My daughter and I were attending FSU orientation and stayed only one of the two nights we had reserved and payed for. We arrived late at night for check in and upon trying to get into our room, the door would not open. The staff said that we had to turn the handle up because it was broken by guests - why it had not been fixed we do not know! As soon as we entered the room we were disgusted by how very dirty the room appeared to be. We did not even want to walk on the dark carpet with bare feet - felt sticky! The outdated floral bedspread was old and stained. I checked the mattress for evidence of bedbugs and there were specks of dust and dirt here and there (where you might find bedbugs), but was not completely assured these were not bugs. I did not see any live bugs. Alarm clock did not work. Did not feel this property is very well maintained and is probably just barely kept up to code (a bit questionable though!) Overall, the staff seemed friendly and helpful and the location is within walking distance to FSU - these are the only good things I can say about our visit. This hotel may only be good for the party crowd who come to the games and need to stumble back to their rooms after a long night of drinking.
Side note - I did not complain to the front desk about our visit, I really don't think it would have made a difference in how they manage their property. It would be nice if they put a little bit of money back into the place to make it a nicer stay for their guests!
