“Much worse than expected”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

Inexpensive yes but worth the cost no. Ants in the room. Dirty carpets. Smelled stale and old. In major need of renovation. Beds very uncomfortable. For its age and condition the hospitality staff so as good as they can. Friendly desk staff. Towels, tub, linnens, toilet, refrigerator, coffee maker, and pillows all were clean. I was scared though at 8 pm when police surrounded the area doing a manhunt inclusive of helicopters. Then at 4 am and again at 5 am yelling first from next door then from the parking lot. I didn't realize how bad the neighborhood was until the nightfall came. Left at daybreak in fear of well being. I will not stay again. Nice staff and convenient to the surrounding businesses can't make up for the remaining issues.

I arrived very late and left very early. All was good for the time I was there. Son in hospital there.

I will never book this hotel again. The carpets were dirty, mold, bugs in the light fixtures. We were only there for one night so we sucked it up but will never do that again. The breakfast was also a joke, no scramble guts but they have boiled eggs (what).

Room Tip: Only good thing was the distance from Busch Gardens.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

This was a short weekend trip to see my daughter at college. I wanted something reasonably priced, close to college and a little bigger room than the average hotel room. This fit the bill. For 2 nights it was only 123 (show your motor club card for extra discount) Your stay includes a good breakfast of waffles, fruit, cereal, bagels, french toast, juice, hard boiled eggs, and pastries. I got the 2 bedroom unit but be warned, it really isn't 2 bedroom, it is 2 rooms. One has 2 beds in it and the other has a pull out couch with microwave and mini fridge. That could be deceiving to most people but I looked at pictures and kind of figured that was what you get. When checking in, one lady was questioning why her unit wasn't a 2 bedroom. It does sleep 6 if you want to cram everyone in. The rooms are average but comfortable. I saw some reviewers say it was dirty, it does have a little musty smell and I could tell they didn't sweep under the bed but for the most part it was clean. The pool area is a little small but nice and it looks like they took out the jacuzzi. Free newspapers and coffee in the lobby. Lots of cheaper restaurants around that deliver free (pizza, Italian). I got 4 flyers through the door within 1/2 hour of being here and the prices are pretty good. I would recommend this hotel for those on a budget and want a little more room.

Room Tip: The place was booked solid so I would suggest making reservations a couple weeks in advance and use...
