This place is awful. It's dirty, loud, and in desperate need of a full redo. There were cracks above the doors so light came in. The beds are very small. The bathrooms were not cleaned. If you needed anything like a towel, they said they had no one that could bring it to you so you had to go to the office and get it.

Dump is probably being kind. I don't think the carpet, furniture, drapes, lamps, etc. have been replaced since the place opened. It was the only option I had on a Gators football game day. If I had not had my daughter with me I may have opted ot sleep in my car instead. Drive to Ocala if you must, but don't stay here.

How I wish we had looked at reviews before staying there. Door didn't shut tight, air ran loudly ALL night. None of the lights worked except the bathroom and over sink. Bathtub was all peeling where they had it recoated. All the finsh coming off the mirrors. Refrigerator did not work. If it hadn't been so late, I would have asked for my money back and went somewhere else. Every time someone went out their door, it slammed so hard it made everyone elses windows rattle. The air conditioners looked like they were falling out of the walls as you walked along the sidewalk. Clerk was nice upon check in, but when we went to check out, she couldn't get off the phone long enough to wait on us.
