“Don't stay here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

We reserved a King room, and upon check in they gave us a double bed room. The bedspreads were stained and NASTY. But the city was booked, so we had to stay there. I left my Samsung Tablet next to the bed and I forgot to pick it up upon leaving, and they still say it was not there, when GPS indicated otherwise. They still say they don't have it, so someone there stole it. The next morning when I asked the manager about why we didn't get a KING ROOM reserved by choice hotels, he told us it was just a "suggestion"...really??? Horrible experience.

Room Tip: Don't stay here

Believe all of the worst of the other reviews. Delta dumped us here after a cancelled flight, we left after 15 minutes not wishing to risk our safety in such a dilapidated dump. Delta will be hearing from us!

this is THE WORST hotel I have stayed in Florida. DISGUSTING room with dirty everything. My pillow cases looked like they had been used before (several times). I literally used my tee shirts as pillow cases as i was afraid to touch the surface of them. The sheets had "fixins" on them. I checked late, midnight, so there was no way to get the room cleaned. FILTHY! The coffee pot had old coffee stains at the bottom. The worst part is they were they charged $120 ! That room at $25 is a rip off. Wi FI did not work, nor the remote. Awful, just awful. If you are a business person avoid this flea bag hotel.

Room Tip: Pick another hotel at all costs.

Check in was fine, we got to the room, it didn't smell clean (musty & moldy) The bathroom was moldy. The last night my dog brought me a used condom. I would not recommend this hotel. The outside of the hotel needs a lot of cleaning, too.

The room we stayed in smelled musty/moldy. Mold was in the washroom. The telephone did not work at all times. Service was horrible after we reported insufficient toilet paper no one came to give us supplies. The only consolation was a referral by a friendly desk clerk to a nice local Chinese restaurant called yummy Chinese food packed with snowbirds and retirees.

Where to begin....Drapes broken and nailed to wall, cigarette burn in god awful filthy chair, stains on comforter that would scare a CSI team, cigarette butt floating in toilet, mold on shower curtain, filthy refrigerator, shower head height is ok if you are vertically challenged (like under 5 foot tall), and slept with light on and chair and table propped in front of door....was hoping not to end up on an episode of Cops. If there was a highlight. ..The girl at the front desk was nice.

When we walked into our room, there was a used bra laying on one of the beds, there was a huge stain on both comforters, the towels in the bathroom had been used, three cockroaches came up from the sink and shower, and the toilet did not work. I went and asked for a different room, only to find out that our next room was just as bad. In this room, there were huge stains on the comforters, our door would not fully shut or lock, there was a dead bug smeared on one of our sheets, and the toilet stopped working again. The next morning we told the staff how awful our experience had been and she was extremely unprofessional about the whole situation and argued with me when I asked for a refund. I would rather be shot in the foot than stay here again. Lastly, if you are a family wanting to stay here, I would highly advise you not to because a family would not be safe staying here.

Room Tip: Just pick a different hotel to stay at. Don't stay here!
