“unsafe location”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

we booked our trip through southwest airline way in advance and were very excited to use their website for air hotel and rent a car ( one stop shop)
Our trip was for pleasure and fun.
We assumed since we are getting hotel through southwest website it had to be a good one.
we were very disappointed as soon as we started following the direction and finding more and more homeless people on the streets, goodwill, title loan and bar-wire and fences around every house.
first we were greeted by a very heavy set unprofessional front desk staff who was not helpful at all and then to our old smelly room.
we parked our rental car right in front of ground floor room and continued to peek out to make sure it was still there.
next day we looked around to move to a different hotel but it was too late to get a decent deal there and we end up staying 3 days instead of 6 and moved out of there to a different La Quinta in Naples Florida few hours away from this one but very better cleaner and surprisingly same price.
we just want people to be aware of the situation in this hotel so no body get as disappointed as we were.

Room Tip: my suggestion will be read reviews before you book any hotel.

If your going for a place with a pool- dont stay here . They have a pool- but i wouldnt swim in it.. free breakfast and wifi- a laundry room was good enough to make me happy- BUT it wasnt my final destination- just temporary until my hotel had openings

Stayed for a weekend, not bad but wouldn't stay for a vacation. Our room had a damp feel but looked clean and no musty smell. No frills breakfast. Allowed pets, and for the dog show went over their 20 pound limit to allow my rottweiler to stay. No cell service/internet in the room and was worried about the dark parking lot at night with the amount of men standing out there on cell phones all night long. Staff was very friendly.

I was up for an overnight event and found this hotel on one of the main roads. The breakfast was no frills but clean as was the room. The only drawback was the wi-fi was horrible and completely non functional. Not for a vacation but a decent place for a short stay.
