Was quoted price for Sweet Sixteen B-day party for my daughter. Awaited callback from chef and staff to organize details regarding food and decor. Never heard back. Called back several times over 3 weeks and finally told we had to rent ENTIRE hotel to have party! 3 wasted weeks and now have to find new venue. Website states absolutely nothing...

First, they won't honor your reservation price. They charge rack rate. Second, this hotel has fleas. The a/c is a small window unit that doesn't cool adequately. There is a gap around the door an inch wide, the ice machine is broken and vending machines are all empty and no longer serviced. I could go on but you should have...

We booked this online for a visit to check out Tarpon Springs. We booked what they called a pet friendly efficiency. The room was dirty, from the "kitchen" which consisted of a filthy microwave, stove and fridge to the tile floors, bedspreads, and bathroom. The manager was arrogant and unhelpful. There was a lot of evening noise and activity with...

When we arrived the front Door was locked and there was a Huge Pit Bull laying in front of the door. Once we checked in we went up to our room on the 3rd floor walking across a plywood floor praying not to fall through. We got into our room which Stank of mold and could barely take the heat....

Really old tired hotel. If there are renovations, can't tell where. There was an approximately 90 year old man obviously living in one of the rooms...leaving his door open most of the time and sitting outside. If you ask for early check in, you'll be charged $55. Mold in the shower, remote didn't work, only kitchen utensils was one pot...

The family who runs the inn is nice and trying to update it. However, the place is currently dirty, in rough shape, and could benefit from some serious elbow grease. In generally -- I wouldn't recommend the hotel in the "current condition" to anyone but the most forgiving customers. I'm not a picky traveler. Motel 6 or the $29.95 or...

The management of this hotel changed about a year ago (2015). So older reviews about staff no longer apply. We were treated kindly. We were given a choice of 2 rooms for the same rate, one of which was like a studio apartment with a kitchenette. The location is right across the street from the waterfront where dolphins and manatees...
