Checked in to this hotel for an overnight business trip to Ocala. Sure, it's a convenient location, BUT- it was possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The room was smelly, musty and dirty; I asked the clerk at the front desk about the smell & his excuse was that the carpet had just been cleaned and that HOPEFULLY the smell would go away once the room cooled down (it felt as though the air had not been on at all for quite some time - could this be ONE of the reasons the room smelled so badly??) Went out to grab a quick dinner in the hopes that the room would a) cool down and b) not smell quite so bad. No such luck. SO, I decided to ask the front desk clerk if I could change rooms (shift change must have occured as there was someone new at the desk). Anyhow, he happpily switched me to a new room, stating that I must be a non-smoker and be overly sensitive to the smell. Not so. I am indeed a smoker but this stench was well beyond a 'smoky' room. The room lacked basic amenities (a clock, waste basket, extra toilet paper); the carpets, windows, floors & bathroom were dirty. The interesting thing was that BEFORE I checked in, I specifically asked if the rooms were clean, that I was looking for a decent room for an overnight stay and possibly 'future' stays as I have some business to tend to locally in the upcoming months. The front desk clerk assured me that the rooms were indeed clean, and that I would surely be back. Uh, I don't think so. Not ever.
