At check in the room was filthy and beds unmade. We asked for our money back but they would not give it to us. We threatened to call our credit card co and they put us in a hotel across the street. It said it was AAA on a flyer on their desk. It was a huge complex where unsavory...

Filled with roaches, no telephones, what a complete dump. Couldn't get the room key to work so they game me a master key for all the rooms. Demanded my money back, so they gave me a different room with only dead roaches! This was a very bad experience and I am planning litigation.

Bath towels were the size of my hand towels at home. Room had mold and water damage evident in the ceiling. Only trash/linen pick up daily, no making of...

Stay Away! Most of the room are occupied by "permanent tennants." We killed about 15 roaches our first night there. I personally watched 2 drug transactions go down in the parking lot....in the middle of the afternoon. The dealers hung out just outside of our room in the stairwell. My buddy was asked on two seperate occasions if he wanted...

I'm a lifelong Floridian who wanted to finally see the Strawberry Festival in Plant City. So my wife and I got the tickets well in advance. But the hotel room ... I think I waited too long to reserve. NOTHING in Plant City was available. So I backed out a bit, via Hotels.com, to Lakeland and found this really reasonable-priced...

No maid service, no maintenace. Lights don't work, they didn't make the beds, no clean towels, holes in the walls, FILTHY. We were forced to stay...

I stayed at the Snowbirds Inn for one night and I was very pleased with the room and value. We got the room for $50 (including tax) and for the quality of the room I'd say it was a great value. We had a mini-kitchen with a fridge and microwave, table, and a recliner! Another plus about this motel is...
