First of all, they don't make it quite clear but this is a MOTEL, not a HOTEL. All of the rooms are on the outside of the " hotel " facing a very busy street or the pool area in the back. Upon entering, we found the lobby very nice and everyone we met that worked the front desk was pleasant. They then give you a map of the motel, as the set up is so bizarre that you actually do need one to find your room. We passed a little computer center that let us go online and print a document. It wasn't very clean or tidy, but served it's purpose.
The room itself seemed clean, except for the carpet. It wasn't horrible, but had a couple of stains and would just be better off being replaced. I should mention we INSTANTLY noticed an overwhelming smell of commercial grade disinfectant spray. It was so strong that we could still smell it pretty good upon leaving the next day at 11am. Bleh. Our room happened to be on the side facing a very busy, main street. If you're unfortunate enough to be on that side of the hotel, you'll hear cars and trucks alllll night and day. The temperature in the room was fine, but I had to keep the AC unit on high all night just to kill some of the noise. It was a chilly night here in Florida and we could feel the cold air rushing in through the sides and under the door. ( That actually ended up helping, since we had to use the heat all night ) The tv got about 10 channels, 4 of which are sports. It was a decent size, but the picture quality wasn't very good. The bathroom is too small, but tolerable. The pool area actually looked quite nice, but it was too cold for us to try it out. There's no hot tub. =( The breakfast area is in the " hotel " part of the motel and is large and clean. They had a very good selection of food and a friendly staff.
I got this room free through points on my credit card, but I believe the going rate is $79. If I had paid $79, I would have left 15mins after getting to my room and asked for my money back.
