2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

We stayed here two nights recently. It was pretty bad. The 2 stars are only because the lady who checked us in was very friendly and helpful and the Denny's Restaurant on the property is great.

After checking in and finding our room, the keys wouldn't unlock the door. The woman at the desk came out and tried with no luck so we were given a different room. The second room was a smoking room so we immediately went back and got keys to a third room. Similar problem with keys in 3rd room, but on the 4th or 5th try, we got in. The room did not smell very good but we didn't want to bother trying for a 4th room. Turns out - most of the door locks in this hotel have problems.

The room appeared clean. When we moved the chair to block the A/C fan from blowing directly on the bed, we found an box of condoms on the floor behind the chair. Don't know if it was empty or not, we didn't touch it. Either the chair or the floor near the chair smelled like urine (hopefully it was dog urine). The mattress on the bed was encased in plastic and made a crunchy noise when you rolled over in bed...very uncomfortable. Next day found a largish cockroach crawling around on top of the desk. I realize that roaches are pretty commonplace in Florida but it still...it definitely added to the "ick factor". When we reported the condoms, the smell, the lock problems and the roach to the front desk on checkout - there was no apparent reaction - no apology - no surprise. They cut some money off our bill and sent us on our way. If they had at least acted as if they were surprised and sorry, I probably would not have written this review.

The best thing I can say about this place is it is pretty cheap and the restaurant is convenient.

Dear Linda,


Thank you for your review of our property. We apologize for the unpleasant experience while you were our guest. We did try to accomodate you while you were here, and if we could not, then we would have refunded you so you could have found other accomdations. The fact is that you did spend the entire night in the room, and were given a discount and an apology. We apologize again and do hope that you will give us another opportunity to rectify this situation. I would be more than happy to work out the details if you would contact me if you are interested. Thank you again.


Sincerely,



Donna Oglesby, General Manager
