“Questionable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

This was not our first choice only because of the high Friday price. It was noisy-the expressway traffic sounded like it was right outside our window. The entryway smelled like someone or some pet had urinated on the carpet.
We heard some shouting during the night--it had to have been from the parking lot outside our room. Got kind of a creepy feeling about that.
The breakfast was worthless--didn't even stop to get a cup of coffee in the morning.

The door that led outside from our room did not lock, it was right on the interstate- NOISY, smelled horrible, only 2 towels, and bugs everywhere!! Crawling On the walls, the table- worst hotel I've ever stayed at, and I'm a frequent traveler. I would not recommend this hotel, I'd rather sleep in the car with my husband and 3 children than stay here again!

Rooms are spacious, but quite stuffy and mildew-smelling. Carpet was fairly new, though mattresses were the same skinny ones you find in many Ramada properties. Lobby and most of the first floor was redolent of a scent I can only describe as "hot cat food." Members of my group witnessed an entire group of (albeit chaperoned) underage teens being admitted to a karaoke show where alcohol was being served. I don't know if this is legal in FL or not. Housekeeping plays the old gambit of knocking on your door to wake you up, despite the presence of a DND sign, then apologizing and knocking on the next door down. I can't stand when they do that.
