Very austere rooms, inviting decor missing. This hotel is best if you want to enjoy the Tavares night club scene and you want to bring a pet. Breakfast on offer was a joke about the same as something you could buy at 7-11. Best thing about the hotel was the balcony overlooking Lake Dora.

The room was very spacious with small kitchenette, table and chairs, a huge closet and bathroom. Very clean. Balcony overlooking lake, boats and planes taking off from lake. Walkable restaurants. One minus for us was loud music from a bar across road but it could not be heard in the room and stopped at 8 pm. We would definitely stay again.

Great location. Walk to lots of restaurants. Steps away from cafe to have complementary cooked breakfast to your table. Waterfront tiki bar. This is our second visit. We will come back.

Very nice but could have used new blinds and some more furniture or something to stop the echo in the room.
