We stayed here after checking out the reviews and receiving a group rate as part of a local event. I should have gone with my instincts and spent an extra $30 to stay down the road at a competitor. The pictures tend to fool you because when you get to the actual property located next to busy Hwy 19, you instinctively realize they are trying to make an old property look better than it actually is. The swimming pool had green slime growing on the side of the walls, the pump didn't appear to be running because the water was stagnate in the deep end with a film of slime resembling baby oil floating on the surface?? The property is less than appealing with chipped paint and dirty surfaces. The room appears clean when you walk in with it's bright white sheets and dark-dark carpet. Look closely at the mold growing between the shower tiles and use your best judgement when it just doesn't smell good! If you shut the door to the bathroom, the a/c sound escalates because the return is shut off. We had to prop the door open to keep the room quiet. The hotel accommodates people living there with weekly rates. I traveled with my family and didn't feel safe or clean. Jumped up bright and early to get checked out quickly, and they charged me $20 for a pet that I didn't have, I think it's a gimmick because he folded up the invoice and handed it to me and didn't think I would look at it until I was gone. Never again, beware travelers.
