leave early am. Outside of property too terrible, a little rundown looking as older properties often are. Room was dingy, outdated, and not cleaned well, made me feel a little "icky". Upon arrival, found a half filled beer can on the armoire next to the TV, cigarette burn marks... More

My family and I were on our way to Disney. Decided to book a room for the night by phone and rest up. I understand with short notice with a family of six you can't be particular. So we drive up to the hotel and I am already noticing people hanging around outside the rooms. Mind you there is nothing... More

Dissapointed to stay at this hotel .If you just want low budget then this is what you will get for. The week that I stay there, saw 2 drug bust, one at midnight and woke me up during my sleep. Wi-fi is very slow. Bed is pretty tough and pillows are horrible.
