First of all, I hate to give this property a bad review based on the personality of the front desk staff. So friendly!!! I purchased this property on Priceline and paid (with taxes) $78. I was taking my son to USF for orientation. I called the property immediately to ask about rooms having inside corridors, because I would be staying... More
