There are really no words to describe my experience at this place. My friend was here for medical treatment and arrived two days before I did. I would have moved immediately but she was in pain and was not up to moving. To say the place is under construction is an understatement. The only good thing I can say about... More

(Rooms nearer the front office seem to have stronger signal.) The lighting is dim, and there are no desks and there are too few electrical outlets. It appears that all... More

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
