“NO WAY - DON'T STAY”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012 via mobile

First of all I have to say im not upset with hotel it is what it is. I am just writing this hoping to help someone else out . I have stayed in cheap hotels in Nicaragua for $20 that was cleaner than this place. We arrived and entered our NO SMOKING room , first thing we had to do was take the comforter off the bed cause there was cigarette burns all over it. They only provide 1 sheet and it is paper thin so we slept with the AC off so we wouldn't get cold. When I went to use the bathroom the Bathroom door hit the toilet and wouldn't close. In the morning I stepped out of bed right on a piece of gum . I turned on the bathroom light and a small roach ran over my wife's hairbrush. I had never been so glad to get away from a place in my life. Seriously .

I'm a graduate of Florida Southern College, so every time I visit my friends in Lakeland, I make sure to stay here. Not only is the hotel very well situated, it is well worth the money. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the staff is friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking not to spend a lot of money on a hotel at the same time require the hotel to be close to the good restaurants/bars.

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter

The room were recently renovated and were clean. the bed was comfortable and the front desk staff was very friendly.
Great location, the motel is close to many fast food restaurants so its convenient to get food at night.

Room Tip: Ask for the King rooms they are really good. Thats what i stayed in.

Very close to downtown Lakeland. An older property. Front desk staff friendly and helpful with local knowledge. Rooms are decent; ours didn't have a TV remote, which was irritating. Another quirk: the bathroom door hit the toilet when it closed. Units close to road rather noisy (we were on the uphill side; downhill might be quieter).

I have stayed at this Inn several times in the past three years.
I will Never stay there again.
Although the Management has apologized they have done nothing but convey how unfortunate and out of control the situation is.
The Hotel manager put some marked quarters in the room claiming he is trying to catch the thief.

This place is absolutely terrible! There was mildew on the walls, cigarette butts on the floor, cigarette burns in pillow cases, bathroom was dirty! Let's see what else....lifted the pillow and saw a booger, so that means sheets weren't cleaned well. There was a hole in the bathroom door and tissue in the hole where the door lock use to be. There was a hole in the bathroom ceiling and there was no phone or remote control in the room. The place is really old and should be renovated, and if not it needs to be torn down! When we complained to management, all they said was "wow that it unusual." I usually do not write reviews, but I couldn't resist this time. If you see this place, pass it up!
