Floors were dirty. I had to move a nightstand to access outlets and it was filthy. Under the bed had not been vacuumed in ages. Overall ambiance is that of a welfare hotel. Included breakfast was a joke. Cold cereal and toast. For 100.00$ a night I expect better than that.

I can't imagine who could have said anything good about this place. It was dark and old and run down. It reminded me of an old New York tenement. The bathtub was not only dirty but had rust around the drain and metal fixtures. None of my family even wanted to use the shower. I tried calling the front desk... More

Looking for a good place in town and saw this listing near Busch Gardens. Had reserved a room for two nights as I had a weekend licensing training. Cut it short after finding stains in the room and smelly carpet. People were smoking right outside of our room in an awkwardly-placed table in the semi-covered pool are. Bathtub had dirt... More
