Dingy, smelly and I got up during the night and turned on the lights in the bathroom and there were bugs scrambling around the sink. I had stayed here several years before but it has been sold and the property has gone down hill. We packed our bags, checked them to make sure no bugs were in therm and will... More

I stayed at Stay Inn, in Bartow, FL for about a week. My stay was very pleasant and all the staff were very polite. My room was cleaned in a timely manner and fresh supplies were restocked daily. Although I didn't have time to use the pool, it looked clean and inviting. I plan on going back soon, as I... More

It's an old motel, it's not the Ritz but you don't pay very much for the room. The rooms here are $69.00 a night and at the only other hotel in Bartow they go from $141.00 to $170.00 a night. And as we all know, you get what you pay for. The hotel is used mostly by contract workers for... More

I had to be in town for one night on business. This was the closest hotel so I figured, how bad could it be? Dark, dingy, and smelly are the words I would use to describe this place. The "breakfast" was a wrapped danish like what you would get from a vending machine.

Thru work, we were booked at this hotel. Very unpleasant experience. It is an older building and you could definitely tell it! The ac units leaked water right outside of every room-I almost fell do to slipping on the water. If you are hungry or thirsty in the morning do not plan on getting satisfied at their offer of breakfast.... More

We had to stay here due to an emergency situation. We were told that all the people that were in our party had to present our driver's licenses. They took a copy of them. After we got home, our credit card had been compromised. Someone took out a cash advance of $500.00, and they did it in person. It was... More

We were at this hotel for one night, and as soon as we walked in the door the room was horrible. It was very damp and smelled like an old mop, not to mention the carpet was dirty. The refrigerator and microwave were there but nothing worked. Towels were limited and when we asked for more the manager only gave... More

The good: room 103 was not near the highway, and with the air conditioner fan going we couldn't hear a thing; the beds were comfortable, and overall the room was clean. If you need to stay near Bartow this is a good choice for the price, but it you can travel a bit further west or south then skip it.... More

It was late and we needed to find a hotel that was pet friendly. This hotel was average at best. For the most part it was clean, but old and rather worn. We had trouble getting on their wifi. It was noisy. It was not worth the $144.00 it cost us to stay there, that's for sure.
