“Awful, dirty motel!”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Stayed here because there were no vacancies in the area. We DID NOT check trip advisor before checking in here...a mistake my husband & I will NEVER make again! The bed was horribly uncomfortable where the box springs dug into your side all night. We checked in for a week and only stayed 3 days! We did not use their bathroom the entire 3 days we were there because it was so gross! After the first night, we bought a sleeping bag and slept on top of that on the bed, as the sheets were clean but very stained! They have a 4-burner stove and a microwave but no cooking signs all over the room. We found out why the second night! I woke up with roaches crawling all over the bed and on us!! I went and got the manager, Peta, and she told me in broken english that "this is florida and florida has bugs"! I was practically crying because I was so grossed out over it. Their website is a joke and a big fat LIE! They say they have coffee makers in the rooms, a whirlpool, and a continental breakfast but they DON"T! I saw other tenants bring their dogs in the pool...that was AFTER we had went in the pool the day before and my husband got up the next morning with an earache! This place is SO unsanitary and other than Peta, the manager, everyone else who works there is about the rudest staff I have ever came across in the hotel/motel industry! They really DO NOT care about you and your comfort! Very inexpensive motel, and now I see why! One of the worst stays ever! Bypass this place immediately, unless of course you like roaches as friends--for they get up real close and personal to you--while you sleep!!!!

Room Tip: No room here was good!

This is the dirty version of Bates hotels.If you like sleeping on blankets that are blood stained and having cockroaches crawl across your face during the night.The false advertisement of continental breakfast was nothing but a joke.They give you the hours of 6 am to 9 am to only find a empty counter-top with left-over sugar sprinkles.Oh by the way i enjoyed a clean room but if you've got to use so much pine soil that you trigger my asthma i'll pass and don't forget the local view of youngsters rolling a joint outside your room next to the pool.

Room Tip: This place is not near clear-water Beach as advertised.

This is a terrible place. We booked online, when we arrived I knew something was wrong. There were no vacancies in the area so we stayed. People were hanging over balconies going in and out of rooms, slamming doors, hollering all night, at one point men were running down the hall, at approximately 2:30 a.m. My husband and I are in our fifties and have stayed at many hotels over the years but I have never stayed up all night because I did not feel safe until here. As far as the room the sheets had been washed but it had a big cigarette burn in it (housekeeping had to see it) the shower was clean but the furniture in the room was disgusting, what appeared to be blood on the seat of the chair and totally worn out. Do not stay here I agree with a previous review sleep in you car!

The railing outside on second floor is coming off and dangerous. No free local phone calls. If you make a call and it rings 6 times, they will charge you far a completed call.

Do not stay here. Cockroaches in kitchenette. Dirty Shower stall. Some of the lights were without bulbs. Rundown. Outdated TV and fixtures. Our rental car was more appealing to sleep in than this terrible excuse for a hotel. We left 2 hours after we got there and they will not refund our money that was payed up front thru Expedia for a 3-night stay. I am willing to concede the first night's payment. But they owe me for the last 2. We went to a Quality Inn nearby and it was like heaven compared to this place! I am currently disputing the charge through my bank because although Expedia supposedly tried, it was to no avail. I have learned my lesson and will check out the reviews on Tripadvisor from now on!

This is a rundown place and the front desk representative was an absolute stupid. She does not know anything. Recently they are renovating everything, so this place is a mess right now. No faucet is in perfectly working condition.
