“Cheap VS Gross.”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

I have stayed in a lot of bad places. I always have the theory of, I'm only here to sleep. Yes, this place is cheap. But a big difference between cheap and gross. This place is just gross.

The cable didn't work, they say they have wifi but, we had no wifi. Not even any access at all.

The room smelt like mildew. We also felt very very unsafe, and each day (stayed for the weekend, due to Bush Gardens) we would pack everything, back into the car. Never have I felt the need to put the desk chair up against the door for extra protection, and here I did, each night.

Yes, this place is cheap and yes its right across from Bush Gardens. But trust me....if you are looking for a deal this isnt it.

Never again!
