We'll, as you can see there are some bad reviews from this hotel...all to do with the inconvenience of their remodeling. We booked here after talking to the front desk and being assured our stay would be peasant...and the we're right. While there is still much to be done...they were honest about how far along the remodel was....and the things... More

Being under construction is no excuse for the state of this facility! There is no reason why the place couldn't have been cleaned throughout the day, at least in high traffic areas. Spills and garbage I saw the day of arrival was still evident when we checked out. I booked through Hotwire so had no idea that there was ongoing... More

We have one more night left in this hotel. Last night was miserable. The room was so damp that the floor, sheets and pillows were wet. When we asked the front desk about it, they pretty much said there was nothing they could do. Other hotels I have stayed in put damp rid in the room. We are here on... More

I just stayed at this hotel for the first time. I travel to Tallahassee frequently but have never stayed here. The hotel is currently under construction so the lobby was devoid of chairs and frankly...everything. The check in clerk was nice but did not tell me about the free breakfast - I had to find that out later in the... More

We stayed here one night on our way through. They are currently under construction but it honestly doesn't affect your stay. It will be beautiful when they are finished. The room was spacious and clean. Beds were a bit creaky but we slept fine. We did not eat the breakfast- in a hurry to get back on the road.

When I made my reservation for this hotel I did not know that it was under construction. I didn't find that out until after I had made my reservations. I then learned that it was under construction but was reassured that all was well, just the lobby was under construction. The first room that they gave us had dirty towels... More

I am very disappointed about my experience this weekend. I agree with all the previous negative comments. What ever brand you are under my confidence that we will have a good experience has been very tarnished. Your staff is only process focused and not guest focused. It is not the idea of renovation but lack of respect for your clients.... More

I stayed one night this past weekend to attend a sporting event with my son. I can understand construction but it seems they could make a little of an effort to clean up after themselves. In addition to the lobby being complete torn to pieces, the elevators could use a daily cleaning after they are done for the day. I... More

Everything about my stay here was awful. I was staying as part of a wedding party and from the get go things just went wrong.

I thoroughly enjoy visiting under construction hotels so when I got to the cabot lodge you can imagine my enthusiasm. The room came standard with a window to look out, it also included 4 walls and limited edition custom upholstery. I didn't plan on sleeping because I had so many construction features to see so comfort was not important to... More
