Do not stay here...please. This place was horrible. Outside looked fine and lobby and when we got to the room, it looked like a crime scene. There was blood stains on the sheets...roaches everywhere, holes in the walls, plumbing did not work, leaks from the ceiling, absolutely positively the worst place ever. These people should NOT be in business. I... More

My wife and 2 kids stayed here a few weeks ago and had a great stay. We walked to Busch Gardens both days. They are going through a renovation and becoming a Quality Inn. The nice woman at the front desk told me that they are under new ownership and putting a lot of effort into turning the hotel around.... More

this hotel is a fire trap, and needs to be closed by authorities. it supports the drug dealers and prostitutes of the area. It is filthy. the smell is chemicals used to make methamphetamine (bathtub crank). Hotwire and Expedia should remove this hotel from their sites. Even the government would not use this place for persons fleeing hurricanes.

On the scary scale, this hotel is in the "Oh my god!" category. Our room was disgusting with filthy walls, floors, dirty sheets and big black marks on the towels. My husband and I travel a lot, and fortunately, when driving, we have found it prudent to bring cleaning supplies, bedding and towels, just in case, but even this was... More

Stayed in mid 2004, I was appalled at the lack of reviews on this motel on this site as it is so close to Busch Gardens. Avoid this dung heap at all costs. This place ranks as an "hourly" dive, not a place for tourists. Filthy, loud, and just plain dangerous. While we were there (4 nights, prepaid unfortunately) the... More

You are better off sleeping in your car at a rest area. This is the worst place I have ever stayed. The hotel was scary, very shabby, dirty, very loud, there were holes in the bathroom and kitchen plaster, the towels were so threadbare they looked like carwash rejects. We had to put shirts over the pillowcases because the sheets... More
