Stayed only one night over Memorial Weekend out of desperation. The rooms were old, dated and dirty. The bed linens were torn and didn't fit. There was a leak on the outside by the stairs going up to our room with a puddle on the floor. We had to duck around the drip or have it drip on us. The... More

I stayed here for 2 days last June, because it was in close proximity to where I had business. I only stayed the second night due to an offered discount. This place actually looks very nice on the outside. Looks like a nice little quaint facility. NOT! Once you stay here once you will probably have a lifetime of memories... More

Exposed electrical conduit, light fixtures don't work, tile floor looks clean till you look at the bottom of your feet. Tub fixture does not work, so no water. Front desk tells you to pull real hard on fixture and it will turn on. Pull too hard it comes out of the wall, Really? 1 night is not worth $144.00. In... More

Hotel is very outdated. The room was hot and smelly. You can tell the sheets had not been changed as there were dark dirt stains on them. The beds are old and rough looking as well. Bathroom was disgusting and had hair on the toliet, so that was,not cleaned before we arrived either. We searched for other rooms in town... More

The General Manager is very rude. They have different rates for different people. I paid $129/night, my friend booked at the same time, his rate $99/night and when I checked him, I overheard the manager offer $80/night. They had 2 rooms reserved and argued with me and I had to show him my confirmation. When I asked for 2 keys... More

Our rate was 89 for single, but you requested a king bed, and you used online booking site where we have to pay a commission. There were no fights in the parking lot as you mentioned. More

This establishment advertises itself as the most affordable lodging in the area and having scoped out our options that might well be true. The fellow at check-in was overly effusive at first and subdued during all subsequent encounters. The room in which we stayed for about 4 days had not been renovated. Efforts had been made to keep it clean,... More

This hotel is in a good location with a Publix down the road and near Port Charlotte and has a pool in the back and our friend said laundry facilities. Landscaping is neat and that is where it ends.$111 a night with taxes but should be $69 a night. I did not expect the Hyatt but I should receive good... More

My friend and I had been traveling all day and stopped here for some rest and relaxation. The grounds and the landscaping were simply stunning. We enjoyed ourselves and spent some quality time by the pool, which was nice to have for such an inexpensive hotel. We also found a good restaurant nearby that sealed the night for us. We... More

I don't have much good to say about this place. The only thing that was decent was the pool except for the ice water that was inside it. It was clean though. The room was ok except for the batroom. That was terrible. The bathtub was the worst and you need to let the water run for about 5 minutes... More
