I walked in and walked right out! Unbelievable. I don't know how this "hotel" is still in business. It was disgusting. There was a disgusting fish smell in the hallway. I didn't even make it to my room. I refused. I went back to the front desk and cancelled my reservation. DO NOT stay here. Seriously, you're better off investing... More

We walked in and there were bums walking around everywhere! We were in a not so good part of town. Very ghetto and run down. We got to our room and all the way down the hallway it smelled like pot, our room was grossly hot, the bathroom had cockroaches in it, the shower and bathtub had thick sheets of... More

Room was clean enough, service at desk was OK. Did not get ready in time for breakfast, so can't comment. Nothing extraordinary, nothing bad to report. Decent place for a one night stay. Was in a quiet area not far from the highway.

Do not stay here! An old Florida hotel can be a great place to stay, this place is a filthy pigsty. Our room was 101...we had to use the cell phone to see the keyhole because the hall lights were out in front of our room. There were insects on the bathroom floor, god knows what splashed on the brass... More

This is a low-cost hotel. You are not going to get 5 star accommodations, but you will get a clean room to sleep and shower in. I stay here 2-3 times per month and have found that along with being a great inexpensive stay, the staff is ready, able and willing to address any and all concerns you may have.

Should have know when the clerk offered us a room for $60 CASH but we were desperate after finding so many filled hotels. Cockroaches in the bathroom, no blanket on the bed....room was so bad that I slept in my clothes.

The new management there was responsive to our requests immediately and solved our issue. For this area, here on business... all my needs were met for $50 TOTAL, tax included! That's terrific! My partner and I had two comfortable double beds, HBO on our TV with a remote that worked, nice warm water in the shower, FREE WIFI and clean... More
