When we arrived for a three night stay, we had to hand mop the floor of the room we were assigned. IF the tile floor had ever been mopped, it was with a filthy mop. The corners were unbelievably cruddy and black with grime. We had a room by the pool where a pole mounted security light had full access... More

Walls with holes. Water tank in corner of room behind a broken blind. Smoke detector dismantled & laying on shelf in cupboard (is this legal??). Asked... More

I stayed here last week when the 1000+ hotels in south Florida were sold out. The best thing I can say is it is adjacent to a McDonald's. I paid $125 plus tax for a $39 hotel room. I understand supply & demand....so I don't blame them. My non smoking room was very smoky.
