Please, stop the negative reviews, they're unwarranted. Do you need to or want to pay for a lot of overhead,ie: spa, bar, restaurant? This place is NOT for you. As a business traveler, YES, It's perfectly fine or short family trip. Bottomline, it's clean, has modern room amenities and is well maintained, The staff are exemplary and the FREE breakfast...

I sucked this one up but have learned a valuable lesson. Do not stay here. And yes this was a hospital and looks like it when thou get off of the elevator. OMG this place needs to be shut down by the Florida Health Department. Might be a good place for the homeless or close to it. Couldn't turn your... More

Just back from here it was a nice stay clean really big room nothing fancy and no issues that some of the other reviews stated. If your hoping to have a elegant five star hotel experience then go and pay five star prices somewhere else because this place is not for you.

When we checked in, we were surprised at the comfortable quarters. The single king sized bed was one of the most comfortable beds I had ever slept in. Plain furniture but adequate for storage. Small shower stall but water was strong and effective.

I booked a room over the phone, easy and quick, and was able to check-in the same day. The front desk staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the area when helping me with directions. The beds were comfortable and the blackout shades made it easy to snooze, even well into the afternoon. The free breakfast had a decent selection, but... More

This "hotel" used to be a hospital 20 years ago and still looks like it. It has all the coziness of a 1970s Nursing Home. My biggest complaint was there was NO HOT WATER IN THE SHOWER! I let it run for 15 minutes changed the handle from left to right and it was still ICE COLD.I moved the bedside... More

My 3rd stay; always clean; always nice, helpful people in front, although not always speedy. There were some issues with our key card, but I think it was because we checked in after midnight. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable, and yes, the bathroom was a little small, but not overly so. My suggestion to them would be... More

I Stayed there during layovers on my way out of the country. The place is ok but you will need to order food for delivery as the surroundings are not safe at all. There are other, better choices around the airport that have restaurant withings waling distance in safe areas.

We checked in for one night from Saturday to Sunday. The room was fine, clean and lots of space. The beds are comfortable, seem to be new mattresses. The breakfast was free and that's exactly what it looked like. There was 5 different kind of cereal so if you love that kind of breakfast you are in the right place.... More

I had people coming from out of town to stay at this dump and I should have done more research. My poor mother and father in law really were uncomfortable here along with the rest of the party and when we told them we wanted to check out and not have the rest of the nights billed to us they...
