This hotel was where we stayed for USF graduation. It was OK for that. The hotel is older and is showing its age, however, it was clean and served our purpose for a place to stay over while attending graduation. The price was right and that was the determining factor.

I stayed here back in January of 2013. I was so disgusted and disappointed. The only good thing about this place was the location. 7-11 across the street, McD's, Waffle House, and Jerk Hut only a 3 minute walk away. That was the only good thing. To start, the hallways on the first and second floor were both disgusting and gave me a bad vibe about my room. I entered my room and realized that there was a hole in my bed sheet. It had burn marks around it. Keep in mind.. I got a non smoking room. The chair looked like it had some sort of mold or something on it. I stayed away from it. The bathroom... DIRTY and NASTY. The counters were kinda clean. The shower floor had dirt all over it and wouldn't come off even after I tried rinsing it. The toilet was just... awful. It had something on the rim of the inside. It looked like some fungus or something. It was just disgusting and unsanitary. The awkward part is how low it was to the floor... This stay was horrible and I do NOT plan to stay here again. This place needs to be checked by an inspector. So unsanitary, disgusting, nasty, and just awful.
