It was late and I had an important meeting the next day. I was given a room that smelled like paint, smoke, and animal. I brought my own pillow and fan, so I thought I was tired enough to sleep through it. I woke up sick with my lungs burning.

Room Tip: Check your room first and take a deep breath. Check the carpet to see if it's sticky.

While being in FL to visit my grandfather in hospice care I stayed in Rm 220 for one night. Sindi was very accomodating when I was originally in a room that was next to a family with a lot of kids and loud television noise. She immediately moved me to a room on the other side of the motel. Parking was directly under the room, everything was clean, and the breakfast was the same as when I have stayed in a Hampton Inn. While it's not a luxurious hotel - the service was far better than the Days Inn down the street that I left while watching the desk clerk be rude to an elderly couple. When I got home last night I realized I left my glasses and called the desk - they have them and we have made arrangemnets to have them sent back here up north. It was clean, safe, and the service was good. I don't think you can ask for more at such an affordable price!

I booked this hotel through Hotwire and they did refund me and book me another hotel. If you know anything about them you know they don't refund,that's how BAD it was! This is my first bad review of a hotel so I'm not the kind to pick over nothing. I checked in on 3-26-13 and going into the room found a 2x4 half on the bed and half on the floor with nails sticking out as if someone tried to kill another human being in a bar fight. Then the head board was ripped off,no drawers on the dresser that were not broken,filth on the floor all over,bed bugs and best of all,ROACHES crawling out of the fridge! I called Hotwire and they called the front desk who said I was lying that they did not have a roach problem. Luckily I took pictures of the room and marched them down to the front desk and had it out with the lying front desk woman! Don't risk your life by staying there!

Room Tip: They offered to give me another room but once a German roach is on the property you will bring them...

While visiting family in the Port Richey area I stayed in Room 118 for three nights. The lobby and breakfast room were newly renovated and bright. Service was good and I was able to park just outside my room two of the three nights. The room itself , while clean, was a little overdue for renovation. Although I didn't use them, there was a microwave and small refrigerator in the room. The heater worked well when I needed it (always disconcerting in Florida). On the negative side the door communicating with the next room let in conversations on occasion, the television remote skipped channels, and the sink had no plug. Overall I was comfortable in this hotel.

The cold weather in Florida is always disconcerting for us as well! It is great to hear you enjoyed your stay with us during your time in Port Richey. Having the ability to park your vehicle close to your room is also comforting for some. We hope to see you in Port Richey again soon!
