Stayed for a night for an event. Check in was quick and friendly,and the first floor was nice and cool, but upon stepping out on the 4th floor we were hit with 88 degrees. NEVER have I been subjected to no air conditioning in the common areas of a hotel. This is Florida in July, and in my opinion, is inexcusable. From some of the other guests and comments here, this seems to be the norm. The rooms were cooled by window AC units, but these weren't strong enough to dehumidifiy the sapping moisture invading from the hall.
That said, the rooms were good size. Ours had bunk beds, a nice touch, but other than two flimsy (one broken) chairs, nothing to sit on but the bed. TV in the kids area didn't work. Bed was in need of replacement. Three towels for a 4 person room.
For me, I will not stay here again.
