“Horrible and Rude”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

The entire hotel needs to be renovated from top to bottom. The wet dank smell is the first thing you notice as soon as you walk into the building. The carpet and and tiles are stained with water and dark spots. The on site restaurant was dark, and the workers so rude they turned all the lights off on the guests to get them to leave while we were eating, the reason that was given "we are trying to conserve energy." as soon as we left they turned the light on. I WILL NOT recommend this hotel.

We stopped overnight on our way to the Fla. panhandle. Although the hotel is a little dated, the room was clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was friendly and with a senior discount, our rate was only $71. The breakfast was in a restaurant setting and very good. A plus is the large indoor area with the pool and an airplane hanging from the ceiling. The hotel is in an industrial area so restaurants are not close by. The "riverside" neighborhood has a lot of old houses and nice restaurants. Strongly recommend Prima Piatti's.

Stopped here on our way to Naples, FL but won't stop again. The room was very dated and in poor condition. The room we had was on the greet side and was very noisy until almost midnight. Breakfast was plentiful but not memorable.

Room Tip: If you stay here ask for an interior room away from the noisy street.

Hotel was pull up and park at most rooms. Rooms were clean and well stocked. A full hot breakfast buffet was served in the mornoing and the restaurant is open for lunch also.Breakfast is included in room charge and was good and hot. Room was not a bad value for the area.

Our room was nice and large, but smelled very smokey, despite being a non-smoking room. It was clean, but old. I saw several baby roaches - yuk! The atrium area is pretty cool. The rooms that face the parking lot are VERY noisy due to constant truck traffic (and they were working on some of the rooms right near us). Be sure to ask for an inside room.

Room Tip: Inside room

On February 23, 2013 my afjrotc had our military ball in the conference rooms here. We had been reserving it and talking to the coordinator on and off since october 2012. We discussed using the projector for the senior slide show during our 1-hour buffet. We discussed how we could decorate the room to make it look pleasant and presentable enough for a military ball. We also discussed times in which we would meet and on the day of the event, set up. On one occassion, i had fellow cadets of mine go and meet with the coordinator and discuss little details with her. When they got there, the lady tried to rush them, and in the middle of the meeting she just left because it was time for her to be off work. We over looked it and continued to plan like we had discussed previously. A few days before the ball, we called and confirmed the times for us to come in and decorate and on the day of when my military ball committe and i went in to decorate nothing was done. I payed the extra to have both rooms combined into one and the man in charge that night (not the lady i planned everything with) told me that they wouldnt open the second room because i didnt have as many people coming as i expected and i had to semi-argue with him to make them open it. Then they had tables without place settings and i had to bug them about that. The manager came out and told my sgt that one of our cadets had went in the back room and moved his personal electronics (which nobody did). When it came time to decorating, we were going to hang things from the ceiling, like discussed with that lady, and they told us we couldnt do it because they didnt want us on ladders (which i understand but they should have told us that when we specifically asked about hanging things from the ceilings). Again we over looked all of that and continued on with our night. The DJ came and was fixing to help us set up for the slide show when i realized they never gave us the projector. I asked for it and they informed me that after 5 months of discussing it, i didnt reserve it and they gave it to other people to use. That ruined about an hour of our plans. Then, when it came time for the buffet, the servers were EXTREMELY rude. The menu said it included water, sweet tea, AND coffee. My Col as well as parents and several cadets asked for coffee and nobody ever recieved any. One female waitress lady got extremely rude with my sgt as well. Then, the DJ asked for a glass of water, and it took them over and hour to bring it out to him. Everything after that was okay, until the manager comes out and informs our DJ that he needs to rap it up by 10 p.m. Since day one, we discussed the military ball being from 6-11 p.m. So, in the end we had to close down miltary ball an hour prior to what we expected. if it wasn't for my cadets having such a great time thanks to the wonderful DJ bean, i would have rated this hotel with one circle. The staff is extremely rude and disrespectful, and the coordinator was in the wrong for not being there when she was the one we discussed everything with. Not happy with this service AT ALL!

We stayed here in May during the Jax Jazz Fest and found it to be a good deal for the money. We had a nice room and the hotel is in a convenient location. The front desk staff were helpful with a special billing request we had.
Our downside is that there was a wedding in the indoor pool area all 3 days we were there so it was unavailable during most of our stay. The breakfast was not as good as it should have been. The spa/whirlpool was closed.
