I really wanted to give four stars to this hotel but a few little things made that impossible.
The hotel is situated on US19, this is a busy road but road noise was not evident in the room. There is nothing really close to make this hotel worth more than a very short stay. Tarpon Springs is probably worth a visit but it is really commercialised and a bit of a tourist trap.
The rooms are OK but the dark décor does make them slightly depressing. Our room didn't have a bath tub which was a pity. The shower, though, was large and efficient.
The kitchen was functional and served it's purpose although the flooring hadn't been fitted very well.
The room windows added to the grubbiness of the room as they were in need of being cleaned.
The bedding was worn and creased, it looked slept in but probably just hadn't been pressed. On our final morning we even found an ant crawling in the bed.
The wireless internet connection worked well.
Breakfast was good with plenty of choice, although unlike the Hampton Inns, there were no muffins or bananas.
The staff were helpful and pleasant.
This hotel has a lot of potential if only the basics were a bit better.
