We went down for Biketoberfest 2013 and my buddy made the reservations. Never again will I let him do that, this place is a wreck! We stayed in a room fairly close to the indoor pool and front desk area and it wasn't very good. We did experience the ant issue as so many others have mentioned. Also the downstairs... More

Stayed 3 nights here for the Daytona 500. Knew we wouldn't be spending a lot of time in the room so we went the cheap route. Don't think i'll ever do that again. I left the lights on from the time of my arrival until i left, to keep the critters hiding. A buddy of mine didn't, and had to... More

The hotel was actually pretty bad. We stayed there over Valentine's weekend, as a romantic weekend getaway. So glad I brought my own sheets, pillows and comforter! Its under new ownership, and hopefully when they renovate it, they also renovate their staff too! Maybe its because they can't/won't give or offer anything to accommodate you. There were ants in our... More

We stayed here several years ago. It is now the joke of our Florida vacation!! It was simply the worst. The outside looked so nice. We had to get into the elevator and go down to what seemed like a dungeon. The moldy smell was so bad that I could not eat in the room. The room was layed out... More

The hotel was quite worn down and showed signs of a lot of partying in its past. Don't have high expectations. We were allowed to view our room before paying. Our room, bathroom and balcony was clean and no bugs. Some of the positives: The hotel would allow you to swim in the indoor pool after posted closed swimming hours... More
