Pool time.
We stayed in room 142 in front of the pool because we had 3 grandchildren with us. That was the perfect spot for them. The only complaint i have is there is a seating area between our room and the pool. I wish that could close it off the same hours the pool is closed. Only because people are so inconsiderate. Guests were out there talking at till midnight and came out about six thirty the next morning. I don't mind them using. But keep it down. Some people are still trying to sleep.

Could have been better.
When checking in the person at the front was talk to someone else instead of going over things with me. Just told me to sign the paper and gave me the room key. Didn't tell us what time breakfast was or any other specifics. We only were staying one night to sleep and wanted to grab beeakfast. Room could have been cleaned better better. Found dead flies on night stand, floor, and tv stand. Bath tub was nasty.

OK
Room was clean and every thing worked. Place seems like a pretty popular place for low income full time residents. Hard to get to room with bags of trash, dirty clothes and bicycles blocking the way. Not to mention crowds of sketchy looking people hanging out in the parking lot.

Black Mold above your Bed
The roof was Roof was full of black mold, the Airconditioning smelled bad, the shower roof had black mold as well, we decided to sleep there, but got out of there without a shower, because we wanted to leave that unhealthy environment

Trucker Fl Vacay
Hotel was clean and comfortable. They have abundant semi parking, which is fantastic for us that drive semis.. Hot tub and pool were clean and open. They have pizza you can order between 16:00-18:00. It’s pretty good. Only thing my wife didn’t like was there wasn’t a plug in by the bed. But no big deal

Two-Night Stay.
Basic older Hotel. Musty smell in room upon arrival. Nice location to Highway. Deep Pool - good for adults but I would think not for small children. Basic small breakfast still being served.
