I changed rooms 3 times and still was disgusted about the condition of the room, bathroom, rust int he bathroom everywhere etc. Thankfully, it was only one night. We paid $ 98 for the room.... More

I didn't realize that I was unable to cancel my reservation. After cruising I went to the Best Florida Resort and found out my room was flooded. So I... More
